Small devices use two-prong USB-AC, but there's also a three-prong version with a USB-B plug as the ground.

Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....

When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.

@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.

Tip: instead of pressing the "Accept All Cookies" button, press the *other* button, and then press "Confirm".

It's just 2 clicks instead of 1, no need to fiddle settings (they have to make them privacy-respecting by default) and you make the world a little less dystopian!

This actually brought back my dead laptop! Thought it was fried after plugging it in to charge, and it shut off.. Never turning back on.. Until now!

"unplug the AC adapter and take out the battery. Then, you push the power button 10 times in a row at one second intervals. Next, you push and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then you put the battery back in and push the power button"

Hello, good afternoon, yes, sorry for the bother, but...

Someone needs to make this, please? So that I might give them all the money.

WTF ... Mozilla had always running JavaScript inside PDFs disabled by default.

But now with FF 88 this option is ENABLED by default. Which means, if a PDF file contains JS it will run without any user interaction. What can possibly go wrong?

To disable this:

about:config
pdfjs.enableScripting --> false

# FF 78.10 ESR doesn't include this option and still blocks JS in PDFs by default. Just tested.

Last time I didn't finish this great book - "The Linux Command Line", and then I went offline for more than half a year.

It turns out that the second edition came out and has already been translated into Russian!

I'm definitely going to finish this book this time.

If English is your native language (or a good level to read technical literature) - you are in luck, you can download this book for free:
