Am I the only one who absolutely hated Demon Slayer? I dropped it 4 episodes in.

LTT Linux challenge part 3 only conforms my opinion that Linux Mint Cinnamon is the best Linux desktop currently available.

While Gnome and elementary are focused on eye candy, Mint folks are doing boring job to make sure that typical user experience is good.

Simple example: installing software-properties-gtk by default. It's not pretty but at least you can install drivers to your shitty wifi card without googling.

web surfing has become all but impossible. nothing links anymore, it's all narcissistic inside linking if anything. i used to surf links across the network, stumbling from one thing to the next, surprises and missteps. now it's all search hubs and feeds rather than networks.

what we use now via the http protocol isn't really the web anymore. there's no web here. it's all silos, standing alone and trying desperately to keep me from leaving. no longer a digital ocean, now small tide pools with no path between, left in the receding wake of the surf.

I'm raising my kids with #Linux on the desktop, πŸ˜› Sure, it's heavily curated and set up by me so all they have to do is click buttons for their browser, games, etc., but that's how it should be. Linux lets them do what they want, and gives me the level of control I want, without having to go through a third party like Google or Microsoft. My 7 year old can navigate Gnome better than she can Windows.

If anyone needs to sync cookies from FF to Netscape cookies.txt file (including session cookies) to use it with curl: here is nice script for ya:

restic vs borg: restic does not have compression, BUT it supports rclone backends directly, so I can just dump backups from my work laptop to company OneDrive. Cool.

"Aw, it's over?"
"I'm afraid that's the end of the ride. Did you enjoy it?"
"Yeah! Some parts were a bit scary, and some were a bit boring, but it was exciting too! And the twists and turns and loops and- Yeah! Can I go again?"
God smiled at the soul. "Sure."

Fuck me, Fedora actually does updates like windows (during reboot) 😱

Do you check for supported/available #android ROMs before getting a new/refurbished phone?

How come Demon slayer has 8.5 score on MAL? The only good thing about this show is animation.

I love AWK. I'd probably love Perl too but its kinda hard to justify time investment when you can just use python

So Valve has released a video where they show how to take apart Steam Deck and replace some shit inside. They mentioned most people should not attempt this but if you know what you are doing - go ahead. Now imagine apple doing something like this.

It's still so funny that some people actually use Windows Server

Ursula K Le Guin, on tech workers:
"Real power goes to waste. Every wizard uses his art against the others, serving the men of greed. What good can any art be used that way? It's wasted. It goes wrong, or it's thrown away. Like slaves' lives. Nobody can be free alone. Not even a mage. All of them working their magic in prison cells, to gain nothing. There's no way to use power for good."
- "The Finder", from "Tales from Earthsea"

as mentioned in the liner notes, cover art has been added to all the mp3 files so, if that's your thing, snag the files again or grab the archives!


please be well. πŸ’•

By β€žnot badβ€œ I mean user's POV, I can't say anything about source code.
