Streaming a file using VLC on the AppleTV from a Samba shared from the Raspberry Pi crashes the RPi. Installed PlexMedia - hoping that this will be better than VLC and won’t crash the RPi.

SO nice to see @leo posting more often. Hoping to see the other hosts of TWiT, MBW, SN and STT here on the fediverse.

.@Signalapp is still down. Where’s my fax machine? Will the fax-modem work when connected to my iMac using a serial port to USB Type A to USB Type C adapter combo?

Called nearest Ace Hardware looking for CR1632 and was told they don’t carry it. Called nearest Toyota, was quoted PhP515 (USD10++) for one. Tsk tsk. It was PHP320 (USD 6.70) for 5 at Lazada.
