"Meat consumption is associated with better mental health, meta-analysis finds"

Literal quote from the article:

"This study was funded in part via an unrestricted research grant from the Beef Checkoff, through the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association."

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 (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fitts'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.

I got zero responses last time I hit up the Fediverse offering paid creative work, but I'm not giving up!

Some #Owncast features being worked on require iconography. And while we could use an icon library or something like Fiverr it'd be nice to work with an illustrator on the Fediverse who focuses on icons to have something that is custom.

This is paid work, so please boost and tell your friends.

Feel free to message me on the fediverse or email me: gabek@real-ity.com

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 (github.com/betodealmeida/shill) last month, and I gave the exact same reasons for learning and using SQL!
