Thunderbird Sync (RTheren)
- Ryan Lee Sipes, Community and Business Development Manager for Mozilla Thunderbird, just put out a tweet about a major new feature coming to the Mozilla Thunderbird email client.
- Firefox Sync is working on Thunderbird, and it will be coming out officially very soon. And it is ahead of schedule.
- Email, calendar and contact accounts are syncing without issue in testing..
- This is freaking awesome, and would eliminate the headache of bringing in multiple email accounts into a new instance of Thunderbird!
- Not to mention all your contacts.
- This announcement comes at the heels of the awesome Thunderbird Mobile announcement 2 months ago, and the new features in the latest version of Thunderbird 102.
- Thank you RTheren in chat for posting this.
- I’ve been dragging around the same .thunderbirb folder for years.
- If you have a lot of email accounts, it’s a must.
- Unless you try a new version of thunderbird and decide to roll back only to find it incompatible.
- This is going to fix that, I hope.
- It should be available in a few months in the beta channel.
- I have installed themes before for GRUB in the past.
- But I didn’t know about:
- sudo apt-get install grub-customizer
- With grub-customizer you can easily install themes, change the background image, font, font color and size, and even the resolution of GRUB.
- Thank you Jacksaur for this awesome GRUB community themes list.
- This is a collection of GRUB themes from Pling that the Jacksaur liked.
- There are a couple of tips for installing themes and adding custom fonts.
- If you like a theme, please do consider giving it a rating on Pling or starring its repo on Github.
- YoRHa, CRT-Amber, and Billy’s Agent caught my eye.
- FFmpeg 5.1 has just been released, and is the first official Long-Term Support release.
- This is a major release that brings new features, new filters and other upgrades to one of the most powerful cross-platform, and open-source multimedia frameworks on the planet!
- VDPAU AV1 hardware acceleration support for RTX 30 series graphic cards.
- There are new video filters, including pixelize, colormap and multiply.
- Before anyone gets too excited the AV1 hardware support is for decode.
Davinci Resolve 18
- As is tradition I’ve updated the Resolve guide.
- This is to install Resolve on Debian 11 because, well, that’s what I run and Debian is the base for a lot of other Linuxes.
- No, you can’t double-click your way through it and it requires opening using the command line.
- I also cover what Resolve does and does not work with.
- Like Intel iGPUs and AMD APUs.
- Plus a quote from a Blackmagic employee saying something along the lines of “good luck” getting it working with AMD GPUs in general.
- This year includes bonus instructions for HiDPI screens.
- Most of you don’t have 43” laptops so you need to embiggen the UI.
- I have you covered, fam.
Slice of Pi
- “The cackling of geese saved Rome”
- This idea was spawned from a misapplication of self control.
- Him & his wife needed to protect their strategic supply of cookies… from themselves.
- The Defensive Duck was born.
- Raspberry Pi Pico, mini-speaker, LiPo battery and a motion sensor.
- 3d model link in the notes.
- This gives new meaning to the saying so you can get all your ducks in a row!
