Anyone here use Linux for fun and profit?

I'm currently running debian with dwm as my window manager. I was curious to see what all the hubbub was about when it comes to minimalism and I gotta say I like some things about it. However, I'm still not fully convinced it's the end all be all of desktop computing or anything. There are still plenty of programs I like to use that are considered "bloated" by true minimalists.

Overall I'm more productive on my Linux system than I am on my Windows system. It feels good to know all the keyboard shortcuts in my system and be able to program new ones quickly and easily through config.h, and to be able to launch many programs near instantaneously. And the tiling and workspaces? It's absolutely gorgeous. I love having control of where everything goes without having to much about with window borders. I love having a group of programs open dedicated to performing a certain task, and then being able to instantly switch to another group of programs by just pressing alt+[num].

The only long update I can think of is when updating a old device that hasn't been updated in years. Yeah that first update can take awhile.

GNU/Linux stuff is the only thing that keeps computer stuff interesting for me. I work as tech support now but I plan to move into sysadmin and devops stuff in the near future. My O/S is arch with dwm as the window manager.

I think the illusion that has to be broken in order to really break into (most) programming is that you are rarely asking for more complexity than printing data or graphics drawn to screen, performing rudimentary calculations on a dataset or actioning user inputs in some shape or form. That being said, there is something very special that comes from dedication and creativity/ingenuity to create something really impressive to view or use. From a user's perspective, a video game seems like it's doing incredibly complex things; in reality much of its content is a series of conditional actions that follow one after the other. Visuals/animations play into this illusion as they improve realism. Engine builders and those on the cutting-edge of technology would be where to look for the most incredible coding abilities, but the vast majority of content you come across could be understood and recreated by most who gave it serious effort. Apps and indie games being the most viable areas to start out with.

unity sees too much like a clusterfuck that needs countless hours of usage to be able to do anything with it

 No.53024

the problem i'm facing with unity is coming up with game ideas that are both suitable for me and interesting to create. it is extremely easy to learn and make examples for anything in unity, but putting it all together, having everything structured and organized, code that doesnt turn into a mess after a month… thats the hardest fucking part and it pisses me off because i dont think ill ever improve at that. im thinking game jams are the way to force yourself to make simple dumb stuff

some times when your project gets to be a mess it can be therapeutic to start from scratch. It may seem gone, but all the work you did in the original project has taught you better how to build it, and starting from scratch will give you the freedom to build away from your original failures.

But I do get you. The most frustrating time I have in 3DCG programs is trying to reverse an operation I did like 200 events ago. Being able to reverse simple edits without just hitting ctrl-z is hard.

Anywiz here a fan of the good old plastic crack?

I've been collecting for about 3 years now and I haven't regretted it a single bit (save for some exceptionally bad kits)

I enjoyed it when I was younger because of the low skill floor that made it easily accessible, and now that I've learned how to become a better builder I've found some genuine joy in applying my skills and making my own customised kits, my only issue is how much this hobby can cost sometimes, but I think that staving off my depression for an hour or three is worth the price of admission.

Mostly just things that I couldn’t find anywhere else. That’s what’s above about them, they’re easier to produce so you get a lot more variety in what’s available compared to gunpla. For a starter kits I bought a little jigabachi from GiTS from e2046. Though like I said they’re still all shelves until I have the space to paint them and make a little workshop for them.

I need to start working on dioramas again. I've hit a huge slump in modeling and been struggling to climb out of it. I'm thinking of trying some Zoids to freshen things up but I don't know if I'm just getting old. Seeing people 3D print a bunch of shit to add to kits is disheartening. It's not the same hobby any more and it's become this weird after market fuckfest of products and now 3D printed add ons.

I get recommended fairly obscure videos on a regular basis, I think. I'm usually logged in to YouTube when I search, if that matters.

IIRC that Dr Jonas video was recommended to me after I watched the other one posted right above it, and that one was recommended to me after I watched a video from the popular channel "Closer to Truth."

I tried to read up on Traditionalism at the library after seeing it discussed in Houellebecq's novel "Submission." I gave up too quickly because it mostly seemed like a bunch of goofy, eccentric nonsense for jaded intellectuals. But I'm now having another go at it and I found this interesting YouTube channel that's putting out high-quality videos on Julius Evola's "Revolt Against the Modern World."

This video here is a Q&A on Traditionalism and Evola, which I think should be viewed first before watching her Evola series proper.

I don't know how I developed it but I have been smoking cigar occasionally ever since I was 19. I'm well into my 30s now. Again still not sure where I got the idea.

Nowadays I only buy cigars from airport duty frees when I'm returning back to old country. I'm currenlty living in California and man I hate the smoking laws. Can't smoke anywhere, can't even smoke in my rental due to the fucking non smoke clauses which are in almost every agreement. Unless you buy a house in california you are more or less stuck.

Still, I'm happiest when I'm back in my mothers shitty home in my old country, with the coffe cigar and chocolate I bought for myself and the tea I bought for mom. Nothing beats the feeling of taking a shower, playing vidya on your old childhood room with cigar and coffee.
It is some kind of a ritual.

>implying any other kind of traveling would be encouraged here.

I made up my mind. I'm free from wageslaving for about two weeks and I've decided I'll travel somewhere. I'll use a car, and I plan on an approximate one week travel through my country. I haven't picked destinations just yet, still floating some ideas around.

Does anyone have experience with this? Any tips, things I should prepare for, that I should be extra careful with?

Basically, for me, when travelling I have to be sure all my costs are covered and I'm not relying on any help from anyone because no one is going to help me. I also have to use hotels exclusively since AirBnB hosts can be pricks if you seem off and won't accept you or boot you when you get there. The whole sharing economy/hippie backpacker/hostel shit is really bad for people who aren't social.

Have any wizzies mastered this art or it this simply a normtrend in order to sell books? (ironically)

When we think about why we read and how we retain information, we must break it down into:
> - Topics
> - Techniques
> - Arguments
> - Conclusions

There may be more categories but that on a basic level will give you the information you retain from a book.

So is speed-reading just spooky or can it reliably reduce my book reading time down to a single day for 300+ pages?

I've studied it for some time, the incredible claims such as "2000 pages a minute" usually refer to skimming through books you've already read. It's probably possible to go from, say, 150 pages to 600 or so, I don't really believe it's possible to go beyond that unless you are some sort of savant.

But how does text actually get memorised depending on the speed that you read it?

Are their any shitty youtube animation guides on how this process works?

Like you read something at normal speed, retain 50%, double your reading speed, retain 10%

What's going on in the brain?
