Today's very quick post is a recommendation to a french YouTube channel. It's called Chat Sceptique and features a statistician popularizing many different topics related to statistics.

The same person was behind another channel which is not active anymore due to conflicts between the team members: La statistique expliquée à mon chat.

If you understand french, I highly recommend taking a look at both channels and subscribing if you like it!

Since I consider my messages on social media to be valid at the moment they're posted, I like to have them deleted after some time. When I still used Twitter, I also used a CLI tool called cleantweets that helped with this.

A few months ago, after having created an account on Fosstodon, I wrote a simple command line utility to help you achieve the same thing but with toots: cleantoots (notice how much effort I put into naming it).

In my introductory article, I teased about using SSH with a YubiKey. Here's the post that expands on the idea.
