New blog post!

I built a portable Meshtastic node, powered with 18650 batteries. It's light enough to carry in a backpack, and will run for a few days.

And finally, finally I made contact over the mesh network!

Uraael, to linux

I've had a very enjoyable conversation this morning about Linux, and specifically Linux Gaming. From my perspective this is now absolutely on par with the Windows gaming experience but of course that opinion isn't universal.

I apparently did enough to convince the chap I was talking to to give it a try, prompting me to have an immediate crisis of confidence that someone was actually listening to me on the internet and omg what if I've over-sold it?!? 🤣 I run a Gaming Distro: it's entirely possible I've lucked into this experience with my choice to run it because of things the distro maintainers have set up for me.

But I have faith in Proton. Proton / a.k.a Steam Play is a genuine Miracle for Linux.

When Valve launched Proton in [stresses memory] 2018? 17? it suddenly and gloriously catapulted Linux from an awkward, arcane and painful third place in terms of Personal Computer platform game compatibility all the way up to parity with Windows. ProtonDB now lists 20'000+ previously Windows-only games that at least one person has reported works for them on Linux (Many other games could work that just don't have reports yet). ProtonDb, a volunteer-run website, is also fabulous as it grades compatibility. Platinum for Works out of the Box, Gold for Works with Tweaks/Tinkering, Silver for works but with larger issues, Bronze for Doesn't work.

The Steam Deck (which runs on Steam OS, a Linux distribution) couldn't have launched without proton. The Deck is also having a hugely positive effect on Linux Gaming.

You want proof of how good the situation is? Here's a WINDOWS-FOCUSED website extolling Proton's virtues.

Top Tip: if default Proton doesn't work you have two options in Steam: the Experimental version, basically the upstream beta, or there's the 'Glorious Eggroll' [GE] version, created by a single person, that includes fixes for some games that Valve haven't officially included.

If yon chap has anything near the wonderful time I've had playing games from my Steam and GOG libraries on Linux this last year, I'm sure he'll be fine and I'll have avoided a reputation for being all mouth and no trousers. 🙂

@jynersolives I hear parachutes for everyone are a logistical nightmare anyway due to the resulting search area if ever everyone on board would deploy one oO

Okay, so when I was very little, I thought that the PowerPoint slideshow icon in earlier Windows versions was a champagne glass.

Bear in mind, I had never been to a presentation before, but it made sense in my head that "oh, if people go see a presentation, they will be drinking champagne".

🆕 blog! “Use CSS to boost the font size of emoji with no extra markup”

I want to make emoji bigger than the text that surrounds them. At my age and eyesight, it can be difficult to tell the difference between 😃, 😄, and 😊 when they are as small as the text. Is there a way to use CSS to increase the font size of specific characters without having […]

Finished the first series and I'm blown away. Been a while that some show lived up to the hype.

And to all the lore nitpickers out there: Keep it down and civil. Please do not again get a show cancelled because some TV adaption didn't resonante with your ideas how things should have been.

This is a great adaptation and I wish to see more!

I want to use any Mastodon instance as an OAuth provider - looks like it might be possible according to https://auth0.com/docs/connections/social/oauth2
