spam may be a good way to fight back against the companies that deal in data. garbage in, garbage out.

The standard salvage computing platform - solderpunk
was using my laptop as a second-display by just doing X forwarding over ssh to my desktop, and it was fine. Someone asked if I was also using barrier. So I looked that up, installed it, and it sure as heck makes it a lot easier not having to switch keyboards and mice depending on which display I'm looking at.
and using it in this script:
dev=$(webcam-device) && exec mpv --no-cache "$dev" || xmessage "no camera found"
idea: flowchart-oriented technical support wiki
kinda like a support forum, but instead of being oriented for threads containing posts, you ask a question, and replies come like flowchart blocks where you respond to spin it off in a direction
and then if someone else has the same question but a different cause, they can branch it off wherever their problem starts to differ
blocks can be edited, annotated with sources, marked out of date, etc. with the idea being that what starts as a forum-post like "i have this problem please help" grows into a living document for solving that problem
