@groovestomp I too stumbled through trying s6 but never gave it a fair shot.
I think artix has an s6 version, obarun seems alright, but it's a little light on documentation. I might have to try artix with it though, see if I can get a little more in depth.

❝Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.❞ β€” Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)


β€’ Cecilia Payne won a scholarship to Cambridge.

β€’ Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said to heck with that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.

β€’ Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called β€œthe most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”

β€’ Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne β€” after telling her not to publish).

β€’ Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.

β€’ Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard and the first woman to head a science department at Harvard. She also inspired entire generations of women to take up science.

β€’ Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.

Alright, here's the deal. I updated my build files, and now I can update http and gemini in one quick git push. Nice.
I still have to hand swap the original html to gemtext though.
Luckily, I quite purposefully strive for 99% text anyway, so it isn't hard.
(The musical score provided by youtube is the 1%)

Man, sr.ht adding pages so I can just ship my stuff to them and let them handle it all is the best thing ever.
Especially since they support gemini out of the box. Now I need to figure out how to get my content onto gemini as well as the usual suspect and upload it all in one fell swoop.
Anyone know a good html - gemtext type thing?

~β™‘Hello Worldβ™‘~

My name is Berry! It's very nice to meet you all! I'm here to learn Linux and Python so that I can better prepare for my dream career in Linux SysAdmin and Infrastructure! Here's to hoping we can be good friends! I'm also saving up for the equipment for a FireWire RAID server, and a Pocket C.H.I.P.! (And possibly to get an iMac G3 to a repair shop, I don't know what's going on with it but it refuses to boot.)

Good news guys! Twitter could be looking to launch THE FIRST EVER decentralized social network. It's about time someone did this... entrepreneur.com/article/36532

I'm on this eternal quest to find like the perfect window manager. I keep just swapping around trying new things, new ways to interact with things. Nothing seems quite right. I get settled in, things seem great, and then I miss something from an older one, or need something the new one won't do. It's an adventure.

I've gotten back from a visit to my grandparents, and my granddad let me take home whatever old books I found as he wasn't reading any of them. I found an old programming book about ANSI C, so obviously I couldn't resist :D

I also found the LOTR series, which my parents have forbidden me from reading because it wasn't christian enough for them but are now letting me take it back because I can "handle it now, you're old enough".

All in all, I've got plenty to read with those and other books :)

I'm in an odd mood for the day.
Listening to Manic Street Preachers, from back in the Good ol' days of Holy Bible, Generation Terrorists, and Gold against the Soul. I never could get into the newer stuff from Everything must go and on.
It feels odd, to go back to a time when I wasn't really me, but to still feel quite a lot like that person is me.
Nostalgia is a strange thing.

Is it suspicious to anyone else that Games Workshop brought back Mortarion, the champion of Nurgle, God of decay and disease.. And then we got a pandemic?
This is next level marketing.

@groovestomp Hah, Yeah. I think 2 almost made me just quit. I mean, it ends nicely. At least as far as I remember. I liked the final courtroom, the whole story is sorta silly but you know, sometimes that's okay. There's a reason they made an anime of 1, skipped 2, and made the anime of 3 I think.

3 was definitely the best all round. I had the worst time getting it running correctly on linux, so I don't have as fond memories as I probably would have otherwise, but it was fun, story was interesting, murders were as crazy as always. So.

2 was iffy. It started bad, got worse, but finished pretty good.

I read the books when I was like thirteen, which was a long time before the movies came out. I watched the movies like, did that happen in the books? I don't think it did, but who knows? Maybe I should watch the movies again after I finish the books so I can compare directly!

Halfway through Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.

I'm reading Lord of the rings again. Or rather, listening to it. Audiobooks are the best.
