For others who struggle with the newer, large UI that Firefox has had for a while now, you can make it more compact again by going to about:config, search for "compactmode", and change the value to true. Then when you right-click the toolbar and choose "Customize toolbar…", you should now have an option at the bottom to change the UI density. It has made it more usable on my laptop, where vertical space is at a premium.

Linkedin: Would you like to add causes?

"Sure ... where is committing to FOSS projects?"

"Okay, "Politics", I guess, and I'll fill in the details of...

> No that's fine. We just put "Politics". Well done. You did a Politics and it's on your profile now, so people can see you care about the cause of "Politics".

As you might have seen from the last boost, PeerTube's latest version now supports "ability to automatically import all videos from a remote channel (from another video platform)".

What does this mean?

It means you can automatically import your videos from YouTube to PeerTube 🥳

This just happened to me:

Same emoji, totally different representation. The first is when I post, the second is when I'm writing my post.

Unicode really didn't get it right when it came to emoji.

I was looking for a funny flat earth diagram for a work presentation and ran across this one and I'm just imagining the poor guy getting ostracized from the other flat earthers over his even more ridiculous theory

Most peripherals today are USB (or Bluetooth), which from everything I'm reading USB is a gorgeous spec! Even if you can validly criticize the security implications of giving every computer peripheral a common socket (I'm sure someone will bring this up).

USB does an excellent job lowering the burden on OS devs whilst giving hardware designers greater flexibility! Covering a vast variety of devices.

So in summary how does it work?

1/2?

People want to be safe, secure, and have privacy. People also want to no have to jump through hoops to have those things.

If you want people using your software to be safe, secure, and have privacy, make it happen by default, when your software is used in the obvious way.

I like to imagine Pagliacci being happy that all those memes brought people joy

The english wikipedia front page did a total Queen Elizabeth Takeover for the featured article, did you knows, and picture, but I guess they couldn't find a related list article so now it kind of implies that The Good Place is part of the royal cinematic universe

5. TCP mainly serves to help determine when packets have been lost & need to be resent.
6. TLS adds encryption, key negotiation, and historically compression but that was a security vulnerability.
7. HTTP phrases connections in terms of requesting resources.

And then there's ARP or DHCP for configuration...

At every layer there's error detection, though that might not be useful.

3/3 Fin!

There's just so much math to learn! This summary of 2500 years of math by Ross Street is nice but it leaves out calculus and a lot more.

When it comes to geometry, most people only get up to item 3 of the first cycle. 😢

anybody know something a little shorter that doesn't involve installing a plugin or something?

It sucks that phones are more and more often:

* Locking the bootloader
* No removable battery
* No SD card
* Curved corners, edges, and notch

The correct solution is to simply not use a phone. However, most people are forced to contend with these as phones seem to be necessary for their job, school, etc.

Even with no G-Apps and de-googling the phone, there are still other freedom-restricting aspects of having a phone that violate privacy.

I tried getting a student ID, and they said use the app - the proprietary app on the Google Play Store. I explained I don't have that - it took quite a bit of work to get a physical card student ID. I wonder what could happen if that becomes no longer an option. Will students be forced to get a "school phone," just as so many workers now have a "work phone." That's insane! Being forced to use non-free tools restricts your freedom - schools shouldn't need phones, most jobs shouldn't need phones, et cetera. I remember as part of the on boarding process at Subway, they wanted me to use the Subway University app... really?! That doesn't make sense to me - why do I need a phone to make sandwiches? Why do I need a phone for school?

Phones are a tool of convenience, I like having them and using them in a free way. The freedom to choose if I have one or not is important to me.
