Are you FloCed? The has put up a website to check whether you are part of the "original trial" set of users, as calls it. To find out, head over to amifloced.org/

is planning to rebrand the company with a new name next week! I wonder what that would be. Whatever it is, I’m sure it won’t make it more friendly. Mark’s trying to build the “metaverse” apparently, whatever that means.

That moment when your second external hard drive is delivered only to find out that your RPi can’t power more than one at a time 🤦 why does RPi4 limit USB power to 1.2A for all ports combined?
