Sorry Thingiverse, but you're an asshole.

Dear Chrome, your sneaky scheme to pretend you're more stable than you are by quietly restarting crashed processes* doesn't work when it causes 3 hidden videos to autoplay at once and I have to manually kill the lot.

Please stop.

* At least that's what I assume they're doing the other options are equally terrible.

Web developers, if you intentionally hide your RSS feed, you are ensuring you go on my blocklist forever. Trying to hide your RSS feed when it clearly still works, does not make me want to sign up for your newsletter. It actually makes me never want to support you

I really wish OSS communities would stop defaulting to Discord or Slack. Your software isn’t a lifestyle. I don’t want to live with the goddamn thing. I want a forum I can visit once in a while, not to take out an attention mortgage.

In the UK everyone is either a politician, a priest, or a detective. Anyone who doesn't comply is forced into the ultimate punishment of panel shows and documentaries.

Apple will install a back door to Messages and will scan your photos on-device against an inscrutable and unauditable database. Extremely bad news. Others will follow (or are silently doing it already) and there is still no good alternative to Apple/Google’s ecosystems.
