Also, I feel like I need to post an updated

It used to be entirely based on linux and open source, but I couldn't get JACK to play nice with my audio interface (24bit DAC over firewire?). Now, I've conceded that my OS and audio stack need to be MacOS/CoreAudio so certain gear plays nice.

Ce la ve, amirite? The only closed source software I use on it is the finder window, disk utility, and terminal emulator.

Its taken 10 years of hoarding, trading, and sale hunting...

Did you ever see an ad for fediverse? Small Internet? GNU + Linux? I sure didn't, instead I saw the existing userbase of these things talking about how good these things are and said "hey, I want to try that!".

Me and the partner also went but and packed up some board games. So hype to play Exploding Kittens with friends once I can have friends over again

For a while there I had to stop using my surface, mostly due to a cracked screen and a conflict in software compatibility.

Recently got my screen fixed and picked up a new stylus. I've got too say, l forgot how much I love the device's form factor.

Still such a cool experience being able to hand write on a computer. Still gotta hand it too Microsoft. Their chicken scratch translator always impresses me!

I think I found the perfect way to relax for the night.

Cant get much better than Airplane! and some snacks on the couch with the fiancé

I’m told that many Germans are stockpiling cheese and sausages in anticipation of a COVID lockdown — planning, in other words, for a Wurst-Käse scenario

I've looked into many competitors, but no system seems to fit my needs!

- sr.ht seems to monolithic for a single user, although it ticks all of my boxes

- gitea/gogs seem more geared to medium size organizations, and don't seem to have good integration with mailing lists.

- github/gitlab are off the table (due to self-hosting requirements).

Really, klaus/gitolite does me well. However, klaus doesn't have a tag viewer/allow for tags as releases. Its becoming a bit of a breaking point.

Hey! I need a software recommendation!

I'm looking for a simple git service that is self-hostable and appropriate for single users.

Currently, I'm using Klaus (github.com/jonashaag/klaus) in combination with Gitolite, but its proving to be a bit lacking in features.

Must have features:
- self-hostable
- tight email integration (i.e sourcehut)
- single user appropriate
- tags as releases
- automatic readme/documentation rendering.

Have you ever wanted to have a key binding for sending a tweet in i3 or with dmenu?

Wait no more! Have an open source repository I just put up! Super simple, creates a dmenu instance that asks for tweet content, and then posts it!

Setup-script is i3 aware and should automatically handle things.

Whats your favourite desktop app for mastodon that works with Mac OS?

Looking for something open source thats a little better than the default web experience...

10 points to anyone who can guess the inspiration for that logo...

After several months of using and other various stripped down window managers, I accidentally boot into today.

Y'know... Sometimes a start menu and system tray is nice...

Definitely don't miss the grid/column workflow of i3wm tho.
