If youโ€™ve migrated the default branch of your git repository from master to main, please delete the master branch and ensure that the main branch is set as the default in your git remote host (e.g., GitHub, etc.) so people donโ€™t accidentally base their contributions on the master branch.

If you do a git branch --move, you wonโ€™t have the above issue.

Hereโ€™s a good guide for all this, including updating your local settings so that git init uses main instead of master:

Google Analytics is the largest and one of the worst trackers. It's used even on sites that promote privacy, GNU/Linux, etc.

If you specifically want em-dashes in your copy, you've *got* to learn how to type them. I'm not proofreading when I copy and paste your text into my template, that's your job!

Oh my god. I'm an idiot. The BandCamp app for iOS can shuffle your whole collection. It just wasn't clear to me because I'm not used to the heart icon representing my collection ๐Ÿ˜–

Well that overloaded my flash drive, so I guess I gotta do it straight to hard drive and move it over instead...

Also note, if you use this downloader, you need the Java Developer's Kit (JDK) version instead of the regular Java Runtime Environment (JRE)!

Hmm, I found an answer on Reddit saying "no, it's not possible without downloading" from 3 years ago with a justification that I guess I can appreciate but still disagree with "It forces you to listen front to back old the album like the old days":

I tend to listen to albums this way anyway, but in my special case, I have nearly 250 albums dumped in my account now (my fault, I acknowledge) and I just want a sampling from each of them without completely eliminating my computer's disk space... oh well. Maybe I'll just use a giant flash drive or something.

This is *exactly* the reason got built for the BLM Itchio bundle last year, though!!

I made an impulse buy on and I find myself with around 250 albums of synthwave (for just $3!). Is there any good way to just... shuffle all my BandCamp music without having to download all of it?

Desktop or iOS apps are applicable for me.
