My new computer setup.
And here's what the screen looks like, screenshot and photo
I know someone on the fediverse sent me these stickers but I honestly don't remember who but they're great.
Still waiting to actually get the time to sit down and USE the dang thing lol.
I just checked my mail, and my adafruit order also came in.
I'm going to explore potential applications for this eink screen over the next few weeks. I'll let you know if I come up with anything cool.
It's nighttime and my partner is asleep, so the lights are off.
I've turned down the tv brightness and backlight abuot as much as they go. if i turn down contrast each letter gets an aura which i bet would be uncomfortable to look at for long.
But, as it is, it's pretty comfortable.
Also, been learning to work with lispy-mode in emacs, since it's becoming clear my personal webserver project is gonna be bigger than I expected.
@emacsomancer Default I guess. I might like the other more since i'm not familiar with vim's enough for that to help?
@emsenn There should be a tablet where the operating system really is Emacs (excluding the other software that is just used for bootstrapping Emaca).
@pizza_pal that's how I treated my last Chromebook and kinda what I'm making here, I have a Bluetooth keyboard and battery pack I just need a mobile screen
@pizza_pal the computer pictured here was a neat $100 for everything pictured, the monitor mouse power cables and keyboard were thrifted just for anyone curious
@emsenn congrats, and enjoy it!
@emsenn boiled it down to a single pi?
@cwebber Well everything else broke so... yes! A single pi and a thrifted tv.
@emsenn Oh dang! My experience is that previous RPis are just too underpowered to really be general-purpose workstations.
@astraluma "General purpose" giving general computing habits in 2019?
I think that's probably still true of this one.
General purpose given my personal habits cultivated by years of underpowered machines?
Might be powerful enough! All I really plan to do with it is text editing and reading.
