@rho yeah online store has them at $59 USD so it’s about right for exchange rate.
Usually we get it more inflated than that.
@rho nice, that sounds very promising. I’ll have to find out how much I’ll get reamed for one in NZ... 🤔
saw some reddit thread on diy routers, and saw Ubiquiti Edge routers mentioned... they look seriously good for stuff all $, the ER-X looks great for home use - anyone have experience with them? Obviuosly I'll have to add a wifi thing to the system if I change to it, but I want more control over my system.
Crap. this dude popped up on youtube, and now I'm looking at his site for audio stuff...
@Mnemonic lol this has been modified in little bits over time, usually while blobbing watching tv so it’s not like I’ve sat and dedicated hours to it in a solid sitting 🙂
I moved ~/.i3status to ~/.config/i3/i3status.conf because it annoyed me, the i3 config is set to read it from there.
- Clean is my current setup, needs xbacklight and alsa-utils for media buttons to work (if you have them), I only use brightness and volume/mute.
I think there's still some redundant stuff in there commented out, but it's pretty tidy. I also use the same on kids netbook.
~/.Xresources Xft.dpi adjust to suit res.
@gaurdianaq easy learning curve (hey I can do it and I’m no coder), the config is human readable so you can work out what does what, and there’s a ton of configs online for it.
Mmm I need to put my updated ones somewhere 🤔 I use i3 on my machine, and have it set so certain programs start in a particular workspace; so all chat apps on one for example.
I should probably introduce myself. I've been using GNU/Linux for over 20 years now, since way back in the Slackware days. I've been a regular attendee of some of the US Linux conferences, and have finally gotten up the nerve to present at a few. I also do a bit of bicycle and motorcycle riding when the weather allows.
Google put hidden microphones in people's houses and when caught admitted they shouldn't have been so secretive about it. They claim innocent intentions and the mics were never on. Most people believe them. That's the difference between them and Facebook. If FB did this, folks would flip. Google has credibility, and it's worth asking how they got it, how they maintain it, and whether they deserve it.
@fatboy dunno 😆
