Today is a frustrating one. With the explosion in working from home, I had a chance to try and sell open source solutions as the answer. I went for discourse, matrix and jitsi. Unfortunately we had such a horrible experience trying to hook them all together with shared authentication that my company has binned the idea off and we're now using MS teams. They'll never consider an open source solution again. One bad experience ruins it forever.

Been setting this RG-350. It's a great little system. Boots straight into emulation station so once I've copied files over should be ready to go!

They turned up after this photo was taken 😀👍

This is a very nice example:

Breaking: @ManfredWeber and the @EPPGroup want the vote on #Article13 and the Copyright Directive moved ahead to next week to pre-empt the #SaveYourInternet/#StopACTA2 protests! We need a public outcry to stop this!
