Pinned toot

Hello World, I'm a geeky developer from the Netherlands.
My toots are usually about coffee, programming, foss, vegetarian food or mental health issues.

In my spare time I write, and help out at mental support groups.
Some of my time is dedicated to programming or writing music.
I'm multilingual, so say hi in your native language and I might learn something new.

Here I am, this is me, Jonas.
A typical down to earth guy from Belgium (Flanders).

There's nowhere else on earth I'd rather be than with my family πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦.

I'm a software engineer enjoying the craft, even after 20 years.
I have no particular stack preference, but I'm mostly working with Javascript, Typescript, PHP and Golang.

Tech, fantasy and sci-fi excite me.
Other things I love consuming or participating in are LitRPG, nerdcore, gaming, various tabletop RPGs and digital art.

Man, Chilly Gonzales can do everything

Glad to have seen him live twice. πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

The benefits of taking a day off and having done all of the chores you've planned is that you can take a nap during the day

Sent a package to my pal a beer reviewer, containing a very special beer ☺️

Awesome that most burger places now have decent vegetarian options. Got a burger and fries en route to my front door.

The downside of wearing double pants, is when you need to go to the toilet fast because you were in a meeting, that you have an extra layer to pull down

Hello everyone! I quit Facebook in a public event organized by our Fripost a democratically managed email and cloud server association. Since then I feel a need to distribute things around like articles I write and important events. I just don't know how this works. Where do I start? Here? I live in #GΓΆteborg#Sweden have two kids and work as a PhD studentin Cultural Studies, I do research on the #neoliberalization and #socialmovements.

Wearing double pants to battle the pain. Thermo leggings and pyjamas now. Works well except for my feet and hands ofcourse

Made indian tikka masala today for dinner. Swapped out the chicken for green paprika. Lots of cumin scent on the dish and in the kitchen :)

Pre-ordered an Indonesian cookbook, written by the brother of an acquaintance. Going to make good food in spring 2021 😏

Tropical flavoured tea, well it says so on the packaging, but I can hardly distinct the flavours.

Went to see family. Left the house for the first time in weeks other than the supermarket. Great vibe. I don't have much family, and I don't get to see them often anyway due to some distance and hard to reach living place.

Very happy to see them, and now back home safe.

Now I'm struggling to install #Searx on #FreeBSD.

sudo pkg install -y www/searx
sudo sysrc searx_enable=yes
sudo service searx start

This should start searx while `sudo service searx status` returns `Searx is not running`. The steps available here ( seem to be outdated and don't work.

Anyone got an idea? Need I just wait until new Searx package will be available?

Very much in pain today die to the cold wet weather. After work I've been laying down for 2 hours. Things are a little bit better now

So full-disk encryption on a Linux laptop is basically bullshit, isn’t it?

*gasps from the audience* *angry shouting*

Lock your computer: unencrypted
Sleep: unencrypted
Suspend: unencrypted

Hand your locked/sleeping/suspended computer to a customs agent or leave it unattended at a cafe: it’s unencrypted.

And we call this secure.

So I guess that’s the first thing to fix before we can recommend these devices to everyday people instead of Macs (see FileVault for a proper implementation).
