Just a reminder that big companies will rather let you die than underbill you.
.@email@example.com has now confirmed what I wrote 4 days ago, that CP shut down pipeline because they couldn't bill customers. Per CNN: "The company halted operations because its billing system was compromised...and they were concerned they wouldn't be able to figure out how much to bill" https://twitter.com/KimZetter/status/1391574628582060033
"The world will know less about what is happening in #Gaza because of what happened today."
BREAKING: Israeli airstrike flattens high-rise building that houses The Associated Press, Al-Jazeera and other media in Gaza City, about an hour after evacuation order.
While we are on it, fuck also the people attacking synagogues. Netanyahu is a criminal, not because he is Jewish, but because he is a fascist. If you use him as an excuse to be antisemitic, you are one too.
And he did it to try to get people to forget his indictments.
On top of that Israel is the occupying power and has the duty to escalate the conflict.
So fuck Netanyahu. Fuck everyone that votes for him. Fuck everyone that finances him.
In the "Portugal is not a racist country" news, several of the biggest Portuguese newspapers published a list of MPs that included the European Portuguese equivalent to the n-word to qualify a Black MP.
isto é vergonhoso. inqualificável. não importa se foi a agência lusa que enviou a notícia.
que nojo é este caralho? é assim que tratam a deputada Romualda Fernandes do PS? preta??? wtf 🤬
I just tried @firstname.lastname@example.org's Code With Me for the first time. It was the best #PairProgramming experience I had. I will be using it often.
Back in November, we learned that Disney had pulled a breathtakingly criminal wage-theft manuever on one of science-fiction's most beloved authors, Allan Dean Foster, an elderly cancer-patient caring for his sick wife.
Foster is the bestselling author of some of the most successful movie novelizations ever, from the first STAR WARS novel to ALIENS novels and more.
Lots of people have been spreading the often-unnecessary advice to add a Permissions-Policy response header to their sites, and some have been going so far as to ask FLOSS maintainers to patch their software to make this the default.
If you read the actual proposals and W3C specs, you’ll find a different story.
Everybody: please calm down, take a deep breath, and read before you make such prescriptive advice.
FLoC is terrible, but telling everyone to add a magic “opt-out header” in every situation conveys a misunderstanding of everything you need to know about the opt-in/out process.

Surprising absolutely no one but their own cult members, @Apple@twitter.com's App Store is a fraud.
Overnight both @Apple@twitter.com and @EpicGames@twitter.com released hundreds of pages of new documents, containing lots of colour based on discovery and recent depositions. I stayed up reading so you don't have to. Here's what I learnt (couple *bombshells* in here)
WTF @email@example.com? https://www.androidpolice.com/2021/04/06/it-looks-like-signal-isnt-as-open-source-as-you-thought-it-was-anymore/
This makes me wonder if it would be better for sites to not set colours at all and for browsers to make the default colour settings more visible.
hi just a friendly reminder that it's not cool or "woke" to be a dark theme elitist. different color themes aren't just about your ""aesthetic"" -- they are important accessibility features.
(sorry for the awful collage of text... also light theme version in comments)
Solitary confinement is a barbaric punishment. With that out of the way, the country that has 20% of its inmates in solitary confinement should stop their crimes against mankind before they try to lecture other countries.
U.S. State Department blasts Cuba for solitary confinement, with some prisoners isolated "for months at a time."
