What I most like in the #SmackJeeves "renewal" is that most comics that I used to read there are also hosted elsewhere, so I can change the links in my feed reader to sites that still provide RSS. I hope future technologies will automate finding which platform hosts a work.
Migrated my laptop running Debian from btrfs to ext4. What I did wrong: (0) continuing to run btrfs after it got uncorrectable errors and remount read-only several times (it might work better in some more usual use cases than mine); (1) not rebuilding initramfs after the change, making mount fail; (2) passing a different label to cryptsetup luksOpen than in /etc/crypttab, causing an infinite loop in initramfs.
I dislike exactly two things about the #Firefox reader mode: (1) it replaces the URL with an about:reader one, but keeps displaying the original one in the address bar (so I don't see why bookmarks are separate with and without it) (2) it's too common in Web design to make pages unreadable when it's disabled.
https://xkcd.com/1205/ might be a good rule when working, but not when using a computer at home: automating the task might be more fun, I might learn more, while spending much more time than just doing the task. (I'm not sure this would convince me to learn the Emacs style of regular expressions; I always have to guess how many backslashes to add to turn a trivial POSIX ERE into an Emacs regexp.)
Received the #fsfbulletin. I was surprised seeing the envelope with proper diacritics in my name and address when Polish companies still use replacement character boxes in invoices.
