Interesting how in a period of loss of control and words you find ourself with an in studio audience narrating your actions across the parking lot and your head narrates them back. As if the universe was experiencing itself.

I would like to if they could share any resources for learning . It has been on my list for sometime and with the state of things, I would like to give it a go and see how well my interest and my abiities hold out for it.

@distrotube Just watched your vid on useful vim plugins via LBRY. I think between vifm and vimwiki, I have finally have a sensible, easy, and manageable way for learning notes, system notes, and writing notes. Best of all it works on both amd64 and arm64 unlike electron solutions. Thanks!

I am just putting the finishing touches on my new and improved setup. Just a couple odds and ends to put in and then begin working on the various bots I want to use for tools, system status, etc.

While I have used Psi and Gajim in the past, I am not sure on what client to settle on for my desktop and for the Pinebook Pro. Kaiden is not ready and Dino seems too minimalistic.

What XMPP clients are you using?

Seems linuxrocks.online is offline for now, so cant access the @ManjaroARM account to post this. So gonna post it from here:

@ashfurrow Hope things are going well for you in New York. Miss the city, but kind of glad that I am missing out on some of this mess there. Wish you the best.

While the COVID-19 pandemic is seeming to make everything come to a standstill, I have decided to make the most of my lack of work and social distancing.

I am going to take the time to get back to community, write, learn new skills, and find ways to give back. I am taking an uncertain gap as the opportunity to enrich myself and my connections with others.

I have decided to actually make use of my personal blog by sharing my efforts and hope that they inspire others and me.

Well the voting of the names for my came down to 3 contenders.

Let's name my . I have 8 names, but the poll feature only allows 4 options, so I will do it in 2 sets. The top 2 of each set will go to the final poll. Vote on both sets! Would love to read why you liked the name, curious joy.

I plan to use it for professional & personal writing, research, take it on hikes, Linux Fests, traveling, maybe a light game or few, light coding. It is for enjoying and sharing adventure. The mind's canvas from different scenes.

... This just in and I have to say it is freakin’ gorgeous. I have a feeling that once I get out and about with it, there are going to be inquiring minds that will want to know all about it. @PINE64 , thank you!

So excited! Looks like my is expected to arrive on Tuesday. Really looking forward to experimenting with it and then making it my laptop for writing on hikes, fests, travel, and more. Hopefully, I can pony up some funds to play with the and . Just imagining the possibilities that these portable opensource powers can achieve.

er pen per letter ... I guess I should now do one toot per letter. Might be better than my one toot per correction average.

Welcome to America, where you have use a new pen pen letter of your name to impeach the President. Wasteful showmanship.

Are you a and an user? Looking for suggestions for app for tracking runs, mapping, and training. What have you found that best respects your privacy and also gives you the ability to share?

In about 8 or 9 hours, I begin training again for the first time in years. I count ti as an overcoming of several years of mental and pyhsical obstacles. My goal is to hit my first marathon by October with hopefully Boston and NYC to follow.

I am considering writing an bot to go along with this. Basic functions would include seeing distance, time, current running music, and possibly insert text to speech (ala festival) encouragement into the playlist.

Hope you are all well. About to head to work but would like to formally request that if anyone happens to see my ambition crawling around, give it a kick back in my direction. Thank you. 🙂
