“#Mozilla is scheduled to add a new user anti-fingerprinting technique to Firefox version 67, scheduled for mid-May.
Called "letterboxing," this new technique adds "gray spaces" to the sides of a web page when the user resizes the browser window, which are then gradually removed after the window resize operation has finished.
Letterboxing was originally developed for the #Tor Browser four years ago, in January 2015.”

Ended up with over 2kg of nectarines in the jam pot, put maybe a dozen in by the dehydrator and reserved 6 of the best to just eat.
I don't think I have enough jars to contain all this though. Could make things interesting soon!
Besides a ton of nectarines (mostly turned to jam), the garden supplied a good handful of beans (dinner) and a few strawberries (breakfast, on muesli with yogurt).
Not a bad harvest considering how little effort I put into planting anything this season.
Today I added a visual bell to admu-shell and fixed a couple of things in Cuerdas Caóticas. The visual bell adds TV static to the screen, which then fades. There are some visually-interesting highly nonlinear interactions arising from not using saturating arithmetic to add the static.
Basically I wanted to fix the spacing problem with admu treating ^G as a graphic character and maybe got a little carried away. The effect looks pretty cool but I may end up backing it out at some point.

Today I had the opportunity to meet Louis Pouzin, the inventor of datagram, whose work influenced the design of TCP/IP and made Internet possible.
Louis is still active and is doing https://www.open-root.eu , an alternative Internet TLD (domain name extension system)!
The other day I joined the #tildeverse. You just give them your ssh public key and boom! You're in!
They have a lot of fun stuff like https://sdf.org has:
The welcome screen is *very* pretty and it logs you in to byobu ('folded screen' in Japanese) automagically.
byobu (like screen/tmux):
Yes, you can run it all at home, but there is no one to play with... ;-)
Not at my house anyhow.
