Small discovery: I use #pass a lot, but only today I found about #passmenu, that loads up in dmenu. After a convenient keybind, now my workflow is a little faster. That's the great #freesoftware life!

Read this. This article pretty summarizes what I see every day. And when I criticize it, half of the audience doesn't understand my point. They are simply to young and grew up with smart phones and fast lines.

What are some scenarios when terminal emulators that use GPUs are beneficial? When rendering a huge output while the terminal window is in the foreground? That sounds too rare of a situation to account for the hype.

"Google bosses have tried to contain the anger by shutting down employee access to documents about the China search engine. Following leaks from an all-hands staff meeting last month, sources said, the company has tightened rules so that employees working remotely can no longer view a livestream of the meetings on their own computers — they can only watch them inside a designated room at a Google office overseen by managers."

yeah that'll work

“I need to change some of my
behavior, and I want to apologize to the people that my personal
behavior hurt and possibly drove away from kernel development
entirely.”

Also Microsoft : Open Source Browsers are slower and don't do enough about safety.

We are currently having a discussion on the F-Droid forum about letting apps toot to the Fediverse. This would be used to share app changelogs, and eventually display comments from the Fediverse inside the F-Droid app. Unfortunately, none of us has experience with Mastodon/Pleroma development, so it would be very helpful if a developer could give some input.

The thread is rather long, so feel free to make a comment here or on the forum and we will give you specific questions we have.

This blog post is a really good summary of various CLI utilities that are (arguably) a step up from #linux builtins. There are several in there that I use, along with several that I decided that were overcomplicated, and a couple I hadn't heard of and want to look into. remysharp.com/2018/08/23/cli-i
