If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.

When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.

Our IBM sales reps seem to have moved from Lotus Notes to IBM Verse. Poor bastards.

I now get elasticsearch ads on facebook. *sigh*

Here it is, folks, my latest candidate for Worst Sentence In a Marketing Or Apology Email, 2018:

"Equifax® has chosen Experian® to provide you with this additional year of free credit monitoring services through their IDnotify™ product."

I have to submit a claim with my jewelry insurance company and, woo is this a bad website. Every checkbox is somehow off-by-one (so clicking on the topmost checkbox selects the second one and so on) on both Chrome and Safari; it just outright doesn't work on mobile Safari. After POSTing the form, it just redirects back to the first page (the server, which is running IIS7 and ASP.NET 4.0.30319 returns a 200 with an HTML body that does a JS redirect). GAH!

blog.rust-lang.org/2018/11/27/ apparently there are more trans folks using than there are women? That is somewhat surprising.

@JPEG Mast seems to crash when in popover on an iPad.

Is my surge protector supposed to have this many ants in it?

I'm trapped in an endless maze of sunrpcs, all alike

@ashfurrow Is something weird with DMs here? I just sent a DM, in reply to another DM, which shows up in my Notifications pane, but my DMs pane is empty and I get "Oops! An unexpected error occurred!" every time I open it.

it's always the goddamn gap locks that get you

"ACTOR_IDENTIFIER^]~ was presented with login verification"

Why is so bad? Everyone pays tons of money for it, and most of the infrastructure is shared with other Google services (so it should be fairly cheap to operate), but Gsuite (especially the Admin panel) is a neverending sequence of dumb bugs and bad UX.
