I run i3 as my window manager, and newsboat as a news aggregator.

When opening links in newsboat Firefox will steal the focus, even though it's in another screen. That's annoying, and I'd like to open a bunch of links from newsboat, and then go to Firefox to see them. But since Firefox steals the focus, I need to switch to another window and switch back to newsboat to keep reading.

The solution is to set "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" to true in Firefox.

Seriously, the Chrome team just landed a patch that lets sites block "View Source" _right in the middle_ of the Chrome Dev Summit.


A website selling soap: your password is WEAK, you should try again with capital letters and lower case letters and numbers and special characters and no English words

My literal bank: whoa whoa whoa, you can't put special characters in your password! Who do you think you are, the Riddler

Apple used to get Fitts's Law ('s_) so well in early Mac OS.

Now I have 2 displays organized one on top of the other. When a window in the bottom display is maximized and I need to access its menu I need to play this stupid game of "hover over the 1px boundary between the screens".

I heard that System76 are making their own desktop environment. Does anyone know an email address to contact them about its accessibility, since its so early in the project? I tried putting in a ticket but I couldn't log in, even after resetting my password.

If you send me a commercial email saying "we miss you" I'll unsubscribe faster than the speed of light.

I gave a talk about Shillelagh ( last month, and I gave the exact same reasons for learning and using SQL!

"SQL is a mature standard, well established, well known, easy to learn, and declarative."

I've just finished writing the initial draft of HTMLite! Went through and added links to all the other specifications I cited! Whilst incorporating some other feedback I've received. Added a new appendix to hold duplicates of all those links.

I'm sure there's plenty of cleanup and proof-reading left (any cryptographers want to fix my <keygen> specification?), but I'll back off for a bit now in favor of others.
