@dsmatthews not arguing that one. As far as I’m concerned turning of a machine like that is also a fairly natural way to go. Just trying to process it all tonight. Definitely sad.
@dsmatthews yeah. He had been home bound with it for about 2 years. Sounds like he just decided he was done today and turned off his machine.
@feld I’m getting to the point where I like the idea of writing physical letters more and more. Ugh too all tech :/
@feld oye. If I change my number again (twice in the last 6 years) my poor parents might lose their minds :/
@thumb you’re the 2nd person to recommend this. I’ve turned it on but I can’t deny this seems like a ridiculous workaround. Ugh.
@thor eh, Linux updates aren’t so much a delay thing for me... at least not like dealing with my wife’s surface pro. I simply run a bash function once a day that keeps the Linux machine up to date.
@thor Ha! Fair. I forget that can be done on Mac as the only Mac I have is my work machine and it’s updated are managed by IT
@kev Nice. I like the concept of the company and hope they figure it out... I look again every few months or so even... Just not workable for me right now. We'll see what happens

@kev Having to download another app because they don't know how to properly handle AppImage (and won't offer any better packaging) is a huge red-flag for me. Once installed it requires me to re-sync literally every time I log in from any device (always says there's a sync problem). Finally, trying to get their file-upload service to work has been a huge fail.
I even prepaid 5yrs of their service about a year ago but I've had so many issues that it just never worked for me.
@kev I've had lots of issues just trying to get it working. This morning was at least my 3rd attempt to want to like it and there were still too many issues. Wound up going with Simplenote for now as it is working well everywhere
