Cake day: June 11th, 2023


  • Thin clients off eBay. I picked up a Dell Wyse with 8gb memory, 4 cores, 16g emmc, and a 256G M.2 SSD for about $40. Includes the case, power supply, power button, etc. Still uses very little power. Install the x86_64 version of dietPi on that and it’s been Rock solid running my docker projects.

    Also picked up and HP T620 with similar specs. Haven’t started using it yet but I expect similar results.

    Much better deal than RPi and for most use cases equal or better able to do the job.

  • Hopefully the algorithm will improve over time - compared to the site which shall not be mentioned, I find that Hot or Active tend to show the same articles for days (despite there being plenty of newer content). Top Day works well the first time I log in for the day, but then that gets stale too. On the front page I feel like I need more like a “Top Hour” option … so I can see what is new without the “drinking from the fire hose” that is “new”.

    These are the early days, Im not unhappy with where we are, I just hope this remains a work in progress and improves.
