This Too Shall Pass

The Category5 Community Coffee Break is more than 64 episodes in since the pandemic hit, and it's a great place to come together with other community members and hang out, sharing about the tech (and other things) that occupy your time. Robbie also takes a crack at replacing the decrepit cooling system in his Lenovo ThinkPad, but finds the headers have changed and he'll need to pick it up another week... once he's unpacked his soldering tools. Bekah's here with the week's news, and Robert's filling us in on the state of the cryptocurrency market.

Solbu is super eager to tell us about his new Turtle Beach Stealth 600 headset, and they're really great! Somehow, we get talking about sandwiches, and Ken Jennings (of Jeopardy fame) knows exactly what we're talking about. Peter needs to stay off high towers, and we're thankful he survived what sounds like a very bad accident. bp9 chose Xubuntu for his Pinebook Pro, and Python 2.7 is dead, but app developers don't want to admit it--and it's causing problems. bp9 is working on converting his software management to git. Doug welcomed his third granddaughter into the world this week, and got himself a new Roku too! And finally: Naked didgeridoo crazies; what are they, and why are Australians on about it at 2am? Joining Robbie Ferguson this week are Solbu, bp9, Doug Townsend and Peter Lewis.
