@iah I do share my dotfiles, yeah :)

git.sr.ht/~kungtotte/dotfiles

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.

Most minimalists seem to be "extremist minimalists" (extreminimalists?).

But #minimalism is not about owning less than X things, it is about not taking part in excessive consumption just for the sake of consumption! Its about getting _real_ value out of things rather than having lots of things with little value.

So, let me re-phrase:

Government-run study, involving shortening the work week for government employees proves that productivity can be *gained* by shortening the work week.

Does business jump on that insight and clear opportunity to gain productivity *for free*, thus edging a competitive advantage on the market?

No. This happens only after unions get involved.

"Capitalism efficiently allocates resources" my arse.

First step to turn our small city garden into a bio diverse paradise. We removed most of the tiles, leaving only a small terrace and replaced the sand with soil. Next planting.

These "but commutes are good actually!" articles are really cheesing me off. They all boil down to people enjoying dedicated break time where they have no work or personal responsibilities. You don't need a commute for that, you need boundaries.

@hund bullying is never okay. That goes for both sides; if I understand what I've been reading correctly, Stallman creates a hostile environment around him. So much so that his reinstatement has the other SFF volunteers ánd workers rebelling against it. (Leaving out everyone else.) It's blown up a lot, but that the SFF is seen as not a good place to volunteer with or to work together with should surely be discussed.

#SverigesRadio Riksdagsskolkare ska kunna straffas med indraget arvode
sverigesradio.se/artikel/riksd

Bra poänger om att det går att tappa förtroende med så mycket 'skolk'. I andra arbeten, eller studier, hade det inte gått att vara kvar med en del av den graden av frånvaro. Skulle vilja se #öppnadata om detta. Varför kallas det ens skolk och inte misskötsel av arbetsuppgifter?

Early start to the stream tonight because we're all playing a new game: Valheim

The Valheim server is sharing a machine with the Owncast server, so let's see how this goes... 🤞

Dropped Frames had just a nice talk about this survival game, called Valheim:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/892970/Valheim/

"A brutal exploration and survival game for 1-10 players, set in a procedurally-generated purgatory inspired by viking culture. Battle, build, and conquer your way to a saga worthy of Odin’s patronage!"

It's still early access, but it looks like it is very well polished already, and interestingly it is supported for Linux! So if you are interested check it out!

Another interesting thing is, that it uses the Unity engine, and the devs didn't forgot to push the "make a Linux version" button too. Yes, I know, that's not how game development works, but if Valheim has a Linux version, with some complex stuff in it, why we can't have a Magic the Gathering?

So, yeah, kudos for the publisher and the devs for supporting Linux. The game is 17 euros at the moment, and looks like worth it, as it stands at 96% approval rating from more than 17k people, after just one week.

A week ago I picked up Valheim (store.steampowered.com/app/892) when it hit Early Access on Steam, and I've been totally hooked thinking about how to improve my viking settlement, where to source mushrooms for my tamed boars until I can get a farm going, fighting off hoards of enemies and running from giant trolls.

Thoroughly recommend it, it's viking themed Minecraft 👍

Just renewed our gamingonlinux.com domain for another three years.

Long live #Linux and #LinuxGaming

Just out of curiosity I've been tracking the battery use and charging patterns of my new phone (Moto G Plus 5G). I've got it set to battery saving mode, but I'm not being conservative in using it, and it uses on average 26% battery between charges. I typically charge it once per day for 25-30 minutes, on two occasions I've had to charge it twice in a day (I keep it between 50 and 80%)

So 190 minutes of charging and 185% battery used since Saturday (Jan 30th). Not bad, Motorola 👍
