@kensanata Man, when you wrote brutalist, I thought like German protestant churches which basically are all open concrete and box shaped belltowers... But those ones are way beyond!! 😮

@andrhia Whoah, still creepy! 😲If that snuck up on me while buying produce or would silently glide across the aisle openings, it has all the key visuals of any recent war of the worlds adaptation. Did it seriously need to be that tall?!?

@angristan @szbalint I am still impressed every time one of these stories comes up, just how much thought the Sun folks put into ZFS. -- If only the licensing issue were worked out we would have it as a mainline Linux feature... 🙄

@thomasfuchs What I wonder always is this: there's a lot of violent/revenge movies, some of which take a semi-first-person perspective (the Equalizer, Olympus has fallen, basically any recent Liam Neeson movie, ...). Yeah, the hero fights the bad guys isn't that's the same premise as in video games? Hence, where's the difference? Why no talk about movies ever ? Could it be the lobby for movies e in the US being much bigger than the US lobby for making video games....?? 🤔

@fribbledom Agree! I mean, adult content has been a serious driver of various technologies and is said to have been decisive in some technology choices like Bluray vs HD DVD 😉 Not sure this will now really boost Mastodon but it's a kind of acknowledgement🤪

Does anyone know of a (curated) list of URLs of public EFA APIs (public transport)?

Do you know one for your own city maybe?

Please send them my way, I'm collecting them for an open-source project that lets you query public transport stops, timetables & routes:

@heiseonline Immer wieder die selbe alte Idee...
Wie wäre es mit einer Abschaffung der KFZ-Steuer und Umlage auf den Treibstoff. Das würde wirklich mal einen Anreiz schaffen, weniger und/oder sparsamer zu fahren. Am Ende kann ich obendrein durch meinen Fahrstil viel beeinflussen. Wenn ich einen Kleinwagen ordentlich trete, verbraucht der auch locker über 10 Liter plus extra Feinstaub durch das ganze Bremsen...

@thomasfuchs OMG! I had that in my hands in the 80s! That particular memory was trapped in some offline storage area of my brain though I guess 😂

@craigmaloney Oh, really? Never thought about the card that is in mine... no issues so far but I guess it is never too early to make a disk image 😁

It’s one thing that streaming services write episode descriptions in a spoiler-free way, but when titles in Serious Publications start to resemble those then things are getting weird.

I am looking forward to a day when I can finally use one token for challenge-response auth across my devices 😑


Agree, PW manager is better than nothing, but it is in a sorry state for now:

* OSS password managers are great, but mostly do not sync
* can't trust closed source ones
* can't trust the (default) app stores either of them come from
* can't trust the platforms they run on not to be compromised
* 3rd party password managers do not work nicely with operating system keychains because no defined interface
* browser integration relies on plugins which can steal all passwords
