Some Google employees made a website. I would summarize their three objections as follows:

1) helping out border patrol and immigration with data
2) helping the fossil fuel industry with machine learning
3) doing (and publicly asking for more) mercenary work

I think these are also valid reasons to leave Google as a customer.

What do you peeps use for music on the go?
Boosts ok and wanted.

What's a simple combat formula for RPG combat? I'm building a web-based game as a kata, and don't want to over think this part. ^_^

Our friend is going on a trip to Southern Italy, and asked Clover to research and find out what would make a good souvenir.

This very missive is part of that research! You are practically a research assistant! Yay homeschool!

What make good souvenirs from Southern Italy? ^_^

I remember the excellently supportive @trashheap saying how glad he was that @libreture wasn't tied to a particular bookshop or device.

That's still the case.

Where Libreture's concerned, I'll use Scarlet Ferret to demonstrate how other e-bookshops can integrate with Libreture using the available free tools. Things like the 'Add to Libreture' button, and later, the e-mail to Libreture feature.

No limiting, tied-in vertical integration here!

I just spelled "elicited" correctly the first time, and had to spellcheck it a couple times before I was convinced it was correct...

Since 0.24 I haven't been able to configure autopickup for javelins, boomerangs and darts. Anyone got a config with those options set? ^_^

The end of 2019/start of 2020 is going to be synonymous with my CD collection being shredded. Ive mulled on it a bit and I decided against paying the ransom fee. Lesson learned.

Over the last decade, every single one of us here took major steps in taking back control of our presence online and building the spaces we want to see in the world, so don't forget to give yourselves credit for that, because it's a really nice thing to see and it hasn't been easy.

And finally, one of the biggest things in my career this last year was my transition from a normal old investigative journalist/security engineer to becoming the Director of Information Security for FLM! Look out for some exciting open source security projects coming next year

I have a family member setup with Firefox with ublock origin etc. They don't have any issues traveling the web. But they run Windows. This morning they somehow launched Edge, visit a National Geographic best of 2019 photos page, and something on that page took 'em to one of those security scam pages that pops up a modal dialog that locks the whole browser UI with scary warnings and a toll free number. That was just seconds with an inferior browser. How are people able to use the web these days?
