@drwho I see http as a fundamentally pull protocol, not a push one. If I'm visiting a website in a client that doesn't support images, I'm not blocking images, I'm simply not requesting them, same with all the tracking garbage. It's a misnomer to call it "blocking", I'm just not asking for them. To pretend that that's some kind of hackery and breaking the website, is disingenuous at best, as there's nothing in the way that the web works that requires websites to be packaged in a certain way.

Liebe Leute,
vor einer Zeit hatten wir hier mal nen Thread, da ging es um Spiele für Kinder, in denen es nicht ums Gewinnen sondern um Kooperation geht. Ich habe mir den Link damals natürlich nicht gespeichert 😒
Erinnert sich noch wer? Danke!

Every forthcoming article about Jonny Ive’s design genius and legacy should be required by law to include this photo

Mac SE/30 online via Cayman Gatorbox als MacIP-Gateway mit LocalTalk-Ethernet-Bridge. Quid Pro Quo als Webserver.

Dank an alle Beteiligten für die seelische Unterstützung. „Eigentlich“ ging es ja von Anfang an.

Here's Paul Baran's RAND-published September 1962 justification for distributed communications networks summed up in a single chart. It's also the same paper where the famous "centralized vs decentralized vs distributed" triptych of graphs comes from. You still see this exact diagram, uncited, in modern presentations on the decentralized/distributed web.

For once, I would love to hear the CEO say: “We managed to do all this while everyone got enough sleep and spent time with their families.” #welcometoapple

Jetzt gibt es das iPhone länger, als es 68k-Macs gab.

A photo management software that

- keeps metadata in IPTC fields or JPEG comment
- doesn't alter file creation time when editing said data
- some GUI for browsing and selecting photos
- functions for mass-editing ("add this to all pictures in that folder" or "...to selected photos")
- maybe some external metadata index to speed up search (but file metadata is primary info source)
- runs on MS Windows (Linux and OSX optional)
- don't mind if it costs money, as long as it's not a subscription

Carsten Fulde has submitted new Forth Benchmark results for the ever going "Ultimate Benchmark" project:

Gibt es eigentlich irgendwo eine Liste aller Domains, die zu Springer, Bertelsmann & Co (den Treibern hinter ) gehören? Gern in einer Form, die sich in Unbound und uBlock Origin einbinden lässt.

i don't think "millions of people use 123456 as their password" means people are stupid. i think it means they don't care about most websites, and don't agree with the idea that they have to create a new account every time they want to look at a picture they found through a search engine (for example)

I’m a big fan of @ringel@twitter.com’s 15 minute rule: when you get stuck, spend 15 minutes documenting what you know, what you need to know, and use that to ask for help.
Sometimes, at minute 14, you answer your own question. But if not, your question is clear. twitter.com/TheAmyCode/status/

there's this thing a lot of recent cars have, where the windows are too narrow and high up, and it looks like someone hitching their pants up to their navel
