🍵 Neo I've been trying to read more lately... Any book suggestions? Give me something depressing
💻 Kernel If you are looking for non-fiction, I've been reading Why we sleep. Lack of sleep, even only a few hours, is really really bad according to science.

Miso I can't believe it's already sunday evening. Weekends go by so fast.
💻 Kernel Time flies when you are having fun! Love the Halloween invitation poster.

🧐 Nrmn Hello and welcome to this beautiful new week, full of chances and possibilities! How do you all feel on this Monday?
💻 Kernel I had a pretty terrible morning that ended with a nap. Things were much better afterwards :)
💻 Kernel Almost completed my sign up for tilde.town and then accidentally went back one page, deleting all my answers.
👨‍💻 Matthieu V. I had an account there ! But I lost my SSH key ):
Rsm Ouch!
⌨️ Joseph I applied here and at tilde.club after reading this. Both seem like such cool little corners of the Internet.
☕ Tk Master Just sharing some quote for the day, have a nice week everyone! "Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune." - Jim Rohn
💻 Kernel I hope this holds true for Europe as well. I dropped out of my masters this week and going to move from EE to more software stuff at work. Let's go self-education!

😀 Tom Anyone here ever use Chatroulette? I feel like chatting with a random person. Well... I just tried. After a bunch of guys immediately passing on me, one guy sounded like he was reading prose, but kept the same inflection as I tried to talk with him. I had a hard time hearing, and it didn't seem like we would have a good conversation, so I ended the session. Chat42.online was a bit better. Text-only, met a couple of people, but most there want to talk dirty.
💻 Kernel IRC is great for chat-only random person conversations.

🧐 Nrmn Looks like you're not using unicode then. You should really strive for unicode. Check out the /etc/locales file for lines ending with UTF-8, for example en_US.UTF-8. You can also check out following wiki page: wiki.archlinux.org...
💻 Kernel Fixed. Thank you very much! kernel-pancake.nl/...

🧐 Nrmn Are you using Latin - 1 encoding instead of utf8? Is that a Linux? What is `echo $LANG` give you?
💻 Kernel Using en_US on Raspbian 10
🧐 Nrmn Are there any twtxt users here? (github.com/buckket...)
💻 Kernel I cannot get it to work, getting a '''latin-1' codec can't encode character" error when I call twtxt.

💻 Kernel Discovered Scarfolk today (scarfolk.blogspot.com). For more information please reread this post.
🤔 David Lord. That first post about the children spooked me out.
💩 Niklas Do I understand correctly that your media is stored redundantly on both drives and one of those is your working hard drive? Are both hard drives always connected to your machine and how often do you do backups?
💻 Kernel My OS is installed on a separate SSD. Important files like personal photos are installed in the RAID partition, some also in the cloud. The two hard drives are always connected to my PC as they also contain non redundant files (mostly media) on the other partition.

💩 Niklas What's your setup for personal backups? I've just started using restic on an old HDD I found, still looking for a good (cheap) SSD to buy. I think I should use at least two hard drives for backups, maybe even do some fancy RAID... By the way, this post serves as a REMINDER TO DO YOUR BACKUPS!
💻 Kernel I have two 2TB harddrives both with 2 partitions. One partition is for various media and the other is a shared software RAID 0 across the two drives.
