        Most people don’t need fancy apps to jot down their ideas. If you’re one of them, consider installing tnote, a CLI-based note-taking app for Linux.

        You probably fire up a text editor every time you need to save an idea, a code snippet, or a URL. But you don’t always need to use a text editor to store tidbits.

        If you indulge with the Linux terminal a lot, you should look into integrating a terminal-based note-taking application into your workflow. Let’s learn how you can take notes in the Linux terminal.

      • Linux CapableHow to Install Foxit PDF Reader on Manjaro 21 Linux

        Foxit PDF Reader is a multilingual freemium tool that can create, view, edit, digitally sign, and print PDF files. Fuzhou, the China-based Foxit Software, develops Foxit Reader. Early versions of Foxit Reader were notable for startup performance and small file size. The current version supports more than 20 languages and allows users to annotate PDF documents with notes and create bookmarks from the Table of Contents. Users can also save customized Toolbars, add stamps and watermarks, attach files, highlight text fragments and use other tools to manipulate PDF documents.

        Some other notable additions to Foxit Reader are that it supports password-protected PDFs and digital signatures and offers enterprise users deployment capabilities through Active Directory or Group Policy. With these features, network administrators can centrally manage the installation of Foxit Reader on their organization’s computers.

        The following tutorial will teach you how to install Foxit on Manjaro 21 Linux. The tutorial will use the command line terminal with yay AUR helper. Ideally, most users may be using some wrapper for Pacman; for new users, it is essential to install one to keep your packages up-to-date while you learn Arch/Manjaro.

Several different packages allow the direct installation of the NetBeans IDE with suitable plug-ins for different applications. For example, the modules can be used to retrofit support for other programming languages, integrate them into existing version control systems, and expand the development environment as desired.

      • How to two-boot Linux and Windows 11 – How to boot the dual boot system – Game News 24

        The first step toward Linux is scary. We have lots of terminal applications, applications and environments to learn. Thankfully Linux has improved in recent years (from the earliest text-based installs used in the late 1990s to the earliest graphical versions (Debian and Slackware), to the early 2000s (Corel Linux, Mandrake). Since the ’90s, our graph installers improved as they tested Linux.

        The first steps to Linux are divided into two paths. One computer such as the Raspberry Pi is a board. Or more traditionally a dual boot setup, where Windows and Linux are usually on the same machine, most often on the same boot drive. By adding a custom boot menu, GRUB, you can use the two operating systems to switch between the two of us when we power our PC.

        We’ll learn how to double boot Linux with Windows, using Ubuntu and Windows 11. The steps are identical with Windows 10 or with Windows 10.

      • Linux CapableHow to Install Rust on Rocky Linux 9

        Rust is a systems programming language focused on speed, memory safety, and parallelism.

The Mozilla Foundation supports the Rust team, which ensures that the language remains free and open source. Rust is used in various software applications, such as game engines, operating systems, file systems, browser components, and simulation engines for virtual reality. Thanks to its focus on safety and performance, Rust has quickly become a popular choice among developers for many projects.

        For some history of Rust programming language’s background, it was initially designed by Graydon Hoare at Mozilla Research. The language was launched in 2010, and its stability and GPU support makes it a popular choice for developers looking to create high-performance applications. Rust is used in various applications, such as game engines, operating systems, file systems, browser components, and simulation engines for virtual reality. In 2016, Rust was voted the “most loved programming language” in the Stack Overflow Developer Survey.

    • Finance

      • VoxThe Fed raised interest rates again. What does that mean for the economy and inflation? – Vox

        The Federal Reserve raised interest rates again on Wednesday. Here’s what that could mean.

        The Federal Reserve raised interest rates by three-quarters of a percentage point on Wednesday in an attempt to bring the highest inflation in 40 years under control.

        It was the fifth time the Fed has lifted rates since March, and another unusually large increase for the central bank. Inflation has recently started to slow: In August, prices rose 8.3 percent compared to a year ago, down slightly from July’s 8.5 percent, according to a Consumer Price Index report released last week. Still, higher prices have made it harder for Americans to afford basic essentials like food and housing.

        When the Fed raises interest rates, the central bank is ultimately hoping to stabilize rapidly rising prices. The effect of this can ripple throughout the economy. Raising interest rates essentially makes borrowing money more expensive. By doing so, the Fed is effectively trying to slow the economy and consumer demand for goods and services. The hope is that eventually, prices will stop growing so quickly if demand falls.

        I love the hat, and I enjoy wearing it when I’m outdoors, but the snow-white fabric stains very easily. That doesn’t always sit well with me. I’m the type of person who likes when the things I own are either pristine or well-worn, but I have a hard time getting from one point to the other.

        It had been a while since I delved back into that world, and when I was introduced to Nuke’s Top 5 through another unrelated Youtube channel, I was instantly hooked.

        There is a massive back catalogue and every video is like 30+ minutes. It’s incredibly edited and the ‘evidence’ is always top-notch. I also really like how he showcases videos from people and channels from across the world and give full credit to every source he can.
