I just responded to a prolog/datalog thread with "I want to say 'Bob's your uncle' here, but it looks like Bob might be your grandparent?"

I crack me up.

I've moved countries but I can't update my Google Play settings to reflect the new country without deleting my child's whole Google account, thereby losing all purchases and everything he's ever done in his games.

I cannot download regional bank and online shopping apps on my Google account because I have a child younger than 13 on my family account, unless I opt to delete his account.

Absolutely idiotic.

Dear developers, what if I don't want an "alternative characters key" at all?

Perhaps one of our most important blog post’s ever. A long and important read about how the foundations of democracy, with inalienable rights and freedoms, has been replaced by “control and surveillance”. Or as we call it; (L)awful interception. mullvad.net/blog/2021/4/22/law

Recently I released my old #utility I personally was using for last few years called “place-cursor-at” written in #Haskell (built on top of #X11 #Xlib). It helps to move your mouse cursor around your screens to specific approximate positions. Generally it helps to use the keyboard more and less the mouse.

It was released on #Hackage and #Stackage. And now it’s also available in #Nix and #NixOS 20.09. Give it a try:

nix-shell -p place-cursor-at --run place-cursor-at

I think people should only slag off programming languages they love. That is fair game because if you love a language it usually means you know it well enough to hate it. Slagging off a language you've never or hardly ever used, for whatever reason, is not a good look.

40 has landed in so the next few days/weeks will be painful as the extensions I rely on make the required changes. Living without will be particularly painful.
