it's extremely bullshit that I can be a 2X year old who has had a credit card my whole adult life, has never missed a payment even once, has <30% RCU and very rarely above 50%, and yet still only have "good" credit
not bullshit in that "I'm good, others are bad", but bullshit because, oh my gods, how is anyone less privelaged than me supposed to succeed within this system
They found it curled between two pebbles. A mouse, eyes closed, hands curled, with perfect, brilliant blue fur.
Questions crowded their mind, the most important: was it okay?
When the mouse twitched, as if in dreams, they felt a sudden wash of relief.
They took it home and fed it crumbs and carrots. It explored with cautious sniffs.
Over time, it became swift and skittering. Its human learned the tickle of its whiskers on their fingertips.
They were happy together.
i guess i just refuse to believe that Mac OS is that much better than Ubuntu when the steps for controlling a webcam on Mac OS are:
1. buy a new webcam. you aren't allowed to fuck with the built in one at all
2. buy a shady piece of chinese software that hasn't been updated in over two years (it's the only one that supports things like setting aperture priority mode)
3. pray that it supports your webcam and that it's not selling your data off
whereas on Linux it's:
1. install a free, professionally packaged piece of software that supports every webcam that the platform supports thanks to self-reporting kernel APIs
and if there's a problem there's at least a place to report it

Project of the year 😅
A very good friend started keeping #bees a few years back. Due to private and you-know-why-reasons we were unable to see each other for three years. Now we had a chance to meet in person again and I was introduced to her beautiful busy girls. #apiculture #beekeeping #photography CW: #macro #insects. (But they're sooooo cute and fluffy!!! Please have a look!)
“Many internet users mistake this annoying situation as a direct outcome of the GDPR, when in fact companies misuse designs in violation of the law. The GDPR demands a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’, as reasonable people would expect, but companies often have the power over the design and narrative when implementing the GDPR.”
Missed this a couple of weeks ago, and it could make a huge difference to our browsing experiences (and compel sites to do better!)
