After almost two years of #btrfs, today it was the first time that I exceeded myself and broke it! So, I had to rollback the "/" subvolume from a backup. I used send receive, deleted the damaged subvolume and create a new one in place using the backed up snapshop (2 lines in my terminal). Done! System is fully functional again, amazing! I should explore more. FIY, @iah, hope you get along well with btrfs ...
Hi, I'm Mandy. I've been working on an idea I'm developing into a comic named Wander. It follows the story of a tiny magic robot recovering his lost memories and the mystery of his missing friend.
With your support, I can work towards its launch!
I’ve been balancing the creation of Wander with my full-time day job. Money made from my KoFi goes towards two things! First, a Cintiq upgrade, and getting a website for Wander!
break up FB Op-ed by Hughes, NYT
It’s Time to Break Up Facebook
// Maybe this sort of rhetoric is needed to get tougher legislation in the US. GDPR type privacy/data laws. No need to break up FB, but rather we just need to cut their legs out from under them - their secretive extraction of user data which they sell for insane profit.
In case you missed it, you can follow people across the Fediverse even if you're using a different kind of site.
For example, here's a PixelFed account:
...here's a PeerTube account...
...here's a WriteFreely account...
...here's a Plume account...
...here's a Friendica account...
...and you can follow all of them from Mastodon.
Just click on the @ link to see their profile, and then click on Follow.
In Mindustry you launch to an alien location where hostile robots attempt to destroy you and your core. You must defend this core by building walls, turrets, and other such buildings.
The catch is that these things require ammo, or cooling fluid. So you must construct a factory which produces those resources in order to defend your base.

Maybe I just have the wrong definition of accessibility.
To me IRC is far more accessible than any of the proprietary services, because it's an open protocol. It allows me to pick the client that is most accessible _to me_.
And your needs may be different than mine.
Don't want users having to install their own client? Host a matrix/thelounge like service, which gives you the best of both worlds.
You can use your own client or this service then. How does it get any more accessible than that?
Living at the bleeding edge sometimes comes with a cost. I was hoping for a night of #retro #gaming with aoe2 over WireGuard, it was so fun a few weeks ago. But it didn’t work and I don’t know yet who to blame: #Arch, #wine, X or something else. I’m considering saving a #btrfs snapshot of a working state and when I want to play, I mount this snapshot. I bit extreme, but it might work
Even 5 years ago when I first started playing with #FreedomBox, I was amazed by its polish and seamless functionality. By creating a single account on the box, you immediately get access to a personal blog, wiki, chat account, feed reader, VPN, and much more.
It is not perfect I know, but it has a solid offering across a broad range of applications that I haven't seen anywhere else.
If you look for a polished and capable personal home server, I highly recommend FreedomBox.
I wish @freedomboxfndn a lot of luck and success. Keep up the great work, please!
Launch day (one week ahead!), lets spread some love today for
#OpenBSD. I picked OpenBSD about 2 years ago, for a server focusing on
personal tools and experiments, like #gogs and #trac. I choose OpenBSD because of its
reputation of security, good code and documentation. And I also wanted
something different from my usual gnu+linux. I'm glad I did this
choice! The system is simply excellent. I'm learning little by little and I
continue in awe of OpenBSD and the good people behind it. Thanks!
Interesting, 1-year old piece on some challenges in #wayland. Some of the work of @sir is cited, and I had a primer in what challenges he had (and has) to deal with. I became very tempted to try wayland. https://joshondesign.com/2018/03/26/linux_graphics_state maybe is time for #sway
