Just spent 20 minutes trying to get PayPal to let me log in/make a purchase. I give up, what a piece of shit. It was never great but at least it worked.

Chapter 99 in The Tech Industry Is Broken With Problems It Has No Desire To Fix.

The problem with SQL is that it does not give you low level access to index structures, etc, so you can't bypass the magic of the query planner in cases where a) you know better b) you want fixed execution times

If you're a developer and not an english native speaker, which language do you use for your development tools?

Please don't answer if you're a native english speaker, not to bias the results. Boosts appreciated :)

The blacklist was implemented as fetching a list of installed apps on connect and removing the blacklisted apps from it and then setting up routing for each of the remaining apps through the tunnel. I wonder if that changed too

The WireGuard Android app now allows whitelisting programs instead of just blacklisting, nice!

@EdwardTorvalds I think container-based sandboxing like bwrap (bubblewrap) used by flatpak leads to a better permission model than policy-based systems like SElinux and AppArmor.

The main problem with #Flatpak is that permissions are controlled by the author of the app, and also not sufficiently visible to users.

Why can't we have both? That is, use bwrap to sandbox desktop apps distributed via traditional distro packages.

@tchx84, author of Flatseal:

Ubiquity controller software for access points does not run on recent versions of Debian (10) and Ubuntu (18.04 & 20.04) because they ship a too new version of MongoDB (and the MongoDB repo doesn't have those old versions either)…

Not sure if they want to convince you to buy a Cloud Key™ instead, but I can't imagine that running a newer OS either

If you show times anywhere, better show a time zone too or make damn sure the user knows which one it is for sure!
