@vurpo This is no longer the case for Fractal Next.

Basically, anyone who uses Fractal should be aware that it may leak their Matrix account's password in case someone steals their device. This makes it unsuited for use on devices with a high risk of theft and getting compromised, such as phones.

Fractal (the Gnome @matrix client) still stores the logged-in user's password on the computer, even though this is what a client is supposed to *not* do. If my device somehow gets compromised, I can usually remotely delete that session off my account and remain safe, however the Fractal developers thought ( ) that it would be a usability benefit for the user if it remembers their password whenever their session gets remotely signed out. What??

There's even an entire chain, R-kioski, in Finland who's entire proposition used to be that they are closer to you and have longer opening hours than the alternatives (at the cost of being more expensive of course). Nowadays they are neither: I have one corner shop and one supermarket within 1 km which are open around the clock, whereas my closest R-kioski location closes at 21. Even "normal" corner shops tend to be open until 22 or 23 here!

A strange evolution: grocery stores and supermarkets are opening more and more around the clock where I live, whereas the old kiosks, service stations (like gas stations) that used to have the longest opening hours are actually reducing them

I saw a comment thread arguing about what the term "overloaded" means

the war on Christmas will not end until Christmas ends its illegal occupation of November

I've noticed <unnamed very big streaming service> put out extremely low-effort low-budget ads on YouTube. I wonder what their strategy behind this is.
