Unpopular opinion: Remote Desktop on Windows 10 is really good.

It comes with the exact same CPU and GPU as their desktops. It has 16GB of RAM, a 2TB SSD and a 13” screen. It has Thunderbolt. It has an official keyboard + touchpad case.

I could’ve been doing some serious work on that beast if it would just let me access its UNIXy internals and install some software.

Parsing emails is insane. Yet another corner of the internet where I'm shocked it works at all.

Is anyone using Firecracker VM on a personal server to host things like mastodon or other web things?

I've officially migrated to a satellite setup for MPD and the lack of lag compared to using an httpd stream is really nice. It's also nice not having to have anything running in the foreground to listen to music. I'm cheating a bit and using autofs to mount my smb share for my music_directory but oh well, it works.

Any mpd users out there want to share their setups? I'm migrating from using the http stream output to the "satellite" method and I'm curious what other setups folks are using.

We *really* need to establish signing commits with a verified key as common practice in software development.

For some critical projects it should probably even be a strict requirement for collaboration 🤔

(for some it already is, but it's still the exception, not the rule)
