I'm selling a series of NFTs of a portrait of Charles Ponzi. DM if you'd like one.

I just learned that in GNOME Shell if you have two windows "snapped" to each side of the screen (left + right, taking 50% width for each) you can resize BOTH windows at the same time, adjusting the ratio of screen!

This is great for my side-by-side video call window and ZimWiki notes workflow (I like more space for notes ;) )!

Somewhen recently I learned that there is a "standard" in Germany for sharing medical information with emergency services. It consists of a small green plastic tube with a sheet of paper that contains information about health conditions, allergies, medication and emergency contacts, which you put into your fridge, and a small green sticker that you put on the inside of your apartment door.
I like the simple, analog design, and I think more countries should adopt it.

My computer is not your billboard 

I don't consent to downloading, executing or viewing your ads. You are not entitled to my time, my attention, my computer.

I don't care how much you want the money. How much you say you need it. If you don't want me freeloading, put a paywall; I might not pay, but I don't object to being denied a webpage. I object to ads.

There are no acceptable or ethical ads. Ads are distractions, annoyances, disruptions. They interfere with people's work, fun, mental health.

@zwol I'll be curious to compare yours with mine, from 2011.

Though my conclusion today would be more strongly to not use C, period.
