Manjaro, here I am. The install/setup was super smooth till now, the Arch/Manjaro community is impressive. Almost everything works out of the box, and in a very efficient way. I hope my future self will continue to agree :)

I spent too many hours trying manjaro-i3, setting up * almost * everything I could before realizing that I was too far from the real things I need to do right now. Back to basics, a fresh and clean install of ElementaryOS to get my stuff done. Happy to be back.

I love using Linux (ElementaryOS) every day since I installed it on my macbook several months ago but the heat it produces worries me a little more every day, I don't want to damage the hardware. Advices?

Current situation: calculating the soil moisture level using a homemade humidity sensor.

Successfully using entirely self-hosted+federated Riot/Matrix/Jitsi/Etherpad/PeerTube to host lectures, teleconference with students, answer questions in chat, and collaboratively edit their code. Write-up is incoming. Once I take a nap.

My favorite part about using open source software is definitely interacting with maintainers. It's nice to see the humans behind the tools you use.

I am catching up with my documentation, I'm currently writing about electronics design. While enjoying my new Regolith configuration (i3wm) :-)

During this period of video calls, I realized that my webcam (macbook) is not working on . Hum. And yours?

It's official, it's quarantine for at least 3 weeks at Fab Lab Barcelona. Weird times.

Wow I just realized that all the Mutable Instruments modules are fully open-source! Did anyone here try to actually build one from the sources? It looks per-fect!
