It's been 3 months since I submitted my browser extension to the Microsoft Edge store for a version update. 3 months and no response, no action.

@tomasino @solene ah, I found a wonderful Polish children's cartoon from the 70s. The protagonist, Pomysłowy Dobromir ("Inventive Dobromir"), keeps finding himself in situations requiring boring physical labour and comes up with simple yet effective technical solutions (no need to know Polish, the cartoons themselves are without dialogue of any sort):
Trust me, just watch one episode and you'll see what I mean.
I love the problem-solution-*iterative improvement* cycle in it!

Oko puściło mój tekst o kulturze hakerskiej, i o tym, dlaczemu pisanie o "hakerach hakujących hakami" gdy tylko coś nie halo z komputerami jest zwyczajnie szkodliwe:
