The Linux Cast

Joshua Lee
I Joined The Linux Cast I’m proud to annoucne that I’ve been invited to be a host on The Linux Cast with Matt, Tyler, and Another guy I only being named DarkXero. The community there might know me as the “Gentoo Guy” but in truth I think of myself as a distro maintainers worst nightmare. The end user who’s willing to tinker. What’s Going to Happen We’ll see how chaotic the show comes to be however as it’s doubling the number of hosts.

Distrohacking: Is NixOS The Future?

Joshua Lee
Video Shownotes NixOS is a distro after my own heart, we cover the instalation and how cool I think it is, and yet somehow I got convinced by a guest known as Dem to try slackware, while I also goof around with Emacs a bit. You’ll find while the episode is long, we almost always have a good time. Links: NixOS Slackware GNU Emacs Subscribe Audio YouTube Social Media Blog

Audio Samples

Joshua Lee
So I’ve been working on some audio stuff Here’s some audio smaples for my current setup. Linux Mint 20.3 PulseAudio Cinnamon Desktop Audio Technica AT2020 Alesis Multimix 4USBFX (I honestly hate this thing but it was cheap enough xlr at the time) nevoyu-sample.tar.gz Thats literally as raw a recording that a recording can be, I included the audacity project file too for proofs. but this mixer has no effects and the tuning is flat on the 12kHz and 80Hz and it feeds into the PC via the mixer’s usb port.

How I Play D&D Using Linux Native Tools

Joshua Lee
Why Linux? I use Linux as my primary operating system purely as personal preference. If you’ve looked at my previous post you’ll know I prefer to use Tiling Window Managers these days and honestly using Windows 10 or even MacOS just feels…. wrong to me. So allow me a momnent before I dig into these tools I need to make the disclaimer that they aren’t all open source or even free.
