Just tried and it’s just doing ls in the directory passed in the arg 🤔
edit: alias cd="ls ${1} && cd ${1}" works tho

For me, it’s always a mess in the end sadly :D

How to add signature on aerc
I'm trying to use [aerc]( as my main email client but I don't find how to add automatically a signature to my mails. Does someone know how to do that?

Is there an alternative front-end for Twitch?
I'd like to watch some streams but I don't really wanna go on Twitch's website directly.

I chose depression but from what I heard it’s better than League of Legends

Back in High school I somehow managed to have none of the three.

This poll is missing the option Both :/

Damn, I can’t wait for this to happen in France! /s

Wait, there are countries where YT require ID?! wtf

Which Shell are you using?
sh, Bash, Zsh, Fish, Other...

sshh you’re ruining the meme :D

Yeah maybe, well I still can i gues

Which is way smarter than what I use lmao

For this type of funny website I use the password manager on my Ledger nano s (which I only use for the password manager feature - YES it is overkill) which emulates a keyboard hehe ¯\_◉‿◉_/¯

I don’t even dare to try Gentoo…

I’m currently reading Immortel by J.R Dos Santos, I find it pretty good I don’t really know the genre tho. Otherwise I really like biographical genre.

Btw I used to think that I couldn’t read books because I simply couldn’t focus but I’ve found a trick and now I love reading. The “trick” is that I must listen to a music from which I know the lyrics and I add some white noises to that, like that my mind can only focus on what I’m reading (or at least more than before).

I prefer the taste of tea while I like the boost coffee gives me, so in fact I like them both equally.

As someone who doesn’t use Reddit, I think it’s cool. (And if you think it’s not, feel free to make new memes)

Back on Arch-based distro, feels like home. At school we have to work on Gnome and as much as it's a good DE, it is so overwhelming. I love the minimalism of i3. - OS: EndeavourOS - WM: I3-gaps - bar: i3status - terminal: [Alacritty]( - oh-my-zsh theme: [brokebrandon]( - Mono font: Hack & monospace - fetcher: [Macchina]( - Music Player: [cmus](

I’m so lost when nano pops up.

Ah yes, “innovation”…

Are there admins/mods from different time zones?
Following the recent waves of trolls, I think it would be good to have admins/mods in different time zones to be able to react as soon as possible. I know it's not easy to set up but I think it's necessary. Maybe it is already the case but then there is a problem of reactivity. Again, I know it is not simple, I am just stating facts.

Yeah, that’s why I think it could be nice to have mods in different tz, to be able to act as soon as possible.

Idk if have mods in multiple tz but if it’s not the case it could be nice to consider it.

Isn’t it supposed to block IR or something to block facial recognition? Because just making them reflecting light will just make you more “fashion” imo

If you go directly on the new instance it’s normal but you can post via on heapoverflow :)

As I said, yes everything can be compromised but at least tor nodes aren’t run by companies (at least not every one). Also tor has been made to anonymize users, It’s not the first purpose of a VPN. But as always we all must make some compromises.

[Noob Alert] Is it possible to convert a Vec<String> to an array of &str (so [&str]) ?
I want to use the crate [human-sort]( but it only takes [&str] and I'm currently working with Vec\<String\>. Is this possible to make the conversion Vec\<String\> to [&str]? and in the other way?

Having the same color scheme everywhere overwhelmed me, so now I use some monokai here, some gruvbox there... First time trying i3 on a non-Arch-based distro, working nice even if i3gaps isn't officially supported on Debian. - OS: Debian 11 - WM: I3-gaps - bar: i3status - terminal: kitty (tmux) - oh-my-zsh theme: [brokebrandon]( - Mono font: Hack & monospace - fetcher: [Macchina]( - Wallpaper: [Tor Project (Onion service)](http://kbbaahpojw2s5ejng6uwbjlwk7jvn76stz5ojnqweef7tfqx7omvy3ad.onion/)

Family gave me a new phone but LineageOS isn't avalaible for this model right now :/ So I'm staying (sadly) with MIUI without using any google shitty apps.

Is there a transport assistant website?
On my phone I use [transportr]( but I'd like to be able to have a website that does the same thing to be able to check transport schedules without ads or any tracking bullshit on a computer. so is there a transport assistant website?

What are your favorite switches?
Right now I've only tested Cherry MX switches, I wanna build a new keyboard and I'm wondering what are your fav switches :)

[SOLVED]Tmux always starts with sh
I want to use zsh but everytime I launch tmux it starts with sh so I need to type `zsh` to have the right shell. Is there something to do in the configuration of tmux about that? EDIT: Well, it was only a bug in my tmux sessions

[C] [Question] What’s the best way ?
Hi, So I have an exercise where I must make a function that reproduce the behavior of the function strdup. I have made something that works but when I compare to another student work, we didn't really did the same here (I know that there are multiple ways to solve a problem). So I'm wondering if both solutions are equally effective. ::: spoiler My solution: ``` C #include <stdlib.h> char *ft_strdup(char *src) { int size = 0; while(src[size]) size++; char *str = NULL; str = (char *) malloc(size); for(int i = 0; i <= size; i++) { str[i] = src[i]; } return str; free(str); } ``` ::: ::: spoiler The other student solution: #include <stdlib.h> int ft_strlen(char *str) { int i; i = 0; while (str[i]) i += 1; return (i); } char *ft_strdup(char *src) { char *cpy; int i; i = -1; if (!src || !(cpy = (char *)malloc(sizeof(char) * ft_strlen(src) + 1))) return (NULL); while (src[++i]) cpy[i] = src[i]; cpy[i] = '\0'; return (cpy); } :::

Hello, there! Here is a new community to talk about everything related to tattoos. So feel free to share pictures of your tattoos, ask questions, etc... [!](

Two years ago I bought this Ducky Channel keyboard: ![]( ![]( But since then I've become more and more addicted to mechanical keyboards. The feel and the look of my Ducky no longer satisfied me. So recently I've decided to mod it a bit. I've changed the [case](, [the cable]( and the [keycaps]( I kept the same pcb and switches (cherry MX black). (I also added some [O-rings]( I wanted to have the feel of the old keyboards, I think I "did" a pretty good job. Here are some pictures of the new look: ![]( ![](

Is there a good alternative to imgur ?
I don't really like imgur but it's cool to upload your picture just at one place so I'm wondering if there's any nice replacement to it.

Wouldn’t it be more interesting to change the name of this community to a shorter one?
I find this one a bit long and too descriptive when there is a description for that. I think that a name like "Mechanical Keyboards" could be better.

What IDE (or text-editor) are you using ?
I'm kinda a Vimhead so I'm just using Vim and hand-compiling but I'm interested to see with which tools you people are working with
