@tkk13909 @YamiYuki Because people like to do that, it gives them some sense of power that they really don't possess. I wouldn't care that much about it if I were you.

Not sure what it's going to take for folks to stop using Windows. Maybe when the new SS shows up at their house?

I guess all of the public confusion that @BrodieOnLinux went through, they took it to heart. :D

What?

I don't even know what to say right now.

When did I miss this? What is it? Has this been going on, or is it new? I'm so confused.

So in the last few hours I've learned pretty much that I'm too dumb for docker.

Also learned that there are a ton of old ass tuts out there that don't work. And that led to learning how to reset docker containers, which is still something I apparently can't do.

Shoulda used the snap.

@thelinuxcast Best advice I got when I was beating my head again Docker a number of years ago ... walk away. Come back to it fresh when your frustration levels go down. :)

I'm going to have to intersperse some other books with the Mistborn trilogy. I'm 5 hours in and only 200 pages into the 2500 page trilogy. I don't think I'll ever buy a trilogy all in one book again. It is just too long. Especially Sanderson who can't seem to write anything small.

I should have made this decision earlier today since I had a hold come in from Libby, but I already delayed it.

@thelinuxcast Yeah, on my first read through Steven Erikson's Malazan book of the fallen, I did it paperback to paperback. My reread was after I'd donated those paper backs. So I bought the collected edition from Amazon. it's 10 books totaling 11k pages. Of course the giant ebook was split into separate books but I do think knowing it's an 11k page story would give you an aneurysm.

the only US citizens Americans should be taking protesting cues from are PUERTORRIQUEÑOS.

why? Puerto Rico is bound, muzzled & knee-capped by the USA constitution YET our people took to the streets, IN THE ISLAND & WORLDWIDE, and changed the government in 12 days of non-stop protests.

PROTESTS WORK.

so much so, USA media wants you to forget those 12 days of protests when writing of the global unrests of 2019.

WE ARE MORE AND WE HAVE NO FEAR;
somos más y no tenemos miedo.

another sea of humanity on el casco de San Juan, in front of our capitol hill, our Congreso.
Bad Bunny, members of Calle 13 including René Pérez (in the blue cap), who called for the protests; and Ricky Martín standing next to him.
a show of protests signs from those 12 days, from left to right: 1. FUERA POLICÍA; police get out the governor was infamous for his abuse of power and treating police as his private army 2. ABAJO EL PATRIARCADO; down with patriarchy protests had been happening for ages en La Isla but what ignited the 12 days of rage were leaks of chatlogs where Roselló & his cronies slandered and slurred many activists and at one point even joked about throwing some of them in jail so they could get raped. 3. BLACK & WHITE PUERTO RICAN FLAG is both our distress flag and the symbol of the independence national movement that was led by Don Pedro Albizu Campos and which was a straight offshoot of our abolitionist movement (and hence, led by Afroboricuas). 4. SOMOS MÁS Y NO TENEMOS MIEDO we are more and we have no fear.

@blogdiva I have a question based on dates. Were these "Democrats" the same that left the Democratic party and joined the GOP, the folks that were labeled the Dixiecrats? This switch happened in the 1960s or are we ignoring the historical shake up of the two parties? I'm curious.

bitterseeds,
@bitterseeds@fosstodon.org avatar

@blogdiva Oh. I'm aware of all of that. But I asked a specific question as I was curious. You didn't answer it. It is what it is I guess.

Hey everyone!

I'm working on a video to see what the Linux community (or at least people who follow me) actually use.

So, I created a little form, hosted on my Nextcloud (hopefully it's up to the task...)

It's only up for 2 days, so don't hesitate to share it around, it will help me "touch grass" and see if my preconceived notions are confirmed, or invalidated!

https://nextcloud.thelinuxexp.com/index.php/apps/forms/s/XQRzMrs8QTtCjDfSyP4koA9o

Of course, it's all anonymous, no personal data, it's just for the purposes of creating the video.

bitterseeds,
@bitterseeds@fosstodon.org avatar

@thelinuxEXP You should probably take it down since it's expired. Then folks won't answer questions only for it not to be submitted. After all, we don't know when it started and folks are sharing it still. :(

@possiblylinux127 @wisha And how would sandboxing a malicious script inside a theme that is supposed to change the look of your desktop work? They installed and ran something that rm'd their home directory. I'm honestly curious how you'd solve this.

bitterseeds,
@bitterseeds@fosstodon.org avatar

@possiblylinux127 I was asking how you’d run something that modded the whole UI … sandboxed.

IF only Hyprland wouldn't freeze on me, I think I'd be very happy to stay with it. As is, it continues to freeze when I wake the computer up from sleep. Bug report filed, but until it is fixed, I'm once again on the lookout for another WM.

So far tonight I've tried river (got it installed, but wouldn't load), bspwm (maybe, but I don't care for the way it does workspaces), DWM (my build is broken so I'll need to start over), and then went back to hyprland.

But not a single USB C on the back.

@thelinuxcast Well, that works. I would make sure the speeds on the one port you have are good enough. I think that the header is USB-2.0 speeds.

So I asked for good Fantasy novels with a side of romance (because I like romance in my fantasy, so sue me), and someone told me that Stephen King is the best Romance writer.

This made me laugh out loud. Stephen King is not a romance writer. Do some of his books have romance? Sure. But just lol. Also man can't write an ending to save his life. Still read every book he's ever written though because he's still a good writer.

bitterseeds,
@bitterseeds@fosstodon.org avatar

@thelinuxcast You ever read "Malazan: Book of the Fallen" by Steven Erikson? It's damn good and 11k pages in total ... it has "romance" ... but not sure if it fits what your asking for. Anyway, damn good series.

Okay.

@Vivaldi I'm done.

This happens every time there's an update, and sometimes deleting the Cache directories fixes it, sometime it doesn't. Your browser isn't stable.

I'm going back to Firefox. Sad thing is now I've lost over 100 tabs.

@thelinuxcast @JamesMowery FYI. Font handling on Floorp is broken. If you had a thought to use it. I switched back to mainline FF yesterday after floorping for a week.

Dear Modern Authors:

For the love of FUCK please tell me an entire story in a single book. Stop with this ending everything unfinished and unraveled, and on a cliffhanger, with no resolution or satisfaction.

Edging is fun in the bedroom, not in book series.

Tell me a goddamn story. A whole story. Start, middle AND FUCKING ENDING.

Write a good story and I'll read your second book. You don't have to trick me.

@MsHearthWitch I once started a firestorm on Twitter (before it's enshitification) about how I will only buy a series when all parts are out and available. I've felt burned by a lot of series that take years and in some cases 3 damn decades to arrive.

Screen capture on Wayland is still shit.

bitterseeds,
@bitterseeds@fosstodon.org avatar

@thelinuxcast @iantriggs I noticed that weird stuff like this simply went away when I compiled mesa from src. I also noticed my RX7800XT running 3c to 7c cooler after this.

Could it be that SuSE's package has had the same level of care that Manjaro's has had which is to say half-hearted at best?

I dunno. But since getting the AMD card and switching to 100% Wayland, I've been reasonably happy with most things and haven't had show stoppers.

@dimillian People generally freak out about telemetry when it's mentioned. They'd swallow their tongues if they only knew how many iOS apps use anonymous telemetry. Dude, just make it opt-out/in so the crazies go away. Developing in the dark is frustrating AF. 🤘

None of us actually enjoy having to call out tech conferences for still in our year 2024 having zero speakers who aren’t white men. Getting lots of comment abuse, legal threats, guilt trips, and being known for that instead of our jobs isn’t like great or fun, actually.

@hacks4pancakes Just CIS white men? So varieties of Asian men are OK? Just not white guys? And how do you know they are CIS? SMFH.

@IceCubesApp Question, why does IceCubes now jump to the top of the home timeline instead of starting where I left off while showing me a bubble with the amount of posts above where I am currently in the Home timeline? Did I miss something?

bitterseeds,
@bitterseeds@fosstodon.org avatar

@IceCubesApp it was enabled, I disabled it a few minutes ago. Is that why it was automatically taking me to the newest post? If so, I’ll leave it off. 😀
