Hello, good afternoon, yes, sorry for the bother, but...

Someone needs to make this, please? So that I might give them all the money.

WTF ... Mozilla had always running JavaScript inside PDFs disabled by default.

But now with FF 88 this option is ENABLED by default. Which means, if a PDF file contains JS it will run without any user interaction. What can possibly go wrong?

To disable this:

pdfjs.enableScripting --> false

# FF 78.10 ESR doesn't include this option and still blocks JS in PDFs by default. Just tested.

Last time I didn't finish this great book - "The Linux Command Line", and then I went offline for more than half a year.

It turns out that the second edition came out and has already been translated into Russian!

I'm definitely going to finish this book this time.

If English is your native language (or a good level to read technical literature) - you are in luck, you can download this book for free:

Remember, as you gaze up at the beautiful night sky, that you are not beneath the stars. You are among them.

@aral found this #smalltech exemplar via HN where it is described as:

"I'm struggling to put my shock into words. I've been around. There's engineering. There's academia. But this falls into straight-up wizardry."

"Everything she does has this level of jaw-dropping amazingness."

Sometimes the mere process of writing out a cw is enough to make me go "huh. Maybe this joke doesn't need telling."

Relatedly, here's an easy bookmarklet to help you dodge paywalls:

javascript:location.href='https ://web.archive.org/web/*/'+location.href;

Create a new bookmark on your browser toolbar, and paste that as the url. remove space after https.

Friday fun at work:

Boss: I didn't know you'd been a heavy mechanic?
Me: Huh?
Boss: This line in your bio, "Familiar with the undercarriages of most large passenger vehicles"
Me: That's code for "I'm used to being thrown under the bus."

Wasn't expecting him to laugh.

So today is groundhog day?
Does that mean tomorrow will not be groundhog day??
