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.
WOW - America! Are you ready for this?
Ready for...? Should I be worried?
America has been waiting for 4 long years like waiting at dentist to be done with that drill.
no i'm not sure. i don't trust the Dems, but i don't like the Pres.
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.
Just finished cleaning the bathroom. The stove really needs a good cleaning but I really don't feel like doing it right now...
After working all week, you deserve some free time to relax.
Congrats, the tough jobs deserve a little reward.
I confess I like when my stove is clean. I feel an aesthetic joy in having it all shiny and beautiful. It's the kitchen's equivalent of having a diploma hung on the wall. But that also means the stove loses some of its usefulness, as now I worry I'll dirty it while cooking. So now I pragmatically leave it dirty, so long as its efficacy is not compromised. There's a beauty in that too, as the goo tells something about the its past trials and achievements.
What are you guys currently working on? I have created a little Netflix clone recently(JS only): studflix.de . Also i was getting into flutter recently :)
Working on our initial MVP for policedap.org :) I'm also still needing to setup metareply.net for this site...
that netflix clone looks amazing! What tech did you use? I spend most of my free time creating midnight.pub - it's a virtual... pub :)
working on a little tool that will compare you n your friends' steam libraries and show you games you have in common. + give you filter options. idea born out of need. :)
Is that a YouTube curated list? I like it! Also, I read about flutter sometime ago. Really interesting stuff. But what I really can't wait to see is Blazor getting the tools it need and more adoption in the future.
I'm looking to build a web app to deploy a tiny python script I wrote. I have nearly 0 experience with web dev. At the moment I would like to implement it without using a framework like flask or django. I've heard of the websockets / asyncio packages, does anyone have references to guides or tutorials on this subject?
Can you be a bit more specific? Do you want to have a web interface where the script gets ran on the server after the user clicks a button or submits a form, or do you want to make the script run in a browser?
You could look into python anywhere, their free tier should let you run a short script once a day. They also support a very easy integration with flask. I'd recommend doing one of their tutorials if you're interested.
The forecast states that the temperature won't drop below 20 degrees Celsius at 23:00 for the next few nights in London. What hell is this?!
Hey fellow Londoneer! More concerned about the 36c during the day!
The tories.
Not only hot, but lots of mosquitos. Life is hard.
Finished all work on time. I'll spend my weekend to read Stephen Wolfram's new book and prepare some course material to teach a young girl how to start programming.
A well deserved family time ahead, then! Enjoy it fully. Those are the moments truly worthy of being lived.
Out of curiosity, are you reading "A Project to Find the Fundamental Theory of Physics"? I'd love to hear a physicist's take on that whole endeavor. Is it legit? I read the blog post when he announced it but really didn't understand much.
this is a really great social network. love the minimalism. i might even enjoy it more than Mastodon... :thinking: now if only there were more people.
There's plenty of great people here unlike some other places.
What are your tricks of 'getting things done' ? For me washing the dishes and 7 minutes workout.
If I'm doing the dishes willingly, I know I'm deep into procrastinating.
Although I fail to do it so often, i have a little "30 minute rule" where if something takes less than half an hour to do - i have to do it instantly. Laying in bed and remember you haven't sorted your laundry out? save yourself the anxiety about procrastination and get it over and done with.
A 12 minute timer. I look at a task (folding laundry, doing dishes, etc) and tell myself I only have to do it for 12 minutes. It's not even a full quarter hour, so I can add in some bonus time if the timer beeps and I only need a couple minutes to finish up. Would you say more about your 7 minute workout?
To get things done, just do not think about it: tiffanymatthe.com/...
I hope none of you are experiencing the joys of moving during a pandemic. As you might expect, it's even worse than the sum of its parts.
Ouch. If moving is in itself a logistical nightmare, during a pandemic it must be way worse.
I'm glad I'm not! I can only imagine how difficult it is moving during this time. Yet, a lot of people I follow on social media seem be doing it.
Oh no! I'm sure it will be worth it in the end, right?
Hello to this new week from sunny Berlin. I just made coffee and I think the day can now finally start. Yes it is 11am here. I'm really not a morning person.
In my house, morning ends at 2pm. Besides, nothing good ever happens before the evening.
Good morning to you! Now I'm about to make some coffee myself
Hello everyone! Another week starting here, I'm gonna do remote work this week, the car need some repairs

Just got myself new headphones.

txti looks neat but it doesn't like what I have to say: txti.es/codeartist (getting an error page)
it looks like a very interesting idea! Basically you can create fast-loading static pages, right?
hey, check out rwtxt.com. i used to use it as a blog and it was great. EDIT: url here: rwtxt.com
