I will leave this here because this bit me, and so I don't forget...

If you're using emacs and TRAMP to edit files remotely, but emacs seems to hang when you type in the /ssh:user@host: part, try adding this to .bashrc:

if [[ $TERM = dumb ]]; then return; fi

Apparently fancy MOTDs and stuff can confuse TRAMP and it'll just sit there and spin it's wheels. For reference, apparently my default Ubuntu MOTD is fancy. YMMV. πŸ˜€ :cyber_heart_sparkle: :cybredragon_side:

I suppose I should make one of these.

So, I am an old ass programmer, general nerd and geek, furry, weirdo, etc. I grew up in Alaska, wandered around trying not to fall off mountains or get bitten by a moose (Mynd you, mΓΈΓΈse bites Kan be pretty nasti...). Survived. Did shockwave multimedia stuff for further education for doctors for a while. I like to chat, fiddle with game dev, write python for fun... I am currently slowly teaching myself Spanish. More when I think of things.

I'm going to put this here in case anyone else runs into this, and so I won't forget. If you're using the 'kitty' terminal and running tmux fails with it complaining about an 'unsuitable terminal' you can fix it (under Ubuntu at least, and this may help for other distros) by creating a directory named $HOME/.terminfo/x then cd into it and then do 'ln -s /home/YOURNAME/.local/kitty.app/lib/kitty/terminfo/x/xterm-kitty xterm-kitty' to symlink it. Then restart kitty and tmux should work fine.

Also I'm open to other instance suggestions. I'd prefer someplace that is well federated (though no nazi chuds please), doesn't mind geekiness and relentless furry silliness, etc.

And here's the down side of small comfy federated instances...they shut down. So, cybre.space is apparently going away. I'll probably move over to the @stux party at mstdn.social. So, if you get friend requests, yes, it's me. :blobugh:

Been playing around with the nix package manager. I'd been meaning to for a while, then got reminded about it. Seems pretty spiffy so far. Someone even made a package to make everything play nicely with fish. :cyber_heart_sparkle:



Boy that certainly didn't like the fstab entry for the windows share directory.

Least I got it back to where it will boot.

Ah, mixed emotions....

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Upgrade Available. Would you like to upgrade now?

I wish there were a way to have it examine the system and report on what this will break.

I suppose it's good that this is the weekend...

My brain has been too burned out to play Wordle the last few days. I blame stuffing it with a lot of kotlin.

Question for the assembled nerdery... Anyone ever tried printing a QR code hologram? Not the security holograms with a black and white code and hologram around it, but the QR code itself.

I'm not sure it'd actually work, but...

I am vaguely proud of myself. I'm getting good enough at spanish that I can read news without breaking out translation services every other word.
