I wanted to do PeerTube, but I can't resources-wise at the moment. But a single-user Mastodon instance is something I could certainly swing.

I used to have a very lukewarm opinion of Mastodon/fediverse stuff in general, but I've decided that it is, in fact, not just Obtuse Twitter™ after all and is something else/better entirely.

I may look into making a single-user fediverse instance for myself in the near future. I've been lurking around here more recently, and I've followed a lot more people. I thought about doing this in the past, maybe I should go ahead with it...

"The Gentoo Distribution Kernel project is excited to announce that our new Linux Kernel packages are ready for a wide audience! The project aims to create a better Linux Kernel maintenance experience by providing ebuilds that can be used to configure, compile, and install a kernel entirely through the package manager as well as prebuilt binary kernels."

I just released part 1 of my video tutorial series on the init system from :gentoo: . This video covers the basics of finding info about daemons, and starting/stopping them. Check it out:

If you use eix, you must run the command eix-update each time portage syncs to remote repositories (for instance, when you run emerge --sync) in order to have an updated cache to search. In this video, I show you how to use :gentoo: 's postsync hook functionality to easily automate this process:

Gentoo's emerge command has the built in --search option for searching for packages, but a greatly superior tool exists in the portage ecosystem: eix. Check out this video to learn how to use eix, the faster, better-formatted package search utility for portage:

My newest video is on the topic of upgrading the kernel in , which is not a straightforward process if you are a first-timer. Check it out!

Keywords, in , are used by portage to determine if an ebuild will be compatible for a given CPU architecture, and whether or not the package that ebuild applies to will be stable on said architecture. In my newest video, I go over how to use the package.accept_keywords file to mask and unmask packages on the basis of their keywords:

New video coming out later this evening. It'll be the first :gentoo: video in a while!

My fourth scripting tutorial deals with custom dockers - how to make them, how to put widgets in them, and how to incorporate them into Krita.

In this newest scripting in video, I go over creating custom extensions for Krita, which will begin on startup and allow you to directly manipulate/interact with the GUI.

In my second video on scripting in , I cover how to create plugins out of your scripts, to make them reusable and interoperable with Krita itself.
