Nastiness Is Not Mandatory

It takes some effort yes, but nice places in today's interwebs exist.

Here's a list of interesting, silly & thought provoking sites:

- (Birdsite links without the Birshite)
- ("Daily curated links that only last 30 days")
- (The granddaddy)
- (The other granddaddy)
- (Nice images, comments(!) & community)
- (Design & more)

It's been about a week that this has been happening with on . I've tried removing all downloaded music and even uninstalling the altogether but nothing worked. Small system updates like 15.0.1 and 15.0.2 didn't fix it either. Anyone else had this?

Woo this article on ! and absolutely, positively slaps:

Its use is mainly headless, running , a couple of notebooks, serving video to and the occasional torrenting. I do RDP to it though, so I'd be nice to have a smoother experience than stock Raspbian.

It looks like Pop!_OS is coming to Pi?

I've been thinking about maybe "upgrading" from to something else. looks very smooth, I wonder if it would be worth the switch?

Also, the new functionality to add images with drag & drop also works with iOS' new between-app drag & drop support!

What was once a simple workflow of getting a book's highlights in a simple text file, now requires using something like I guess.

It's not impossible but it's unnecessarily more cumbersome and potentially much more fragile.

The other option might be to install a different reader on my device, something like . Doable but again, a new source of potential instabilities.

I'm so pissed off right now.

So, the latest firmware update intentionally crippled the hidden "export annotations" feature.

A hidden, disabled by default functionality, that has to be manually enabled by editing a .config file, is now intentionally broken.

Speaking of I'm waiting for their update based on the recently released .

I'm a bit worried that discussions I've seen up to now do not mention an officially sanctioned method to upgrade in-place from to Bullseye.

I'm not very keen in performing a fresh install and re-configuring everything 😕

I absolutely adore Calibre, I think it's a modern miracle of a tool when it comes to ebooks. But the combination of a complex tool with the often black-box implementation of often leads to unforeseen instabilities.

I'll try it with a small subset of books and see how it goes. If nothing breaks, I might introduce my old library archives again.

Decided to give a try on .

I was hesitant because:

A) it's 2 major versions behind the current one, missing a lot of improvements, changes and ereader-specific fixes.

B) I've gotten used to manually prepare and manage and annotations on my reader. Sure, it's more of a hassle to do it by hand but I've been bitten twice by the increased complexity, losing books & annotations.

Still, I've installed it and I'll see how it goes. 🤞 🤞 🤞
