Just read the term โ€œHealth Care Consumersโ€ and now I need a shower. America sure is one fucked up little puppy.

Here's my new portable computer. The case was finally printed successfully so I was able to make sure all the electronics actually fit. The cables need a lot of wrangling so I might look for some shorter ones. The list of components is on my blog:

This was a fun custom deck to make. I'm happy to have a sturdy little computer with a mechanical keyboard that I can take with me.

I've been watching kids TV for the last hour and they're not even here.

I forgot more things:

- Messaging (Signal, Threema, Keybase, Wire)
- Git (Gitlab, Keybase)

We use Rocketchat and Discourse at Elephant Branded.

I run Solus on an X220 and don't hit any issues on a day to day basis.

It's easier now than its ever been to move away from data leaches like Google, Facebook, Microsoft.

Mostly for tech people though. Still not for the everyone.

Oh, and @Tutanota@mastodon.social for email. Which is great and getting better all the time. I don't fancy self hosting email. Bit of a minefield.

Although there are drawbacks to snaps. Whenever I create a new doc with Nextcloud/Collabora it's in German, and with a snap there doesn't seem to be a way to change this ๐Ÿ˜

Slowly moving from big tech is going well. So far I've got:

- this
- RSS reader (Miniflux)
- file storage (Nextcloud)
- Docs (Collabora Code)
- IRC (The Lounge)
- Photo backup (Nextcloud)
- Notes (Joplin - synced with nextcloud)
- Read it later (Wallabag)

All either docker images or snaps using lets encrypt. It's so much easier than it used to be!

Need a decent self hosted photo sharing app now.

I'm definitely sticking with this instance now. Definitely. Maybe.
