Folks, always, ALWAYS, physically disconnect your Linux hard drive before running a Windows version upgrade. Don't be that guy. And by that guy I mean me.
I'm pretty sure it's happily reformatting my Linux hard drive simply because it's there. I didn't ask for it, I didn't confirm it, but oh boy, I'm gonna get it.
At least I get to shake my fist at Microsoft again...
Going deeper into another emacs hole, I'm realizing that even though I had Ivy installed for years, I barely used its full features.
I'm reading through the manual again and again but I just can't grasp what is being said. I need a visual.... Watched Prot's video and I still don't get it. There's a block here.
I need to keep looking through the links. Many of those are low bit-rate (96Hz) which is not what I'm looking for... Streaming radio can be higher quality already, and I'm trying to get flac files (lossless) for classical music.
But, maybe. Will keep going.
Me going back to mastodon after an hour and a half of working on a project:
"Oh, funny bug, Mastodon shows (18) in parenthesis as if I got 18 mentions... probably just posts in my main feed... "
"wait, what? I have 18 comments for my questions about classical music?!?! what what whaaaaaat"
Well ok then! I'm gonna catch up and read all the comments and tips! THANKS so much guys! 😅 😄
Tried to look into #rgrep in #emacs to capture two terms, and I still don't get it. The manual seems to list all the #grep commands in emacs but there aren't a lot of examples as to how to use them. It says to use grep as you'd use it in the shell, but I can't pipe grep the same way (unless I use shell inside emacs, which is not the point).
So, any good rgrep examples out there?
This is the sort of thought pattern of large corporations that need to keep things "family friendly" which is another word for censored, with ability to see what everyone say, when and where, and blur anything that sounds or looks like a nipple, etc.
I can hear the lawyers/managers talk right now:
you mean to tell me if someone:
has a bad day and use a slur that someone else doesn't like, they can sue us (or get their parents to do so) for millions because we allow that kind of content on our product?
Fix this shit right now.
This makes me think of Starwars:
"Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."
Exercising at home is working out for me.
I do a short workout each morning, and a short workout each evening, sometimes I switch to a run outside.
In turn, this makes it easier to do. There's no "mehhh I need to go to gym again" resistance. I can do the exercise as I write my journal, post here, or play video games.
That, in turn, means I can exercise much more often (daily), and that in turn, leads to more advanced workout, which leads to results.
In short: it works.
JTR. This is.
emacs, org-mode, linux, DnD, gaming... also coffee, exercise, lifestyle, photography.
