    This seems interesting, I’ll definitely give it a try. I’m currently using Regolith linux which seems similar to sway as an i3 alternative. I personally enjoy it over i3 since it’s super convenient to use out of the box. Curious how this compares.

      Regolith is just nicely configured i3 with gnome session (and compton).

      It’s pretty good IMO, the gnome session integration makes it much more usable out of the box to sway. On the other hand… it’s still X with all it’s problems.

      I have a vintage vinyl player that I’ve been repairing. It’s just not as cool without auto return.

        It would be cool to have technical book review gatherings and recommendations. I’d enjoy that.

          Would be super fun. Have been part of these informally in the past, including reading Godel, Escher, Bach.

            Oh man I’ve been trying to finish GEB for years now. Such a struggle to push through.

          Agree, vim is great until you need to work between multiple files. Then a ton of complexity is involved to work between files. I like my current setup where I use vim for single/small files and then VSCode + vim plugin for projects.

            I think it highly depends on the user. For me working with many files in Vim is a breeze and I do not see any disadvantages or reasons to switch.

            Oh man a lot of my friends have started using chess.com more. This is very dope.

              Have been using Fish for many years now. Ease of use is truly amazing, and I think it’s great for beginners-experts alike. The lack of POSIX compliance does hurt sometimes, but things like bass really help with compatibility. I do miss using sudo !! though.

                I use a ctrl-s keybinding for that, which is even faster that sudo !!. You might find it useful:

                bind \cs 'echo ''; echo Executing sudo (history -1); eval sudo (history -1); commandline -f repaint'
