I quite like it but as others have pointed out - it’s just too complex.

I have been wondering if we’re going to see some high inflation. The target rate of inflation (2%) is barely kept up with in the UK. Since 2008 we’ve seen awfully low interest rates. We’re all complaining of high property prices, perhaps this is where everything else rises and property prices will remain stagnant or lower than inflation and everything else “catches up” to property values?

Usually wages rise during inflation but I think we all know that the majority will come away with the least benefits.

Completely agree. There is no proof at all that Telegram is secure. It’s also a closed platform. Currently it makes no money. But very soon I’m sure it will start serving Ads or premium features - all that server power and bandwidth isn’t free.

I quite hope not. Although I lean left and socio-liberal I come to social platforms such as Lemmy to take a break from the usual politics.

I would be interested to find out why

My first job I just turned up at the store and asked for one. My first professional job, I had 2 interviews after uploading my details to a job site and a recruiter reached out to me.

Eventually - you’ll do enough interviews that it won’t bother you anymore

The kit has the case and the fan, you may need these as they’re quite essential. Make sure any power supply you plan to use is plenty enough to run it too. Your SD cards you have lying around may be slow and hold back performance. Tldr: If it’s your first pi, I would recommend the kit.

You’re quite right! Apologies

I really enjoy Matrix at the moment. It’s got quite a large community and there’s a channel for everything.

I don’t really think distro choice matters so much these days. If you’re looking to try something a little more bleeding edge - you could try something like Manjaro, this has a rolling release pattern so you won’t be in the same situation again. I think this comes in lighterweight flavour like Lubuntu. I’ve heard great things about Pop_OS, I would give that a good look too.

That’s fair.

I almost had to recreate one myself because of my work requiring some dev work for them. I’m pleased to see there’s something I could use in the future to forward them on.

Takes me back to the Spectrum days! Copying cassettes using my parents twin deck separates system with the volume dial down to 0.

Why are you looking you change distro?

I use Ubuntu. Previously I used Debian. Edit: Most downvoted. Why? Let’s get some discussion going :)

I have an old FM radio I got off of eBay, a Hacker RP72. It’s just nice to have on as background noise and the sound quality is excellent. I can put it on and just get on with something other than sitting at my desk which was unbearable before.

I like the idea of self hosting email - it just seems to be a total pain however. I’ve done it a few times but the process is so fragmented and I just don’t have the time to dedicate to maintaining it.

I deleted my Facebook account last year. I made a post saying “We don’t talk to each other here anyway. Email me or call me if you want to get in touch.” I just kept trying flooded with distant relatives with unsavoury political views.

It’s become significantly harder in the UK as of late. Buses no longer take cash, and a lot of businesses since the COVID-19 pandemic have stopped taking cash (Quickest example I can think of is Shake Shack).

I was pretty shocked at this. They seemed to be the most privacy focused (And the most expensive).
