I've been using computers for 20 years, and I still haven't found the ideal key combination for switching keyboard layouts.

I've tried so many combinations, including adding a dedicated second keyboard for a particular layout.

The main problem is mixed text, where I find myself changing layouts every other word...

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?

There've been a few posts about the Gemini protocol lately. I'm glad I checked it out.

People need to try it, before forming opinions. This big-tech mentality that software or innovation needs to have millions of users or have a target to take over the world is nonsense.

And it's very easy to start. There are many Gemini clients, like amfora, a fancy terminal based one, or Lagrange a GUI client that also works with Gopher.

Added tags functionality to my blog, and metadata for better display while sharing.

Hugo is great!

Other than the good Unicode support, the best part about the kitty terminal is the qutebrowser style hints. Not just for URLs, but also lines, words, hashes and more.

After years and years of putting it off, and half attempts, finally forced myself to start a blog.

Started with a couple of test posts describing my login menu.


When the rss feed is behind a captcha 🤦‍♂️

Moved instances and changed my username along the way.

Looks like I need to follow back?
