December is not one of my better months.
If you want to see how industry lobbying works... a before lobbying and after lobbying side-by-side on proposed EC environmental measures to make home appliances more repairable and longer lasting.
If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on https://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.
"Welcome to Magic School. Here is your schedule."

c) you can transfer who you follow, etc, easily.

So, we homeschool are children (well, they're almost-7 and 2.5, so really just one ;) ).
We are investigating various online curriculum options out there (we get some money from the state to purchase such things, mostly spent on robot kits and a nature school so far).
Many, maybe obviously, only run on Mac or Windows for reasons I can't fully determine without signing up first.
Thus, I'm looking to buy a Windows laptop...
Tips to make this go as well as it can?
#TIL that one can exit from #Vim with :cq to return an error to the parent process. Which is basically just perfect to cancel a Git commit or something other similar situations in which an editor is spawned to edit something before continuing. My mnemonic device for remembering about :cq will be “cancel quit”
Chanukah starts on Sunday‽ That’s so early!
For real, though. December 2 is earlier than 80% of Chanukahs. My latest side project: https://isyontefearlythisyear.com

social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
