I told a JavaScript joke to my non-technical friend but they didn't react. I guess they didn't git it. I hope they can learn my point of vue.

Say what you will about RMS (and yes I'm aware of his more sinister sides), when it comes to the part that actually defines Free Software movement, the guy really does practice what he preaches.
He made a principle out of not using anything that runs proprietary software (including the BIOSes and firmwares), and not using anything that could infringe on the privacy. Even if it means inconvenience, he does not give the proprietary a fucking inch.

If we're going to choose another person to be the face of the Free Software movement, it has to be at least someone as principled and stubborn in their stand as RMS is. Does anyone know another person that would agree to live like this?

It's Free Software, goddammit, not Open Source.

Someone has to keep telling the world that.

My tablet just finished building rust in my prefix after 27hours

I'm going with code-server for now, it's not even close to being real time, but it does the job. πŸ˜…

Does anyone know a real time code collaboration platform, similar to Atom's teletype, I could host my self?

Has someone here ever used expo.io?
I know that it is mostly open-source, but I couldn't find the servers source code.

Migrating to was easier than expected, although removing /etc/resolv.conf that early without replacing it resulted in pacman not working offline - luckily I backed up the file before hand, as I had the same issue on my phone.

Just mirgated my installation to wanted to try a different distro, but without the need to re setup everything again, whilst staying with an based one.

Unbelievable! my WiFi was fine right when I start to torrent my ISP just say "Oh! we cant have that can we! (limits my bandwidth)" literally only for 2 sec and I have not torrented for 2 months! just fucking why?! I fucking hate ISP and the bullshit unfair control of the world especially at a time when we depend on them the most! 😠 We need to have a open source ISP where there main motto is to make it as privacy respectful and secure

"Horrifying PDF Experiments"

Spoiler: Breakout implemented in PDF. Yes, the game. Yes, PDF.


Finally fixed my computer, and used the chance to give OpenRC a shot.
Happy to be able to use doom emacs and exwm again.

My wife just told me that our child will find calm/comfort in what music we listen to out loud right now. Looks like I'll be lulling my child to this.

How long does your Linux desktop/laptop computer take to boot into desktop?

‼️NOTE: This is cold boot time, not waking up from hibernation. You may include Windows boot time only if you disabled "fast boot" as it uses hibernation.

- Subtract boot menu cooldown if it was included.
- Do 𝗑𝗒𝗧 answer according to "systemd-analyze".
- Use a chronometer (stopwatch) for true result.
- π—œπ—‘π—–π—Ÿπ—¨π——π—˜ login screen time. I want to know the time it takes to get to your working environment. GUI or not.

Woke up to my computer failing to boot into Arch linux.
Turns out trying to configure a bootloader late in the evening wont result in a working system the next day
