I am looking at buying another SBC for variours projects. One being a Pleroma server another being a Peertube server. I would probably throw a SSD at these things to help save the SD card. But, I'm unsure of the pros and cons of the two popular SBC, Pine64 (Rock64/RockPro64) or the Rapsberry Pi(pi4 2/4GB RAM). Can the Fediverse help me out on this one?

Google Workplace for custom domains ending free edition 

Surprise, surprise... after 16 years of providing free email, drive, etc for custom domains, Google is pulling the plug on the free edition and transitioning everyone over to a paid subscription plan as of July 1, 2022.

I'm guessing there will be a marked increase in self-hosting now, and then again in June.

I'll admit to having abandoned my self-hosted Dovecot and Squirrel mail approach 10 years back. Time to correct that mistake.

Not sure what happened but my pleroma instance just got nuked. Like, I only changed the instance avatar, hit save, and now the server doesn't even have the pleroma bin in the bin dir...wth technology...

Look, I know this stuff is entirely pointless, and chews through CPU cycles for nothing of value other than the fact that it's fun, but I still want it. Part of me wants to go minimal and not have this kind of thing, and the other just thinks this stuff looks so cool.

Open source hardware association or social justice hardware association? I think latter and useless.

I think Iโ€™m going to check out Mint Mobile for my next project. Maybe even swap my current phone to it.

This alarm clock's buzzer broke, so I changed it with a spare speaker I had. But that was too loud, and I had no resistors to use, so I made a DIY one with a cup of water and some salt for tuning.

I've made a new file hosting service called Eggnog.

It's so profitable to sell customer data that Vizio now makes 2x as much from that than selling TVs. Until the govt outlaws this data collection, your only recourse to protect your โจ#privacyโฉ is to buy things from the few companies left that respect it. gizmodo.com/welp-vizio-now-mak

I want a new social media, this one got too many furries and what not. Any suggestions? When does Truth Social come out?

Or can we just bring back MySpace, that was a good one before itโ€™s decline.
