Next step is review nomoregoogle.com/ to see what other Google products I'm forgetting.

So some of the sites, I wouldv'e liked having #RSS #feeds for, do not have it.
So I find out about this website freerssgenerator.com/ (works with javascript disabled) that generates RSS feeds for sites when you give the url of that site.

In case if you have any better solution, let me know.

@yarmo The day you accept that Humans have some positive and negative attributes is the day you can live a more relaxed life. These negative attributes people keep talking about have been a part of Humanity for the entire time. They are all based on biases. It's called a "flaw" for a reason. Accept them, do the best you personally can, and move on. You choose the people you associate with.

Just discovered this, sounds freaking incredible.

github.com/ventoy/Ventoy

is an open source tool to create bootable USB drive for ISO files. With ventoy, you don't need to format the disk over and over, you just need to copy the iso file to the USB drive and boot it. You can copy many iso files at a time and ventoy will give you a boot menu to select them. Both Legacy BIOS and UEFI are supported in the same way. 200+ ISO files are tested.

Hello people on Fosstodon!

I'm glad I'm here because the community here is very nice.

Anyway, I wanted to start a topic. I'm looking to buy a laptop but there's a problem. Can't choose between PineBook Pro or older, used Thinkpad 420 or 440.

My main problem with Thinkpads is price (maybe they're under 100$ somewhere, in Serbia they're 200$+) and ofcourse, 1h battery life max.
With Pinebook? ARM architecture. Is Arch ARM same quality as Arch on x86?

What's your opinion on this?

Day 44 of the series:

A recent article from 9to5mac suggested that Apple should buy DuckDuckGo to compete with Google. Please, tell me no one is seriously considering this hair-brained idea.
