Pinned toot

From Dashie, with love 

In the bright, windy morning, the website said that the letter was still waiting to get airlifted from France.

But, the tall man in the brown shirt, the postman, appeared at cjunior's just as the Sun peeked above the zenith.

The captivating smell of the plastic cover, presents, filled the air as he placed it on my palm.

"It can't be!"

I opened it slowly, with laser precision, enjoying the essence.

'La Poste, France'- said the seal, marked on the second of March.

Inside was seven cards, photos printed with love, from a place 5000 miles away.

The words were as beautiful as his toots, touching as I thought it would be.

The picture of Seine looked magical and Maât's, the cat's coloured eyes appeared to be shining.

My heart was melting as I skipped through those colored photos.

It's been more than an year since I joined oldbytes, and the vibes I created with people all across the world are just incredible.

Thanks, @dashie

A branch upstream got deleted and when I tried to pull from that, I received an error related to something with the refs, which I think is sort of misleading and made me look up about a number of other problems.

I don't know, maybe it makes sense.

FLoC away from Chrome is simply the best headline I've seen today

Rewrote the 100R website as an extremely simple wiki(200 lines of C89) with redlinks, templating and includes support.

Anyone interested in creating a static wiki, and learning a bit of C at the same time, might be interested in forking it to build their own wiki.

Lemme know if you have any question~

Google Slides doesn't have the Insert Audio option on Firefox, but it's there on Chrome :angery:

Had read about those couple of guys finding about the two undocumented x86 instructions and felt absolutely shaken by that, to be honest.

Might rewatch that 'Unlocking God Mode on x86' talk from DEFCON tonight and slip into sleep thinking about what all nasty stuff Intel must've had put into our chips.

I think Telegram Desktop v2.7- the latest update sort of created another .desktop file or something. I have two options for telegram on my application launcher, now

At least, my professor agrees that him talking about how classes and OOPs is over glorified is a rant

imagine being one of those people whos interested in one thing rather than eight or nine hundred things

Is there a comprehensive, yet beginner friendly blog post on how to use the top command?

I saw the ending scene from a movie called Jojo Rabbit on instagram and it was so wholesome and it looked like the movie is a masterpiece.
I'll try watching that obviously, when all of these tests are complete.

I think Hacker News thread getting filled with meaningful and sometimes conflicting insights and comments, in less than an hour is pretty amazing.

I don't know whether I should think about researching and buying a good keyboard now or wait for System76 to launch their keyboard.

It looks like Zen Kernel v5.10.12 broke my headphone input.

I tried a lot of things and lastly I booted back to vanilla linux and it works over here.

This is the first time I'm having issues with Zen.
Maybe it's the recent update, or something else.

I just stuck some folded paper under my unresponsive keyboard keys that some ants ate and now it's working fine!


FSF's article on campaigning for Free BIOS is actually kind of nice.

I was thinking, one can fork linux from torvald's account on GitHub, do some stuff, and then get GitHub actions to build the kernel for you, right?
