The year is 5019. Humans, as we know them, are long gone. The Earth is inhabited chiefly by advanced, sapient machines.

more about the chromium monoculture: except I don't agree with the conclusion. Just look how it ended up with the Android Open-Source Project

Look, I'm worried about the monoculture and as a dev I could chip in by debugging my websites in first. But by god are the firefox debugging tools annoyingly buggy! It took several months before the network tab showed the request parameters correctly. Now it stops at a breakpoint even when it has been long removed, only restarting the browser helps. It's utterly impossible to debug service workers, they just randomly disappear. Firefox needs to get the priorities straight

I guess that means I won't be able to visit my friends in the US for the foreseeable future. That's incredibly sad, but at some point you just got to take a stance and make a decision. Several lines have been crossed, and for me personally that's just one too many.

Dear American friends: only you can fix this horrible mess. Go and vote.

and this is why I subscribe to my youtubers through RSS feed and watch videos only after I download them to my harddrive instead of on the site: I don't want to be told what I like. I want to be the one making that decision.

I just found out that google removed the TOTP 2-fa option. So the only way to enable 2-fa on gmail is to either give them your phone number (be vulnerable to sim swapping) or have google play service on your phone (share your every tap with google). Or have Yubikey. I'm really starting to hate you, Google
