Gemini Links 10/05/2023: tmux in Chromebook’s “Terminal” and More

  • Gemini* and Gopher

    • Personal

      • Loud and less clear

        Chilly, sunny day, here. We've more yard work ahead of us, but of a less strenuous, more decorative nature.

        Or so I was told yesterday. For all I know the plan has changed to storming the landscaping Bastille, if ya know what I mean.

      • Re: CircaDian: No Buses All Morning

        I *wanted* to reply, but couldn't find much to say, suspecting there'd likely be too much work involved attempting such in an editor I could enjoy on my goofy little Chromebook, where I spend most of my time in tmux in Chromebook's "Terminal" environment.

      • Magic swords

        In B/X related games up to halfling level caps (if you have them): what's the drawback of being a halfling? I have this discussion every now and then with players. Here's a whole blogpost that discusses fighters vs. halflings, too.

      • poof!

        if you became a child again for one day in a completely safe and loving environment, what would be the first thing you would do...?

    • Technical

      • No Buses All Morning

        Not literally. I’m referring to the fact that I’ve been posting for nearly three weeks without a response, then yesterday I got two! What pearl of wisdom elicted such a frenzy of responses? Climate change, keyboards, 3D printing?

      • I'm becoming a worse writer at the same pace I become a better Sysadmin

        "I'm becoming a worse writer at the same pace I become a better developer"

        ...where I swap out "developer" for "Sysadmin". And I am not even *that* up to snuff with Sysadmin things, just know my writing chops are sxxx (no swearing here! ;)) compared to where they likely were a few years back. But I likely gave myself too much credit for it, anyways, so...

* Gemini (Primer) links can be opened using Gemini software. It's like the World Wide Web but a lot lighter.
