Still no.

The one thing The Bat! does not have is Lightning. Everything else is there.  :)

How many Thunderbird forks do we need?

Maxim was not a major developer. AFAIR, he was a mediocre developer - but the CEO.

Ah. I’d still have to port my FOAAS extension.

Thunderbird doesn’t have add-ons anymore? Ew.

(Here I am, still using Pandora ... while keeping an eye on Pegasus.)

How can I specify specific folders or files and mirror them automatically in the cloud?

Use hard links.

The TextEditors wiki - where I had contributed in the past - suffers from a lack of maintenance of existing pages. There are a lot of 404 links over there and my day only has 24 hours. Maybe someone of you feels able to fix those? :)

Living Room / [2018] Wanted: Console Text Editor for Windows

A pretty good article that made me rediscover the GRIEF editor:

(Now I usually use Emacs and/or Acme, but a good Windows CLI editor is still good to have.)

I think I'll just stop caring for DC mugs. My next NANY entries will save you some money: Not ordering any for me will make no difference and I still get my stuff released.  :D

Pfff. Why do I even attach binaries?
I'll clarify above.

Probably not, unless you want to hack the source code. Like Pascal/Delphi, Go usually produces static binaries.
edit: Just imagine that you had not edited your post.

sfd -url -target .

--> You'll have a single .htm file that includes all CSS, JS and image resources baked right into the source code. Enjoy or whatever.

Binaries: Attached.

New customers (or those getting the upgrade in a few days) will get Paint Shop Pro for free. I asked the SoftMaker guys whether I could get WordPerfect Office from the same vendor instead. They didn’t answer ...

Office 365 has a shitty user interface, which drove me away from MS Office in 2007 in the first place.

Ah, while we're at it: WordPerfect Office 2020 is released!

The prices are still interesting, but the new Microsoft Office filters seem to work just fine. Sadly, the also-new .odt import/export is a bit quirky yet. I hope they can fix it.

Available for Windows, macOS and inferior "systems", SoftMaker has already released their first Office 2021 beta version into the wild. I'm currently trying it on macOS and it seems to work just fine. Currently, a paid license enables me to install it on "up to five computers", so my two Windowses and my one MacBook would be covered. The only thing that prevents me from instantly buying it is that SoftMaker has already started to introduce features which are only available in the subscription version "Office NX" and I hate subscriptions...

Mine isn’t here yet.

"Only" 20 days left, but if you still don't have WordPerfect Office, the best* available office suite, this is your chance:

* Unless you require XLSX/DOCX format support which is currently not that great in WordPerfect/Quattro Pro. I assume that WordPerfect Office 20, probably coming in May or June, will fix that.

Personally, I dislike the zsh (it does too many things), but I am currently spending some time with a Mac and they come with the zsh these days. Trying to make it relatively useful is annoying.

I wrote a plugin for oh-my-zsh that displays the status of SCCS "repositories". GitHub, this time (because it's a pull request):


If the oh-my-zsh folks won't merge it before December 2020, I'll make this a NANY entry as well and host it somewhere else.  :D

I admit that my tool is not made for automatization. If you need to process ("pipe") hex strings automatically, a Perl script might be a better choice...
