A mature fellow, with a hankering for control over my own computing.
I've admired Linux over the years, but have only just moved my main box over.
Desktop: Mint 19 Cinnamon
Laptop: Mint 18 MATE
Old Laptop: Bodhi 4
Previously bewitched by OpenSUSE, Peppermint, Porteus, Lubuntu, Linux Lite.
Simplicity, Choice, Freedom and Control - along with Ethical, Sustainable computing all figure into my love for Linux.
Added an updated to my org-capture post from 2 years ago, rather than just creating a new one.
Here's the updated post, part of a series:
I think I'll keep modifying and updating, making the blog more wiki-like this way, with a section dedicated to org-mode. Could be cool.
The beginning of this idea is today's post:
This is a nice writing, thanks @kzimmermann
This reminded me of settling down in #alpinelinux with my daily laptop (but rather on arm machines). I really need its diskless mode for safety.

My lesbian road trip RPG Get in the Car, Loser! is NOW AVAILABLE! Join Sam Anon on a trip to save the world from an ancient evil, flirt in the backseat, and hit every diner along the road.
The main game is free on Steam and Itch…
Christine Love and collaborators just released a new game! It's a free 7-9ish hour lesbian road trip RPG, with a $10 swimsuit DLC.
This game is SO STYLISH, every time I've looked at her laptop screen for the last 4 years of development something absurd & visually stunning has been happening. If you are a fan of ~color palettes~, you should play this game.
Today I learned about "smerge" in emacs. How did I not know about this earlier?
This video talks about smerge and ediff, btw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9S2pMZ6U5Tc
After yesterday, I'm tempted to share this link yet again...
The Open-Source Software bubble that is and the blogging bubble that was - Baldur Bjarnason: https://www.baldurbjarnason.com/2021/the-oss-bubble-and-the-blogging-bubble/
Yes: The Linux kernel, GCC, GNU LibC, Bash, CoreUtils, etc do appear to be caught up in this. Certainly Linux... I don't know about the rest of our stack...
(Don’t get me wrong, I still think the term has value in drawing attention to the power of centralised digital/networked technology to amplify the fundamental inequities and autocratic tendencies of capitalism in ways that were simply not possible before but not if we view it as a corruption of capitalism. It is capitalism working as designed, its ramifications – internalities not externalities – amplified exponentially by centralised digital/networked technology.)
I decided to use blop for my blog. Looks to be very good software with no bloat. Thanks for all the recommendations from the fediverse.
