    I think you are right I could do something like that. The thing is I feel this probably should have been solved already in a way that a non techie person should be able to use it and not go through so many hoops like hardlinks and whatnot. Thanks for the suggestion, I will try and use that while I don't have a working version of my idea.

    If I understood correctly, I would need a directory containing duplicates of the tracks I wanted to sync to the phone, right? I wanted to avoid that because that would not be a trivial amount of storage, though I guess it would in a few years.

    I am working on a daemon + android app to sync my music collection to my phone.

    My audio files are well organized on my laptop using beets But frustratingly there is no decent way to copy the music I want without using a cable or some shitty proprietary service. I like using syncthing to sync files but with syncthing I cannot select which folders/files I want to sync. I just want to be able to sync my files and use whatever player I want. I think syncing and playing audio are two different problems, and an app should not try to do both.

    Echoes of Software disenchantment come to mind, but I guess I am part of the problem to, so might as well get to work.

    I am using the opportunity to learn some more rust and finally try out kotlin. I don't like to work on client side things at all, but I think some of the skills are useful anyway.

    Black beans are my favorite beans, and that looks like the black bean and avocado bowl the hipster cafe around me sells, so I will definitely try it.

    Any tips on making the tofu actually crispy? I can get good results with corn starch but never as good as some restaurants.

    You are not the first person to suggest this book, seems I really have to look into it. The disadvantage is I don't know what Southern food is supposed to taste like. Thanks!

    Hi,

    Where I am living we are going back into a month long lockdown, I would like to find some vegetarian recipes to cook.

    I am not a Chef but I cook everyday so more advanced recipes are fine, though I also like quick wins when I don't feel like spending much time cooking.

    What do you people eat when you don't want to eat meat? What are your favorite recipes?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for these, it's helpful to see how other people do it. Inside those user's directories, do you create other directories manually? Or do you manage that outside of nix entirely?

    I see some people using NixOs on their servers. I would like to try it out to self host some services and learn about NixOs.

    I use hetzner and they have an NixOs iso available so I can just use that to install NixOs. But how do people manage remote instances of NixOs? They would just use ansible or something like it, to run nix on the host, or is there a better way?

    Thanks
