Since this really irked me...

Never be afraid to earn a living from what you love doing. This *is* my full-time job, has been for years.

If you complain at me for not moving to X or Y platform, then claim I'm some kind of "corporate shill" or "money-making outlet"...the door is the unfollow button and I'll be muting you forever.

I can't remember who made me notice that what sits between soft-ware and hard-ware is called firm-ware, but they opened my eyes more than any philosophy book.

I wanted to try out ImHex (imhex.werwolv.net/), so here is the corresponding Nix derivation: github.com/tcheneau/mynixpkgs/
Go to the root of the repository if you want to know how to use it.

I just wrote a new blog article about Nix, NixOS, Zed - an encryption software - and how (not to) package a proprietary software on Nix.
Tell me what you think and if you like this type of content.

Je suis très heureux de vous annoncer la sortie de mon deuxième livre consacré aux jeux tactiles en papier.

C'est le résultat de plus de 4 années de travail sur le thème des jeux pour les enfants aveugles.

Le livre a été présenté officiellement la semaine dernière lors d'une conférence à l'INSHEA et l'ouvrage est disponible... aujourd'hui 🙂

Say you are looking to revive a dead Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 tablet (Lenovo YT-X703F) and you can't find a battery because there is a worldwide shortage. Provided that you can use a soldering iron, a viable option is to buy three "INR Samsung Lithium Battery 30Q 3000mAh", open the existing battery encasing (carefully), unsolder the controller, and solder the new batteries instead. I took me perhaps 3 hours all in all, but I saved a tablet.

Okay, I'm curious, when did you guys first hear about/join Linux? Please boost for a wider data pool. :boost_love:

Looks like our current (French) President is getting a Long Term Support and will be maintained for the next 5 years.

I moved away from Httpd to Caddy for my Hugo personal websites and I'm impressed how clean are. And the best is that HTTPS is already provided built-in my default!

I did all the Golang track from qvault.io/ (Go Mastery 1&2, Social Media Backend Server and Go Interview prep). I worked on it on and off and it took me a month. I must admit that the lessons and exercises are well designed and provide pointers to very interesting resources (Do you know what happen when you write to a closed channel?). Next one: Golang track on exercism.org/.
