Re: show us your iron

Toshiba T1910, probably from 1994. Damned nice keyboard and display. The laptop has been used for programming pacemakers in a hospital. We rescued it for 1 Euro.

Re: Lightweight Linux distros

thanks for the link. i never really thought #! was lightweight, maybe design wise it looked light, but in terms of memory usage it was as heavy as the default distribution it ran on. I'd probably take Arch as a lightweight base (by default it is). An OOTB solution other than my BBQ roast would be An...

Re: Mastodon

Thing is I never used Twitter and never understood the concept of it, at least not for my personal use. Cool, and I always thought I'm the only person in the world who has no idea what 'twitter' is about - seriously :) Just wanted to make Manu happy, so there I am. At least there's an emacs fronten...

Re: Openbox

^ cool! What if you check like

Code: Select all

 [ -e /run/openrc/started ]

Re: machinebacon

^ ah well, it's getting better and better, of course there are still some rough edges, eg. some processes create zombie buffers, or it's a bit PITA to switch buffers when helm is involved, but else it's really not that bad. OTOH, it's nothing that a tiling WM wouldn't be able to do ;)

Re: machinebacon

^ thanks guys. Totally fell in love with exwm . If you want to build it from ELPA, get xelb and exwm (optionally" exwm-x). For convenience, also grab dmenu from there (it's assigned to M-d and is even more clever than suckless' dmenu, because it knows when to open terminal apps in a terminal). In ~/...

Re: chromium won't allow extensions

on chrome (so, the real thing) it all works well, even in Canary.
