I got an effective marketing/business tip for you:


When you provide RSS, people can get notified of your latest content, read it, and spread the word about it. Increase your reach == better for your business. 😌

Please provide RSS feeds for your personal blogs ✨


I just want a tablet where I can unlock the bootloader and run Ubuntu Touch on it.

Loading Linux on a desktop isn't so hard, why does it need to be on a tablet?

"Wow, this one has a pen that you can separately buy for way too much!"

"This one has nice colors!"

"Look, you can freaking FOLD this thing!"

"Wow, now I can also pick a red or blue color on the back!"

On the OTHER hand, there's the tablets, smartphones and smartwatches.

They don't care about specs, they advertise with gadgets.

I just wanted a USB stick.

I came home with a cutting-edge device with 256GB 400 MB/s SSD USB 3.1 (WITH backwards-compatibility to 3.0 and 2) that connects to whatever I want. I guess 😬

Mature electronics all care about their functionality and compatibility.

"Oh yeah this will magically work in pmuch every scenario and is compatible with 20 different things!"

"You probably don't know if those things are protocols, ports, OS'es or software, but trust me, this has nice specs and works great everywhere."

I noticed an interesting distinction on how electronic products are advertised.

On the one hand, there's electronic devices that are very mature, like USB docks, PCs and tv screens.

On the other hand, there's smartphones, tablets and smartwatches.

Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.


In one of the more bizarre lobbying moments in , a CTA lobbyist in Washington state said independents shouldn't be trusted because they might install TikTok. Now a CTA member is installing TikTok by default, testing's sanity


I might add an automatic RSS feed soon.

I'm using to edit my website easily, so this might turn into some sort of a blog in the future.

Let me know if someone's up for that.
