Personally, I don't care that Mastodon isn't grotesquely huge like our centralized counterparts. They may have millions of users, but its worth fuck-all if I can't meaningfully connect with any of them. Divisive, metric-driven algorithms that encourage conflict to generate revenue for shareholders is not MY social media... .

So yesterday I was editing some of my backup scripts at work and I accidentally left an undefined variable in one of them.

i7–3740QM with dGPU heatsink mod.
B140RTN02.1 1600x900 display from an Alienware M14x.

Mozilla has announced that it's rolling out changes under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) to all Firefox users worldwide.

According to report of ZDNet: The CCPA (America's privacy legislation) came into effect on January 1, 2020, offering Californian users data-protection rules. Much like Europe's GDPR, the CCPA gives consumers the right to know what personal information is collected about them and to be able to access it.

I like about mastodon that you can assume most people have a level of technical understanding and are kind

Wondering if there's a sane way of tiling browser tabs in a window. I thought I remember reading about FF adding this feature natively but I don't see it.
