@iah I do share my dotfiles, yeah :)
I should probably write down a list of software you'd need to run this out of the box. The big ones would be xst, rofi, awesome (duh), feh, and fish. That makes for a usable system with my dotfiles, then some other tools are needed for full functionality like screenshots and transparency/compositing.
Considering #voidlinux as next desktop OS for my Dell XPS 13 9343. Does anybody have a qualified opinion and/or experience with it?
I am looking for a rolling release cycle without systemd and void seems to fit. Desktop will be lightweight and tiling (awesomewm), the rest mainly CLI tooling.
#ShowerThoughts: one simple way to reduce the flood of #eWaste would be to say to vendors, you can't sell new computers (including anything that runs an OS) in our country without a 10 year full replacement guarantee, or more. That way hardware companies would have an incentive to make devices that last, and provide at least 10 years of software updates.
Thanks for the write-up, I wasn't aware of the earlier stuff.
One major reason for me to boycott FB is the fact they created a closed Internet inside the Internet. There's heaps of content over there posted by users that should be freely available but is closed off to anyone who has not a FB account. Public agencies for exemple don't post anywhere else anymore. Public radio shows that only interact with their listeners through FB. It's infuriating.
A number of hospitals here in Sweden are announcing states of emergency due to lack of medical supplies. Scheduled non-emergency surgeries are postponed, etc.
What happened, you ask? Natural disaster? Mass shootings depleting supplies? Theft?!
No, they switched suppliers and the new one can't deliver.
I bet they were cheaper though! Go #neoliberalism!
In honor of World Mental Health day and our organisation's focus on #selfcare, I've opened a new channel in our Rocketchat called "How are you?" It's meant to give coworkers a judgement-free place to talk about how they are doing, how work is going, how we can help each other, how the organisation can facilitate selfcare better etc.

Just found this opensource.com article about Greenpeace becoming an 'open source' organisation. Quite ironic, since a few months ago I met one of their principal IT managers, who openly mocked our efforts to use #foss and #opensource IT in-house. Greenpeace relies 100% on Google's Gsuite. Any comparison with fair trade coffee was met with a "yeah but this is easier, we just don't care about Google's dubious side."
Here's another, err.. unique screenshot for #ScreenshotSunday. I know I'm really boring, but I really like my setup! :D

it isn't, man. If we where friends IRL I would explain it better first drunk, then next morning sober <3
We're taught to be alone, and see some kind of dumb pride in it - while at the same time we yearn for touch, familiarity and love.
We deserve MORE than the shitsandwich society tells us we deserve just because we're men.
