Having fun brushing up on Git. I have a remote set up on my web server. This post is the commit to make sure the post-receive hook works.
The version control system in my head isn't as good as Git.
Cemu, the leading Wii U emulator, is now free software. Linux support is in progress. https://github.com/cemu-project/Cemu

Today is a CCR kind of day.
RIP Terry Davis. I can't believe it's been 4 years already.
I was going to say it was the second greatest, but the Epic Games GitHub Mail Disaster of 2022 was a pull request.
This is, perhaps, the greatest bug report of all time. IRC clients should specify a Gentoo-specific username: https://bugs.gentoo.org/35890
I'm currently halfway through my first Gentoo install. Coincidentally, also my first GNU/Linux install on a system with Nvidia graphics...
A 5 minute job delayed for 3 months is the McKinley Labs way.
I've been TrackPointless for 3 months, and I finally swapped keyboards with my parts T430 this morning. Oh, how I've missed you, old friend.
I compiled Ladybird, the Linux port of the SerenityOS browser. Here's a screenshot of my website: https://mckinley.cc/img/ladybird.png
A "Submit to HN" button at the bottom of a blog post is a little presumptuous, don't you think?

Happy 4th! I went all out with the website decorations this year.
Great blog post. I've been thinking about this, just couldn't put it into words. https://seirdy.one/posts/2022/06/25/two-types-of-privacy/
Lab6, the zine about itself, just released Issue 3! It's a PDF/Gemini/HTML/TeX/x86 polyglot this time. Great stuff! https://lab6.com/3
Cloudflare and the Web sites it uses to perform MiTM attacks are down in many places around the world. Rejoice!
It's amazing that Framework, a company that designed its own laptop, can't avoid breaking its RSS feed every 2 weeks. Unsubscribed!
Farside: "A smart redirecting gateway for various frontend services" like Nitter and Scribe. https://github.com/benbusby/farside
I have added an <atom:link rel="self"> to my RSS feed. I'll start including <atom:updated> as well, since the namespace is already defined.
Their <description>s aren't <![CDATA]>'d, either. They've opted to escape every single HTML <tag>.
The Inkscape RSS feed's <title> is literally "News feed". Thanks for that, Inkscape.
It's blockchain cheese DRM, too. A non-fungi-able token!

On Switching to Ed: https://atthis.link/blog/2020/usingEd.html
Made big markup changes on my website. Added <link> tags for RSS where appropriate and fixed bad HTML on blog posts. Apologies for downtime.
I improved my RSS feed. It uses HTTPS links now and it includes the full content of new posts, starting with today's.
I don't like the new scroll bars in Firefox 100 and derivatives. They make it hard to tell which parts of the page are scrollable.
Big day for privacy. Tails has been updated to 5.0, now based on Debian 11. https://tails.boum.org/news/version_5.0/index.en.html
