#GNU has so much cool software that gets so little exposure. Ran across `source-highlight` today, which does what it says on the tin: takes source code and generates a highlighted version in any of bunch of formats. By defaults it generates an HTML file, but it also supports the the `esc` output format, which encodes using escape sequences suitable for viewing on command line, even with Emacs' shell. 😎
Found a date handling bug in my RSS aggregator software because Google dated a post on their blog a year in the future (28 June 2019 instead of 28 June 2018). https://www.blog.google/products/pixel/four-tips-taking-delectable-food-photos-pixel-2/
#Oculus just announced a coop VR heist game "Covert" from White Elk Studios, which I had never heard of, but was apparently founded by folks from the God of War team! When I went to look up their other work, I found "Eclipse: Edge of Light", but it's apparently not available on Gear VR or Go, only Daydream. Is it too much to ask for a port? 😜 https://www.oculus.com/blog/announcing-covert-a-couch-co-op-heist-game-coming-to-oculus-go-and-gear-vr/
The incomparable Andy Steward wrote a new #Emacs extension allowing us to run any #Qt program in Emacs to extend Emacs!? I’m just staring at the screenshots.
Although I can run #emacs from within Termux on my Chromebook, I tend to use Caret for better responsiveness. The problem is getting Caret to work with Emacs bindings, but after some tinkering, I discovered C-, which opens settings for the embedded Ace component, and that allows me to select Emacs as my key binding scheme. It doesn't play nicely with Caret's shortcuts, and it doesn't persist across restart, but it's a start!
It's one thing to take over half your own website to pester me to sign up for your email newsletter, but it's a whole different level when the largest element on the page is a recaptcha box for the sign up. What leet hack do they imagine that captcha is thwarting?

Got around to installing Gallium OS on my aging C720. Some networking flakiness, but otherwise just right. Runs minetest like a charm!
