I’m having a deja vu. I’ve seen this post before! Sometimes, duplicates are a good idea. Like data backups. Deja Dup is a handy tool, with support for local, remote and cloud locations, scheduling and desktop integration.

Razer announce the sunset of Ouya service in June. I backed the Ouya, and while they made (plenty of) mis-steps, it was a fun device with a good bunch of playable local multi-player games. Me & the kids have some happy memories playing Towerfall, No Brakes Valet and Bombsquad.

In 2017 I backed the Clockwork GameShell on Kickstarter. Now it's available via Amazon. Runs @debian , is a great kit to hack on 👩‍💻 has WiFi, 1200mAh battery, great display, and is a super portable retro gaming rig 🎮 Worth a look.

But the web isn't really usable with it.

Is there a word like "moreover" commonly used in European (non-en_GB) languages?
I have noticed over the years that I only ever hear that word said by people for whom en_GB / en_US isn't their first language. Is it taught in school as common vernacular among the English?

To ensure security and freshness, snaps refresh automatically in the background by default. But did you know it's possible to defer those updates, and control when they happen? Check out this guide to find out how! bit.ly/2LPExuR

The @Puri_sm Librem One saw quite surprising growth starting at 9pm BST (8pm GMT) on 15th May. Very odd numbers. Can someone explain this, another abnormal leap?
