Window vs Tabs 😀
One of the best decisions I made was to deactivate those 'read receipts', aka blue ticks, from the IM apps that I use. Not only people stopped asking me for an answer right away but also I stopped waiting for other people's answers as soon as the ticks went blue. #MentalHealth
VS Codium - the community-maintained MIT-Licensed build of Visual Studio Code from Microsoft, is now available in the Snap Store! Edit your code with more added Freedom!
/e/ ROM keeps pushing apps it thinks users might need with no option to disable or uninstall them. This time it was a pdf viewer. Looks nice but I had one installed already and it worked perfectly fine.
I have now switched back to Lineage. This also fixed an issue I was facing (unrelated to /e/) where apps couldn't write to external SD card.

Wasn't aware cat can be used to create a live USB key of the Debian ISO :) (worked with Ubuntu as well)
cat debian-8.0.0-amd64-i386-netinst.iso >/dev/sdb; sync
I have always used dd for this purpose.

Malicious Python libraries stealing OpenPGP and SSH keys:
– Look for python3-dateutil, and jeIlyfish.
– Both modules try to exfiltrate SSH/OpenPGP keys and send them to an IP address.
– This is the third time the PyPI team intervenes to remove typo-squatted malicious Python libraries from the official repository.

Learnt the difference between the uuid4 and uuid5 functions in Python's uuid library.
uuid4 — generates a random UUID whereas, uuid5 accepts a namespace ( I used uuid.NAMESPACE_URL) and a name as an argument to generate a unique UUID for the given URL.
Next step will be to store all information in a database!
Happy Birthday QuiteRSS :)
my current RSS reader (Desktop/Qt). Been using it for more than a year now. Fast & customizable. No sync options, but I'm okay with it.
Lots of dark color themes for Emacs. It was hard to find a light theme that I liked. Found this nice one recently called "Doom Nord Light" and I'm liking it :)
It is part of the "doom-themes" package and is available from MELPA.

Webrecorder is a program/service to archive web pages . Available as a desktop app (https://github.com/webrecorder/webrecorder-desktop)
This might be the Read it later/Pocket alternative I was looking for (testing)
ArchiveBox (https://archivebox.io/) is interesting too. Doesn't have a a GUI yet, but provides a browsable index for saved web pages.
Other programs I've looked at: Wallabag, Polar Bookshelf, Zotero and Shiori.
Monolith (https://github.com/Y2Z/monolith) is useful for saving individual web pages incl. js and css.
