@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.

I finally deleted my Facebook account.

I was only keeping it because my classmates have a group where they share important stuff. But I guess they can message me if I need to know something.

Considering 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.

The number of people who believe that private organizations are somehow the solution over public works is astonishing. Yeah, those private prisons with mandatory minimum capacities and Amazon deliveries literally killing people are so much better 🙄

It's been a while since I posted a #ScreenshotSunday but since I've recently switched up my desktop theme, I thought I'd show it off.
#Manjaro #Linux

@kev
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.

I jotted down some of the reasons why I don't use . I thought maybe some people may find it useful.

This is what it's like living in the boondocks. Go to get coffee in the kitchen and you see a deer munching on fallen apples just outside your window.

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 !

In honor of World Mental Health day and our organisation's focus on , 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 and 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."
