microblogging is made up of two parts "micro", meaning small, and "blogging", short for "weblogging", which is made up of two parts "web", meaning that thing that spiders make, and "logging" meaning cutting down trees

so microblogging is when you're a spider that cuts down small trees

occasionally, clicking through yet another half-arsed GDPR-mandated cookie management screen, i find myself thinking "the GDPR has buggered up the web"

then i catch myself.

no, it hasn't. the way companies have opted to respond to the GDPR is what's buggered up the web. they could have been nice and unobtrusive about it, but no, they decided that *every user in the EU* should suffer their protests at not being able to stow thousands of fragments of random shite on a whim all over their vict- sorry, users' computers.

underreported feature of the touch bar MBPs: they make the same sound as an iPhone/iPad when plugged in

(or is that just Mojave and I never noticed because I mute my laptops a lot?)

Doom was released 25 years ago today. It was about 2.39 MB, the size of an average webpage today. News sites average closer to 8 MB.

Please shotgun the javascript demons and make more efficient & accessible websites.

Anyone have a clue what this list is sorted by?

It's obviously not English name.

It's not The German country names (this is Lufthansa's website) either, because that should put Denmark ("Dänemark") before Germany ("Deutschland") and Algeria somewhere else entirely.

Same for each country's name in its native language, or locale codes (de, da etc.)

I'm at a loss here.

Just a friendly #InfoSec reminder; if you find a #lost #USB #drive, the best thing to do is #destroy it. At worst you have protected some unfortunate soul's privacy. At best you have prevented the spread of a potentially malicious trojan.

why is it that I can dig a 20 year old Windows 95 laptop out of a closet and use it immediately, but a Windows 10 PC that has been shut down for more than two weeks takes the entire weekend thrashing its HDD, "installing updates", before it's usable again?
