Pinned toot

I suffer from, among others, light sensitivity.

So if you don't like dark UIs you're not getting any sympathy from me.
In fact, if you like joking about dark UIs/themes being awful/barbaric/whatever I'll likely just mute you because F off.

Note that former is tiny, latter is notably bigger (still not all that big) but apparently hairy AF and therefore super goddamn creepy for its size.

Dangit.
Ran into a centipede in my apartment. There are two types of centipedes in Finland:
The kind that eats crawling insects (like say, the silverfish which live here).
And the other, which I remember little about beyond "also not dangerous".

I considered leaving it alone, but AFAICT it was the latter kind so nopenopenopenope, die.

I've already contacted the bank about this, though I marked it as "I do not need a response" because I have little hope they would respond with anything but PR BS. And that's even if they improve things down the line.

Currently I'm trying to find the balance between "motivated" and "not too angry" to send feedback to Finnish Post.

Talking of which:
Their excuse for trying to lower the pay was "to keep the company competitive" but apparently they could afford to hire a know-nothing marketer who redesigned their website so the top half of each page is taken by a header that most of the time does nothing and rest of the time is an advertisement for their phone app and user account system.

Latter of which leaked user data couple of years back, by the by.

Worse: Instead of allowing users to opt-out, which is already the wrong way around, Finnish Post's site just tells users to disable cookies from their browser if they don't want the tracking cookies.

I really thought I couldn't think less of the managers at Finnish Post after they tried to lower the already low pay of their workers last year.

Ugh. Ran into a couple of new Finnish websites trying to comply with GDPR in ways that makes it clear they don't give a single damn about user's privacy while trying to give it a positive spin.

One of them is a bank, so they're effectively paid for already and shouldn't need the pennies marketers give them to put tracking cookies and the other is Finnish Post, which is a paid service and also has no excuses.

"For 18 months, residents of a village in Wales have been mystified as to why their broadband internet crashed every morning.

Now engineers have finally identified the reason: A second-hand television that emitted a signal that interfered with the connection."

Hills seem bad.
People complain about the struggle of going up hill.
It is also considered bad when things "go down hill"
And hills are places on which people choose to die.

Avoid hills, just go around.
