asking for money for our cat 

Our lovely 15 year old cat Baby needs to have a tooth removed, which will be about 500€ on top of the vet bills that already accumulated over the past weeks (they summed up to a good bit more than that).

This is by far not the most urgent fund raiser on here, so if you have to decide who to give money to, don't give it to us. But if you still have a few euros to spare after considering other folks, it would help us handle this more easily.

After a few days (including a break) of struggling, I finally implemented a new savefile-loading-system in my rust learning project, which is way more robust and more flexible than the system before it. I bet there is a better way to parse the savefile, but it is the best way I could come up with.
I am happy with how it turned out.

Instance admin just lost their job, might need help 

Mstdn.social is one of the largest and nicest instances on the Fediverse, run by an enthusiastic admin called @stux

Unfortunately Stux has today found out that they are fired from their day job 😞

However, by happy coincidence, Stux had just set up a hosting company. If you need web hosting, domain names etc please consider using Stuxhost so that Stux can continue working:


So, to learn Rust I set out to build a (idle-)clicker for the terminal. Today I spend like 2 hours writing 3 lines of code... But at the end of the day I had implemented saving and loading a save state. And it feels good

Does anybody have a recommendation for a rss reader, that supports the fever api?
I am currently trying out Miniflux and I do not really like the design on my smartphone. So an app, that works with miniflux is also an option.

"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."

After a longer break I finally wrote another blogpost for
It is about my new dwm config:


My dwm now works. Was quite a hassle to apply the anybar patch and everything related to it, but I am quite happy how it turned out.

On which OS do the people play on?
I am just wondering, because I can imagine a fair share of Linux.

Why does Windows have a braille font. They are already blind and blind people can not feel the font. Or am I missing something

The soundtrack of the game "Bullets per Minute" is amazing. Metal and Hard Rock, just how I like it.

Hey everyone, I got around to post a new blog post:

It is about the state of my current configuration and how I feel about this state.
I appreciate every feedback.

Is there someone here who happens to be knowledge about the swedish law and have maybe 30 minutes to spare for free? I have a couple of hopefully simple questions regarding sub-let.

I usually never ask for this; please boost. It's highly appreciated. Thanks!

I have been writing on a blog post the last few days, but I am not sure if I should release it, because I just do not feel like it is a good one or I do not know if I like it, but at the moment I doubt I could write it better...
Maybe I just will let it sit for a while an review it down the road.
It just sucks a little, because I now have a huge gap in my ^^
