What do people use to track time on Linux? I've found Chrono (https://github.com/gochrono/chrono), which seems good, but is there something with a nice GUI, that'd keep the timer going in the Gnome tool bar for example?
It seems like Tilix is the one to go with. Thanks everyone!
This list of awesome things is all kinds of amazing: https://github.com/sindresorhus/awesome
And after that I'm going to try to tackle the Design Patterns book by Gamma, Helm, Johnson, Vissides (the "Gang of 4"). Looks very dry and the code is all Java, but it's about time I got my OO design patterns figured out.

@gueorgui It's hard not to be inspired by the society they are building. An inspiration not only for the middle east future, but also for our "modern" societies.

It’s hard not to feel sympathy for the people of #Kurdistan and a bitter disgust at US foreign policy these days. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/oct/13/the-kurds-a-bitter-history-of-betrayal
TIL that unicode emoji support was actually removed from Emacs on mac OS *on purpose* because... Linux doesn't support it as well?? http://ergoemacs.org/misc/emacs_macos_emoji.html

I've put Qubes OS on my X230 as an experiment. The thing is *slow* (of course — it's basically a bunch of VMs), but the compartmentalisation really made me think about how I use my computers and how all my data is, so to speak, in the same basket. I don't think I need this level of security so I'll reinstall some mainstream Linux flavour at some point, but I'm enjoying the exploring and tinkering.
And in the meantime one of the world's most powerful countries, the UK, can't get it shit together about fucking Brexit, so much that climate change is not mentioned in the news at all 🤦♂️
Very impressed by Greta Thunberg's speech at the UN: http://webtv.un.org/live/watch/greta-thunberg-young-climate-activist-at-the-opening-of-the-climate-action-summit-2019/6088742229001/
