I use dict.cc as a German ⇄ English dictionary for a few years now. I like how the website is laid out, it has DDG integration with `!dcc`, and I especially like how it has lots of idioms & colloqual words & multi-word terms

It's your duty to try to say what you want to say, *and* to try to not say what you don't want to say.

It's `/etc/apache2/conf-available/` (no s), but `/etc/apache2/sites-available/` (s) (& `mods-available`), and I get that confused every time.

I use a lot and use ^--check to rerun an ansible check-mode, but for real.

tip: use ^foo to say run the last command, but remove the string “foo”. ^foo^bar means “replace “foo” with “bar” in the last command.

@musicmatze @ebel @janriemer The real reason for this awkwardness is self-inflicted by Rust. FromIterator that provides collect is in core (doesn't need memory allocator), but Vec is in std/alloc, and interfaces in core can't refer to Vec in any way.
There's reverse of this problem with io::Read that has a method taking Vec, and can't be in core.

@zeh Creative Commons has some “non-commerical” licences (-NC), but I wish there was a “democratic only” version (-DO?). I'm more OK with some solo person making money from my thing, or the BBC making money with it, but not so OK with some shareholder owned medacorp...

Boost this if you want to be part of an explicitly anticapitalist technology liberation movement.

@musicmatze oh nice! Maybe I should copy/paste that into projects in future.

I wish that sort of thing was in rust stdlib as an ergonomic improvement

Unlike most other cli programmes, the order of the command line flags is relevant, which was an... interesting programme challenge to get `clap` to produce that.

`anglosaxon`: new cli tool to convert large XML files into custom text formats based on the command line flags you give it. No coding needed
New tool from me, and designed to handle the 40+GB XML files we use in
crates.io/crates/anglosaxon
github.com/amandasaurus/anglos

@zeh ah yes, “copyfarleft”! I forgot about that term.

I _really_ like that it's not commerical-vs-noncommerical, but instead democratic-vs-nondemocratic orgs. I'm fine with commerical stuff
