*But I had no problem doing most of the things I needed to, prepared for tutoring lessons without problem, only school and uni stuff is problematic, since they require some webapps
*I really love having a distinct programs for distinct tasks. If I want to see a picture someone posted on here, I check it in Feh, if I want to see a YT video, I'll view it in mpv. It feels more organic than having everything in one place

quick update on (mostly) cli living:
*I always notice myself fearing that I'm missing some information. On tootstream, I'm afraid that the "home" command only loads some posts, and not all which I have not seen; in Elinks, I am scared of not understanding the websites, of missing something obvioud because of the missing Css layout or visual clues. It's like information FOMO"

So this week, I'm trying to use programs exclusiveli in the terminal. I am typing this in tootstream at the moment. I also trie out Lynx, w3m and elinks, but I like elinks the most, so I'll try messing around with that. If you have any recommendations for more CLI, or just low resource programs, please, let me know!

Took apart my two laptops yesterday to put the SSD from the more powerful one into the smaller one(thinkpad x121e), since I use the small one more often. Turns out, it didn't really help the performance, it still takes me about 5 seconds to open qutebrowser, I guess the CPU is the bottleneck.
Maybe my approach was misguided: why try to fix the software problem with better parts,when I can find less demanding software?

I’m talking specifically here about this app called Transit that constantly requests access to my fitness data so it can tell me if I need to (no joke) run faster to make it to my bus / streetcar on time.

Can't wait for fall break, much more time for personal projects! I'll list some here, maybe I'll stick to them more.

-figuring out if I can power my old ZTE Kis phone with a solar panel backplate made for the LG GD510
-figuring out gemini hosting and webhosting in general, trying to run Agate on the ZTE Kis running Debian
-Learning more uxn!
-catching up on reading
-many more, but I don't want to overcrowd the list and lose focus (I tend to)

What personal projects do you have for this fall?

Hello friends! Just moved over from mastodon.art, I though this place would fit me better.

Hope you have a great day!
