So about a month ago I installed OpenBSD 7.0 on a spare Thinkpad X230. I played around with a bunch of desktop things but eventually settled on dwm, a piece of art I used to refer to as "the arrogant wm" because somewhere in the source it says "since it's configured in the C code, it keeps the newbs from asking stupid questions" if I recall correctly. Anyway, I've come to really like this combo of OpenBSD, dwm, st, slstatus, and Firefox. After a while it works surprisingly well.
A US senator makes $174,000 a year. Let's say they work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That's an hourly rate of $19.86 if you can believe it. At $7.25/hour (the federal minimum wage) a senator would make $63,510/year instead. Let them have that I say! Oh, and no free healthcare anymore, pay up fools! Alright, I feel better now.
I enjoyed reading this. Maybe you will too? https://berthub.eu/articles/posts/reverse-engineering-source-code-of-the-biontech-pfizer-vaccine/
Alright, it's getting a little out of control now. I've learned enough RISC-V and PA-RISC in a few hours to make things happen. What next? :-D https://git.sr.ht/~phf/hello-again
And for no reason whatsoever I now have to admit that people who write raytracers in bootblocks scare the heck out of me.
I am down to 260 bytes. Not sure what's left aside from breaking ELF rules...
Actually, that's a pretty nice font. Trying it out for a few days of hacking C code. The curly braces are... Cute? :-D https://www.ibm.com/plex/
Just found this again by accident. There's a lesson or three in there somewhere. http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/busybox/2010-December/074114.html
Alright, I have to go on the record now: Audience permissions are stupid on Mastodon. Well, alternatively, call me stupid, that's fine too. I just think they should "default" to the last permission you used on that thread, until you change the permissions/visibility again. The way it is, I constantly write posts that only 3 people see when I intended for them to be "as visible" as the last reply.
I'll have to find myself a "musical mastodon" instance for posts like this one. https://soundcloud.com/innervisions/united-we-stand-1
I like old games and old computers. I dig free software and free culture. And I believe that people, not organizations, have inalienable rights.
