My present Recaptcha policy:

Request audio.

Respond "Fuck you Google"

Repeat until access granted, or the joy fades.

Bonus: All audio AI parsing tends to "Fuck you Google".

Is there a good frontend for DOSBox (Windows 8 compatible) that you'd give to a non-techy family member?

I wanna give my brother a #retrogaming flash drive for Christmas with all of our old CD games set up. I can just do a bunch of icons with separate config files, like GOG does, but if there's an ultra-user-friendly rig already then that would be great too.

is a simple time tracker.

Worklog is a program which tracks time spent on various activities. Worklog reads from a project file which maps keys to activities. When started the keymap is displayed for quick reference, and keys can be pressed to start the clock for the corresponding activity. Once the activity is switched the time spent on the activity is logged to a file.

The .org TLD is at risk. It's being sold to a private equity firm, which likely won't end well. A lot of non-profits (including the US Girl Scouts!) have signed a document protesting this. savedotorg.org/

@oldvetcodes @fatboy Well maybe he would be rich, but doing "it" should not be done, there is no way to have micro-targeted ads and not ruin society

What I'm saying is that by definition you cannot have targeted advertising without being invasive. The very act of targeting makes it invasive already.

Of course a valid question would also be to ask if any advertising at all is OK, or if pushing people to consume is in and of itself already not OK.

Hard questions, no easy answers...

@fatboy
Not surprised either, and It's likely that they will get away with it in court too.

We can't rely on laws to fully protect our privacy, it's our own responsibility. The more consumers become aware of this, the more people will #deletefacebook . Let's hope that they turn towards a floss alternative when they do. 🙈
