Blessing in disguise: kernel update broke both scroll wheels on my old budget mouse, which nudged me to buy a new Logitech gaming mouse. Plus I learned how to map program specific bindings to buttons!

Now I know why my Moto G hasn't received any LineageOS updates since February: LineageOS 14.1 has been officially discontinued. 🙁

Previm: Live preview markdown (and a few other formats) in the browser of your choice. No external dependencies required.

First commit pushed to Raspberry Pi running Gitea. Feels liberating!

Antimicro has been abandoned. Again. github.com/juliagoda/antimicro

Can anyone recommend a good alternative (apart from qjoypad and sc-controller)?

Distro recommendation for Raspberry Pi?

@hund How much time does it normally take to update the database? For me, having also two HDDs, it took about a minute.

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. 😎

@hund On /r/redditalternatives there are already several Reddit clones listed that are open source. One of them is notabug, which looks EXACTLY how Reddit used to look.

I think the problem is that none of these are compatible with each other technology- and/or policy-wise and their individual userbases are quite small.

I'm rooting for any Reddit clones that are compatible with ActivityPub right now.

@hund Given how popular rtv is (judging by GitHub stars), I guess someone will fork it and that fork continues to live on.

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 ͡°)
