Few days ago I've realised that cryptocurrencies might be the "easy thing", the button that pays some money to authors that Stallman always gives as solution to sharing and compensation in his talks. Cryptocurrencies are pure software. As such they do not have additional costs and are easy to implement an integration for payment. Don't know why I haven't seen it until now. Might be the acceptance that cryptocurrencies are receiving lately that made me realise it.
Just killed by accident the Trisquel "update-manager --dist-upgrade" process. Oh the pain and misery!

Ecphoneme - a browser addon for faster searches
I'm proud to announce my first Firefox addon Ecphoneme. It was inspired by DuckDuckGo !bang commands. For a first release it supports only few websites that I (might) use.
Of course it is free software (GNU Affero GPL v3 or later). Hosted at Gitorious and Mozilla addon pages. Any feedback is welcomed.Show all 11 replies@Ivaylo Valkov The trick is having nothing but "%s" after "?search_query=".
It might be easier to just add YouTube to your Firefox's search, if it isn't already, and then go to "Manage Search Engines..." select YouTube and click "Edit Keyword..." make the keyword !yp.
Then entering "!yp mickey my friend" will kick you to YouTube results containing an awesome remix.
If you're having trouble getting it to work, others probably do too, that alone is a good enough reason for your extension to exist :-]@Ivaylo Valkov Wait, an even easier way to do it, just right click any search input form and click "Add a Keyword for this Search..." and it will do all of the necessary work for you.
I didn't know that, very cool!
I use this feature a lot, for example a have a quick search bookmark for Google Translate.
I bookmarked: http://translate.google.com/translate_t?hl=en&sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&text=%s
With the keyword: trans
When I need to translate a phrase like "Kühles Kind!", a language I don't understand, I can simply enter "trans Kühles Kind!" and go directly to the Detect Language to English Google translation.
So the search extensions keywords aren't the only way to get the functionality, like TildeHash.com doesn't have a search extension, but I have a quick search bookmark for it, myself.
Hacky browser session restore
I had a lot of tabs opened and for some reason the browser refused to restore the session, no matter what.
Well, I've hacked it!
grep -E "http[:\/\/a-zA-Z0-9\%._\?\=-]+" sessionstore.js -o |xargs abrowser
I have a lot of useless URLs opened, but it is better than nothing.
Pump.io notes editing
Does Pump.io support editing of notes? If it does, is there a desktop client that supports this?
GNOME weird application renaming
Can somebody share a link with the discussion about the renaming/simplifying the names of all integrated GNOME applications? I don't understand why they've changed the names of everything. I'm curious about the motivation behind this. I just don't get why and how the change helps.
Morning coffee, favourite cup and not having annoying job to go to. #priceless #notinhurry
Switch to Jabber! NOW!
Facebook discontinues chat in mobile app and forces messenger which collects way more (unnecessary) data. If you use Facebook, now is your chance to switch to pure Jabber client - over Facebook or not (not not not).
