Lost and found; rupture and repair.

I had a slow walk with @gueorgui last week. It’s been awhile because of the lockdown, and it felt good! I wonder if the lockdown allows us to see the world from a rather humble perspective😉

I received the laptop for my new job today and installed NixOS on it. I'm not going to have anything dramatically new to say: I'm enjoying the configuration process. Might start using it on my personal laptop as well, if it ends up working well over the next moth or so.

Someday you will look back and know exactly why it had to happen. Photo taken by @gueorgui

I'm starting a new job tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Calibrating my displays with DisplayCal now. I’m watching the processes in htop because the UI doesn’t really tell me what’s happening (the screen that’s being calibrated is black)

Learning the intricacies of i3 layout management and feeling THE POWER.

Dis, Masto, mes migraines deviennent invivables. J'ai un très bon traitement de crise qui supprime la douleur mais mon dernier traitement de fond en date est complètement inefficace. Je ne connais pas de bon médecin ici, à Toulouse. Le seul que j'ai vu ici était nul a chier, ne m'a pas écouté et m'a prescrit un traitement de merde.

Donc, voilà, je fais appel à toi, Masto. Si tu connais un bon médecin pour les migraines, je suis preneur.

I'll add these to the description and documentation shortly. Please boost if you'd prefer to donate to the other platforms instead of Patreon!

It's been a few days since I've switched to i3 on my work machine and it's working well so far!

- Multiple monitors and bluetooth have been working out of the box.
- Running ibus helps me to switch keyboard layouts (I bound it to super-space)
- I've managed to set up a compose key easily with `setxkbmap -option compose:ralt`
- I'm using pavucontrol to manage audio, but there are probably better ways.
- I also started using Qutebrowser more, and I'm enjoying the more keyboard-focused life.

I always considered myself extremely bad at maths, and this book looks amazing: "If you want your career to grow beyond shuffling data around to meet arbitrary business goals, you should learn the tools that enable you to write programs that captivate and delight you. Mathematics is one of those tools." pimbook.org/
