After nearly a year of using @ArchLabsLinux's #polybar (it works so well), I finally got around to making my own. I also found and started using a desktop audio visualiser called #glava. My dotfiles are linked below if you're interested!
There are a lot of screenshots in this toot because I'm not seeing any indication that there are any attached and I kept uploading them. I only realised that they were attached because I posted this a second ago and saw them 🤔
Excuse me while I go below my ISP up. I'm hoping the rebuild will fix my perpetual connection issues.
I'd like to set up my own instance of one and the lack of a 500 char limit, purported speed, versatility with regards to client compatibility, and #federation with #GNUSocial, #Pixelfed, Masto, and others all-in-one is very attractive about Pleroma but Masto supports migration from one instance to another while keeping all your follows and followers (iirc).
I just found what could be a really cool way to build a website. #werc, by #BellLabs, "is a minimalist web anti-framework built following the #Unix and #Plan9 tool philosophy of software design." You can write your entire website using something like #markdown, the core codebase is only 150 lines, there are extensible apps that allow for comments, galleries, etc., you can run different (custom) versions of werc side-by-side, you can write your own apps, and so much more!
I broke down and decided to just use a very simple "portfolio" page instead of coding a website that will let me list everything about everything I've ever done. If you guys wouldn't mind, it would be a great help if you could open it on your phones to check if the media queries are correct with regards to the padding of the header; if it looks abnormally far down the page or if it's cut off. If something is weird, please let me know your viewport size so I can fix it! 🙂

If you're looking for something to make you shoot yourself in the head, use these media queries in your next website for a *fully* mobile-first experience 😀

Apparently, #Mastodon has extensive keyboard shortcuts! In the WebUI of your instance, click here to view them! 🙂
(I love shortcuts so I thought I'd share them for others who hadn't seen the little link down there 😉)
All my instruments Show more
Stuff I play:
Native American drone flute
Stuff I have but haven't had time to learn:
The majority of these instruments, especially the last ones, were gifts from relatives and a few friends; I don't waste money on instruments I'm not going to play nor do I have the money _to_ waste.
I'm making the switch from #Nextcloud to #Seafile and was completely reorganising my filesystem when I found this recording from about a year ago. I really need to sit down and figure out what I played so I can do something cool with it.
The crackle is a side-effect of my crappy laptop mic but I actually think it adds to it. I think I recorded it in #Audacity, added some reverb, and boosted the bass.
So the challenge for #BDLL this week is to either try Fedora 29 or go 100% command line: no GUI. 733t h4xx0r that I am, of course I have to go with the latter. Starting tomorrow, I will boot straight into a TTY. No games, no browser, no GUI file manager, etc. I'll be using #ranger, elinks/lynx/w3m (not sure which yet), #tmux, and all the TTYs to replace #i3 workspaces.
I'll try to keep you guys updated on how it goes! Don't expect any screenshots 😂
I was having dinner with Dad and he told me about this absolutely amazing new font from #RMIT that is designed from the ground up to help you remember things. It's called #SansForgetica. They broke some design principles so it takes more cognitive effort to read the text which helps you retain the information better and longer. They didn't break so many that it's impossible to read, however. It hits that sweet spot 😉
I know it's weird but I plan to give it a try!
