Last week, we published Introduction to snapcraft, a detailed overview of the snap build process. We’d like to expand on the first lesson, and today, we will talk about parts and plugins, used in the build process of snaps.

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.

Love that someone took the time to package up Mosaic for modern Linux.

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?
