@kev and @mike
I would appreciate if you reminded me to share my daily progress about LFS.

Day 14 & 15 of #LFS - Continue, Backup, End chapter 6 

Update for day 12 & 13 of

I used Ubuntu in the past just like almost every linux newbie. Ubuntu uses systemd. So I thought I should go for systemd for my LFS setup. And I did. But I also heard that systemd is probably the most bloated/sluggish daemon manager for Linux distros.
Did I made a mistake with going systemd? I am still compiling and didn't install it yet.
Should I switch to something else?

Day 12 & 13 of #LFS - Compile or compile not, no try there is 

Meanwhile, inside the box, Schroedinger's cat plans its revenge:

Privacy Badger automatically learns to block spying ads and invisible trackers. All you have to do is install.

I just saw the trailer for "I am Mother" movie. Does Netflix has right to use GLaDOS as a character in their movie?

Night 11 of #LFS - LFS book: If it gives 5 errors, you are doing it right 

the real problem with discord that makes them truly evil is that they sell their solution as being something that provides self-determination.

when you move your community to discord, you start a what they call a "discord server."

to be clear, there is not really any such thing as a "discord server," this is just marketing terminology for group functionality.

they call it a discord "server" on purpose: they want to communicate the idea that you have full autonomy on your own "discord server," when in reality you are still at the mercy of discord as a service provider. this is truly evil, this goes beyond a lack of transparency to actively lying to potential users. not even Slack does this.

we must build real alternatives to these predatory services.

Day 10 of #LFS - Did you know Arch Linux drop support for 32bit? 

it's remarkable how much more pleasant computers are to use when you've put in the effort to make yourself a decent set of command-line tooling

i use the `fish` shell and i have it running on all my devices, including my freebsd server, including my aging macbook with an ancient version of OSX, even including my phone. and they all have the same set of functions, abstracting over platform differences, so i can now just do shit like "$ t.paste | ssh lisuan t.copy" to transfer my clipboard to my phone. and it's all kept in sync with a fossil repo. and oh my god it makes everything so *simple*

Manjaro was giving this " X is corrupted (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature))" error.
Arch is giving the same error.

I suspect that this part of the HDD is broken.

I just found this app and already I'm impressed! I have a fully(?) Free software solution for public transport and holy crap do they have support for so many systems around the world!

Transportr - Open Source Publi (Free Public Transport Assistant without Ads or Tracking) -

Day 9 of #LFS - But instead of an OS, I have been physically building myself. 

Day 8 of #LFS - It is all about testing 

Hello friends,
I am a boy who is pretty straight. I don't exactly understand why a person would be "not straight" since we don't see LGBTQ and same sex marriage kind of stuff here.

Since it is , I thought it would be a good time to start the conversation 🙂

I don't mean to hurt anyone or call anyone names. All I want is a meaningful conversation to better understand people who would become LGBTQ by actually communicating to LGBTQ.

Day 1 to 7 of #LFS - Attempt 2.5 

Been listening to the IRL podcast by Mozilla. Good stuff.
