comment Handbrake --stop-at parameter not working as intended
Confusing that you're supposed to put "duration" where it says "unit"! How is "duration" a unit? I wrote "s" and it didn't work.

comment How do I compare binary files in Linux?
I prefer VBinDiff. DHEX is using CPU even when idling, I think it's redrawing all the time or something. VBinDiff doesn't work with wide terminals though. But the addresses become weird with wide terminals anyway, since you have more than 16 bytes per row.

comment Firefox: Add a custom Google search including pre-defined keywords
