What is the best type of smart lock?
  • I have a Yale PIN lock that has swappable wireless cards. I use it on a Zigbee network, but that's completely optional. It's fantastic. Even without the wireless, it's great.

    I've had to reprogram it once or twice just due to issues with my smart home stuff, and even the physical interface is nice and easy, assuming you're just entering your PIN or if you have the manual available if you're doing anything more involved.

  • Before your change to Linux
  • I have a very similar story, only I went with Bazzite, and now Aurora.

    I was using 11 and honestly didn't hate it, but I could see the writing on the wall. The Steam Deck showed me what I could do with Linux, do I just did it.

  • 3rd hiker dies in Grand Canyon in last 3 weeks
  • I did the rim to rim hike over 4 days, 3 nights. We hiked in from the North Rim.

    I was not in nearly as good of shape as you were, but in probably the best shape of my life.

    It was an amazing trip, but the hike out was no fucking joke. And you did it in half the time I did. Hard to imagine.

    I distinctly remember seeing runners who would run by with no camping gear, meaning they were presumably doing the entire trail in one day. I don't understand how that's possible.

  • a cool guide to diets
  • But if you eat nothing but Snickers and maintain a calory deficit you're gonna have a bad time.

    But you would lose weight, because of the deficit. It's just that it would be very difficult to maintain that diet for myriad reasons.

  • 'Pray for this burdened man': Republican mocked after telling House he does his own dishes
  • I grew up poor. My chore was dishes, for a family of 5. I was also diagnosed with ADHD but not properly managed. And often I was punished with "wash every dish in the house".

    All that to say I spent a lot of time in the kitchen either hating washing dishes or procrastinating doing the dishes and hating my life because I couldn't go do something else.

    Then in class one day our teacher asked the class what everyone's least favorite chore was, and one girl in the class said she hated unloading the dishwasher. The absolute gall.

  • What's Some Tech That Was Better Than It Is Now?
  • My dad got and refurbished a vintage receiver and was showing it off to me. I asked if he was listening to a CD or a record because I'd never heard clearer audio. Nope, it was an FM station.

    Blew my mind.

  • What's Some Tech That Was Better Than It Is Now?
  • A lot of the modern tech is really good, though.

    Cars are way more reliable than they were. They get way better gas mileage. They have a shitload more power (this is actually a con due to how everyone else drives these days). They're way safer in both accidents and just general driving with traction control and lane departure warnings.

    So it's a real mixed bag. But I'd rather have the cars of today.
