@luke So while you are driving you are debating the writing of a Soap Opera based in space that started back at the end of the last Century. Maybe you should contact George and let him know how wrong him and his writers was about the fiction they wrote. Very good job you did get me to click.
@derek IMHO one should just replace GNOME with a tiling window manager. You have to customize your desktop anyway.
@luke Hey it's nice to see you are checking out a BSD. OpenBSD is not a bad choice. Really I am posting this comment to see if I can post to peertube from mastodon.
BSD Now 408: FreeBSD DevSummit 2021
No pun this time; the episode covers the title exactly - plus more recent headlines.
@derek IMHO you should write everything in LaTeX that way for those that are text challenged can use a WYSIWYG LaTeX editor. There are several out there for all platforms. I agree we certainly need to get away from all these stupid binary and proprietary formats if for no other reason that to be able to properly share documents with each other. At work I write my docs in LaTeX and covert them to pdf for those folks trapped in windows land.
@derek I'm glad you did this on Awk. I know everyone for some reason like sed. However I have always like AWK much more since it's similar to other languages I have used and use today. AWK complements C pretty good howver I have also been enjoying lua and think lua is a better drop in replacement for both awk and sed then again I guess one could say the same about python or any other scripting langague that can run from the console. I guess it really comes down to preference.
Just your average C programmer.
