Holiday gift culture 

I wish it was socially acceptable to decline getting gifts if you don't need or want anything. I have family hounding me for ideas of things they can get me for Christmas. There is not much I need or want and I would rather get nothing than take part in wasteful consumerism.

I feel like I'm about 10 years behind on this technology, but my first 3D printer arrived today, a Prusa Mini! :) Here's a thread with a few observations while I assemble it and try it out!

There's a new "experimental feature" being tested in Firefox 83: sponsored sites in the URL bar.

"Mozilla works with advertising partners to place sponsored tiles on the Firefox home page (or New Tab) that would be useful to Firefox users. Mozilla is paid when users click on sponsored tiles."

support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/s

You can disable this by setting `browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.showSponsoredTopSites` to `false`.

Dear fediverse friends. What do you use to self-host music? I've tried Plex but it requires a subscription to offline sync on mobile (I don't mind paying for a mobile app, but a subscription is a no-no).

Shameless plug:

Red Hat's big annual tech conference went virtual this year (thanks COVID-19). But also, the two day virtual event is free to attend now!

If you're interested in checking out all of the amazing content from Red Hat Summit for $0, learn more about it and register here:

Full disclosure: I'm a Red Hatter and my team has built a pretty incredible Kubernetes + Kafka + Knative + Tensorflow + Ceph demo for this event. I am super proud of their hard work!

Just finished (died) a Virtual Zombicide game with some friends using Tabletop Simulator. It was as fun as playing the game in person and the game itself is very well made. Totally recommended!

A friend's instagram account apparently got hacked, and their username, email and password changed.

Has anyone experienced this before? According to Instagram, the old email account should have received an email about that name/email change, which didn't seem to happen.

I can't make sense of how they managed to hack that account. Any pointers appreciated!

[Thanks for Boosting]
