Linux Mint on an old Surface Go is an excellent experience. Should've ripped Win10 off ages ago. l.curry.com/fsw

“Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.”

Who is hosting nextcloud for you? Are you hosting it yourself?

First thing I'd do is to look for the nextcloud logs on the server. Check if there are any error messages in the logs and if I don't understand them, put them in a web search to see if others had the same issues (and solved them).

Also do a web search for any errors you see on your iPhone when trying to connect.

Also see if you can upgrade your version of nextcloud to a newer version.


Also, get a window seat if you can. It's cool to look at the landscapes below and the sky and clouds can be really pretty.


Get noise-cancelling headphones if you can. You might get stuck near a crying baby, and airplanes are noisy (like white noise) in general.

I think you make good points and I also noticed the framing you mention.

Based on his surname, I guess he's Jewish and therefore might have sympathy with the idea of Israel as a Jewish state.

If this is true (I don't know, speculating here), then I think he actually made an effort to write with sympathy and compassion about the plight of the Palestinians he profiled.

All-in-all, I thought it was a good piece.

A while back a rewatched "Silence of the lambs" (awesome movie) and afterwards stumbled upon the song that plays while the psycho is cross-dressing (can you imagine that movie being made today?).

It's actually a great song. An obscure one hit wonder with a melancholic 80s sound.

No I don't, but for some reason I ended up subscribed to their newsletter, and I thought what they're doing is interesting.

I really like the idea of DAOs where mutually distrustful strangers can still collaborate online to provide and consume hosting, storage or other services.

AFAIK they're not a DAO, but it's a step in that direction.


There are already blockchain projects that do this.

For example:
