When I encounter the phrase “side hustle” in an article or podcast, I immediately close the browser/delete the podcast, never to return. Across this line, you do not.

PSA for those about to undertake outdoor cooking activities today: BBQ is a noun, not a verb, and it means "meat that has been slow cooked with lots of smoke". What you are likely about to do (cooking food on a grill) is called "grilling" or "cooking out". #TexasForever

Now that #GoT is over, I have made a complete list of all the current shows that HBO has for me: 1. Chernobyl
There are still a few Mac mini's left (those not marked as Sold). I'll be announcing the URL tomorrow on @b2wshow so if you're interested, now's the time. danbenjamin.com/forsale/

I’m still searching for a small #linux notebook. Any recommendations? So far, suggestions have been “Get a $2k laptop from Dell/HP”, “just get a Chromebook”, and “just use Windows Subsystem for Linux” however I think y’all can do better.
.. yet BSD is what provided the foundation for Apple's move to Intel and macOS, and really iOS and tvOS. Are more people are using BSD than Linux ... without realizing it?
I started using Linux w/Slackware in '93 while deploying FreeBSD servers for my hosting company the same year. Linux felt like shaky beta software while FreeBSD was stable, reliable, solid. Now, everything is linux and I never hear about *BSD.
A paltry task for a being such as myself. twitter.com/hotdogsladies/…
