It's still very experimental, but I'm messing around with #gemini at my new capsule, gemini://hyperborea.org

So far I've copied a few pages from my website and started a #gemlog. Mostly I'm trying to get a good sense of what works best in the ultra-minimalist environment. I'll probably still be moving things around for a while.

The first beta build of #Lagrange for iOS is now on TestFlight.

Join now and not only will you get a preview of v1.3, but you'll also get to enjoy a variety of exciting bugs. Will it crash and burn?

#Gemini

Any particular reason for my home feed to show only my posts and no one else's?

I've been away since mid 2018, but that shouldn't be a reason?

And yes, I'm still following people.

Here I am playing , one of the best and most demanding flight sims, on , using the Steam client and maximum quality settings.

It might not yet be the year of the Linux desktop but 2018 definitely seems like the year of .

Gopher is still alive!

To all the and fans out there, what would you think of going one step further than what is doing and create an easy to use phlog system using ?

Gopher is the predecessor to HTTP and it enforced a minimalist menu-document interface, without all the embedded multimedia of the current web, but crucially focused on the content, without distractions, cookies, banners...

I did a few to figure out which is the top performing web browser in .

After requesting the input from , these were the 5 browsers I decided were representative enough to include in the test:





(WebEngine)

Thank you all for the suggestions, next time I should also include smaller ones. Thank you @kelbot for letting me know about Falkon. I'm sure @hund will enjoy the final winner:

I'm soon going to benchmark web browsers on Linux on a regular basis, seeing how they evolve over time.

I need to come up with a list of browsers to test, which are representative enough. Maybe the top 4 or top 5.

Firefox, Chrome and Opera are obvious choices, but what would you add as well?

I'm flying to Miami tomorrow to spend a week there, does anyone know of any geeky stuff to do?

I'll be visiting the Frost Science Museum with its 8K planetarium and the rest of the time I'll be strolling along downtown and South Beach with the wife.

My review of 18.04 LTS:

Admittedly a bit of "self-promotion" but I've been having nice feedback, so it's also about sharing something on-topic with the best Linux community, the instance of .

So I have found several blogs talking about the linuxrocks outage. Most were in frustration of the outage and thinking we just up and shutdown. Rest assure we have no plans to go anywhere. If we did there will be much conversation and with opportunities to pass the instance on to someone else if we did decide to walk away. We all know no one is immune from outages even Amazon and Google has seen their fair shares the best we can do is learn from them and prepare best we can.

Git should be thaught in schools. It's such a basic skill in this modern world and not just for coding! For almost any kind of projects, like writing theses.

After trying out Void Linux ARM, I'm back to Arch Linux ARM on my RPi3 desktops.

Void Linux is great and in general it feels like Arch Linux in its infancy, even more minimal, which is good.

That being said, there's something about their build process that makes me stay away for now. At least on the ARM branch they often have broken packages that mess up dependencies and stay like that for longer than I can wait.

Mixed feelings about Void Linux on my RPi3 so far.

Installation went fine, but when trying to upgrade with xbps-install -Su I'm getting this:

file-5.33_1: broken, unresolvable shlib `libmagic.so.1'
Transaction aborted due to unresolved shlibs.

One of the devs on IRC told me the "file" package is having trouble building right now, so maybe that's the culprit. I'll wait and see.

I'll install Void Linux ARM on one of my Raspberry Pi 3s soon.

Let's see how it compares to Arch Linux ARM.
