I spent way too much time on desktop vanities today, but it was just too compelling.
Here is my very first bash script in action. It generates @regolith themes from the wallpaper using pywal.

Copyright must be abolished. The fact that anything created today will never enter the public domain within any of our livetimes proves that the system has failed. We have an obligation to exercise civil disobedience to protest the broken system. I will shed no tears for billionares caught up in the flack. They never shed a tear for the tens of thousands of people they screwed with expensive lawsuits, nor the billions they screwed out of their rightful inheritance of the collective works of humanity.

It's your obligation as a good citizen to pirate shit.

Found a rusty and bent pair of shears at the second hand shop.

After straightening them, I put the shears in vinegar to remove the worst rust. Then worked them with rotating steelwire brush on dremel to remove deep & fine rust, oiled them and finally sharpened them.

The stamp reads Würpel & Bronner, which according to [1] was founded 1865 in Germany and since 1910 no longer appears in the records, so that dates them roughly.

If you're feeling spicy, I wrote a small introduction on setting up a personal overlay.

Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design.

Finally worked up the nerve to post one of my more recent blog posts to HN

Classic Macintosh has an easily accessible fixed-point math library. Including from THINK Pascal. If you're thinking of doing 2D graphics or gameplay mechanics/physics/logic, you'll probably want to use it instead of floating point.

@faun @neauoire I still don't understand why the navigation keys don't work for the basic view 😞

@faun @neauoire Ah, I see what you mean now, faun. If I use one of the built-in Mastodon themes it feels much better because I can see the selected tweet.

The "randomness" that I was seeing in the Merveilles theme was caused by my not understanding how the movement works.

If you reach the bottom of the list it only scrolls to show you the very next toot, which is very confusing if you can't see the selection.

@faun When I originally wrote this my hotkeys didn't work at all. As @neauoire helpfully pointed out, the hotkeys only work in advanced mode, which I don't use.

But I did turn it on to try it out, and it was definitely subpar compared to Twitter.

On Twitter you press j/k and it focuses the next/previous tweet on the screen.

On Mastodon it just seems to shift your screen up and down, seemingly at random.

@neauoire Hmm, for some reason the navigation hotkeys (h, j) don't work for me 😦

Some of them do work though. Like g + h does take me to the home timeline.
