Was ich auch bewundernswert finde, dass folgendes seid (literally!) Jahrzehnten nicht behoben bekommt:

- Bearbeite eine in verlinkte Grafik in oder .

- Indesign: „Ogott, irgendwas ist mit der Grafik passiert! Hilfe! Was tun!?“

- Drück auf den Update-Link-Knopf.

- Indesign: „Ach so, alles wieder gut. Puh. Was war da nur los.“

Man würde meinen, für den Haufen Geld den der Müll kostet sollte es möglich sein Links automatisch zu aktualiseren.

article in the Scotsman about disabled artists, with input from Sasha (one of the two project leads on Not Going Back To Normal) and Ever Dundas, an Edinburgh writer with M.E.
"We can’t go back to normal. Normal wasn’t good for us.”

Happy birthday 🎉🎂 #Ada Lovelace

Today is Ada’s birthday. She is considered to be the first #programmer ever.
Published in 1843 she describes some #code for Babbage’s Analytical Engine to calculate Bernoulli numbers.

It's always fascinating how unusable alt-tab on is for me.

I can never make out which of the tiny, tiny, tiny windows the one I want is.

Why would you want that instead of program icons that you can distinguish in milliseconds?

"Do you have something to hide?" is a manipulative rebuke to those that use #encryption.

It would help us all turn this conversation around. Because, the answer is: YES, we do have something to hide.

Things that we should hide, and must question why a government or business NEEDS access to:

- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
And more...

Thanks to #FreeSoftware developers, the German #CoronaWarnApp for tracing #COVID19 risk contacts is available on @fdroidorg without any Google dependencies. This not only fosters software freedom, but also sets the ground for innovative features.

when leftists do it it's called "propaganda", but when corporations do it it's called "advertising", when liberals do it it's called "the news", and when nazis do it it's called "just a joke"

So 18% of the population of India organised the largest general strike in history. A quarter of a billion people. 3.2% of all living humans on planet Earth. And the English speaking world is mostly just... not paying attention?

It reminds me of advice from an infosec person or other, for traveling to #defcon. The advice was not to have stickers on your laptop b/c they might be like you know, too edge for the asshole TSA.

And I thought that was hilarious, b/c I walk around brown 24/7. Can't take that off.

Really helped cement, for me, that for white folks, this is all just a game. They can change their clothes, take off their stickers, change their ethics, and fit in again whenever. They can't really have 100% buy-in

The Pandemic Heroes Who Gave us the Gift of Time and Gift of Information

Moderna’s vaccine was apparently designed in just a few days, over a weekend, after the genetic sequence became available on January 10th, 2020.

Here’s why that date matters: the sequence was published ten days before China acknowledged the severity of the problem by admitting sustained human-to-human transmission and shutting down the city of Wuhan, on January 20th. The sequence was published while China—and the WHO, which depended on China for information—were still downplaying what was going on, in their official statements. The sequence wasn’t published in an official document. Instead, it was published independently in an open-source depository by Yong-Zhen Zhang, a professor at the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center and School of Public Health.

If you needed scientific reasons to hate leaf blowers: here you go:

»running a leafblower for 30 minutes creates more emissions than driving a F-150 pickup truck 3800 miles. About one-third of the gasoline that goes into this sort of engine is spewed out, unburned, in an aerosol mixed with oil in the exhaust.«

Very cool -- is a new privacy-friendly Reddit frontend, similar to Invidious / YouTube, Bibliogram / Instagram, and Nitter / Twitter.

Source code:

- No JavaScript or ads
- All requests go through the backend, client never talks to Reddit
- Prevents Reddit from tracking your IP or JavaScript fingerprint
- Lightweight (teddit frontpage: ~30 HTTP requests with ~270 KB of data downloaded vs. Reddit frontpage: ~190 requests with ~24 MB)
