Friend to friend: When you make a release please take a few minutes to make a human-readable changelog of what has changed since the last release?

Your commit-messages are not a changelog.

Let me re-iterate:

Your commit-messages are _not_ a changelog.

A changelog allows me to follow what you were thinking between releases.

A commit log shows me your keystrokes between releases.

I need to know what you were thinking.

Thank you.

If you're using bash or zsh and you don't know the ^X^E shortcut, learn it now.

First, ensure you have a valid `EDITOR` environment variable set to your favourite editor (like vim or emacs).

Second, enter some command, but don't hit enter.

Third, use Ctrl+X Ctrl+E and learn that you can use your editor to modify the command before running it in the shell.

This is pretty helpful if you're trying to edit a long command line.

#bash #zsh #linux #unix #macos #terminal

"Stallman: We need a law. Fuck them — there’s no reason we should let them exist if the price is knowing everything about us. Let them disappear. They’re not important — our human rights are important. No company is so important that its existence justifies setting up a police state. And a police state is what we’re heading toward."

Ich habe gerade festgestellt, dass VSCodes Python-Plugin neuerdings Syntax Highlighting für Requirements unterstützt. Sehr cool. 😍

It's really nice how is now displaying pop-ups with an excerpt of a linked article with an image.

I'm not sure how long ago they introduced this feature, but I've noticed it only recently and it's allows me to get basic info about related subjects without breaking my focus on main article. Good job!

Kann mir mal jemand erklären was dieser Honor-Society-Spam soll?
