Oh... So because I chose the version of that doesn't come with Windows Media Player bundled, I'm not able to install my VPN client. Thanks, Microsoft!

Currently going through the joyful experience of installing 11 – the most recent version of the most popular desktop operating system in the world.

I'm required to provide answers to some security questions, but they didn't manage to construct an interface that allows me to read the full questions that I'm trying to answer. What a brilliant achievement.

I've taken a lot of screenshots recently.

just released an upgrade from 10 to 11 for their 3/3+ models yay! Unfortunately, the new version has put a "screenshot" button in the exact location that for years has been my safe space for tapping, when I want to go from the open apps list to the home screen.

i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

Annie Lennox of Eurythmics with a Tandy 200, and Dave Stewart laying with his head on her lap.

So I looked up what's up with LA's constant police helicopters. It's part of a "predictive" preventative crime initiative. Where they monitor is decided by Palantir algorithms.

And who runs Palantir? Peter Thiel. knock-la.com/lapd-helicopter-s

carbon emissions, and humans utterly failing at reducing them

So the IETF, the people who handle internet standards and stuff, are thinking about how to offset the carbon emissions from people flying to their meetings.

It'd be really neat if the *Internet* Engineering Task Force had some sort of thing to communicate without flying to other places. Like, a global communication network of some sort. Someone should go build that.

I have used up all my data plan for this month, so my speed is capped at 64 Kbps.

This is a friendly reminder to all web developers: Keep your bundle sizes small, only ship what you need, compress your images, YOU DON'T NEED REACT IN YOUR F-ING BLOG, test your sites on slow connections and slow phones.

You using a Galaxy S22 Ultra with an unlimited 5G plan doesn't mean everyone else does too.

Krigsforbryderen AFR er i P1 Morgen, og jeg har endelig fundet noget vi er enige om: Hvordan oste skal skæres.

Derudover efterlyser han et oprør fra ungdommen. Og selvom det isoleret set er prisværdigt, kunne det være han skulle kigge ud ad vinduet før han udtaler sig om den slags. Måske endda joine Carsten Jensen i de unges oprør eller få sine politikerkollegaer til at tage dem seriøst.

Jeg kender til Rasmus Lindroths TUI client tut med Vim keybindings og Alex Schroeders bitlee-plugin til at danne bro mellem Mastodon og IRC.
