guess which all-powerful tech monopoly is breaking ublock origin (and umatrix, and likely many other similar add-ons, such as noscript) in their browser, which happens to be the most popular browser in the world?

who could have foreseen this? who would ever think that an advertising company's web browser would end up breaking compatibility with an ad blocker? frankly i'm shocked

that moment when you're happy about execution errors, because that way you see that what you did actually has got an impact on the code

gore, etymology 

Thinking about how "sarcophagus" literally means "flesh-eater", it occurred to me to wonder if "sarcasm" shared the same "flesh" root.

Turns out it does; its ancestor is σαρκάζω, meaning "I strip the flesh (off of something), I gnash my teeth (in anger)".

Major security issue for Apple Users 

FaceTime currently has a bug that allows the caller to immediately listen to audio on the other person's phone even if they don't answer, and even pipe another person in if they want. This still works even if the recipient hits "ignore" via the screen or power button.

Until this is patched you should DISABLED FACETIME completely.

good job,
You should believe it's possible to discern that two files in different paths may or may not have the same name. 🤦‍♀️​

Think about how many times in a day on the Web you click “I agree” when you really don’t agree just so you can get on with your day and use an everyday thing.

This is not how consent is supposed to work.

Commutes are free for employers. If those 2 hours lost on the road would be paid, remote work would have been the standard since the 90's.

As this blood moon is occurring, here's something to consider. The Moon is 1.3 light seconds away from Earth. That means, if you shine a laser pointer at a mirror on the moon's surface, it will take 2.6 seconds before you see the laser pointer back.

All of the planets of the solar system can fit, to scale, end to end, between the Earth and the moon. It took the Apollo astronauts 3 days to get to the moon--flying at 7 miles per second.

baby is still sleeping and both my partners are out already, so I'm stuck with sitting around watching old Doctor Who episodes, or working. I'm working.

Hi all! I'm a trans woman and PhD student in linguistics at Stanford working on a project about voice feminization, one that I think might make a big splash. If you have feminized your voice, I would love to speak with you about the possibility of participating! You can reach me here or at Thanks!

on github:
triggered a new monthly goal for me: writing 5 pull requests per month. They don't have to be big (fixing typos counts, too), but contributes to being a bit more active and to actually engage in some FLOSS development :)
