Pro-tip: hibernate your laptop by default (replace sleep action):

Edit or create /etc/systemd/sleep.conf with the follwing:

[Sleep]
AllowSuspend=yes
# Hibernate instead of sleep
SuspendState=disk
AllowHibernation=yes

Playing No Man's Sky.
On Linux...
Pretty darned addictive, I've sunk a fair few hours in already.

Please stop writing whole-arse apps in JS or Python (or any interpreted language).

Respect your users resources - you'll gain greater reach by being able to run on lower spec machines also.

I remember why I don't use Mastodon as much now. The interface is fucking shit.

@MatejLach @rune
Windows PCs have proprietary app stores (Microsoft's, Steam, etc.) They have ugly hardware locks to eliminate your freedom for surveillance and freedom to tinker (UEFI, IME). The frog is already being boiled, it's only a matter of time now.

People buying Windows machines to install Linux on them are a big part of the problem. Support open hardware, or in 10 years from now everything will be locked down.

Really digging my new casual look. A nice blazer really does wonders.

I forced writeup.ai to recreate the GPL3 from a single sentence and autocompleting clauses until it produced a line ending in a period

LENS 0.4.0 has been released! 0.4 includes a lot of code cleanup, reorganization, refactoring, and so forth, in large part thanks to @SenojEkul. It should also be more portable to architectures other than x86_64 (including ARM, PowerPC, MIPS, and SPARC64), though it hasn't been tested or built anywhere else. Finally, it adds "object flows," and enough tools to use them for IPC. I expect to start doing interesting stuff in 0.5.
