As I have mentioned previously, I have started using Emacs recently as my main text editor recently – and it has slowly been creeping past that boundary to absorb more and more of my computing life. In fact, it’s fair to say that it has fundamentally changed how I interact with my computer.
As I’ve got more comfortable with the concepts of Emacs, I decided I needed to learn a bit more about how emacs-lisp works. So inline with my current interest in soloroleplaying, I decided my first project would be a GamesMaster Emulator:-
Here is my latest project – a GZDoom launcher for Linux, which runs through a Rofi/dmenu interface for selecting IWADs & modifications. This is aimed at anyone who likes Doom and uses tiling window managers. All in a simple bash script, which you can download from my NotABug repository.
As I have started using the desktop in my house, as well as my laptop, I have also started using Syncthing to keep some of my various projects, org-files and Emacs setup [see below] the same across my devices. As such, Syncthing conflicts have become the bane of my existence, so I had to work out someway to deal with them.
This should be a quick post. After spending far too much time lurking on /g/, I finally took the plunge and looked into the world of Tiling Window Managers.
I generally use a laptop at home (and hate touch pads with passion) so avoid the mouse as much as possible. I’d heard lots of talk of them being great for keyboard-only use, so dipped my toe in and tried a few out… [click the image to go straight to config files]
Well, I’ve knocked together a bit of “plumbing” code, to make a vocal interface to the internet chatbot Cleverbot. So far it works – as well as can be expected with cleverbot – and it will be eventually added into an as-yet-unannounced hardware project I’m working on.
Here is a little demo I put on youtube of it in action…
All my code will be available on GitHub at some point, but it is ugly as sin. So I won’t give you a link just yet, but I’m sure you can find it if you are that motivated!
At some point I want to move away from Cleverbot, to a locally hosted chatbot. Anybody with any suggestions for that, feel free to share in the comments.
For a few years now, I’ve been running a Kodi setup on various Raspberry Pi’s to live behind my telly. Currently on RPi 3, and OSMC is my distro of choice (clean, simple, smooth, and fast!). One plugin came to my attention which I found to be marvelous, called Cinema Experience. And I’ve managed to tailor it further to my needs through some BASH script magic…
