Like ? Know ? I created a tool to generate RSS feeds from arbitrary websites using CSS selectors.
And it's called... Feed me up, Scotty!

Why did nobody tell me about Consent-O-Matic? It's a browser extension that automatically clicks on GDPR consent dialogs to indicate that you do not consent to your data being shared. Available for all major browsers.

For anyone with ideas about how to create more inclusive and just societies, the Landecker Democracy Fellowship is now accepting 30 changemakers who will shape in the digital age:

I just noticed "foreach" on npm is controlled by a single maintainer.

I also noticed they let their personal email domain expire, so I bought it before someone else did.

I now control "foreach" on NPM, and the 36826 projects that depend on it.

One of the most important feature requests we've heard from you is "WHERE THE HECK IS MY #THUNDERBIRD MOBILE APP?"

Here's a straight answer:

YES, we're excited to announce that an Android version of Thunderbird is coming!

We'll have more details to share with you in a few weeks. We'll talk to you about it here, and over on our blog at blog.thunderbird.net.

Working in a distributed team has its challenges, but I do appreciate the structure in my day imposed by limited timezone overlap.

I start my day catching up on emails and chat messages, followed by code reviews so that they're ready when my colleagues start their day. I can then do some focused jamming on my own work, and end the day with meetings.

I'm temporarily visually impaired today, which I figured was the perfect moment to properly use a screen reader. And... I just don't know how people do it. How do you navigate a page of unlabelled headings?

Check out my brandnew webcomic, "Contra Chrome":

Featuring Shoshana Zuboff, vegan Piranhas, and everything you ever wanted to know about #Chrome but were afraid to ask!

Read and download for free – hope you like it! 😊

Just a reminder that tomorrow is April Fools'. Don't leave your computer unattended.

In completely unrelated news: I updated my VSCode extension "Whoopee cushion keyboard". It adds fart noises as you type, and with the new version, you can now enable it per language (command palette: "This is a smelly business").

Can't publish something like this without wrapping it in layers of caveats and reassurances 😅

- This won't affect runtime behaviour
- Existing TS code would continue to work
- Runtime behaviour is not affected
- Types would be optional
- Does not influence runtime behaviour

The Storybook team is doing very cool work. Really hoping we'll get plug-and-play Next.js integration soon.

does anyone who is visually impaired or otherwise rely on screen readers have any experience with trying to use linux ?

from what i can tell the linux experience seems pretty hostile to screen readers, and there's not very much resources dedicated to orca, which seems to be the main implementation .

please share your experiences with me if you can, i want to try to make things better .

please boost :boost_requested:

People are literally getting rickrolled by people younger than rickrolling itself. Imagine that.

I like Progressive Web Apps, but I'm not convinced about installing them yet. Where's my tracker blocker? My other extensions? Browser preferences? Synced passwords?

Given how most browser chrome disappears when you scroll anyway, I find I'm mostly sticking with bookmarks, possibly as an icon on my home screen.

Being trained in the scientific method means that you get to prefix your bad arguments with "anecdotal, but".

Mozilla's unique selling point is that it's a non-profit. However, its real strength is that it answers to its community of contributors. It's not a perfect organisation, and it makes mistakes, but it can and will be held accountable, and that's what makes it better.

Welp, just posted my first StackOverflow question as a result of my first fight with the borrow checker, as is tradition. Now to wait until it's closed as a duplicate.

But if anyone has any pointers (hehe), would appreciate: stackoverflow.com/questions/70
