In #KDEApps1904, Okular gets support to show and verify digital signatures on PDFs. This feature is essential to use KDE's document viewer for business or if you need to exchange documents in any official capacity... like when negotiating international peace treaties.

I just discovered this sticker on my way home. This is an insult to science.

People saying such things should stop using their smartphones, computers and every other technology made possible by hard working scientists. I want to see them live without cars, electricity and modern medicine.

Ich bin wütend, weil die E-Mail-Ausdrucker heute unser Internet kaputt gemacht haben. :-(

it occurs to me that what in IT we call "security" in most other engineering disciplines would be called "basic safety engineering", or even, "material science"

I just experienced a Thunderbird bug, which is older than my first Linux installation:
If you wonder, my first steps with Linux were with SuSE Linux 8.1, which had KDE 3.0.3 and a Linux kernel 2.4.19.

I should learn to run `apt full-upgrade` in screen or tmux, also when upgrading a local machine :-/

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.
