Awesome Personal Blogs

You’ve probably come across Awesome lists already. This one is quite similar to Personalsit.es, which I linked to recently. It’s nice to have such a long list full of personal blogs to explore. Exploring other’s personal blogs always offers the possibility to learn and discover new things and get to know new people who share interesting stuff.

I also have a blogroll, to which I regularly add new links which I find worth featuring. If you have a personal blog too, feel free to send me a link to it via a webmention (I will soon add a form to this blog for easier submission) or the contact form.

Just as I type this, the PR I created to add my blog got merged. 😄

Mass Delete Tweets (free & no 3rd-party apps)

In this post I want to explain how you can mass-delete old tweets without the need to use a 3rd-party service that probably also want your money or scripts that require you to create an application on the Twitter developer portal. You will just make use of Firefox, Tweetdeck, some shell scripts and two command line tools. To follow this tutorial you need the following prerequisites: An account at Twitter with tweets you want to delete (otherwise this tutorial is totally useless for you) Firefox Basic knowledge of how to use a terminal curl, jq and bash installed on your system (I will use a standard Linux distribution with a zsh-shell, so if you are using Windows or Mac, or another shell, commands can slightly differ) Disclaimer I’m not responsible for any damage caused by you following this tutorial!

What is Fedora Silverblue?

On my new PC, I use Fedora Silverblue since the beginning. It’s different than your normal distro, but I actually learned to love it, especially for it’s atomic updates.

The fedora magazine gives the following reasons to use Silverblue:

Because it allows you to concentrate on your work and not on the operating system you’re running. It’s more robust as the updates of the system are atomic. The only thing you need to do is to restart into the new image. Also, if there’s anything wrong with the currently booted image, you can easily reboot/rollback to the previous working one, if available. If it isn’t, you can download and boot any other image that was generated in the past, using the ostree command.

I completely agree with that.
