I like how there was overlap. Apparently some people said “yes” and also “What is wrong with you”

I like it! By the way, when I go to your hello-gemini page, looks like the link back to the main page is broken. It links to gemspace.cedricbonhomme.org/posts/gemspace.cedricbonhomme.org and fails

Hot damn! I don’t know the specific patches, but according to the email (tl:dr;) a team at University of Minnesota was submitting patches they knew were broken to “test” how the kernel team responded. They had apparently published papers on it.

That makes sense! I’m already having nutritional yeast regularly, and just started drinking soy milk because it seems fairly protein/nutrient dense. I was actually thinking I’d prefer go to meals because I don’t get bored of individual meals, but rather get bored of having to think of and make different meals. Measuring a bunch at one time, then not thinking about food for a few weeks is the dream lol.

Personal Site on gemini
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. gemini://yksinotso.org

That makes sense! I have been eating lots of nutritional yeast, but have been a little worried about my omega-3s. Do you just eat chia seeds plain?

Hey, thanks! I made it. Want one for you?

Do you track nutrition? If so, how?
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?

I just saw a bunch of anti “cancel culture” and other alt-right talking points on the front page. I usually assume when I see a hard free speech description that it’s very right.

From the description, it’s like an alt-right peer-tube, right?

I love playing Super Tux Kart. Racing with my friends is awesome, and I’m personally a huge fan of soccer-mode.

Oh wow. Is that actually not satire?

lol. just to check, you calling google drive a communist service?

godot is not really useable from command line, but if yoi’re looking to make a game it works pretty well and exports to android easily. it’s not lightweight, but it tends to be in package managers so that’s a plus

Frankly, that’s ridiculous and arbitrarily. I don’t believe in inevitable progression, but humans have done a decent job of organizing reasonable structures, despite greater and greater populations. I am no fan of neoliberal capitalism, but i believe it is better than feudalism, and I believe that through cooperation and struggle, we can imagine and implement better worlds.

So, I want to jump in and say that Star Trek is intentionally narcissistic. If you think of it as Science Fiction, I really think it falls short. What I think is a much better perspective is “What could humans be in a post-scarcity world?” Not that it makes the tropes any less annoying, but it does make the episodes that explore that much more meaningful. Star Trek is a critique of humanity, and an imagination of what we could become. It is less about interactions between different intelligences (although some episodes try, and usually fail to be) and more about how humans can interact with themselves.

I really like C.J. Cherryh’s books. So many have interactions between human and “Alien” worlds, and do a really good job of having “Equal/Greater Non-human intelligences” I especially recommend “Foreigner” and “Faded Sun Trilogy”

ok, then that’s true. no text selection in mupdf. At least in Lineage OS though, i just share it to the default print service in files, but i guess idk if that’s possible in android proper.

Environmental Charcoal Fixative?
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?

Not pictured because DWM but, my wallpaper is: ``` xsetroot -bitmap /usr/X11R6/include/X11/bitmaps/xsnow -bg "#101010" -fg "#d0dfb0" ```

Anyone do emulator development?
If so, worth adding a dedicated community?

Ykskii-chars. Ascii art font generator
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. [C header](https://yksinotso.org/Downloads/ykskii_chars.h) [Live example](https://yksinotso.org/cgi-bin/ykskii)

What About Fibers
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?

Fantasy Consoles
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?

Community for MilkyTracker/ChipTunes, or an AmeteurMusic community?
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?

How does musl compare with other Libc implementations?
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?

Veganism and sustainability
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.

A static site generator, with RSS feed included using lowdown, sh, awk, sed and cat.
As promised, my site from before, stripped of assets. Now it is a simple static-site generation template, licensed CC0.

My statically generated site
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.

Creating a completely public-domain shared canon
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.
