I logged out of birdsite on my laptop and removed it from my phone's launcher. So tired of the constant drama, the talking past each other, the abuse...

Who decided to call it Amazon Web Services and not Prime Computer?

Moved my Calibre library to my Syncthing install & installed the Calibre content server on top. Now, the Moon+ app on my e-reader & phone can talk to my library directly and I can ditch OneDrive as well as Dropbox.

Holy 💩❗The Mega65 team booted up a custom build of GEOS on their pre-production hardware RUNNING AT 40MHZ AND 800x600 NATIVE RESOLUTION 😲
