After nearly a year of using @ArchLabsLinux's (it works so well), I finally got around to making my own. I also found and started using a desktop audio visualiser called . 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 πŸ€”

Someone asked that I make one of my wallpapers with 's logo earlier today so I'm looking around the website and look what I found! They write accompanying songs for each release!

My favourite so far is "Fanza":

Excuse me while I go below my ISP up. I'm hoping the rebuild will fix my perpetual connection issues.

Has anyone compared to in terms of performance, network usage, how easy it is to move from Masto to Pleroma, etc.?

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 with , , 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 got way too many replies to reply to everyone so I'll just say thank you like this and hope you all see it. Thank you! πŸ™‚ It further convinced me that the majority of Linux users use F-Droid and will hopefully convince him of the same!

I'm doing a little poll here to prove a point to a friend.

How many of you current users use ? If you're not on Android any more, did you use F-Droid when you were?

I just found what could be a really cool way to build a website. , by , "is a minimalist web anti-framework built following the and tool philosophy of software design." You can write your entire website using something like , 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! πŸ™‚

I'm making the switch from to 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 , added some reverb, and boosted the bass.

Well my first day in a TTY is difficult. CLI browsers (other than browsh which is unseable without a mouse) really don't cut it. I've found that is the best so far though. I'm writing this toot from :wink:

So the challenge for 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 , elinks/lynx/w3m (not sure which yet), , and all the TTYs to replace workspaces.

I'll try to keep you guys updated on how it goes! Don't expect any screenshots πŸ˜‚

I was having dinner with Dad and he told me about this absolutely amazing new font from that is designed from the ground up to help you remember things. It's called . 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 πŸ˜‰

I know it's weird but I plan to give it a try!

I've added and . Eventually, I'll add little thumbnails by the distro's licensing info and a link to make it a bit smoother to download what you want.

Which one is better?

I'm making wallpapers for as many distros as I can. I'll release them soon πŸ˜‰
