Even if it might sound a bit overdramatic: Having a “mostly working” dwl Wayland setup now is a huge relief. 😅 It’s quite the weight off my shoulders.

There are still lots of items on my TODO list, but if X.Org were to die tomorrow, I wouldn’t be completely screwed. Only, like, 30% screwed.

In-reply-to » There’s hope regarding Wayland.

Well, I have a very basic setup going now that I can use for further experiments.

In the long run, I’m going to effectively fork dwl. I’m very glad that this project exists, saves me a lot of work. I think this is the only way forward for me – any other compositor out there requires making too many sacrifices.

The big question is: How stable is wlroots (the underlying Wayland library)? There appear to be a lot of breaking changes in each release, these are the last two releases:

Will I have the resources to keep up with that? Maybe it’s still too early to begin this journey. 🤔

There’s hope regarding Wayland.

I’ve tried dwl a few years back, but my keyboard didn’t work. This appears to have been fixed, probably due to advances in wlroots and this commit.

And look at it: It’s just about 3000 lines of C code. That is hackable. That is something that I can fix, extend, or adapt if needed. That is the way to go.

Thank goodness, finally some good news.

In-reply-to » Ah, damn … I have that nice split keyboard, which I really love (I use it more than my Model M 😅), but it’s actually two USB devices. Wayland compositors usually struggle with this. 😢 When Wayland really hits big time, I’ll have to look for another model … Let’s hope the keyboard just breaks in the meantime, otherwise it’s gonna feel a little bit frustrating.

For (my) future reference: Whether or not my keyboard works in a (wlroots) Wayland compositor depends on whether that compositor uses wlroots’s keyboard groups: https://github.com/swaywm/wlroots/pull/1771

Interestingly, this isn’t such a crazy rare scenario after all, see this comment regarding XF86MonBrightness*: https://github.com/swaywm/wlroots/pull/1771#issuecomment-515507790

There’s the european soccer cup currently going on. I sometimes watch some of those matches. As do my neighbors.

When there’s a goal, though, it takes them a whole minute to begin cheering. That is some excessive buffering. 😂

In-reply-to » Got a new pack of rosin for my double bass. There was a large bubble of air trapped inside. 🥴 It slowly made its way up over the course of a couple of days and now it finally burst. 😅

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Every time a little bit before you play. Sometimes more. 😅 It’s easily noticeable if there’s not enough rosin on the bow, because there won’t be enough friction and the bow will begin to just slide over the strings. Sounds horrible. 😂

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Indeed, it’s quite translucent. 😃

It depends on the type of rosin, though. The one that I used before is basically opaque and also much harder:

I intentionally went for the softer rosin this time, because I find it easier to use. It’s stickier and can be applied to the bow much easier.

In-reply-to » I'm still alive ! Here's a quick, brainless recap dump before I switch back to the other side:

@aelaraji@aelaraji.com What is FreeBSD’s killer feature these days in your opinion? In other words, why are you experimenting with this OS in particular? 🤔 Not saying it’s bad, don’t worry. 😅 Just curious, I haven’t had it installed in over a decade, I think.

In-reply-to » Couple of days ago I made a small patch to yarnd (this pod effectively runs main) that filtered out "inactive users", hard-coded to be LastSeenAt > 90 days and not bother fetching feeds for anything they follow. This has had a dramatic impact on the resources used by this pod (twtxt.net) -- See screenshtos.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Looks to me like this was an edit. I still have the original twt hash tuoqlua in my “cache”. 🤔

In-reply-to » These 24°C were brutal. The cow in 03 was standing in the bog, not sure why she liked this brackish water. It sounded "tchlk, schlk" when she moved around in that mud (what do you call that?). Some of these canyons, like 14, are over 30cm deep. Wow. In 15 at a height of two meters, a torn rag hangs in the tree in the creek bed. It's crazy to see how high the flood came in 16 with all the washed up stuff in the hedge.

@bender

24°C brutal? Pfff, try 33°C then, and a 53% humidity. 😂

Bah! We like it cold over here! 😂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBkOOYbPrAo
