The Mozilla layoff is terrible - not only for the former workers, but also the web at large.

If we are concerned about the future of a more private & secure web, without a monopoly - we might want to double-down on our support of Mozilla to ensure that more people keep their jobs.

Being vocal about the direction of #Firefox & #Mozilla to appropriate channels is surely needed - less Google & more innovation.

Let's work to oust any leadership without the vision we all need for a better web.

We are happy to announce that we have completed the calendar invites feature. 🥳 You can now invite anyone to an event that you created in your encrypted calendar - even people who are not using Tutanota (yet)! 😀

Whatever the reasons are for Firefox's shitty behaviour, it's still no reason to use a chromium-based browser. Please, use anything else.

@nivex @alcinnz I had to set up node.js in puppy linux. 3 days later I was grabbing the bartender by his lapels, yelling “how is this the future? How?!”

This is my old occupation as a cost accountant coming out! I just love calculating things out exactly.

On a more practical side, this one tree should supply enough firewood to keep our two households warm for the next winter.

My 'Rosetta Stone' for estimating the wet and dry densities of this timber is a block of wood I kept aside and measured over time as it dried out. Originally weighing 1554 g it has stabilised at 654 g having lost 900 g or water and going from 767 to 323 kg/ m³

I wrote a short script that downloads YouTube videos from channels I like so I can watch them wherever I want, whenever I want, and with whatever media player I want.

is all about, and it doesn't matter.
Explore the world. Nearly everything

go into it deeply enough.“

Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:

This is our regular shout-out / reminder to use an encrypted password manager!

We love KeePassXC! But any is better than none!

Create passwords that are impossible to remember because they are so strong and unique for every account.

Also store any of your secrets in there, not just passwords.

Use #Nextcloud or another sync tool to keep your password database connected to each of your systems.

Withdrew yet another application for a job today when I was requested to complete a 2 hour test before a call or interview could be had.

Why should a developer spend 2 hours of time in order to get an audience with a prospective employer?

Stand up against these policies.

Reached that part of the year where all the side projects I very enthusiastically started are now half-complete and I feel *saturated*
