PSA: duckduckgo has !-keywords that redirect searches to other sites
like
!w - wikipedia
!g - if you want to be a heretic
!aur - the AUR lol
!gh - github
!wa - wolfram alpha

so to search wikipedia for the article on crabs you type
!w crab

if you set ddg as yr default search you can jump to literally all of the webbed site searches with minimal keystrokes :blobcat:

@sir Best feature of git.sr.ht? Push to an empty repository and this happens:

```
remote: We saved your changes, but this repository does not exist.
remote: Click here to create it:
remote: git.sr.ht/create?name=<snip>
remote: Your changes will be discarded in 20 minutes.
```

:awesome:

What level of cognative dissonance do you need to have to think that anyone wants to see your marketing emails? How do you sleep when literally everyone hates you
