How do you easily toggle your audio or video during a video call?

You re-program a USB keyboard to send the right keyboard shortcuts to the computer.

Its not easy to compare multiple ways of self-hosting an IndieWeb home page. Almost all methods require some trade-off. The trick, now, is to figure out the best one.

I am very happy to recommend Neuron. It is a tool.

Have been using it for a couple of days now and it is a very good tool. It packs a lot of features in its minimalist simplicity and that is what makes it so elegant. Much to learn to be fully productive with it!

Thank you Sridhar.

@noorul @abhas all up to us. Long way for us to go.

We should atleast have the habit of having a webring like advogato.org or any of the programming planet.* sites, for personal websites.

I consider myself to be a sysadmin. More than a “job description”, its an attitude and value system. And today, on SysAdmin Day, as a tribute to sysadmins and hackers everywhere, I thought I must share my perspective about why I am a sysadmin.
