An operating system that respects your freedom

Write your own programs. use source code from the internet in seconds. update when you want to not when it tells you.
Want to run a website? cool! you can set one up in minutes.
Want to adjust your hardware to your liking? Awesome!
Want to stop or make a new feature to a program you use every day? Go for it!

Its your computer! use it how you want!

Thumbnails like that is something people have been asking about for a long time now. There are patches floating around I think, but nobody with power within the GTK project seems too interested in adding such a feature themselves. I get around that issue by using my regular file manager and drag the file I want over to the application I want it open in (that's also something that can be inconsistent, not everything supports drag and drop).

QT applications (that would be anything KDE and related applications) has a file picker that supports thumbnails. So it might be worth trying QT and KDE alternatives to the applications you use. Kubuntu comes bundled with KDE, and I'm sure you can use KDE with Mint as well.

I want to enjoy free software on my desktop systems, but I think these kinds of things makes free software a little annoying outside of CLI tools. I wish desktop environments were a lot more consistent and supported these kinds of features.

as far as the desktop is concerned I can't imagine using anything other than dwm on Linux or *BSD. a really great piece of software.

running Crux on a spare T60 that I toy around with, I like how hands off it is, and I got tired of dealing with portage when it was running Gentoo.

Arch on my desktop.

I've had Openbsd running on those machines and more at various times but the lack of (or pains with) various software made me switch back to Linux land.

Let's talk coding and software, sushis, because I don't do enough of it and I really should. Let's hear about projects you're working on, stuff your coding, learning. Trade secrets, info, tips, whatever. Programming isn't something that should be done alone in a corner.

I guess if we need a thread starter, I want to brush up on my coding skills. I want to find something to play around with, something not as mainstream as the stuff like Java and C, but will still be useful in a professional setting, something I can make usable stuff out of.

Decades ago I wrote a silly PHP snippet that would inject itself into every writable PHP file it could find. It didn't do anything else and was trivial to find and remove, but I guess it counts.

it's a little expensive for a dumbphone($60), and still runs a really basic OS. Most new dumbphones out there are running KaiOS now, which I'm curious about since they sit in a nice middle ground of functionality.

I've been meaning to pick up a Nokia KaiOS flip-phone, but I've seen some hearsay about how it's kinda buggy, but it also kinda seems to vary from device to device, which seems weird.

But the app-system seems really cool, like something I could write apps for myself since it isn't locked in to the most bloated corp-lang in existance (looking at you android). Instead just web-type stuff.

I got stuck in a loop of the first seconds of the featured video, don't know what happened but it did. Maybe it was my internet or something got funny but whatevs, just give us an update on when are you allowing others to upload some stuff and if you desire a particular encoding or something along those lines. It really helps having more info on the shows, but I somehow feel the link to the full song might get taxing (as in a chore and not fun) if you end up having a lot in the future or if there's no video with the song
In any case it seems a very nice one sushi! I like being able to see the background image and the airing shows ones with a single click too.

I was thinking it would be nice if we had a thread for sharing our own websites/homepages. Woah, here's one now! Show me your netspace sushi!

Here's mine. It's a complete mess, but I like it. It's kind of new well, technically it's existed for a little while, but I only started working on it recently, so it's missing a lot of things, and there are a few links that 404. Though it's hosted on neocities, it's only slighty Lain themed.

Hello sushi rolls

I want to launch a passive page for promoting art and have no experience whatsoever with webhosting services. What would you recommend?

The site would be build from scratch by myself in PHP and CSS and should just include the most basic stuff like a gallery, links, information material, contact info and some news, web 1.0 tier. It seems wordpress is pretty popular nowadays, but personally I don't like it and would rather stick with w3.

Hi sushi. I'm going to give a more modern answer.

If you only want static hosting (html/css/js, no sign in or registration or comments), you can just use a service like https://keybase.io/docs/kbfs/keybase.pub (more lain) or https://pages.github.com/ (less lain). With each you can buy your own domain (I recommend namecheap.com) so you can have your own URL.

Now, if you want to really have more control over your site, you should get a VPS and run your own server. You can have server code, databases for a more interactive site. And if you like you can use the same server as a media host, ventrilo server, etc.
You can host static sites straight out of Nginx (generators like Jeykll or Hugo are popular. I use http://loup-vaillant.fr/projects/ussm/, which has very few features and is very simple, which is what I need).
Or if you need a dynamic app, however you usually deploy PHP. I'd recommend Python and Flask over PHP if you're new to programming, but in the end it doesn't matter too much.

Of course, you can always start with an externally hosted static site and then jump to running your own server later when you need to. Let me know if you have any questions.
