The hardest part of software development *by far* is getting someone else's software to do what you want it to do, which often isn't included in (or even conflicts with) what they want it to do.

This one’s going around again, but it’s still great. What does the “post” open source movement look like?

.@Raspberry_Pi launches the Compute Module 4 and Compute Module 4 Lite! Packing the same BCM2711 SoC as the full-size Pi 4, and now offering high-speed PCIe Gen. 2.0 connectivity, are these SOMs the new must-have gadgets? Let's take a look!

I'm always grateful when tech folks blog about their knowledge so I can search for it on the interwebs and learn new skills quickly and easily.

On ArchLinux, you can simply install 'duf' from the AUR.
