Currently looking for a good #Slackbuilds package manager that's NOT sbopkg. I don't like its concept of using queue files; seems too clunky for me. I like how sbotools works, but that seems to be unmaintained now and may not work with Slackware 15 or 15-current. Slpkg seems to be the next best, but not sure since I've never used it. Anyone out there running #Slackware and using a tool for installing #Slackbuilds that isn't sbopkg? I'd love to hear your input on this.

Boosts appreciated. :flan_thumbs:

THE PROBLEM: You want to use Thunderbird 102 right now, but your client is not auto-updating.

THE SOLUTION: In order to ensure smooth, bug-free upgrades, we're rolling out the automatic update from Thunderbird 91 to 102 gradually. However, you can download Thunderbird 102 manually from thunderbird.net and install it in the same location you have Thunderbird 91 installed.

This will serve as an upgrade from 91 to 102, and your data, settings, and profile will be preserved.

The System76 Launch keyboard has prompted me to really analyze my typing.

I use my left thumb 100% of the time to hit the spacebar. Never realized it!

And that is why their split spacebar makes so much sense to me. Because now the right side is Backspace.

I TOTALLY get it now.

Apple & Google track you, no matter how hard you try: "Both iOS and Google Android transmit telemetry, despite the user explicitly opting out of this. iOS sends the MAC addresses of nearby devices, e.g. other handsets and the home gateway, to Apple together with their GPS location. Users have no opt out from this and currently there are few, if any, realistic options for preventing this data sharing."

@Yung_Lyun That was a great episode! I need to get a replacement gateway for my Xfinity service. Tired of them getting ~$15/mo from me and their box is trash. @ken_fallon @hpr
