Pinned post

Follow me for threads about building software that morph briefly into pondering on the design motivations of CPU architectures before veering sharply into economics and political philosophy, followed immediately by a toot about video games.

It's like every kind of nerd rolled into one!

Old school queers 🤝 new queers

flagging to subtly communicate what we're into

If anyone sees me online after 0400 UTC tomorrow (so, the next one), you have my permission to kick my ass and tell me to go to sleep

Hey, lovelies.

Sooo, as I'm quickly learning what I've taken to calling "the Contractor's Burden", I have once again not been paid on-time. You can bet your ass that they're going to be getting an earful from me, because this pattern has gotten *very* old.

In the meantime, I've got a few bills coming up, as well as no money for food.

If you could: would you mind kicking me a few bucks to get some of this nonsense under control?

Does anyone have good resources on African socialism? Basically anything on all the countries on the African continent that tried their hand at implementing a more democratic economic system.

People don't need jobs. They need material support, community, and purpose. Paid work to serve profit is a wasteful and exploitative way of achieving these actual needs.

tragic news from Buckingham Palace today as Queen Elizabeth II has broken the warp ten barrier and mutated into a giant salamander

Btw if anyone wants my GoG login hmu. I don't have a ton of stuff on there, but I've got some. I just disabled two-factor authentication and changed the password because I realized there's no reason not to share it lol

tragic news from Buckingham Palace today it turns out the monarchy is still in place

logging into the Guix IRC like "what is up it is me the bitch with problems"

they probably hate me lol

Wait.

Unless this is a chroot issue and I don't have the right kernel features enabled.

Argh, but I can't update my system config right now because it's trying to build stuff that's failing to build (which I'm guessing is why there are no substitutes available)...

I'm getting weird networking errors when I try to bootstrap xbps-src on Guix. Blergh. I seem to have full network authority. In fact, I seem to have more than on the Pi where I have to use sudo to be able to run ping... (yes I know this is a bad idea don't worry)

Void is just an extremely well-executed distro. Idk what else I can say about it. It's exactly what it aims to be and it's very good at being that.

Aha!

The Guix homepage links to its wiki which links to the unofficial systemcrafters wiki which in turn provides instructions for non-free installations.

That's... Weirdly exactly what I was thinking they should do but they should then make the wiki a main part of the instruction flow, if that makes sense

Like how when you download an ISO some distros then take you to basic documentation that then links to any potential deeper docs.

Void. I'm talking about Void Linux.

Also, if you make a functional package manager, please put the hash *after* the package name so things can be found in the filesystem by humans
