I have several websites loaded in firefox, and have to bail. So I go to each tab and choose “save page as…”. Then Firefox re-downloads all those pages. WTF? How can #Firefox be so foolish?
If #Gitlab is racking in $87.4 million in one quarter, then they can afford to take their flagship instance off of #Cloudflare. https://siliconangle.com/2022/06/06/devops-darling-gitlab-displays-strong-growth-easily-beats-earnings-revenue-targets/
Why is it that when I have a loaded an image or PDF in #Firefox or #Chromium & I request a save, the browser downloads it AGAIN? It was already downloaded to the cache, and rendered. There is no reason to re-fetch it. It’s wasteful particularly for those on measured rate connections. Mozilla & Google should be smarter. C’mon guys this is so simple- how did you screw it up? #askFedi
Living in the #Netherlands?
Sign this #petition to the #Dutch Government with a plea for fair #education in the classroom and to keep children away from #privacy-infringing #SurveillanceCapitalism platforms they (and their teachers) are forced to use.
Suppose there is an #email address firstname.lastname@example.org, and the MX server for that is mail.bobsplumbingxyz.com. It seems to suggest he runs his own mail server, but it’s unlikely that a plumber runs his own mail server. So what’s going on in cases like this? Is there a way to discover the real mail server? #askFedi
My rat electrocution chamber is the most sophisticated & most costly anti-pest gear in my arsenal, yet it is the least effective. It killed 1 rat, vs. ~30+ #rats killed with a simple cheap snap trap.
The FOSS community is hypocritical to a large extent & it’s not the just the maintainers-- it’s that FOSS project owners/maintainers are predicting & assuming that the FOSS community will put account management laziness above principles. More projects & notable projects need the balls to say “fuck you” to MS & #Gitlab.com-Cloudflare-Google et al.
