Okay wow, using Doom alongside with all of the plugins and language support options it's got really changes the entire experience.

Still gotta work through some more things, but generally feeling optimistic that I can get back into this!

Alright, so the light themes that are included with Doom Emacs are way better than any of the light themes I found for VSC. Dark themes are way more popular, and so seem to end up with better looking ones.

Interesting change of pace, and I like it! Also yes, I'm a heathen who doesn't always go for dark themes.

Got Emacs and Doom Emacs set up in my personal laptop tonight. I turned off evil mode because I prefer the original key bindings more, and got a sense of what I need to figure out next.

Still a ways to go before I could say that I’d use it as a main editor again, but so far so good.

Contemplating trying another editor besides Visual Studio Code. I've been a fan for a long time, but with recent regressions by Microsoft on FOSS, it makes me wonder if I should change my stance.

So far, some options seem to be commercial ones (Sublime, JetBrains) which look good but aren't FOSS. Would rather keep supporting open tools.

I could explore returning to emacs, but I found it was a bit too much for me to want to setup for my work setup (typical React/TS and C#).

Any other ideas?

More seriously, always feel bad for the staff has to fix those issues. Really can't imagine what it's like in that high pressure of a situation.

Wait, so do the executives at Rogers get their bonuses now or after the outage news has blown over?

For those who are interested in #tech #news communities, here is a list (today is my list day):

* Tildes (tildes.net/) - made by an ex-Redditor, it is designed to be an open source community website that doesn't rely on profits to survive. Also doesn't have Reddit's dark pattern. A very small, tight knit community.

* Lobsters (lobste.rs/) - very programmer centric community.

* Lemmy (lemmy.ml/) - heavily leftist community, and decentralised.

Doggy is audibly snoring after a long walk this morning ❤️

See this is why I should search for things. Looks like it already can do that for you, and possibly automatically.

Checking that out later!

Alright I should search for this first but I'll just write it as an idea first!

What would be nice in would be a way to define "skip" buttons in particular video files. Something like a text file where you can specify the timestamp to start and an amount of time to jump forward when pressed. The button could show up for a fixed amount of time, though perhaps it's configurable.

Anyone know if there's a way to mute someone in my timeline but still show them in lists? Just muting them seems to block both.

I'd really like to use lists more to organize followed people and bots...

Hey PC hardware folks - what's my best (read as "cheapest") option for a Mini-ITX motherboard/CPU combo right now, where performance is not a factor at all, but running as cool as possible is. Fanless would be awesome.
