Get fedi hired. 

Anyone looking to get into reverse engineering? I have a couple of junior positions open.

/ recommissioning a desktop currently on Ubuntu 18.10. It's a modest AMD machine which I'll use for audio, office, and light dev. Hoping to run swaywm with an existing config and also get up and running quickly. Aside from cleaning off the fans and backing up, do I:

#PatchNotes @PatchNotes

is like #looptober, #noisevember #loopvember but runs through the year. Record, create, post, short-ish recordings, loops, beats, noises, melodies, sounds from your creative process where you work focused on sound/noise/music. Perhaps write a little description of anything that puts it into context (can be anything).

You can also call for #AudioFeedback #SoundCritique #RateMyNoise and add some reuse indication, if desired.

If you like this proposal, plz boost.

as much as I think I really could sell stuff as #cryptoart (and I really need some influx of non libre money now) , I just can't support the idea of all the energy (aka pollution) cost of those transactions made with "proof of work" blockchains ... :

for any transaction, Ethereum is using more than 30KW/h, so the same as I would use to cut ~10-15 1.25x2.5m wood boards with my CNC to make like 30 chairs or 6-8m of wall shelves

that amount of energy consumed _just_ to pay for the artwork is ๐Ÿคฎ

Ach, eigentlich bin ich auch offen gegenรผber einem neuen Job (Vollzeit oder Nebenjob).

Wichtig ist mir nur:

--> Arbeit unter Linux / kein Windows

--> Fokus auf Open Source

--> guter Datenschutz

--> Home Office, wenn Job nicht an meinem Wohnort

btw, I'm available for #musictheory lessons both in English and German on Jitsi, Skype or BigBlueButton (whatever works best for you).

My timezone is UTC +1.

German is my native language, so I'm more comfortable there, but I've been partnered with an American for close to 7 years, so I'm pretty confident in English, too. My existing teaching material is in German, though.

qutebrowser is really good. just need to get my password manager situation in line so I can fully switch. I want to keep using firefox on principle but my laptop's fan has revved up one too many times...

so behind on my FOSS housekeeping. really need to go through and commit all the recent (or not!) changes to my dotfiles so I can get on with my life and do things like switch to bitwarden and finally merge my sway & gnome configs.

y'know, important stuff.

discovered that you can use unmodified keys as shortcuts in normal mode in vim really successfully as long as they don't represent frequent key combos. eg, I have jj set to <esc> which saves me leaving homerow. but now I want to map so many things...

A friend is learning . I looked into it and jive with the premises, but wonder how useful it would actually be. Anyone have any stories or experiences with the language or others who use it?

US Military apparently buying user location data from a company called X-Mode who in turn pay devs to bake their tracking code into their apps (about 400 of them). And yes it looks targeted at minorities in the US. C'mon devs, let's have some integrity, please.

(ironically from birdsite, original article from vice who I also don't trust but the work looks legit: twitter.com/josephfcox/status/)

sometimes your cpu runs kworker/0:2 and sometimes kworker/0:2 runs your cpu

anyone know of a good QuickBooks alternative for building and tracking invoices?
