Duolingo just lost my 78 day streak... I’m free!!

Can't believe I've only just discovered ClearURLs... and via news that Google has just removed it from the Chrome Webstore... Sucks to be a Chrome user.


I’ve got a 74 day streak on Duolingo, and it’s just making me stressed 😣

@aral Huh. Well, call me lazy, but I chucked small-tech.org/videos in to Feedbin and it didn't auto-discover... and now I've checked and see you don't have a link tag in your head 😬

@aral Don't suppose you've got an RSS for the small web videos page?

House hunting is a roller coaster of “wow, that looks affordable” followed by “oh, that’s why”

A world where we don’t trust anyone and where everything is a monetary transaction is a world, in the words of Oscar Wilde, that knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.

Actions matter more than words. So here’s a simple action you can take to show that you care.

Don't attribute to malice what you can attribute to incompetence. Internal memo says Facebook's failure to act in preventing abuse outside the West is lack of resources and/or interest buzzfeednews.com/article/craig

I find refactors with code path switches that include functions titled `oldCodePath` and `newCodePath` really frustrating... and just plain lazy!

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.

I made damson jam today. I highly recommend it if you can find a tree.
