The link Professor Collard used. It's a publicity page celebrating this.
I'm wondering if you have any #thoughts on the "#Web #Environment #Integrity" proposal by some #Google folks. I wrote a short thread about it, but would be interested in hearing your thoughts before reading it (if you do read it - I'm not demanding it 😀 ).
Re: it's essentially a proposal to #lock #down #browsers so they can't do things the web #publishers don't want - think #adblockers, #extensions that modify content, etc.
More manufacturers are planning to adopt Tesla's charging connector, so they can use super chargers. I say we avoid these shenanigans altogether and replace EV charging connectors with a couple of big alligator clips you clamp onto the charger.
Better yet, just have a couple bare wires dangling out from both the car and the charger, and then you just twist them together.
Collect the original!
Last Saturday, for the first time in my 43 years, I submitted my fiction for publication. It felt like a big deal, and I wrote about it on my blog. Link in bio.

An #IndigenousLed #initiative is still pursuing #ownership of the #TransMountain #pipeline in spite of the project's ballooning price tag.
"We are not going away, just because it's $30.9 billion. We are entering into the early stages of negotiations," said Stephen Mason, managing director of #ProjectReconciliation , a #Calgary based group that is working to facilitate the purchase of a major #equity stake in the pipeline for 129 #FirstNations along the route.
How terrible do you think it'll go if I just switch all my Clocks to UTC and ignore DST and so on?
Works for @tarper24, so maybe I can pull it off too :blobfoxthink:
Facebook is making a decentralized Twitter clone -- that apparently you'll have to log into with Instagram? -- or so reports say.
What could possibly go wrong?
I guess they see the blood in the water around Twitter.
https://wtop.com/maryland/2023/03/transurban-announces-it-will-exit-proposed-toll-lane-expansion/ Excellent news…I do not want Montgomery County to turn into Northern Virginia…where you have to pay to drive on the the federal highway system if you want to get anywhere on time. Gov More is “da bestest”. Yay. #I270 #TransUrban #badidea #equanimity #climate #GovWesMoore
Fly Agaric is not a good way to go, that's shamanic, and basically just poison. I actually can't fathom what they are thinking. Muscarine is just poison, not actually hallucinogenic, many mushrooms contain lethal levels of that poison.
now if they had psilocybe cubensis... now that's a good time!

Oh, god no. It's alcohol-free erguotou soda.
@hiramring @linguistics @elmerot @sigmoid.social They clearly should impact. In fact, many #hashtags are used inserted into #text, and obviously completely stripping them is a #badidea :))
But it's true that perhaps the bunch of hashtags put at the end of posts is not so relevant, usually put there for findability purposes.
Fairies, the Good Neighbors, the fair folk.
I have to laugh at people who have no idea what the fair folk are capable of. They have not read any of the stories or the recounting of events that have told over generations.
I read many posts about people wanting to work with the Good Neighbors. LOL I know better.
I have nothing to do with the Fairy Folk. If you want to know about them, look them up.
Tinkerbell is Walt Disney. Fairy Folk are not.
Reading the forum thread about signal dropping SMS and found this whch perfectly encapsulates my feelings about it
"Hello, Just made this account to ask you to please reverse the short sighted decision. I have been able to convince about a dozen or more friends or family to make the switch over Signal specifically because it does both Secure messaging & non-secure SMS. This gives the lowest barrier to entry as these “normal people” that don’t want to have to think about using 2 different apps to achieve communication whoever they need to contact.
The number one thing wrong with tech especially on the security side is lack of usability, we’ve had encrypted e-mails for decades and it has never been widely adopted because it is a pain in the butt to setup, please don’t become another useless security/messaging app with a higher barrier of entry by making this change.
Sadly most of the people I’ve convinced to swap is because a. it supports sms and b. it supports more secure messaging, if “a” goes away they will move right back to 100% insecure SMS because Signal no longer supports it. These people do not want to miss messages from their: Bank, Steam, Epic, Cell Phone Company, and any number of 2 factor authentication services that are still using SMS and/or friends who haven’t yet been convinced to move to Signal. Much less have to open an entirely separate apps to continue using these service/having conversations with other non-signal friends.
With all that being said please don’t raise the barrier for entry to the less tech literate people of our society, keep SMS support."
I was pondering recently. We're at that point for annual #COVID19 shots, just like annual flu shots, for those who want them. I understand the vaccines are currently on a 4-6 month efficacy. #pandemic

Waning of efficacy begins at 4 months!
My blog (https://slott-softwarearchitect.blogspot.com) has something over 1000 entries.
I've decided to move it to github so I can edit offline and upload.
Which points out the number of things that are broken in the blog because of WYSIWYG editing.
Much of the HTML is unexpected <div>...</div> nonsense that can't trivially be cleaned up with a text edit.

Vielleicht nicht ganz so gruselig wie wenn es auf einem NAS läuft, aber gruselig nonetheless.

Completely normal idea: can I load a coredump and call an arbitrary function in it without the original process existing anymore? I need to do that... because reasons.
I should be able to revive something if I can create enough mappings and never fault-to-read-storage, right?

Fury Road was a fucking amazing movie. And this quote, just embodies the mindless fanboy. "Go do some stupid shit for me that will probably get you killed or arrested, but it's okay because you're doing it for me!" said the orange dictator. I posted this comic in 2015. but the movie quote fits in .... so .... many... situations. It's just a bad idea.

Tis the season! #christmas
This year we were way overdue to replace our Christmas lights, it was becoming a safety issue since we had our other set for over 10 years. So, I picked the "pretty" star-shaped lights because it seemed they would look great & match my starfish theme...yeah #badidea. Every corner of each star gets stuck on everything, it was a tangled mess 🤬 Took me way longer to put them on, needless to say I'm definitely not looking forward to taking them down. But for now, I'll enjoy the jollyness of the #holidayseason #encinitas #socal
Well, that sounds like a *great* idea! /s
I call this photo "How to kill trees in one easy step." The town where I live removed all the plants from the Main Street flowerbeds and replaced them with rocks. I told the Parks Director why I thought this was a very bad idea, and he made it clear he was only doing what he had been told. The City Manager is very defensive, arguing that the rocks will be easier to maintain and look better. Time will tell . . . #rockmulch #trees #plants #badidea #gardening
So a mad billionaire has bought his way into the US military industrial space programme.
He has plans to use his financial might to engineer a race of perfect beings and has ringed the earth with satellites, which he can use to destroy mankind.
Who'd have guessed in 1979 that a Roger Moore Bond film would provide Elon Musk and his cronies with a template for world domination.
And it's the plot of one of the worst Bond movies to boot!
I just saw someone boost a post about deleting toots more than 2 weeks old to help Masto server performance.
I can't think of a good reason to do this.
Right now people are talking about how if twitter gets lost we lose a gigantic repository of information. So we're going to do that automatically??
Also, the reason we have hashtags is so they're searchable. Even old ones.
Imagine, you're writing a very long book and in the end, you get locked out by your #cloud-driven text processing software: https://www.technologyreview.com/2022/07/15/1056042/chinese-novel-censored-before-shared/
It was a #badidea in the first place. 🤷
Yet another example for https://karl-voit.at/cloud/
