i use pretty lightweight tools. dwm and st. i don’t change the configs much, and have been trying to trandfew from firefox to surf. no more 10 tab browsing


Awesome. If it helps, i’m using the default browser on LineageOS.


thanks! i appreciate all these links. i am bookmarking this thread and coming back when i have more free time to look into these. gb-studio looks pretty cool. gameboy was my first video game platform and maybe always my favorite


Hey, looks fun! I subscribed to rss, but only by guessing the url. when i tapped the feed link, all i got was “rss.png.” not sure if it’s my browser, but maybe worth testing on your end


i guess the question is whether people are willing to give up the extra functionality for that simplicity, or whether simplicity in this case just means “abstract away what the computer actually does” because, it’s easy enough to just use gnome out of the box but the options and configurations exist because people want them and shared libraries exist because people want a lot of big programs on their system.


no, silly. lockdown to prevent plagues is great and brave. locking down to prevent plagues is what is authoritarian.


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. …


that is so cool. i will definitely keep my eyes on it. Is it all closed source though?


Have you seen ed! man ed


I can’t speak for this sub, but i think a lot of people have been moving from reddit and creating similar communities here to break their dependance on the proprietary reddit platform


i recommend love2d and some tutorials there. i think it’s a great way to learn because, it’s pretty easy to get going, and with simple game-dev you can get immediate visual feedback



Short read and definitely worth my time.


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…



Glad to see that the posts are automatically added to my RSS feed too! Good work


I guess perhaps the difference is one of priorities. In my mind the power of UNIX is the power of the user to control their system, or in multi-user systems the power of the admin to control the system they manage. I don’t have a problem with /etc being writeable and I think configuration should take place in /etc. If I want to set doas permissions, or define who can access my system I should do that from /etc.


No problem! I’m just passing it along. I tought I would add that I use a proportional font on my website too and put my ascii art in '<pre><code>` tags. Then I just have my css unobtrusively switch:

pre {
        font-family: monospace;
        white-space: pre;
}

Without borders, it works well inline, and the font change isn’t super obnoxious when it’s just ascii art.


Follow up question. I’m not a hardware person. How hard would it be to go in the other direction. Make a hardware device that runs like the fantasy console instead of an emulator that runs like the device?


You’re right that it isn’t what is typically done, but my point was that if you really wanted your disk to encrypt and unencrypt on login/logout it shouldn’t be /that/ hard to just add a hook to a login service. You needn’t rework the idea of a home directory, and create yet another configuration paradigm to do it. If that were all he were proposing, I’d be totally onboard.


The hot-plug home directory does seem sort of cool, but again that would take near universal adoption for it to be very useful, and you can already set up your personal computers to do that without a new standard. unencrypting with an external device is already possible and easy, but requires people have the external device, and even if the linux OS you use adopts the hot-pluggable home, the public library won’t, nor will the computer lab at your school. at some point, you may be better off with a live-USB os.


Isn’t this article about a new proposed standard for linux condifigurations and home directories?


The tic-80 looks pretty cool. And it’s MIT licensed, so I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on that



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…



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…


Gamedev Coop

Hello, over on r/socialistprogrammers there has been a lot of talks of coops lately. Myself and at least one other person have been courting the idea of starting a gamedev coop with socialist ideals. We are still in the planning phase, and if you’d like to be involved, send us an IRC message at irc…

IRC Log Website

I set up an IRC server and logged it with ZNC. I wrote this little KCGI tool to read the plaintext logs and display them a little more nicely. Just thought I’d share, in case anyone else has been keeping ugly logs…
