I've got a good one;)

Imagine that for one year you can have only one of those. Which one would it be?

P.S.: you know what to do to get a better result 🔁

It's cool that the platform is not really targeted by many corporations and so you end up using mostly community projects to get things done. It has a bit of a mid-2000s Linux vibe.

Also yes, I do plan to contribute to the FreeBSD Handbook to make it better. Just been involved in a few big projects recently so didn't have time yet.

I have been using as my primary desktop and development machine for a month now, having migrated from Manjaro.

Things I like - package management makes sense... I mean - it just does 👀 . Things that work just work and perform relatively well (laptop go brrr).

Things I don't like - some things just don't work and it's not easy to find resources to fix them (FreeBSD handbook is pretty good, but it's not Arch's wiki). How do I even dbus? So you want to run Sublime Text on 🤡 ?

Usain Bolt, what a legend. You can tell a lot about a person from the way they treat support staff.

After a few weeks of playing around I think I'm done with my basic 13 setup. Using wm on , with . Trying to wrap my head around , (although using a bit as well), and .

The only problem left to solve is why it doesn't pick up the HDMI port that I have. Doesn't work in or terminal either 🤔

The OSS bubble that is and the blogging bubble that was – Baldur Bjarnason

“The biggest problem—and this isn’t limited to web development—is how it has baked exploitation into the core worldview of so many people.”

I will, one day, figure out how to properly autostart applications with . I will probably also figure out how to get my trackpoint's middle mouse button scrolling in xorg on as well. Critical issues, I know, but I think they might have to wait.

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

I just accidentally all packages in my FreeBSD installation.

Can someone please start making smartphones with integrated hardware keyboards again? Pretty please?

It's interesting how meetings at work can be hard work while effectively preventing you from doing any work at the same time 🤔

Somehow I had an easier time setting up on my laptop last year than I did installing it again this weekend. It feels like useful information became fragmented. Previously it was just the handbook and freebsd forums. This year I had to google my way to useful information for days.

It might be due to obscurity of the setup I wanted to have ( + )?

Defeated by on . I give up for today, I think my brain needs a reset.

Sure, let's ditch the painstakingly crafted setup we have, install and start from scratch. Sounds like a great idea...

So I'm trying to run on Arch and it's acting up. The first time I run it from GDM, it just straight up looks like broken GPU artifacts, probably some mess. When I switch from that session and back to it again, it looks OK. Any ideas?

Spent the weekend mostly either playing or watching . Much needed downtime, been pushing myself too hard again.
