💩 Niklas That sounds very reasonable, thumbs up! :) Are you running the NextCloud server from your home/university and if from home, is it accessible (to you) from the internet?
🦝 Wojciech The NextCloud is at home (therefore, the backup at uni is in a different location, physically, so, bonus points :D). We have a public IP (it was free and I think we didn't even have to ask), so it is accessible from the internet. (The "server" is a budget Ryzen 3 based PC sitting in a wardrobe, because Ryzens are quite power efficient.)
💩 Niklas What's your setup for personal backups? I've just started using restic on an old HDD I found, still looking for a good (cheap) SSD to buy. I think I should use at least two hard drives for backups, maybe even do some fancy RAID... By the way, this post serves as a REMINDER TO DO YOUR BACKUPS!
🦝 Wojciech I keep my important data on my personal NextCloud, which is on a RAID1 (with an SSD cache), and then every week a backup is made using borgbackup, stored on a server at my university, which also has RAID1. The backup is encrypted so I don't worry about other people accessing it.
Miso Today I should receive my thinkpad. Super excited
🦝 Wojciech Ooh, is this one of the new Ryzen 4k based ones?
Sergiusz Not yet but I will check it out! Is it like decentralised Twitter?
🦝 Wojciech yep! I can give you an account on my instance later. Or use one of the public ones. Or set up your own, though keep in mind I do not have enough willpower to assist today lol
🗨️ Fui Nothing fancy. Entry level. But with blue switches! And since the delivery gods decided to shine their graces upon me, I already have it with me. My verdict? Super satisfactory. So, in light of this, I can now reply to your original question: how's my week thus far? I can now confidently, and mechanically, reply: definitely awesome!
🦝 Wojciech I have a keyboard with CherryMX Blues, and I think I am actually faster still at laptop-like keyboards, but it is SO MUCH more satisfying. It's like popping bubble wrap, but it doesn't run out.
🦝 Wojciech Are you guys on Mastodon? I have just set up my instance and I am looking for people to follow mastodon.r23s.eu/@...
Sergiusz Not yet but I will check it out! Is it like decentralised Twitter?
Miso Yes! @m15o@fosstodon.org
⚙ Vdo sounds like a normal month to me
🦝 Wojciech Those 108 hours were in a row :)
Miso Favorite text editor?
🦝 Wojciech I used to use VSCode, but recently as I switched to an old Thinkpad I started using Neovim. With CoC.nvim it supports language servers, which are what makes VSCode so great!
🥱 Abhinav Kumar Switch to bidets ASAP
🦅 Simo What are you working on right now?
🦝 Wojciech Flask app, to make graphs similar to GitHub commit activity graphs, but based on how many ToDo items you do in a day
🎈 Alex Alksne Your environment shapes your thoughts and behaviours - your thoughts and behaviours shape your environment. It's easier to be productive when your environment naturally pushes you towards it - for me Reddit and Facebook are guilty pleasures and I can lose hours to them instead of working on my side projects. I deleted them which anecdotally has helped me focus my attention enough that I have started making more progress on the things that bring me joy in the long term.
🦝 Wojciech It's so easy to get back on them, even when you delete them though. It's hard to do something you yourself can't override.
🦝 Wojciech Time for a 5-6 hour trip to vote (incl the way back). I didn't register to vote where I reside, because I thought I was gonna go home for the weekend, but in the meantime my family got quarantined so I'm just going to my home town to vote and back immediately :(
🦝 Wojciech What are your vacation plans?

☕ David Antoine Yes Debian 10 stable branch... Runs very well on the old ten years old Toshiba laptop I use for the time being. I've had a MacBook Pro, ran ten years like a champ then died. Would like to go back to Apple but I may want to hold off until they release their ARM models... Or I may go for a Dell XPS. I don't know....
🦝 Wojciech All I can say - avoid the new ThinkPads :) they are not how they used to be...
🦝 Wojciech How do I start enjoying being productive instead of forcing myself do do stuff? I like making things, but it's hard for it to compete with easy entertainment like Netflix and social media...
Sergiusz Every evening I think if I did something creative this day and what I will be doing tomorrow. Skateboarding may be creative, code may be creative. Then it just flow somehow
Miso Don't worry too much about being creating. Find something you are passionate about -- i guarantee you'll be doing it way more than going on netflix :)
⌨️ Joseph You could try a dopamine detox. I have never done one, but some folks claim they are a good way to help you enjoy working on activities that are a little harder to get started. YMMV.
🦄 Chip Uni The world is in the middle of the worst pandemic of the last one hundred years. You're not going to be creative when you're worried about your life. Be kind to yourself.
Alex i find just having a few days forced break from all forms of easy entertainment f-5's my brain. no compromises, delete the app if you have to
🛡 Cyrano I'm currently in the same situation too. Though for me, I feel like I'm spreading myself thin by being productive in too much things at once. Work, learning how to make a game, learning morse code, contributing to an open source project, etc...
🌮 Hejo Remember 'why' you work on something. Money alone is a weak motivator (at least for me), but financial freedom, to be able to provide for family and friends, more traveling, and so on, are on the other hand pretty good reasons to work on something. But it depends on the project/ goal you have in mind.

☕ David Antoine The lazy way, MX Linux 19... With just a small tweak to the Compton config file to avoid screen tearing.
🦝 Wojciech Ah, interesting. I didn't know about that one. Is it Debian based?
