Cooking corn in the husk is the way to go. 350 degrees for 30 min, directly in the rack. Peel back the husk and use it as a handle. Nom nom nom.

What a bunch of amateurs. Nothing inspires confidence like a hastily-launched stock WordPress site with cert problems and a domain name not even registered to the party promoting it.

#Equifax web tool for checking if you were affected by the #hack is flagged as deceptive in #FireFox, because the terms of use contain an arbitration clause as well. Holy fuck.

So a friend retweeted a post from a lawyer's feed that recommends NOT using the Equifax site to see if yours was one of the identities in their gigantic leak, because your clicking OK on the EULA means you agree not to sue them if something bad happens to you as a result of the leak. More research is required, but since this does sound like the kind of underhanded shit a giant corporation would do, be wary.

I toot a lot more when I stop using birdsite. I am a lot less stressed about life, too. Might have something to do with vacation and hot tubs, but I'm not writing off Mastodon's influence yet.

My five year old is walking around saying: "The password is..." and random stuff.

"The password is Godzilla Resurgence"

"The password is Everyone Fights Wayne"

"The password is Unlock the Door"

It irritates me that there's not much one can do to protect her PII from data breaches suffered by corporations. It's bad enough having to use spam-catching aliases to distribute among well-meaning but uninformed volunteers maintaining local group mailing lists, who don't delete the e-mails when they no longer need them, don't protect against malware and viruses, don't bcc everyone, et cetera.

Is it just me or is Google's swipe detection getting worse, not better?

Huh, every day feels more and more like a really weird SF novel.

I cant stop imagining something like this spreading through radio stations, maybe even slipped into an extremely popular pop song. One of the ones that gets played EVERYWHERE. Maybe even just hidden in samples they used.
