> did firefox change something to suspend tabs after a while, then reload when you tab back to them?

Looks like it. It's a memory-saving idea. New since November, possibly.

"Note: If you are an advanced user and you want to disable the Tab Unloading feature, set the preference browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory to false in the Firefox Configuration Editor (about:config page).

My friends!
Has Covid-19 forced you to wear glasses and a mask at the same time?

Been crazy busy with #pixelfed development lately, I decided to take a break and work on something else for fun.

Inspired by an expiring domain, I started building my idea of a bespoke guide to the fediverse.

Can't wait to launch this, I think y'all will love it! #fediverse #activitypub

Hi #fedizens,

Looking at the history of the internet, there always were influencing developments, some for the better, some for the worse.

❓ Thesis: In these months, the internet is entering a bad phase. Do you agree?

🔁 Boosts for visibility are welcome.

Working through with Apple Shortcuts app!

It's supposed to be used for getting some simple repetitive tasks automated by giving some control on Siri and your iOS device, but given that it has a few simple programming language features, I thought it may be fun to try and do some AoC puzzles with it :D

Its "library" of functions in terms of text/data manipulation is rather limited compared to popular languages, so I'm mostly relying on regex to get the job done, and it does work! That said, this thing is extremely hard to debug -- I can't dump print statements everywhere and "comment" them out to remove some temporarily. Plus, it takes literally forever to run when I give it real puzzle inputs.

I wish monospace fonts were back in fashion because you can do all sorts of things with them like charts which are simply impossible in proportional fonts.

Proportional fonts make everything harder and weirder and we've just never yet been able to settle on any kind of grouping structure that makes proportional fonts usable.

Except perhaps HTML tables, which are *almost* a useful backup replacement for monospace fonts when you don't have them. So naturally those are now considered Bad.

When was the last time you read Wikipedia’s list of common misconceptions?

Went on the Sustain Open Source podcast to talk about Plausible's journey to date in becoming a sustainable open source project.

Don't think we're the most popular one (Matomo has more than a decade headstart) but we're not doing too bad either!

For those of you using youtube-dl, Google is being scummy and it's throttling the connection to their servers to those using it.

https://github.com/ytdl-org/youtube-dl/issues/29326

For now, the workaround to make it work is to switch to yt-dlp, which is a fork of youtube-dl.

Can't sleep so i ask a question i am curious about. What is your most important reason you use GNU/Linux instead of Windows or macOS for example? I often hear because of privacy but honestly i don't believe that as this just counts for the distro itself most of the time. If you have any other reason that isn't listed you can obviously reply with your reason.
