With all this newfound free time I've started baking sourdough. It helps keep my mind off things.... except that 90% of baking sourdough is waiting, so then I have to find something else to keep my mind off things. In any case, the bread is pretty good.

Jesus, the literal second post I see on his twitter is retweeted from a "traditionalist" with the caption "revolt against the modern world"... you know, like the Evola book. Like the "I am a SUPER FASCIST" guy's book.

Exams were this week. Glad that's over. I think I did ok.

I've started hearing back from colleges. The first one to admit me actually gave me a full tuition scholarship so uh.... it's pretty likely I'm gonna end up there. It's where my brother goes, too.

Been messing around with dwm and other suckless software.I'm particularly surprised by just how versatile dmenu is. I've already set up scripts to use it as a power menu, a frontend to my password manager (pass), and a wifi network selector. And I'm not very good at shell scripting; someone more skilled could do a lot more a lot quicker.

Fuck the tobacco industry (and all industries) but what other people put in their bodies is none of my business

I'm curious as to how this will affect libreboot compatibility, since right now bsd on libreboot is... technically viable, but not great, from what I can tell. I would assume libreboot compatibility is a pretty high priority for the hyperbola team (though maybe I'm wrong) so hopefully we'll see some improvements on that front

If you want to read through the source code, dwm (a tiling wm) is so minimalist that you actually have to edit the source code and recompile to configure it. (Which isn't actually nearly as hard as it sounds since all the config options are contained in one file)

Currently, I'm using bspwm, which is another tiling window manager (less minimalist than dwm) and it's quite nice. I used to use i3 and it's good as well. In terms of stacking wms that are configurable and lightweight openbox is all I can think of but I haven't look into those kind much because I hate having to use the mouse

I started reading A Thousand Plateaus in earnest. It was slow to get started but now that I'm situated it's genuinely hard to put down. Reading Anti Oedipus first probably would have made it a bit easier (especially wrt the BwO) but whatever, I think starting in the wrong place is actually very Deleuzian of me.

I've taken up knitting. Been working on a scarf for a few weeks. I'm still not very good but I know I've gotten better because I can see the quality of the scarf drastically increasing from one end to the other.

I was uncharacteristically productive this week, really out of the blue. I'm currently basically not behind at school at all which is very unusual. I don't expect it to last.

I also started learning Scottish on duolingo. It's definitely a lot more limited than the more popular courses but I'm having fun with it

I think it was when r/anarchism made it the official backup (that was a thing that happened right?)

Look at the sidebar

The working class is off limits. Don't be a class traitor.

Odds are, a bike you find on the street belongs to an ordinary working person. Sure, it could be some yuppie who won't miss it and can easily buy another, but you have no way of knowing that. We're here to steal from capital, not from each other.

I generally agree that we don't need to like, abolish writing necessarily, but

orally, information can become corrupted or forgotten or manipulated, while writing is more long-lived

I think it's worth noting that some cultures have developed really reliable records of history that don't rely on writing. For example. I know that some aboriginal Australian cultures ahve systems of storytelling where iirc the veracity of a story is verified by three generations of storytellers, meaning they have reliable records stretching as far back as the end of the last ice age (far, far longer than any written records we know of). So I don't think we should discount the value of oral traditions in preserving knowledge. But yeah, there are certain types of information for which that would be a lot harder.
