Cheap and safe streaming stick?
  • Cheapest would probably be the Raspberry Pi/Orange Pi route.

    I gave up trying to make an HTPC (using Kodi, ChimeraOS, etc). It wasn't worth the hassle and ended up settling for an Apple TV.

  • vpn on nextcloud?
  • Sure, you can use a VPN if you want to spin up the instance and connect to it without having a domain. You can always open the instance of Nextcloud to the internet later, when you buy a domain.

    Get a cheap .XYZ domain if you just want to experiment with spinning up a reverse proxy.

  • Any experience with teaching kids Linux?
  • I have an RX6800XT and I use KoboldCPP to run models I download off of Huggingface.

    I'm not sure how many tokens per second it generates, probably about 10?

    If you want to try it yourself here's a link to the Github page:

  • Any experience with teaching kids Linux?
  • I don't know what your - and your kid's - situation is, but I worry pushing Linux onto someone would be counterproductive to getting them to like it.

    I only use it because I genuinely like and appreciate it. I'd probably start by getting him interested in it. If he likes it enough then he'll try and learn more by himself.

    I recently got an LLM running locally on an AMD GPU. This was only possible on Linux. Depending on your son, something like that could be a cool way to get him interested.

  • What's some really unpopular opinion you have?
  • Yeah. The icing is made with powdered sugar and tomato juice.

    Honestly, it's wild to me that I probably ate something that most people will go their whole lives without knowing it's existence.

  • What's some really unpopular opinion you have?
  • Not yet, although not for lack of curiosity. I was busy at the time and then forgot about this.

    Although, in case you're curious, tomato cake is a thing I've made and it's definitely different. I didn't like it at first but I also ended up eating the whole thing over a couple days.

    Thanks for reminding me of this curiosity though!
