Dear , a curated list of streams with URLs that can be fed into a player (eg MPlayer)? Many thanks, F. :) <3

RT @hpk42: Well, not to tout myself too much but I thought about this "dependency confusion" attack when I co-created devpi.net to allow to have "curated package indexes" fronting general PyPI, the Python package index.

I started looking at Autotools (specifically for packaging Guile stuff). The complexity of it... I want to cry, it's so depressing.

I know... power, flexibility, the advantages of a universal build mechanism, ... That's why I'm keen on Autotools over alternatives... but still, it's so painful.

Why can't we have simple things? :(

Guix has made it into Debian Unstable! This means Debian users can use Guix as a "userspace" package manager now! tracker.debian.org/pkg/guix

This is really wonderful! Debian and Guix both care deeply about reproducibility.

This could be a big win for user freedom on both (cotd ...)

tl;dr: Ship every FOSS project with a "guix.scm" file.

These can be used to set up dev environments with
"guix environment -l guix.scm"

Projects built using Guix as a dev environment are free from the "binary-black-box-container-only" plague, healthier for user freedom!

The Guix community is so nice and thoughtful, really an oasis in FOSS... that's not an accident though; thank you to the Guix leadership and team for working hard to make it that way.

I'm just thinking about this blog post I wrote in 2018. Because even when Twitter makes a good decision, the first sentence comes to mind: Why does the entire world have to wait on the CEO of one US company to make a decision?

Sorry to keep bothering you with this i3 thread, but here's another good one.

In a multi monitor setup, this is to restrict workspace prev/next to the current monitor: `prev_on_output` and `next_on_output`.

Added a couple of lines to my config to improve my multi monitor setup. It feels so good to be able to move entire workspaces between monitors. Filed under weekend , I guess? :D

```
# Move focused workspace to another monitor
bindsym $mod+ctrl+shift+Left move workspace to output left
bindsym $mod+ctrl+shift+Right move workspace to output right
```

I just straight up don't click on Medium links anymore because it's all behind a login wall anyway
