sentient_loom,

Right, self-described "climate protestors" aren't necessarily helping the environment.

sentient_loom,

We are all doing better than the "glue yourself to things" people because they're moving things backwards, turning people against climate action, distracting from climate issues.

sentient_loom,

So you're running kbin.pithyphrase.net from your home pc?

sentient_loom,

Do you use unmanaged hosting?

sentient_loom,

So you install your own server (apache or nginx or whatever) and also run your own postgresql from the same unmanaged space? And the server software serves both the php app and the database?

Thanks for answering my questions. I've always used managed hosting but it's becoming too limiting and I'm seeking to expand my options.

sentient_loom,

Only a brand would think in terms of favorite brands.

sentient_loom,

Why would it be an n-turn? The n shape suggests you back up before turning. The capital U asserts that you simply turn. That's how I've always done it.

sentient_loom,

Today in Montreal it was beautiful and blue and fresh. I hope it stays that way. I want to keep my lungs and our forests.

sentient_loom,

Did spez create reddit or did they just hire him?

sentient_loom,

Are Swartz and Ohanian still around? Are they all trying to cash in?

I can understand wanting to get retirement money out of your long-term project, but we're not obliged to stick around and assist in the degradation of a once-great platform.

sentient_loom,

Whoa, I didnt know that guy was involved with reddit. He's the anti-spez.

sentient_loom,

Did they migrate their posts? Or is that impossible?

sentient_loom,

Man this defediverse stuff gets tiring

I never heard of gentoo studio. Im looking into it now and it looks like a decent possible alternative.

I want to run a DAW like Reaper, with multiple midi tracks playing through vst instruments. I had no problem doing that on windows 7 with my 4th gen i7 processor and 16GB of RAM, so my 8th gen processor should be able to handle it. But it's a "power saving" processor that actually benchmarks very close to my old 4th gen, so I do want to keep the OS and desktop environment light.

Edit:
I see gentoo studio isnt listed on distrowatch, but you can get it theough his site.

I am a web dev, does that count? I haven't done much scripting as part of running an os. What kind of situations in nix require a dev's touch?

Either way Im looking it up. Sounds interesting.

Edit:
Okay, I see now. NixOS is the OS but this software is a git repo that wouldn't make much sense to non-devs.

sentient_loom, (edited )

I'll look it up, thanks.

Edit:
Zorin pro actually looks interesting. I wonder if they do the kind of system configurations that musnix and ubuntu studio do.

sentient_loom,

Yeah I had to abandon some of my favorite VSTs when I moved to Linux. I should just get a new PC with windows... But not this year.

sentient_loom,

I think they're supposed to be lemmies, not rats

sentient_loom,

I should try that. Skip the hours of grinding. It always felt like cheating, but it would let you really focus on the design.

sentient_loom,

They have sales all the time, but you can also just wait 2 years and get it cheaper on eBay
