@HexDSL Just listening to the latest TrendyTalk and when Chris started talking about running a website for a local group but he didn't want to get too much into the details, and you said, "Swingers" ...and Chris either missed it or ignored it 😂

I remember when i first discovered Linux thanks to @ChrisWere !
Man's calm explanations and rambles put things in a clear fashion. I decided to try it out!
Unlike many others, my linux start wasnt on Ubuntu,or Mint,or Debian. Was on Linux Lite! Yes it's Ubuntu based. But it was my first experience. Nowadays i am happy on Fedora and loving it everyday!
Since then, i've been learning!
Newest effort is going to be a Gemini capsule,thanks to both Chris and @HexDSL . Love you guys!

Hello Gemini! From ReStructured text to .gmi. A quick overview of the process of porting my site to gemini using #python and #bash as a little weekend project and some fun with ascii art.

My first computers... a brief Commodore 16 and plus/4 retrospective with a little Apple ][ thrown in.

Shocked that to have had any trendy talk related email yet. It's been out like 11 hours .. get a move on people. I need something to read.

Started packaging Amfora and LaGrange #gemini browsers for #debian yesterday.

Amfora relies on a few godeps that aren't in the archive yet, and LaGrange has a dep on a library also not packaged.

Going to start with LaGrange since it seems like the lower hanging fruit, and will give Amfora a crack a bit later as I get more familiar with the Debian go package specs.

Lou Ottens, the inventor of the casette tape, has died. I haven't had the chance to really get into tapes but I definitely want to. Just found about tape loops today, what a cool use of the medium. Check out r/tapeloops as well.

@HexDSL Hi, I too think that Andromeda sucks. I think that I primarily watched it because, I love science fiction and I thought the series was going to be good. I did watch the whole thing, once. Never again. I don't use micro blogging in a conventional sense either. I use a text based #Mastodon client, called #toot. If I wish to contact someone, say you, for example, I just type my message in #vi check it for messages using #ispell, re read it and once I think it's free of most errors, I post it like this: (toot post < post), where post is the article I just typed. It saves computer resources and I can dwell in the terminal console forever. Anyway, I know you wonder why anyone but you would like to play with your micro logging '#gemtoot' tools and I think there's potential there for something, perhaps, it's wishful imaginings. Where can I find the sources? I scoured your capsule but I must have overlooked it I just got home a few hours ago from work and I'm a bit sleepy. I'll look for it again later when I wake up. If you get this message, please let me know. Thank you. Post script, this entire toot was written using vi and posted using the post command of toot. #Gemini
