wow, this is a new one

if you need my “personal data” to pay your staff then you need to find a more ethical fucking business model

My first boardgames clear out in a long time. Mostly unwanted gifts on the right.

On the left I'm sad to lose Power Grid but it doesn't quite make the cut. Glory to Rome is not a keeper when eBay prices are so high. Chicken Cha Cha Cha is superb but my kids have outgrown it.

Public Domain Day Is Coming: On January 1st, 2019, Copyrighted Works Will Enter the Public Domain for the First Time in 21 Years

When you're browsing on Firefox and you accident open in a new window instead of a new tab.

This is beautiful, but if I was that swimmer, I would have fled for the shore like a torpedo.

I finished Grand Theft Auto V. Characters and writing strong - better than most movies. Trevor is amazing. Why did they make me go through the torture scene?
The world building is *astonishing*. I want to visit Los Angeles.

Installed Bouncer on my Android phone. Surprising how many apps had permissions enabled and how little difference it made to remove them.

Apparently there is a Firefox add-on that can report the cross-browser compatibility of a website, using MDN data:

It is… spookily accurate for Pinafore. I explicitly targeted latest Chrome, Firefox, and Edge, with no support for IE. And I believe Edge 16 is required because I'm using isIntersecting in IntersectionObserver. Pretty impressive if that's how it figured it out!

I played Artifact on my touchscreen 2-in-1 laptop on the train today. Perfect. Time flew by.

Architects of the West Kingdom is a refined worker placement game. Lots of bells and whistles. Lovely art.

Achieving anything in life nowadays is 5% talent, 5% hard work and 90% not being distracted by the Internet.

The older I get, the more grateful I am for Reader View in Firefox. Text too small, contrast not high enough, text column too wide… just slam that little book icon and I can actually read the page.

I don't get to see it often, but I just had to use a browser without an ad-blocker installed. I can't even begin to fathom how people can live without one.

What a horrid, ugly mess the web has become 😫

I saw someone videoing me rowing this morning. They shared it on my club's Facebook. 🌞

AeroPress users Pro Tip

Over time the rubber on the AeroPress plunger will contract slightly. This results in water leaking around the edge of the plunger, rather than being forced through the coffee.

The rubber can be resuscitated by soaking it for a few minutes in a container of boiling water. This procedure can be done almost indefinitely, substantially extending the life of the plunger.
