Do you want to know what developing without unit tests is like?

Honestly, a code review in which the reviewer points problems in the code without any snippet of the suggested solution is no real code review.

Stop making websites that look good in Chrom* and shit everywhere else.

Do you want to see, how people with different interests see their ?

Have a look here:
their.tube/

We need to have a choice of whether we want to have recommendations or not and if yes, of which topics.

The current state is sheer ! This is unacceptable!

"Trump says he will ban TikTok as the app could be used to collect the personal data of Americans"

Ban Facebook and Google too? Their data collection is so much more powerful. Never seen TikTok scripts anywhere while most apps and sites send your personal data to FB and Google.

So now @ASOS@twitter.com only holds items in the bag for 1 hour. This means that all the items I put yesterday and the ones I put 2 hours ago because going through 3000 dresses takes more than one hour are gone.
What kind of shitty experience is that????

Gibt es eigentlich schon einen Verein, der die Interessen von datenschutzsensiblen Eltern, Schüler und Lehrer vertritt, die einfach keine Lust mehr auf die weitere Digital-Verödung der Schulen haben? Microsoft, Google und Co. sind keine keine Lösungen für eine Gesellschaft, die sich (digital) frei entfalten möchte.

Wenn du einen nicht-trivialen PR stellst zu einem Projekt, dann ist die Chance dass du nett empfangen wirst und mit dir auf einer Augenhöhe diskutiert wird höher als bei einem nicht-Rust-Projekt.

#SocialMedia / #Tech giants testifying before Congress is reason enough to make a concerted effort to maintain #privacy via your freedom of choice.

- use more trusted platforms
- decentralize when possible
- develop smaller, more cohesive networks
- elevate your message over their brand
- use platforms that use #encryption
- try platforms that avoid algorithms

@MatejLach @bugaevc The whole reason Android is "open source" is because Google knows you can't use it. Mobile hardware is super proprietary and under NDA, and they've locked down the software market. If PCs and PC software were that locked down, Microsoft could have open sourced Windows and it wouldn't have affected their business at all. What Google is doing now with Android is pretty much indistinguishable from what MS was doing with Windows and PC OEMs that got them slapped by the govt.

This is our regular shout-out / reminder to use an encrypted password manager!

We love KeePassXC! But any is better than none!

Create passwords that are impossible to remember because they are so strong and unique for every account.

keepassxc.org

Also store any of your secrets in there, not just passwords.

Use #Nextcloud or another sync tool to keep your password database connected to each of your systems.

#CSS #Tools
An online tool to help you build CSS animations, you can add, remove stops, change different properties like transform, color. I would avoid animating size, spacing and position, those trigger layout when changed, aka performance issues.

Application intro: "Privacy!"

Application next screen: Create account.

Like, seriously? What about "it's private 'cause you don't connect to any server"?
