The search results I've been getting from DuckDuckGo lately have been noticeably less reliable. I keep having to !g it because the DDG results are not heplful. Feels like something changed. Is it just me?

I think Apple forgot that they have an app called FileMerge that comes with Xcode and that it badly needs some TLC. The copyright says 2018, it doesn't always open with the correct font, and it doesn't support dark mode.

Someone said "is that still a thing?" when I announced I was on Mastodon. Is it?
Boost this so we actually get a few votes maybe? How far can it go?

Glad to see Unilever pulling away from Facebook, but it’s appalling that the batshit craziness dial had to get to 11 times 10 for something to happen. Unilever pulling back is not even a good thing, it’s just a bare minimum, if even.
