If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.

When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.

"Microsoft pain machine". Pretty much.

Problems we are having with #Signal:
* It is and will remain centralized (clear strategy of *not* federating servers)
* It requires strong identifiers/selectors (phone#) to use
* Author disallows distribution by anyone but Google, although free/libre
* It keeps pushing away verification of fingerprint in interface
* It relies on Google+Amazon infrastructure
* Its funding is shady (OTF = Radio Free Asia = USG)

= clearly unethical choices, unjustifiable by accessibility or technological reasons.

I know this is uselessly meta, but I’m very happy to have an open portable alternative to the “please sell your soul to a corporation to do anything useful” bird-site.

Current location search for Hacker Beach #7 (January 2019) has everyone excited about Uruguay. If anyone has suggestions for particular coastal villages or towns there, we're all ears!

Been giving some thought to bikepacking around given a free week. bikepacking.com is a great resource.

A dangerously fun time at the Upper Bucket. Geuze.

So this is odd. Using firefox nightly with multiple profiles running. In one instance the updater ran and restarted. The other instance...?

Had my first SATA SSD die. It's also new enough to claim warranty!
