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.
I get to put one of these 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.
@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.
@dahngeek Used it for a while, but have sinced moved to Ungoogled Chromium. A good place for more info:
@nebunez I've been meaning to swap to Linux gaming myself. Heard good things from the community as of late.
Time to learn about coroutines!
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: https://github.com/tiagomartinho/Mast2
@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?
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
