5 Meta Hacks of the Week: 12/15

5 Meta Hacks of the Week

We had a pretty good variety of Meta Hacks last week, from jokes to a terminal multiplexer. If you’re not signed up to receive my 5 Meta Hacks, go ahead and do it now so you don’t miss out! And if you want to contribute your own Meta Hack, submit your idea here. I’ll pick out my favorites and include them in the next 5 Meta Hacks of the Week.

If you’re new to 5 Meta Hacks of the Week, I basically send out exclusive hacks, interesting news, inspiring quotes, and just about anything I find that I want to share with the community.

Here are some of last week’s:

1. tmux
If you spend a lot of time on the command line, tmux is your friend, but you’ve got to master the basics. Here is a quick intro.

2. JustWatch
Curious if the movie you want to watch is available on one of your subscription streaming services? Search Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, HBO, and more, all in one place. (Contributed by Will T.)

3. Question: What do you call a pope making a speech on the Internet?
Answer: A popecast.

4. Google Public DNS
Google public DNS is free and very fast. If you spend a lot of time browsing, you will notice a big difference in response time.

5. Unsupervised Image to Image Translation 
Nvidia uses AI to help train self-driving cars to drive in the snow by creating artificial snowy streets. Pretty cool.
