This could come in really handy when updating packages.
Imagine: pacman/yay could diff the changelog between the installed and the new version of the package and show you what has changed since the last update.
Friends don't let friends use GitHub.
With GitHubs recent push for their CLI tool over the the already ubiquitous and understood git CLI and the new certification agenda, I will be migrating and will no longer support or endorse Github.
Don't let GitHub continue to monopolise FOSS and OS communities - Move your hardwork elsewhere.
It's sad to admit but I have taken a few courses on learning JS and I know the basic concepts & syntax but putting it all together is still difficult to me. Most courses teach you the basics and show you how to do a few projects but never show how to real-world code. That's my problem at the moment.
Are there any good resources/videos/courses out there for this learning curve?
TL;DR: Are there any good courses that help take the basic concepts and show how to use them in real world scenarios?

Don't forget to let us know which FOSS projects that you'd like us to support! Submissions will be open until 10/25.

So, the big selling feature of the upcoming Sony PS5 is that firmware updates will be able to adjust the cooling fan speed for optimum operating temperature.
Hey Sony, if you include a temperature sensor in the design, you can adjust the cooling fan speed optimally for the local environmental conditions. 😕
@cosmicnomad you're welcome! Every day I take another step deeper in FOSS, and I feel like this will never truly end.
XMPP has truly matured lately and in 2020 I think it's no different than any other commercial chat platform. Make sure you use a client that supports OMEMO, and that your server has good security practices:
#Encryption is a personal right. As much as self-defense is. As much as having curtains, walls and locks on doors is.
Legislators are trying to take that right away from you - do *not* let that happen. Use end-to-end encryption, promote it, teach it, develop it. Here's my part: a command-line symmetric encryption program that is simple to use and secure.
@cosmicnomad I take 'em with a grain of salt. They boast about "championing freedom and privacy" but can't help thinking that they're a quack regarding their encryption - I heard was even cracked a few years ago.
The serious alternative to it is #Signal, which implements real-life #OMEMO encryption, or if you wanna ditch the phone (highly recommended!) and be truly cross-platform, go for #XMPP. It's a whole new world out there.
@cosmicnomad also, in case you're not on a Unix system and need some good, really random passwords, this Service by Random.org seems to be alright:
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
