Okay, I need to write another #introduction for here, don't I?
Hi, I'm Fabian!
Theoretically, I do unixy computery things that you may or may not care about - the fish shell, some weird tiling script for kwin,...
I also enjoy music - I grew up with metal and blues but am trying to expand. Also videogames.
But in practice, what I do here most of the time is stupid puns, and jeansifying people's avatars.
I'm german but ~98% of my posts are in english.
New logo, who dis?
I don't quite know what this is.
Well, I guess it's an irish short film.
But, like, what is it? It's... stop motion, but with people? WHy? What?

If you need an "and", is it not two things?
That's my main beef with that "unix philosophy" phrase that people keep throwing around: Nobody can agree on what one thing *is*!
It's nice as a guideline - "try not to do too much", "focus on your core" or something, but as this holy grail it never really worked, unless you're writing the 2000th cat implementation (without "-v" of course)
Art & bad artists
Reading someone's plea for people not to play a (currently free) game because it's made by an abuser, and... I don't agree.
My take has always been that you can enjoy art made by a bad person, if you're able to, as long as
- the art itself isn't bad (e.g. it's advocating for racism)
- you're not giving more money to the creator (e.g. you've already bought it)
I've quit both Iced Earth and lostprophets because I couldn't stand them anymore, but if you feel differently, have at it!
Probably not a banana.
I sometimes do computery things. Also I can't art.
