Midnight Nightmare Train

I don’t want to go to my imaginary synthetic slave work. I want to go away live simply, off the earth. meditate, read, be. why do I need to be so controlled by the leviathan; this so called social contract is eating me alive. When does it end? Does it ever end? I know I want to live, but is even death a respit from this clawed hand tearing holes in me for the stitches to tie me up, tighter and tighter. These are not the threads of healthy relationships, not the threads of willing participation. These are the threads of forceful command, “OBEY OR CEASE TO EXIST!” it screams as it punctures my skin yet again with another thread. “CONSUME!” it shouts as my guts fall out, shambling around my wool socks and chairlegs. What the fuck is this? The armored corpse rumbles forward, claws poised for another thread - pulling me closer with what’s already there. It consumes me, bit by bit torn apart and reassembled. Less connected, now more of an armored corpse than yesterday. I am part of the unknowing puppeteers, unwillingly animating the armored corpse, the leviathan, our allmighty unknown god.

Using GNU stow for dotfiles

The problem I want to solve here is how to keep track of my configuration files in a sane manner. This will accomplish versioning, ease of provisioning, and make it simple to handle configuration that GuixSD does not take care of for me (yet :). I’m going to be using git, stow and make for this. These should be available in your package manager, or you could install the guix package manager and use it from there.

Ecosystems and the Universe

As I’m reading through Deep Green Permaculture’s article on ethics I realize this as I get to the section about care of the earth, while they are talking about everything being interconnected and interdependent systems, earth, microorganisms, trees, animals, clouds, climate - everything.

The function of the "oil pockets"

It just occurred to me that the oil pockets1 has a function2. And it makes me wonder what happens when the pockets, now without raw oil, should start doing something? Do we have any idea what their function(s) are?

  1. For lack of a more precise term I use oil pockets for the underground pockets containing oil before we pump it out.

  2. To be precise I should say the oil pockets probably have a function, because I don’t know. But seeing as nothing in nature is waste or useless - I take the liberty here of saying it has a function.

Increase of activity and writing

I’ve been realizing I often have something I would like to write and put on, but it’s so unusual for me that I never actually get around to doing it.

Installing GuixSD on Macbook Pro

So my previous laptop died during christmas 2017, so I needed a new machine. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a fairly recent macbook pro (mid 2012). The good: it’s got decent hardware, is sturdy, allright battery and the screen is the best I’ve ever had. The bad: it is not particularly freedom respecting, and might prove difficult to get some hardware to work well.

Adding fpm2 to GuixSD

I’ve been using fpm2 for some of my passwords the last couple of years. It’s not the best, and as far I’m aware upstream development has ceased, so changing to something better is definitely on the agenda (also known as the-evergrowing-list-of-things-I-should-have-done-last-year).
