Holy shit my dumb ass just realized that a package I installed from the AUR has been keeping me on the "powersave" CPU frequency governor since I had installed it a week ago. Only found out because I kept trying to set to performance for a compile job and the freq kept dropping.

I gotta stop installing recommended/optional packages without reading what they are and do. It's bad enough that "Read the PKGBUILD before install and on each update" lasted about a month for me before I stopped.

Fediverse admin PSA 

Attention to #Mastoadmins

We are considering dropping support for host-meta and XRD support (inherited from GNU Social/OStatus) in next #Mastodon version, as the webfinger spec is enough and simpler.

As far as we know, no fediverse implementation relies solely on host-meta or XRD, so that wouldn't be a big change.

That being said, some deployments do (partly because of a guide I wrote ages ago, in OStatus times) depend on host-meta. That could be the case, for instance, if you installed Mastodon so that it is on but serving In this case, please check that redirects to, or proxies,

With nginx, this could be done like this:

location /.well-known/webfinger {
return 301$request_uri;

#Mastoadmin #Mastodev

The Compiz feels make a lot of sense now that I read about the history of the project!

Wow checked the Wayfire compositor out on a whim and I really like it! Some Compiz feels.

Wayfire is a wayland compositor based on wlroots. It aims to create a customizable, extendable and lightweight environment without sacrificing its appearance.

Playing RimWorld and as I was stripping down fallen raiders I noticed one seemed to be missing their head. Into the log I go and...

"Shiro, wielding his persona zeushammer competently, horribly slammed Valesh in the neck."

This kills the Valesh due to "a missing body part."

This very old news is very new to me and helped me to fix my alt-tab experience in GNOME.
