Mild Rage at Youtube media critics 

Everyone and their granny is feeling compelled to review RRR. Most of them don't really have anything to say. I feel like this is just a way to generate views from the popularity of the movie.
I am happy to see Indian movies get some attention outside India. But I also hate what ad-based revenue models have done to nice things like media analysis ๐Ÿ˜ข

QR codes (or any such codes) should come with plain language explanation of what all information is encoded in them and how to decode it, so it can be verified. I don't even know what I am scanning or showing to other people. It feels like there too much trust in these magic signs printed on our tickets, scooters, UPI payment codes, etc.

It would also make people aware of what information they are posting online when they post a picture of their ticket.

Sometimes the internet is really funny - or scary.

The Chrome browser is one example.

While you believe you are browsing the web, Google is browsing you instead.

We all know the third R of the three Rs, RECYCLE. But don't forget the first two and more important Rs.

REDUCE............corporations to rubble.
REUSE............the resources they've been greedily hoarding for profit.

Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gave it to humans who achieved so much with it.

This made the gods extremely angry because they were in the middle of trying to rent fire to humans with restrictive DRM.

In JSON-LD, why is the @version key in a context definition supposed to be a number with value 1.1? Sounds a bit sad that I have to compare the version number approximately ๐Ÿ™„

First-ever Gitea pull request from a remote instance!!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿฅณ

git.exozy.me/Ta180m/Hello-worl

I've been waiting for this moment for months now!

The code hasn't been pushed to gitea.com/Ta180m/gitea yet since it's incredibly messy, but I'll clean it up tomorrow and also submit a draft pull request to upstream Gitea.

(Technical implementation information: gitea.com/Ta180m/gitea/issues/)

This was very hard, took many attempts, sometimes people got too unhappy and killed me, sometimes the parliament kicked me out. I guess I should've read the book before ๐Ÿ˜…
