After spending the last month testing out a light mode theme as my daily driver, the results are in.
I made this post and the battery life went from 55% to 50%. So I think it's a combination of *really* good battery life and the metric in Manjaro being in increments of 5%. Good to know!
I don't use my non-work laptop all that regularly, but the Bluetooth trackball I keep connected to it has been listed within Manjaro as being on 55% battery life for nearly two months now. I'm not entirely sure if that metric in my OS is bugged out or if this trackball literally has the most insane battery life.
I know I'm focused on the project that I'm working on based on the fact that I just went for an hour without realizing my music was paused.
In related news, I at least *made* a git repo for the personal project I've been too lazy to start for the past week, so that's at least a little progress. I'm working on putting some skeleton code together now.
The problem isn't the API, but that I want to use it to pull things out of my GitHub account and write them to the web... and anything involving creating web pages makes me lose the will to live.
@consoleaccess FYI its also a pretty robust image processing library with bindings in many scripting languages
I was attempting to find a quick, lightweight way to resize images on my Pinebook Pro so that I could use them in blog posts. I stumbled across Imagemagick. It's a slick little CLI utility that even has HEIF support!
I was dreading the thought of opening GIMP on this laptop, so I'm glad I found something much less... intense.
