🤦 apparently Twitter's "Tip Jar" integration with PayPal has the side effect of sharing the tipper's billing address to the recipient. 🤔

Ah, yes, i remember tipping wait staff in the US and telling them where I live.

Hm… I fear I already damaged three of the battery cells in my Reform by not switching it of properly and letting it run empty accidentally. They show as 0V and it doesn’t charge at all… cc @mntmn

WTF ... Mozilla had always running JavaScript inside PDFs disabled by default.

But now with FF 88 this option is ENABLED by default. Which means, if a PDF file contains JS it will run without any user interaction. What can possibly go wrong?

To disable this:

pdfjs.enableScripting --> false

# FF 78.10 ESR doesn't include this option and still blocks JS in PDFs by default. Just tested.

Great remark by @cj on #SocialHub wrt #ActivityPub vs. #blockchain based #decentralization:

> Apps may demand real-time “global state”, and this is the key tragedy of Blockchain-like decentralized thinking. Trying to have decentralization but also demand global consistency. That is not needed in federation: decentralization, with a window into “the world” and yet acknowledgement there’s more out there that we don’t know. Perhaps a little too philosophical.

Could have saved myself a couple of minutes but had to unscrew the keyboard again because i didn't feed the display and speaker cables through the intended holes but nothing major.

Only two small questions came up but they are answered in the FAQ. (Cable orientation of the battery pack connectors)
