I'm thinking of having a centralized small PC at home. Kinda like a server, for downloading stuff, connected to bluetooth speakers and tv. The idea is to have access from local network, any ideas of where to start ? :ms_laptop: :ms_speaker:

one commonality I hear in story after story of people switching to alternative social media (the whole spectrum: tildes, Gemini, indieweb, fedi, etc.) is the shock and ensuing relief at the absence of the eyeball hose. you get used to engagement/interaction counts being in the single digits, and it's kind of freeing

blind person looking for a keypad :boost_ok: :at_me: 

My national org for the Blind has been out of Orbit braille gear for a while and they don't seem to be restocking anytime soon, and the site doesn't seem to ship outside of the US at the moment.

I am looking for either:

- An USian willing to send a package to Spain so I can buy the actual Orbit 20 braille typing keyboard.

- Advice on bluetooth keypads and programming them for braille on Android and Windows.

- Someone who builds keyboards who could make a small wireless keypad for braille and navigation (6 to 16 keys)

I live in Spain, in case you need to account for shipping and such.

Hibiscus tea is my favourite cold drink in the summer, I could drink pitchers it, I probably would if I didn't care about it burning through my teeth enamel.

Wondering if I can get recent changes in OpenLibrary in something other than JSON: openlibrary.org/dev/docs/api/r

Pretty odd that there's an RSS feed at aldaily.com/feed/ - but I get a sort of rate limiting error when I try to get to it ... maybe they've not noticed?

apart from raspberry pis are there any home server hardware I should consider ?
