Pinned toot

Not new to fedi, just poking around on a different instance, but I might as well do an for the local timeline. I'm Jakob, formerly @jakob, and here's the obligatory list of things I'm interested in:

Getting to make dinner again is legitimately my favorite part of coming home. The university I attend has some of the best food in the country, but you just can't beat home cooking

Jakob boosted

Starting off with games/ezquake - join for some frags

Hacking away in front of a warm fireplace is extremely cozy

Productive lunch break, I replaced newsboat with elfeed and wrote a few functions for manipulating 'erc-track-exclude

First couple days of configuring the hell out of ERC have been a blast, maybe when I get back to my dorm I'll give bitlbee another shot

Maybe emacs will replace mutt for me as well some day

Irssi's been my client of choice for ages, but I think I might give ERC a chance today just because I'm imagining elisp as being more pleasant to use than perl

Finally got around to setting up the X drivers for i965 on my laptop and now I can play Quake 3 at a decent framerate. I probably shouldn't be terribly surprised by the drastic jump in performance, but this is my first experience with IGT

Jakob boosted

Man I"m lame, I've only been at uni for three days and I already want to go back home

Moving in was actually pretty seamless, aside from barely being able to fall asleep last night. Had some dark roast coffee in the dining commons and planned out a running route for when I'm done with lectures today

Ham radio outlet sent me four (unsolicited) copies of the same catalog

Actually, I'm a little sad to be moving out

Voted! Well, on an absentee ballot, since I'm moving into my dorm tomorrow

Hacking together a hand-written lexer/parser for org-mode in Common Lisp

Uh, I guess so? Usually if I'm recommending that someone go to the emergency room, I don't specify which one

Whoa, why haven't I heard of this until just now?

(I really wish GNU Radio wasn't written in Python 2.)
