🇨🇿 in #Czech, modré zóny 

Úřední šikana nekončí. Zónu z chodníku se nám podařilo loni odstranit po 2 měsících dohadů. Půl roku jsme mysleli, že už bude klid, ale těsně před Vánoci(!) navrhla "Chodníkový program", který zavádí parkování po celé šířce OBOU chodníků jen o 30 metrů níž. Lidi ať chodí silnicí.
Už týdny tak trávíme noci a víkendy čtením norem, aktivizací sousedů, psaním námitek atd. Pokud chodíte na , můžete je poslat i vy:

@WPalant I really believe it's time for people to realise that IS . Same principles that apply to are applicable to . The true long-term solution is education of the general public, not the easy way of blindly trusting centralized authorities promising to do slightly better.
In that sense I agree that Moxie really "doesn't get it". Mostly, he's just defending his design choices thru the lens of his confict of interest.

Who would want their washing machine to just do the laundry when you can spend time updating it via a smartphone app first??

Is 's market research showing that there are customers who would consider non-automatic obtrusive updates anything other than a nightmare?

COVID-19 vaccine 

Received 3rd dose today. We got to choose which so we went with Spikevax (Moderna) this time for a change.

The vaccination site in Congress Centre was not organized well, though. There's a queue ticket system *before* the actual registration on a TV screen indoors and a crowd of people in a relatively small space waiting for their turn for about 20 minutes. Especially with on the (steep) rise this felt quite risky.

Don't Look Up is a painfully brilliant time capsule of the current state of humankind. That’s what we should be sending on golden plaques into deep space... As a warning.

A bit like but present-day, with a proper budget and less hyperbole.

BTW, I also kinda liked but if I can recommend just one this year it’s definitely .

There is lots of confusion about how someone got their hands on lots of #LastPass master passwords, and the official LastPass statement is certainly not helping. I analyzed the possible scenarios to find out what most likely happened here. #infosec

This is pretty amazing: "The Tree of Life" contains 2.2m species. Prepare for some mouse wheel action!

Pretty clever use of the Service Worker APIs: serve a local folder of files in your browser for easy testing without having to run a server. servefolder.dev/

Okay, why say "web browsers are hard to make, you need a huge budget to do so" instead of

Chrome wasn't built in a day

After multiple delays, finally arrived today and it kinda sucks for now at least for the mostly multi-media use-cases I had in mind... It creates a hotspot, I connected to it and used the web interface to configure Maypole to use our home wifi. It reconnects to it after each boot.
But it seems to have stability issues, it's usable only for small singular files, there's no support for downloading folders, gets so hot I have trouble removing it from the USB port etc.
