General-purpose OS, special-purpose OS, and now: vendor-purpose OS
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.
Law enforcement scoured protestor communications and exaggerated threats to Minneapolis cops, documents from #BlueLeaks show https://theintercept.com/2020/06/26/blueleaks-minneapolis-police-protest-fears/
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.
Munich's flip-flop back to open source is the latest sign of Germany's political sea change over proprietary software. Linux, not Windows: Why Munich is shifting back from Microsoft to open source - again?

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.
@stchris Cool! Thanks, Chris 🦀
@falyanguzov Thanks for the link! 🦀
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.
