@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 really need some wise friends that don't know any of my other acquaintances and friends so I could have people I can truly talk to cause sometimes I feel like shit and I can't tell anyone I know.

Sort of related, since I started using Mastodon I'm feeling better sometimes because I get to exchange some ideas with nice people. Y'all are cool. I like you.

Gosh, using efficient lightweight OS/SW really ruins using anything else for me. I'm so used to everything I do being instantaneous even on modest hardware that any delays while using other bloated OSs/DEs is super annoying.

Weird how most "crimes against humanity" are crimes with a finite number of victims, but crimes like fossil fuel profiteering or the destruction of the rainforest, where humanity itself is the victim, aren't actually crimes at all

A few peeps may remember I shared progress wiring this blue beast which is now on the cover of the NZV8 magazine.

Kinda stoked I get to work on things like this, even if it is a headache and sometimes stressfull at the time. The end result is awesome.

I’d share the whole article, but seeing as it’s current release I won’t. Copyright etc.
You can however see his DJR XE which I wired a few years ago here: themotorhood.com/themotorhood/

A few hours and ~200 lines of #C code later, I built something that already resembles a #roguelike, including character movement and a trivial level generator.

This was basically an exercise in curses programming, now I wonder if I should give it a try to build an actual game on this foundation.

I think a lot of projects would be improved if the devs knew to stop while they were ahead

It's been a productive weekend for me, despite being on-call for work.

Mounted extra rear lights and extra high-beams on my car. Since I live in the middle of nowhere and I leave for work at 04:30 in the morning the original lights don't cut it for me.

I got to try the rear lights out yesterday and they're great, no risk of running the cats over now :P Tomorrow morning the high-beams are getting tried out.

With Blender and Krita becoming seriously competitive with their proprietary alternatives, we're finally eroding away a major cornerstone of proprietary operating systems and software

Anyone here (I guess most of you) having their own NAS? How secure is it and how easy can it be secured?

I’m thinking of buying Synology to move all my personal files, photos and etc on it.

"This tutorial is meant to be understandable to all new users, so if you found something unclear, don't sit and blame yourself - complain!"

I've always liked that line

One of my favorite things to see in a terminal doing an upgrade:

11 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 14.5 MB of archives.
After this operation, 5,120 B disk space will be freed.

Remember: in 1968 NYC garbagemen struck and within a week, the city's mayor was on his knees begging for mercy. It lasted all of 8 days.

Then, two years later in Ireland, bankers went on strike for *6 months* and the economy kept on growing and history has largely forgotten it even happened.

Capitalists need you more than you need them.

@wezm I have a unconventional view on software design, and you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who agrees with me on everything. But these philosophies are the source of innovation and have led to the production of software that you seem to enjoy. If you were to bubble yourself in from ideas that contradict your ideology, then what're are you giving up?

It's no skin off my back if you chose to end your subscription. Just my 2c on your way out.

Today I read about Disneys "Go Away Green". A shade of green-gray designed to be the least visible colour in their parks and used to hide away things that need to be in the open, but you want people disinterested in.
