DHL sent ALL PinePhones to New Zealand instead of their actual destinations. How this happened is beyond us. This is a massive blunder on their part, but ultimately we're the one that gets to apologize to you - very sorry about this. It will take a week to sort this situation out.

The way I meet “agile software development” in real life it's mostly about management making developers micromanage themselves. It's about illusions of control, numerical metrics devoid of actual meaning and dissolution of responsibility.

TIL tang ping (lying flat) is a social protest in China where young people refuse the capitalist #overwork rat race, and instead scale down their income to meet only the essential needs.

I'm in full support with this protest against #overconsumption.

Eg har eit desperat behov for litt optimisme eller noko positivt, så eg får bidra litt med det sjølv. For ei stund sia byrja eg halde ei personleg heimeside av det gamle slaget ved like. Berre ein bunke ting eg vil dele, der eg deler på ein måte som passar meg og eg gir blanke blaffen i kva andre folk meiner verdsveven er, bør vera eller bør verte. Det er ganske morosamt, pussig nok. Passar vel inn med tankegangen om digital hage og slikt som har vore snakk om her tidlegare.

My forth (well, mine in the sense that I've mostly ported Jones forth to the 68000) is now self-hosting and is complete enough that I can start using it to play around on this virtual machine I've started.

Quick demo showing stack operations and some text i/o. Address 16384 is the beginning of the 2000-byte text frame buffer, so the loop at the end just fills some video memory with font glyph 1, a smiley.

A long read where everyone comes out looking bad. (And those portrayed as the ”defenders of privacy” aren’t necessarily doing so out of the goodness of their hearts either!)

Facebook acquired a company called Crowdtangle in 2016; it makes a social media analytics tool that the press has used to monitor subject-matter trends on Facebook, especially in the runup to the 2020 elections.

Facebook just gutted Crowtangle.

Crowdtangle had operated as a semiautonomous unit within Facebook, primarily used by media companies to track the social media performance of their stories.

Stuchburry has been a stumbling block for private land developers. What next? Grabbing the land to construct expensive mansions...

And I just now realized it also is decided by which exact page element has focus. I hate current web. I hate the current web. I hate the current web.

The person who made scrolling with the keyboard on Mastodon jump between posts instead of scrolling at a fixed speed... Have they ever used a keyboard? Have they ever read a stream of posts? What on Earth makes a person think random scroll speed when the key start repeating is a great idea? (This also covers every other web page using the same ridiculous design decision.)
