@diddledan @killyourfm @popey I've been promised a product "in a later batch" in the past from someone closely associated with the company. The product never arrived, nor was there evidence the earlier batch ever shipped. I wouldn't believe a word until real backers have the device in their hands.

My Android device gives the best advice! Clear up those memes!

My "Internet friend" Taras Young has written a book - "Nuclear War in the UK". It's out on October 9th, and available for pre-order now. I've just ordered my own copy. If the cold war, nuclear threats & publications interest you, maybe take a look. 🚀 🇬🇧

@popey It's disabled by default in some distros but if you go to Settings > Preferences > Shortcuts you should be able to find and set it.

This probably already exists and you all know it but I don't, so I'm asking. Sometimes I want to "Select All" in a terminal (usually GNOME Terminal). Is there some magic key-combo I can use to select all the existing history for copying to another place? Currently mouse-selecting

Been play(test)ing Cecconoid from @korruptor on . It's a brutally hard 8-bit inspired, flick-screen, twin-stick-shooter 🎮 I *love* it. You might too. It'll be out soon I'm told on Itch and Steam.

I love the film Back to the Future. I also love the video game Half-Life. Someone made a good thing by combining them.

So many times I see/hear people in the Linux community say something like: "I don't use that, nobody I know uses that, nobody uses that". It's infuriating that with a sample size of near-zero they claim *nobody* uses a particular tool/technology. People then parrot this nonsense.
