Convert webfonts into Linux system fonts
Saw a nice webfont? You can download the woff2 files by finding them in the DevTools Network tab.
To convert them to ttf, you need woff2 tools
sudo apt install woff2 woff2_decompress fontfile.woff2
If the newly created font has issues being installed, you may use FontForge to try fix it. Sometimes it's just the name, which can be adjusted there easily.
Installing FlatHub on Ubuntu
Ubuntu uses Snap, while the world is using Flatpack.
Solved PHP module compile error with apprentice.lo
Error: Warning: end of file in string apprentice.lo
Increase memory of your VM to 4GB and it'll run through.
Found a pretty good cheat sheet for everyday regex.
Create a bootable Linux USB Stick using Windows
For me, the "Universal USB Installer" is the most uncomplicated way to do this.
The latest version will use Ventoy, which is awesome because with a large enough USB stick you can then simply copy ISO files into the directories of the stick.

Half a million old vinyls
Archive.org provides a huge archive of digitalized old vinyls.
There are hacks and data leaks happening here and there and on one or another website, maybe your email and password was extracted. Now, hope you didn't use this elsewhere, or did you?
It's a good idea to check if you were in any of such leaks using
- have a different password everywhere that's reasonably hard to guess.
- change passwords every once in a while
- activate 2-factor authentication
- use a password manager to keep track
Cyberpunk team culture change fixed the game
The interesting story from a hirrible release and a success story afterwards by … giving responsibility to the team to make good decisions.
The Senior Developer is also still learning
The difference might be, that he knows that this is the case.
Finally the first ethically responsible AI
I have the feeling it will not kill ChatGPT.
The Coding Train
Stumbled upon this channel, where the trainer walks you through the development of the solution to a a certain problem with a fun attitude. Mistakes will be made and that's fine, that's what coding is about, so we learn. Some call him the "Bob Ross of Coding"
