i found some IRL tracking cookies today.
that's a Intel RealSense 435 camera (can't tell if the version with i or not, intelrealsense.com/stereo-dept)

further on the right there was a camera info sign, but so small that you only can see it when the camera sees you.

i shit you not

OH: ich wollte eigentlich eine Umfrage machen ob BahnCard 100 oder Klimaanlage kaufen, aber dann ist mir aufgefallen, dass Züge ja eine Klima haben und man ja auch darin wohnen kann.

I've just found out that @sylvia_ritter and Paniq from Farbrausch are a family, and they actually worked on some of the demos together (like Masagin, which is one of my all-time favorites, 2D demos rule)

Which is.., Dang, how awesome is that. How the hell did I not know that?

Also Telekom LTE Router sind der letzter Dreck! Blockieren alles meine VoIP Accounts und sogar Telefonie über gewisse Messenger. Das ist soooo Land! #SebisVacationNote

Ich habe soeben die Nachricht erhalten, dass die Sticker von meinem letzten Motiv angekommen sind. Ich freue mich so sehr auf den Feierabend 😊

Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:

I've noticed a recent linguistic shift in some young people, referring to websites as "apps". Reddit is an "app". The college website is an "app". "Which app did you see that on?"

I don't know if this is just shorthand (they likely access sites through an app) or a genuine misunderstanding of what's going on.

I don't want to be dramatic, but I'd lying if I said it didn't concern me a little. The WWW is a great resource which is free and interoperable. (Well we're down to just 2 browser engines now, but that's another matter). It'd be a shame if the WWW withered away, replaced by "apps", because people didn't know what they had.

Der Tag beginnt mit der Erkenntnis, dass Passwörter, die aus 6 Ziffern bestehen, unsicher sind und in kurzer Zeit durchprobiert werden können.
Bahnbrechende Erkenntnis, zumindest für Zoom.

Nicht alle Hexen fliegen auf einen Besen. Viele sind in der Raumfahrt tätig und bevorzugen von daher lieber Raketen. Mit einer Fairydust fliegt es sich auch gemütlicher 😉

EU-Regulation gegen sichere Verschlüsselung angekündigt - fm4.orf.at/stories/3005421/ #rr

Stop Bad Laws Before They Start

Right now, there’s a proposal to essentially prevent you from flashing your own firmware/software to any product with a radio in it before the European Commission. This obviously matters to Europeans, but because manufacturers often build hardware to the strictest global requirements, it may impact everyone. What counts as radio equipment? Everything from WiFi routers to wearables, #SDR dongles to shortwave #radio.

Unfortunately, someone from Russia (Alexey Knyazev) is selling my art as wooden puzzles. First, he sold my Wakeful Wolf without my consent.

I told him to stop selling my art and reported this illegal product everywhere I could. Today I saw that he started selling two other artworks of mine as a puzzle under a different company name.

Please don't purchase any puzzles from "woddopuzzles".
instagram.com/woddopuzzles/ or "Alexey Art".

Did you know that #GDPR allows sites not to announce the use of "essential" cookies? Meaning those your site uses for itself, to keep the user logged in for example.

So when Internet commerce started to slap those stupid "we use cookies" banners on every site they used the more generic word "cookies" to avoid saying outright that their sites use *ad trackers*.

Long story short, if you don't sell your user data, you don't have to present stupid disclaimers.

Mal schauen, wie viele Netzwerke ich dadurch zerstören kann, dass mein /etc/hostname nen Emoji ist.

Ich So: Hmh, das ist grad bisschen suboptimal.
Die Realität: *Ich, sitzend auf einem Stuhl vorm PC, am PC Twitter und Mastodon offen, browse am Handy. Im Hintergrund sieht man, wie ein Haufen Elektronik aufm Boden brennt und daneben aus nem lange vergessenen Biologieexperiment Schimmel hervorwächst, welcher sich eigenartig bewegt. Ein Wecker klingelt alle 15 Sekunden. Aus dem Fenster ist eine brennende AKW-Ruine zu sehen. Ein Haufen Hausaufgaben (und wenn ich mal alleine lebe vermutlich Abmahnungen) liegt teils aufm Tisch, teils in der brennenden Elektronik. Ein Datenbildschirm an der Wand zeigt "SSL-Zertifikat abgelaufen" an. Etwas Lava tröpfelt von der Decke, am Boden darunter ist etwas zu sehen, was wie ein explodierter Schmelzofen aussieht. Ein Wecker klingelt.*

"Excuse me, I am a time traveler but my machine malfunctioned, so I'm not sure when I am."
"It's 2020."
"Which year of 2020?"
"What do you mean?"
"Ah, so this must be the first year of 2020."
"Oh. Damn."
