Need to upgrade my cat. I’ve got a desktop but I think a laptop would get in my way less.

The Ryzen 5 3600 is a staggering 45% faster than the 2 year old R5 1600 and even beats the 8 core R7 1800X. Oh, and it beats the Intel 8700K and 9600K too.

I need to keep telling myself my first gen Ryzen 7 is fine...

Was talking about Mastodon with an old-school sysadmin guy. We reached the realization that defederating from instances with no/bad moderation is essentially the same thing as blocking open relays back when you ran your own email server: open relays always end up getting used for spam, you block 'em to protect your users.

Email was and still is the first federated social network, so it already faced a lot of the same problems; we should study its solutions (and its failures).

Me: I can't afford this as it is, I will have to get first class instead of next day shipping
Raspberry Pi: *dispatches next day delivery anyway*
Me: WHY ISN'T MY PI HERE YET

@xmakina They put a non-binary pride flag in there too. I love this so much!

Cartoon Network and Dove just dropping "intersex, non-binary" in their video like it's nbd.

It's so good to see this kind of representation in kids shows

I forgot to order a new case with my Raspberry Pi and now they're out of stock

Surprise, surprise, Raspberry Pi 4 has been launched!

Faster CPU, dual 4k HDMI support, up to 4GB RAM, USB type C, USB3 and (finally!) no more bottlenecking the ethernet port over USB2: full gigabit speeds!

Also: same old price 😍

This is Freya. Freya owns my wife’s parents. She doesn’t stop long enough to get a good photo.

On the other hand I’m not getting misgendered anymore. Maybe it’s the obvious boobs.

‪This is why I’m glad I never normally leave my house‬

It also has a Type C port but I don’t have anything to test that with.
