Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

Wow. I am used to all sorts of nastyness when it comes to infosec - but this is a rare jewel. TP-Link reintroduces the heartbleed vuln: research.nccgroup.com/2020/07/

It. happened. six. years. ago.

Github has an outage for 3+ hours (githubstatus.com/incidents/j59). This might be a good option to consider self-hosting a Git repo.

That doesn't take away the chance that outages might happen, but at the very least the impact will be less... huge.

Dear websites,

These aren't login buttons or registration buttons.

Thanks,

A guy on IRC said that it's a fact that antifa are terrorists then said that antifa is trying to stop fascism with fascism. I then responded by calling him a bootlicker cuck. Was what I said out of line? I'm autistic so I don't often understand whether what I'm saying is appropriate.

I just deep-cleaned my NES. I even did the old trick of boiling the 72-pin connector. Games tend to boot at the first attempt without issue.

I just fixed my desk's keyboard tray. One of the slide rails was stuck, and simply dislodging it with a hammer (or similar) fixed it.
