Czy ktoś tu zna i używa / testował takie rozwiązanie jak Wazah ?

Polecane przez NetworkChuck'a na yt. Administruję ok 130 desktopów na windzie10 w pracy i zastanawiam się na ile byłoby mi to pomocne a na ile wzrośnie ruch w sieci oraz czy wymaga to serwera podpiętego 24/7 do sieci czy mogę mieć to u siebie na laptopie który noszę?

Eien großartige Runde BAR auf einer Metal-Only-Karte mit @meldrian und @xilef gegen 2 Computer-Gegner.

Gespielt übrigens auf @opensuse mit KDE Plasma 6 unter .

Und das ohne Probleme! Höchstwerte der Team-Einheiten auf dem Feld: meldrian 1800, xilef 1000 und comrad 400. Die KI hielt mit zusammen knapp 600 Einheiten dagegen.

Pipe Viewer 1.8.9 is released today - https://www.ivarch.com/programs/pv.shtml

Pipe Viewer - pv - is a terminal-based tool for monitoring the progress of data through a Unix pipeline. It can be inserted into any normal pipeline between two processes to give a visual indication of how quickly data is passing through, how long it has taken, how near to completion it is, and an estimate of how long it will be until completion.

This release adds a new SI units feature supplied by Kevin Ruddy, incorporates French translations supplied by Thomas Bertels, and fixes bugs with TMPDIR support and blocking output.

PV uses the resources of the @Codeberg platform for free software development.

Handy Calc tip! Press Ctrl+; to insert the current date, or Shift+Ctrl+; for the current time. Want a date and time that's always updating? Use the =NOW() function. https://help.libreoffice.org/latest/en-US/text/scalc/01/04060102.html

The plotting, statistical, and data selection tools in the mapdata.py data explorer (https://pypi.org/project/mapdata/) can be used even if you don't have any map data. Just add dummy latitude and longitude values to the data table. Zeroes will do. The map and the dummy columns can both be hidden, and you can then explore the data table with the other available tools.

Cronjobs are quite basic stuff. Mostly you create “simple, stupid” jobs without output … that just run. Or should.

How do you check if a job was successful? Just trust them? Watching each log? On each of your systems?

How do you detect if the last job execution was successful but does not run anymore?

My simple approach:

For 20 years I add a wrapper in front of my commands.

Docs: https://www.axel-hahn.de/docs/cronwrapper/index.html

Source: https://github.com/axelhahn/cronwrapper

cronstatus.sh shows the status of all local cronjobs or details of a single cronjob.

Want to break free from OneNote? help Joplin test the experience

Joplin team-member, Pedro, is giving OneNote import finishing touches and to test it he needs real life data. So, if you can provide real life data for its testing, you'd make it the experience of moving to Joplin so much easier for thousands users breaking free from OneNote

I'm looking for an audio file to text converter. I want to feed an audio file into an app and have it automagically output a text file. Nothing fancy, just quick and reasonably accurate. Thanks for any tips.

support for and without ends 2025-10:

If you're still using their products by then, you have definitely given up digital sovereignty and you're happy to embrace the possibility of industrial by US companies.

Yes, I know what this means.

And you're then consuming services where an unknown number of foreign/external players has infiltrated and owns administrative permissions: https://www.cisa.gov/sites/default/files/2024-04/CSRB_Review_of_the_Summer_2023_MEO_Intrusion_Final_508c.pdf

It would definitely improve the situation a lot when parts of the large amount of money that is transferred to #Microsoft now finds its way to alternative #FOSS #Groupware solutions.

I'm sorry but I have to quickly let out some disappointment with #Thunderbird. Why do the devs decide to implement huge new features like an entirely new Chat (Matrix), when the basic mail features don't even work? For instance, the search. Search something with the full search (Ctrl-K), 0 results. Search for the same thing with "quicksearch" (Ctrl-Shift-K)? Works.
The calendar? Processing event invites that are more complex than the absolute simplest? Fails more often than not.

@mina@berlin.social avatar


First of all: I am completely happy with #Thunderbird but the problem you're mentioning is very common, especially in Open Source Software, but can be found in almost every aspect of technology and crafts:

The last mile is always the hardest. It's so much more fun to do the first 90% of something, then the last 10%.

It's a very human thing.
