I use kakoune for everything and love it. It’s really fast and minimal, but has plugin support just like vim. I have it as default editor and I have it open in my default terminal when I click on text files.


I’d like to write my motivations but I’d just obsess over it for hours, so I’m only listing the items.

Show:

  • Black Sails
  • The Expanse
  • All 4 (or was it 5?) seasons of Game of Thrones

Books:

  • The Expanse
  • Blindsight
  • Remembrance of Earth’s Past (aka Three Body Problem)
  • Children of Ruin

Films:

  • Lord of the Rings

There are others I enjoy despite (or regardless of) their quality, for reasons such as nostalgia, certain characters or unique atmosphere. They’re too subjective to be of much interest to anyone else though, probably.


I frequently produce such “lines” in […] Rust with the list/iterator operations.

Use method chaining and rustfmt.


It’s not a replacement for monitors just yet, but it exists: https://github.com/SimulaVR/Simula


That website is literally impossible to use. Can someone copy the article here?

It’s impressive indeed! I’ve tried making similar clips but always give up after failing a dozen times

Next week should include a rather lengthy write-up on what went into my work on physics.

This week, we see an amazing video of the new glider changes. Work is being done with audio, UX/UI, economics, maps, and lots more. …

May I suggest using Guix or Nix to package games? I wrote a little post on mastodon a while ago about it: https://sunbeam.city/@sudoreboot/105100228359255211


With my work on some basic physics and fluid interactions (buoyancy and aerodynamic drag), I’ve moved back to working on aerodynamic lift. The video shows the current state of gliders relying only on generating aerodynamic lift based on wing properties. (This also works for birds, but they can only …


I haven’t kept up with the weekly articles lately, so here they are: …

I think this is beside the point, which is the frustration pertaining the severe lack of accessibility.


Whether the populace has guns or not doesn’t matter for the purpose of maintaining leverage against the state when the authorities have drones, tanks and a military air force. It does however matter for everyone’s security, as evidenced by the crime rate in the US compared to countries in the EU. At least I don’t have to worry about shootings in the grocery store here in Sweden.


Sorry to hear :( Hope you pull out ok.


Open source robot vacuum, or home-assistant robots in general. All the options available out there are just a bunch of proprietary, patented, cloud-controlled, privacy-invading buckets running on rented software.


Makes me want to visit! (also I don’t know why my brain connected steppes to Scotland lol)


That sounds lovely. Scotland?



I also couldn’t get through it, even though I really wanted to for the world itself. It was just too much like an action movie with the action scenes distracting from the interesting stuff. I don’t know if that’s a fair take–it’s been a while since then–but that’s how I remember it.

US centrism. I tried to unsub from the worst offending communities, but I still am unable to scroll down a page without seeing something obviously only relevant to the US or tainted by yankee culture. posts and comments assume everyone is USian and anyone who isn’t is treated like a foreigner.

It made my mood worse, affecting my daily life. So I cut down, and now I barely go there at all.




This week, we have many writeups. We hear from @zesterer, @Christof, @Sarra_Kitty, @Sam, @VincentFoulon80, and @aweinstock. …
