Damn, just got texted a 'hmservice dot online' phishing campaign.

haha, just learned how to use "Cloudflare Workers", so I made a site called 'Cool USA Facts'

if anyone is having weird issues with Google-owned websites under firefox,

maybe turn off http/3. it's off by default, but you turned it on like 2 months ago to "see how the latency numbers are" you colossal nerd

re: tech review 

4. Can't notice any audio/video desync when watching videos through Firefox Preview on my phone.
5. Price tag is a little high but I do not feel like I was charged significantly more money than the ear buds feel like they are worth.
6. The case is pretty reasonably sized and shaped, I like it.

tech review 

Huawei Freebuds 3:

1. Don't have the rubbery silicone tips most new earbuds do, makes them comfortable since they're on-the-ear rather than feels-like-it's-in-your-ear-canal, plus, it means they can fit more ears
2. Proprietary 'Huawei AI life' app is encouraged pretty heavily by most, but it's optional. I recommend installing it, configuring the buds, and deleting it after.
3. My phone connects to these (over Bluetooth 5.1) super quick. Switching between buds is very low-latency too

Seem to be getting way better performance with invidious than the YouTube site, maybe my routing to Google Video is worse than the invidious server's?

Announcing the SourceHut project hub 🎉

sourcehut.org/blog/2020-04-30-

I don't usually explicitly ask for shares, but this is a big deal for SourceHut - the project hub solves one of our major goals for the alpha. Please help spread the word ❤️

Oh, neat, YouTube parses the video's description(?) for a timeline now, and shows the sections while scrubbing the video.

I discovered this because of a 4.4 MB(!) class file in the SQLite JDBC connector.
