As a KDE-Plasma Arch Linux user that personally prefers building up from almost nothing to a well configured environment, I gotta say Elementary is pretty darn good.

I'm migrating my (80+ yr old) dad's machines away from Arch as it gets too much for him to administer these days

I thought either elementary or Lite Linux would be good match and elementary is.

I was plesently surprised

Imo Elementary > Budgie for certain

The Mandela effect? Thoughts

May be worth a lundukefiles special


My teenage son over the past few years has wanted fewer and fewer hugs from his mom and me, at first I put this down to him becoming all grown up... but what if it means I should migrate him from Arch Linux to FreeBSD

This week I have been looking forward to exploring sdf.org on my day off and set? up a gopherspace for myself, now my day off is here and I find myself struggling for motivation.

Anyone know of any cool active sdf.org, sdfeu.org or gopher content I can browse to remotivate myself ?


In a recent 'boring' vid you asked when was the lat time you used gopher://

let me answer you 😀

today was actually the first time I had used a gopherclient (cgo), but now I am seriously considering setting up my own gopherspace now - perhaps mirror my excuse for a blog - all because of you!


Lookin' good Arch Linux!

Interesting link that has an updated List Of CPUs Affected By Meltdown + Spectre

Lists include Intel, AMD, ARM, Apple and also lists some devices too


May be with a mention in your tech news show @BryanLunduke

all new content at


thanks to @hund who I think first mentioned github/Jekyll to me.

I am still thinking of trying out NeoCities too

Ok it finally appears to work

I have exported my existing wordpress content to my new Jekyll blog on github pages



let me know if I messed it up anywhere

still looking at options for my blog/webpages

I am considering using Wordgrinder to write entries then export to HTML and then copying to NeoCities

Thanks to @ChrisWere for the initial heads up about NeoCities

The other option is to use Wordginder export to Markdown and use Jekyll with GitHub Pages

Trying to figure out the pros and cons of each

Is your Kernel vulnerable ?

grep . /sys/devices/system/cpu/vulnerabilities/*

If you get an error , update your Kernel and try again

Currently mitigating Meltdown and v2 spectre, no mitigation in place for v1
