Weird to not see (at the time I’m writing this) any mentions of “todoist” which people on forums have loved for ages. I’m not a fan at all so I’m glad to finally not see it as frequently. My preference for work, where I have multiple categories and statuses (including a “done and waiting for the other person to confirm” status) is Trello with some automations. For home, just simple reliable entry on phone and desktop, is Ticktick. I particularly love the natural date parsing built into Ticktick (can also be done in Trello with an automation), very useful for super fast task entry and due date/time scheduling.

I rewatch shows regularly. Right now I’m watching The Lost Room, Glitch (Australian), The Sandman and Penny Dreadful again. And a Korean food series on Netflix called “A Nation Of Broth”, because I love Korean food.

2 27” 4k monitors. I do 98% of everything on the main monitor. The screen to the right contains a few sticky notes (I use Zhorn Stickies) and a Ticktick widget with all my tasks for the day. When I start up Obsidian, I have a saved Ivy Lee list that appears in a spot on the right side monitor as well. It’s just basically quick-glance scrap space.

This one was only about $8. Worth it.

Super delicious. But don’t ask me to differentiate it from smoked salmon from any other country.. :-)

I remember going on a cruise where they had a food bar open 24x7 on board; unlimited smoked salmon (amongst other things) and soda. Without exaggerating I must have eaten maybe 10-15lb of it over the course of a week. Ever since then I’ve been a huge fan. Literally.

It’s definitely an acquired taste but the flavor combo works really well. For me anyway. Full disclosure, I destroyed my tastebuds with high-chili curries during my youth so anything light in flavour isn’t always immediately appealing to me.

Capers and salmon is a very common combo. https://dishesanddustbunnies.com/smoked-salmon-cream-cheese-bagels/

Linux Note-taking app that supports CalDAV

Hi, does anybody know any notetaking app which supports sync with caldav server ? I am self-hosting a Radicale server which on android with DAVx5 client and jtx Board app works pretty well! I have searched on web but haven't found any desktop alternative to jtxBoard yet which supports this protocol. Anybody using this setup ?

What non-FOSS software have you been unable to quit?

For me, Google video search, Google books (Internet Archive is good, but doesn't always have the same stuff), Adobe InDesign (but in the process of learning LaTeX), and Typewise. As for the Google stuff, I liked Whoogle a lot, but almost all their instances seem to have been blocked or shut down. Also, apologies if this is...

+1 for Plex. Basically perfect and so much more polished than JF (which I tried on three separate occasions to force myself to like).

What lunches do you eat on a weekly basis?

I'm looking for easy and cheap options for lunches on weekdays. I mostly eat deli sandwiches and hot dogs right now and I always feel like shit after eating them. I think I need something healthier but I don't have time over my lunch hour to cook anything too fancy. What do you all do for reliable healthy easy lunches?

@Dhrystone@infosec.pub avatar

Microwave basmati rice and Trader Joe’s microwave yellow tadka dal. Addicted to it right now. Sometimes I’ll slice up half a beef sausage or Polska kielbasa, fry that in a pan for a couple minutes and throw it on top along with some sriracha sauce.

I'm Heading to Phoenix Can Anyone Recommend Anything Cool To Check Out While I'm There?

I'm heading to Phoenix, AZ next week to visit family and I was just curious if any locals would be able to recommend me anything cool to check out. I am already planning on trying to hit the end of spring training but don't have any other plans. I enjoy good food, art, geeky things like comic and games, and am also a LGBT but...

Used to love them but they’ve absolutely priced themselves out of a semi-regular customer lately. Those pasties are worth $10-12 at most. Not $18.

Simple, checkmark based, multi-user tasks app suggestions?

Anyone have any good suggestions for a simple, multi-user tasks App? I used Keep for a long while, and have been using Nextcloud for the past few years...but every Nextcloud upgrade lately it seems I hit new bugs and since I don't use Nextcloud for a while lot else I'm considering just parting ways with it....

Microsoft ToDo or Zenkit Tasks. Neither are self hosted but they work perfectly with multiuser setups.

The wife was lying there earlier, she had put some pain relief gel on her foot and a sock as well but didn't want anything on the sofa. Yes, I know it's not an optimal solution.

I'll try to capture a video of the way she unceremoniously, disrespectfully flops into that space and then kicks and twists around to get into that position. So far the "confused my leg for a companion" comment is my favourite.

Thinkpad spontaneously rebooting has some part in the blame here too, no? I mean that’s why this whole fiasco happened..

Dhrystone ,
@Dhrystone@infosec.pub avatar

I recommend putting some time into figuring out why the laptop is spontaneously rebooting. Check the event log as a start. Otherwise this same issue is going to happen with another app and it probably won't have anything to do with whether or not that app autosaves.

This is the reason that all of mine are hardwired (literally) through the roof. Obviously more timeconsuming to do but the signal is way more responsive than wifi (esp. when my wifi bandwidth drops due to giant periodic cloud backups or multi-gigabyte PS5 update file downloads) and I wanted to make sure that all of the video is shunted to cloud and local secure storage in whatever seconds it might take for an attacker to physically disable the camera. Dozen cables down and into my router and switch in the mancave but it is what it is.

Drinking hot drinks, like flavored coffee or hot milk with Milo or ovaltine or Dandy Blend. Morning, afternoon and night. I have to have a hot drink before bed. Have to have a hot coffee when working at the pc in the late morning or afternoon. Only really started maybe a year ago and I’m honestly not sure why.

Not a problem. I only have decaf in the afternoon.

Coincidentally I only just recently finished reading “Dark Matter” by Blake Crouch.

@Dhrystone@infosec.pub avatar

I do, but it’s because my wife works from home and spends three quarters of the day with the chick cave door closed doing teams meetings. Generally my msgs will be “want brunch/coffee/pastries?” etc.

When I make coffee in the morning I put in one packet of pink sweetener, then half sugarfree liquid creamer and half milk then microwave it for 30 seconds to bring it back up to temp. And sometimes a splash of a Torani flavor for absolutely no reason. Could I just use a little more creamer instead of the sweetener? Sure. Could I use even more creamer and NO milk? Sure, I guess. I just enjoy mad scientisting my coffee. Wife just sighs and gets out of my way in the kitchen.

The first one is artificial sweetener in small sachets. Second is liquid that is also a (sugar free) sweetener but has the appearance of milk - many use it instead of milk because it acts as both. The third is a flavoring that is specifically designed for coffees, it’s what you get when you buy an eg white chocolate flavored coffee at a drive thru or Starbucks. They splash some of this flavor in.

I'm really stingy when it comes to subscriptions and honestly paying for anything at all that I don't have to. But the few things that I and the wife are happy to drop a dime on are Prime, Netflix and unlimited cable and cell data. I got the Verizon NF and Starz deal last year, 1 year for both for $74 and I watch NF constantly. Every day. I'd pay $20/month for it easily. Similarly I'm always buying shrapnel on Prime. I know I could live without it but it's essential enough to us to warrant the outlay.
