The most useless change logs are those that simply say "We improved our app to be even better". No sh*t, sherlock. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

For anyone trying to setup their multifunction printer for scanning on , don't forget the 'scanner' flag in hplip πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ
I was wasting half an hour googling, until I figured that out πŸ˜…

Best noise-cancelling headphones currently? I need the most isolation from annoying crying kids etc. on public transport. Any recommendations or are the QC35 the way to go? Cost is a secondary concern πŸ˜‰

All truly very valid points! I have been eyeballing Alpine - but dropping and not replacing grsecurity is a downside IMHO.

Arch does have 'Linux-hardened' available as a package - but is not an option due to my unhealthy hatred for the hellish invention that is systemd.

So is killing their last notebook with "legacy"-ports. Cool, I wonder how many people already had to connect a -C stick or USB-C mouse to their cool new . Sure USB-C is nice and all, but I want at least one "legacy" port, so I don't have to carry a dongle all the time, because 90% of the industry didn't just switch.

Twidere is one of the worst Twitter client I have ever seen. So many bugs..

So after experiencing some annoying limitations and bugs in I switched back to good old . Can't say I am happier πŸ˜€

I tried twice but I still didn't manage. I want to download an app from the Google Play Store that is only available in a different country, but I didn't manage to find out how to change the country..
Does anyone have experience with this and knows how? Google's own how-to didn't work (literally a menu option is missing).

Happy to see commiting on providing updates for their phones for 3 years now. And new features for 2 years πŸ˜€
And it is affecting current devices like the 3/3T and 5/5T too πŸ˜€

An important piece of context I'm not sure everybody has: OpenSSH is the single best piece of computer networking software ever made. It is the Swiss army knife of networking, an internet power user's chef's spatula.

I wanna make sure we're on the same page about this.

It has occurred to me that to become an expert on something, all you really have to do is live with it.

People at work sometimes ask me how I have so many random tips on tiny edge cases of this or that. It's because I use this stuff every day. I don't go home to Windows or Mac. I live and work on Linux, using open source tools. You get really familiar with these things after 365*N days of use.

So, is pretty cool and all, but the fact that a shortcut that's hard wired into my brain makes the whole system freeze without any way to recover makes it quite useless. Also, poor video performance and lack of full screen apps isn't helping my view.

Am I awake? What year is it?
I must have fallen asleep while tidying up those log files... Sorry about that.

Great, so I can consistently crash . Seems like a pretty good software πŸ™„

Show up to site to test. Fully kitted out.

Don’t have ethernet dongle.

I fucking hate β€œmodern” computers.

@StuC I was actually trying to forward a whole USB bus (I installed a separate USB controller card), however that didn't work. But thanks to your tip, I googled how to create a USB qube and using that I forwarded the WiFi dongle to sys-net, which now works perfectly πŸ˜ƒ
