Removed keyboard stickers and rearranged the keys today in order to push myself to learn to touch type. It's going to be an uncomfortable couple of days (weeks?)

Okay, I'm curious, when did you guys first hear about/join Linux? Please boost for a wider data pool. :boost_love:

What keeps you guys motivated? I have been feeling uninspired these past weeks, not really reading much and playing a lot more video games while also falling back into the cycle of checking reddit. I feel that simply demonizing these things does not help at all and makes me feel even worse.

I'm sad I had to leave messing around with uxn for a while, uni became quite overwhelming. It would be great to hop back in

Software Doldrums
by Rek and Devine of Hundred Rabbits.

This talk, which was featured as a keynote at LibrePlanet 2022, is about the dangers and shortcomings of relying on always-online proprietary platforms. Hundred Rabbits will share how they reimagined their software to encourage the reuse, repair and maintenance of existing hardware.

Wrote a 23kb implementation of the Varvara emulator in plain X11(without SDL2). It's lightning fast, I think this might just become my goto #uxn emulator.

just uploaded my tool to let you make an embedable bandcamp-style player for selling music on itch.io (or anywhere you can embed html+js+assets)

Iffy Books is a new little bookstore in philly seeking to share knowledge of hacking, free culture, gardening, zines.

Today I went with my friend to set up a Wemo D1 clone with another non-techie friend and we were able to get this chip to display a website! It was my friend's first time learning html and css, and as a designer it was a lot of fun for her. I enjoyed being able to learn a new board to use with the Arduino other than the circuit playground.

The guide zine is available for free (along with the zines for all the other workshops) if you want to try as well. It's still a work in progress since today's session was also a bit of debugging, but great fun!

You might see that there is actually a use of some work by #varia on there! @rra

Iffy Books will be soon to join Mastodon too (after a little persuasion :) )

I'm also very excited to learn about efforts to implement a mesh network for Philadelphia!

Does anyone have experience using e-ink monitors? I feel like my computing habits are converging towards a workflow that is compatible with one.

Does anyone have keyboard recommendations? I'm thinking of getting a mechanical one, but I'm a bit lost. I'd like something that's portable and is built to last/be easy to repair.

I am looking at the Planck, but it would be great to buy something that is made closer to my location (central Europe)

What's the state of #pinephone? Is it suitable as a daily driver? (i.e. can I reliably get texts and phone calls without fuss?)

Wasn't able to work on uxn, but made some changes to my website trying to make it more lightweight, I'll share once I eradicated all google fonts.

As another uni semester starts, I am teing to make Teams usable again on my old laptop, but still failing. I have to resort to using my phone again, but this at least gives me the opportunity to write notes by hand! I feel like having both the phone and the laptop open to be a waste
