I had 2 hours to work on projects tonight, but instead spent that time trying to find how to rebuild kernel modules for my nvidia drivers after an update.

This laptop is the first in years that has an nvidia chip, a kernel update breaking my Optimus setup was a blast from the past.

I should really start taking notes about my system tweaks so I can fix things easier in the future!!!

@derek have you thought about using GNU Stow to manage your dotfiles?


I've made my Rofi/dmenu GZDoom mid launcher available. Now time to add the 7 other planned features to it!

Been doing some serious scripting tonight.

I now have a rofi/dmenu based Doom Launcher for Linux, so I can easily pick and choose which IWAD & multiple mods when playing.

Next up, sorting multiple engine support, only works with GZDoom at present. Fits superbly with my i3 setup though!

Very busy weekend so far. New baby came home from the hospital, and 3 hours later my cat gave birth to 4 kittens. Lots of new life in the house, and my toddler is unsure about it.

This is really putting a dent into spare time for my current projects!

@derek what happened to your podcast? I miss having your biweekly news snippets on my drive to do the food shopping

Do you use an RSS/Atom reader?

Boosts appreciated for sample size :)

BT's Openreach to build full-fibre internet 'like fury' after Ofcom move - BBC News

Excellent news! Prices may be a bit higher, but FTTP would never ever reach my semi-rural location otherwise

I like how the instructions for this prepackaged cat litter includes a step for "cat takes a dump"

Due to the pandemic, we could not get Zoku spayed. "Not an essential procedure," they said.

Well soon we will have more than just 1 cat. Very soon, looking at the size of her!

I have been far too busy the last 2 weeks as the pregnancy nears it's end, so I've picked up one of my previously shelved projects.

I've completed a 72-card deck to assist sci-fi gamesmasters & solo roleplayers, helping provide an oracle, adventure seeds, dice rolls, and even a simplistic GM-emulator into a single deck of cards.

So now browsing for print shops to make a physical copy, then I may have to make a kickstarter and see if anyone else would like it.

Strange to work on something physical!

Zoku has made friends with Captain America. My little boy won't be happy about this.

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

I've been learning video editing with flowblade, as it's something I've never really done, and learning new skills is fun!

As I had to replace the shower rail in my bathroom, and it ended up requiring some 3D printing, I decided to make a very short video of my process...

Well, this drama makes me glad I bought it on Nintendo Switch.

Shame, I found The Sinking City to be an *excellent* game, I would recommend it but the devs really should earn money from it

New phone is up and running! Now to spend roughly 17 hours reinstalling apps and setting it up exactly like my last phone!

My phone decided to go corrupt it's own filesystem and brick today. Won't even turn on. A new one is on order for delivery tomorrow.

I have absolutely no idea how I'm going to take a dump without entertainment, it's like the dark ages here right now

Just heard my entire team at work will be getting made redundant. Apparently, me and the boss have other roles earmarked for us, but until I see it in writing I am in full panic mode.

This is no time to be job hunting, especially with a baby on the way.
