Contrary to popular belief, Linux is as user-friendly as Windows, if not more.

It's just that you're so used to Windows and don't want to learn Linux, no matter how easy it is.

A web browser should browse the web, no more, no less.

So no Firefox, I don't want Pocket or Firefox Sync support built-in
And no Chrome, I don't want FLoC and Google support built-in
And no Edge, I don't want Microsoft Integration or the online price comparison tool built-in.

Why have we gone so backwards?

Has anyone used ytfzf? It seems pretty awesome. It is even supposed to work with peertube.

And it's working! After one and half days non stop hacking. Abolish passwords and 2FA! Now I'll try to adapt it to work with mastodon.el's blash fork.

Trying tut, a TUI client for Mastodon. I really love how it works. It's much better than opening a modern browser just for browsing my timeline. And writing my posts in vi make me feel just at home.

Probably the best TUI client for Mastodon, since I've only found other one written in Python. I avoid as much as possible Python programs because they're awfully slow and they pull a ton of dependencies. Anyway, if you have recommendations for any other TUI client for Mastodon, just let me know.

Ughh I just looked and realized how many bot posts with no image descriptions I've boosted

Simplicity is so powerful. After decades, I can't stop being amazed by the KISS power.
Adding apparent fake complexity is the worst lie to yourself to justify your limitations. And this is not only true for computing...

I don't see enough appreciation towards pass, so here's some:

pass is my password manager of choice, because it's so goddamn simple it's literally just a shell script wat

I can literally host my passwords
as a git repo.

Release 23

Some bug fixes and my favorite is that emojis from toots won't leave artifacts.

Other improvements
* Smarter autocomplete for media attachments
* Allow shortcuts in View-mode, e.g. favorite and toggle spoiler
* Support for URLs from non-Mastodon instances e.g. Honk

www-gem boosted now has ads.
Yet they still market themselves as "Youtube without ads". What is this?!

I understand that such a platform has to make money somehow - but false promises - come on.


Didn't post on my gemini for weeks... Days are too short :(

Back to IRC after years... Running irssi under tmux is a joy. I can't stop being amazed by how much power "simple" tools can bring to you.

I've been taking a look at gemini lately, and I'm loving it so far ! 😀

For those who don't know, gemini is a new internet protocol that's known for its simple, private and secure nature -

If you're interested in exploring gemini, have a look at this site -

I wrote a guide on how I replaced Google Photos and still have (kind of) all the features it offered.

I eventually took 10 minutes to write a very quick post to talk about Mastodon and especially the TUI tut.
