    I found this really nice plugin, but when activated the pagination on the main page disappears. I am looking at fixing the issue before implementing the plugin.

    DownloadHelper coApp 1.6.3 not installable on Ubuntu 22.04

    Use the following command to check permissions:
    flatpak permissions webextensions

    If the permission for net.downloadhelper.coapp is set to “no”, you can correct this by issuing the command I mentioned:
    flatpak permission-set webextensions net.downloadhelper.coapp snap.firefox yes

    I applied for a position and got an interview. I hope I get an offer for the position! 🤞 Sounded like a very challenging position. But before I get exited, they stated that they have more candidates to interview. The last position I had an interview, they stated the same, I received an email stating they hired a more “experienced” candidate and who they thought would be a better fit for their team. 😢 But at least I got the experience of the interview and what I needed to work on for my skills. There were several questions that I could not answer with confidence. I do not fluff my answers. I am not the “fake it until you make it” type of person. I would rather get hired based on my honesty, than be hired based on falsehood. What you see is want you get. 😉 If I do not get hired, then I believe the decision is best for them and myself.

    I once worked at a medical facility and the supervisor had a picture with a quote on the wall, “For everything there is a time and a season.” I believe in that there is a reason for everything. ☺️

    As Steve Jobs said, “You cannot connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards.” There has been multiple times that I have looked back and was glad that things that I hope to have turned out did not, and I would have been in a place of hurt if things did turned out the way I hoped for them to turn out.

    I will update this post when I hear the results. 😉

    I had a second interview. Seems to have gone well. I will know the results by Friday. 😬 🤞

    I was offered the position and I accept!
