Wordle (no spoilers) 

I don't normally share Wordle results, but this one was fun.

Wordle 413 2/6


I just downloaded Boris Optics to test it out. I decided to murder this crow picture. This is just a quick test with no end-goal in mind, but I like it.

'A Walk on Cullen Beach', watercolour, 58 x 37 cm. A commissioned painting of this lovely snady beach on the Moray Firth coast of northern Scotland. That red coat on the dog was a boon, adding some warm colour to the scene!

@chiasm crypto really is a lot like religion, in that both are designed to separate fools from their money

I'm having challenges working with Lightroom Classic these days, and I have no interest in using Lightroom CC as my daily photo driver.

What is your favourite alternative? I don't need much in the way of functions, but creating/saving preset edits and easy publishing of the final product to folders is essential.

The second is why I can't use Lightroom CC.

I updated the Big Ass Data Broker Opt Out List to add info on new classes of information that Google allows people to remove. And I fixed some typos!

Weird Moiré-like* patterns in this reflexion of a façade in the water of a small stream.

@ifixcoinops I’ve learned two things about community management the hard way:

First, the blast radius of toxic community members is huge and mostly invisible; for every person who speaks up, there are dozens who’ve quietly just left and hundreds of who peeked in, saw what you tolerate and closed that window without a word.

Second: the worst thing your community ignores is what it accepts, and the worst thing your community accepts what it becomes.

⚠️ Avoid #Chromium-based browsers: Websites can detect what addons are installed by fetching their web-accessible resources. Try yourself: z0ccc.github.io/extension-fing

This is yet another possible way of #tracking users all across the internet. However, there's a simple solution: Just use #Firefox.

Since the IDs of Firefox extensions are unique for every user, it is not possible to know or guess the addresses of their web-accessible resources.

I was really depressed for the last two days because I left my ring on the lawn and the crows stole it BC shiny. It's irreplaceable and Akkas gave it to me two years ago so I was devastated. I dredged the pond and used a metal detector all over the lawn but it was gone. But today I cooked the crows bacon in the morning and this afternoon it was returned RIGHT WHERE I LEFT THE BACON!!!!!

My latest book review is up. This time it's the classic gothic ghost story "The Turn of the Screw" by Henry James.

This review contains some of the best writing I have done in years, specifically this sentence:

"This is an unreadable, nonsensical vomitorium."

What could be a better recommendation than that? Go check out the full review here:
