- All GUI archive managers in Linux suck1. Command line is much better, but when using GUI file manager I want to have basic actions (create/extract/mount archive & install package) available in right click menu.
- You don't need GUI tool to browse archives. Much better solution is to mount it, so you can browse archive in file manager of your choice and open in associated applications without extraction.
- While archive is extracted I want see terminal that shows progress. After extraction terminal is closed. If there's error during extraction I want to terminal left open to see error message (
extract-command || true)

- email → Twilio.com in Zapier.com (if you even more fortunate to live in other place). Twilio.com will allow you to call yourself for free. Zapier.com will allow to make 100 email → call transactions in month. Should be enough (its more "routine" than "important" if theres more than 100)
Don't forget to put loud and distinctive ringtone to notification number, and allow it to pass "Do Not Disturb" mode.

my name is Dmitry, I'm software developer and this is my blog. My passions are minimalism and continuous improvement1.
