Does the battery-usage-by-app screen work for anyone in 14? Mine just hangs and makes the phone concerningly warm, suggesting something is spinning on the CPU.

2.2.3 has a bug breaking ACLs and sample fetchers against any HTTP method not enumerated in RFC 2616. The bug involves C structs full of function pointers implementing quasi object orientation. Gross.

The web wasn't lost by people posting baby pictures to Facebook. The web was lost when Google leveraged market dominance to enact a complete abrogation of web standards -- since the HTML 'standard' is now a 'Living Document,' the standard is "do whatever Chrome does," which is an unattainable goal.

There are four voting members of WHATWG. Two of them use Google's web rendering engine. A third is entirely financially dependent on Google. The other one is Apple. Who speaks for you? Nobody.

Got Sonic FTTH installed at home today. Going from 250 Mbps down / 12 Mbps up on Comcast to 900/850 on Sonic is pretty sweet. I'm sad to lose dual-stack , though.

I know I'm late to this party, but I just tried to fetch the source for a a Python module and learned that deleted all the repositories without hosting any backups or archives and with only a few months notice. Helpful reminder: don't fucking use Atlassian products.

This is kind of out there, but has anyone ever come across a bug where some `storcli` commands can cause an LSI controller to reset ~0.1% of in-flight IOPS? I have a good reproducer for it, but of course LSI was sold Avago who was sold to Broadcom who doesn't care about RAID controllers so there's not really an "upstream" to engage with...

Happy everybody! Remember, if anyone else breaks anything by pushing on this particular Friday, you're officially allowed to tell them to fuck off!

Took some photos at the (now-reopened) UC Botanical Garden today. Really enjoying the little Ricoh camera.

How many emails have *you* gotten so far about the data breach?

I see someone decided to cross-post something I wrote to hacker news. Oh joy.

I wrote a blog post about why v3 makes me sad. You know it's good because it's more than 50% footnotes. roguelazer.com/2020/07/etcd-or
