My #WorkFromHome setup. My monitor is usually attached to my tower. Work laptop instead has to make use of it. Personal laptop off to the right.
Work laptop running Windows 10 Enterprise, while my tower and personal laptop run #Fedora 31.
If I could use and do my job, I would in a heartbeat.
My daily driver is over 8 years old. I'm way past due for an upgrade.
My laptop is between 1-2 years old.
Toilet roll: format wars! I suddenly realised hoarding isn't the only problem with TR shortages - millions of office dwellers used to crap at work, and use office toilet roll *which come in multiple weird proprietary roll sizes* - suddenly you have warehouses with an excess of unused office toilet paper that can't be reused by home users as easily and an increased usage of standard home formats!
I also don't understand the purpose of using mpd+ncmpcpp over a normal gui app. Running another daemon in the background just to listen to music doesn't make sense to me, and doesn't seem particularly intuitive. Can someone explain the use case of mpd over a simple gui app?
Note that I don't live in the terminal like some of y'all, i much prefer to use a DE.
Hey thanks for the suggestions guys for music players. Most of these are pretty good!
All of these (non-terminal) music players have one major flaw though: they are dependent on your songs having proper metadata for album, artist, etc.
They don't let you build up a playlist based on filename, or let you easily build a playlist on songs with poor metadata.
For doing that, Clementine is still king.
TIL you can mount cifs folders read-write. For example if i have a shared NAS folder via Samba, i can mount it as a folder with full read-write privs.
Perfect for a bash script:
sudo mount -t cifs <source> <destination> -o username=$username,password=$password,uid=$(id -u),gid=$(id -g)
The secret sauce is
"uid=$(id -u),gid=$(id -g)"
The more I use #Fedora, the more I like it as a day to day driver. If only using Nvidia weren't such a pain in the ass on it.
I don't think I can join in the #foldingathome effort. Running it makes my aging i7-3770 run at 90C, which is well above what I'm comfortable running at.
Maybe soon...but not now.
