Taking a look at my many years old Linux notes, I remember that I used to use `locate` for finding files quickly. However, as I bought my first SSD, I stopped using it because I didn't want my whole file system to be scanned every day for a db update.
Today, however, I learned that `mlocate` is also available, and is called with the `locate` command according to the Gentoo Wiki. https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Mlocate
Does it mean that mlocate has replaced locate? Also, how taxing is it?

rclone - rsync for cloud storage https://rclone.org/
Through Termux, I can finally do what's been missing in the Nextcloud client on Android: copy/sync arbitrary files to and from the server.
rclone also supports mounting remote directories through FUSE, although I haven't been able to do that in Termux. (I get a message that fusermount is not found in $PATH.) Let me know if someone happens to know how to fix that.
Trying out Surfingkeys on Firefox after moving back and forth between Vimium and Tridactyl. Loving it so far! https://github.com/brookhong/Surfingkeys
I've tried TiddlyWiki (and TiddlyMap) recently for non-linear note-taking. Having used various mind-mapping tools in the past (especially Freeplane), it looks very promising.
Do you happen to know other open source tools worth trying for taking non-linear notes?
