Well, once again it's #Caturday, so here is Lucy back in 2014. She really hasn't changed.

Just built a fully functional, configured Debian server on vultr in 15 minutes. I think that's my new record. This includes: server installation, adding an account, installing and tweaking git, vim, alpine, zsh, Dropbox to my liking, and modifying DNS records.

Checked out at Whole Foods with a cart full of vegan food. And the cashier said to me "I bet you're vegan." And you know what I said to him? "I'm vegan btw. I'm vegan. Did I mention I'm vegan?"

The headstock to my first guitar. Bought new in 1998, it's a Squier Pro Tone Stratocaster that sounds and feels better than most Fender branded guitars I've owned or played. Korean made with Texas Special pickups and whammy, it's basically an SRV Strat. With some of the same hardware that eventually went on the Fender American Strat series I still can't believe it's badged as a Squier.

Why aren't there NVMe drives in the same way there are floppy drives or CD drives or SD card slots or...? The form factor's universal, why can I not just plug one it as needed, connected to a PCIe controller on the motherboard?

The last time I worked on a C++ program in the Flatpak of Intellij, the IDE suggested that I use CLion instead. I guess they want me to buy a license. I'm just a student programmer, so I'm not excited about that. I'd love to be able to work on other languages that aren't Java-based without running a whole different IDE.

I feel like I'm being pushed into the arms of Visual Studio Code.

I am open to someone who isn't me solving the problem of adding language compilers and interpreters to Flatpak IDEs in Fedora Silverblue-like systems

I have no plans for Fortran development, but I was curious.

I found out that you can call a command from a Toolbox (aka Toolbox) container without entering the container by using the -c switch. But none of the Flatpak IDEs I tried (Geany, Netbeans, Intellij) seem to be able to tap into the Fedora system CLI. They all have their own CLI environment, it seems.

TIL that the Flatpak of the Code::Blocks IDE can compile C and C++ with its own compilers. But it cannot compile Fortran AFAIK. I actually entered a Fortran "Hello World" to test this.

I recently removed a couple of blog entries about my disappointment in CentOS Stream, but the About page on my CentOS Stream updates blog tells it pretty well. tl;dr hoping for better things in Stream 9. centos.passthejoe.net/about/

TIL that you can compile C and C++ programs in the Intellij Flatpak — in Fedora Silverblue, or any other OS presumably — by running gcc (for C) or g++ (for C and C++) in the Intellij terminal or Run Anything dialog (which you get by clicking ctrl twice)
