Easy white bread recipe | BBC Good Food

https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/easy-white-bread

Delicious. Though I was a little o_O when it described the concept of preparing the bread one day before and leaving it in the fridge overnight to be a "great timesaver". No time has been saved. In absolute terms some time has been wasted. Reality is a construct. Your perception defines your world.

wwmm/easyeffects: Limiter, compressor, convolver, equalizer and auto volume and many other plugins for PipeWire applications

https://github.com/wwmm/easyeffects

Apply various effects on-the-fly to Linux audio using Pipewire.

This was great. Someone on a meeting had random high-pitched noises and I could, on the fly, add an equaliser to attenuate all frequencies about 11 KHz -- minimal impact on voices and noise disappeared!
