All I wanted was to round floats to 3 digits, and I found this:
@njoseph_1 I'm actually doing the opposite. Interesting articles are moved from ttrss to wallabag. 😂
@judeswae This thing is really concerning.
I know people are trying to make a fully functional and private internet on top of the existing internet (Tor, MaidSafe, etc.), but this has been a level playing field as the communication channels were owned by telecom companies.
Google captcha anyhow blocks half the internet for users using Tor or blocking cookies. They might stop requests at a packet level with owning the infrastructure.
This just might make a mess out of the entire internet.
@njoseph_1 This was crazy!! Thanks for tooting about this extension.
@njoseph_1 Nice article. Here's something similar, basically talking about how not to spend much time on things you won't use in your career.
"We are told that cars are about freedom of choice. But every aspect of this assault on our lives is assisted by state planning and subsidy. Roads are built to accommodate projected traffic, which then grows to fill the new capacity. Streets are modelled to maximise the flow of cars.

presenting true facts like they're insane conspiracy theories. what if Obama... ISN'T FROM AFRICA AT ALL? what if the GOVERNMENT had a SECRET RESEARCH PROGRAM to reach THE MOON in the 1960s?
The show how 1. any information is more appealing when presented as SECRETS THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW and also 2. a lot of true facts about the world are pretty weird.
The red MSpaint arrows are a nice touch.
Given that I superficially used Java's LSP for Emacs and found it to be pretty interesting for smaller (4-5 files) project, I've high hopes for Rust.
Came to know about it from this post:
@egrasmed @mheiber Not willingly, I guess.
There are plenty of things going against them -- Chrome is a bulldozer and ships too fast, Google is a near monopoly, Mozilla is paid by Google to keep the latter as default search provider, etc.
But FF is the only decent (and mainstream) browser now which isn't Chromium/Blink/Webkit based and runs a decent ad blocking software.
I've tried using niche browsers like Conkeror & Qute but the former is discontinued and both lack blocking ads.

@egrasmed Hoping your question wasn't sarcastic, I'd say Firefox. It's in really good shape right now.
A nifty trick if you have a repo already and fetching a different tree (which has diverged quite a bit) is slow.
Just add the different tree as an upstream and pull.
