Well, there's something you don't hear every day. In a despeate attempt to slow my rapid decent into depressive madness, my partner has told me "please go and look at porn". Yes darling, whatever you say.

On a budget this holiday season? You can have a Star Wars viewing party of your own by going outside on a clear night, picking two stars, and declaring they're at war.

"Fuck 'em up," you might whisper to your preferred star, quietly, so as not to annoy your neighbors.

This is not fine: #ClimateChange is here but leaders continue to ignore the #science

In July, the Earth sweltered through its hottest month on record. The #Amazon roasted in August, with more than 80,000 fires reported in #Brazil alone. #California was ablaze in November, cutting power and forcing residents to flee their homes. The #Arctic burned. #Australia suffered through unprecedented bushfires. The record books are being constantly updated.

emulation is one of the coolest things to me. not just simply because I think it's fun to play the old games, but because of how people work together to crack these problems and create impressive feats

1x1 of what #webdev's should not do, but even Steam does it: UA sniffing.

They block #Firefox. (actually only allow #Chrome/#Chromium) For no reason.

If you try to reproduce it, it works, because Firefox shipped with a crazy workaround and spoofs the #UA. See github.com/webcompat/web-bugs/.

Anyway, that this steps have to be taken tells how bad a #browser #monopoly is. #Steam is only one incident.
Look at about:compat to see more workarounds.

"A distinction must be made between advertising and "adtech" - digital analysis and advertising software. Traditional advertising was about building a brand. It used to be like this: if you read a newspaper, the newspaper didn't read you either. If you watched TV, the TV didn't see you either. The Internet has changed that. If you watch a video on Youtube today, Youtube will be watching you. Surveillance is at the heart of the business model. I call it "people farming"." - @aral
