So... Sometime ago i did a backup of my projects and my dotfiles. I used the utility "fd" to find all the files I wanted to backup. I didn't remember that fd by default doesn't look for files starting with a dot.
I used that backup to restore my files after changing distro.

I screwed up all of my projects config and I have lost all of my dotfiles. What a nice day!

So, i just wrote a game in rust and then in C. I have to say that rust is quite useless for little programs where you can keep track of everything.
Rust really shines when you have a big project and nobody knows what a function does

Simple text is the most accessible way to "encode" a message. It's small, searchable and easily readable at different speeds. The next time you do a video tutorial or review, consider writing a blog post instead.
Thank you

@ranfdev I've added this package to my "Awesome FLOSS Mobile" list, which I suggest everyone checks out and contributes to! 😎

The next time you install a custom rom, don't flash Google apps. Flash this .
It's a flashable package containing micro-g, f-droid and other open source apps

A new Linux smartphone is coming!

With an affordable price, too. Pine64 is behind this device running KDE Plasma.

KDE Neon creator Jonathan Riddell revealed this at Open Source Summit and it will be called PinePhone.

You can expect this open source Linux smartphone to cost $100+ for 2GB RAM and 16GB storage.

1.5 years ago I changed the battery of my Thinkpad t430. Now the battery is dying again. One week ago the capacity was at 36%, now it's at 26%. This is a big problem, because I don't want to buy 2 more batteries until 2021. Do programs like tlp make a real difference in mantaining the capacity over time?

This should be especially important to developers. The program should create the default config file, automatically.
If you care about this, please, boost

When your program needs a config file, create a default one, with every default option in place. In this way, the user can just open the file, look for the option and change it, without looking at the documentation every time.
A good example i3wm

I've just discovered . What's so special about it? It seems another centralized service.

Something that worries me about people using Google to find things, and Twitter/Facebook to communicate, and Amazon to find reading material, is that recommendation algorithms and networks as a side effect tend to be doing something like clustering.. but over a time-series that they affect. That is, by showing you stuff that maximises clickthrough, engagement, or purchase, they're actively removing the lesser facets that make you a diamond, and turning you into an easily-modelled mirror instead.
