Might as well make a proper pinned piece of prose about myself.
* I'm an enby, going by it/they.
* I'm dragonkin. All I need to say.
* I'm a fiction writer.
* I like interactive fiction, especially Inform7.
* I'm (slowly) learning to code, with Python and the like.
* I try to be chill, and am training myself to be far less negative.
* I talk a lot about different subjects, many of them tech-related.

So, I ended up popping onto Duolingo's forums for Esperanto, and someone posted a link to this channel full of Esperanto language music. INCLUDING a cover of Sound of Silence (S&G version, not the one by Disturbed).
@snowdusk_ I'm "gallowsgryph" on SDF proper and the gopherspace. So you might know me better by that.
Listening to @snowdusk_ while working on notes and ideas. Really need to figure out a way to have a small device just constantly connected to Anonradio that I can turn the speakers on for whenever I want something to listen to.
Slightly early #ScreenshotSunday of my current setup. WindowMaker is such a comfortable window manager when it's running properly.
#TIL (tonight I learned) about more environment variables I never knew `bash` had. Even with 13 years experience, I'm still learning about this stuff. 😆
That's partly why I bought this.
There's a site operating bots that enter any large Discord server with invite links, collect data on everybody in the server and then publish a list of every community scraped people are on. There are fears that it's also scraped data like chat logs, people's on/offline times, attached accounts and gameplay stuff.
So... Fuck nVidia's Linux drivers. Fuck them to hell and back. They've made my Dell machine unusable as a Linux machine, since the video flickered like made EVEN with the proprietary drivers.
So, I'm once again Tri-booting my Mac Pro 1,1. It has a Radeon HD 5770. With a modern kernel, the video drivers work.
Okay... xcompmgr works just fine in ratpoison, but the compositors for GNOME, KDE, XFCE, and Mate aren't? I'm...utterly mystified.
This looks like a cool project.
"The Open Book aims to be a simple device that anyone with a soldering iron can build for themselves. The Open Book should be comprehensible: the reader should be able to look at it and understand, at least in broad strokes, how it works. It should be extensible, so that a reader with different needs can write code and add accessories that make the book work for them."
So... I can't seem to keep a Linux distro running on this Dell XPS 410, and pretty much every failure has been video drivers. I'm using a GeForce GTS 450, and the card itself runs fine under Windows. But nouveau has tearing issues, and the proprietary drivers seem to fail at random after a time.
Can't use my 2006 Mac Pro either since the radeon drivers don't work with the mac-flashed card, so I'm very likely stuck with Windows 7+MacOS 10.6.8 on it, and Win7 in the Dell until I can buy a new GPU
Also known as gallowsgryph. I just kinda do my own thing.
