Years ago, I had this cheap $10 "gaming" mouse I bought maybe on ebay or dealextreme. It was perfect: shaped well, no weird, sticky texture. I lost it (maybe left at a friends house) and never saw it again. Tried to buy one online, but I think the model was discontinued. I'd like to get a good mouse for work: Does anyone have any mouse recommendations?
Added some features I liked from Acme, right-click to find the next instance for a word.
When I start using a new program, usually I spend some time changing the keyboard shortcuts to what I'm used to. This sometimes involves learning a new configuration file format. In the case of ~rabbits/left, it was very easy, as the 'configuration' is just a couple of functions in the c source code.
Recently added support for SVG chord symbols on my chordbook gemsite.
As it turns out, many gui #gemini clients (deedum, lagrange, amfora) have atrocious svg support
Probably will look into it for lagrange in the future.
Today, I calculated the meter of each 'letter' of #psalm119 using https://github.com/christian-classics-ethereal-library/hyphenator
The word "blessed" is counted as one syllable, but we can make it split it into two.
Hi! My name is Manuel. I struggle since forever to become the person that I actually am, and to finally throw out that full-time autopilot that’s just killing time by watching youtube videos and fantasizing about doing stuff I never end up doing.
I don’t think there’s a better place for me to achieve this mission than Merveilles.town, which made me move here.
Sometimes I manage to create something, but the struggle is far from over. I am happy to have you along for the ride! :)
I've written the first two pages, please see
Powered by lists.sr.ht and updated every ten minutes by a crude cron job script. (No conflict resolution yet, but all changes are saved in the email list, so nothing is lost).
@sir At least to some degree (I think) this is explained here https://www.raptitude.com/2010/07/your-lifestyle-has-already-been-designed/
Related: I don't trick Vim out to be an IDE-alike, and neither should you. I use mostly vanilla Vim:
I use a second terminal and shell commands to do various tasks I might ask of an IDE, such as building the software, finding compile errors, bulk find or bulk replace, using tools like grep, sed, awk, make, etc. This approach is very flexible - almost any task can performed and almost any question answered without having to use rails laid down by IDE designers - but also practical, because they can be turned into re-usable scripts.
Good reference if you lack shell proficiency:
@purism I was unable to find the place where you explain how that funding will be used (allocating internal developer time to work on the apps, paying upstream developers…). Can you point me to that page?
Shitpost that turned into a blog post
If you don't know what negabinary is, it's base -2
In maths, when you have a base, you multiply each digit by the base power the position before summing them up
For instance in decimal (base 10), 367 = 7 * 10^0 + 6 * 10^1 + 3 * 10^2 = 7 * 1 + 6 * 10 + 3 * 100
In binary (base 2), 101 = 1 * 2^0 + 0 * 2^1 + 1 * 2^2 = 1 * 1 + 0 * 2 + 1 * 4 = 5
In negabinary, it's interesting, you get 110 = 0 * (-2)^0 + 1 * (-2)^1 + 1 * (-2)^2 = 0 * 1 + 1 * (-2) + 1 * 4 = 2
What's interesting in negabinary is that it achieves a similar result to balanced trinary, which is getting every natural number from -infinity to +infinity without using a bit for the sign. But it achieves it using 2 states, which is easier to have with current technology (transistors only make 2 states, and technologies that make 3 states are much more expensive)
Although there is a guy that has a tractor with a trailer that he put some old church pews in that goes around the villages at the weekend so people can get about.
The real great thing ThML is the div1 div2 div3 structure.
Converts really nicely into gemtext headings which work well in clients with ToC's.
Things which don't always work nice: block quotes, italics.
And I haven't implemented notes, footnotes, or links yet.
