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.

files does though

lol. some people don’t interact enough with society so they have nothing better to do on a friday night i guess

i may be in the minority, but i like leaving them up and manually marking them complete. I use it as a little reminder that i want to respond to a comment

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…

To clarify, by foss you mean made with foss tools, shared with a foss license, or both?

  1. Humans usually put ties at the base of the neck, not the top. why should brontasaurus be different

mitochondiria: the warp nacell of the cell

would have been funny to use a gratis font for the topside and a free font for the bottom

this seems like a fun tool, but the name seems quite ironic. http://harmful.cat-v.org/cat-v/ describes how rob pike gave a talk on how cat had grown beyond it’s use case so it’s funny to see a tool named after cat which has given up altogether on concatenating files and instead only extends the behavior he considered harmful

The only thing i can think of would be subscribing to all the communities you’d like to see, but i too would like the option to selectively not get certain communities in my, but still get new ones, etc.

owners of capital: his only mistake was feeling guilt. if he were truly generous, he would never have helped that kid. how will the kid learn now?

so, maybe the title is a bit of a misnomer “reasons you should write in vanilla-CSS” might be better. These are cool reasons not to use a framework, but not great reasons to not still try to use CSS sparingly


Not pictured because DWM but, my wallpaper is:

This isn’t really an advanced spell checker, but I actually kind of like using spell. Especially if you want to maintain your own dictionary to add jargon and slang. That being said, I don’t spellcheck all that often so maybe if you use it a lot it becomes inconvenient (?). Also, I know if you use vim you can :set spell

Anyone do emulator development?

If so, worth adding a dedicated community?..

Aqwhat (ascii art)

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. …

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 stor…



Fantasy Consoles

After playing Celeste, I got to reading about fantasy consoles. 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 ha…


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 so…

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…

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. …

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 a…

This is probably quite similar to my last post, but I have fine tuned it since then. I.E. Changed the terminal background color, removed the Pager text, and switched back to a digital clock because analog takes too long.

keyboard resets to US when exiting X

I use OpenBSD on my thinkpad t430, so I don’t often exit X. That being said, when I do close X and re-enter it my keyboard is reset to US encoding. I have a finnish keyboad and after boot, it works fine. I have grepped xenodm’s configuratiuon but I don’t see “ws” or “US” anywhere. Does X maybe set a…
