@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.

It ain't supposed to be bent...

Impact happened at around 25 KPH.

Oh what a wonderful morning :/

Going down a dirt road I've been down hundreds of times I heard a loud bang, stopped and looked and saw nothing (it's pitch black), then on the way back a phone line was hanging down over the road blocking me.

Turns out it was hanging low and I clipped it with the top of my truck (bending a stainless steel plate!), no markings or warnings about low clearance or anything.

Hope nobody needs their phones for the day...

Pro-tip for day 2: There's a difference between modifying the values at positions 1 and 2 and modifying the values *pointed at* by the values at positions 1 and 2.

Took me way too long to figure out why my code was wrong... Me dumb.

Doing it in this year, going to try and complete it all (time permitting): (spoilers, obviously)

Clean/good code takes precedent over clever/fast for me.

I probably wouldn't have gotten around to buying one myself but two years ago I got a Crockpot slow cooker for Christmas, and boy it makes for some excellent pulled pork let me tell you.

Makes the house smell delicious while it's cooking too.

Wrote a little utility in Nim to search and play YouTube videos directly from the command line.

This is partly due to my dissatisfaction with the ytview script from the Bash-Snippets package. - 210 LoC
clitube.nim - 44 LoC

Size of release binary: 637 KB (amd64)

Used only the standard library, no dependencies.

I might prefer Nim to Bash/Python for small portable utilities in the near future.

Lol I'm so excited, we finally have an external IT vendor visiting us again. My "wow a woman in IT" jar might see its first euro today. 😂

Idea: federated social network where each instance is your IRL neighborhood and the goal is to help get people away from screens and to hang out IRL

If you think a single person is just too small to make a difference, you should read up on Jadav Payeng, the "Forest Man of India".

When he was 16 he started planting trees on a deforested sandbar. He made it a habit of planting at least one tree every single day - over the course of the last four decades.

His forest now encompasses an area of about 1,360 acres / 550 hectares and is home to not only over one hundred elephants, but also monkeys, tigers and deer.

Be the change you desire!

It really makes me uncomfortable to see husbands casually mocking the bodies of their wives (and other women) in social gatherings etc. The fat shaming is so disrespectful to their partner and relationship.

The ironic thing is that most of the times they're out of shape themselves lol!

Black Friday hosting deals have started. Good time to start a site or to switch to a better provider. I use GreenGeeks and you can now have your site hosted for 3 years for a total of $89.64. They're more eco-friendly too. See my affiliate link for details

@GigaByte4711 thank you, it's very odd seeing family on the wrong side of history.

Man I love a good action movie every now and then.

Just re-watched Pacific Rim for the first time since I saw it in the cinema, and giant mechas punching the shit out of giant monsters is just the thing for a relaxing Saturday evening.

Disengage brain, open eyes, pour in entertainment.

This Sacha Baron Cohen ADL speech is phenomenal. He absolutely torches Mark Zuckerberg for his moral failings at Facebook. Everybody needs to see this.

I Have Had Issues: I'm not seeking attention or sympathy.

I'm sharing because:
• Many suffer in silence and I want those people to know that they aren't alone.
• There's times I haven't been easy to be around - I'm sorry, but that're most difficult for me too.
• The more I've hid my "inner world", the more distant I've felt from everyone.
• More people should talk about it, share and appreciate the "real" version of us not the"filtered" version of social media.
