The classic point-and-click advernture game Toonstruck is being free on GOG gog.com/game/toonstruck

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. wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Mlocate

Does it mean that mlocate has replaced locate? Also, how taxing is it?

tfw you're not good at programming but writing build documentation is appreciated. 😎

nncli - NextCloud Notes Command Line Interface

"You can access your notes via a customizable console GUI that implements vi-like keybinds or via a simple command line interface that you can script."

"Notes can be viewed/created/edited in both an online and offline mode. All changes are saved to a local cache on disk and automatically sync’ed when nncli is brought online."

Buku - Browser-independent bookmark manager in the terminal github.com/jarun/Buku

Why?

- Make your bookmarks portable, sync them however you want
- Open bookmarks in ANY application (use the variable BROWSER like `BROWSER=mpv buku -o [id]` to open a link in mpv)
- Import from Firefox, Chromium, or Chrome
- Export/import from/to HTML, Markdown, or Orgfile
- Use multiple databases (with `--db [dbname].db`) and encrypt them so that others can't see what you saved (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Oh, actually, I missed something. I meant to write "copy/sync files to and from arbitrary directories".

rclone - rsync for cloud storage 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! github.com/brookhong/Surfingke

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?
