So not far from where I live they've had a street torn up to replace a significant portion of the road with not one but two roundabouts to "improve traffic flow". This construction has been going on for a while because the road can't easily be closed down. They've just opened up half of each of the roundabouts and have had a few accidents already.

Been shopping for a phone, and it amazes me just how gigantic they are. Why in the fuck would I want a 6.5 inch screen on a device that is supposed to fit in my pocket?

The ultimate cheat sheet?

"Intelligent Tracking Prevention 2.2 | WebKit"

Looks like those UTM tracking URLs won't be so effective anymore. Good work from the WebKit team!

anyway a grateful thanks to the unsung heroes who maintain youtube-dl in the face of the worst user base on earth, for giving me the ability to listen to chillwave mixes and random sabaton tracks in the background without devoting half my processor to yt ads

The most plausible solution is better technology education,

No, I don't think we shouldn't teach programming to everyone. We should teach people how computers actually work.


So stupid for people to be requesting text formatting in toots. Anything outside of a stripped down markdown would be insane. Best to allow nothing.

I decided to check Birdsite to see up to date information about the burning of Notre Dame and was instantly reminded of why I left it where Twitter showed me on the first tweet of someone I don鈥檛 follow gatekeeping grief over the destruction of the cathedral versus other tragedies happening elsewhere. I just instantly logged off.

Software engineers are indoctrinated to believe: "People only hate ads when they aren't relevant." This doctrine has led to over 20 years of mass data collection. It's a lie, and if more engineers dared to question it, we'd get a lot further on #privacy.

"Code caching for JavaScript developers" by Leszek Swirski

I'm glad Chrome finally wrote something public about their bytecode cache. This is one of the biggest inside-baseball perf optimizations that browsers do, but web developers aren't very aware of.

And yes, Firefox is still fighting a huge uphill battle against Chrome interop, and I have no idea how they're even able to keep their heads above water. They need all the help they can get, because they're battling stupid bugs like this every single day.

WebKit (Safari) is no less amazing for the comeback they've pulled off in the past few years, although they have fewer interop pressures. Web devs make sure their sites work in Safari, because the CEO has an iPhone.

Don't apply for grants that have an application fee. I 100% guarantee they feast on the blood of the poor and then give the grant to one of their own. #ArtTips

I just spent 30 minutes trying to figure out how to get TypeScript to understand what the fuck HTMLElement was and then was like 鈥淲hy am I -WANTING- to add header files to JavaScript?鈥

For a bit over a year I have had broken voicemail on my phone because AT&T鈥檚 system freaked out when I got my sister鈥檚 phone as a hand-me-down. I鈥檝e tried calling and getting it fixed, have gone by a store, and have even emailed them to no avail. Suddenly today I have working voicemail.

My ISP has some technical difficulties with ipv6 this morning. I'm assigned an ipv6 address but nothing works through it, and while my "Mac" just happily automatically switched over to using ipv4 when browsing my server (Ubuntu 18.04) would not. I ended up having to disable ipv6 in sysctl just to get things working. Anyone know how to get Ubuntu to just switch over to ipv4 when ipv6 is having trouble?
