It took me way too long to come around to the concept of containerization, but damn if you can't do some pretty cool things with it.
I’ve never been happier to hear about a minor feature update in my life 😁
“Firefox to hide notification popups by default starting next year”
Git internals, in a nutshell:
.git/objects contains a bunch of files named for their sha-1 hash, these are objects.
An object can be a blob, tree, commit, annotated tags, or arbitrary user data.
A blob is a file.
A tree is a list of files, their unix file mode, and other trees.
A commit has a list of parent commits, a date, author, commit message, and a tree ID.
An annotated tag has a commit ID and a message.
References are files in .git/refs, whose contents are a commit ID. Example references include branches (.refs/heads), tags (.refs/tags), and remote branches (.refs/remotes).
Remotes are stored in .git/config, as well as any relationships between remote branches and local branches.
Folks, I’m seeing a lot of people recommend setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false to fix the Firefox extensions issue.
⚠️ DO NOT DO THIS! ⚠️
It disables signature checking on extensions which means that you open yourself up to malicious extensions if you install any new ones or if you have auto updates on.

I've been listening to the Titans of Text podcast and am loving that sweet, sweet text-based nostalgia: https://www.titansoftext.com
Fun fact: MUD, the genre's titular game, was called "Multi-User Dungeon" as an homage to #Zork, which was originally called "Dungeon" before TSR made them change it.
The thing I find particularly interesting about #mastodon so far is how different using it *feels*. It's a lot less "shouting into the void" and more "mingling in a crowded room."
Did you know that #kubernetes is Greek for "steersman?"
