So, I'd like some feedback on this game that I'm making on my free time 🔍

I'm especially interested in feedback from people using a non-latin based keyboard as I don't know how these work. I'm thinking , , , , ? etc. 🌏

Is this game still relevant and accessible to you? ⌨️

Here's a link to a longer description (in English):

and the link to the game itself:

Boosts welcome! 😊

It's been two years now, and I should probably update that...

I still believe in all those things, but now I also believe in Rust 🦀 ! (I like it even better than FP !)

I've since moved to :nixos: and :plasma:, and am not looking back !

Also, I make free little games with the little free time I have, check 'em out !

Native Android apps on Linux.

So I took some time to shape out and write down my thoughts. And now I'd like the opinion of experts on the subject (or anyone with objective criticism).

i always really liked this part of the article recounting rms's experiences with lisp & early emacs development. i feel like the ideas captured here aren't given nearly enough thought & attention as they should in a movement that's supposed to be about empowering computer users.

Relatedly, I've had to run through some hoops to patch the driver on NixOS, not that hard in the end, but will definitely break at the next driver update.

I don't have much of a use-case for it right now, and I don't know how hard it would be to integrate it into nixpkgs (especially since this is a break of the EULA), but if anyone is interested let me know.

Nvidia's middle end graphics cards -- like the GTX 970 I own -- have all the hardware needed for FBC (Frame Buffer Capture, a method for performant screen recording) but it is forbidden by the EULA and simply disabled by their proprietary driver...

The patch to enable it is literally changing a 1 to a 0!

I think this is appropriate:

@be I really would like pre-installations were banned at all. If it would be left for end-point shops to install OS and software needed by user the world could be a better place.
Similar to how in many countries it's illegal for a bank to pack an insurance alongside the account contact.
This could solve "the Apple issue" as well. They would need to adapt and allow at least something else to be able to work on Macs officially. This would make it legal to pre-install a Linux distro in a shop.

Yes, someone did leave the tap open a whole weekend for this to be printed.

This reminds me of some handy advice I found the other day about preparing some copies of identity cards yourself, to avoid identity fraud.

There are some personal ID's to cover (like in Netherlands the Government Service Number, or BSN), and you might even cover your photograph in some cases.

Then when handing over your copy, you add a note describing who its for and a date.

See government advice (in Dutch):

English is the JavaScript of spoken languages.

Just think about it:

- it's extremely wide-spread for historical reasons;

- it is a somewhat random mash-up of at least three other languages;

- as much as all languages have their idiosyncrasies , it tends to have the more confusing ones.


TIL Netflix plants hardware right next to your ISP's physical servers to be effectively 1 hop away from you.

It's clever. I give them that.
