Ughhhhhh, just logging in in the morning and seeing the tab header go to 'Inbox (27)' is awful.

+1 for airvpn. I've never had any issues, port forwarding works flawlessly, and you can get some incredible deals if you buy 3 years at a time during a sale.

Say what you will, I had more fun with the item servers being down than I have in many years. It felt like an unplanned community event or something to me, shit was awesome.

(Point taken that it literally only happened due to Valve being negligent though)

Me vs my ISP

So I was looking into getting port forwarding set up and I realized just how closed-off the internet has gotten since the early days. It's concerning. It used to be you would buy your own router and connect it to the internet, and that router would control port-forwarding and what-have-you....

I use Kagi too - they have a feature I haven't seen before where you can basically optimize your own SEO. You can uprank or downrank any given website to varying degrees based on how much of that site you want to see in your future search results (I use this a lot for game wikis that have since migrated off of Fandom etc, but the stale Fandom page always shows up first in google search).

They're also working on a feature to warn you which articles are paywalled directly from the search result, which I will use the hell out of.

They also have something they call Lenses, which are essentially search profiles that emphasize certain types of results (programming lens upranks stackoverflow, github, and API docs for instance).

All in all I've been extremely pleased with the quality of the product and the directions they're exploring in. And being able to easily chat up the devs in discord doesn't hurt either.

Since becoming an adult it has become increasingly obvious to me that early high-school level stuff is impossibly complex for a significant chunk of the population.

+1 for MAM, both their community and collection is excellent.

Yooo, real life cyberpsychosis just dropped

Got my badge today as well! They’ve massively improved the registration process from last year, great experience this time.

The colors on that are kinda confusing. 6tn years is yellow, but 2k years is green?

The slippery slope argument is not always a fallacy. The strength of a slippery slope argument relies on the ability to show that the initial action will actually lead to the predicted outcome. The fallacy comes in when connections are drawn between unrelated concepts - an easy example of this is the argument that legalizing abortion will lead to the legalization of murder. In this case, I think it’s pretty likely that making a certain item legal to steal will pave the way for more items to be legal to steal in the future. After all, who decides which items should fall under that law? I’m sure there will be plenty of people with very strong, differing opinions on the topic.
