gnome-tweak-tool gets a fantastic new Font Selector window

Here is the quick look at how the Font Selector looks like now. And its not just for the gnome-tweak-tool, its for all the places for font selection. I really loved it. So intuitive to use and amazingly good to look. This is what a good design and thinking can do. Kudos to Gnome team for coming up with this.

Typing the current date automaticly in any application with a key binding.

$ xvkbd -xsendevent -text $(date +%Y%m%d) I don\’t want to waste time to all the time type the current date. I have set this snippet in my kde shortcuts with meta+l. All the window managers have key-bindings AFAIK. That works in all softs, CLI or GUI
