It ought to be obvious that, no matter what information a company may want for its marketing purposes or whatever, it is NOT entitled to that information. "If you want it, pay for it!"

Like, this isn't acceptable when a random third party does it, and it shouldn't be when my WEB BROWSER company does it!!!

Like, I get it Google, you want to know how many people use Firefox or Office or Creative Cloud plus have a best guess at what kind of work people do, but this isn't the way to do it! It's a BROWSER. Let it live as its prime directive. And give people their privacy.

I've known about the Manifest V2/V3 thing for a while and have just kept my fingers crossed that it will end up where it won't really matter and things like uBlock Origin will just keep on trucking, but I found out about the software reporter tool BS today while going through our Carbon Black alerts. E-mailed my boss to ask if we could block it in Google Admin and sadly the answer is no, but it's straight spyware my dudes.

Friendly reminder that if you're like me (and the majority) and still use Chrome, the time to switch is nigh.

- Learned today that software_reporter_tool.exe (which you can thankfully disable in chrome://settings/cleanup) scans literally every file on your computer on a regular basis and sends telemetry data to Google

- In January 2023 they're breaking all Manifest V2 apps which means existing (good) adblockers like uBlock Origin will no longer function


Requesting prayers 

Asking for some really intense prayers for one of my friends. He was in an extremely bad car wreck Saturday morning and has been in a coma since. They don't think he is going to make it. He is 22.

Praying for a miracle

Also I put in the alt text that there was banding in the first image from the camera but it turns out the wall scroll just looks like that when lit from the bottom. Didn't realize till I went back in my room and turned the lamp on and was like "OH that's real"

Articulating lamps -- that's what they're called.

According to the eBay listing it's a LUXO lamp from the 1970s. Heck yeah B)

I got a new desk lamp today from eBay! It's BLUE! (You have no idea how much time I spent looking at these types of lamps)

I also wanted it to be incandescent (which wouldn't be /that/ bad on electricity since I only use my drawing desk occasionally anyway) so I put a 40 watt appliance bulb in it. It's how I'm gonna keep my head warm in the winter.

Throwback to Fall 2019, when I set up a few machines in my office for the university student-run so the students could experience some . (Banana for scale).

One student write Conway's Game of Life in MACRO assembler for RT-11 to run on the FT1-00, and quite a few students did some other playing around.

The first image from the James Webb Space Telescope (#JWST). From NASA,

"This slice of the vast universe covers a patch of sky approximately the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length by someone on the ground."

In that little speck, I don’t know, maybe a thousand galaxies, each with perhaps 100,000,000,000 stars, and all that in a patch of sky too small to even pay attention to.

I'll just warn you now, I don't know how to use a computer
