Money, Amazon 

I get that Amazon is mistreating its workers and all, but can we please get *viable* alternatives?

Money, Amazon 

People: “Don't buy from Amazon! Support local business!”

Local business: “We have florescent tubes in 90cm and 100cm.”

Fluorescent tube in my kitchen: *is 97cm long*

Local business: “You'll need an electrician to swap out the whole thing. Will cost you about 300 CHF.”

Amazon: *has 97cm fluorescent tubes for 16€*

Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:

Finally managed to make the touchscreen rotated correctly on my under sway / wayland with this little config snippet:

Relationships, isolation 

Do you have friends that disappear into a bubble with their partner?

Keep contacting them. They might need it more than it looks like.


Small, “privacy focussed” companies under capitalism: “Big companies want all your data! You should give it all to us instead, which is somehow differrent!”

PSA: the new git 2.28 now allows to specify the name of the default branch via "git config --global init.defaultBranch main" for example, setting it to "main". Nice it landed (and finally useful names default branches without template hacking \o/).

politics, paid employment 

If you ever wonder how pervasive capitalism is in our society I would like to invite you to remember that a famous songwriter felt the need to clarify that we girls are playing nice and only want to have fun once the working day is done.

It was kitty spamming a display connection error several times per second…

Service I pay money for: *sends me emails about their other products I have no interest in*

Me: *clicks unsubscribe link*

Firefox: “uMatrix has blocked this request.”

fuse network file system developers be like “Assume faultless spherical broadband Internet subscriber access in a frictionless vacuum”…

I'm not saying that it is wrong to use other languages (I write a lot of Go code, for example), it's just a bit annoying that the tooling doesn't translate.

Developers: *write everything in C and C++*

Infrastructure folks: *develop distcc, ccache and various build tools to reduce build times*

Develop: “Hey, let's all switch to other languages!”

People are making fun of the Cloudflare outage but couldn't offer a similar service at a more reliable level 🙄

money, insurance issues, hate of poor people 

How the insurance system works:

“People are affected by issues that could destroy their lives!“

“That's nice, we could sell them insurance.”

“Ok but not everyone can get insurance…”

“Then we just make the insurance mandatory!”

“Ok but what about those who can't afford mandatory insurance…?”

“Easy, we fine them!”
