BASH (Bourne Again SHell) is the default shell in practically all Linux-based operating systems. All the commands we write in the terminal are interpreted by the shell, and become part of its history. In this tutorial, we see where the shell history is saved, and how to manage it using the “history” built-in command and some environment variables.
The tutorial covers where and how the history is saved, how to modify history behaviour via environmental variables, etc. So it is not the normal “how to use history” guides, but it is worth just mentioning, if you want to repeat a command by its number, you can quickly use !13 for the line numbered 13.

As all the environment correspondents are sick with COVID, reporter Jonathan Pie gets sent to the UN Climate Conference in Glasgow (aka COP26) despite knowing very little about the climate crisis. But he reckons he can wing it.
Two embarrassing interviews with Ed Miliband and Caroline Lucas later, he bumps into an inebriated George Monbiot drowning his sorrows at The World's End pub. Six pints later, Pie now fully understands the urgency of the existential crisis facing humanity, and, to the horror of his long-suffering Producer Tim, he decides to convey his new-found knowledge live to the nation.

Most work has been spend to the internal code of Friendica, so there may be problems lurking underneath the surface. We have deprecated a number of unsupported addons, added Arabic translation and a new WebDAV storage backend. For a full list of changes, please have a look into the CHANGELOG for this release.
Thanks for testing the new release! If you find any problems, please report them either at the issue tracker on github or in the support forum.
Should the upgrade process of the database get stuck
If you encounter this, please initiate the DB update manually from the command line by running the script
./bin/console dbstructure update
from the base of your Friendica installation. If the output contains any error message, please let us know using the channels mentioned above.

At best they are wish fulfillment, at worst they are deceptive by masking a serious global problem.
According to this map 👇 , I'm living in a tropical rainforest. In reality, it's a concrete jungle. The nearest small patch of land that resembles a remanence of a rainforest is about 200 km away.
All that's left on this earth are disconnected tiny fragments of real forest. Most of the space has been turned into some form of partially cultivated anthropogenic wasteland.

Since upgrading to Firefox 94.0, I've experienced a range of issue with Friendica. Everything works fine with other browsers, but with Firefox I cannot Quote share, delete local posts, and attach pictures to posts.
I reviewed my settings and disabled addons, but nothing seems to make a difference.
Is anyone else experiencing this or could give me an idea what to look out for?
Today I learned a new German word: "Datensparsamkeit". It means something like data prudence. (Thanks Hoergen!)
The size of my node's database has steadily increased over the last four weeks, with a further sharp rise over the last few days.
The overall increase is about 40 per cent [40%!!] over four weeks. See the two graphs here: 👇
There haven't been any major changes to the usage of my system. Friendica configurations as shown below haven't been altered either (although I increased the mysql IB logfile setting). I updated to the 2021.09 release about about four weeks ago.
What's going on? How to interpret this increase in the DB's size?

Here are the results from the survey that was posted awhile ago in this Forum.
The survey collected information from approximately five per cent of all known Friendica nodes.
More than half of the participating nodes had less than ten active users, while the remaining nodes had either a mid or high-range number of active users.
It was found that:
- Almost all nodes either use Apache or Nginx web servers,
- Most nodes use PHP via FastCGI,
- All nodes use PHP version 7, mainly 7.4,
- Most nodes do not rely on a reverse proxy,
- Most nodes are hosted in a data centre,
- Nodes hosted at home have less than 10 users.
Overall no correlations were established between types of web servers, PHP setup, hosting, and the number of active users, except for home server hosting and a low number of users.

The raw data (sanitised and furthers anonymised) is available here: https://cloud.hubup.pro/s/R9z3ks8C68orsiP
Many thanks to all admins who participated in this survey!
I'm glad the Fediverse doesn't work like this.
