I released a new version of my Firefox extension that will forcefully redirect you away from privacy erosive services to better alternatives. It started as a joke, but I end up actually using it.

When I want to look up a place, I instinctively and mechanically start typing "maps.googl...". This extension will instead take me to OpenStreetMaps. It will also functionally translate Google Search links to DuckDuckGo and Google Translate links to Deepl.

If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.

When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.

@kibousoft for next time, it would be good to include which timezone (assuming UTC at the moment)

There's still time to help ensure that Canada moves in the right direction on copyright. If you're Canadian and haven't voiced your concerns yet, please visit and have your say!

@robey @cwebber @emacsen room for last minute extension?

@dthompson can't keep mine consistently happy. It blooms some years and not others. If you know the secrets of the cactus blossom, please share

@nickwedig @cwebber Most of those are actually called "Somethingkohl" in german, "kohl" meaning "cabbage".

Cauliflower == Blumenkohl
Brussels sprouts == Rosenkohl ("rose cabbage")

Kale == Grünkohl
Collard greens == Blattkohl

and slightly obscure "Spargelkohl" for broccoli.

@DJWalnut @nickwedig Broccoli, cabbage, kale, collard greens, cauliflower, and many others are all the same species; humans domesticated them into different "cultivars"

fuck yeah agriculture

Computers are not just for oppressing people. You can do other things with them too.

@dthompson no possibility to mirror to peertube or something similar? Hate to miss out on cuteness, but can't bring myself to unblackhole fb's domains

I’d tell you a Fibonacci joke, but it’s probably as bad as the last two you’ve heard combined.

So there was a big protest today by schoolkids who blew off school and marched in the streets over government inaction on climate change.

The Prime Minister has said they should be less activist and focus on their schooling instead.

I just saw this sign. These kids are great.
