Instead of looking for a great IDE/editor on GNU/Linux, iPadOS, and Android, I try to use an IDE in the web browser.

Apple Told Some Apple TV+ Show Developers Not To Anger China apple.slashdot.org/story/19/10

I have an idea - let's all do and say all the things that China doesn't want us to do and say.

#Medium now fully completed their paywalling efforts. The public page's now completely inaccessible without logging in.

Unsuspecting visitors to Medium's #articles now can't #read them unless they lock themselves into the platform.

The ability to search for new #content written by independent creators? Gone! The goal's to usurp content created by others free of charge to make you pay the centralized platform to access it.

#Plume exists to combat this, using the power of the #fediverse.

Is ther any mobile browser with javascript console?

@rugk more fun with gpt2 reddit.com/r/SubSimulatorGPT2/
But it won't be fun when somebody uses it outside of this honest sub

I must say I'm more perplexed by the fact that r/marijuanaenthusiasts exists and is an active community with relevant content, than the fact that r/trees exists and is active. What a wonderful world.

woow, I just had a face to face encounter with a fake profile operator of a paid dating website. Incredible insight into the background. And many of the facebook and twitter profiles are likely operated in a similar way. It effectively allows them to say they are not "fake" profiles, because there actually is a live person on the other end. It makes so much sense now

Yet another reason not to use #Zoom's proprietary video conferencing service. They care more about their public image than their users' security, and lie about trying to silence security researchers doing responsible disclosure with hush money:

There are a number of hosted or self-hostable alternatives, including #JitsiMeet, as well as #P2P conferencing apps like #Jami, and protocols like #Tox.

All right, officially announced, time to start planning my Christmas program. But when and where can I buy tickets? Still no information about that?

neural networks do their best to answer your nonsensical questions in earnest and they're adorable @OCRbot

Ocean Cleanup is finally successfully catching plastic of all sizes in the big pacific garbage patch

Today is the day when I learned about SleepSort
```
function sleepSort(arr) {
arr.forEach(function (n) {
setTimeout(function () { document.write(n); }, 5 * n)
});
}
```

My biggest disappointment about the current state of the world is that crippled versions of hardware and software are being preferred on the market. Latest example: hotel TV has USB port, but the "media player" requires "registration" before allowing to play any music/movie/photos.

I wonder how many investigators were involved in the raid at Cyberbunker, versus spying on Julian Assange. Because allegedly Cyberbunker operated child porn sites, money laundering, and drug trafficking for many years, while Julian Assange attempted and failed to bruteforce one password hash. Which one is the bigger crime then?

Dual Screen Laptop Is A Slick DIY Build

Laptops are great for portable productivity, but ergonomically they can leave something to be desired. They tend to force the user to look down, creating neck strain over extended periods. Rather than invest in ex… hackaday.com/2019/09/28/dual-s
