Opera GX: I don’t know what a “gaming browser” is or what it can do, but I do know that I neither want to nor should browse when I’m gaming.

It’s interesting to see how my family naturally tilts/moves the waking & sleeping hours of the day if not controlled by work or school during vacations: getting up three hours later and going to bed two hours later than usual, effectively giving everyone an hour more sleep than on normal work days.

@forteller @hallvors Lar halve hagen på hytta vokse vilt store deler av sommeren (mange blomster for bier og humler), men bruker ljå en gang i blant. Burde sikkert slipe ljåen for det er litt slitsomt. Aldri testa sigd, hvor får man tak i en om dagen? Jernia gir null treff.

Been on the Fediverse for for 2-3 years, but never tried Peertube. What are the “best” servers? Mainly watch Youtube for tech/Linux/FOSS, PKM/Emacs/Obsidian/Logseq, gaming, philosophy, academic stuff and some politics. Gave Odysee a spin again, but a lot of right wing bs over there. #peertube

One of the nice side effects of going plain text and ditching proprietary formats for work/notes/writing/PKM is that you realize any old laptop with a Linux distro will get the job done, you don’t need the latest or yesteryear’s hardware. Saving money and saving the environment from e-waste.

@manton I see, yeah I'm on 14" Thinkpad right now and I can see it needs space to scroll to be able to view the lowest part of the menu. Nice to hear that it is solvable, hope it can be implemented, thanks for your reply!

On the web version of micro.blog: Wish there was an option to lock the left sidebar so that it doesn’t move when scrolling the timeline. After scrolling down it takes forever to get back to the menu. I know I could reload the page with Ctrl+R but imo the menu should not move. #microblog @manton

Drunk was a Norwegian punk rock band active between 1994-2006. I saw them live at Blitz and other venues a couple of times. I even have some 7" records somewhere (my vinyl collection has been tucked away for a long time). Very happy to find this track online, I haven’t heard it in ages!

The general idea of health in Norwegian society (I think it applies elsewhere): “Everything is fine until something breaks and you get really sick, then we will do something about it and (maybe) fix you”. Health is more than and does not equal the absence of illness and disorders, ask the WHO. #health #men... conatusprinciple.blog

Woke up slightly shaky to this world today and read Timothy Morton’s conversation with Brian Ruppert on mysticism and totalitarianism and it was almost too much. It reads like a Ginsberg poem sometimes. Mysticism and Totalitarianism At least the news from the election in France is good.

The new revamped version (2.7) of Primary Theme for Obsidian by Cecilia May is out and available for download! It looks really good, Gruvbox-ish colors, lots of big and small improvements to the UI. Use it with the Style settings plugin. Primary Theme #obsidian

You know what would be a useful browser feature? A small icon next to a URL indicating how resource heavy the web page you are about to open is. While waiting for my main computer I’m running an old laptop with limited RAM these days and some of these web pages are gigantic making my browser freeze.

Summer vacation at last! I’ve been staying at my parents allotment garden with the family, picking weeds, relaxing and learning #emacs Orgmode. I’m finally making some progress on the matter. But: How do I post from Orgmode to Micro.blog? And how do you #PKM people organize your images within Emacs?

@frank Hi Frank, came over this post while searching for a solution to the same challenge: posting to Micro.blog with Emacs. I'm trying to do as much as possible in Emacs/Org-mode these days, it might replace Obsidian for me, but it's so much to take in and learn. Did you find a solution to the org-to-md + remove frontmatter problem? I can always just do a regular org to md conversion in Emacs and then yank and paste the post on Micro.blog but I was hoping to find a smoother solution. I have searched for packages but have found none. We need a package like the Micro.publish-plugin for Obsidian :)

@natureworks Yeah I feel Koala hit the right balance between features and easy of use and also a general good design for a mobile OS. I've made som really cool stuff on it and it's a lot of fun. When it comes to hardware I am an Elektron-dude mainly, I have promised myself not to buy another Elektron-box/instrument before I actually finish more music. 😀

Obsidian + Emacs/Orgmode-users: What are the best workflows for using Obsidian and Emacs in tandem/together/somewhat connected? What file format have you opted for (md or org)? Plugins/packages? Use cases and roles for the different software? How is it working out? Curious. #emacs #orgmode #obsidian

@KimberlyHirsh Yeah definitely, and especially in continental philosophy that’s still base itself on commentary on the classics in giant tomes, analytic philosophy is more like “here is my paper on X, everything you need to understand or critique it should be within these 10-20 pages”
