I spent a good chunk of the day (for my lazy standards) studying some #erlang code for a thing I want to remix in its modern sibling. I love how brutalist yet elegant the language is. Makes me remember why I've been very close to it for well over a decade now. Smol and verbose in a charming way. The alien tech beast mode VM is just a cherry on top. ♥️
What makes it even harder is that I'm not really good at "selling" myself in an interview :/ Telling someone that I'll probably not be as fast as others, because I'll end up spending time cleaning things up and/or trying/discovery new things. While this is true and in my experience so far leads to a better product and produces results, it's not something that most HR personals like to hear. Anyone any ideas how to frame this better?
So I have this artisanal #bspwm (arch btw) laptop setup and
a) xdg-open URL fails (if #Firefox is running already) with 'firefox is already running but not responding' error
b) no links are clickable from electron apps such as slack (nothing happens, not even that error)
xdg-settings and xdg-mime report everything in order, i.e. firefox is the default etc. This might have to do something with DBUS but I'm too dumb to understand how things depend on it. Any hints? 🙏
