Whenever I see something distributed via pip I run. I later come back because I actually needed the script/program and I fight pip/python and its paths and versions a couple of hours. Sometimes I succeed. Today was not such a day. just will not find youtube_dl. Only a sadist could come up with this package management. 🤬

(sorry python devs, I just need to cool off)

@chriswere Hey Chris! I also maintain an "open source frontends" lists. Have you seen ? It's nojs and awsum!

Strong and non-objectified female protagonists in retro games – help me find them!

Would like to eventually prep a gaming station for my daughter.

So, why on earth isn't there a add-on for the browser? There has to be a reason!

The new Mogwai album is exactly what I needed this morning.

Note to self (and others): upgrade macOS only when necessary. I stay one–two years behind on OS versions and this method has worked well for me the last ten years. In short: keep it until you can't (no security updates).

So, for some reason I abandoned that principle a week that and decided to give Big Sur "a go". Believe me, I've been through hell and back the last two days. Kernel panics within minutes of booting.

Now I'm wiping, installing Catalina and praying. 🙏

Never again!

(Bonfire was previously known as CommonsPub.)

So, perhaps I can finally let one of those sensor sprinkled Chinese surveillance bots patrol my home.
