If it's about notes and getting them synchronized, you may want to have a look at CopyQ as well (just posted about it). It has a plugin for Synchronization, even in combination with encryption. I installed Zim desktop wiki ages ago and somehow never started to actually use it...  lol

^Oh ... I understood the sync hype, but it is not applicable to me ... I don't have all those *clouds and whatnot. I just like better look and more options in QOwnNotes.

CopyQ ... I'm sure this is nice piece of software, but somehow I manage to do everything with Ctrl-{c,v,x} or  Ctrl-Alt-{c,v} in urxvt. Thanks for the recommendation, though.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

Not really Cool Random Internet Stuff ... but probably worth mentioning: EFAIL vulnerabilities in OpenPGP and S/MIME.

...
The EFAIL attacks exploit vulnerabilities in the OpenPGP and S/MIME standards to reveal the plaintext of encrypted emails. In a nutshell, EFAIL abuses active content of HTML emails, for example externally loaded images or styles, to exfiltrate plaintext through requested URLs.
...
The attacker changes an encrypted email in a particular way and sends this changed encrypted email to the victim. The victim's email client decrypts the email and loads any external content, thus exfiltrating the plaintext to the attacker.
...

I'm not sure how exploitable this is IRL, but somehow it seems dangerous enough. I hope they will fix that soon.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

A search on google-analytics (wanted to know if I was right to have it disabled in noscript) brought up this page:
Google Analytics and privacy: What you need to know
Had a look round the site and found this:
The ultimate guide to desktop Linux security
I know the web is awash with helpful sites these days, but this one seemed to have a lot of quite readable articles on privacy/security/censorship - aimed at general computer users, not Linux-specific - that looked reasonably correct in the advice they gave:
https://www.comparitech.com/

They did seem to be promoting a specific VPN provider a bit, but otherwise not bad I thought, for us unter-geeks. smile

G'MIC is a full-featured open-source framework for image processing, distributed under the CeCILL free software licenses (LGPL-like and/or GPL-compatible). It provides several different user interfaces to convert / manipulate / filter / visualize generic image datasets, ranging from 1d scalar signals to 3d+t sequences of multi-spectral volumetric images, hence including 2d color images.

These kinds of tools are so good...

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

appleseed

appleseed is an open source, physically-based global illumination rendering engine primarily designed for animation and visual effects.

There is a Blender plugin as well smile

It offers several physically-based (measured) shaders for metal, plastic & glass, a progressive photon mapping integrator and full spectral rendering (31 bands from 400-700 nm).

No Metropolis Light Transport or bidirectional path tracing though, which is a shame.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

I don't know if this should go here or in Terminator vs urxvt vs others (1 mor time), but I have stumbled upon yet another terminal called kitty.

It seems to be a simple terminal application, but has a functionality of both screen/tmux and terminator-like multitab features. In other words, it seems to be fully able to replace 'some-terminal-with-tabs'+tmux/screen workflow, with single application. And (configurable) predefined sensible keyboard shortcuts. For example:

# create (named) tabs
New tab        ctrl+shift+t
Close tab       ctrl+shift+q
Next tab        ctrl+shift+right
Previous tab  ctrl+shift+left
...

and

# create windows in a single tab (various layout possible)
New window        ctrl+shift+enter
Close window       ctrl+shift+w
Next window        ctrl+shift+]
Previous window  ctrl+shift+[
...

Here are some more:

Increase font size       ctrl+shift+equal
Decrease font size      ctrl+shift+minus
Restore font size        ctrl+shift+backspace
Edit kitty config file   ctrl+shift+f2
...

And it has 'Ctrl-Shift-C' and 'Ctrl-Shift-V' as a copy and paste, respectively.

As one can see, it is heavily keyboard oriented.

Also, benchmarks by program author says that it is almost the fastes terminal emulator ...

Unfortunately, it is available only in buster (and sid), but it may be worth watching for it, once BL goes Lithium ...

I think, I will slowly replace my urxvt+tmux workflow with the kitty terminal ... will let you know if I stumble on something 'not so nice'.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

^Quite, xterm probably has the smallest memory footprint. Nevertheless, this kitty, despite its name, seems nice. Of course, it depends on workflow one needs ...

BTW, ps_mem, is this the python script? Or something else?

EDIT:
Hm ... :

ps_mem:
 10.6 MiB +   4.2 MiB =  14.8 MiB	urxvt (4)
 35.4 MiB +   9.7 MiB =  45.2 MiB	kitty

Not particularly suitable for low mem setups ...

^^ great! i can nuke 25GB/month into the cloud for free!
no need to open a cumpersome (sic) terminal anymore and actually type something like rm -rf *. effing typos, the cloud takes crae of it.

PS: don't forget to nuke those backups as well!

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

Ok I think this is neat-o.

The .bashrc generator. Since I'm not that good at memorizing all these switches and whatnot in linux scripting if found it very easy to customize my bash prompt.

http://bashrcgenerator.com/

So now it's set to:

export PS1="\A \d - \w \n[\u]\\$\[$(tput sgr0)\]"

Which looks like so:

23:44 Fri Jun 01 - ~/Downloads
[temetka]$

where ~/Downloads changes to what ever you cd into. So if you go to /usr/local/bin for example, it will look like this:

23:45 Fri Jun 01 - /usr/local/bin
[temetka]$

I like knowing at a glance what directory I'm in when I'm in the terminal and having the clock is handy, and why not?

Anyway, I just thought I'd share that with you all. smile
