After Mozilla recently began accepting donations via BitPay, many people started being vocal about cancelling Mozilla and Firefox and switching to other browsers.

I know crypto sucks, but don't y'all realize that the other browser engines are developed by megacorps that are LEAGUES ahead in terms of ecologic impact, and that are almost entirely built on top of evil business models?

Mozilla's only sin was accepting donations via BitPay. Please let's stop being so toxic about everything, and boycott BitPay and Bitcoin rather than Mozilla, shall we?

What even. I just got a birthday email from GEICO.

Cute, but, I've never used you, I never WILL use you, and most of that is because you keep sending me emails. Don't make me grab my denylist.

At least they got the day right.

Okay... all four people that follow me, testing time. Anyone with an account, ping me at [email protected], preferably with an OMEMO capable client. I want to make sure I didn't break something.

Holy.... I just got Lego Drome Racers working on windows 11. I'm still holding the CD from when I was... Way too young.

Talk about some , except now I actually know things, like what the buttons actually mean (or that PgUp is the shift key in drag race qualifying)

Next up: Nascar Racing 4? Can't remember if it's got SecuROM I'd need to NoCD patch or not.

I wonder if @delta ever plans to implement the REQUIRETLS SMTP extension on compatible servers (given it's a Nov. 2019 RFC, there's likely not going to be many for some time).

TL;DR, REQUIRETLS adds an additional attribure the sending side can add to their `MAIL FROM` SMTP command to tell the server that if the server cannot guarentee TLS when it relays the message on, it needs to fail it. So, DANE and MTA-STS are required for the next relay in the chain.

If you don't know the ISO math, 3200 EI on 400 ISO film means I gave it *one eighth* of the light it "wanted" and extracted that off it through deliberately leaving it in the developer too long.

ISO 400 film at EI 3200. AKA, pushing it to the limit of how far I can reasonably play with it's sensitivity and get good results.

Somewhere I got some light leaks (okay, I know where), but other than that, the frame that are good are good.

@tobtobxx 😆 You're so welcome. Here are a few more I've found useful in firefox (I always go looking for these in programs):

ctrl+shift+n: reopen closed window
alt+number: switch to that number tab
ctrl+shift+m: responsive design mode
ctrl+alt+r: reader view
ctrl+shift+pgup/pgdn: move tab to the right or left
alt+left/right: back/forward in history (or alt+scroll wheel on a mouse)

5 rolls. 60 exposures.
Let's see what I can make of these.

(Going to visit family on the 31st, some of whom are serious old-school photography people, so this'll be fun)

"Hey so I'm just going to underexpose this, and then develop it for too long, and it'll work. You think?"


"I don't know...."

I uh... Should have been a little more confident that I'd pull it off.

This is ridiculous, Mediacom "business class" internet is a joke.
At THREE POINTS yesterday we had complete connection failure, resulting in roughly 1.5 HOURS of downtime. Get your act together.

To paraphrase my father, "This is why I switched to digital, it's a lot cheaper."

But... less fun. And have I ever been one to skip out on something eccentric in the name of efficiency?

Once again, I find myself giving more money to Ilford

If Christmas this year needs more than *sixty* (60) 6x6 pictures taken, then... well I'm not utilizing the cheaper format enough, because my go-to should be the 108 frames of COLOR 35 I'll have.

As of this point in time (maybe pending a browser cache refresh), I've swapped from Disqus to for my blog's comments provider. Now I just need to work on the OAuth integrations.
