  • Thunderbird: It’s as if they want to lose users!

    Infuriating: Working on Linux Mint, I regularly update my system. The last update included a Thunderbird update (60 -> 68), and an important plug-in stopped to work, the incredibly useful Quick Folder Move. After spending an hour on this, I decided to downgrade – of course some plugins that were updated in the meantime stopped…

  • Updating Facebook Auto-Post (2018)

    I refuse to post original content at Facebook, or other networks. Instead, I have my websites automatically cross-post of original content from my website. But networks regularly update their APIs or require new checks. For my personal benefit, I’ll document my effort for allowing SNAP Auto-Poster (WordPress) to submit to Facebook. First, this is the…

  • Please vote for my EclipseCon France submission!

    I just submitted a talk to EclipseCon France – it would be great if you could up-vote it (registration required), or forward it to other Eclipse-loving people. Thanks!
