It looks like tootle has been doubling some of my replies.

I see that Pine host their own web services on the RockPro64... but they've hooked 48 up together.

I'm much more of a software guy than a hardware guy.

Why is there not just a 'number one top device' that everyone uses for a given price bracket and use case?

What hardware do people use for hobbyist-level home labs that host services like nextcloud, gitea, that you access from out and about?

I've only ever used Raspberry Pis, and I'd like to make a performance upgrade. Perhaps a RockPro64?

I'd like to migrate the services I run on a VPS into a machine in my flat under my control.

Is this a bad idea, security-wise?

The vim-gitgutter plugin has completely changed how I deal with looking through changes in my repositories and staging them. Previously, I could never be bothered dealing with changes at the hunk level, always just staging/unstaging entire files. gitgutter lets you jumps between unstaged changes in a file and stage or undo them individually super easily, indicating changes at the side.

10/10 recommend.

I would absolutely LOVE to get a Pinebook pro, but I already have a laptop. What can I do to convince myself that it is necessary?

November blog post is up! Pinebook Pro, PinePhone, PineTime... even the PineTab! We've got news on all of it.

Imposter syndrome has been telling me otherwise for a while now, but I think I might just post the link to my first real project… It's not finished by any means and also not optimized for mobile yet as it was intended for desktop usage in uni classes…

With all the disclaimers out of the way, here's NeuroModelJS!

A Hodgkin-Huxley model simulation for the browser!

Not the first of its kind, but it's mine 😊

Found a cool little vim plugin that shows a little scrollbar in the status bar.

Anybody familar with XRender,

what is the "xcb_render_picture_t pid" that is passed to most functions? How do I generate a pid?

I'm looking for a cheap, lightweight laptop, and have my eye on the PineBook Pro. Would the ARM CPU have a significant difference in day-to-day usage? Presumably linux distros are much more sparse for ARM.

Slowly making my way through all desktop mastodon clients. I've used telephant for the past couple months and, though very user friendly, it wasn't great at loading images. Mastodon, being quite visual, really needs images.

Been using tootle for 20 minutes, and holy cow it is fast, in both UI and populating the feeds.

aaaaaaaand done!

A total of about an hour of figuring out what's what, and is up and running on my laptop, sending all requests through tor.

Up and running already.... sort of.

These searx results are not ideal.

Ever seen Qtile with round corners?

That is the fruit my weekend's labour.

This week is the week I finally set up a locally running searx.
