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.

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.

It saddens me somewhat that nearly every database interface library for the last decade or two has huge warnings not to string-interpolate data into your queries right at the top of the documentation and yet SQL injection vulnerabilities still keep cropping up all over the place

help a black disabled person and their autistic son!

I need at least 100 to bring my account out of the red & get us groceries. I'm disabled & my son is autistic & our needs are unique. I need quick meals to get us thru the next 2 wks. Pretty soon I'll be getting in home care & assistance but it's a constant waiting game w these services.
Anything helps.

Yo dawg, I heard you liked writing tests, so I ran mutation tests on your property tests to see if arbitrary input on arbitrary code produced arbitrary output.

All that's left is fuzz testing. My laptop's fans hate me.

In case you haven't done it yet, you should give a look to the @fsf's new extension JShelter, which blocks JavaScript threats like malware, tracking and fingerprinting.

Of course, in an ideal world, nobody would allow JavaScript to run at all, but many websites people NEED to use require you to run JavaScript, so better be safe in that case too.
