Oh, just in case, I'm not saying, that MeLE produces the best and the cheapest mini fanless box available on Ali or elsewhere - it's just an example, that there are different variants (and sales) 😊
I run Pihole on a Pi. I was planning to host a wiki and a few other things too but. as usual, I haven't got time to do it yet.
There is one area where some may get caught out with a Pi. It lacks hardware encryption acceleration. It's amazing what it can do for the size and power, but for some encryption heavy tasks that lack of hardware acceleration may be a problem.
Also, if you want to boot off a USB connected drive on a Pi model 4, you do need to make sure the adapters chipset will work. Not all of them are the same under the hood. There are threads about it on the official Raspberry Pi forum.
Does anybody have any experience with audio/video editing keyboards? They are quite expensive, but in the light of the coming taxation changes, I would better but them now, than later. Random examples:

They look very interesting and even useful, but I'm on Linux, so not sure if they are compatible with soft like Kdenlive, GIMP, Audacity, etc.
Only one month left, so I'm continuing to buy everything I postponed. Just bought a bunch of AWG24 Cat8 cables - call me crazy, but I'm preparing for 10Gb and I aeady see errors on Cat5e interfaces.

Speaking of 10Gb - ordered this card: CF-P100 V1/V2 10GB High Speed PCI-E Network Card AQC107 chipset for the QNAP NAS.

For even more crazy guys: AMPCOM AWG22 Cat8 cable.

Ordered! In China only 7 keyboards left (EN layout) and 3 (EN + RU). Can be ordered from Spain (7 left) and US (10 left).
Added kbd and mouse wrist support to the order: https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/_Ae8mVP - I wonder if they help, never had any before.

This is quite a quest. I'm in conversations with multiple vendors and sellers. Usually, they provide a Windows driver and a config program. You can configure the keyboard under Windows and then move it to Linux. Some programs are in Chinese only, but live Google translation with a smartphone can solve even this problem.

Some keyboards can be reconfigured using QMK - https://qmk.fm/

I'm currently looking at Delux T11 Designer Keyboard - my favourite so far. It's got a multifinctional wheel and an English config program. I wonder what the manufacturer says about showing the current wheel function under Linux (there will be a pop-up under Windows).

Just arrived (7 days!) - these guys are thick!

Nail polish color almost match cable color 😜

This cable is HUGE and beautiful, and the quality is fantastic!
