Accomplishment of the day:
Introduced my co-workers to
Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp
The wiki page kinda highlights just how absurd that show was.
According to something I read last night, four countries re-activated shortwave radio broadcasts in the past six months.
We're constantly told it's in decline, that the internet is the way forward for international broadcasting, but perhaps increased levels of world tension have concentrated a few minds.
Websites can be blocked, local radio relays in foreign capitals can be turned off (eg the BBC in Hong Kong recently) but shortwave crosses borders.
Firefox Color 2.0.0 has arrived!
I pushed the deploy button on this one, myself.
Worked on this a bunch over the summer. Streamed myself on Twitch adding custom image support. We revamped the UI, added in some new theme properties. There's even a theme randomizer now.
One small step
I got one of the new Yubikey5. The NFC thing is a bit odd, but darn useful, particularly with the YubiAuth app on my phone. I wish it was easier to use the YubiAuth app on a chromebook, but I've got a somewhat hacky script setup that works just fine.
Honestly, if you want online security, really consider getting one. (Even the $20 one is definitely worth the money)
Help Rae the Doe: after a recent comic suggested gamers should support the 250 ppl laid off by Telltale, Olive Brinker (Rae's creator) had to deactivate her account because of the subsequent mass harassment by the GooberGrape movement.
If you can, please support Olive on patreon at https://www.patreon.com/raethedoe. She does amazing work for the trans community and deserves support during this attack.
