@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.

DuckDuckGo burned a truckload of goodwill with me today
Their DDG-branded web browser for Android has a feature which [it doesn't matter what it does by design], but as a side effect it sends every URL you visited to DuckDuckGo's servers. That is the single worst thing they could do as a "privacy" focused web browser.
When this was pointed out to them, they doubled down. For a year. It took an HN front page (in the comments section they doubled down *again*) and 10 hours of arguing with them before the CEO stepped in and agreed to remove the feature.
USB-C is the worst technology that humankind has yet invented.

I _understand_ that not using master as your primary branch name may interrupt your workflow somewhat, but this is such a small inconvenience for a great step in the right direction.
Small, temporary, inconveniences like this will only result in a more welcoming community. I just don't see how that can be a bad thing.
spännande, men inte förvånande att dom som klagar på #BLM är folk, oftast vita män, som aldrig upplevt rasism och inte har en aning om vad det innebär att vara utsatt för rasism. allt som händer är inte idealt men det är tråkigt att det läggs mer fokus på allt det negativa som händer i samband med demonstrationerna än det faktiska problemet och budskapet.
