What is now happening in my hometown, , is tragic: as people scramble to get food or medical care, hopes and dreams are being reduced to just the innate desire to survive amongst the chaos of distrust and confusion. To say my heart aches for the city crying for help is an understatement. Forced by the unscientific policy, the unnecessary loss (suicides, untreated diseases, etc.) of lives, and the permanent damage to civility, is irrecoverable. The world deserves to know!

Hoo boy, here goes my most magnum of opuses rn lol.
I never keep track of how much time i spend doing my works in general, but thanks to Krita i had finally known how much it took me to realize this big project (by viewing the info to my .kra doc):
10 hours and 7 minutes!

Due to the unholy amount of time took, this has also been quite a challenge to draw over a dozen of ocs (each belonging to diff. users online. If i were to give credit, it will go beyond the char. limit of this instance) all in one canvas.
While it all started as a request from my dear friend (huge respect to him, he's very patient and all), it challenged me to even get more at hand with mastering the masking layers and the Colorizer tool in general.
The whole project has been a whole singular process per each day (ex. a whole evening to sketch, another to inking, etc.), but nonetheless i had surprising effects such as not really feeling tired afterwards and breezing thru things while not feeling my eyes nor my right hand a wreck!

I really do not know what to put in conclusion here, except how everytime i use my laptop with LM for a very extended time period:
i feel my jaw dropping how once turned off it unheats quickly.
It barely becomes a burning meteor (not even) compared to when i ran win10 back then as the main OS.
Wow, MS quite trash tbh.

今天的 the Onion.
The Onion从2014年开始就给每次枪击新闻都用同样的这条标题:"No Way To Prevent This,' Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens". 今天他们把过去几年的这些新闻都一起登出来了。

@17 I think the more important (and divisive) question is whether instant noodles can be called ramen or not. My friends would call both instant noodles and bowls as ramen, but I absolutely cannot tolerate this lol

So : Would you call instant noodles ramen?

However, while performing a security audit of the DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser, security researcher Zach Edwards discovered that while the browser blocks Google and Facebook trackers, it allowed Microsoft trackers to continue running.

DuckDuckGo CEO and Founder Gabriel Weinberg confirmed that their browser intentionally allows Microsoft trackers third-party sites due to a search syndication agreement with Redmond.

There’s just something about getting dead tree spam mailed to my house about a privacy focused web browser that isn’t sitting well with me… 🤔

本区这几天一直可以每天出小区三小时,但是今天早上核酸的时候测出一个阳性感染者,所以通知明天开始又要静默三天又要核酸三天……
今天晚上出去挥霍我的三小时的时候发现真的满大街都是人……前两天路边基本上都没什么人的,今晚路边和公园全是聚集在一起跳舞/下棋/嘎三胡/坐一起玩手机的人,街上洋溢着一种明天又是末日的狂欢感。
我牵着Nikki走到平时一直遛到的一个商业街,敏锐地发现一家奶茶店门口聚集着三个人,我凑过去问可以买吗?其中一个矮个男的应该是店主,悄声对我说了三个字:“血糯米?”我也忍不住压低了嗓音问他:“血糯米两杯可以吗?”他就指着门口的一个二维码说30,把门拉开一条缝钻进去,我瞄了里面一眼原来玻璃门上贴着一层海报,店里面是亮着灯的,关上门外面就看不见灯光。我扫好付钱完不久,又有三五个人聚集过来,问我们能不能买,我说我买了,你等店主出来问他吧。终于店主做好奶茶出来了,他又开门左看右看,发现没有条子后提着好几袋奶茶钻出门,又关好门小声说了两个字“珍珠?”,这时在我之前来的一个姑娘就回“珍珠!”然后拿着她那一杯走了。店主又“芋圆?”另一个人回了句芋圆在这后也提着他的两杯走了。我在边上就看懂了,对店主直接喊“血糯米!”,店主就把两杯奶茶给我了。我妈坐在边上目睹后半程问我这还有暗号啊?我:地下交易,低调一点。
提着两袋奶茶我和我妈喜气洋洋地走在回家路上,突然一辆警车呼啸而过,我们不约而同地停下,看警车停在路边一家蛋糕店前,这家蛋糕店开灯了!警车里走下一个警察,他进了蛋糕店,我们远远地可以看到店里只有一个姑娘,在警察进去一会会后,这家店的灯就灭了!草真的很恐怖,然后警察上车走人。我忍不住脑补了一出灭门惨案……
走到小区门口了,我们小区门口的水果店老板夫妻这两天都是骑着一辆电瓶车偷偷卖点水果的。我妈看到他们想起来他们今天刚在小区群里说有香蕉卖就想买。老板娘摸出她藏在购物袋里的香蕉,购物袋最上层还盖着报纸,然后开始称重,期间本来蹲在地上的老板站起了身左右走动望风……我妈问老板要不要这么夸张,老板就说第一次警告,第二次就要罚款了,那群警察来得比风还快……我妈说起她刚刚看到警车停在那家蛋糕店前,水果店老板娘感叹居然还这么大胆,开灯肯定会被罚款的……唉要不是香蕉不禁放,我们也不想冒险来摆摊,明天开始又要静默。
听得我怪难受的,买奶茶要靠观察和暗号,卖蛋糕要被查,买卖水果要小心翼翼的,真的就把地下交易一样,我们做错了什么啊要受这种罪。

One of the most common, and probably most enduring, categories of image to emerge from the war in Ukraine has been what has become known as the "jack in the box" image: a destroyed Russian tank, its turret blown completely off its hull.

Tank turrets are HEAVY. It takes a really big explosion to lift one up off the hull and into the air. So why is this image so common? Why are Russian tanks popping like a jack in the box?

Let's talk about it! ( 🧵 ​)

I feel like , as in the precise manner in which content is recommended to users, should be considered speech made *by* the platform, for which does not apply. But algorithms also depend on user content that Section 230 does apply on. Furthermore it would be hard to define an "algorithm": is Mastodon's chronological sort an ? So how should algorithms be regulated?

But anyway, is still much better than nothing:

researchers should realize that most public ActivityPub instance admins WILL resolve concerns WHEN appropriately informed. Treating large public instances as if they are malware domains is not only futile for the security issue itself, but also discriminatory: first, this is guilt by association; second, if you insist, then why do other popular platforms get a pass when they fare much worse in terms of malware occurrences and resolution?

Dear open source users,

If the author of your favorite open source app has announced they stopped developing and supporting the app (because they're frustrated and possibly burned out), please don't suggest they do more free work so that you can continue using the app.
Instead, consider thanking them for their past work and let them know that you enjoyed their app.

Regards,
another open source developer
