The One with the Thoughts of Frans

In contrast to Dropbox, Discord doesn't try to hide logging in.
Basic support for E Ink refreshes on a limited number of Android E Ink devices.
I don't understand why so many places make signing in so hard.
At least they were nice enough to abide by my rules. :)
A 16 character maximum? How am I supposed to work with that? Grmbl.
mklink is a rather useful command for shuffling large directories around without requiring application support (e.g., large games from HDD to SSD or vice versa).
A recent update broke Enpass. Hopefully it'll be fixed again soon, but in the meantime…
As one of the maintainers of KOReader, a versatile a document and image viewer, I'm proud to announce the latest release.
Since I don't use Steam that much I don't know when it was added, but it's nice that Steam is no longer tiny on my UHD monitor.
Such a rare occurrence, how nice that I can resize it, I thought. Until I actually tried to resize it.
UX
A new stable release, with support for BQ/Fnac devices!
Everything to the right of the breadcrumbs is a giant button to activate location entry. Very elegant.
To use the composite and transform transition it needs something to composite to.
The simplest way is to add synclient TapButton3=2 to your ~/.bashrc.
Many improvements to crengine, new MuPDF, and much more!
