Homöopathie ist die medizinische Luftgitarre. Allerdings gibt es für mit der Luftgitarre gespielte Musik keinen Cent, aber für die homöopathische Luftnummer zahlen die Kassen, also wir alle. Können wir bitte auch in der Medizin naturwissenschaftliche Standards einführen?

After the Mozilla announcement next week, have you started migrating off of Firefox yet? Bonus, if you're migrating, for what you're migrating to in the replies.

Have you ever heard of the mailto:?attach=~/… parameter? It allows to include arbitrary files on disk. So, why break PGP if you can politely ask the victim's mail client to include the private key? (1/4)

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.

Heute mal was ganz Neues:
"Sehr geehrte Fahrgäste, in Kürze erreichen wir Berlin Ostbahnhof, 10 Minuten früher als geplant." 😂

Watch Out for the Cops

Today a small GNU/Linux #GTK #Rust App I wrote got published on Flathub: OvGU Mensa! The App displays the canteen menu of the Otto-von-Guericke University #ovgu and several other canteens managed by the Studentenwerk #Magdeburg. The App currently displays no menus as the canteens are closed.

The App is visible in all Software Centers with Flatpak installed.


I'm also looking into publishing it on snapcraft.io but currently lack the time to do so...

So... The water inlet hose of our washing machine recently broke, flooding the downstairs neighbors apartment. Weeks and weeks of dealing with an upset elderly lady, handymen and insurance companies... not an experience I can recommend 🙃

How long till more people are infected via zoom than via social contact?

Fun fact: even git push -f doesn't lose data, either. The server keeps a reflog just like your local repo does. You can git reset --hard master 'master@{1}' on the server to undo a force push.

A few days ago, I found a way to get pixel-perfect #scrolling with the #logitech M720 mouse under #linux (#gnome, #systemd) working as described in my blog post:

Today, I found the `general.smoothScroll.msdPhysics.enabled` option in #firefox's about:config. This makes the scrolling experience with my M720 incredible! The acceleration and accuracy is mind blowing!

Does anyone know what `msdPhysics` are and how they work? Maybe I can apply this technique to other Apps...
