Microsoft admits that its platform is inherently insecure, so it has to use Linux.

Does anyone use a read later addon for other than Pocket? Which one(s) do you like?

Interesting thought experiment: Next time you have to buy something, picture yourself using/consuming that thing. Really picture that in your head 'til the end. Use the joy/disdain from that picturing as the reason to buy or not buy that. Buy the experience, not the thing.

Try doing that for a week or two, and see if you change your purchasing habits.

Have you tried Pale Moon Browser?
No?
You should.

Especially if you enjoy lightweight and efficient software.

Man, the more I use Linux the more I love and appreciate it.
What a beautiful piece of software.

I'm working in a lab in the university and I'd like to convince my boss to adopt a project management system. Right now, e-mail is the only tool we use.

Basecamp looks nice. Are universities getting this for free? Any better alternatives?

I played violent video games since I was a little kid. Mortal Kombat, Carmageddon, GTA, Blood, Soldier of Fortune - you name it, I played it.

Never felt aggressive after doing that, don't ban violent video games.

Ban #javascript, one evening of it and I want to do unspeakable things to people.

Happy Birthday Maynard James Keenan. I love your work, please make more music.

This makes me angry:

I run my own mail server in a VPS. Its IP address is NOT blacklisted, and I have both SPF and DKIM properly configured. I do NOT send bulk mail.

But still, Gmail classifies my personal emails as SPAM.

Same email with same exactly same contents, sent through PoBox SMTP server goes to INBOX. Directly from VPS, goes to SPAM. No explanations, no public blacklist. It looks like they just don't want people going "indie". Sigh.

Plans for #Tusky 1.7: Mostly internal refactorings and improving the features we already have, no big new stuff.

Dark theming was cool, and a thing, before Win 10 came out and "revolutionised" the world with profound user customisation capabilities.
