Just in case it has already happened to you: For an unpacked TAR archive🗄️ no extra folder 📁 is created and the content is mixed with many other files in the same directory? How to clean up this mess⁉️

$ tar -tf Nice_Prog_RC1.tar.gz | xargs rm -r

With 'tar -tf' in :terminal: only the content of the archive is displayed. This list of files is given to 'xargs', which passes it on to 'rm -r' for deletion. On the next try we better unpack the archive into an extra folder.👨‍💻

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

So when are we getting a sub-5" flagship Android phone?

The correct way to do a white phone. Nice to see Apple catch up to the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 5X, Pixel 2, Pixel 3, and Pixel 4 here. 😜 But of course Pixel 1 was trying to look more like an iPhone, so it was white back/front…
