I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at https://mch2022.org
Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.
@brandon @g Homeassistant is awesome. I used to have a small screen plugged into my raspberry pi but I realized that I didn't really use it even though it looks nice. Now I have a bunch of rules so I can interact with my appliances with a simple remote control (ZRC-90). That also offers the advantage to not have to go to a "main station" to control things.
@szczezuja I've realized that I was not maintaining my gemini capsules/html pages by lack of time and decided to instead post things here and share stuff through codeberg. That said I still love gemini.
Linux elitism makes me sick. I'm tired of people screaming at me what I should be doing on my computer. Shouldn't the linux desktop be about freedom, not about basement people with super inflated egos narrowing your choices?
Please don't be a linux elitist. It's not healthy for the community and your social life.
@redstarfish I have been an emacs user but neovim and cli tools eventually works better for my workflow. The ability to build the best system for your needs thanks to a gigantic variety of available tools is really one of the great powers offer by GNU/Linux. Everyone can find what works best for him/her and that invaluable.
@kelbot Very interesting. Thanks for sharing. I've been through quite some of these tools but I'm also discovering some.
I was really hoping to hear back from others and their favorite cli tools :(
@alejandrobdn $200 for the v4!!! It be cheaper to have it sent to you from the US ^^ The 1GB v4 sells at $35.
@alejandrobdn I was thinking about getting a new one but didn't know the prices have increased. Looks like they're still the same as they used to be in the US. It may depend on which version you're interested in as well.
Power is in simplicity so I'd like to share some maybe overlooked Linux:
C-a: go to beginning of line
C-e: go to end of line
C-u / C-k: remove everything before/after the cursor
C-y: paste what has been deleted with C-u or C-k
Alt-Backspace: delete the expression before the cursor
mkdir -p : create folders recursively
cd - : go back to last cd'ed directory
cd .. : go back one level
cd ../.. : go back 2 levels
cd ../../.. : go back 3 levels
you get the idea ;)
@nytpu While using Arch for more than 2 decades I may have encountered one issue after an update and it was extremely easy to revert to a stable state. That contrasts with one year under OpenSuse where instability was part of the system :P
@joel Thanks for the explanations. For whatever reasons I'm not really into stuff sync. I'll have to find another excuse to get my own server ^^
