@JPEG Mast still looks hella weird in iPad portrait, btw. The right hand column runs off the screen...

For some reason, people at every company I work for end up deciding that they're empowered to put customer PII in random insecure third-party tools that they got cold-called about. Doesn't matter whether we provide them with a wealth of tools and an easy auditing process or if we do nothing at all — people have absolutely no sense of propriety about customer data.
@JPEG Notifications in Mast seem to be broken for m.t again
Ugh and also I can't read the New York Times (which I have paid for a subscription for for, I dunno, 12 yearas) any more in my preferred tool because reCAPTCHA decided my browser isn't supported and you can't login to the website without passing reCAPTCHA. Thanks, Google, glad you could also contribute to fucking up my day a little bit.
Oh no, amazon acquired #eero today. Do not want! Amazon's consumer products are *universally* privacy-invading garbage!
@JPEG next weird one: "Delete and Redraft" did delete the old post server-side (verified in another client) but it sticks around in Mast even after a pull to refresh. Stuck in a cache somewhere?
@JPEG you have *got* to start versioning your configs...
@JPEG Mast reliably crashes for me if I scroll to the bottom of its Settings screen

Chanukah Zombie is Mark Hamill and Kwanzaa-Bot is Coolio‽‽‽
Literally no software engineers know how to use Make. Every single person at my company just makes every target be phony and then uses the Makefile like a really crappy bash script. It drives me *nuts* and no matter how much I try to teach them, nobody else seems to care that every single invocation re-runs every single command. Augh!
Every async tool/library seems to be destined to build its own DNS resolver, and none of them implement RFC 6724 correctly. #curl
#Firefox 65 broke my userChrome.css styling with tree-style-tabs and now the system close/minimize/zoom buttons are hidden if you collapse the tab bar.
