Firefox developers changed the text for some options in the right click menu, making half second actions take thought. Thank you for that.
Almost been 24 hours. I don't have control of my domain. GoDaddy shows it for sale. $5000 instead of $16. Contacting support in the morning.
Okay, IN MY DEFENSE: It is rare (and becoming more rare) to find a 2+2 letter domain that you don't have to pay hundreds of dollars for.
Oh, you've got to be kidding me. I can get xx.xx (domain withheld) for less than I paid for mck.cx! That's one character less!
I am now the proud owner of the domain 'mck.cx'. This is only the 2nd domain I've bought without a purpose, but I'm still part of the club.
My 9.5KB plain text feed is also getting up there. I've been thinking about adding a feed with only recent posts. Last 25 or 30, probably.
A month ago, /twtxt.html was the largest page on mckinley.cc. I split it into several files and now the January-April page is the same size.
Oh, wow, Dogecoin almost hit a quarter. Maybe I should get some when the price stabilizes a bit.

PEOPLE DO THAT WITH A HEADLESS CHROME INSTANCE? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? WHO COULD POSSIBLY- WHY WOULD- THE- I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH CHARACTERS.
140 characters cannot even begin to contain my problems with this blog post. https://apex.sh/blog/post/pre-render-wget/
I had a nightmare last night, I had to check my email on an M1 MacBook Pro, and the email client on it was just terrible, almost unusable.
I wouldn't have bought this mouse if it wasn't on the shelf at Micro Center. I've always thought it was a meme, but I like it a lot.
I got a Kensington Expert Mouse. My only other trackball is of the thumb-ball style. The Expert Mouse is very different, but nice to use.
GitHub really doesn't make it easy for you to do things anonymously. At least you can see repositories without JS. (Looking at you, GitLab!)
OnionShare now lets you host an anonymous chat room. You can also run multiple services at one time. It just keeps getting better.
I'm currently updating an Arch system that hasn't been updated since October. Wish me luck.
Everyone should read this. 'User domestication' is a great term. https://seirdy.one/2021/01/27/whatsapp-and-the-domestication-of-users.html
Reject modernity, return to poor contrast and flashy GIFs. https://www.wonder-tonic.com/geocitiesizer/
Hey, it's pi day!
Automatically generated web content never ceases to amuse me. (Spyware warning) https://www.slant.co/versus/126/128/~go_vs_brainfuck
Found a PGP signed twtxt feed. I've been thinking about this, I wonder how many clients it breaks. https://domgoergen.com/twtxt/mdom.txt
/twtxt.html, at 12.9KB, is now the largest HTML document on https://mckinley.cc/.
Live.js is neat, but I don't know why you would include it in the document. I just put it in a userscript for 127.0.0.1. https://livejs.com/
"72% of people feel that almost all of what they do online is being tracked by advertisers" Wow Google, I wonder why they feel that way.
"Charting a course towards a more privacy-first web." Yeah, okay Google. https://blog.google/products/ads-commerce/a-more-privacy-first-web/
Why is it so common for help sites of software projects to have no links back to the main site? I always have to change the URL manually.
The AC adapter for my W700ds arrived. I can now say the reviewer who referred to it as "a very brick-like power brick" was absolutely right.
MC 1.17: I predict there will be a bedrock wall generated on the border of 1.17 chunks that go to y=-64 and pre-1.17 chunks that go to y=0.
MC 1.17: Bedrock in existing chunks won't be replaced with grimstone. Grimstone starts at y=-1, bedrock ended at y=0. Very specific numbers.
I turned on access logging for https://mckinley.cc/, so if you want to go there using weird browser/hardware combinations, now is the time.
I've been on an archive.org book waitlist for weeks because I can't find the book anywhere else. It sucks to not illegally download things.
I can't tell if this is going to be a real product or not. I sure hope it is, because it looks really cool. http://violence.works/
What an adventure, shame the article was never updated. (Google warning) http://unforgettability.net/content/page/projects_cobalt
Calls to "own your data" and focus on "privacy" fall on deaf ears if you're sponsored by Google and Mozilla, recommending the use of Tumblr.
The 1.17 update to Minecraft will have some interesting features, but I don't really see myself playing a lot of anything newer than 1.12.2.
People's minds are blown about how Mojang made worlds deeper in Minecraft. I predicted this exact solution months ago and was called crazy.
Search engines are not browsers, browsers are not search engines.
To the Canadian gentleman signing every guestbook he can find in Gopherspace, I salute you sir.
The 140 character limit of the twtxt spec is annoying. I hope you got the essence of my previous post.
I was once shown a site with CSS making it look like the source HTML but I didn't save it. If you know it please send a message on Session.
