These days everyone seems to be rather busy being anti-this and anti-that and anti-everything-in-between.

You know what? I'd rather people tell me what they actually stand *for*, not everything they are *against*.

I've published my changes to the 3rd party tool, clevo-indicator, on sourcehut:
git.sr.ht/~pectojin/clevo-indi

It doesn't really work on any other models now, but in case anyone else has that specific model or wants to see my 2 cents on it.

Also put up some small scripts for dealing enabling/disabling turbo boost, for dealing with heat/power, because frankly who can remember what file to pour tee into?:

Bought a Tuxedo Book XP15 about two weeks ago. It's a Clevo laptop assembled and configured by tuxedocomputers.com/index.php

So far I'm super happy with it. Their control panel for setting fan profiles was... not great. But after I spent some time getting a 3rd party fan control tool working it's very nice to work with.

The OS they ship is a modified Ubuntu Budgie and I actually ended up not reinstalling because it's quite nice.

Originally thought it was some obscure race condition... But no matter how many times i reboot the VM on the same hypervisor it never loads the disks in correct order.

Curiously it seems to be caused by the hypervisor.

"Redeploying" in the control panel moves the VM to a new hypervisor and -sometimes- that causes the disks to be mounted correctly. Sometimes it doesn't.

Not unlikely to be something that's changed on their newer hypervisors so it'll eventually be the same on all of them.

Oh ffs... Azure keeps randomly mounting it's temporary disk as /dev/sda so the first disk isn't the OS disk.

Who does this? I don't even want a temporary disk but now you randomly break my ansible playbooks by mounting disks in the wrong order.

And this shit worked for like 3 years before they decided to shuffle it up.

To make matters worse there isn't even a way to determine which disk in azure maps to which disk inside Linux. So all you can do is hope it's correct. And if it fails 🤷‍♂️

It's kind of funny in retrospect that the programming language whose mantra was "There Should Be Only One Way To Do It" featured two separately maintained, incompatible, versions of itself for 11 years.

Kinda cool that you can follow commits on a sourcehut repository through RSS

@natecull What Python really needs is a good package manager manager. Something that'll update your project with each new standard package manager as it's released, and install the other package managers you need to install any package you want to use.

I bet, somehow, half of this is random npm_modules folders that snuck their way without me noticing...

I'm sure the estimate is way off, but I'm pretty impressed that I've accumulated over 200 thousand files over the last 8-10 years and that Nextcloud has been handling them without any issues for 4 of those years.

I miss the good old days, when logging into a nextcloud desktop client didn't require me to load javascript in my browser.

I can't find any way to login without this redirect and the page doesn't even work in either firefox or chromium with no addons enabled at all.

It seems to be content-security-policy blocking it, but this worked fine with password login for like 5 years.. Only thing I changed is installing a new client.

I was notified that @tateisu's Mastodon app "Subway Tooter" has received a warning from the Google Play Store citing user-generated content that "incites discrimination".

A Mastodon app does not host or promote any content. The user types the address to connect to. The responsibility of moderating resides with that server. So unless Google is going to drop Chrome, Firefox and Opera from its platform, this is completely out of line.

I still can't believe the state of Citrix Reciever on Linux today.

Seems obvious that if you have a virtual Windows desktop environment, then you'd want to be able to use it from your non-windows desktop.

But the last 2 releases of the receiver is broken. You have to install a version from 2017 to even get past the first error.

Then it doesn't respect OS ca-certificate trust, so you also have to figure out where it's ca store is and import the necessary ca-certificates before you can use it.

Everyone clamors around GitHub because it feels nice (for now). But when (and it will happen, companies move against people and community by design) they move away from people, so many tools and components of the ‘community’ will be stuck behind those doors. (v2.jacky.wtf/post/85740de7-cbd)
