How I use sticky windows in BSPWM
"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 like rEFInd: Makes it real easy to boot from multiple systems, on multiple disks.
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.
I've been using computers for 20 years, and I still haven't found the ideal key combination for switching keyboard layouts.

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.

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.
Did a quick Gopher version of my website. Easier than I was expecting.
