I'm giving "LanguageTool" a try which is a Grammarly alternative that works with LibreOffice.

You know what, these new foldable phones might just be the thing that gets me to upgrade from my OnePlus 3.

I've always wanted a device I could carry around and jot down notes on, but typical smartphones are too small for that. I used to have a small notebook for that purpose, but I lost it.

It would be cool if software centers on Linux would merge the Snap, Flatpak, and repository versions of an app into one single listing and just let you choose which one to install.

Just found out about Firefly III, which is a self hosted and open source web personal finance portal that let's you create budgets, manage transactions, and look at pretty graphs.

Personally I'm going to stick with Homebank for my personal needs, but Firefly is good if you need to access your finances on your phone.

If the @kde team ever develops any sort of digital assistant they should name it Kai.

Here's an idea. A Disqus competitor that supports ActivityPub. It would go a long way to allowing people to comment on news articles using their Mastodon account's and via whatever frontend they prefer.

I swear that every time I upgrade to a new version of Kibana they've added 5 new things to the sidebar.

Finds library that does what I need! 🎉 Show more

Google charts is a buggy mess. Right now I'm dealing with the same exact JS code both working on desktop and not working on mobile. 😐

Goodbye to the Opportunity Rover. May you rest in peace.

I think a big difficulty in building peer-to-peer search engines like YaCy is the lack of fraud resistant link graph to rank webpages. There is no way to know whether one page really links to another without crawling and parsing it yourself, and that's too slow for real time applications.

Technologically you could store the graph in a distributed hash table but that doesn't really solve the fraud problem since anyone could modify the data.

AdNauseam is a browser extension that both hides and clicks on all ads for you. I think it's mainly designed to confuse advertising systems.

Just found out about Zotero, which is a tool for organizing bookmarks to articles and papers. It also has a browser extension to save articles and integrates with LibreOffice for bibliographies.

I really wish that KDE would just use the ~/Templates folder like every other desktop.

Seems like my Firefox might have some kinda of memory leak. It was using over 2 GB of RAM with only two pages open (Reddit and readthedocs). Then I restarted it and opened the same pages, now it's using 150 MB.

It would be cool if the Tor browser included a built in toggle for enabling a relay on your machine.

I always love the National Aquarium of New Zealand's picks for their Penguin Wall of Fame.
