Sometimes my computer does this thing where after waking from suspend and unlocking GNOME, it freezes, but I can change between TTYs, and there are these graphical artifacts on the screen.

the LGBT standard was refreshed to LGBTQ and most recently LGBTQIA, but you may see the following proprietary extensions in older equipment:

LGBT 2000

μLGBTQ (embedded only)
LGBTQ Creative Cloud

I'm sure this isn't true, but I often get the feeling that when Google Mail receives an email from a non-Google Mail account, they hide it in the spam folder. And what's worse is they even hide the spam folder!

I just found out that what I thought was the "insert" function of a is actually called "overtype" or "overwrite"... and that the normal text input method is called "insert."

But you have to push the insert key to get to overtype. So... I assume overtype was the default at some point in history??

I take MR Weasley's advice on #InternetOfThings "Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can't see where it keeps its brain?”

I trust him because he is an expert on muggle artifacts.

My Android phone's display is being mirrored to this projector without wires and with only default software (Samsung's "Smart View," available in the pull down menu next to WiFi, Bluetooth, Airplane Mode, etc.).

Hmm... Very convenient.

Stumbled across this video on PeerTube about sharing an Android screen to another device. Exactly one of the things I've been wanting to do, and I found a video about it even though I wasn't looking for it!

Is there a way to install downloaded updates on all apps in F-Droid? I have to do each one individually, and it takes so long x.x

Tor Browser got an update recently and now it looks really modern. Based on Firefox 60 ESR.

Been trying for the past few days to rescue my router. I got it to boot with an initramfs image that I served up over tftp! But I'm not able to SSH into it after that.

I also tried serving up a version of LEDE instead that supposedly works with the router. That didn't work and left me with the same symptoms as before.

Finally, I think I found an OEM image, buried in a MacOS download. Will try serving that tonight!
