I just spent a few hours getting relayd working properly, setting up a gemini server and posting my site to gemini! It's mostly there, but I'm missing pictures. So far, I really like it.
For ease of maintenance, I'm even thinking about JUST using gemini, then just setting up an http proxy for traditional browser users. If I do, it'll be fore tomorrow though, because it's quite late here.
I am a somewhat recent vegan, and an even more recent dumbphone user (which means, no easy app to keep track of what I'm eating). Basically, I am trying to consume less wasteful things all around.
Do you track nutrition, or just get a blood test when you see a doctor? Should I be tracking nutrition specifically? If so, what's the best way to do so efficiently without using an app, or without writing down each meal in detail every time?
My thoughts right now are to have a few go to meals, which I know are relatively good, then just keep fruits/veggies/nuts around and make sure to have a few of each every day.
What do you all do?
Hello! I have been taking a drawing course, and one of the supplies is this spray on fixative for charcoal which is apparently horribly toxic. I don't really want to be spraying it. What is the greenest alternative, store bought or homemade? I noticed one that was made from milk protein, which seems my best bet, but I would prefer a vegan alternative because dairy production is also not super green. Any ideas?
I made/am making a set of tools for ascii art. The first is basically a BSD-games banner clone for my own ascii font.
So, after my previous post to this community I was convinced enough to work towards eating entirely vegan. So far I have been loving it (still not sure what to do with the chicken stock in my freezer though). Now I'm hoping someone has some thoughts on clothes/beddings. I usually shop at thrift stores so I don't give it that much thought. Obviously not buying new will be better for the environment, but when I have to buy new, what is my best bet?
I grew up in michigan, so I have heard a lot about how some synthetic fibers like fleece break down into microplastics and often end up in our water, and polluting the world. On the other hand, things like down and wool aren't really very vegan. Is there a perfect material which is both temporary (i.e. doesn't last forever in the lake), comfortable and vegan?
After playing Celeste, I got to reading about [fantasy consoles](https://paladin-t.github.io/fantasy/). Basically, they are emulators for systems which don't exist. New games can be written with simulated limitations, allowing for the kind of creativity of older consoles.
I am wondering if anyone has used them, and if they have a favorite one?
I made a brief chip tune in Milky Tracker and it'd be fun to share it but I'm not sure where to. I thought of making a MilkyTracker community, but perhaps that's too specific. Do enough people use that, or would a "Chip Tune" be better?
Alternatively, it could be fun to have an amateurmusician or something for people to post their own. Any thoughts?
Inspired by the recent post here comparing glibc and musl, I wondered if anyone had experience comparing BSD Libc to musl or glibc, or any other libc implementations. Is musl the all-around most minimal? Do any others come close?
Hello. I am an omnivore who has stumbled onto a few vegan threads recently. I admire your collective conviction that veganism is simply a less cruel option. I also know that certain products i.e. milk alternatives, etc. are simply much more sustainable. I am looking to be convinced, or given sources/articles/opinions I can read which address the following points:
my ability to afford vegan food which is affordable. I am a college student and meat and animal products at least seems more affordable and accessible. How easy is it to be vegan with limited time and money?
can an individual adopting veganism make a significant environmental impact when compared with vegetarianism, or simply choosing specific options that have less environmental impact(i.e. meat less frequently, vegan milk)?
Thirdly, and more fun: have any of you tried soylent? i'm flirting with the idea of transitioning to a mostly-soylent diet.
I used to generate my website by piecing together html templates and pages. I stopped doing that and started using kcgi.
Today, I switched back to a static site.
It is generated from markdown using just sh, lowdown, awk, cat, etc. The link is to the page on the site about the site (meta) and includes a link to the source that makes the site.
I am using stagit with no option to clone, but I'll get one set up tomorrow and probably tomorrow too I'll post a version with none of my assets or css so the initial git clone doesn't take forever.
My friend and I had this idea to create a wiki where anyone could add a story to a shared universe. The premise is that humans at some point spread out into the galaxy, but faster than light travel never happens. Instead of one government, humanity is fractured. That leads to a vast universe where almost any story can be told. The only rule is, humanity can't be completely united.
Our hope is many people can contribute whatever they can. Some may write speculative fiction, others historical "accounts" of events. Maybe you write a breakdown of the local plantlife on a planet. Either way, we add to the universe and create something together. We are hoping to get a lot of diverse perspectives.
For example, I might write about a society which uses computers to facilitate larger-scale governments where my friend from a political background may write about the laws a planet or system adopts to facilitate some unified government in their region of space. As you can see, the wiki is pretty much bare, but add your story and we'll see where it takes us.
