I just got around to watching the Defunctland video from three days ago. What starts as a simple question about who wrote the Disney Channel mnemonic jingle turns into a moving piece about an uncredited artist and a work of art in its own right. HIGHLY recommended. youtube.com/watch?v=b_rjBWmc1i

A huge thanks to Corel for being willing to support buyers with legacy use-cases. I am now a registered owner of that copy of WinZip Self-Extractor 2.2 (non-Personal Edition) that I wanted as a kid and, once my Windows 9x retro projects are ready, I can complement the more FOSS-friendly InnoSetup installer with a retro-authentic "InstallShield Express 2 inside WinZip Self-Extractor 2.2" distributable. (I lucked into a sealed retail copy of ISExpress2.)

I just got really nerd-sniped and rewrote my command-line launcher generator for Flatpak in Python+PyGObject, solving pretty much every flaw it had along the way.

If you've been reluctant to use Flatpak-packaged apps because of the bad command-line user experience, give it a try. Aside from not being able to expose manpages that were just plain omitted from the packages, I'd call it perfect in all ways that matter.
