I am still learning about Custom domain and blogging stuff.

Moved blog from www to blog sub-domain.

Now it is at

Pinned toot

Every blogger out there seem to be using a blogging platform.
Is there anyone here who writes a static HTML page each blog entry or use a MarkDown to HTML kind of system to automate building simple pages instead of relying on a CMS such as WordPress, Joomla or ?

Day 1 to 7 of #LFS - Attempt 2.5 

My previous attempt to LFS went for 12 days. I was going for a 32Bit build, built on a true 32bit Intel CPU. Laptop I was using is from 2007. I had many issues with files probably caused by file corruption, after all it has a ~11 years old HDD. Let it die in peace.

I started building LFS from scratch for 64bit using my daily driver laptop. This week is spent doing the same thing (building toolchain) for a 64bit AMD CPU.

This. This post encapsulates the whole ethos behind for me.

@yarmo didn’t finish, but got a lot out of the challenge. By his own admission it has improved his blog and increased his desire to write again.

Mission accomplished. Nice work, Yarmo.

Microsoft steals name of Linux Desktop project (MauiKit and the Maui distribution) for their project that does the same thing and then blames Linux community for using that name to begin with (which is obvious trademark infringement as they've both had those names for years now). Abusing power over GitHub to then delete any issues on their project related to the name collision and deny they are at fault for ignoring the first search result that comes up for the name Maui.

You can tell they are trying to embrace, extend, and extinguish. But with blunders like this and the way their megacorp stooge bosses like to handle it they won't be extending anything.

Advice for any would be bloggers out there who can’t be bothered learning the technical side of blogging.

No excuse not to join#100DaysToOffload now! 😊

@mike, I couldn't find the search bar in your blog.
What about a search page with ddg search bar that makes search within your blog by adding "" after the search term?

Will you use COVID-19 Contact-Tracing Apps when they become widely available? 

@murtezayesil @duckduckgo

Nicky case has posted a comic about privacy respecting contact tracing. 3blue1brown has done a video adaptation of that chomic. I will do a bit more looking into the algorithms mentioned. This solution looks like it shows some potential.

I don't mind people using it. I understand that many people are worried and they can't stay home 24/7 and still earn their living expenses.

I live in a lightly infected region of the World and have no right to talk about how people in other regions should react to such tracking.

@duckduckgo has tooted this tweet

I believe this deserves its own poll.

If you don't mind, please share your reason!

I would like to call myself a 🦀 (pronounced ), but am still a cub.

I have so many tabs open right now!
22 Tabs on Firefox
5 on Vivaldi
4 on Chromium powered apps.
Also CS course video + VSCode

I have 6.7GiB usable RAM (5.6GiB used) + 32GiB swap (1.6GiB used).

I'm satisfied with how well Linux uses system resources, and how light Linux Mint is. Even though computer is swapping, I am not noticing slow down.

PS: I checked, all firefox tabs were loaded.

AMD A8 APU - 4cores - 2.2GHz
8GiB installed RAM - 6.7GiB usable (shared with GPU)
Linux Mint 19

I love the "Guest Session" in Linux Mint and users with reduced privileges. I can let my housemates use my computer without they do anything harmful to my system. They can use office and web browser which is enough.

In the opposite side, my roommate lended his laptop (Win10) to his friend for him to write essay assignment. When it was returned, it had cracked software installed. Cracked means it was downloaded from a shady website. His computer with NVMe storage was slower than my SSD laptop.

Actually, let's #poll that!

Which is easier?

Dear admins,

I recently deployed an instance and it works great. Only complain I have is that system cannot send emails for users to register themselves. I have to enter username and password as admin to add my family members.

Am I missing some package or config to allow sending emails?

Currently there is no email associated with my domain. Should I set an email like ""?

If I remember correctly, in one of your videos you mention that your home directory was a git repository.

My experience with git is limited to GitHub and public repositories but I think you would use a private repository for that. But I still can't imagine how useful "git repo as home directory" could be.
I mean, think about all the cache and browser cookies you will end up uploading.

I was wondering:
- Why? What benefits are there in git as home dir?
- Who should do it?


Do you use a ToDo / Task management system?
If No, why?
If Yes, which system or apps do you use?

This is why I use Linux 😂

Computer Illiteracy Issues (Reddit Stories r/AskReddit)

Personal Pledge to Keep Mastodon Not Shitty.

1. Post no distractions. Our time is so short, and so much to do. Each thing I write should aim to make others better off.

2. Ignore shock and flash. Support quiet voices of value. Don't reward outrageous, it breeds more outrage.

3. Reply for the better. Don't pander. Don't doggie-pile on dissenters.

4. Assume humanity, prepare for trolls. I might not see the harm I do. Others don't see how they are perceived. Remain aware of others' intentions.
