- Hopelessly addicted to

I don't usually social media but here goes nothing!

Hey, it's been a while since I've been on this thing. Social distancing is driving me crazy so I'm back seeking human comfort in the arms of internet strangers.

I've started listening to #podcasts, and AntennaPod is a really nice and powerful open source podcast app for Android phones. It's rare to get open source software this polished.

So this morning I finally beat bloodbourne.

Then I went to an arcade and played some gunslinger stratos and melty blood.

I'm loving this but I've also done nothing but vidgames today

Love having a hardware wifi kill switch on my laptop

Internet too distracting? *flick switch* Focus mode is on!

Sometimes I wonder if I've really become an adult.

Then I get excited to assemble IKEA furniture and all doubts vanish from my mind

Man... Every time I go to look up pictures of science fiction armor the dropshots from Dust 514 show up.

I miss that game so much.

The Vimist in me is crying out.

I just had to install Atom on an interns laptop and I had to try really hard not to pop off and start evangelizing about the One True Editor

Roguelikes are a good way to spend time while waiting on DNS propagation :blobmelt:

Amazon just made me push four separate buttons to end my prime "membership".

Dear lord

@iliana *walks into kitchen to find an old RHEL long past EOL*
oh egads, my distro's ruined!
but what if... I were to download RedHat and disguise it as my own distro... ho ho ho, delightfully devilish, Bezos.

I now have a half done shell script/blogpost on this.

Gonna try and polish this turd and post it somewhere this weekend

I wanted to run a script written using Haskell + Turtle, but Turtle wasn't found, probably because cabal was updated or something… happily I nix-shelled into a GHC+Turtle environment, Nix installed the binaries in twenty seconds and voilà I could run my script.

I think Nix is a better idea than language-specific, compile-only package managers.

Setting up Gitea on NixOS is way more painful than it needs to be.

I'll probably try writing a post about this at some point

.@debian is joining KDE's Advisory Board. This means we will be able to better integrate KDE software with all versions of Debian and their derivatives, we will receive valuable feedback, and we will bring both communities closer together in every way.

Powers out at work again.

I was an employee once. No longer.

I am now a shadow in a dark cube. Every once in a while you can hear the sound of my green switches clicking and clacking throughout the office.

I wish to return to the light

I am now successfully running my own DNS server.

Take that ISP, no more domain data for you

2001: Ha ha Linux could even run on a toaster! j/k
2011: Wow this toaster actually runs Linux. It’s not a joke anymore.
2021: Please pay the ransomware to receive your toast.
