„Diese staatliche Überwachung ist ein neuer Höhepunkt der Nine-Eleven-Politik. Seit dem 11. September 2001 ist die Politik der Welt, die früher die westliche hieß, dabei, ihre Rechtsstaaten in Präventions- und Sicherheitsstaaten umzubauen. […]
Ein Wunsch zum bevorstehenden großen Grundgesetzjubiläum: Der Bürger hat einen Anspruch auf ein Parlament und eine Regierung, die dieselbe Nervenstärke und dasselbe Rechtsbewusstsein haben wie die Richter in Karlsruhe.“

Is 400 Bad Request a moral judgment?

You can avoid #YouTube's weird algorithms and broken subscription system by subscribing to channels through RSS instead. You don't need an account, just a feed reader.

Put the channel's username in this address:

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?u

You can then add this RSS address to your feed reader app.

For example, OnePotChefShow's RSS feed is:

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?u

You can also make RSS feeds from channel IDs (strings of letters and numbers):

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?c

My phone: "You're running low on storage: 1.00 GB available."

Me: "MY FIRST COMPUTER HAD 4K RAM AND NO PERSISTENT STORAGE I THINK YOU CAN GET BY WITH A FREAKING GIG"

So I had some trouble logging into a site just now. I kept thinking something was wrong with my password when in fact it was the username that was wrong. I entered “raφ︎” where I should have entered “raφ”. The difference? Glad you asked: one of the φ︎s used a Unicode VARIATION SELECTOR-15 (︎U+FE0E) to force a nice round shape (which does not even work everywhere).

I hate how it’s difficult to distinguish “ from ” in Apple’s San Francisco font. With Helvetica or Lucida Grande, that was much easier.

What kind of instrument is “Cher vocals”?

Imagine if people introduced themselves like Web browsers do

Hi, I'm Michelle, actually I'm Angela, I resemble George but not really. As I was saying, I'm Christine, and also Sam.

Before I started managing supermarkets, I worked in them as a "tech," and it was hard to explain to people what exactly I did, because I did A TON of different things. One of those things, for example, was to make sure things like this didn't happen:

Once again in my own words to make sure more people see it: The Stylish browser extension apparently uploads your browser history robertheaton.com/2018/07/02/st

@njoseph IMHO breaking folks out of the #DataFarms requires every geek to set up a VPS (or box-in-the-closet) for their tribe (150 closest family and friends), and actively trained anyone keen to learn how to do the same; #CommunityHosting more so than #SelfHosting

If I had an MVNO I would call it “Searching” or “No Service” just to troll Apple.
