On Switching to Ed: https://atthis.link/blog/2020/usingEd.html
Made big markup changes on my website. Added tags for RSS where appropriate and fixed bad HTML on blog posts. Apologies for downtime.
I improved my RSS feed. It uses HTTPS links now and it includes the full content of new posts, starting with today’s.
I don’t like the new scroll bars in Firefox 100 and derivatives. They make it hard to tell which parts of the page are scrollable.
Big day for privacy. Tails has been updated to 5.0, now based on Debian 11. https://tails.boum.org/news/version_5.0/index.en.html

Why is Startpage “suspending” me at least once a day? Is it my content blocker? I don’t care, I’m switching to Brave Search.
Do you remember?
Check out https://search.marginalia.nu/. It’s a search engine that indexes simple, text-heavy websites.

Let my guard down for just a second reading a blog post and I clicked a link to a Google document by accident. Narrowly avoided loading it.
Tails 4.22 is out. I’m gunning for a 1.0 seed ratio by the end of the day.
By crawling a local copy my website, I found a blog post that still has links in the header to files that haven’t existed for months.
Always exciting to make a new page for the twtxt section of my website. All done by hand, of course.

It’s time for infrared-blocking glasses to become commonplace as facial recognition spreads. I only know of one company selling them.

I’m tired of Mozilla’s shenanigans. This was over the line. I made sure to tell them that in their uninstallation survey.
I restart my PC to update my graphics drivers, and I come back to the terrible looking UI of Firefox 89. I switched to ungoogled-chromium.
I just spelled ‘Koenigsegg’ correctly on the first try entering it into a search engine. Feels good.

Yes, I had to look up terms to describe the issue with my watch. You know, there’s a 1500 word Wikipedia article about buckles.
The tongue of my watch’s buckle has gone to the wrong side of the frame, and I don’t know how. A good excuse to finally get a NATO strap.

On the subject of Mountain Dew, I’m still mad about the discontinuation of Black Label. Black Label was the best flavor, change my mind.
DEW-S-A IS BACK! I need to get my hands on Code Red, White Out, and Voltage to see if DEW-S-A really is a mix of the 3.
