As for the missing dependency, consider filing a bug.

Opinion | Meet the Man Behind Trump’s Biden Tweet - The New York Times
“The 30 second spots on TV aren’t the way to market anymore. The stuff online that people dismiss as memes — that’s the way to motivate people,” he added. “It’s the viral political marketing of the future.”

In theory, his story is a perfect realization of the utopian understanding of the utopian promise of the internet: a truly democratic system of communication where anyone, anywhere can create things and get them seen by important people — even the president!

But in keeping with our current political moment, that utopian vision is used for vapid, divisive ends. The reality, as we should all know by now, is darker and a whole lot dumber.

windows - Getting WGET to display a less verbose output - Super User
You can use -nv to make wget less verbose, but it won't show download progress in that case.

--show-progress will override the "quiet" flag.

Right-click opens up terrifying vistas of reality and Windows 95 user's frightful position therein • The Register
He was therefore in a confident mood when a user waved at him, needing help.

The gentleman in question, recalled Anthony, "seemed to be doing OK, but he said he had a question…"

"See that Recycle Bin there, on the screen?" the user asked.

"Does someone come round and empty that?"

Anthony stared at him for a few seconds before carefully demonstrating the arcane art of the right-click.

He then slowly backed away, doubtless making a mental note to have a quiet word with whoever had dispensed the training.

PuTTY semi-bug false-positive-malware
Our build setup does not involve Windows! As of 0.70, PuTTY's build process for Windows executables and installers goes from source code to digitally signed build produts entirely on Linux, without involving Windows or even WINE at any point. (We use clang-cl as a compiler, and run the WiX installer-constructor using Mono plus some home-grown glue code). So malware that runs on Windows would have a very difficult time attacking our build machine.

Here's how you change into a folder if the folder can also contain subfolders: press <space>.
You can change folders using the change-folder command, but you'll need to hit <space> to view the files instead of just changing folders.

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).
