    Project mention: Issue with Godaddy DNS API | | 2023-01-31

    Using the directions for Godaddy on, I'm can only seem to get it to work when I put only, and not a second entry like they specify you can with, and can't seem to get it to allow a subdomain. That subdomain does exist on Godaddy, I have set it up as a CNAME and A host record, doesn't seem to change the outcome. Here is the output in -debug mode. Below has been sanitized of my domain, and I can see it does the first one but then fails on the www domain. Is there a change on Goaddy's side that causing this to fail or issue in the script because even with just only www it still fails.

  • asus-fan-control

    Fan control for ASUS devices running Linux

    Project mention: Help with KDE neon fan controls on asus vivobook pro 14 oled | | 2022-10-21

    Hi there! I recently switched over from windows 11 to kde neon (windows wasnt cutting it for my purposes), and I noticed that I have no way to control my asus vivobook pro 14 oled (m3401) fan controls. I did fix up the issues with battery capacity controls with tools like TLP, but I have not been able to control the fan speed (i wanna make it go fast cuz im not exactly comfortable at 99C during large compiles (im a student, and i kinda need to run compiles on the move)). On windows I was just able to use the MyAsus app and use the performance profile for my fans but I can't do that here because of no MyAsus. I found this wonderful tool called asus-fan-control, sadly it does not support AMD CPUs (I opened a ticket, which if you wanna check out, is the link). What would be a way I can get around this issue? i don't wanna have to repaste this laptop anytime soon (maybe at least run it for 2 years before i end up repasting it). I did not run into such high temps on windows (probably because MyAsus took care of it), but I can't (and don't want to) switch back to windows because I am more familiar to linux than I am to windows (not to mention, it is more convenient for my projects).

    Project mention: agkozak/dotfiles for all your POSIX and near-POSIX needs | | 2022-08-24

    I've spent the last few years tweaking a set of dotfiles that support a ridiculous number of shells (I also develop the pan-POSIX Polyglot Prompt, so I need everything to work when I launch a different shell). The most advanced stuff is for zsh, tmux, and vim, though.
