Very early film usually plays at a very high speed (I'm not sure why) and is silent...
Here, the uploader corrected the speed and added sound to 1890's footage from Paris, France.
Makes it much more real for me:

In the meantime, I found out about another option that I think I'll have to give a try: Woof.$ sudo apt install woof
$ woof ./somefile.txt

High-Performance Gaming, Accessible to Everyone
Forget about hardware: Shadow is a full Windows computer you can access through a simple app. Anything you can do on a high-end computer, you can do on Shadow.
You spend lots of time waiting on your computer. You pause while apps start and web pages load. Spinner icons are everywhere. Hardware gets faster, but software still feels slow. What gives?
What real alternative is there, though? If you want to do the whole social networking but don't want to give all of your info? A couple of my communities created FB groups, but... FB. A couple of others were mentioned... WeMo, Mastadon, Discord, Slack... but they all seem to be different animals. The only real thing for public communities that opposed it was pretty much G+.-wraith808 (October 08, 2018, 04:51 PM)
Welcome to diaspora*
The online social world where you are in control
diaspora* is based on three key philosophies:
Instead of everyone’s data being held on huge central servers owned by a large organization, diaspora* exists on independently run servers (“pods”) all over the world. You choose which pod to register with, and you can then connect seamlessly with the diaspora* community worldwide.
You can be whoever you want to be in diaspora*. Unlike some networks, you don’t have to use your real identity. You can interact with people in whatever way you choose. The only limit is your imagination. diaspora* is also Free Software, giving you liberty over how you use it.
In diaspora* you own your data. You don’t sign over rights to a corporation or other interest who could use it. In addition, you choose who sees what you share, using Aspects. With diaspora*, your friends, your habits, and your content is your business ... not ours!
A group of kids did a shot-for-shot remake of “Star Wars”
You haven’t seen “A New Hope” until you’ve seen it remade by kids in a garage...
Modifications to Wine are submitted upstream if they're compatible with the goals and requirements of the larger Wine project; as a result, Wine users have been benefiting from parts of this work for over a year now. The rest is available as part of our source code repository for Proton and its modules.
Most computer systems today (e.g. Windows, OSX, Android, iOS) use a thing called Unicode to represent text. Since computers work in binary, there needs to be a way to take a string of binary and convert it to letters and numbers to display on the screen. Unicode is one way to do that, and any system that uses Unicode knows that 01000001 is the capital letter A.
Since all of these emoji are part of the Unicode standard it means that emoji is essentially text, and it can be typed into anywhere normal text can be typed into, which means we can now put them in lots of funny places.
...Heh, after all that and I'm still using Brave as my main browser. Little things get fixed here and there, let's see what works now:
And I get the feeling that Edvard isn't too impressed with Brave, either:

...Those have been replaced by "Top Sites" tiles. Still not as useful as say, Opera or Vivaldi's bookmark tiles on the new tab page, but at least you can remove them now. The dialog when you remove is sort of clunky. You hit the 'X' on the tile, the tile goes away, then Brave tells you it has been deleted, but you can Undo, Remove All, or X to dismiss the notification. It's a little jarring because it's a departure from the standard "Are you sure you want to delete that" dialog, but eh...
- Can't edit the default page shortcuts. There are 'x's to delete them, but it doesn't do anything. You click it, and a dialog comes up that says "Thumbnail removed" but it's still there. Some discussion on the Brave forum about it, and it's apparently on the list as something that needs to be fixed.-Edvard (February 12, 2018, 12:55 PM)
- No 'History' item in the settings dialogs (that I could find, anyway). I have to enter "about:history" in the address bar.All these have been fixed as far as I can tell. At least I haven't had the "missing CSS" thing happen for awhile now.
- Embedded YouTube videos can't be full-screened. The video enlarges but the window stays the same size. Very curious.
- Sometimes (maybe once or twice a week) it "loses" CSS; I hit the 'back' button and suddenly I'm in 1994 with no font colors.
- Sometimes I can't input text anywhere; the address bar, forum posting, information form filling, nothing. I have to restart the browser.This still happens from time to time, but it may be my Desktop Environment (running Xfce on Debian 'Testing'), because I've noticed it happening with other windows every now and then, but not even half as many times as with Brave. I figured out all it takes is Minimizing and Restoring the window instead of restarting the browser. Maybe it's time to try out a new DE...
Well, after putting it all on one page, I think I'm done. Vivaldi is looking better lately...I still use Vivaldi occasionally, but it's still just as gawd-awful slow to start up as the first time I tried it. Just for giggles, I tried timing all the browsers I have installed. Firefox is the slowest to start at ~16 seconds from click to full window showing. Vivaldi is half that; 8 seconds. Chromium takes ~6 seconds, and Brave is ~2 seconds.
