Al Jazeera is playing a show on Artificial Intelligence that demonstrates setting sports team preferences by voice with Google Home, using the actual wake words and commands.

My sports preferences are now set by a Spanish TV host.

Thanks, I guess.

ERMAGHERD qutebrowser finally has dark mode, MY EYES AREN'T BURNING ANYMORE

I was seriously about to switch back to Firefox until further notice over this, but it got fixed upstream in QTWebEngine and, sure, it's not *quite* as pretty of an implementation as Dark Reader, but it's quite functional and, importantly, *finally exists*!

This little browser keeps on impressing me so far.

Mozilla Google budget screaming 

Something is just wrong here... Mozilla just extended its deal with Google (making it the numero uno search engine) for something like 400 million dollars PER YEAR. For the next three years.

That is 1.2 BILLION dollars from 2020 to 2023.

If you cannot run a freaking NON-PROFIT on 400 MILLION dollars PER YEAR that means:

a) You are paying your executives too much.
b) You don't know how to manage a non-profit.
c) All of the above.

made it to Maine today and swam in the ocean! it's been very beautiful, got a good combo of rural farmhouses and marshy wetlands and also, the beach. dealing with a little bit of knee pain but I think it is mostly due to pushing myself too hard. tomorrow should be an easier day and I'm gonna try to do shorter days until I get used to biking with a lot more weight than normal. also apparently prodigal does Not Mean what I thought it meant so I am changing my hashtag to #BigGayBikeTour #mastobikes

get in the zone (free public library wifi zone)

When I park across the street from McDonalds, I look at it and sarcastically think to myself, "This…is what people want."

But there is some truth to the human desire for greasy fast food.

Are these market forces an expression of democracy?

The thing where I barely have enough energy to do the things I need to do at 7:00 and yet am wide awake at 3:45 is cool. Only about half sarcastic here.

I remember seeing a “project management” or “issue tracker” type product for software devs on HN like two months ago and now I can't remember what it was.

I remember the demos of it looking very lightweight and performant and was interested in bringing it up in a conversation about Jira today, but I blanked.

in Gajim I used to be able to trust my old keys; that doesn't seem to be the case with this install 😔

I finally installed Gajim on the desktop I've been using. Here's my newest fingerprint.

If I do get a software business off the ground, I can still do all the fun promotion stuff I wanted to do for myself as a musician…

So I'm just finding out about asciidoc and I'm kinda really liking it a lot more than markdown already...and I haven't even written anything.

Anyone have this experience? Anyone have an opposing view to offer?
