The recent Linus Tech Tips series on ‘gaming’ in Linux seems to have sparked a lot of controversy and discussion1. It was genuinely heartbreaking to watch PopOS fail so miserably. I primarily felt bad for the PopOS team themselves, who probably work tirelessly contributing to an open source ecosystem, only to be ‘shown up’ in front of millions of viewers, for a mistake that, come on, wasn’t really their fault.

The more I think about Solderpunk’s idea, the more I love it. I also really loved this recent post by mntn, which seems to provide a good solution to the question of linking:

It’s a long post, but riveting. I just wanted it to keep going and going.
A short post to talk about my experience with OpenBSD. It’s not a guide or anything, just some rough thoughts. Somehow, working with OpenBSD gives me the same comfortable, distraction-free feeling I get browsing Gemini.
In previous posts, I mentioned how I’ve started trying to learn a bit more about shell scripting in my free time.
This was due to the simplicity of Gemini, and the ease of working with Gemini files in the command line.
I joined Cosmic Voyage a while back. I really love the system there for updating you ship’s posts. You type ’log’ at the command line and you are presented with a series of options for logging your entry.
‘Blop’ is a small *sh script by Drew/uoou/friendo.

It is a sort-of ‘static site generator’. I came across it when looking into things like Hugo and Jekyll (neither of which I ended up trying, so my only experience with ‘static site generators’ is blob), through a video by HexDSL on ‘workflow’.
After only a month of exploring Gemini, it’s already leading me, happily, outside my comfort zone.
This evening I finally sat down to learn a (tiny) bit of sed, in order to create a script that would update a ‘quote of the day’ section on my homepage.
