Huawei phone with Android 7 not patched for 5 years: Good!

Phone with latest security fixes and mostly open-source rom you flashed and checked yourself: Alarm!

Bank Millenium blocks biometric login because my phone does not pass Safety Net CTS (unlocked bootloader). Magisk + Hide Prop config + hiding magisk app fixed it for me.

It's ridiculous because:

- NFC still works
- i have up to date Android and security fixes

The only good code review tool I'm aware of is Gerrit. GitLab's diff view is hot garbage. So fucking slow. GitHub's is okayish. sr.ht list are trash (plain text, no folding, no syntax highlighting, no context, no comment threads) but at least they are fast. Haven't used Gitea yet, but I assume it is at least better than Gitlab.

Why the fuck browsers do not have an option to pipe website to shell script?

I wrote a post how to add push to talk (system microphone mute) in i3 WM


I use English locale for my system, but I switched Firefox to use Polish locale. Why? Just to get rid of dumb US time format.

Also, the entire concept of "free time" is fucking backwards. We're taught/demonstrated/forced-to-agree as children that free-time is the "extra time" after all of our obligations to our employer, school, parental requirements, etc..

The economic model requires this perspective in order to eat, but that doesn't make it right.

Coders today are like painters in the Renaissance: they're mainly funded by evil organizations, what they produce exists to further that org's evil goals, but every now and then something beautiful comes out of it

If you contribute multi commit merge request / patchset get yourself a git-absorb. It speeds up committing fixups.


I was skeptical at first, but turns out tank ink jet printers are quite efficient.

Why every fucking taxi corporation have their own app. There should be one app and all taxi in the city should be available in it.

Unity (former game engine company) has merged with an actual adware and malware distribution company. That's not an exaggeration. Fake Flash installers, was blacklisted by Microsoft's anti-malware tool, VirusTotal entires, that kind of thing.



Don't build your games on engines you don't have the source code to.

Live demo of Mozilla's client-side text translation technology:


Runs in most browsers (but sadly not Safari), no add-on required, no sending your text to the server!

scribe.rip vs original medium

data transfered: 6kb - 1.2mb

Just saying...

You know what would be fun? If Lego made Mass Effect game. Or movie. Preferably both.

I honestly hate that we as a society decided the short name for #CryptoCurrencies and #CryptoAssets will be "crypto", rather than the much more appropriate word: "scams"
