rhizome is a tumblelog inspired by Leah Neukirchen’s Trivium.
it mostly features links I think are cool, but might on occasion be a place for sharing things I’m up to that don’t really warrant a more fleshed out discussion.

- sfizz: Open source soundfont player using the .sfz format. I like it!
- qutebrowser: Maybe the most promising alternative to major browsers. Keyboard-driven, but not restrictively so; I’ve started using it as of late, coming from being a long-time Firefox user, and I’ve really gotten into it.
- XMascot: The most adorable program I’ve seen yet. I’ve tried to rehabilitate it a bit at somasis/xmascot, based off of the FreeBSD port’s upstream. Featuring my own attempt at translating the Japanese text to English, since the documentation had much more detail in its original Japanese than the English versions originally included.
things I’m up to:
- I released some music… somasis - CHAMELEON.
- One of my partners got a PS5 and I’ve been playing NieR: Automata and NieR: Replicant the past few months. They’re amazing and I love the story and the universe that’s been created within the games.
- I stumbled into learning some Perl; I wrote two scripts, mimefilter, and a script for sending files to the trash, as specified by freedesktop.org. I haven’t really polished up the trash script much (nor am I using it instead of
rm, yet…) or else I’d link it here.
- Related to the above two points: it turns out getting medication for long-undiagnosed ADHD helps. :)
- Should we stop?, a really beautifully put together piece thinking about how maybe the world must change before software is good.
- The Default Router, an article about how the Linksys WRT54G got famous.
- 90ssamplecds, a collection of questionably legal sample packs popular with producers in the 1990s. Drink each time you hear the Amen break being passed off as a royalty-free sample!
- ledger, a double-entry accounting system. I recently start using it after some time using Firefly III, which is quite nice but I was curious about plain-text accounting stuff.
- catclock, an adorable xclock fork with a cat…
- unix50.org lets you ssh into old UNIX systems going all the way back to UNICS, from the summer of '69.
- The Unix Command Language, the first paper ever published about the Unix shell. written by a certain ken thompson in 1976.
- usand, an unshare(1)-based sandbox.
things I’m up to:
- I started this lil blog thing.
- I got ahold of The C Programming Language and 21st Century C, and I’l hopefully be reading it while working on some C utilities for some Mutiny work. I’ve got some vague experience working with C when it comes to patching other people’s projects, but not much in terms of writing from scratch.
- Hopefully I will participate in Advent of Code for the first time this year?
