@hund I just wanted to reach out and thank you for your blog! I remember reading it when I was 16-17 or so (so 10 years ago 😅). I signed up to fosstodon a couple of days ago. When I saw your name just now a great wave of nostalgia came over me. I'll for sure check out linuxkompis. :) Have a fantastic day, you sure made mine.

I need to do some major file reorganizing and felt nostalgic for a double pane file browser. I found this little gem and am just playing with it. It seems to work really well on Ubuntu Mate.


Requesting ideas:

I have an SSD with windows on it from back when I built my computer 3 years ago and was still scared Linux wouldn't be all I dreamed. I think it's safe to say that I'm never going to use it at this point 😋.

What would you guys do with an extra 500G SSD?

I offer my almost completely untouched ArcoLinux for . I haven't done anything you make it fancy so far, but I've been enjoying it! 🙂

Ok, so in your Minetest videos you are building these huge castles and things. Did you go mine and make all of that material, or in creative mode you just have access to all of it right away?

Anyone else have a situation in Gentoo where Chromium never finishes emerging?

I love the first creature on your "creatures" page! They're all good but I like him especially 😀

Hey #Nordics! So I started to translate the intro page for Regolith #linux (not a user personally but like the project) into Swedish.

Are there any Norwegians, Danes, Finns, Sapmi-speakers or Icelandics in here who wanna translate the page into their languages? Just to help a small project out?

The text is short, and easy to translate.



Thanks for teaching me about Minecraft guys!

I'm officially on ArcoLinux on my desktop! My first install of i3 that is on hardware instead of VM 🙂.

@omnipotens did you decide to go with RebornOS?

Got an email this morning asking if I was interested in applying for a job.

"Must be able to perform teardown, inspection, build-up and test of assemblies and sub-assemblies on various components associated with the AH-64D Longbow Apache."

When I said that I had apache experience on my resume, this is not what I had in mind.

If you have any favorite Python :python: books, lectures, articles, blog posts, etc. I would appreciate suggestions! I know very little 😋

I'd rather truly understand transferable concepts than work thought syntax tutorials over and over. So info on broad concepts, data structures, algorithms, etc would be great.

I don't have a computer science or mathematics degree, so things that start rudimentary and ramp up as I go would be awesome.

Thanks 🤓

I was excited when I first started computers back in the days of Dos 3. It became very frustrating having to spend more on utilities to fix the OS in order to use it. Everything became humdrum until I found Linux. It put the fun back into computing.


I love your website ♥️ . All of it. The pretty neutral background colors and the green. Calming and simple without feeling sparse or dull.

I also really appreciated where you talked about all your favorite writing / word processing apps. I've not tried most of them. I love to write and stopped as "life got busy." I've just started trying to write a little something every day to reconnect with that portion of my imagination. Thanks for the inspiration on that!

I just used @codesections 's t5 (Tool for Tabulating Thirty Top Tooters) to see what users I've favorited the most. Not many surprises to me in my top 5 😜.

Although, @kelbot, to be fair, you were in the #3 and #6 slots with 2 different accounts! Sneaky.

Thanks for the fun, codesections!

I just completed my first even gentoo install :gentoo:!! I know it's only in virtualbox and it's not much to look at yet, but I did it and had a blast :yay:!

Special thanks to my favorite person on Mastodon, @hund. It only took him over a year and a half to convince me I wasn't too noob to try.

:linux: :yay: :gentoo: 🎉 :linux: :yay: :gentoo: 🎉

What an awesome start to Monday. Coffee :cupofcoffee: , Alice in Chains 🎶 , and Linux 🐧 ! Hope y'all have a good Monday too 🙂
