Isn't it crazy how at times you think for hours about a problem with
no solution in sight, then you go to sleep, wake up, and find the
solution within a few minutes? Learning here: No need to brute-force.
Let time do its magic.
Enteka wrote "Excellence by bits" and I realize this is exactly how
I've been approaching basically everything.
Open question to myself: is anonymity good online?
After a long time waiting, schismatrix arrived in the mailbox.
In the last few days... has it been a week? I've spent time learning
about the history of multics, unix, linux. It's been such an
adventure. It's humbling to see how everything unfolded. For now, I'm
hoping to create a little pubnix. For that, I'm learning about debian
and setting up systems. More updates on that soon!
Smartphones. I used to love them. Now I'm eagerly waiting the day I
stop my current work to completely stop using them. Actually not just
smartphones, but phones in general. Imagine how liberating it can be
not to carry with you a phone all the time. Proper disconnection!
Reading about the history of unix is fascinating. It's inspiring to
see how simple blocks put together can form a beautiful whole.
Especially when these simple blocks are written in plain text.
I'm amazed at the degree of customization possible in emacs. It's
literally possible to change everything and create our own workflow.
It's just seriously amazing to see.
I'm still learning a lot when it comes to Linux. Yesterday, I was
looking for a way to read the first page of hackernews directly from
gopher. It's impressive to see what a curl | grep | sed can do! It's
now live on gopher://sdf.org/1/users/m15o/hn
I just saw that brave will roll-out their own search engine. I'm all
in favor of anything that helps with privacy. For a few month new
breaks way too many sites, it feels better.
I just found out about gemini://konpeito.media and what a great
surprise! Old-school mixtapes with a great vibe. Perfect companion to
browse the small web. I love how the first mixtape is called
"TRAPPIN' IN GOPHERSPACE".
