Does 's new policies require my consent to be tracked by their creepylinks?

I am not sure if this screenshot from is ironic enough.

I was making my annual visit to, and was surprised to see a Mobile link in the sidebar! Surely there aren't new mobile devices aside from whatever runs Replicant!

But it was just a link to the mobile version of the website... this is disappointing on many levels, first as a person looking for portable, freedom-respecting hardware, and then mostly as a webcrafter. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I get clickable links in because of my terminal, but it doesn't sense a linewrap midway through, and as you well know, folks send ludicrously long URLs in email for whatever reason.

So I started glancing at my .muttrc, see if I can configured something (I thought I was making them clickable...), and realized I had configured a while ago.

urlscan is awesome! It even provides context!

But you should still not send HTML via email. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

I was looking up the word "prophylactic" and the DDG results, for some hilarious reason, picks a random (not the first or prominent heading) section to quote:

> Some men put the prophylactic on just the tip of the penis: this is a mistake, because the prophylactic will come off. (figuratively) ...

It wraps part of the next definition, but also, "literally"! Include "literally"! ๐Ÿ˜

> Want to Support Open Source? Whitelist Your Ad-Blocker.

That's not how open-source, or ad-blockers work!

For reference, this is how I include on my biz card.

Yep, I consider jabber crucial, whereas POTS number is excluded.

This is my room this morning, where our beds normally go (we share our room with our kid) there is instead a plastic sheet from Ikea-something ("provided" to us) laid out, filled with dirty rain water from the roof.

It is supposed to go down to 40 degrees tonight...

I turned off *all* notifications except showing mentions in the timeline. My dopamine levels have dropped substantially! You should try it. ^_^

Oh snap! I didn't know I could customize the web UI for notifications! Now I don't need to find replies amidst favs and boosts!

If you haven't peeked at your preferences lately, take a gander. I found some dope settings that sped up my interface, and actually looks pretty cool!

I *think* this is from previewing a large PDF and closing my laptop, but I can't honestly remember when I launched the Photos app, so it is disturbing that it crashed...
