@don Hell, yes. Seeing someone finger-type is like watching a 30-year-old with stabilizers. These "I'm not a computer person"s spend upwards of 45 hours a week on a computer - a number which would put a grand chessmaster to shame. IF YOU WORK WITH COMPUTERS LEARN TO USE A COMPUTER.

@don Have you seen Qutebrowser? I find it allows for a faster workflow, as it's more keyboard driven, including keyboard-based shortcuts and vim-like functions where you input q to instruct it on any repetitive action.

@malin no, I haven't heard of Qutebrowser until now. I'll check it out. I do tend to be a big fan of Firefox because I support the work of Mozilla and its Internet Health and Digital Rights initiatives. But I'll give Qutebrowser a look. Thanks!

I love your enthusiasm, though your setup is just different enough from mine to be frustrating to watch, lol. I use dwm, st, dwmstatus with custom patches, tmux, vim, and bash to write mostly C99 on DragonFly BSD or HardenedBSD, while I slowly work on replacing everything with simpler, smaller utilities.

Good to see more talks about making your job easier by stripping things out instead of adding in ever more complex tools and processes too

Ah, a fan of the suckless tools. Nice! I haven't taken them for a spin yet, but they sit in a favourable place in my "must-check-out-eventually" list.

Thanks for the ping. I'm more motivated to check out these tools now. I have a new ZenBook I need to rebuild soon. Sounds like a good opportunity to check 'em out then.

"... frustrating to watch" 😺 haha!

Yup, I love the design focus of simple and small favored by suckless, 9front, and OpenBSD. I'd get rid of bash too, but haven't managed to make rc or ksh quite as useful in every day use yet.
