The Unisys ICON 2 is one of my favourite computers of all time. I learned Turing and C on these, and also spent a lot of time playing games before school. These ran QNX and were my first experience with a Unix-like OS. The Ontario government destroyed the computers and software and they are now incredibly rare.

If the team at DuckDuckGo were to create a new privacy protection tool, which problem would you most like to see us solve?

Even printers are trying to get your data. @robjheaton takes a deep dive on an HP printer.

someone fill me in: over on another social media platform, everyone and their brother were migrating their products, services, whatever to CloudFare (Flare? idk) and everyone in the #FOSS world seem to be moving AWAY from it, if my observations are correct.

Why is this?
What is this service?

I never heard of CF until everyone started to move away or TO the service

The Firefox Task Manager can help you find out which tabs are consuming too many system resources

Did you know that Firefox comes with a built-in task manager? That's right. And with this task manager, you can see which of your tabs are causing your system to slow down. This is an incredibly important (and underused) tool in the Firefox tool box. You can see how to access and use it at techrepublic.com/article/how-t.
A further useful tip related to this is to set Firefox to automatically suspend background tabs if memory resources are low. To do this go to about:config and search for lowmemory and change to true.

Spinning the trackball was oddly satisfying. I can still remember the sound it made.
