Cnet vs cookies: « to function properly our site requires (no possible opt-out) a bunch of analytics cookies…» … really? (Hits the close button)
Because of #GDPR, USA Today decided to run a separate version of their website for EU users, which has all the tracking scripts and ads removed. The site seemed very fast, so I did a performance audit. How fast the internet could be without all the junk! 🙄
5.2MB → 500KB
So many sites do:
“Here are cookie, advertising, tracking policies. Here is an OK button.”
After not clicking the ok button but attempting to continue:
“You must agree to our tracking policy”
That is explicitly not allowed/illegal under GDPR.
American companies including the Washington Post really have a damn hard time wrapping their head around that an agreement means you can decline to agree to it, and GDRP says refusing to be tracked is not grounds for a site to refuse service.
Vim tip: spell check
to use different language
:set spell spelllang=en_gb
If you’re in neovim and the language files aren’t found, try launching with no plugins nvim -u NORC before setting spell, you should be prompted to download files

an attempt to collect everyone’s blogs - so as to not let precious non-commercial content go unread and unnoticed - is likely the only time i’ll ever ask:
