#acxi 3.1.1 released, that features bug fixes, 1 for Opus, and 2 for escaping " and & in the path when encoding. Everything should be working fine now.
#acxi 3.1.0 quickly followed 3.0.0, and featured support for Opus output format. Since Opus comes from the same bunch that makes Ogg, the logic was pretty easy to implement, so I decided why not add another output format. Here's to many more years of syncing flac to ogg/opus/mp3 audio libraries!

#inxi 3.0.29 completed. A small point release, features fixed Trinity desktop detection, fixed cpu vulnerability unreadable errors (reported by fedora/vascom, thanks), adds #TDM and #CDM display managers, adds Q4OS distro ID and debian system base, more disk vendors/ids (thanks #linuxlite hardware database).
Polished up some loose ends on #acxi, which makes the new 3.0.0 version pretty much good to go. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, it may get packaged for debian/ubuntu, if the packager is in the mood. The new version is much cleaner, output is more consistent, man page reasonably complete, top comment instructions for user configs more complete, various glitches and fixes handled, so acxi 3 is pretty much ready for your #flac to #ogg / #mp3 conversion needs!
https://github.com/smxi/acxi - acxi is an audio conversion program, converts lossless (like flac) to lossy formats (like ogg or mp3), while preserving your music library hierarchies and tagging in the compressed versions.
#inxi 3.0.28 just released. This makes for probably the longest time between new inxi versions since Perl inxi started.
For sys admins, inxi can now be started by Ansible or Chef with the --tty flag to make sure it runs as shell. This fix was not confirmed by the issue poster, oh well.
Battery corner cases handled, where sys battery sans data.
#introductions It's been a long time since I used anything like twitter but I like the idea of a decentralized social network, so here I am! Toot, toot!
Mainly because they slightly changed their syntax internally, but then once I had looked at it, I decided to add a top/bottom x count of distros with a new -r option.
Everything seems to work, last 6 months, top 6:
dws -t 6 -r 6

Must be something about a minimal installer iso that is 12MiB in size, heh. And a 'full' iso that is 150MiB or so.
#windhand at the intimate Starline Social Club... amazing.
Just released #Inxi 3.0.27 which contains #OpenBSD memory and disk size fixes, Android ARM phone fixes, #TinyCore #tce fixes, better debuggers for complicated debugging situations, and some #osx bug fixes. Note that normally I don't do anything more than remove real errors for osx, but because one issue raised also was an existing old issue, I fixed that as well (space in remote file system name for partitions).
Also uploaded my first #tcz package for tce, will see if it is accepted.
#OpenBSD changed column order and syntax for fre and avm in vmstat, thus breaking the expected syntax. This is fixed in #pinxi, and will be out in #inxi 3.0.27. One could ask about the wisdom of changing things like this, but there are better ways to spend ones time so all I can do is create work arounds for this type of randomness and flux. But I think I will use this to create a FAQ about why inxi is so long, with vmstat output from OpenBSD 6.1 and 6.3, along with how many lines of code the fix required
