Well this is awesome. #SteamDeck running on a dell laptop dock to dual monitors over display port. It chugs if you try to game this way, but it's a great workstation. #freecad @FreeCAD

Browser preference aside, let's just acknowledge that if you use a web browser you always are going to run some kinds of security risks unless you disable javascript and JIT.

What's the difference between conspiracy theory and fact?

Ive kept messing around with the "file names as tags" idea. Or, rather than using the subdirectory paradigm of ~/Pictures/wallpapers, naming the file Wallpaper-leaves.png, and putting all images in one directory. The reason being, it makes searching with standard unix tools very quick. I have a classification called Broll. Like B-roll, as in the extra footage film makers shoot to give texture to the story. With the command: "find images/Broll* | sxiv -ito | xargs gimp", I get a full screen thumbnail display of all images labeled Broll, can navigate with hjkl, and mark with m. When I quit sxiv, all files I've marked get sent to gimp and opened in tabs. There is something about this flow that I really enjoy.

Stop using AMP. Stop using WEBP.

Stop letting Google run the Internet.

If you were interested in Gemini but the command-line clients were putting you off, have a look at Lagrange. It’s a graphical Gemini browser that makes Gemini far more approachable.

Using 2FA phone numbers for targeted advertising. One of the dumbest ways ever for a company to abuse its users’ trust. Take a bow, Twitter. And have a $150 million fine too.

I did something kinda weird.
I created a notes system for myself in Vim.
It has automatic link creation like Vimwiki,
auto encrypts .pgp and .asc files when created, transparently edits them, and has nice syntax highlighting.

That is not so weird. The weird part is, it uses gemini markdown, (although it can use anything, including .txt), has its own snippet engine for autopasting commonly typed text, and requires no plugins. (except for gnupg)

And its all done with two short lines of vim script in your vimrc.

I wrote about it here:
