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... - This is freaking fascinating. Many a True nerd is a fantastic let's player, and also a (Is that the term? 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...

Okay... I can't lie. I'm enjoying playing with emacs. I feel slightly dirty though. I added evil mode, so I can basically vim in emacs but you can just stay in emacs for EVERYTHING. Email is included, IRC is included, Mastodon is available (That's where I am now) Matrix is apparently in here as well... I'm generally an adherent of the do one thing and do it right policy, but this is fun...

Holy Carp. There's an tiling window manager... Do I want to use , or do I want to use a text editor as my window manager?
The answer is of course, Both. Yay !

I'm still pissed about the destruction of the Library of Alexandria.

So, I realize this is an heavy collective... I've never really used emacs. I like . Mostly because it's what I've used, and it works... Is there a good reason to try and switch? I mean. I can get a color scheme in either, and we all know the only thing that really matters is what color your syntaxing is...

Dear community, after quite a bit of work, now has a darkmode on the website thanks to the ongoing efforts of our valued team member Dawid Potocki.

To test it out, just go to and click the theme button in the top left corner :)

I don't have anything exciting to say, but I feel like I should just into the occasionally. Just so it knows I'm here.

I realize the idea is anathema, but does anyone know how easy it is to use the proprietary drivers for on ? I'm on right now, thinking about trying something new... is another option, but I've played with that before, so I figured maybe go all in on something crazy...

So. I stole someone else's install script for arch. I don't think anyone really NEEDS an install script, but it was a fun project setting it up for my particular system. Then, for the heck of it, I stole someone ELSE'S autorice script. For the same reasons honestly, I could do it by hand, but it was fun to mess with it and make it mine.
Now I'm wondering, can I convert the whole thing to other distro's? 'Cos I'd like a void from scratch style thing here...
