Oh, PKD; my favorite author. Such a legend foreseeing so damn much accurately too.

Nemo File Manager. Hands down the best. Full of all the essential features and no fluff.

Forked back from the original Nautilus when it was usable, I couldn’t use whatever Gnome nautilus calls itself now.

Forks can be very healthy for a project, looking at you Audacity.

take your spam elsewhere fuckface!

I think the barrier to entry is part of the fun. Like in the old days when we heard about the ‘world wide web’, it was new and exciting. For me Gemini replicates that youthful experience.

Lol, a classic of quirky 90’s interfaces.

Here’s a couple of screenshots of it. Check out those mouse skills…

Puffing Billy - some nostalgia to start us off.
So, just to start us off, I have very fond memories of riding on Puffing Billy in the very early 80's several times. I recall my grandpa seeing me off at the station at Belgrave and greeting me under bridges all the way to Emerald, waving to let me know he was there. Fond memories. Who else has memories of hanging out the windows of Puffing Billy? These days worksafe would like a word.....

Welcome All!
Hello All, Hope this Lemmy community takes off. I enjoy discussing all things Australia, but other ones on here seem to be carbon copies of that on reddit. I would like to avoid that by communicating with other Aussies rather than copy/pasting trending news articles. The less news the better.

I agree. My laptop battery lasts so much longer without having to fire up the web browser. I barley look at all the rubbish sites I used to check; not out of need but by habit.

After visiting some of those sites, it was visually like being hit in the face with a brick, in comparison to Gemini.

Lets hope more people find a place for Gemini in their lives, from personal experience I’m far less stressed and actually enjoy browsing other peoples Gems.

Thank you for the comments on my capsule, it’s nice to know I’m not yelling into the void.

I use nano in xfce4-terminal. But I have that open within a screen type of program called byobu. In the other tabs I have a sshfs opened to my flounder account.

I run it through a spell check using hunspell, also on the terminal, what can I say, I really enjoy the terminal.

I have a write up on my capsule if anyone is interested, covers all of the above.


Ha, cool. I found my own post on here.

Hopefully that post on reddit will motivate others to contribute to Gemini, I’m loving it so much.
