NEW Project! Ever wondered what would happen if you let a tree design a typeface? Back in 2015, I carved an alphabet into the bark of a tree and documented it annually. Visit bjoernkarmann.dk/occlusion-gro to read more and download the free font!

Another tip: Every Mastodon account has RSS built in. Just add .rss to the end of the URL for your account, e.g. merveilles.town/@lrhodes.rss

That lets people follow your public posts from an RSS reader, but it's also useful if you wanted to use IFTTT to crosspost your public posts to another platform.

The amazing @htopdev@twitter.com team forward-ported that work and got it to a mergeable state! htop now has tabs! \o/

RT @hisham_hm@twitter.com

> Htop can also show Disk IO, which can be arguably very useful, but is hidden by default.

My last unfinished project when I was still active in htop was to add *tabs* to the interface, so that the user would have a more path for navigating through these additional columns:

Here comes another release.
This time it is a bugfix for our dear Carla, now at v2.4.2.
kx.studio/News/?action=view&ur

Should have been earlier, but there were a couple of things I wanted to verify first. With Carla being used now in Cardinal and Ildaeil projects, I found a couple new issues to solve which delayed it too.
But it is tagged now, enjoy! :)
