I have a love_hate relationship with underscores

Chromecast YouTube app started showing your recommended videos when you connect, so I unlinked my Google account. Now my TV always recommends a kids' show or 4K landscape video. Or 4K Christmas fireplace. Definitely an improvement but I'd prefer the simple "ready to cast" screen that most Chromecast apps have 🙃

@brianna I'm on fishshell.com, which's suggestions prefer commands that were run in the current directory. And yeah, that is useful.

I wouldn't either want it fully separated, though. Many commands are completely independent of what directory you run them in, so I'd want access to them in my history/suggestions, even if I've navigated into a folder.

What if every directory had its own bash history, similar to how each tab of a web browser has its own history? ...I'm not sure if I'd like it but I could see it working for me, maybe

The "Win" key is the most inaccurately-named key because pressing it minimizes the game and makes you lose

Google updated the YouTube app so casting to a Chromecast now gives the option to use a smart-TV-style remote control with arrow keys and an OK button... Thank gosh I can now control my TV using awkward on-screen menus!! What a great new feature!!!

Minecraft is a game with so many updates you definitely want to receive, if you are pirating it then eventually you'll give in and buy it because it's a PITA to keep re-pirating it every time there's an update. Or at least that's what happened to every person I know who pirated Minecraft to try it out.

Maintainer of the Minecraft Unofficial Linux Launcher seems pretty burnt out. Apparently people keep repackaging his launcher along with pirated APKs for the game. It's frustrating that has to demotivate someone from making the game available to people who did buy it. I like being able to run it on Linux even though it has some major glitches github.com/ChristopherHX/mcpel

First I failed to find rare geodes 3300 blocks away from civilization, now it turns out there were 4 geodes clustered together in one area barely 1000 blocks away instead. Is my luck with worldgen actually fantastic for once??

You have to shenan before you can shenanigan.

Just realized I've applied updates using Discover every day when I turn on my laptop for months now, and I could save myself a click if I make KDE Discover open by default when I log in :P

Lol, Niccolò Ve mentions in the latest video how you can run Latte-Dock in Gnome. Running alien panels on Linux DEs is one of my hobbies, which is why I have LXPanel installed on KDE Neon. I need better hobbies 😅

I heard Raspberry Pi OS uses LXDE and I thought it was awesome, but no one told me Raspberry Pi OS uses Mutter. If you add a Workspaces Pager to LXPanel then it crashes the desktop because virtual workspaces don't work the same in Mutter as they do in the WMs LXDE was made for. Kind of a bad user experience lol. But the icons are pretty nice

90% my experience with "Save this webpage" is hitting ctrl+s out of instinct while typing something, then closing the dialog that appears because I'm in a web browser and it's not the type of saving I meant to do

Boosted because they just uploaded the video to YouTube where Linus says this.

I feel like the "Save this webpage" function of web browsers isn't very useful to 90% of websites anymore so maybe it should be... relabelled or something 🤔 "Save as HTML"? ... Doesn't help much. Idk

Apparently Linus Sebastian thinks hitting ctrl+S on a GitHub page should download the content inside the page instead of the HTML. I'm bewildered tbh. I can see the logic but... It's not shocking that it doesn't work that way? What

My single-user Mastodon instance should have a dislike button only on my posts, for myself to click

I made a Pinterest account the other day so I could save inspiration screenshots easily... So far I've done a lot of building actually. I'm learning how to make roofs! ...a little bit anyway. Roofs are tough

I've almost completed chapter 2 of Bug Fables. This game is extremely similar to Paper Mario TTYD and quite fun if you miss the old Mario RPGs.
