this way and that way and

I've had a resurgence in gemini exploration of late. Many nice finds.

The biggest detractor for me is not being able to remember all of where I've been, thus blowing lots of time following already-followed URLs. I can imagine a "user exit" to bombadillo in which I could save URLs and pause at a URL already visited with a simple "You've been there already. Continue? (y/n)" dialog, but I've only the bombadillo binary, and can imagine horrific retrograde workstation motion attempting to bring/install everything needed to work with "Go" in this Chromebook Linux environment.

More generally: except for little time/effort-saver scripts (preferably in Lua), bigger-time software endeavor utterly exhausts me, hence my never going back to employment therein.

Such a nice day in progress, here, but several days of one-thing-after-another looms. Looking forward to significant peaceful exhalation at the conclusion of the period of the next four days (this day inclusive).
I am thinking of a Lenovo Chromebook Duet 3 for a main machine, but haven't decided. Problem there is, it's double the cost for one with SnapDragon and no version exists with Intel, I don't think. Linux beta apps would have to work if I got it.

Cruton on Samsung Series 3 Chromebook was nice, but it forced the user to stay in developer mode to remain installed.

Don't know where I am going with this, other than a Linux-centric Chromebook rig sounds/seems/is nice (and way more affordable than a full-time tower PC)
I've been working an "Acer Chromebook 15" for years, and have never not loved it. It even folds out into a tablet, although I've almost never done that for loving typing so much.

I'm not quite remember how I access its underlying Linux because we're talking many months between reboots. All I'm remembering is using some "Terminal" app, selecting something that essentially means "the underlying Linux", which leads to a shell session, and then I "tmux" on top of that, and it's just ongoing joy from there.

I should probably save dotfiles more often so as not to have to completely start over again, but then again a lot of dead-weighty cruft is lost in starting over.

I've installed a few things via "sudo apt-get install", which I believes indicates something about what underlying Linux it is, but I can't remember what, and honestly couldn't care less.
