Alright now I'm gonna get into the War. Emacs or Vim, and why? Be aware I will devil's advocate you if I see a counterpoint.

My demi-humans just updated their netbook :void: , used xbps-query to see what games were in the repo and installed . They’re 9 (twins) and it’s the first time using the terminal command line and . They’re doing fine. I might put fish shell on it, so they can see the predictive auto-completion of commands to help them learning them.
They also changed the wallpaper with feh. i3 sets wallpaper from .fehbg so it’ll update on reboot too.

@whami @jessmahler yeah mine is always “oh crap I need to set that up” and skip a page and put the 1st tasks down, then that evening or whatever spend probably the same 10 minutes setting up the month and migrating the few leftover tasks.

I do think for many it’s not a tool to stay organised as much as it is a fad to spend their time on.

Anyone remembers ? The video game from 1999?

Found that relic (!) in my library the other day...

This game is a bigger part of my childhood than , so I was thinking I should spin it up again for old times' sake.

Except... How do I make a 1999 Windows game run on a 2019 Linux machine?

Well I guess there's , and I've also heard of an open-source SDL port, so... wish me luck!

@rtwx
I occasionally play games with a friend who uses windows. He needed to reboot, and of course was forced to wait for an update. (Choice? What's that?) I could tell it was going to take some time and I was bored with Ubuntu and disliked Gnome. So I wiped, installed Arch, restored my backups, installed steam and the game we wanted to play, and still beat him. In fact, we never did play that night as his update continued past our bed times.

@hund and @kungtotte is there a nice IRC channel or other communication channel for Swedish Linux/FLOSS people? Something active?

Yeah don't worry about it winter. I shoveled snow all day the other day and totally thought I was done. But go ahead and dump another six inches on me again. That's cool.

The pile of snow dumped by the snowplough at the end of our street is now officially taller than my shed too.

I wonder if they ship flamethrowers here...

The Mastodon vs Pleroma fighing really feels like [car brand] vs [car brand]. I get that there are differences between the two that matters but have little interest or knowledge about them.

And mostly it feels like (many) people pick the car brand they first got and now stick with it more like a football team, making the discussion look a bit like "Who would win in a fight, Marvel heroes or DC heroes?"

Level of "Don't wanna clean" = 9000+

Instead of getting a rag and wiping off the sofa table I just dragged the vacuum over it and decided that that was that.
