I'm trying to build CMake on the #atari TT030 overnight, and I'm not hopeful. I've had nothing work on it lately (broken GNU Fortran, problems building IRC clients, a freakin' mess of a network config, etc.), so I'm probably going to break it down and throw it back in the closet when this inevitably fails too.
Once I forget about these problems in a year or two, maybe it'll get some precious desk space again.
But CMake might build...
#ubuntu’s upgrade process has far too much user interaction. I asked to upgrade, so just freakin’ do it!
The last time it stopped was to let me know chromium was now a snap (whoop-dee-shit, I could care less). Ugh...
The #atari TT030 has been trying to build CMake for maybe 15 hours now...
I have two laptops (Intel Core2 and AMD A4) that are both somewhat old and not particularly interesting. #netbsd video drivers do not work on either... I'm quite baffled, but not interested enough to pursue it.
The Core2 is running Windows 10 now like a freakin' dream. The AMD needs something since #OpenSUSE only actually booted about 50% of the time on it.
Thought I'd give #netbsd another shot on my dated AMD laptop, but the installer panics during boot on radeon init, so... nope.
I'd actually set up a #gemini site using GNC, but GCC with Fortran is still compiling...
My LR-87 #gemini client now shows the link in the status bar on the Windows client when moused over! Sweet! Of course, the screenshot doesn't show the cursor because... Windows.
Oooh, NetSurf 3.10 is out! My favorite browser!
The cat, on the other hand, will not be happy with this arrangement.
I think the moral of the story is to never speak online. You'll just be drowned out and/or smothered by those with more karma/friends/followers.
The Internet is like high school with its cliques and anxiety, only I have grey hair now.
Mastodon seemed like it wasn't as bad, but I think that's merely a function of my exposure here, which is negligible. I think if perhaps tried to follow more people or to respond more often, I'd still end up in the same place.
Reading Reddit just makes me sad, too. Even when it isn't my comment, the vitriol is just overwhelming, and I end up closing the page.
Same phenomenon occurs with the armchair experts on HackerNews when it isn't strictly programming-related (and even when it is).
Today was no different. A comment led to, basically, a "keep your mouth shut." My bad...
