On the plus side, in spite of my issues with git submodules, I've replaced Google Analytics on my personal blog with something more privacy focused and tracker free.

Getting my periodic reminder that git submodules, while useful in some situations, are a pain in the butt to manage.

Just did a 'sudo apt autoremove' that deleted 62MB of stuff. I remember when that would have represented half of my hard drive.

Took my first look at Owncloud and NextCloud.

So... Both look nice.

So why would one choose one over the other?

Is this going to be a Firefox / Iceweasel thing?

Welp, I just gave GitLab some high-quality tracking data of me deleting my account.

Open source projects which lack licenses are quite annoying.

Please license your project, otherwise it's not FOSS and you shouldn't be calling it as such. Even small things like shell scripts and Vim themes require licenses to be FOSS.

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.
