Urgent help request, relocation (boosts+) 

Does anyone on Snouts live in or around the Central Florida area and have space for someone to stay for the forseeable future? I'm in very dangerous living conditions and I desperately need out. I need to transport a rather hefty load of things from my current location so a car/truck would need to be provided.

I'm taking @sir 's advice and switching from Protonmail to Migadu.

I was a paying customer of Protonmail but they've dropped the ball in many places. SMTP/IMAP support was the first (and the bridge was only for paying customers until recently!), no scheduled messages the second, and realizing the broken security model (even before Drew's post) the third, and I'm sure others could list other reasons.

While I don't think Protonmail is spying on emails, their system is broken.

Kind of far-fetched, but hey: years ago I saw a web page which was plain HTML (ie. without CSS), and step by step it was turned into something beautiful and readable with a few CSS rules (adding margins, increasing font size, that kind of basic typography stuff). I seem to recall it was meant to teach both basic CSS and basic typography.

Does anyone have a link or remember anything about the title or the author, so I can find it? I just find random CSS tutorials.

Boosts welcome/encouraged!

asking for help, covid, boosts ok 

Hey y’all, I have exactly 10 dollars to my name and because no rent cancellation has been passed I‘ve already had to spend the stimulus money on rent and bills. We need help again, I’m sorry to ask. I’ve been trying to find work that isn’t Uber or Lyft as my partner is immunocompromised, but after 40 applications there has been no callback or leads. Please help us.

Yelp, Grubhub, Swearing 

Apparently Yelp is replacing the delivery numbers of restaurants with number that go through Grubhub:

For those playing along at home Yelp owns Grubhub, so that's not remotely shady at all. Nosiree.

Fuck Yelp and their Internet Racketeering bullshit.

Ohio launched a website where employers can report workers who refuse to work during the coronavirus pandemic.

So this hacker made a script that fills the website with junk data in an attempt to make it useless.

And while I still have media on my mind, here's a friendly reminder that if you post images to your timeline, give them descriptions. Blind people like myself really appreciate them. One really awesome thing about the fediverse is that in my experience most people actually do this, which is just amazing.
