Just swapped my server case for a Fractal Design Node 804.

Awesome case for a home server, the only gripe is how fiddly the HDD mounting system is. Nothing out of this world, but it took me a good 5 minutes per drive.

@bleakgrey I was looking at the source code for the gtk4 version of Tootle and I noticed you're missing the widget for showing image previews. I've been working on the same thing all morning for Giara, and now it's finally done and should work nicely. It's Python, but it should be fairly easy to translate to Vala, here it is in case you wanna have a look:

This is the key point and the reason FOSS means better #privacy: "The joy of open source means that users can, if they wish, verify Audacity's claims for themselves before deciding that the time has come for a fork."

Thank you all :) 💕


I did try that, but I guess I didn't wait 15 seconds, because once I did, everything started working again.

I literally don't even.


Today I woke up to the nice surprise of my PC not turning on. Not even the fans or lights, it was dead.

After tearing it all apart, swapping components with my brother's PC and calling all of my local computer stores for a new motherboard (none of which had any decent ones), I found a post on a random ass forum suggesting removing the motherboard battery, WAITING 15 SECONDS, then putting it back.


Just tried 1.0.1 and it's a lot better! Really goes to show how important image processing is with modern cameras. Great job to the devs!

Tooted from Tootle on my Pinephone 😀

@linmob I saw you're trying to change your static site generator, can I tempt you with hugo and a pretty cool theme I made?

I'm back on track! I released 1.0 powered by and and so far everything looks good! Check it out if you want, you can find it on here:

In other news, the new version of again with gtk4 and libadwaita, as well as slideshow mode and monitor configuration change detection, is coming soon!

Update on routing my house: the first cat7 run through the wall is done!

It wasn't easy because the wall channel has some weird curves apparently, and cat7 is a big chungus, but after three failed attempts and some lubricant we managed to route it all the way.

Speed seems right, we all have 1Gbps NICs and the reported speed is the same as with a direct link to the router. (BTW check out iperf3)

Overall I'm happy to say that this was a huge success!

So apparently became in . Fortunately a quick sed worked flawlessly.

I'm planning to finally wire up the whole house so that we can all have good and reliable network connectivity.

I'm planning to use CAT7 cable terminated to RJ45 for best future-proofing.

What do you think? Do you have any suggestions?

Ok so got myself a second hand HTC Vive to finally give a shot on .

It works great, except for a few weirdnesses with SteamVR. And it's amazing to see just how well VR games run under proton as well.

Let me know if you want to see a video about VR on Linux or any related topic.

February is a terrible month for me with university. I've been neglecting development, issues and MRs on my projects, hopefully I can get back to it soon, once finals are over.

I just figured I'd let you know, I'm not disappearing and I'll be back on track soon! :gnu: :linux:

Just realized something. When reviewing a product, don't bother with the specs, just put them up as text on screen while you talk about something else as people don't seem to care
