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. Meanwhile Firefox's approval process is near-instant and Chrome takes 24 hours on the long-end when something is brand new. No wonder I only have 19 users on Edge.

So many good, short snippets made me smile.
"Reddit … HN … Lobsters … is basically the new usenet. Except proprietary and centralized. … a lot of writing is still happening on Facebook, Twitter, and Insta. They killed a whole generation’s worth of Internet and that generation is still stuck in there. … a lot of today’s writing … presented … as podcasts or video essays." – @Sandra gemini://idiomdrottning.org/re

I have a podcast about the names we choose for ourselves, from handles and informal nicknames to legal name-changes. If you'd like to share your story of how and why you named yourself (however short or elaborate, by text or by voice) please get in touch! modern.technology/name/

I made this. It's a chocolate chia pudding. I have no idea what it would be for Brits.

A friend recently got into cheese making, so she supplied me with whey that i used here. Yummy and

If British people call everything pudding, what do they call pudding?

@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:
oko.press/wszystko-co-chcielib

> Za każdym razem, gdy okazuje się, że jakieś usieciowione urządzenie nie zostało wystarczająco zabezpieczone przez producenta, media piszą o „hakowaniu” i „hakerach”, zamiast skupić się na dostawcach wadliwego, niebezpiecznego produktu.
