new Patreon Show more
I've just launched my own Patreon. If you'd like to see me do more of the weird things I do, like XCB, Comic Rocket, and Corrode, please share it around. (You can read more about those projects at the Patreon page.)

Apple keeps on disabling uBlock Origin because it will "slow down my web browsing experience."
