Brexit Humour 

I’ll just leave this here..

I watched Free Solo this evening. All I can say is WTAF?! Scared the crap out of me just watching it on TV - and that was *after* watching Alex collect his Oscar!

Facebook collected users' phone numbers for 2FA, then made it impossible for them to keep their phone number private Facebook is not concerned about privacy because it views data as something to capitalize, not protect. Choose services that value #privacy


Agreement to request A50 extension passed by 412 to 202. Much more reassuring than yesterday’s close vote.

Oh good. Facebook gives advertisers your two factor authentication phone number.

<< They found that when a user gives Facebook a phone number for two-factor authentication or in order to receive alerts about new log-ins to a user’s account, that phone number became targetable by an advertiser within a couple of weeks. >>

Lily and I had a refreshment stop on the way home from our walk yesterday..

Can anyone recommend a succinct and well written intro to Javascript? I don’t want to be a developer, but I need to create some scripts for a tool that uses JS to create reports and some introduction to syntax etc would be useful..

@KDFrawg Well there’s a sight for sore eyes! How’re you Michael? :-)

p.s. Well found @larand !

‘Facebook labelled 'digital gangsters' by [UK] report on fake news’

“Facebook deliberately broke privacy and competition law and should urgently be subject to statutory regulation, according to a devastating parliamentary report denouncing the company and its executives as ‘digital gangsters’.”

Ah yes, those days when get loads of wonderful and supportive boosts, you've got a new Let's Encrypt cert on the site, your old, expensive Comodo cert has just expired, leaving you to realise the new cert is only set up for the 'www' domain....

Yup... those days. ;)

Urghh. 🤒Flu - bane of the self-employed. I blame all the public transport I’ve been using.

Dear kids in Washington State: you can make an appointment with your doctor, or walk into a clinic or ER, and get vaccinated. You don't need permission from your parents. You don't have to wait until you are 18. If the health care provider gets confused, the magic phrase is "Mature Minor Doctrine", and point out that not wanting to catch measles is sign of sufficient maturity.

Please reshare, and copypaste this any place this would be useful.

Well, I’m now properly embarrassed at the incompetence and general stupidity of my country’s ‘leadership’ - even more so than the past 2+ years.

@emery *hug* Sorry to hear of your loss.*

*Nothing else I can think to say that won’t come over as trite at best, patronising at worst.. *hug*

Kill the concept of "RT does not equal endorsement."

Don't share content if you don't endorse it.

Don't spread it. Let it die.

Do not give it a platform.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a ‘blogging engine / CMS’ that:

- is self-hosted (I’m thinking of hosting on Linode)
- option to post to via an API
- decent UI for non-techies
- password protected sub-pages that can generate RSS feeds (I’m thinking a public blog and one for family to replace FB posts)
- support for user accounts

Is this a feasible collection of features?!
