I hate that google calls standard IMAP auth “less secure” while simultaneously being restrictive about who is allowed to use their OAuth login. They make life harder for our users and tell them there is something wrong with our security model when really the issue is bureaucracy

Parents: are your kids exchanging vi keymaps?

wtf: one word forward, then to the first 'f'

LOL: insert a new line with a single 'L' just above bottom of screen.

fml: move to one character past the next 'm'

tbh: move to two characters before the next 'b'

dtf: delete to 'f'

The greatest mystery ever is why phone keyboards are 123-456-789 but numerical keypads are 789-456-123

I hate to point out the glaringly obvious, but when they call it a “data policy” and not a “privacy policy”, it’s a red flag. They’re avoiding that tricksy privacy word for a reason…

This post is brought to you by another day spent trawling the policies of jaw-droppingly invasive trackers.

That being said, there was some cooking involved, and I might take care of some of my pending FLOSS contributions later.

Today must be the laziest of the lazy summer weekend days. I can't remember the last time I did so little :blobmiou:

you know people think its pretty ridiculous when old people get totally lost using their computer but i get the same way whenever i try to use windows

Discovery of the day: the ThinLTO support in has all the benefits of link-time optimization (smaller binaries, cross-module optimizations), without the very noticeable slowdown traditinal LTO has for big projects (Web engines, I am looking at you!). Bonus track: when passing the needed linker options to configure a cache directory, rebuilds will be faster.

Documentation: clang.llvm.org/docs/ThinLTO.ht

Travel to/from work should be paid time. In this case a lot of companies will start to love the remote working

FWIW, it clearly looks to me now that the whole feature will be completed on time for GNOME 3.34, and that makes me very happy.

The last days I have gotten back to work on my patch set to revamp the Web ad blocker: gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/epiphan

After rebasing and adapting to the new public API (available since WebKit 2.24), I added the periodic update check, direct loading of local ruleset files, support in the profile migration tool, and changed the default to switch from EasyList in the ABP to the WebKit native JSON ruleset format.

Only one item left to go: making sure filters are enabled before loading web pages.

So here's a thing about #nativeAmericans and #horses newsmaven.io/indiancountrytoda

Another lesson in don't believe white people's idea of history, b/c oh hey they're full of shit. Also, whites make up history for political reasons

Fun stuff: GtkConstraintLayout, the equivalent of Apple's AutoLayout and Android's ConstraintLayout, has landed in GTK's master branch, and will be available in the next major release: gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/mer

There's going to be a blog post on the development blog soon.

@mntmn Probably you may want to know that the Debian packages for the WPE WebKit components are starting to materialize! See for example ftp-master.debian.org/new/libw

Your friendly reminder that slack once had an IRC bridge and they tore it down. The reason was that they could not afford to maintain it. If so, why didn't they opensource it for the community to maintain? Now we have split communities and one more walled garden. And a growing generation that thinks a centralized system owned by a single company is normal. Thanks, slack.

gmail rejects some random subset of email from servers that don't have IPv6 reverse dns set..

so if your hosting provider happens to enable ipv6 autoconfig one happy day, everything breaks with no warning

Everything in this talk about package management could also apply to social media:

- You have no way to hold Jack Dorsey or Mark Zuckerberg accountable.
- The real owners do not care whether it is pork bellies or our commons; the goal is to make money from it
- We have ceded our commons to a private entity.
- We decided this was okay. We voted with our feet.
