#Google starts to lock out non-official Chrome builds like #Chromium. The #web is a cricual infrastructure these days and as such we need independent browsers and rendering engines!

If you care about the free and open web you shouldn't use Chrome based browsers.

Meanwhile the co-founder of Wikipedia is convinced the mob storming the Capitol today was actually Antifa

À Poznań, une ville de l'ouest de la Pologne
huit palourdes décident si les habitants de la ville reçoivent de l'eau ou non

Si les eaux sont propres, ces moules restent ouvertes et heureuses. Mais lorsque la qualité de l'eau baisse trop, ils ferment et arrêtent l'approvisionnement en eau de millions de personnes qui les accompagnent.

Handy script maybe...


Use dmenu (or rofi) to search/play Youtube videos.

You'll need to give it a youtube API key (which I get via `pass` on line 9).

Instructions as to how to get an API key here: slickremix.com/docs/get-api-ke

mastodon tips to new users 

— remember to take a look at users' bios before following. some ask you not follow unless you've interacted with you before, some appreciate an introductory dm, others do not want to be dm'd by people they don't know, etc
— it's considered good form to cw contentious topics, such as ikea furniture or italians
— the person your mum or aunt is suddenly making long phonecalls to is probably flowless. don't worry about it
— try not to freak out about the giant centipedes. they're mostly harmless
— sometimes during new moon, a green man with three arms will knock on your door and ask for your first-born child. this is der gründreiarmigmann, a german goblin eugen made a deal with early in mastodon's development. just hand him a rock or a seed wrapped in cloth instead
