In-reply-to » Great conversation with @ocdtrekkie tonight. Some things we talked about: * Goryon being taken off the Google Play Store * The woes of uppercase ls and Iowercase Ls * De-Googling Android * The Google Glass and how it forced you into the walled garden * iOS and privacy * Privacy legislation and the extent to which people know about the spying * Creepy Amazon stores * The new issue of Lab6 (https://lab6.com/3)

@retrocrash@twtxt.net We used the meet.mills.io Peer Calls instance, and I didn’t run into any problems. I used Ungoogled Chromium. How was it for you @ocdtrekkie@twtxt.net?

@ocdtrekkie@twtxt.net I usually take notes during the call, but today I just went back and skimmed my messages after you hung up.

In-reply-to » Speaking of which... @mckinley did you ever setup a Salty Addr on your domain yet? 🤔 Can I message you yet? 😅

@prologic@twtxt.net No, I haven’t. mckinley.cc points to a web host that wouldn’t let me host a broker. I’ve got a VPS and some other domains, I just haven’t done it.

I couldn’t figure out the client, anyway. I couldn’t see my messages, and when I run salty-chat read I only got one message at a time. I haven’t touched it in a long time, though, so maybe things improved.

In-reply-to » []() the new EGO electric ride on mower. I’m putting it on my Xmas list. despite the fact it won’t actually fit through our side gate!

@kt84@twtxt.net How long does the battery last? I’m skeptical of electric yard equipment like that. I had to borrow an electric string trimmer a few weeks ago. Piece of garbage! It struggled to cut through anything, and the battery died in less than 20 minutes. I don’t think it was a real inexpensive one, either.

I’ll have my real gas one (that would cut your leg off) running by the time the weeds come back.
