    I love it. It’s like Terminus with significantly better curly braces.

    Also, you have slashed zeroes, which is what all correct-thinking people prefer.

      Also, you have slashed zeroes, which is what all correct-thinking people prefer.

      I use a copy of Droid Sans Mono that I edited to have slashed-zeros. I love the font, but without slashed zeros (or even dot-zeros) it’s useless for coding.

      Terminus doesn’t render properly on Windows, which is a shame, As Spleen is a bitmap font, I’m guessing I need .fon versions for Windows ?

      1. 4

        For those that can’t (or don’t want to) edit fonts cosmix.org have a Droid Sans Mono with both dotted and slashed zero varieties.

        Arch users can get it from the AUR

        Powerline version too

        1. 1

          Yes, I think .fon is the required format for bitmap fonts on Windows. I’ve generated some .fon files for all sizes here, but I don’t have access to any Windows machine, so I cannot test them. It would be nice if you could try and report results, thanks!


            Ok I’ve had a go. They don’t render in Windows at all. :( Windows just shows ‘Courier New’ when I preview the files. Looking via HEX viewer, it seems that your .fon files are missing extra (repeated) meta-data that Windows seem to need. Thanks tho!

        For Work:

        • Designing and testing Identity Management Reporting Functionality using Microsoft Identity Manager and System Center Service Manager Data Warehousing (phew!).
        • Writing a Web Portal so users can update their own details in the Active Directory

        For Personal:

        • Building a Raspberry Pi Infrared Red relay box so I can control my PS4 with a normal IR remote (Netflix via a PS4 controller sucks). Also plan to add commands to control Hue lights etc.
        • Fixing my sunset-to-midnight Huescript for my outside Hue lights as it’s stopped working.
        • Doing some more coding on my personal website backend - http://www.Jaruzel.com

          You might want to resize those images - you are using full size 4048x3036 images as thumbnails (which aren’t clickable anyway).

          1. 7
            • Moving all my boxes of technical ‘bits’ from my Garage into my nice shiny new Shed/Workshop
            • Checking that the 1GB powerline connectors work across the new wiring from my house to my Shed/Workshop
            • …and if so, installing a spare NAS in there as an ‘off site’ backup platform, plus a WiFi AP so I can have a laptop in there as well.

              Although nice to watch, I would argue that that it’s only the display part that’s at 300 baud, not the actual surfing. He’s logging into a remote Debian shell, and surfing from there.

              1. 4

                You are right to point out this detail. To fully clarify:

                • The VT-100, being a terminal, is remotely controlling a Linux machine using the acoustic coupler at 300 bauds;
                • The remote machine does surf using a much faster and modern connection.

                Hopefully they only hide www. when it is exactly at the start of the domain name, leaving duplicates and domains in the middle (like notriddle.www.github.io and www.www.lobste.rs) alone.

                1. 43

                  How about just leaving the whole thing alone? URI/URLs are external identifiers. You don’t change someone’s name because it’s confusing. Such an arrogant move from google.

                  1. 11

                    Because we’re Google. We don’t have to care know better than you.

                    1. 3

                      Eventually the URL bar will be so confusing and arbitrary users will just have to search google for everything.

                      1. 5

                        Which is of course, Google’s plan and intent, all along. Wouldn’t surprise me if they are aiming to remove URLs from the omni bar completely at some point.

                    2. 3

                      It’s the same with Safari on Mac - not only do they hide the subdomain but everything else from the URL root onwards too. Dreadful, and the single worst (/only really bad) thing about Safari’s UI.

                      1. 3

                        You don’t change someone’s name because it’s confusing

                        That’s why they’re going to try to make it a standard.
                        They will probably also want to limit the ports that you can use with the www subdomain, or at least propose that some be hidden, like 8080

                        1. 2

                          Perhaps everyone should now move to w3.* or web.* names just to push back! Serious suggestion.

                        2. 1

                          Indeed, but I still think it is completely unnecessary and I don’t get how this “simplifies” anything
