loving the new purple theme of firefox
I can't believe it's already sunday evening. Weekends go by so fast.
Time flies when you are having fun! Love the Halloween invitation poster.
Has anyone played Tibia? It's an old-school MMORPG I've heard about for a while and today I tried it. It's loads of fun, but feels a little grindy.
I barely have time to play social games :(
It's super grindy. I played it a little, but I was more into Ragnarok.
Yesterday, pizza. Tonight sushi. I don't have the healthiest diet!
My two most favorite foods! I'd say your diet is perfect! :-)
I realize it's been a few days since I last came here. Hope everyone is doing great. :)
I'm doing good. But I have a problem. I need to leave but the cat on my lap is sleep-purring.
Pretty good despite the amount of cheese I've been heaping onto my food this week. I should be banned from buying more but instead I just went shopping and found a bunch of applewood, brie, and spicy stuff on clearance..
Apologies for being late in my reply; yes I am well and I hope you are too. It's busy at work; I'm hoping to do some socially distant socialising with friends soon though.
Happy last day of August all!
And to you as well :)
Absolutely thrilled of my new thinkpad. It's a big P53. Linux noob but I went with fedora. It's very slick right now. The transition from macos isn't so bad! Any tips?
If you are using Gnome desktop (which is the default btw if you haven't changed it), you should download Gnome Tweaks in the Software App. You can tweak all sorts of options in there. Also, nice laptop! That looks like quite a nice machine.
The GNOME dock might be fine, but if you want something more Mac-y, could always install Plank. :) Congrats on your new Thinkpad!
> Any tips? Are you looking for anything specific? I have a highly customized setup myself.
Prepare for Btrfs as default on Fedora 33. Subvolumes and filesystem compression are awesome.
nice! I was so close to not buying a new macbook this year. Was looking at the surface pro, but... inevitably, I bought a macbook instead haha. Can't break out of the mac ecosphere!
Today I should receive my thinkpad. Super excited
What an happy day ! How will you setup it ? Which OS ?
What a thrilling day indeed! With a Thinkpad you have a friend for life. I have the similar questions as @matthieu. What model? New or used? Though I'm chauvinistic enough to ask directly which Linux will you run on it. :)
Which one did you get?
I used almost all the models of the X series in my life
Ooh, is this one of the new Ryzen 4k based ones?
Next film on the list: WarGames
I should rewatch that one!
I apply "the only winning move is not to play" every single day.
Happy Sunday all! I am definitely enjoying this morning's coffee.
I didn't find the time for a morning coffee but the afternoon coffee will be mine! What kind of coffee do you prefer?
Just found out about a lovely "retro web simulator game" called hypnospace. Awesome art and soundrack!
Overheard: "GNU Emacs, which is a sort of hybrid between Windows Notepad, a monolithic-kernel operating system, and the International Space Station."
I think I'm watching you be slowly assimilated by Emacs.
Hahaha, that's hilarious! I've never tried emacs, I've always been on vim (and more recently nvim). Do you think it's worth the investment?
Sounds legit to me.
Favorite text editor?
Anything with vim bindings. I've been a fan of Doom Emacs lately. Neovim is pretty neat as well.
Atom. Brackets is good as well.
Cherry tree. I love to structure my notes a bit weirdly and a hierarchical note app has been the best fit for me so far. Been good for planning programming projects, worldbuilding creative writing things, and I even started using it as a journal when the mood takes me. Nothing too special about cherry tree but I absolutely love it.
Sublime Text. Recently switched back to it after using VSCode and VSCodium for 2 years. I enjoy the snappiness of it. I'm looking at the Lite text editor by rxi, though.
neovim all the way!
VSCode or Jetbrains products but I'm thinking about investing some time on vim/neovim/etc.. Can I learn more keyboard shortcuts ? I don't know !
Emacs, but forever wishing for a better alternative. Keenly waiting for 4coder's next update, which brings support for programming languages other than C++.
I'm a bit torn on that. I like code-oss (open source version of VSCode), but a part of me is always a bit sad for not using something simpler, lighter, and CLI based. Electron based apps are huge memory hogs...
Visual Studio Code!
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!
Another soul chiming in for neovim, sometimes with neovide!
Kakoune. After more than a decade of Vim and some NeoVim. Nothing could ever convince me to leave Vim. But then Kakoune came.
I've been using vscode for a while but not at even 20% of its potential I think.
does Scrivener count?
SublimeText on macOS, vim whenever I'm SSHed into a box.
Not only hot, but lots of mosquitos. Life is hard.
Where are you (roughly) located?
What's your current setup? (Computer, OS?)
on the hardware side : i7-5820k with a Noctua NH-U12P cooler with 16GB of RAM, a GTX 980, 2 SSDs and an HDD I have Manjaro with Gnome on one SSD and Windows 10 (for games) on the other SSD, whats your setup ?
Short answer: A fairly recent Thinkpad running Arch Linux. The details: I use Zsh as my shell with no login manager. I recently started using KDE/Plasma after years of using XFCE as my goto DE. Why? To give it a go, mainly. I'm pretty happy with it for now, mainly for its WM, kwin, which is very versatile and customizable.
Main driver is a fairly new Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition. I threw Ubuntu off board though because I prefer my Void Linux setup. I'm not using any desktop environment. I use DWM, st and tmux. Things either happen in the shell or the browser. Browsers are, with few exceptions like Gimp and darktable, almost the only GUI applications I use. You can find my configs on github.com/nkoehri...
Early 2015 MacBook Pro (13") running Arch Linux.
Desktop is i7-6700k + RX 480 tragically running Windows 10 (games). I wiped Manjaro from it recently because I needed the SSD. My laptop is a 4 year old Lenovo Flex 4 with Arch. I want to upgrade both computers, but I really don't need it.
Desktop: old i5, GTX 2060 Super, NVME SSD running vanilla Arch linux, with i3 and no login manager (like @heufui) Laptop: 2016 MacBook Pro that has somehow never had its keyboard replaced!
ryzen 3600, gtx 1660 super, 16gb ddr4-3600, 1tb nvme. i really enjoy connecting to this machine via parsec from other devices (including a raspberry pi 3), but would love to find an open source replacement that works as well as parsec does.
Second hand ThinkPad (T495s), Ryzen 3700U, running NixOS.
I've been trying Haiku OS today. Has anyone tried?
Years ago! I think I tried it in a VM when they released their first alpha. I remember it was pretty cool, everything that was supposed to work worked fine! Of course, I didn't really have anything to do with it and eventually just deleted the VM. What are your thoughts so far? Do you have a use case in mind?
Never ! What are its advantages ?
Yeah many times, I also tried BeOS back then, and I loved the simplicity and the look of it. I wish there was a bigget community around it to port software to it, it could be a nice alternative to *NIX OSes.
Years ago, yes. I think first when it was still BeOS but I gave it another try later when it became Haiku. I even tried to port some network device drivers over from Linux. Not sure if I made it but I guess not.
I tried out their live USB image back in April. Amazing the progress they've been making over the years. I used ZetaOS way back...
