@publius needless to say that here we firmly believe that Romanesco broccoli is the quintessence of Broccoli :P.
P.S. I'll take a picture of Giordano Bruno's statue for you, next time I see it.

also released a slight update to #ryudo: v1.4.1

fixes the implementation of the usleep() wait when you spawn a terminal by keyboard, before it reshapes it. mysteriously broke after I upgraded my system.

additionally, I updated the manpage which I forgot to update in line with the readme at v1.4.0

Switched to #st for my #terminal

Applied the scrollback ringbuffer and mouse-altscreen patches, and customized the cursor to mimic the #plan9 bone cursor (cursorshape 9 ofc). It has the same behavior of changing color depending on if it's the active window or not as my #acme fork :>

two translucent suckless terminals, showing a plan9-style bone cursor; the active one in front has the cursor in turquoise, and the inactive one in back uses the regular fg color for the cursor

sometimes less experienced programmers will tell me that i'm like super smart or something, when i can write out a program that works. idk maybe i am smart, but being able to write some logic down in a javascript component isn't even a hard computer problem. you just have to know how to use your tools..

i can use ChatGPT to write components that consume some API

ok, but then you still have to be able to validate that it works AND that it conforms to the API that you're trying to talk to AND isn't talking out of its ass. which is the same amount of work as reading the docs and writing the program yourself!

  • Coffee and/or breakfast at the office
  • Work
  • Lunch at 11:30–12:00, till about 12:15–1:00
  • Work
  • Coffee again
  • Leave at 4–4:30
  • Don’t look at Slack/email until the next morning

One of the fun things about #honk is that every honk user has very different and opinionated stylesheets (sometimes similar to the style of their website, sometimes not)

I had to upgrade all my #voidlinux packages so the #delve debugger would play nice with all the C runtime stuff.

Sometimes it seems the package dependencies aren't declared quite as strictly as they need to be.

Why is the Subject<T> always null when I read it in the template with the async pipe? Gotta do some janky shit where I create a new Observable<T> in the Subject.subscribe() and read that in the template.
