@Autofocus Thanks for the kind words. I don't think this will be the end of MDN. More soon!

While wireless charging might use relatively more power than a cable, it’s often written off as negligible. The extra power consumed by charging one phone with wireless charging versus a cable is the equivalent of leaving one extra LED light bulb on for a few hours. It might not even register on your power bill. At scale, however, it can turn into an environmental problem.

Thanks to the future I have some smart lights in my room and the app doesn’t work, so they turn on every 7.30am regardless whether I want them on or not and there is nothing I can do about it.

You can't say covid-19 is so safe we can reopen schools then turn around and say it's too dangerous to have an election.

there is a style guide for describing in which order to put component methods: and even an eslint-plugin for it.

ip-tools (the ip command in Linux) set a useless bitmask by default when manually setting an interface address. Eg will be set as which wouldn't allow any other node in the subnet. Therefore it is necessary to explicitly set

Found out that I can run Chromium without glitches when I start it with --no-gpu flag. So it is the Intel UHD graphics thing. @Intel ...wanna tell me something about Linux graphics drivers?

Man muss sich das wirklich auf der Zunge zergehen lassen. Eine Kontrolle wird rechtswidrig durchgeführt, ist ergebnislos, und führt dann zu was? Einem Platzverweis.
