Flamegraphs for NES games. Pretty straightforward, and incredibly useful: it already pointed me to two "//TODO Optimze it" code sections 😅
This is aimed at enhancing user privacy. It's just laughable.
“The search giant (Google) also announced earlier this year it was planning to kill off all third-party cookies by the end of 2021, as has already been done by Safari and Firefox. Though it will still retain first-party cookies and, it seems, give its own sites special preference in Chrome.”
"How do I get started contributing to open source? What are some good entry-level tasks to work on?"
These are questions I am often asked, so here's the answer for everyone to read:
Scratch your own itches. Find bugs that are causing you problems, conspicuously missing features you would find useful, and implement them - in literally any free/open-source software you're using. Don't worry about not being familiar with the codebase or programming language or whatever, just solve one problem at a time.
Try this: next time you go to report a bug, report it, and immediately start working on a patch which fixes the problem.
Scratching your own itches is the best source of motivation and maximizes your productivity.
Often that means not contributing to my projects at all, if you're asking how to get started with a specific project. Maybe you like it because it's flawless 😉 (hah!), in which case it wouldn't need your help anyway. Go fix something which is bugging you in another project. Spread the contributor wealth around and eventually it'll come back to my projects, too.
So it's the DuckDuckGo team that's helping Apple block Google Analytics from cross-site tracking. Nice work! 👏

Brave continues to come up with new kinds of sleaze.
Installed Manjaro on a 240GB SSD with
1GiB for EFI SysPart,
200GiB ext4 for /
No fixed Swap partition or file.
I let 'yay' to compile vscode.
System resource utilization was:
> 1/6GB ram
> 0/0GB swap
> 6/6GB ram
> 3/4GB swap
> 1/6GB ram
> 0/0GB swap
Thank you dynamically growing/shrinking swap space.
In theory, dynamic swap can be more gentile on SSD.
I use 'swapspace' package for dynamic swap.
It's about time to finally move all our infrastructure to the #RockPro64 cluster setup! It's been a long time coming. 😊
Expect some downtime for our website, forum, wiki, and IRC in the coming days. Other chat protocols will remain up, but may not be bridged at times. Support and Store sites will be unaffected.
I have backed this printer. 24 hours left on the campaign.

You probably saw this news, but here's why I'm so damn excited about it:
