@lunduke my offer still stands to make you a gopher hole as a front end to your mp3 vault. You know you want to enjoy some gopher, ;)
Maybe you could get it on Veronica somehow.
You can also run gopher and any web server at the same time on the same server, since gopher just uses port 70
I'm looking for a nice, minimal word processor for my phone. Something like #wordgrinder, but a GUI program for Android. If someone knows of something that would fit the bill, I would appreciate it; it shouldn't be that hare for me to write one, bit I'd prefer not to have to. Perhaps @lunduke might know of something? I can use wordgrinder in Termux, but I'd like something a little more native, which can render bold and italic styles, and differently sized headings. Right now I'm using Markor.
I would like to thank the team making #lineageos this Thanksgiving for all the hard work that has gone into making an awesome Android alternative. I think sometimes we (or at least I) take for granted the work that people put into apps to make them easy and effortless to use. I would also like to thank the #artixlinux team for making a rockin awesome distro, and supporting init freedom!
home. So I continued, trying distro after distro, Miyo after Gentoo, and yet there was always something which drew me back home, back to Artix. Whether it be the joys of Runit, the vast landscape of the AUR, or the occasional joy of fixing little things that break every once in a while, without the pains of major breakages occurring without reason. I have found my linux home, and gosh darnit, I am staying here.
Sometimes, in life, you see that the world outside of your bubble looks rather enticing, and maybe you would be happier if you had a sampling of it. Such has been my desire to switch Linux distros, for no other reason than to see if the grass is really greener. And when I accidentally broke my Artix install, I had the perfect excuse! The journey has led me far, through thither and yonder, fraternizing with Devuan, sampling Void, experiencing Venom, tasting Slackware; and yet, I did not feel at
@lunduke I'm looking for a little palmtop-style computer, with the ideals of 1- being able to run a rad operating system (DOS, FreeDOS, AmigaOS, maybe even Linux/*BSD) and 2- having some means of getting information off of it when I need to transfer data to my regular setup. I anticipate having to save up for it, but I'd like recommendations on what I should be looking for. I don't want a GUI (I'd mostly just be running wordgrinder and vim) & I anticipate not having a working network connection.
@lunduke I have thought of a challenge idea: go one full day (24 hours) without connecting to the internet in any way. I am sure it would be more challenging for you than most, given your channel and occupations, but I think it could have some interesting results. I am going to give it a shot, starting from midnight tonight, to see if I can do it. (It just needs a trendy hashtag)
Also, @lunduke, my dude, DistroTube has an irc channel; Switched to Linux has an irc channel; are you going to join in the fun? It's no ham radio, but it certainly seems right up your alley.
@lunduke, you maniacal maniac, you have absolutely changed my world view.
I tried going "unplugged" (I turned mobile data and wifi off on my phone, so I could only use it offline), at the suggestion of a previous video, and it was a great experience. The only people I interacted with were the people around me. And I very quickly felt more creative and productive. I recommend everyone to try it!
I've decided I'm going to compile a folder (on my phone probably) of things that make me smile. Jokes, cute pictures, nice things people have said to me. And whenever I end up with days like today, I can just take a minute to open it up and look around at stuff in it.
I used to have a physical box I kept stuff like that in, but I don't think I could bring it to work.
I recommend it for people who are easily agitated or having a rough day, so you can just take a moment and regain your bearings.
@christitus said it best: keep politics out of your social media if you want to prevent being canceled. No matter what you say, people will be offended, and anything you say can and will be held against you. Especially on Twitter
@kyle "Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say."
This article about Google's project to store and analyze millions of Americans' health care data confirms my suspicions about the Fitbit acquisition.
Many people who don't care about mass data collection because "I've got nothing to hide" change their tune when it's health care data. #privacy
@lunduke good to hear some one still stands for the facts in the time of emotion-boosting networks (be it social or media)
On one hand, tech companies violate our #privacy, capture massive amounts of data without consent, and process and categorize it w/ ruthless efficiency to ever-more-precisely target us with ads.
On the other hand, AARP keeps trying to sell my deceased dad life insurance.
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the song of angry men,
It is the music of a people who will
Not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drum,
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes.
