Sure, sex is good, but have you tried repairing a disposable consumer trinket beyond its planned obsolescence?

"JavaScript growth and third parties" by Steve Souders speedcurve.com/blog/javascript

"JavaScript is the main cause for making websites slow. [Compared to 7 years ago, ] 1st-party JS doubled from 53 KB to 106 KB. 3rd-party JS octupled (!) from 32 KB to 258 KB."

What's most remarkable is that this happened even with the rise of bundlers, which effectively make 3rd-party JS "look" like 1st-party. In other words, that 1st-party growth is probably node_modules; the 3rd-party growth is ads/trackers/???.

Purging media files on my mastodon instance because y'all is shitposting too much. Thanks for the tip, @xvilo

@sjw on second thought, it's probably not for everyone. But I had fun watching it at least.

@sjw a series of genital injuries under suspicious circumstances at a shady New York hotel, lead the police to suspect women and whores are biting off men's genitals. A gay Italian NYPD detective investigates, only to find that there is something far more sinister at play. Can he save the city from a plague of flesh eating condoms while finding love in the process? Find out in KILLER CONDOM.

@trevdev it's surprisingly wholesome, all things considered. A fun watch.

Watch #Google announce a "ContentID for small businesses as a service, so that everyone can comply with Article13". And just like that, not only do they know who from where visits what website, but now also what they upload there.

This could be used in all sorts of ways, in order to build a further profile of you even if you try to avoid Google itself, to blackamil you if you anywhere, ever infringed copyright, to prevent anyone from storing 'leaks' anywhere etc.

Scary times.

Google managed to introduce YET ANOTHER SECURITY HOLE into G+, so they're shutting down the consumer version EVEN FASTER. This tells me that they're unwilling to put effort into software that doesn't make them money, so we should expect to see security holes and surprise shutdowns in everything except Search and Ads.

If you were an adult content artist looking for an alternative to Tumblr, where would you go?

"Tumblr will permanently ban adult content from its platform on December 17th" and immediately lose majority of its visitors and traffic theverge.com/2018/12/3/1812375

2FA: make sure you double check with your partner before they are taken off.

It feels like every application at once decided that I do not have agency as a person and can't be trusted to install the updates myself, and forcing me to keep my hands off my computer for 30 minutes, because it's literally locking up.

This i7-6700k/GTX1080 runs Linux 99% of the time, and performs like a dream. There should be no reason for it to devolve into ass just because everything wants updates as soon as I run it.
