if i were considering to play a computer game sometime this weekend, but it doesn't run on linux,

what windows should i get and what post-install steps should i take to get as close as possible to something that can run steam and do little else

with bonus points if i can tarball it up and store it away until months from now when i have time to play again

@brennen Removable, replaceable, standard form factor batteries.

I just realized why I like music player daemon and ssh -X and all those other things.
Network transparent means compositional.

Linux running on RISC-V on MNT RKX7! A completely* open computer down to the CPU gateware.

* the only wart is that it needs Vivado's synthesize/place+route tools to build the gateware source for Kintex-7

the calm, quiet serenity of a blanket of unblemished snow over the landscape due to the fact that it's so chilly in here that your computer fans don't even bother to spin up ❤️❄️

each time i convince myself that i can indeed perform some skill (cloud computer, programming language, build a circuit on a breadboard, design and order a laser cut panel or a pcb, soldering) a whole new set of projects and ways to solve problems unfolds which feels great

recently learning a bit about t-slot structural framing and makerbeam

i wonder what i would have built already if i had tuned into it years ago

Going to call programs websites, in retaliation for "apps"

if you end up reluctantly giving money to google for storage because you haven't had time to pry yourself and your photo and video backups out of their clutches,

then they put their fucking corporate logo colors in a little ring around your ever present profile pic

like a non consensual collar

just so there's no question about who owns who

thank you for doing this google, i hate it so much, thank you for keeping me from becoming complacent, i will be rid of you soon

sometimes i daydream of a face-mounted display, like a vr headset but intended for working with text without fatigue, that i can use together with a split ergonomic keyboard, lying in bed with my arms at my sides, totally relaxed

but i bet that's just my brain trying to trick me into accidentally taking a long nap. you don't fool me

everyone: 6 monitors, 37 emacs buffers
me: text-editor is 500 pixels wide

Web dev be like:

"I want to detect if a CSS variable has been changed"
"Sure, here's a very hacky solution with very specific requirements that are a pain to implement because there's no official way to do this"
"I want to detect if a user is sitting in a >3m² room, alone, and hasn't blinked in the last 2 seconds"
"You can use this 1-liner that utilizes the RoomSizeUserPresenceAndEyeBlink API Google pushed into standards to totally not improve their tracking of users"

i want people to stop using the word "content" to mean literally every kind of work or any kind of creative endeavour that was persisted in any kind of medium

And, btw, i realize that we used to have a different word for the same concept: whether it was a song, a newspaper article, a theater play, it was "a piece"

so why does "content" feel so much worse?

finally, sweater weather
finally, hot coffee and steamy oatmeal weather
at least it is in the early morning

(socal has made me weak, it didn't even go below 60°f overnight)
