Today the fine community working on #Thunderbird is having a bug day. Idea is to update long standing bugs, make sure bugs are bugs and not support request. If you use #thunderbird and want to give back, take 5 minutes today and join the party all the details are at wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:B , if you're too busy, just boost/Retweet so other people are aware and can give a hand. #qa #crowdtesting #email

yeah duh it's a tool and should be in the right hands etc etc. but STEM can't teach you how to be the right person and have the right hands

God fucking dammit. You do not own your children. You cannot make your children into whatever you want. You do not have a right to know if they are LGBT. You simply do not.

I might take down notbird.site for anywhere up to 24hrs sometime over the next week. I'm currently running the Mastodon instance simply within a Linux Container, but I want to move it to a KVM instance with disk encryption enabled for security

Firefox admits they will eventually be sending all of your DNS to Cloudflare. Cloudflare will monetize your internet browsing, no matter how much their PR people say they are.

If you want to disable that, go to "about:config", and set "network.trr.mode" to 5.

The values are: 0 - default off, 1 - race, 2 TRR first, 3 TRR only, 4 shadow, 5 off by choice

Bonus if they're for C++ or about numerical methods or linear algebra or performance.

I'm already planning to talk about property-based testing (quickcheck)!

Audience is a bunch of junior/senior college students.
