Current decade-old Synology DS411j NAS is barely usable due to limited hardware specs (128 MB RAM) & updates that keep it in swap.
Considering what to do. I'd like something low-power (electricity-wise) and FOSS preferable.
It's just for me, so simple & fast *enough* are OK.
I'm even tinkering with my Pi 4 home server to see if I can just add a multi-disk enclosure for RAID.
I had a dream that I was typing on an old Model-M keyboard. And then, also, in the dream, I tried out a keyboard with lighter, more sensitive keyswitches.
My main keyboard, a Moonlander (ergo, split, columnar, mechanical keyboard with an open source programmable firmware) has hostswap switches (Cherry Browns).
Is my subconsious telling me to buy replacement switches?
Further evidence that I'm weird, I guess.
At least it wasn't another school-related nightmare again.
Huh, I haven't upgraded my Raspberry Pi running Pi-Hole DNS blocking in a while...

The ray of hope at the end of this week is that I believe the free and #OpenSource software movements are more unified than ever before that intolerance, abuse, and disrepect from our leaders will no longer be allowed. That's a great thing and a good first step toward visions like #DigitalAutonomy. https://techautonomy.org/
This sounds like a perfectly normal Gremlins sequel. 🤪

So far I've largely successfully ignored the whole #NFT thing, though I agree that the ecological impact of many NFT approaches should of course _not_ be ignored.
What strikes me is how uncomfortable, culturally, we still are with abundance and the end of ownership. The idea of a society where humans can live dignified lives while building upon cultural works without constraints has a much harder time gaining ... currency. Capitalism overshadows our thinking and dominates our discourse.
