Sometimes I doubt I'm using the best GNU/Linux distribution for my needs, but after spending some days installing something else I keep returning back to Gentoo. One of the few things I don't like about Gentoo is that it is not a 100% free GNU/Linux distribution according to FSF guidelines. This problem however can be easily fixed in theory, but enough support from the community is needed. For the time being I'll continue to manually deblob the kernel and do some other things. Happy hacking!

I'm going to try again. Same goal: 70.0 kg. New deadline: 2017-07-14.

I failed to meet my weight loss goal of reaching 70.0 kg before today. My current weight is almost the same as 19 days ago: 74,0 kg. 😢

My current weight is 73.9 kg. My target weight is 70.0 kg. I want to reach this goal within 2017-06-24, starting now. How to do that? Well, I'm planning to eat about 1,000 kcal per day, avoiding food with energy content over 100 kcal per 100 g. Wish me luck!

To the current Turkish government: please restore access to Wikipedia; we are not terrorists.

Yesterday I finished checking my personal list of 700+ web bookmarks. I removed broken/obsolete links, replaced HTTP with HTTPS wherever possible, and fixed some tags. Have a look:

Yesterday I finished restoring i3/Qt/systemd on my desktop computer. I had to remove hundreds of unneeded packages in the process. Now my system is much lighter than before.

Remember to use the -k (--usepkg) option with emerge: it can save you a lot of time when reinstalling packages!

Good news! I'm losing weight quite rapidly... I'm now at 73.3 kg. At the current rate I need to keep eating no more than 1,000 kcal per day for at least another week in order to reach my goal of 70.0 kg.

My experiment with i3/Qt/OpenRC ends now. I'm returning to GNOME/GTK+/systemd. Since I'm on Gentoo Linux this is going to take several hours...

I tried buying all three books about Getting Things Done by David Allen on their official website, but shipping costs to my country are extremely high: 47.20 $!

Ubuntu 17.04 has been released today. I'm downloading ISO images via bittorrent right now...

I'm slightly overweight. My current weight is 76.0 kg. My final goal is reaching 70.0 kg. My short-term goal is losing 1 kg within 5 days. I'm aiming at 1,000 kcal per day. Wish me luck!

Self-discipline worked. I ran for 45 minutes. Now I feel better! :smiley:

I'm mildly depressed now, but I need to go running anyway, because physical exercise makes me feel better afterwards.

That's all for today. I will continue checking bookmarks tomorrow!

I have a lot of bookmarks in my browser that need to be checked...
