TermiT/Flycut: Clean and simple clipboard manager for developers
See also:
Forked from:

It's just OK, but there's still no way to reliably ignore clipboard input from specific programs (like clipboard managers). Maccy pretty much gets the job done.

This one is interesting because of the JavaScript transforms (which I didn't explore), and it does let you remove items from the history, but beyond that it's not great.

Maccy - clipboard manager for macOS
See also:

I picked this one, because it respects when KeePassX clears the clipboard.

Initial setup:
<code class="language-bash">defaults write org.p0deje.Maccy hotKey control+command+c
# optionally
# defaults write org.p0deje.Maccy pasteByDefault true # default is false</code>

Giving this app permission to control accessibility features is only necessary if you want it to paste by default (default: false).

Lake Wobegon - Wikipedia
The Lake Wobegon effect, a natural human tendency to overestimate one's capabilities, was named by David Myers in honor of the town.[12] The characterization that "all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average" has been used to describe a real and pervasive human tendency to overestimate one's achievements and capabilities in relation to others.

python - How does the dependency resolution works with pip when a package specify a range and another doesn't? - Stack Overflow
I think I just understood "global dependency" resolution. IPython and ptpython require prompt_toolkit >= 2.something, but 'mycli' depends on something like 0.16. So installing 'mycli' with pip will always break IPython, and vice-versa.

windows - Run Python scripts in PowerShell directly - Super User
Edit the PATHEXT environment variable and add the .py extension.

Just add this line to your powershell profile:
<code class="language-powershell">$env:PATHEXT += ";.py"</code>

or you could just edit PATHEXT globally using the system settings (just start menu search for "Edit Environment variables for your account").

See; the MS TechNet article linked in the approved answer is looooong dead.

windows - How do I use a pipe to redirect the output of one command to the input of another? - Stack Overflow
So it looks like you can't pipe the output of batch files into other programs with CMD.EXE, which I just... never noticed.

Workaround is to use PowerShell to run the whole pipeline, since it has proper pipes
You can also run exactly same command at Cmd.exe command-line using PowerShell. I'd go with this approach for simplicity...
<code class="language-powershell">PowerShell -Command "temperature | prismcom.exe usb"</code>

Please read up on Understanding the Windows PowerShell Pipeline

You can also type in C:\>PowerShell at the command-line and it'll put you in PS C:\> mode instanctly, where you can directly start writing PS.

Access clipboard in Windows batch file - Stack Overflow
<code class="language-powershell">get-clipboard</code>

(works on Windows 10 at least)

The alternatives are ghastly:
Slimming it down (on a new enough version of Windows):
<code class="language-powershell">set _getclip=powershell "Add-Type -Assembly PresentationCore;[Windows.Clipboard]::GetText()"
for /f "eol=; tokens=*" %I in ('%_getclip%') do set CLIPBOARD_TEXT=%I</code>

- First line declares a powershell commandlet.
- Second line runs and captures the console output of this commandlet into the CLIPBOARD_TEXT enviroment variable (cmd.exe's closest way to do bash style backtick ` capture)

(and that was one of the _concise_ solutions)

Letters of Note: It is the woman who pays
Nov. 30 '90

Dearest Marianne Brown --

It can't be said often enough, "It is the woman who pays." The miracle is that so many can and do somehow. I was in love (still am) with a widow with four kids (two not her own). She somehow raised them all on a teeny weeny salary. I told her one time, "I worry about women." She said, "Don't."

Cheers --

BashFAQ/024 (Why can't I pipe data to read?) - Greg's Wiki
So when you try to pipe into 'readarray', the variable you're trying to 'readarray' *into* is created in the context of the subshell, and then deleted when the subshell terminates.
The reason for this potentially surprising behaviour, as described above, is that each SubShell introduces a new variable context and environment. The while loop above is executed in a new subshell with its own copy of the variable linecount created with the initial value of '0' taken from the parent shell. This copy then is used for counting. When the while loop is finished, the subshell copy is discarded, and the original variable linecount of the parent (whose value hasn't changed) is used in the echo command.

How to list all tags of a docker image
This is one way to do this, and it works. See also this Gist, which 'docker pulls' a bunch of Bash images to see if that version of Bash has a certain 'shopt' option:
<code class="language-bash">
for (( i=0; $?==0; i++ )); do
curl -sL$image/tags/?page=$i 2>/dev/null \
| jq -r '.results[]["name"]'
You can also get the total number of tags from the "count" attribute of the first JSON response, which also gives you the "next" URL.

Possibly see also:, but I don't know what the difference between Docker Hub, Docker Registry, and a Docker "Trusted" Registry is, or which one exactly the public Docker Hub is.

We’re Re-animating Beer from Century-Old Yeast | Urban Artifact
Full video:
Kollman Baker got wind of the rumored fermenting tank from our friend Michael Morgan, an author and entrepreneur who helped blaze Cincinnati’s Brewing Heritage Trail. “They found cellars on Race Street and apparently there’s this big wooden vat,” Kollmann Baker recalls Morgan telling him. Kollman Baker was skeptical. But Morgan, Cincinnati’s pre-eminent beer historian, had ascertained that a tenement building in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati—an epicenter of 19thcentury beer-making, just north of downtown—stood atop stone-vaulted lagering cellars used by some of the city’s most prominent beer barons.

Approximately 60 yeast scrapings were gathered from inside and outside the vat, its spigot, and even the cellar’s walls, and captured in jars of wort (a malt infusion; a sort of pre-beer beer). We fermented them for six months and then cracked them open. Well, most of them. Some appeared too scary to unleash. “A few of them had turned black,” recalls Morgan, who cautiously sampled drops with the Urban Artifact brewers. “There was a mild freakout from one of the testers who jumped up to wash his hands.”
