#whyistayonmastodon sounds like an giant undecipherable mess of sounds.

Traps are great to end your scripts cleanly, whether they run successfully or not. I should use them more often in my scripts.😇

quickie: You can set up abbreviations, which will be expanded automatically by .
Set up with `iab abbr Abbreviation`. When you type 'abbr' in insert mode, will expand 'abbr' after a <spave> with the long word, in this case 'Abbreviation'.
Set up different abbreviations for ftypes by adding them to the respective files in `$VIM_CONFIG/ftplugin/`, for example `~/.config/nvim/ftplugin/markdown.vim` for markdown files.

"Linuxmusic.rocks aims to be musician friendly database of linux available software and plugins (taking kvr as an example but with better linux world coverage)
Only linux native software/plugin are in database, we dont wanna focus on wine-related stuff, as we would fall into every other vst database.
Each software/plugin in the database was runned successfully under either ardour, carla (DSSI) or standalone."

Dear USGS, why do I have to first download a tool before I can download files from your site 'in bulk'? What is so wrong about plain old HTTP(s) downloads and zipping several files on the server on the fly?

Just found out that Sweden once had emergency storage of food, water, medicine, fuel, and gas masks enough to last the entire population for 6-12 months in the event of war or natural disasters. I mostly knew that part.

I didn't know they had a whole system of making sure it was kept fresh and usable, which is great obviously, but crucially it only cost 20 SEK per person and year. That's around ~2 EUR/USD, or a total of around 200 million SEK at current population levels.
