I hate it when people tell me to look at the bright side when the only "good" thing to happen to me since I moved to Berlin (9 months) was to barely avoid being homeless.

There is no bright side, there is a side not completely stained in shit. Sometimes showing people that you understand and feel sorry for them is a much better help than telling them to look at the positive aspects. It feels very invalidating when you tell them the ways it could be worse.

And I just want to add that Bash is the crappest shell in the world, it's like the worst of all worlds. It's the slowest shell that I've ever used, its completion is not that good, it's not greatly customisable. It has many unnecessary features (such as making tcp connections) and lots of obscure bugs.

Yash is an absolutely beautiful shell. The line input mechanism and tab completion is great unlike simpler shells like dash or ksh. It's super fast unlike the painstakingly slow shells such as bash, fish, or zsh.

Today, as I was trying to get a cross-compiler working, my cousin came up to me and jokingly said "Are ya coding, son?". Then he continued, "Notice how I'm not saying 'Are ya winning', because the answer is already obvious."

Thanks, just the roast I needed.

Also, no, I still didn't get the cross-compiler working.

Do NOT install #NewPipe through the Samsumg Galaxy Store!

A copy of #newpipe is currently distributed through the Samsung Galaxy Store by a third party. The package id of that version is identical to the officiail one (org.schabi.newpipe), but the signing keys differ.
Surprisingly, users running an outdated version recieve a notification to update their installed version with the one uploaded in the Galaxy Store.

Let it snow in #Emacs (now with wind, varying intensity, and accumulation on terrain).

#+begin_quote alphapapa@r/emacs
This year I added varying snowstorm intensity, varying wind, and accumulation of snow on "terrain" (the ground and whatever background ASCII art is configured)....

In the video and that screenshot you might notice little red dots appearing at times. I think it's a bug in either Emacs 28 and/or the native-comp branch that I used for testing; it's not inherent to this package. Just pretend that they're Christmas lights. ;)

After a year of using vanilla , I have decided to jump on the Doom train. I was always kind of hesitant when it came to using "community configurations" so I hope this ends up well for me.

I absolutely hate people with zero system administration skills throwing shit at people and software because of their inability to edit a configuration file or spare 5 minutes to read some documentation.

Their idea of "simplicity" is the amount of commands they have to enter on the command line. I am not even talking about garbage build systems, if you don't know how to use basic UNIX commands, maybe you shouldn't be administrating a system in the first place.

Recompiling WebKit2GTK so that I can get warm.

Turkey's recent history is rife with human rights-stifling legislation. Turkish Internet law and amendments will further cement that trend. Learn more:

Sometimes I cannot understand whether I like writing documentation, or absolutely hate it.

I see a lot of people who act like capability-based security is the second coming of christ, second only to those who say that of Rust

But, like, have you guys tried Plan 9
