Why does Gmail need to have such bad support for raw text?

It bothers me that i can use `>` quotes and have those be well supported in Google Groups, but not on their webmail?

Silly silly google. Why you do this.

I wouldn't be surprised if I end up with a sub tree in ~/.local/bin/ with a bunch of quick'n'dirty scripts like this for different web pages.

On the other hand, the only sites I actually view regularly (other than duckduckgo and code docs, which I generally do in w3m) are Messenger (from facebook), and Fosstodon...

I kept trying to launch "fosstodon" instead of "firefox" via dmenu.

So I wrote `~/.local/bin/fosstodon`...


#! /bin/bash

firefox -new-tab

Welp. Its happening. I've finally caved and decided to install Dwarf Fortress on my rig.

Having some troubles getting LNP to work on ubuntu, but I'm sure I'll get it figured out eventually...

Hiked an hour into the woods with a 9 inch netbook (Acer ZG5), a novation circuit, audio interface, and headphones.

Gave myself an hour and a half (battery life of the ZG5) to write and record a song.

Damn that was fun. Hiking/music video hopefully sometime next week.

I have some things is like to do with a little web toy that requires some amount of dynamic interaction with the elements on the page.

Is there any competent alternative to Javascript that isnt as...evil?

I know of brython, which is an attempt to bring Python to client side, but forcing the user to cache (most) of the python stdlib seems counter productive...

Gah. I don't want to make a full fork of a software for a single feature, but the maintainer is literally making the argument that any file naming convention outside of English isn't valid.

Just because your a native English speaker, does not mean that everyone wants to utilize English naming conventions or even speaks it anyways...

Bothers me so much. Especially when the change that fixed this is 2 lines long and a single call to os.environb and a list merge... Why exclude when its 2 lines?

Surprisingly, I might also be able to manage DJing off the ZG5 when i come back, as Mixxx seems to run wonderfully from my basic test.

Now i just need some additional pocket synths and a few extra batteries and ill be set for a full day of recording live on location.

Me and the fiance are going to their 'family cabin' next week, and i cant be without some music making capabilities.

I got my Acer Aspire One ZG5 up and running as record/synth box, as well as a full dev environment provided a client desperately needs something.

Ive got everything i need to record and edit my tracks, as well as some extra synth power as well. I can manage about an hour and a half of recording completely off battery power.

I feel proud.

I just had a realization.

I in no way miss windows, and haven't thought about switching back to it for weeks...

Thanks i3 for giving me a wonderful in between of TUI's only and a full blown desktop manager.

Congrats! Wow, when did Fosstodon pass 10,000 members?!? Actually, when did it pass 9,000?

I missed the opportunity to link this. 😢

If your using pip to manage your install, you can grab my patched version directly with:

pip install -e git://

If anyone out there is using viewer, I just pushed a patch to my instance that allows extending the readme file names that can be discovered by the software.

If thats something you want, grab it here:

Huh. I learnt a new thing about installs today.

Didnt know i could specify a specific commit or branch to clone from with @ in the url.

Seems like something i shouldve known...
