Hello, fediverse. I'm Charles from the USA in the , OR area. I'm excited to be on as I'm hoping it will prove a viable alternative to the "free" social sites.

I make and for a living, and I dabble in for hobbies. Other interests not limited to: , , , , , and .

I need help finding a citrus name for a computer. It happens to be an #Alienware #AlphaConsole. Turning it into a media/gaming 'puter based on #Ubuntu 18.04, UI via #Kodi and #Retroarch.

My XPS13 is named yuzu, and the Precision M3800 is named pomelo. If you compare those machines to those fruit, you may see what I was going for. What should the Alpha Console's name be?

Please #boost! ^_^

Hey #LazyWeb, I'm looking to set up a password manager that our start-up can use in-house. What is a good password manager solution which is easy to install, trusted, and self-hosted? I DO NOT CARE IF IT'S WEB 1.0. I just need something that works and is secure. Could write one myself, I guess, but would prefer to use OTS solutions if one exists. Thanks!!

I am anti-monarchy. I will therefore in the future refrain from describing things as being "royally screwed" and instead saying "screwed using a democratic process following all the best principles of fairness and transparency".

I need a favorite thing on the internet this week for the podcast — anything you all have found delightful lately?

I have https://www.metalevel.at/prolog in one of my tabs. One of these weeks I'm reading it.

Parcelling up orders today has got me thinking about sustainable packaging.

Packaging up a little magnetic mount car antenna:
- the plastic bag it comes in from the supplier
- bubble wrap to protect it (plastic)
- a plastic mailing bag (single use)

Surely there is a better way? Does anyone know of any suppliers of sustainable, recyclable protective packaging?

Looks like there's some work being done to get a new #FPGA series supported by a #FOSS toolchain: Lattice's #ECP5 , which has up to 85k LUTs. Much nicer than the 8k limit in the #ICE40 ! symbiflow.github.io/prjtrellis

I'm going to be really sad in a couple years when Google turns off email.
