@fatboy as much as i hated it at the start... moc (run as mocp) is designed to run in a server client fashion.
$ mocp -S (starts the server)
$ mocp -a /path/to/music (add your music lib)
$ mocp -p (to play)
$ mocp -l http://url/to/onlineradio
close xterm no issues
$ mocp -i (check current song info
$ mocp -G (pause/unpause)
$ mocp -s (stop)
you can close the terminal after any and every of those commands. open a new one and pass some more commands
wish someone wrote this doc ;)
It never helps to have only as much joy in teaching someone as much (or as little) as they get joy from learning
However, in my humble experience, when the passion to teach overshoots passion to learn by a lot, those efforts are often either wasted or underappreciated or taken credit for.
Here's to hoping and wishing that those who share and teach may never run out of enthusiasm despite the often harsh realities.
At the moment, I'm happy that someone learned something practical from me.
Pegasus is a piece of malware - a virus - with the sole purpose to infect mobile devices. The eavesdropping made possible by Pegasus violates laws. Its trade must be banned - just like the trade with nuclear weapons is banned.

Just discovered and fixed a (potentially serious) bug in Dolphin, KDE's file manager and generic file model:
Sorting by size would cause an unstable sort order under certain circumstances.
This sounds innocent at first, until you realize this also causes it to expand a folder's content into the wrong view parent: you expand folder A, but all its files show up below folder B.
You may think you're deleting an empty folder, but it's not actually empty 😟

Ars Technica ran an explanation of why Audacity's spyware isn't really spyware: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2021/07/no-open-source-audacity-audio-editor-is-not-spyware/
"Data necessary for law enforcement, litigation and authorities' requests (if any)"
> the odds are rather good that any given company will comply with legitimate law enforcement requests.
...but why would Audacity be collecting that information in the first place?
I. Don't. Want. My. Apps. Spying. On. Me.
"It feels like the last 20 years we've spent rebuilding all the stuff Unix users had builtin 20 to 40 years ago: online editors, shared home directories, etc. All sorts of things are repeating again.
One of the things Unix had was composability. If there's a table on a website now and one on another website, and you wanna join them? Fuck you."

So, Audacity is dead to me. Hope this gets forked soon, because it’s a great editor for tweaking samples occasionally.

is it too bad to stop watching something, especially a series, after some themes and some character traits that I can't get myself to align with keep continuing on every episode?
Sure, I do keep my judgments in check irl, but i think it's fair game to have choice in not watching the shows with characters that i internally judge to be horrible
Also why it is important to keep even watch history more private.
I think binge watching is as lame as FOMO.
@brycec That very well could be, but in that case, I'm almost less sympathetic. Who searches for answers and doesn't read the timestamp? Stuff moves along. If you're copying-and-pasting code from 2011, you're gonna have a bad time.
