@pushcx Personally I think Guix, while less mature, is far more interesting and feels like the evolution of Nix.
The tooling is better and provides more interesting and useful features. Using Git repos as a package repo was a brilliant idea.
And with the full power of Scheme behind it you can do a LOT in Guix.

I should install System on some real hardware to give it a try. In a VM it was interesting but that's never quite the same are on-device.

Been waiting for OpenSUSE to update Guix in their repos too so I can try it on top of another distro.

Going to try and be more active again on Mastodon in an attempt to get out of my habit of just flipping between like 3 news sites when I'm bored.

Also gonna try and read more articles about random stuff that I find interesting.

@codewiz No I think it just means you're attempting to learn one of the hardest languages *to* learn.

Keep at it though!

What's a good alternative to Wordpress? I need a bit more than a static-site generator, but much less than all the bloat that is Wordpress.

Tried for the first time in a while and am really impressed. Game reminds me of the old Beta days of Minecraft that me and my friends loved.

Through in better performance and an incredibly easy modding API and mod management and I think you have something really special.

I'm considering starting to host a dedicated server.

Along the lines of pingfs, I bet you could make a usable fuse filesystem by uploading data to unlisted YouTube videos. Basically a 3d QR code (2 visual, one temporal). Gotta survive re-encoding. I wonder if they notice oddly high-entropy uploads.

@sir For the love of god PLEASE web developers DON'T TOUCH SCROLLING.

I have never met a page that did "custom scrolling" in a way that didn't feel awful. And I don't think I ever will.

I was terrified of contributing to open-source for the longest time.

Until I just did it. Forked the repo made the change and PR'd. Got some feedback made the changes and that was all.

After that I moved on. A patch here a contribution there. What made it much less scary for me was realizing that you didn't need to make a commitment to the project and that small contributions are important too.

For some reason a self-hosted pastebin is one of the things I use the most. It just makes it so easy to send documents to people.

I honestly only installed it because I saw it was supported by @yunohost but I've come to rely on it for a lot.

Ok I take it back Tetris 99 is actually really fun. Its adds the level of hectic action you see in other multiplayer Tetris games but multiplies it many times over.

On the bright side they released Super Mario Bros 2 and Kirby's Adventure for the NES virtual console.

Haven't played too much of SMB2 yet, but Kirby is blowing me away. I've never played a Kirby game before and this game has aged fantastically and is extremely polished.

Wow the Nintendo direct was kinda underwhelming. New Mario Maker is neat. They spent way too long on Fire Emblem. DQ11 coming to Switch to the surprise of no one. Of the he other stuff nothing too notable.

There is that weird Tetris battle royale... I feel like I don't need to say more.

No Animal Crossing news STILL which is getting frustrating.
