wow, the spam bots are hitting github pretty hard
just on the first page of my notifications, there are a total of 121 accounts starring a repository I haven't touched since 2007
of the ~10 accounts I sampled, they were all created in the past couple days and had one or zero contributions listed; none of them have avatars
what's going on here? someone's running a "pay in exchange for stars" scam and they're hitting my repo to spread out the pattern and make it look more random?
Big deal: Github just made private repos free—previously you needed to pay them $5/month. https://t.co/jsRErXQkSi

occasionally, clicking through yet another half-arsed GDPR-mandated cookie management screen, i find myself thinking "the GDPR has buggered up the web"
then i catch myself.
no, it hasn't. the way companies have opted to respond to the GDPR is what's buggered up the web. they could have been nice and unobtrusive about it, but no, they decided that *every user in the EU* should suffer their protests at not being able to stow thousands of fragments of random shite on a whim all over their vict- sorry, users' computers.
