I wanted to read the documentation for the ext4 "dump" command, which I don't have installed. But I know better than to type "man dump" into a search engine. 👨 💩

Big announcement time 🎉

This project started as a "labor of love" side project but the awesome community response clearly showed me it deserved even more attention and care.

I'm excited to announce that NLnet / @NGIZero will be funding the project, allowing me to dedicate my full time to it and contribute in my own way to our collective struggle for online identity and security.

I thank all of you for your motivating feedback. Now, we can really begin 😎

I set double tap to take a screenshot and it works even with a case on.

I am binge watching Game of Thrones, courtesy a friends account, and now I can relate to all the collective internet outrage when the show was on air. I finally understood what 'First of His Name' refers to on some people's account on Mastodon 😂️.

Tried to install the Arch arm build for the Pi but it just won't boot. DietPi on the other hand is up and running in seconds.

Waybar got an update and everything is back to normal.

Someone on Fosstodon got in touch with me eventually, and we've closed a deal today. I'm starting next month and absolutely stoked to grow into my role and become even better for the next time around! 🎉

I had absolutely no idea what would happen or any expectation with this toot. Almost out of desperation, this was me shouting into the fediverse -- yet 76 boosts and dozens of replies and DMs later, here I am, incredibly taken aback by the response and the help extended. Thank you EVERY ONE! ♥

Ugh. Updated the wallpaper and Waybar disappeared. Spent 10 minutes going through my sway config for any unintentional errors, checking the git diff, picking another wallpaper and generally cursing myself in frustration but then I tried to run waybar manually only to find that its crashing for no reason. Checked the open issues for waybar and sure enough an update to the package 'fmt' earlier in the day had broken waybar and I didn't know until I reloaded Sway. 😂️. Now waiting for the update.

Privacy should not be a luxury. It should not be a bargaining chip. It should never have a price tag.

The internet speed crawls down to a one-tenth of its normal speed at times and I have to restart the modem via admin panel to get it back up. Twice this week now. Don't want to think about the possibility that the modem might be dying. Bought it in February this year 😐️.

Listening to the first episode of Artists and Hackers.

Immediate gripe is that the hand on the page is annoying as fuck. And no feed for the podcast.

In a highly scientific test conducted by yours truly, I have settled the argument of which runs better on my machine: or .
