Pinned toot

Time to introduce myself to tilde.zone. I'm 35. Freelancer, working from home for the last 10 years (mostly on WordPress and PHP). I'm Linux user for more than that, but never learned it properly. I play a lot of games. Usually on Xbox.

And I'm not good in introductions 😂

I've just released #emacs #orgmode 9.3.8, a bugfix release.

Enjoy!

Org 9.4 will be released soon, stay tuned.

Also note I don't put the blame entirely on the developers themselves. No architect or civil engineer has to go out in their spare time to learn how to make accessible buildings or crosswalks. It's part of their core education.

Somehow, my CS education thought it was super important to tell me about linked lists and data structures, but not how blind people use the internet. I think they could have spared at least a week on this.

Omg I did it. I've replaced pump in washing machine. It's 2-in-1 with tumble drier. Now I can wash and dry my clothes any time. Which is nice cause it rains every few days.

Small Emacs update: I'm setting up mu4e as my mail client. Reason is very simple. With all the sources Gnus is using it takes quite a long time to open and refresh. Mail is critical communication channel for me, ergo it needs to be quick. Maybe some day I will get back to Gnus (scoring looks awesome) when I master him more.

After initial testing I have decided to move away from mastodon.el in Emacs. It looks some functionality (don't know how to zoom picture). I will leave it as a part of my Emacs setup. I don't mind few more seconds spend on initial launch of application. As an added bonus I can toot from Emacs, where I spend most of my day.

I bought Rimworld yesterday. See you in December

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.
