I've just found out about making LaTeX documents in NeoVim and I'm in love.

Seems this was fixed a week ago, feel free to update on 5.9 kernel with nvidia drivers.

Faculty is using some platform for lectures which has ability to automatically remove videos of lectures after some specific time, usually a week. Their reason for using that platform is "copyright", but platform is using embedded videos from YouTube and links of those videos are so easy to acquire and download with youtube-dl. I'm thinking now what could be best possible solution for them to preserve copyright, any ideas?

LetsEncrypt recently reiterated the need for setting TLSA records for all of their certificates, including backup ones, not just the current X3. Here you can find convenient cheat-sheet with ready-to-use DNS records and appropriate hashes:

Proprietary nvidia driver isn't supported by kernel 5.9, you'll have to wait mid-november for nvidia to make it usable.

I've learned in Snowdens "Permanent Record" that CIA and other intelligence agencies are hosted by Amazon AWS and Snowden makes a point that decision by US government is not a very good one. I think its one of the reasons why Amazon got in position to pay 0$ in taxes, they litteraly own US inteligence IT infrastructure and they have power to get away with it.

Yikes. Nano Adblocker / Defender has been bought for an undisclosed amount and under new ownership. The privacy policies for the Chromium versions have been removed.

KeepassDX from F-Droid seems totally broken to me, I can unlock database but its content isn't shown. Anyone else with same problem? Previous version worked just fine

Remember when FSF demanded source code for fixing Windows after Windows 7 reached EOL? Maybe they will find something useful in these recent leaks?

TIL that you can paste Latex numeric formulas (with Latex formating) into Wolfram Alpha and get final result

'yay -Rns' should be aliased as 'nay' upon every fresh install of Arch based distro.

Some bad news for folks who are fans of #uMatrix. It's being archived and no longer being developed :
github.com/uBlockOrigin/uMatri

Can't say I didn't see this coming since maintaining a plugin, particularly as an open source project, is often a thankless job with many personal down sides

I hope it can still continue, if not as uMatrix, then as something else. I really don't like to fiddle with uBlock Origin to get the same functionality

I've just recently found out about Windows BTRFS driver: github.com/maharmstone/btrfs
I've tested it with my flash drive and works great. I don't have need for instant snapshots but for r/w access on both Windows and Linux machines with constant transfer speed (NTFS transfer speed tends to drop). So if you have that need I very much recommend this.

I was just watching "The hidden secrets of money" series by Mike Maloney. It seems little bit cheesy at first sight but its very educational.

Feature-Policy header is replaced by Permission-Policy, it has same purpose as Feature-Policy but name of header should be more descriptive of its purpose, and some syntax is changed. You can read more about it here:

You can copy/paste Permission-Policy header for disabling all permissions here:
