@klaatu I've realized what I love the most about open tools.

You and I are about as close to total disagreement about "optimal toolset" as its possible to be on a Linux System. Yet, you having yours and me having mine don't conflict at all.

I can have vim on arch with a package manager and updates and spotify, and you can have emacs on slack with slackbuilds

I am eating shortbread cookies and imagining them with salt and rosemary.

Hey Mastodon, here is a quote that I needed and maybe you did too:

"WRITE IT BADLY. Write it badly, write it badly, write it badly, write it badly. Stop what you’re doing, open a Word document, put a pencil on some paper, just get the idea out of your head. Let it be good later. Write it down now. Otherwise it will die in there."

— Brandon Sanderson on overcoming writer’s block to create a first draft as a professional author

@thaj @x1101
That's just weird. It must be some #i3 specific thing(?) because, surely, otherwise a query against your installed package for obvious strings like {screen,lock,save} would provide hints about what you could remove to make it go away. Or at least, that's what I would think.

@lostnbronx I think you uploaded you "Big Idea" show twice. Because today's "context" episode just plays "big idea" again :(

@lostnbronx I had a thought about something you said recently WRT audio vs reading.

I think your style is an odd case where you're writing it. But you're doing so specifically for it to be heard. So, if I later read, say, Street Candles, and hear you I wouldn't consider that a failure. You breathe life into your stories by recording them. Give them an extra special texture.

@lostnbronx I am serious:
You need to take a transcript of "A thousand ways to fail", make it a one man show, and perform it on stage.

That was 47 minutes of pure.

Jonathan Nadeau, the FOSS accessibility guru we all know and love, has got an amazing 24 campaign going on, for -- get this -- a metal album!


Ok fediverse, I'm playing with an ... odd little project. I have a movie ripped to mp4, I also have this movie in black and white. I'd like to take part of one seen from the color version and overlay it in the black and white. Suggestions for good Linux tools for this?

The gunboat "Dame Minnie" is falling apart at the seams. Bad pay, an idiot captain, and rapidly-failing equipment. Things can't get worse. Right?

Audio quality is due to the Masto file size limit. Listen/download to a better version (still free) on my site:

we basically live in a cyberpunk dystopia but without all the cool shit

@sil I didn't know you were over here on Mastadon too! Awesome!

@klaatu I'm real sad to say I won't be joining your dungeon crawl tonight. I'd planned on it and been excited for it, but I'm not feeling the best. I need to crawl into a hole and pull it in after me for a while.

Still, THANK YOU FOR DOING THIS. So many of us have said "We need more gaming groups in our community" and you're DOING it.
