Firefox became so bloated, we can't ship it anymore for i386 architecture on OpenBSD because we just can't compile it
i386 can't allocate a lot of memory to a single process, and during the compilation we hit this limit.
Goodbye Firefox on i386, you used to work fine but you didn't made exercises to lose some fat as people suggested to you, you are a bit more isolated now.
Get off Facebook. Get off every Facebook service. Block Facebook. Don't work for Facebook. Don't provide services to Facebook. Find every way you can to get them out of your life and support others in doing the same.
They are ethically indefensible.
Apparently, Facebook's DNS info getting wiped is what took down their website, and it didn't just take down their website, but crashed their entire corporate HQ, because things like door card verification and logins, because those services were routed over the Internet instead of a corporate Intranet.
This is a great example of why I think electronic access control is a stupid idea.
Getting locked out of my house because SmartLock Inc forgot to renew their domain doesn't seem so far outside the realm of possibility.

We've had a lot of low-hanging fruit that's very easy to deal with (such as 'macOS menu bar says "Audacity"': https://github.com/tenacityteam/tenacity/issues/618), but we are stretched very thin and are dealing with bigger problems.
I get that contributing to an audio editor is very intimidating. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in joining a team that would deal with such issues.
I should really explain the things I did in order to organize the @tenacity project someday after I woke up seeing that someone else had given me and another person the helm of a burning ship in greater detail at some point.
I explained some of the things I did with the help of others in great detail here: https://github.com/tenacityteam/tenacity/issues/121
