@fribbledom I do think an expensive carbon and resource waste tax onto commercial web sites would be fun.

@noorul Hey. Not a direct answer to your question, but there is a command line tool called ddgr for searching on duckduckgo, maybe checking it out may help you on your quest. Good luck!

@lordbowlich I've been reading some reviews on Goodreads lately, to find what to read next, but I'm no active user otherwise. What do you like more about Librarything, or how is it different, if I may ask?


If you're looking for an alternative to Goodreads. I've had a lifetime subscription to Libarything for forever, and the site still feels like some kind of late 90s labor of love.

The prototype boards is fully assembled. The next part is the firmware and to test them before giving them a new home to some brave friends.


Alright, I don't have #Skyrim anymore, so I'm looking for all the best mods to make #Morrowind for PC as good as it can be. Any suggestions? I've found a couple of forum posts with suggestions, but if you have anything, let me know!

@Alamantus Check out OpenMW and modding-openmw.com - I so wish that there was some package management around this.. It takes days to set everything up, if you want a lot of mods.

In Germany, concert halls and opera houses have decided to have their events take place as usual, but instead of opening for audiences, they're streaming them online, for free.

Basically, thanks to Covid-19, a whole lot of poor people now have access to les beaux arts for the first time ever.


@dirtycommo Please share if you find something you like! Also interested.

My boss at Netscape presented the first public demo of HTML mail in 1996. It was an interactive form that made and edited airline reservations completely through mail. A handful of us then spent weeks lobbying folks to at least disable JavaScript - which was present in the earliest releases. The airline reservation demo was f*cked after we did that. You could get it to work with a traditional HTML form, but the interactivity (like client-side form field validation) was shot to hell. In response to why it's so bad - because not only the editing issue mentioned earlier, but you have all the security issues of HTML and email and some new issues which are unique to the combined effort. For instance the ability to track who opened/read a message using images. And the SSL complications are a nightmare. You really need not only a separate browser, but a completely sandboxed browser, and this conflicts with the requirements of the web browser. So you end up with a fork of the browser solely for email use and the email devs don't usually have experience writing browsers, and the browser devs have no experience trying to make it secure for email. So ultimately the fork is poorly maintained.  Then fast forward 20+ years after this neglect has become institutionalised and you find yourself in the situation we find ourselves today.

is damned interesting. For a long time I've wanted to share things peer-to-peer and not have to rely on some networks we don't really need for a lot of tasks. This looks awesome.

Letsencrypt is going to revoke 3,048,289 certificates tomorrow that "may" have been wrongfully issued due to a wrong CAA DNS check.

To check if you're affected, and need to re-issue certs (before tomorrow!), check here:
