I would live to come see you two sometime! I rarely make it to Seattle (I'm a Spokanite) but I occasionally make it out for a concert or something. I enjoy my Monero node/mining, and am looking forward to my 2.0 setup I'm planning right now. currently I run it on my main rig, so anytime I want to use it I have to turn off the mining. However 2.0 will be a dedicated node rig, that I'll always have running, with mining also set up on that. I love randomly checking on it throughout the day :)

After yesterday's Rogers outage here in Canada, very happy to be a self-hoster watching stuff on jellyfin from my LAN and to not rely on debit for my banking. That a single ISP could take down the debit network really reminded me of your show and your discussions about centralised banking.
