Huge thanks to Plata for the nifty set of Python scripts that speed up collecting links from feeds by a lot.

Something missing? Want to contribute?

If your project's cool story (or your awesome video or nifty blog post or ...) is missing and you don't want that to happen again, please just put it into the hedgedoc pad for the next one! Since I am collecting many things there, this get's you early access if you will ;-) If you just stumble on a thing, please put it in there too - all help is appreciated!


This may well be the last Weekly Update published for 2023. The next one is tentatively scheduled for December 30th, 2023 - but I am not sure if I will be able to deliver it after having gone/partied/survived through 37C3.
