Re-upping this:

I made a curated list of Rust command-line utilities. I only use a handful, but all of the ones I listed look interesting to me.

Feel free to reply with any you think I missed (though i obviously reserve right not to add to my list)

@TheGibson curious what deck-making software you use

is there something between `cargo install <program>` (which I don't think will upgrade said program if already installed) and `cargo install --force <program>` (which seem to re-install the tool even if it's the same version number you already had installed)?

I want to upgrade a Rust tool only if there's a new version.

Is it weird that my Switch can only have 2 large games max downloaded at a time?

huh, TIL about Ricochet Refresh, a fork of the original Ricochet P2P messenger.

ok I have a genuine question: Why are almost all stories about malicious libraries in NPM? Is there something that other package managers have learned since then, or is Node just the most alluring target?

dang, guess I have to decide if System76's COSMIC DE (written in Rust?!) is worth leaving KDE for...

Any one here tried it yet? I am not a huge fan of GNOME...

wow, getopts is wild.

I can't figure out how to accept more than one options, but I kind of got lucky in that that would be rare for my tool

long shot, but does anyone have a tool that uses a machine learning model for taking good thumbnail images from a given video file?

Something like this maybe?

should I minimize the CSS file for my small personal website?

(P.S.: "tar: Cowardly refusing to create an empty archive" is a pretty fun error message)

ah, think I got it. Is this good/best-practice for Rust error handling (without using a separate crate)?
