*Me checking my notes labeled rant*

* Cookie Banners: ✅
* Misuse of biometrics: ✅
* IOT: ✅
* Forks and Pull Requests: ✅

Why did github invent and promote the principle of forks and pull-requests? Even though the git way is sending patches via git-send-email? I think it is to force people in their ecosystem. Sending patches via git-send-email is totally agnostic to the hosting provider. You do not need an account on there. In order to be able to send a pull request you need an account on the platform the repo is hosted on. We should resist these kind of practices.


Okay, since i talked about it with a friend today:

Please remember that biometrics are never a password. They are a username at best. One key element of a passwort is, that you are able to change it after it got compromised. You can not change your biometrics. Biometrics can be used to quickly establish an identity which then needs to be confirmed by a password or another form of authentication.

Man, the last few days were pretty rough to my mental health. But i have coffee today so that is nice, i guess.

I am really interested in dipping my toes into videomaking. But I think I have nothing interesting to tell/show. ☹️

Please remember: functional cookies (login session, shopping carts) do not need user consent. So every time you see one of this oversized cookie banners someone is trying (often through dark patterns) to make you accept the whole tracking and spying as well. Don't be mad at the legislative for creating the need for tracking consent. Be mad at the websites that are trying to stir you up against that law by annoying you with those banners.

Trying to look up real numbers (called reelle Zahlen in german) on a search engine while not looking at my keyboard.

What i thought i wrote: reelle zahlen
What i actually wrote: reee

My relationship with math i guess...

Participating in an online escape room with my brother and a few friends.

I created a room for the server. Feel free to join me at :matrix.org


Hello fellow people. I would like to open some kind of chat for us all to hang out and write/ maybe talk. Are you all fine with me opening a room for us? @wholesomedonut feel free to open up the room yourself or talk to me to get admin access to said room.

Thanks to @hund i found out about wtwitch. Now i am able to follow my favourite streamers and also delete my twitch account. Please remember to still support your streamers. :)

Am I the only one who thinks that Google revoking the access of google apis in chromium is a good thing? For me it makes chromium usable because I do not have to deactivate every google shit myself. If you want to use the Google ecosystem just use chrome.
