I learned yesterday that in Tesla's newest car, if you haven't paid for autopilot, the option to turn it on is still there in the touchscreen - and if you accidentally do turn it on, Tesla immediately - and without warning or notification - charges $14,100 (the cost of the autopilot feature) to the credit card you have on file with them.
For example, there's a command called free that shows you info about your memory usage. Open up your #terminal and type the following:
By default watch command runs the given command every 2 seconds and shows you the output. In this case you can see the output of "free" changing every 2 seconds, depending on your memory usage. Press ctrl+c to quit watching.
As soon as I get rid of my old gpu I'll give Arco Linux a try. It gives you freedom of choice in every detail of your system from the very beginning. It also offers you the option to install every window manager... all of them.

How long will my pc last if I keep reducing its consumption of resources? I switched from graphical apps to terminal clients because I was using a very old 32 bits laptop. I have a more powerfull pc but I still use non graphical apps from my old times. Here are few of them:
Reddit: rtv (still works!)
Music player: miniplayer
If you're interested in any of those clients, they are available on github or/and your repos.
#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.
It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.
It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.
It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.
It's not how e-mail should work.
Consider dropping GMail.
Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....
When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.
@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.
I recently bought a book of Aaron Swartz's writings. I've just read the introduction and it really resonates (you can read it on google books).
If you don't know who Aaron Swartz was, you need to.
If you like documentaries watch The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz.
