Brilliant. I just bought an ebook I can't read because of DRM (Digital Rights Management) and after fiddling around for an hour, I am very close to getting a pirated version so I can finally read it.
Great stuff.

FTR, all I needed to start doing on was: pkg install leiningen.
It is *that* easy these days.

For comparison: I just spent about 2 hours doing chapter 1 of "Web Development with Third Edition"'.
This involved me geeking out on all the various tools in between and... I can say I have a broad understanding of the system and a good intuition of its strengths and can already start hacking simple things.

's bootstrapping reaaaaally needs to get better.

Every few months I keep coming back to and think "huh, this looks nice".
Then I spend an hour or so figuring out the tooling, end up giving up and archive it until next time I forget why I'm not using it.

Anyway, everyday is for all of those that I consider my , thank you for your often-underappreciated-work.

Maybe for next year I should remind people ahead of time that is a thing.
But hey, nothing breaks, so nobody bothers me :-p, I'm fine with that too.

Ogni giorno interagisco con cinque o sei lingue naturali. Non sono capace d'immaginare la vita di un monolingue.
Una nuova lingua porta nuovi prospettivi, più cultura, più vita.

It was tested on , support might require minor editing, do poke if that's an issue (also if it isn't and it works for you).

So, I got fed up with phabricator's UI for audits, if anyone has to do way too many audits and needs some streamlined batch auditing helper, this might be useful for you:

O.ô Upload Filter + diese Regelung mit Ziel: "[Verpflichtung aller Anbieter ihrer] Plattformen aktiv nach Bildern von Kindesmissbrauch zu durchsuchen", heißt doch AI trainieren und dafür **dementsprechende Datensätze haben**, oder?
Es klingt… Bescheuert.

COVID / Media 

Virtually all Spanish Media these days: "SUCCESS, VACCINE MOVES FORWARD!".
Me meanwhile: "nope, wrong framing, people will actually believe that risk is about to magically disappear".

This on the other hand, spot on (and not just for the U.S.):

I've just wasted about 20 hours in total to, I kid you not, Windows 10's inconsistent use of case sensitive APIs.
Apparently you can find either of these depending on Windows 10's build or god knows what:

Die SBB empfehlt mir die Schweiz weiter zu entdecken.
Die News empfehlen mir weiter zu hause zu bleiben '^^.
Ich wäre auch gerne Optimist abeeeer...

"Meta" Bemerkung: je später im Leben ich eine Sprache gelernt habe, desto einfacher es mir vorkommt, über persönliches in der Sprache zu sprechen.
Daher, dass es grad Deutsch ist. Evtl wird's doch Italienisch in einem Jahr sein.

Heute bemerkt: morgen fängt Monat 6 meiner "sozialer Isolierung" an.
Trotz des Leids und der Leere, fühlt es sich langsam "normal" an; wozu will man Menschen um sich wieder? Ich vergesse es häufiger.

Now, I wonder if, like back in 2015, the EU and the US will start rushing to reach an agreement that puts a patch on things and calms public opinion without actually addressing the issues or, you know, just stop giving US companies a comparatively favourable treatment when it comes to data privacy regulations.

I find it interesting that the
article repeats multiple times "The European Commission and U.S. officials maintain the Privacy Shield improves privacy protections."
As if it was worth saving.

What they doesn't mention is that Privacy Shield came to be because Safe Harbour, the thing regulating data transfers before, was also deemed invalid (AKA: this has happened before!)
And well, Privacy Shield wasn't great even in 2016, much less now:

Different ways of reading the same news:

~~"US is not worthy of special treatment regarding data privacy and is to be considered a third country"


~~ "How dares the CJEU put privacy before the economy! Privacy Shield is good!"
