PantherX Beta 3 goes live with 51 issues closed: community.pantherx.org/t/panth.

We are already working on Beta 4, which will finally include an automated installer. Stay tuned 😉

Who cares about web performance when you're stuck on the cookie dialog for 10 seconds. Why can't the browser A) tell the site your preferences, B) enforce your choices as much as technically possible and C) optionally report sites that do not behave

So complicated?

LXQt finally has a new Twitter account twitter.com/lxqt_project. You know what to do! Convince them to join Mastodon too 😄

Last month the Netherlands passed #RouterFreedom into law: all ISPs must let customers choose their own Internet hardware and still provide tech support at no extra cost. That little box is your home-internet gatekeeper, and now in NL it can work for you fsfe.org/news/2021/news-202108

With IPv4's now costing in the range of $40 isn't it time to make the switch?

Firefox Nightly (90.0.2) is looking more and more like iOS. I don't think I like all those curves ...

PantherX OS Beta 2 is coming in approx. 7 days. Here's a sneak-preview of what to expect community.pantherx.org/t/panth

Depending on the region you look at, anywhere from 20-90% of the population has a vitamin D deficiency. vitamin-d-covid.shotwell.ca. Either supplement or get some sunshine!

It's hot and Bassdrive is humming. This probably marks my 13th year on this channel. Perfect for programming. archives.bassdrivearchive.com - Friday's are especially great, though there's gems every day, at every hour! There's a live-stream too bassdrive.com. If you don't enjoy this immediately, sleep on it ... try it again, and you'll be hooked 🤪

It's arguably one of the worst distractions to have Mastodon notifications on your desktop. Luckily I'm not that popular.

Email Protection by DuckDuckGo - Sounds good in theory, but do you really want all your emails to go trough another provider? Who's responsible for deliverability? What if they are running out of funds, and that email stops working? What if someone compromises the service? Why not just use (for ex.) Fastmail, and add an alias, and use the built-in SPAM filter?

Sorry, I don't get it.

Incredibly exciting to get official confirmation that Germany's health service (@gematik1@twitter.com) has standardised on Matrix for secure decentralised communications, targeting all 150,000 healthcare organisations in Germany(!!!) 🤯 Read all about it at matrix.org/blog/2021/07/21/ger 💉🇩🇪🚀

I'm currently reading a book about Indian tribes in the US around ~ 1800. Returning to programming after two hours, the classes and objects feel like different tribes, shoved into fenced areas, that now have to communicate with one another. What a thought ...

Do we lean towards object oriented programming because we're tribal? (This is not necessarily a valid question).

#Audacity is dead - may I suggest #SoX as an alternative ? It's a command line tool and has all the power that comes with that. I wrote a tutorial series on how to use it a while ago.

Anyone using Leaseweb around here? We've been trying to order a new server with them for 3 days and even though they are available "within the hour"... they are not.

I feel like I'm in the wrong movie...

It’s the end of June and all that’s circling my mind is, that if we push off the release by just one more week, it will be 2032 ...

This gem is from the official Apple website. "Forest Explorer" they call it. Guess where the users come from?

1. USA (148k)
2. Russia (65k)
3. China (50k)
4. Saudi Arabia (38k)

As if this mix was not hilarious enough, there's also virtually 0 users from the rest of the world.

It's almost as thought someone used the wrong data, to show something totally unrelated 📡
