I live in North Carolina, United states. I enjoy pipe smoking, music, and hanging out with my wife and kids. My interests include music, coding, Linux, gaming, and open source things in general.

Some of my favorite music

Amon Amarth:

My git stuff:

My Ko-fi:

Power is still on, not having it for 2+ weeks really amps up the appreciation... lol amps.

The side affect is now every sound in the house that I'm not expecting makes me panic briefly. Even the flick of a light switch from near the breaker box...

The outlets have been working for nearly an hour.

If anyone is in the area this Saturday, our shop will be open from 9am-7pm for Holiday shopping! We also have some items in our online store at

Beach Mart store front

The electrician comes today in approximately 10 minutes. Finally the nightmare may be at an end. 😂 It will be great to have electricity in the living room again. Fingers crossed.

@fireborn lol I was way over thinking the ratpoisonless configuration. Once I realized it would actually be simple, it took me about 10 minutes to write. Then I spent about 35 more minutes tracking down a really obvious bug in the yesno dialogs.

@dgoodmaniii toot is awesome, especially for scripts.

@fireborn I updated the battery status script just a bit so that it doesn't rely on ls which can be different on different systems. I also did some string manipulation so it would read "Battery 0:" instead of "BAT0".

If you have time, take a look at it and tell me what you think.

@fireborn It's all good. I certainly do appreciate all the work.

@fireborn We are merging the key conflict detection. I sent you a reply on github. Basically, for things that present dialogs, use yad instead of zenity. Also for short things like battery info, you could just make a key binding and speak the information with speech-dispatcher instead of using a text box.

Thanks for all the help. ☺️

I updated some of the I38 scripts. Bugs are quite possible, so let me know if you notice anything weird when using the window list or when moving between workspaces.

@fireborn Pull request received and merged. Thanks 😀

@fireborn I haven't received any pull requests. If nothing else, you can wormhole it to me.

Anyone know if jami-qt is wayland only?

@fireborn Yeah, AGM is supposed to cut out the need for virtualization and make it where you can play games on your system without a whole lot of bother and dealing with inaccessible installers.

@fireborn That would be great. Is parallels something I should suggest to the people who are having trouble with AGM?

@fireborn It’s supposed to work on the M1. I have heard about people playing stuff on them at any rate, and someone wrote up instructions for the wiki.

Anyone out there good with the internal workings of Mac OS and bash? I am looking for someone who is willing to help with audiogame-manager development, specifically making things work as much as possible on the Mac.

I really don’t know much about them, and it sucks that Mac users are getting second rate support when they run into problems. My tech support for the Mac starts and ends with, “follow the wiki.”

Dembe did great getting his picture took with me. Makes for an awesome profile pic.

ATTENTION EVERYONE WRINGING THEIR HANDS OVER “ ADMINS CAN READ MY DIRECT MESSAGES”: have *always* been able to read your and DMs unless encrypted, including at the big and Internet providers. We used to have t-shirts that said, “I READ YOUR EMAIL.”

It’s just hitting now because you got used to places where the admins were kept away in their cubicles and data centers instead of greeting you at the front door.

@kyle that looks neat. I like sourcehut pretty well too, but this is a shared project, so it was either gitlab or github, and github is better these days. I know that sucks, because open source is always better, but they really have wrecked their accessibility, and javascript required to read a simple text file is just plain dumb.
