Libaries without a 'changelog.md' file should be forbidden. Nobody wants to scroll though the GitHub releases page!

Found out that migrating from one user to another is not as simple as I would have expected, but still very doable. Wrote it up to share the process I used: defragged.org/2021/01/13/migra

@zkat what happened to Entropic?

Got excited after your initial post about this universal package manager and I just randomly thought about it but seems like commits have stalled.

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

Indigenous people from modern day Canada and Alaska invented the first sunglasses. The oldest pair known dates back to the year 1200. They work by limiting the amount of sunlight that hits your eyes, preventing snow blindness.

The fact that Cyberpunk 2077 is getting so much press and attention is frustrating to me, if only because EA/Respawn pulled the exact same situation months ago and yet it was the best selling Star Wars game of all time—and press didn’t seem to call out the PS4 issues.

"It doesn’t feel like we’re celebrating games anymore, instead preferring to attack them and the people who devote their lives to creating them. Reveling in being offended by them. We’re drowning in toxicity instead of fascination."

Does anybody cross-post to Mastodon and the bird site? What tool do you use?

Not asking for myself but to recommend to another dev.

Loving Zelda & Chill II. I just wish it was on YouTube Music as an actual album instead of a video! But this is the first time I’ve been happy YouTube can pull from YouTube videos to source music, as I can still listen in my preferred app on my phone. music.youtube.com/watch?v=rJlY
