I like buying physical CDs because they're exactly like buying the digital album but with a backup copy

Damn. New Childish Gambino giving me chills.

Also, shout out to United Airlines for helping me empathize better with sardines. I now understand their plight.

forteller - This sounds like Aaron Swartz all over again :(

About 80% of these bands are on my regular playlist. Expecting an amazing show!

It's funny how I associate messenger apps with people. Certain apps I use to talk to exactly one person.

New blog post!

Trying to get back into blogging. Doing some series on blog.iamthefij.com around my experience leaving Google and Self Hosting my own services. I’m also sharing configs and publishing new Open Source tools.

Hoping to increase my peer pressure to write more!

From the Ghost 2.0 release notes: "Google AMP is now optional rather than always-on." Yaaas!

I want to post audio toots/tweets of random thoughts

One last Docker issue to work through... Could be a bug outside of my config though. For some reason --net=host doesn't work. Containers not only can't access my network, but they can't access the internet either. Unfortunately, its a required flag for UPnP to work and Homebridge (bridges Home Assistant to HomeKit) depends on that.

Spent a good part of yesterday on the patio fixing up the configs for my home server. It's all still running smoothly today! Success!

And a counter point to my last post from a friend of mine. We, consumers, need some protection.

While there's merit to the argument that our current Net Neutrality rules are a blunt instrument, they're the best we have today. We need your voice as we continue the fight for net neutrality - reddit.com/r/blog/comments/6mt

My feeble attempt at blogging. I really think it would be cool to keep up with this, but I'll take it a post at a time.

@chosafine @ocdtrekkie just listening to Pentagonal. Jake, you're wrong about password managers. 🙂 The likelihood that someone can crack my password safe (I'm using a selfhosted KeePass safe now) is just as small as someone breaking into your safe. Actually, smaller. If someone really wants in your safe or your house, they can do it. I could email you my password safe and you won't crack it until you buy a quantum computer. 😉 *can of worms opened*
