Hi, I'm using a MacBook Pro 2018, and I'm dipping my toes into virtual machine, tried VirtualBox and then moved to QEMU with UTM after some recommendation on YouTube saying KVM is just better.

However, my Windows 10 virtual machine created with UTM is so slow and laggy. Then I tried the Parallel Desktop, which is propriety and the performance is so much better. Why is that?

I don't want to use a propriety paid program for VM, so I want to ask how to improve performance on UTM or any open-source alternative that gives the performance on par with one on parallel desktop.

Thanks for your help!

is it any better than Invidious? I usually watch through yewtu.be

I used bare git repo before, then switch to GNU Stow + Nix home-manager.

seem like a good place to shill my blog about switching browser and search engine. I recommend Librewolf on desktop and Mull on android tho. view this privacy comparison. For search engine, use StartPage, Whoogle (privacy frontend for Google) or SearXNG (search engine aggregator)

Comic Sans is the answer.

I tried it, it's nice, thank you man! I'm on zsh, so I have to add history 0 in pick_from_history tho. It would be nicer if it allows continuous deletion and not need to rerun every time. Btw, even when I delete it locally it wouldn't delete already synced history on Atuin, I guess I'll take a look at that later.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 11 months ago

Oh, I didn't know that, thanks! Do you know any quick way to search and delete password contained commands in the history?

Nice tip, I will start doing it from now on. I recommend Atuin to keep and sync the shell history, although I don't like its default bindings.

I already posted this on c/commandline but I think it's more suitable here.

How I manage snippets (howarddo2208.github.io)
submitted 11 months ago* (last edited 11 months ago) by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Hi guys, it's my new blog post on managing snippets with a TUI program called Nap. I know it not addressing Neovim specifically, but writing code in the terminal in general, and I'm requesting Tmux community btw. Hope you find the blog useful.

Hi guys, I'm a soydev trying to learn rust. It's hard, especially with the references, ownership, the compiler goes crazy every time and I just throw all the references, dereference until it stops. I'm not used to it coming from JS. Do you have some resource, tips to improve on this? Thank you very much. Side note: what is your first project in rust? And what are some interesting open-source rust projects, you go to learn from/ contribute to?

If you are like me, chances are you used Neovim for a period of time without knowing the basics. The notion of buffers windows and tabs in Vim is quite different from other IDEs/code editors. I suggest you read through this and this Stackoverflow answer to get some understanding of this matter.

I think the main pain point of distro hopping is learning a new package manager, I discovered Nix a while ago, it works on every single OS, has the biggest package repo out there. I replaced Homebrew on my mac with it. If this piques your interest, give it a go. Later, you can integrate with Home-manager to manage all of your program config to have a reproducible dev environment on any machine, as described in the tutorial here.

The catch is it's really advanced and got steep learning curve. You can adopt gradually tho. Just get started with nix-shell and nix-env
