the fun part of having a blog is coming up with topics for new posts and maybe doing outlines or some research, or writing a draft paragraph or two and then abandoning all that and deciding you're never going to publish it

The eighth annual international Gender Census 2021 is now open until 10th March!

smartsurvey.co.uk/s/gendercens

It's for anyone whose genders (or lack thereof) aren't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and the results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

Heute mal wieder MS #Teams analysiert. Die Aufzeichnungen scheinen in der Azurecloud in den Niderlanden zu landen. Wenn man die IP traceroutet geht der Weg über die USA... Teams hat auch ganz ohne Interaktion meinerseits Verbindugen nach Großbritannien (Bis 30.4 noch vollkommen legal) und in die USA aufgebaut.
Mein Empfehlung ist mal wieder Teams stillzulegen und wenn das nicht geht OBS Studio für die Aufzeichnungen zu nehmen und sie ins Intranet zu packen.

How pathetic of Signal, first they blocked all forks from using their server or their name, so they weren't open to cooperation and federation, and now that Iran censored them, they want other poeople to help them selfhosting proxies to them.

I am against censorship but I don't like their modus operandi.

So Google recently removed an extension named "The Great Suspender" from the extension store due to the presence of malware in the extension:

9to5google.com/2021/02/04/the-

This change in the extension transpired after the project changed ownership, with the developer being quite silent on the subject (likely due to an NDA backed by lots of money): github.com/greatsuspender/theg

This change seemed to have been started back in June of 2020, with the malware introduced (or noticed) around October. 1/3

Bro: "Help me build a computer for my animation job! Nothing too fancy, I just want something better than my laptop"

"Sure thing! Let's see what's available for modern budget-friendly GPU's!"

The Internet: "So here's a $5 graphics card from 1998. If you want to spend a few extra bucks, here's an $800 RTX card. Anyway thanks for looking at my list of cheap GPU's!"
