@rtwx LMMS provides a lot in one package. Synthesizers, drum machines, and good sequencing and pattern editing utilities.

If you use Jack, you have a lot of flexibility in routing and could terminate that in Ardour for sequencing/recording. But I think the Jack workflow takes a lot of management and has some bugs.

I have to say, #Flatpak works very nicely on #Slackware... it makes some things very nice and easy.

I cobbled together a guide of sorts for setting up your own free #Gopher hole on

lynx gopher://



Look under the "Muse" section of my spelkhole, its in there.

It should outline the basics of getting a user account, setting up a gopher space and building your first gophermap.

Hopefully it will help people who are curious try out gophering, and some may support #SDF's public access #UNIX server going forward.

The week is about 7 hours old where I am, and I think I've already had about enough of it 😆

Hoping for you people to have a nicer Monday morning!

I have some thoughts on the future of #UI on non-mobile devices and the role that #FLOSS can play.

1. It seems that all proprietary software companies are de-prioritising their desktop OSes, in terms of focus and resources. Microsoft is doing weird tablet hybridisation and Apple is just porting iOS junk back from the iPad.

This creates a vacuum, as there is no modern desktop UI. Nothing's been done since roughly OS X. It's been 18 years. More than my whole adult life.
