In the movie AntiTrust with Ryan Philippe, you have Tim Robbins as a kind of "Bill Gates" clone. In the movie, he is stealing developers' code with cameras to read over their shoulders. In 2021, in the real world, developers just go ahead and push their code right onto Bill Gates' GitHub.

As #GoogleIsEvil, G👀gle does evil things. This time they want every website, to OPT OUT of their spyware by setting a specific HTTP header.

So some people are (thinking of) sending patches to all the webserver software maintainers and urging every FUCKING SITE on the internet to apply that HTTP header.

Are you fucking INSANE?

How about creating a new HTTP status/error code:
"666: Fuck off G👀gle"

and return that to every user using #Google Chrome

Adapting the internet to G👀gle's whims 🤦

Not all bubbles are created equal. Mr. Bubbles is superior.

Watching a series on moonshiners. Authorities just bother them because they don't pay taxes. They try to talk about how much damage it does, as if taxed liquor doesn't do the same.

A few days ago I had an idea for a simple e-ink project and found Inkplate - an Open Hardware design with ESP32 and recycled Kindle displays.

Programmed it to wake up daily at midnight to download a PGM image over WiFi (gitlab.com/dos1/kartka) from a server which checks some stuff like trash collection schedule. Should last years on a single battery charge.

Check it out if you look for a super approachable way to build some e-ink stuff! inkplate.io/

I moved my personal email to mutt via POP3 a few months ago. I am now forced to use it solely on my computer. There are two big benefits. #1 I'm happier, as I'm not constantly bothered by it. Om Sundays, I don't see my personal email at all. #2. Responding to email on my computer (as it's meant to be) has helped me read ALL important emails, keep my inbox clean and organized, and answer all emails in a timely manner.

Zoomer Mountain, starring my phone and me. "I wish I could quit you..."

I finally got to setting up my old laptop as a plex server. 😁
I followed the instructions @tech put together.

I don't do test-driven development. It's really a buzzword that's so hot right now, like agile software development. I REALLY love when they try to combine the two buzzwords. Basically to say we want TDD, but don't want to pay for it. What always ends up happening with TDD is a half-assed attempt at some tests which are out-of-date and incomplete.
