@pinafore I discovered the web app this week and I'm loving it so far!

Began reading the XMPP spec today! I think I eventually want to write an XMPP server or contribute to an existing one.

I originally thought the `pass` command ( is a complex program written in C, but it's a quite small shell script that just invokes `tree` for many of its operations.

Switching to text labels instead of icons for buttons in Gmail (you can do this in Settings > General) has made managing emails less anxiety-inducing about performing the wrong action.

What are good resources on the best practices to implement a web crawler?

I want to set up XMPP for use with family. How do I go about it? Would you recommend a XMPP server program that I can run? Or is there a recommended hosted service?

Starting to learn Koltin and Android development. Can anyone recommend me resources like a course or documents? Thank you.

Hi, ! I'm looking for a new pair of Bluetooth earphones. Any recommendations? I mainly want a comfortable fit, 8hours or more of battery life, and average or better built-in microphone.

I wish I could disable animations for the Activities overview alone but keep other animations (e.g., window open/close). Is there a way to do this, perhaps a gsettings command?

I tried GNOME 40 on a Boxes VM today. Activating the Activities overview has lesser window shifting/animations and I'm all +1 for this!

Does anyone know of an online community for loved ones of the mentally ill? Or even something related. Could even be on a proprietary platform—I'm desperate.

One small thing I've really liked in the switch from macOS to Fedora is the Gnome Terminal feature that sends a desktop notification when a command in an unfocussed terminal window completes! It lets me start a command (scp, git clone, dnf install) and then switch to something else without having to stare at the terminal.

Minor improvement: instead of using ctrl+shift+w to close Gnome Terminal tabs, which I find uncomfortable because it requires 3 fingers, I've started to use ctrl+d, which has the same effect.

Far more natural to use than go-bindata. I really like the integration with "net/http" file serving and "html/template" parsing.

Downloaded go1.16rc1 so I could use //go:embed. The API described in the package docs looks so easy to use. Going to hack with it now.

The []() syntax always confuses me and long URLs make edits harder!

I don't dread the thought of writing Markdown as much after switching to using footnote-style links instead of inline links.

Found this post that is two months old: The lack of Docker support and the extra work for homebrew mentioned in the post make me want to choose an Intel-based Mac for now.
