It has been a busy few weeks, and I'm sick as a freaking dog.
Celebrate the winter season with me, we can all just cough our lungs out!

To everyone who still makes text-based tutorials, thank you!

I'd much rather follow a text tutorial than wait 15+ minutes for a video tutorial to load.

Your work is very much underappreciated. Thanks again! πŸ’œ

Hi Fediverse πŸ‘‹

let me sum up the situation around #switchingsocial

Around September 20th, the original (anonymous) author of switching.social shut down its website and all related Social Media accounts, including mastodon πŸ€”

This info reached me (@tobias ) the next day via my German version @swisode .

As there hasn't been any sign of life since then, I restored the website and created this new account. Right now I'm out of spare time to work on it, but that'll change in a few weeks πŸ™‚

DOOM is merely a continuation in a long western tradition of artistic depictions of hell, but with a distinctly American twist. in Dantes inferno Dante goes to hell to learn about it. in DOOM you go to hell to kick its ass. in this essay i will

Another month has begun, lots of #Linux games ready to be written about.

Just a shout out to all of our supporters for helping push us forward. Thank you everyone!

Okay. I have ridiculed enough. That means I will probably eventually end up using it as my daily driver. That seems to be my standard result. Maybe I should just give in now and install it, and just see where I end up?

In fact, I'm gonna go watch it again on youtube just to give him the watch time. Also, if this tickled your fancy, try his series. He was great in that since he both enjoyed the silliness of the game, and could point out all the errors it made...

He done did the school thing for thingies) Watching him play through the history mode in assassins creed was both , and . If you're interested in ancient greece, give it a watch! Heck, do it on youtube and let him know you liked it, 'cos I for one would love to see more...

@rosnovsky @OneSubtractOne Been there, done that... I found it comforting using Arch after having Ubuntu and Fedora break at things that should have been simple. In #Arch you at least get really good documentation, which matters most if you want to learn the inner workings. And that's why Arch (and probably Manjaro) are great starting points.

This is the PineTime. A companion for your Linux smartphone, and new side-project of ours. More news coming in the future...

(If you have experience with FreeRTOS or mbed, and are interested, please get in touch!)

It's important to note that the most exciting post I have apparently ever made, is in regards to sandwiches.
Do with that what you will.

I feel like is a very serious, very place. Like, Every post I see all over the place is either complicated stuff, or people fighting and rights violations. So with that in mind, I'd like to mention how much I enjoy . and , maybe... All that stuff.

I wonder if the stuff is how users felt when first started getting popular? I see it everywhere, and I want to be happy that someone is pushing based stuff forward... But all I can think is... Why not just use arch, and not risk the manjaro guys screwing everything up again?

Guys! False alarm! Apparently I can't use through my vpn. I don't know why, but I can live with it.

Okay, so I managed to get on mastodon, I can both get and send mail, and I know IRC should work... But I cannot connect with ANY irc client in . I don't have any idea why? It just sits there trying to connect even if I force it to use just the defaults. I can connect on everything else? So I'm pretty sure it's emacs exclusive. Wonder what it's doing differently...
