Is it me, or Activities in KDE on Arch are not working?

Have you ever wanted to have more control over when you autoload org and when you tangle your init.org?

Well now you can have it :)

Without looking at my profile, or my history, can you guess which text editor I prefer?

Happy Hallmark holiday! I hope you get the affection you deserve more frequently, all year round, without social and commercial pressures to do so.

I'm noticing that so many password managers include OTP baked in. Is it just me or is this a real had idea?

So, I have an account - trevdev@conversations.im - I've set up Dino & Conversations as my clients, assigned my PGP key as my preferred method of encryption.

What now?

I keep wondering what it would be like if I stuck to bindings instead of using evil-mode.

I've used Vim bindings all over the place for years, and I love them. Evil works really well in Emacs but it's not perfect. I'm also willing to bet things overall would be more consistent if a larger more disruptive package were not on board.

I've installed god-mode for now, and I'm giving it a 3rd shot.

I've been missing my tiling WM but also enjoying . I have grabbed a couple of extensions to satisfy that old craving.

1. extensions.gnome.org/extension - Probably the best tiling manager extension. Lots of options! Simple config.

2. extensions.gnome.org/extension - Get rid of title bars and put that info into the shell bar instead.

It's the same keybind-y experience as i3, or as mouse free, but even with i3, you can't avoid a mouse with many apps anyway.

New year, new language. I know I've yammered on about this before, but I never stuck to it.

Me, as a Web Developer, learning Rust or GoLang as my next skilling adventure.

Played with both again. As much as I get out of Go out of the box, I really think in the long run Rust will enrich my ability to write things.

Listening to darknetdiaries.com/ has been a big eye opener. I used to think that I really understood practical consumer-level security.

The truth is, you either abstain from smart devices and software, or you're vulnerable.

I used to think Open Source was part of a golden standard for security as well. A whole community auditing code aught to be more trustworthy than xyz company, right?

Even if we stuck to the official repos for our distros, we're 1 bad update away from a 0 day.

I remember when PayPal was a nice idea, but for the most part didn't make it much easier to pay for stuff online as opposed to just qualifying for some credit card company.

Now many years later, in the midst of my family's temporary housing situation our cards got lost. PayPal has kept working by just using our accounts.

For my business and it's expenses this has been a life-saver.
