Does anyone else constantly get files named as ' (single quote) in their home dir?

I think it somehow happens by clumsy saving in vim or Emacs.

Any trick to solve this? :)

Firefox to provide "contextual suggestions", by collecting and sending search queries to their "partners".

If you have a JavaScript framework based project, that's been left for a couple of years, good luck getting it up to date again!

I might as well start from scratch...

I am VERY happy and proud to announce the public release of the "OpenBSD Webzine" !

#openbsd #bsd

Had to fix my email address on all of my 12 personal git repos...

I had a fake dummy address before, but I needed to change it since I plan on publishing a few of these.

Wow, after 25 years of Unix experience, I learned that you can filter output in #less.

Press ampersand (&) and enter a regex to show only lines matching the regex.

Press ampersand (&) and then exclamation mark (!) to apply an inverse filter.

After 20 years of using computers, I decided it's time to learn proper typing. I want blank keycaps :)

I've been using openSUSE for work the past couple of weeks, and (together with OpenBSD) I think I've found my server replacements for CentOS. :opensuse:

Looking at my keyboards, I realized I've bought all four in the month of September, on different years.

But, I've missed the last couple of years, So, that means I have around 5 months to decide on the next one :)

"Chat application" used to mean a simple thing, communication in short text messages.

Now, if it doesn't have audio/video, some channel/group type thing, it is labeled as "legacy" or "inextensible"?

Those are different categories that can coexist as different solutions.

XMPP and Matrix/Element are not competing in the same area. Matrix is something totally different.

And what does cryptocoin have anything to do with chatting 😂

I tried again the first ever Linux distro I ever used, SUSE 8, in the early 2000s.

In the beginning, I used to login as root with this nice red background :)

I've been using so many window managers, at the same time, on my different machines: spectrwm, herbstluftwm, stumpwm, and bspwm.

This was manageable mainly thanks to sxhkd.

Now, I finally consolidated all to bspwm.

That's because I finally gave up on virtual monitors on my ultrawide. It's much more flexible to rely on the split ratio, and bspwm's very powerful window placement rules.

GNU Guix is an interesting system, probably the first time I extensively read a manual *before* trying something :)

Based on my install, I wrote some notes on static IP addresses, during and post installation.

Sometimes I need to post full scripts or code in a blog post. I was thinking where to put them. Self-hosted pastebin? Some kind of git system? Which one?

Then I though, I'll just add a new content type in hugo with a simple layout. I think it turned out ok.

Finally converted my Emacs config to org "literate" style.

I was sceptical before, but It is so much better now. :emacs: :orgmode:

Do you enable visualization of whitespace characters (tabs, spaces...) in your editor?
