I created a GoFundMe for helping me to buy the computer at

It's for a Librem 15 version 4 (Only if I get enough funds otherwise, any other ideas are welcomed). Thanks.

The Tragedy of systemd

Benno Rice systemd is, to put it mildly, controversial.

Make your Bash scripts detect more errors, add this line early in a script:

`set -eu -o pipefail`

`set -e` makes the script fail if a command exits with a non-zero exit status.

`set -u` lets the script fail when you're trying to use not yet defined variables.

`set -o pipefail` will pass on the error from a failed piped command, e.g. `false | true` will then fail, where it would have succeeded otherwise. This one is not available in dash, but in busybox' ash it is.

A simple way to browse the web with the IPv4 address of a remote machine:

Install and configure:
sudo apt install tsocks
cat << EOF > ~/.tsocks.conf
server =
server_type = 5
server_port = 1080

Run in a shell:
ssh -D 1080 myotherhost

Run in another shell:
tsocks firefox -P myotherprofile --no-remote

WARNING: IPv6 connections are not proxied.
