I just want to state for the record that #Rclone is totally awesome. This thing can do *everything*.
I had to manually organize some files on Azure Blob Storage today. Just 'rclone mount blob:/ mnt', and then I can do everything like I'm working on the local file system. Seamless.

My recommendation for a #selfhosted feed reader:
If you have a few feeds and read everything (this is how I use RSS), choose #Miniflux. Clean, elegant UI, good defaults.
If you want to keep unread feeds around or need filtering, choose #FreshRSS. Not as pleasant to use but has more advanced features.
I've gotten back into #RSS lately in an attempt to gain some control over the content I consume.
Each day, I'll scroll past dozens of headlines on Reddit/HN but rarely spot anything worthwhile. My feed reader yields maybe 5-10 articles a week, but I read all of them.
The trick is curation -- only subscribing to high-quality feeds that I actually read.
My favorite #Kakoune feature is how fluidly it lets you interact with external programs. I made this little demo where I convert some timestampts to Unix time by piping multiple selections into `date`.
Programming is basically magic. I enjoy tinkering with computers and creating things.
