For the next week I’m in New Zealand attending linux.conf.au. If you’re there too free to say hi. I’ll be the dork with a Rust powered digital conference badge attached to his bag.

Hi everyone, does any of you have experience with #Guix? Would you recommend it for a work laptop?

I'm asking cause I read it's sitll in beta.

So, overall: very happy with Void Linux. Some issues caused by a) Broadcom hardware in an Apple machine and b) me tinkering with things I don't know enough about, but other than that, feels very modern, fast, and tinkerable. Wouldn't recommend for the average home user (it does *require* tinkering and lacks polish in places), but like it myself.

Although maybe I'll just keep an eye on it for now:

> As of version 0.16.0, the Guix System Distribution (GuixSD) is not production-ready.

After reading this informative, if a little biased post about Guix and my friend’s recent post about NixOS I’m curious to give them a try.

GTK 3.24.3 is available. And here is an update on theme changes: blog.gtk.org/2019/01/14/theme-changes-in-gtk-3/

Hey. HEY. Listen up, people doing hobby stuff.

If you share your work, it's okay to want to get paid for it.

Even if it's stuff you give away in other forms or to individuals. Even if it's built on the free work of others. As long as you're not violating a license somewhere, you do nothing wrong by charging to cover your costs working on things, or building things, or maintaining things, or creating things.

We all need to get by. Giving stuff away is great. It's not *required.*

I updated my zpool last night and now I can't boot (I updated bootcode too). I can boot off the installer and access the pool fine, it seems to be missing the bootloader or something (although I can see it in the EPT). I'm sure this is fixable but I don't have the motivation for it now. I'm backing everything up and then I'm going to clean install Arch + ZFS on this machine.

I’m a generalist with 15 years professional experience and engineering/computer science degrees. Full-stack Ruby, ReasonML most recently with a fair bit of Rust on the side.

Looking for a role in Melbourne AU or remote friendly. Would love to work a bit lower down the stack, systems level, embedded, OS, networking for example. Want to work for a business that values quality and correctness, not just deadlines and piling on technical debt.

Pls boost for reach 🙏

Having a bit of crisis of conviction regarding my use of FreeBSD on the desktop this morning...
