Problem: Given an item in the Internet Archive, e.g. The works of Ralph Waldo Emerson, you may be tempted to download the PDF for its exactness. Admirable! However, my e-reader is horribly slow for opening it and turning pages. I find slow page turning aggravating; it makes me lose my train of thought and strains my reading comprehension.
This extra work is well worth it for me.
Debian, Devuan + Security >
Problem: Keep an air gapped (airwalled) computer updated via a sneakernet.
This project focuses specifically on Devuan, though it ought to apply any Linux distribution based on Debian.
See also: APT, the package management tool/system for Debian.
A self-hosted peer-to-peer search engine.
Aborted because openjdk-8 is not available to me.
Research on music licensing, with a focus on legally streaming copyrighted music.
This is not about the equipment, the act of bring a DJ or any other practical thing. This is about the law, and particularly for someone in Canada.

Some people mistakenly call this "White noise". That's unnatural garbage, like static.
A rather obvious topic that I didn't find good resources for when I was first interested in my shakuhachi. It got shelved for a long time because of that.
This topic isn't about the other necessary things:
If you can't put the flute to your mouth and make a decent note quite quickly, you probably aren't ready for anything more than Mary Had a Little Lamb and maybe not even that, yet. This is fine; accept your limitations so you have some place to set goals from.
Just something I'll dump up here for future reference.
This is an unsolved problem.. I can can do things manually but not using an easier "A to B" feature.
Problem: Given a video, note a start and finish point and export that clip.
I'd make a proper HOWTO with screenshots, but this does not work as-expected. I can get it roughly to work, but not smoothly enough for it to justify a proper tutorial.
