A couple of command-line tools I’ve recently switched to using:

  • yazi as file manager instead of lf (fast and, for me at least, more intuitive and better handles default editor)

https://terminaltrove.com/yazi/

  • ouch for compression/decompression from CLI instead of getting the fucking unintuitive flags wrong every fucking time

https://terminaltrove.com/ouch/

(Thanks to @orhun for the recent link to Terminal Trove for the new finds.)

PS. I’m running fish shell, so I also added a couple of abbreviations (I use abbreviations when I don’t want to type out the original command but I also don’t want to forget it):

abbr --add --global compress 'ouch compress'
abbr --add --global decompress 'ouch decompress'

Also note that Yazi has a function to let you switch to the folder you’re in when you exit:

https://yazi-rs.github.io/docs/quick-start

(I have regular Yazi aliased – in this case an alias makes more sense – to ff and the cd version to cc.)

@brothersoul Just use it, it’s the best way to learn (and these tools are all available cross-platform so you can use them on a Mac, etc.)

And if you’re on Windows, you can always dip your toe in using WSL.

@minimaxheadroom @orhun Yeah, Rust/cargo is perfect for Silverblue. I installed the rust tool chain in a distrobox VM and just install rust tools with cargo and they’re also available on my host (I work on the host) as they’re installed in your user account. It’s a much better workflow than fling everything in a container imho.

@minimaxheadroom @orhun Haha, I wouldn’t say wise. I just use export on an ad hoc basis. Can post the command when I’m back at my desk tomorrow if you like :)

If the price of admission to your community is genocide denial, the price is too damn high. No, thank you.

@TLB73 I don’t want to assume that for the whole of Digital Courage. AFAIK they do good work. As far as we know it’s just some guy who has an account on their server. So I’m going to wait and see what happens. If I’m proven wrong, then it’ll be sad but hey 🤷‍♂️

You think I’m going to apologise for opposing the genocide of the Palestinian people? Fuck you. How dare you?

@nabz123 It’s not about who it’s happening to but that it is happening at all. The whole idea behind “never again” is never again for anyone.

Opposing genocide isn’t antisemitic.

Saying that opposing genocide is antisemitic is antisemitic.

You know what’s inhumane? Genocide. You know who’s committing genocide? Israel.

You have zero moral standing to assess me. Those who commit and are complicit in genocide never do.

So yes, most definitely, goodbye.

So it turns out Yanis isn’t banned from Germany and it was just a lie told by the German police to stop him from speaking at the event?

@lontrachen Well if he’s lying, it would be trivial for the German police/government to refute it. There were people recording at the event with their phones so it’s also possible the exchange was caught on video and it would probably also get the two lawyers stated as witnesses disbarred if they willingly perpetuated a lie. So let’s see but I find it highly unlikely. Yanis is macho and stubborn but, in my experience, at least, I haven’t known him to lie.

Someone remind me again, is it democracy we have in the EU or… no, wait, my bad, it’s the Single Market, that’s it!

@quitty > Free speech is being sacrificed with some regularity to retain peace, much to the benefit of the population.

Ssh, mustn’t upset the plebs, eh? Their little minds couldn’t possibly take being exposed to dangerous ideas like maybe we shouldn’t be complicit in genocide (you know, after that whole Holocaust oopsie). Daddy knows best.

I took the first photo with my belly. Sometimes there was no time, then there was no mood. And today, as we say - the stars aligned - the weather is good outside, I found my old dress, which stretches well and I got into it😅
