Loud crazed noises coming from the deliciously wonderful Mrs. Schlumpf23's laptop. When questioned? I was told: I was trying to feed a radish to an ungrateful parrot. There you go then, parrots are ungrateful bastard. 🐦 😏

Just a little whimsy in these days of pointless division. Remember, no matter what values a politician claims to espouse, once elected, all forgotten and all aboard the money train.

Peeps need to re-watch George Carlin, Bill Hicks & Doug Stanhope.

Wow, during my brief sabbatical from all things geeky (apart from , that love affair will never end 💕 ), I have discovered Matrix chat and AVIF codec.

Avif codec -> jakearchibald.com/2020/avif-ha

Matrix chat --> matrix.org/docs/guides/introdu

Haven't been around here for a while. Playing with different OS's, real world intrusion etc,etc. Anyway, things seemed to have calmed for a while so I'll have some to play with some window managers and some more cool clean geeky fun ; )

What servers are people using to host their Gemini capsules? I've been using Jetforce, but I discovered it's not actually open-source (just source-available), which is unfortunate because it was quite easy to set up and Dockerize. Thoughts?

Holy Shit! Just discovered that Laibach released an album 'Also Sprach Zarathustra' in 2017! I'm listening to it now for the first time and it's so very Laibach (Laibach fans will get what I mean). I read Thus Spake Zarathustra almost 30yrs as I hitch-hiked around the country, smoking weed and looking for answers to so many things. To be honest I think I was too young to truly appreciate Nietzsche's writing at the time. I hope this album will make me take another go.

I've just released v0.2.0 of mastotool, a little command-line helper that lets you search for toots and display statistics about your Mastodon account.

Check it out:

Re my previous toot regarding enabling WebRender in Firefox, please be careful as after a couple of hours I began to encounter numerous random errors throughout my system (Arch, Gnome 3.36.4 Wayland). A hard reboot and turning off gfx.webrender.all fixed everything. Unfortunately I neglected to note any of the errors I received (yes, I'm an idiot). So, while it did initially improve my browsing experience, after a while it just crashed my system so please proceed with caution!

Moin! I'm trying out using Webrender (details here -> wiki.mozilla.org/Platform/GFX/ ) with Firefox 79 and Firefox Nightly 81.0a1 . Simple instructions for activating are provided here (Ubuntu blog but info is relevant for Firefox across all distros, e.g. I'm using Arch and it's still totally relevant).

I just updated Firefox Nightly to 80.0a1 (2020-07-19) (64-bit) and Firefox are implementing HTTPS-Only Mode. I've always used the the extension HTTPS Everywhere, so it should be interesting to see how this works out.

Well fuck me pink and call me rosy!
Google was just slapped with a lawsuit that claims it tracks people on hundreds of thousands of apps even when they opt out


Well, they told me it wasn't possible but it is! After years of searching, I've finally found a decent, intuitive, desktop, ebook reader! Bookwork
--> babluboy.github.io/bookworm/ is really simple, it's really intuitive and highly recommended. Check it out! 👍 😀

Well after all my talk about Window Managers, I've finally taken the leap. This toot is coming from WM. Unfortunately, I don't know any Lua, time to start learning I guess. Anyway, is great, really easy to set up and basic usage is really easy. Really recommend it!

I believe I've discovered ! A Southern U.S. genre with the major proponents being Cavity, who seriously rock! Eyehategod and Crowbar would be lesser examples of the genre. So, any of you fans, you know what to do! : D

Unsane - Sterilise (2017)

Unsane pioneered a more aggressive, less studied version of noise-rock, one that blended the scum/art industrial sturm & drang with a deciededly more hardcore idiom.
In short, they're fucking brilliant.
