A while ago, like 6 months ago, I was talking to a few people on here about trackerball mouses (I think @ChrisWere instigated the conversation).
I since bought myself an ergo mouse, well, 2 actually. I have one at home and one at the office. They’re weird at first, but really good once you get used to them. I haven’t had an aching forearm since!
Thanks Chris, I never would have considered an ergo mouse if it wasn’t for that discussion.
I'm a furry who enjoys designing open source 3D-printable machines.
My CAD software of choice is OpenSCAD for the sheer simplicity of it. I like it because there's no magic tools you have to wrap your head around, just write down the steps to make your product.
My 3D Printer is the Creality 3D: Ender 3 for its simplicity and price.
Currently working on building a general purpose crab robot.
Been doing more work on the Grav theme, I think I’m going to migrate over. The performance is WAY quicker than WordPress, I’ve also made some changes to fix the white space.
You guys are right, it was a little too sparse. Beaty of it is, since I’ve made the theme, I can make any changes I want in the future and I know it a lot better than the WP site.
Unfortunately, we have had to update some of the instances we have blocked.
All Gab instances and been 'upgraded' from Silenced to Suspended. Mstdn.jp has also been suspended.
This is because we have had a lot of members reporting porn themed follow bots from these instances.
Instance block list has been updated:
I like the fact that I live in a place where people get weirded out when someone says they dislike samesex marriage.
I like that saying that is on par with "Oh I think the earth is flat"
I like that the person saying it is judged for their opinion.
This is the part that rubs me the wrong way with faux-free speech. If you say dumb things, don't expect people to treat you like a genius. If you can't deal with people marrying out of love, expect to be seen as "a bit of a moron"
Well, I'm not on Pop OS, for the most part it's ok, but getting use to the new workflow will take some time I think.
Can anyone recommend any useful #Gnome extensions? I'd particularly like one that shows open windows on the top bar.
It has been a very thoughtful morning. Do you think we're cyborgs?
Been weighing up what to do about new monitors. UHD 32”+ vs ultra wide vs other options. Currently have 2x 22” HD basic plasma monitors.
After looking around lots, I think I’m going to go with 2x 24” HD IPS screens with no bezel. Nice upgrade I think, and still gives me the flexibility of having separate monitors.
