YubiKey and NitroKey both do everything I need in terms of capabilities. I ended up going with YubiKey since, going by anecdotes from some of my co-workers, it survives being put through the washing machine more reliably.

The Tenth Doctor.

Talks a big game about pacifism and then hands out fates worse than death like they were candy.

You could be neurodivergent in some way, which would lead to emotions or other internal experiences simply not shared by most people.

Or have a differing background.

Have you thought of a Magna-Doodle?

  • They’re easy to erase (just pull the lever)
  • About page size (which is good if you want something you can lug around or work with on a desk, but not if you want more than one page of space)
  • They last pretty much forever if you don’t bang them around, and even if you bang them around they still do pretty well.


  • Low resolution
  • Erasing one spot is not well supported

From The DWM page

Because dwm is customized through editing its source code, it’s pointless to make binary packages of it. This keeps its userbase small and elitist. No novices asking stupid questions. There are some distributions that provide binary packages though.

I don’t care for this. Configuration through editing the source code is an engineering decision. I think it’s a bit silly, but reasonable people can disagree.

I’m very much of the opinion that when you stop newbing, you start dying, though, so the air of contempt for newbies really turns me off. There also seems to be a ‘simplicity scold’ tendency where any program that does something they personally don’t find useful is bloated, even if there are lots of use cases where it makes perfect sense. (And in talking to some suckless fans ‘bloat’ seems to include things like localization, which also rubs me the wrong way.)

Some of their stuff is okay as software.

I think I must have misphrased. I was just hoping to be able to add XMPP, blog, IRC username on a network, etc. etc. etc. to the profile instead of JUST matrix.

Either a front-end that works under w3m/lynx/other non-IavaScript browsers OR a nice, keyboard oriented client, whether actually text mode or just with a similar feel.

Instead of the ability to link ones Matrix identity, Service, Identity pairs so you can link matrix, mastoromasskey, blog…

I wouldn’t call myself a pagan since I don’t have explicitly spiritual beliefs, but I like pagan communities, pagan literature, there’s something very appealing in the notion of build-it-yourself mysteries and symbolism as improvisational method of guiding ones own mind and emotions.

My ‘instincts’ run animate, the world feeling alive and filled with presence.

Being neurodivergent in pretty energetic ways, I feel a certain resonance with Odin as a patron of language and overwhelming emotion.

Probably the best thing to do is ask him why he believes what he believes in his own terms, and see what bits he just takes on faith.

Also if you actually want to interact with him, make it clear you dislike racist, homophobic, and transphobic jokes. State plainly why they’re hurtful and explain the falsehoods behind them. A calm, empathy-to-empathy discussion has been shown to make people less bigoted.
