🤔 What's best for a new desktop computer with GNU/Linux nowadays? I'm looking for performances (CG arts/Krita), only Free/Libre drivers and around 1K€... Hard to find trusty infos... If you have advice/recommendations, pls lmk.👍

Dreams 

Escapism is my mind' way of dealing with extreme stress, but it makes for some lovely dreams.

My first dream was involving me in my childhood town/home driving around with a writer on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict (who looked like Karl Fogel) and also Nathan Fielder.

My second dream was a combination of Frasier and The Good Place. staring Kelsey Grammer on a date in a restaurant with a beautiful woman and wacky mishaps in the restaurant around her food and getting her back to Earth.

555 Books sold since the release a week ago! Thank you 🎉 My 'Special Launch Offer' sale ends in ten days. Will it reach 1000? That would be amazing. Get them while they're cheap 🙂 davidrevoy.com/shop

Has anyone here set up and used ldap? I'm thinking of using it as authentication for my jitsi instance but have never set it up.

The guides I see online are mostly about AD and Unix authentication.

Any guidance?

frustration, customer service 

Just so the whole story is here...

The website said to delete the server, I had to call customer service.

The first customer service rep asked for my customer ID and PIN, which you get from the website.

She then made a customer support ticket- something I could do from their site.

The second one wanted the name of the server, and then send me a ticket on the website where I had to reply "I agree".

All the credentials I provided were from the website.

Rackspace has really changed.

I have a server with them that needed deletion (it was my old mail server).

They made me call in to their call center, where I spoke with two people.

They required that I be logged into the website and read them information from the website to them.

When I asked why I needed to call, they said it was "added security".

But all I provided them was information that was available from the website, so there is no added security.

Next week I'm going to add DTMF generation so you can call out to a phone conference.

someone posted a thorough guide to doing raymarching in #fennel and #love2d

andreyorst.gitlab.io/posts/202

it's a lot more sophisticated than the gritty wolf3d-style raycasting algorithm I blogged about last week, and mixes in bits of Fennel tutorial at the same time as being a graphics tutorial. a fun read.

love to see this stuff pop up in unexpected places.

When I saw the “Open Letter to Apache #OpenOffice” by #LibreOffice developers, I felt for them:
blog.documentfoundation.org/bl

Two days later, this “answer” suggests that #Apache is actively trying to harm the development of a free “office suite”:
blogs.apache.org/foundation/en

Shame.

Health, SAD 

One thing I didn't know was that Vitamin D supplements effect Magnesium levels. Upping my Magnesium seems to have helped the spasms, etc.

And going on light therapy again is regulating my sleep. Always October...

I'm excited! Tomorrow will be the big release of the English books of Pepper&Carrot (3 comics and Artbook). Stay tuned!

I really wish I could be in Vancouver with my fiancee right now.

In the meantime, this five year old clip from Last Week Tonight will have to do

The post I made on Twilio has really helped my self-confidence and helped put me on a path of recovery from humiliation and being made to feel small.

Realizing that I can just buy a new light therapy lamp, rather than struggling to keep the one I have standing upright every single day.

Wondering if one day I can fulfill my dream of playing Xybots online in real time with friends.

And or in VR :)
