Decided to revamp my "now" page and make it journal by month (technically starting with last month) and archiving the previous months' entries.


Not a FOSS app, but a cool convenient way to stream my Bandcamp collection using WebDAV interface on my nextcloud drive. Pretty cool!


Been a while since I did a re-design. It's not a plain white background anymore; just wanted to add some personality :P

Let me know if I missed anything!

Well this is fun, got Dino IM working on Windows 10 using WSL with GWSL[1]

Going to keep tinkering with GWSL to see what else I can get running :D

Funny turn of events, as I was writing my next blog post on how I was planning to use OneDrive with Cryptomator (FOSS client-side encryption software), I ran into this issue:


TLDR; Microsoft will flag your client-side encrypted files as a false positive for ransomware and ask you verify it. Although users suggest that Microsoft doesn't actually delete the files after you verify, I really don't want to risk it.

I guess I'm not moving cloud services now (but I will revise my upcoming blog post to be cloud-service agnostic on how I use cryptomator)

Fediverse friends: I'm looking to sell a rebuilt Durgod K320 TKL mechanical keyboard to someone in CONUS. I rebuilt this for fun and would like for it to go to a good home :)

- Durock Plate Mount stabilizers (Legs clipped, lubed with SuperLube + Permatex); "Band-aid" Modded with silicone adhesive stickers under plate housings
- Flashed with VIA firmware (basically allows you to remap any key on the keyboard with function layer support)
- PE foam between plate and PCB
- Shelf liner under PCB
- "O-ring" between tray mount posts and PCB
Comes with DIY coiled cable, usb-c to usb-c cable, box, keycap puller, dust cover and original box.

DM me if you're interested :)
