If I had to pick one number to define who I am. I would pick two.
This is actually very common in Brazil, where everyone uses WhatsApp (a Facebook app). You record your voice message on your end and it appears as a playable audio clip for whoever you sent it to. I'm not a fan, but it is the favorite mode of communication of a lot of people, including my extended family.
Has anyone played Tibia? It's an old-school MMORPG I've heard about for a while and today I tried it. It's loads of fun, but feels a little grindy.
It's super grindy. I played it a little, but I was more into Ragnarok.
I'm really tempted to make a wierd language for my worldbuilding thing. I can't stop thinking about the idea of a language that is half spoken and half signlanguage. Talking to someone and giving them context or other only mildly relevant information with your hands while vocalizing the important parts... Time to figure out how to do conlangs I guess haha
You mean something like Italian? lol
I host Nextcloud, GLPI (computer park software), pi-hole, wordpress (my blog) and soon my own mail server
E-mail sounds like a challenge, if it's true what everybody says about it. Maybe write a journal on that so others, myself included, can learn! ;)
I host ZNC, nextcloud, baikal for DAV, a couple of static sites, and soon a pi-hole.
Cool!! TheLounge is an IRC web client that has something similar to an irc bouncer. Really good stuff, check it out if you don't know it. And AdGuard Home is similar to Pi-Hole. I was even able to install WireGuard to be able to use it when on my phone (LTE/4G connection). Proud of myself! :)
I have an ad free experience on my Android smartphone. iOS is horrible.

Ouch, $400 hurts, but at least they managed to recover it and you (hopefully) learned a lesson along the way and won't have to deal with a similar issue ever again :)
I'm gonna build my own data center. haha
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!
Oh, funny you asked that. One of my backup HDs is failing and I was stupid enough to not have that data in a second backup. I went to a data recovery lab and got an estimate of $400 to recover it. :(
Is adblock stealing? Do you use adblock? Why? Sure, advertisers don't have the right to your attention, but don't the content creators have the right to your financial support?
The way I see it is that we don't have a say on what we want to share and what we want to keep to ourselves. Ad providers are invasive tracking machines. The only option we have is to block them, there is no middle ground. And looking at the content creator side, I bet most of them are also not happy to be dependent on ads to be financially sound. Unfortunately, they also have their hands tied and don't have many viable alternatives.
Just set up Tiddlywiki with CouchDB sync. Is that still a thing or why is everything I find some it 5 er more years old?
I miss going to the cinema so much. It was always so much more than just going to see a film. I would have a meal and a drink, either before or after; I'd read and listen to reviews; I'd carefully choose which films to see. I'm still not sure when I'll have my next cinema outing...
I read another day about the closure of the last BlockBuster and I was having a nostalgia similar to yours. The ritual of going to the store, picking up a movie among thousands of movies, preparing popcorn, sofa and blankets, dimming the lights...the end, rewind the tape, return it and do it all over.
