I was reading this piece, The Beginners Guide to Emacs, which suggested making the Caps Lock Key into CTRL. I’ve been using emacs for years, and it never occurred to me to make this change. Lovely! Since it isn’t in the instructions, I’d thought I’d make a note here in case it comes up in the future. This version simply makes CapsLk into Ctrl.
$ sudo emacs /etc/default/keyboard
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

I haven’t tried this browser. I like the idea. But, I think being able to use a SOCKS5 proxy is important, and I don’t see that functionality on a casual scan. Still, I thought it might be worth looking into as a secondary browser.
Reminded of NetHack this morning after hearing of Facebook’s release of The NetHack Learning Environment.
“NetHack is one of the oldest and arguably most impactful videogames in history, as well as being one of the hardest roguelikes currently being played by humans. It is procedurally generated, rich in entities and dynamics, and overall an extremely challenging environment…”
I’ve only played this casually, but it’s very complex. It might be a fun project to learn a little bit about artificial intelligence. Or, you might simply wish to play the game yourself.
Worth a look. It’s free and runs on pretty much any computer you’d want to use. Almost everyone will want to get a version with graphic tiles.
