...ok, so I used gThumb.
Also, in a similar vein: Youtube-Ad for an adblocker subscription (don't pay for that shit).
I'm totally spoiled by using adblockers everywhere, but opened YT in a bare Chromium window to see how much memory it eats.
We have an old floor lamp with a capacitive touch dimmer that works fine with classic light bulbs, but I haven't yet been able to find a replacement that uses less power. Halogen sometimes works, but most bulbs flicker at some of the settings, and they also die quickly. Same with filament LEDs, regardless of make.
Have been thinking of disassembling the lamp and try to disconnect the dimmer circuit - out of ideas otherwise.
Dear Silicon Valley,
You don’t “have a trust problem.”
You’re just not trustworthy.
A few moments ago, I misread the headline of a marketing e-mail as "Instant Ransomware Delivery" (it's from Zerto, a company that builds disaster recovery software for virtualized environments, and actually said "Instant Ransomware Recovery" )...
Made me imagine the fun we would have with a supply-chain attack on someone like Veeam or Zerto.
Aaaaaahhh! Apparently the paper bags for my old vacuum cleaner are out of production (used to be Swirl S54 or compatible). I noticed I only have one left and went looking for supplies.
Now to find out if anyone still makes something compatible, or if there's some other type that can be adapted to fit the fabric bag inside.
Well, ok, maybe it's time to get a new vaccum, I noticed the plastic is quite brittle in places and cracks easily.
#np: Lightning Dust - devoted to (KEXP)
Some time ago, KEXP uploaded a session with Black Mountain that made me wonder what had happened to Amber Webber (who did not sing on that), and they answered by now having Lightning Dust.
...and I'm /still/ trying to remember who her voice reminds me of - my aunt used to have a reel tape copy of some 60s psychedelic rock record with a singer that used a quite similar vibrato in her voice... I just have no idea.
Thanks to the generous help of the previous owner of the mastodon username on GitHub, our GitHub organization has finally been renamed to mastodon! 🎉
I know that changing the repository URL is a bother but I think it’s worth it and better done sooner than later. Tootsuite was not serious and had no connection to our actual name.
