Every right-wing political leader in Europe is abducted to a secret prison.
The abductors turn out to be secret missionaries of the superhuman. They explain to the politicians that they find their pathetic racial prejudice offensive and that fat white swastika lovers have no place in the future. The Next Society is made up by strong, smart & powerful people of ALL races.
The politicians now must choose: Do they want a place in the Next Society of mixed-race superhumans?
83.5% of all websites use #PHP. As of last year, less than 20% use PHP 7.1 or higher. Security support for PHP 5.6 - PHP 7.0 ends six short months from now. Last year saw the third highest number for vulnerability discoveries at 43, after 2016 which saw 107 vulnerability discoveries. Friends don't let friends use PHP <7.1. #InfoSec
Ambivalent with the popularity of Markdown.
Not that it isn't clever, practical and readable compared to various HTML incarnations or LaTeX, for instance, but a lot of recent apps let you use Markdown as default writing tool - in places where you would not usually be coding the markup for your text.

It really is the assholes who make the difference.

The Debian Gitlab instance is available for every FOSS project and not only for Debian-related ones. As long as the project respects the Debian Free Software Guidelines, you can use the instance
Riseup maintains a Gitlab instance for radical projects named 0xacab.
