After a couple of years using Arch-based distros I installed elementary OS again. Can’t believe how much it’s improved since I last used Freya.

On this day 45 years ago this was released. #NowPlaying: What in the World by David Bowie.

Does it actually work for you? I was able to set it up and send a couple of toots but then it just stopped working. Sending webmentions to brid.gy/publish/mastodon and syndicating to an actual Mastodon account seems to work.

People agree that after many years of irrelevancy Rock is kind of having a revival. Most bands leading it are prominently using non-guitar strings, which is the formula coined by Lou Reed and John Cale. Eno was right, Rock will perpetually owe to The Velvet Underground & Nico.

I had not thought about it. I’m giving Trilium a few weeks to see if it sticks, but your suggestion is definitely worth trying. Thank you.

I like that Obsidian Sync enables E2E encryption, but $10 a month for that feature is out of my budget. I didn’t know you could actually self-host it? How are you planning to do that?

I’m trying out Trilium Notes for the last few days and gotta say it’s the closest thing to Notion I’ve seen, but it’s also Free software, which is amazing. The learning curve is somewhat off-putting and that keeps it from being a real and exciting alternative, but if I manage to get used I’ll probably stay.

Bridgy Fed wasn’t the solution for me, trying to set up its regular webmention endpoint has not been easy with Mastodon. Looking for solutions…

Testing Bridgy Fed by following myself at @kandr3s@mastodon.social

Finally installed Huginn, still trying to figure things out, but I guess this is goodbye to IFTTT.

Pitchfork put out their Top Albums of the year….

Pitchfork put out their Top Albums of the year. My first reaction was “I wonder how many of these artists paid to be on the list.” But anyways this year’s best Rock record in my opinion is Black Country, New Roads’ For the First Time. For some reason not on Pitchfork’s list.

There’s another Pitchfork list with best albums of the year. And that one includes the 3 Rock albums featured on Tinta en las Cintas this year.
