And I've just realised that was not clear I'm looking for and open to suggestions
With kids at home, my old laptop with 4Gb memory and one old Android v7 tablet is not cutting it for school work, and their mum needs a better device too. Tried using the stimulus to get tablets, but usable ones seem to start from 250, and a good one is at least 500.
Thought I'd investigate thin clients - no go.
What's the cheapest way to deck out three kids and a parent with new devices?
Was grumbe-joking to colleagues about helpful troubleshooting emails with tips that can be summed up as "have you tried [doing the thing] correctly?"
Was suitably ashamed when I later discovered that the reason I spent two hours troubleshooting was because I was indeed not [doing the thing] correctly
Is it worth telling the lady that's staying in our guest room that if after telling her "no we will not cut down our heritage protected tree" after my wife told her "no we will not cut down our heritage protected tree", if she then talks to our *children* to strongly suggest we cut it down that it's peeved me right off?

@shlee got any matrix instances running for Aus?
I'm stuck with a chicken/egg problem when trying to install weechat (irc client for linux). It appears to not be in any of my distro's repos, and their website has instructions involving trusting their GPG key. https://weechat.org/download/ - point three after adding their fingerprint is "Check that the fingerprint is correct by asking to a developer on #weechat (chat.freenode.net)."
Well I would, but I need an IRC client for that...
@shlee did the aus.party instance get a database scrub in the last few months? I thought I'd set up credentials there but now I can't log in with a username.
