Another reminder that builds.sr.ht is awesome :)

I just want to mention, again, how useful and what a blessing songs.zachdecook.com is! I can only imagine the work that went into it, but it is very much appreciated, at least by me!
@zachdecook

anyone have an idea how could be modified to fade out the currently running app, so we could see our wallpaper?

background setting gave performance issues, so I'm thinking this approach will be better.
So far, I have

*{background-color:unset}

in gtk.css

In her youth my Mum was the punch card operator for a major computer. She also had basic programming skills.

Then she had kids and that was the end of that. Computers feel completely foreign to her now.

There’s a lot made about how computing is easier now. This afternoon she said to me “in my day you just told the thing what to do and it did the thing”. I was trying to show her how to use libre office and windows restarted. Then the wifi broke.

She got out of IT at the right time.

I needed to `sudo modprobe uinput`. This is really promising, I bet someone running would be able to get it running faster because that supports splitscreen and doesn't.

I tried out -virtual-gamepads (github.com/jehervy/node-virtua
).

syscall crashes with after I select 'gamepad'.

but we'll call this 'promising'. probably will be easier to add support to than to try to wade through the levels of complexity to get to behave nicer under (it tells me unknown keyboard layout sometimes at compile)

With the recent talk about support for some big apps, I wonder if there are any soft-gamepads that could work with on a device.

Any leads?

apparently it's also important to delete the old records... and also that the new records are correct.

Installed a new home router, and I guess it decided to get us a new IP address, so my gemini capsule is down while the new A record propagates.

today I added a script to my capsule to allow me to add to my /bookmarks.gmi file *using gemini*.

Seems like some of the browser experience could be done out in geminispace itself... less requirement for client authors, though that means more things "in the cloud".

@friend @postmarketOS ooh we *still* don't have a dang screenshot bind out of the box... Don't worry the key bind I used here is *only* for the proof of concept, check out the WIP MR for more details: gitlab.com/postmarketOS/pmapor

I hope you're able to get free from the vitriol and set your mind on higher things. (Unfollowing negative accounts helps, but maybe taking a break from the fediverse would be best).

starting to try to compile on a raspberry pi zero... it's armhf, so if the problem (running it on the pinephone) is architecture based, this will likely also fail.

Which got me thinking more about :
If I were to make a gem-app, what feature options would be desired?
Would any of the following be useful, and how should they look in ?
* notes (currently in square brackets)
* cross-references (currently in parentheses)
* word references (I experimented once with putting Strong's references in superscript)
* red-lettering (ideologically, I disagree with this)
* section titles
* chapter divisions
* verse numbers

Wrote a little script to create an outline of the gemini://gemini.zachdecook.com/cgi-bin/oebindex.sh so you can navigate the bible without thinking about the verse and chapter numbers.

Create your own programming languages, stay ahead of the AI.

Thinking of how much we use social media and why, I was wondering:

What is the primary reason you participate in the Fediverse?

Was reading by @linmob and feeling kind of left out, running 21.03, so I upgraded to master/edge. It broke phosh startup, but was fairly easy to fix by (plugging in a keyboard and) removing some unused packages and running `apk fix`.

thought i would compare mastodon clients for mobile linux.
Compiled and set up . is still compiling dependencies. One of these is written in , can you guess which one? (this experience makes me want to learn )
