I use rsync for virtually every mv/cp-like command that is not a single file from one local disk to a different location on the same local disk. It definitely has some advantages.

I just got a NAS and downloaded all my GOG and Humble games into it. Didn't even occur to me that something like this existed. I'm going to have to give it a try soon, since it sounds like Linux through Wine is supported.

Recently shot myself in the foot after buying a flagship sony, only to find they do not support bootloader unlock specifically on the US variant. It feels like a conspiracy, since it is practically the same hardware and software otherwise.

Still a great phone but I literally purchased it specifically because I thought it had all of these features and an unlockable bootloader

Page not found? For the ccc link, video works though

Honestly I still often look up alternate documentation, searching "how do I do x?" instead of reading the actual documentation. I think the official documentation tends to be very technical about everything you need to know about the modules, etc. But if you're trying to get one particular thing done in a hurry, finding something someone else has already done and copying it as much easier.

That said, I do believe the official documentation gets better with age/the more you come back to it.

Sometimes all you need is a good heart.

I haven't even watched the unveiling yet, much less read any white papers on it, but from what little I know it kind of sounds like Veilid is the perfect answer for this?

Buddy at the local hackerspace was showing off his homemade Geiger counter attachment at last night's open house. I'll share this with him and see if he can elaborate

I had just started pirating movies when I watched this; I stopped a few minutes in, ran to the store, and bought it. Zero regrets, that movie was great.
