Pinned toot

@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.

Whenever my wife uses the phrase “I’ve been thinking”

That means I either have to move, build, paint, or buy something.

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.

Well after all my talk about Window Managers, I've finally taken the leap. This toot is coming from WM. Unfortunately, I don't know any Lua, time to start learning I guess. Anyway, is great, really easy to set up and basic usage is really easy. Really recommend it!

Why does every genre novel have to be part of a series? I can't remember book 1 by the time book 2 comes out. Give me standalones.

The problems inherent in dynamic linking became apparent to the industry years ago, but instead of doing the logical thing and moving back to static linking, they invented Docker

USB-C is the worst technology that humankind has yet invented.

You literally can't tell from the cable or from the port which standards it actually supports.

There's USB, Thunderbolt 3 (some ports are slower than others), DisplayPort (various versions), just charging (various wattages).

How did this ever get shipped?

Am I the only one that likes that we're trying to move away from racially (and otherwise) loaded terms in the tech industry?

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.
