lol I just had to synchronize a timezone for the first time. slowly going down the to-do list, and then i'll make this my daily driver.

Well, it only took another day but I now have a somewhat functional version of Sway running with seatd. The journey is long, and full of IRC – but what lies at the end is worth more than its weight in gold.

I get to put one of these :void: in my username now, right? xD

Holy shit. I've done it. Eight hours, one installation of Pop!_OS on a different machine, and like ten cups of tea later I have an FDE installation of Void Linux. I am root, and I am elated.

Progress update #1: I've learned a fuckton already. Working with Linux is really fun. Maybe accidentally encrypted my UEFI partition, but the computer survived a reboot so I think it's ok? Now moving on to creating my filesystem. EXT4 seems to be the standard, BtrFS seems to be the Wayland to EXT4's X11, and XFS is the author's preference in the Void docs. Open to suggestions.

About to attempt setting up Void Linux with full disk encryption. Wish me luck.

@joeligj12 I've honestly recently reached a point where I'd consider myself proficient at git. It takes some commitment, but I've found is a worthwhile investment. Now looking to the email-based workflow of yore.

Seems like the consensus is to keep your index finger on the J! Thanks for the feedback friends.

Fellow Vimmers: Do you keep your index finger on the J key and shift it over to the H key when necessary, or do you move your whole hand over one and rest your middle finger on the J?

Sites with a top-bar that follow you as you scroll and then don't adjust for it with footnotes amuse me.

@dahngeek Used it for a while, but have sinced moved to Ungoogled Chromium. A good place for more info:

@joeligj12 On macOS, ImageOptim is the standard. Not sure about Linux or Windows though.

Most of the time I'm happy with how my site looks, but then every once in a while I stumble on a light-mode, serif-typeface page with huge text and lots of whitespace (see: texify for Hugo) and want to change everything.

@nebunez I've been meaning to swap to Linux gaming myself. Heard good things from the community as of late.

I use Mast, created by @JPEG, to browse the Fediverse on iOS. It's a pretty great client, and open-source. However, it was somewhat recently sold, and I couldn't find the code – that is, until today. Check it out: github.com/tiagomartinho/Mast2

P.S.
@JPEG is now working on a Twitter client, Aviary. I've downloaded it, and so far it's pretty great. Nice job.

Bought an Android phone for development (Pixel 4a). Definitely worth a blog post - such an interesting ecosystem for a new initiate.

Currently running the default Android installed on the device, and looking for advice on how to stay secure while still being able to develop for the whole ecosystem. I'd love to run GrapheneOS, but I think it will break compatability with the average Android device. Thoughts?
