Update on how to identify the url from a radio stream

This is an update on how to identify an URL stream using wireshark. In a previous article I explained how to install wireshark:

For some reason, radio stream providers are increasingly obfucasting the URL of the radio stream, probably because they want users to access their streams through their web page. So my old instructions do not work.

Small icons and application menus in displays with high DPI

xfig_small.pngMy new laptop XPS 13 9370 is great but I can ran it with such high display resolution (3840 x 2160 pixel 331 PPI) that I have to run it with a scale factor of 2.12. But not all applications scale appropriately. For Gimp I could solve it using a theme with larger icons, but some old X11 applications like Xfig, which I've been using since my Unix times in the late 1980s and could never substitute by anything else, don't scale at all. This is a problem since the menus and icons, as well as line thickness and such, are so small and thin that Xfig becomes unusable.
