rambling about tech, gnome, playful/"funny" 

i built myself two gnome search providers yesterday (emoji shortcodes and gopass secrets)
since i didn't want to deal with dbus i built them as gnome-shell extensions and whoa, they're each basically a stack of terrible hacks in a trenchcoat :breadpeek:

Bumping this lil search engine: search.marginalia.nu

I like this engine because it doesn't show commercial websites. I encourage you to try a few searches! For me, I felt awestruck upon realizing how many results from G**g/DDG/etc are just company sites.

(Thanks @phosphor for sharing this!)

if i didn't reply to your text its because i exist within a chaotic maelstrom of ephemeral phenomena and sensory experiences where the only meaning or narrative continuity is that which arises in my own mind and also i forgot

silly, humor 

"redacted" would make a good hostname, each syslog snippet would look like i have something to hide

ENEEDHUG should be handled via the `hug` system call; see hug(2). Leaving an ENEEDHUG unhandled introduces undefined behavior, and many systems will refuse to perform other operations until the error is handled.

Contrary to popular belief, computers weren't the mistake. It's the humans writing software. Humans were the mistake all along.

Microsoft has asked Lenovo to make it harder to boot Linux on their computers.

obviously I know some really cool people who work at Microsoft but it's very funny to me that people have been harping on us FOSS types for not instantly forgiving them for 20 years of malice, and now we've got this. [1]

when Microsoft is asking manufacturers to prevent people from booting other OSes and not communicating as to why, they are positioning themselves as the enemy. it's that simple. if they want to be trusted by Linux users, they need to earn that trust.

we're about 2y away, by my estimation, from living in a bizarro world where x86 PCs are less open to free desktops than ARM Macs.

@tindall @AgathaSorceress Like - hmm, I wonder. This company that wrote a fuckload of memos in the late 90s about how they were going to lose to open source and linux in general, a company has a history of doing FUD and if that fails, EEE. Has stopped doing FUD, and is suddenly embracing open source software and linux? hmmmmm. hmmm I wonder what is going on heree

tech, question, serious, linux vs. iphone 

what's the easiest way to transfer music from one's linux machine to one's iphone these days? so one can actually listen to it i mean?

is it still to transfer the music to a computer with itunes, then from that to the phone?
