@kai but only if you’re a truck that’s half an inch taller than the clearance height.

The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.

Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.

Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.

Starting my road trip to Barcelona tomorrow! I'm driving to Stuttgart first and meeting a friend there. Then the next day we'll go together to Barcelona. Should be fun.

Expect pictures!

You know that trope, of aliens or robots looking at human culture, and only grasping the more literal facts of it and thus fundamentally misunderstanding it for comedic effect?

That is Jack Dorsey, looking at Twitter, every single day since he created it.

Also, is there a more badass name than Threadripper??? It’s sad that those models are completely out of my budget.

I’ve kinda decided to go Ryzen for my next desktop build. I already have an AMD graphics card, so umm... I guess I’m an AMD boy now.

@gudenau I guess it’s because they’re usually as cheap as possible

I'm absolutely heartbroken to see Notre-Dame on fire. This is a loss for the entire world.

Just to give some perspective: that building is older than the US by *several centuries* – it is older than the Incan empire and Machu Picchu.

this survey is titled "consumer behavior"

this question is

"Jot down, as specifically as you can, what you think will happen to you as you physically die and once you are physically dead."

wow

what the fuck

So, a new TLD that is launching soon is `.ooo`

I don’t know what that’s supposed to mean (out of office, maybe)? I just know that I’ll always, 100% of the time, read it as β€œwebsite dot oooooh”

Mastonaut now supports receiving dragged images from the new screenshot tool in macOS Mojave (you can drag the hovering screenshot images into the composer window).

Debugging drag-and-drop operations in macOS is very hard, because it locks focus into the app receiving the drag, which means Xcode can’t activate when it hits a breakpoint. At some point the operation times-out and Xcode activates, but then the drag operation has become invalid. πŸ˜…
