Pinned toot

To pin…
Around mid-summer 2017 I experienced a sudden and rapid loss of eyesight, so that I a year later could not tell how many fingers the doctor was holding up at arm-length distance.
Therefore:

Please don't be disappointed if I don't follow your account even if what you post is obviously in line with my interests. I simply can't follow all the accounts I previously would have or they all become useless. As for pure "follow-back", I never ever did that.

I always welcomed tips for content others thought I might have use for, as long as you allow me to find that not the case... without having to justify it.

I may not see messages you send me and that may not be malice. ;-P

Today, a strike was held at 15 ports by the Swedish Dockworkers' Union during two hours for their right to represent their 1300 members, majority at the ports, instead of being forcibly "represented" by a union they're not members of, followed by an employer lockout up to 17 hours.

The MAGA-kids at Covington Catholic High School did actually get a good education:
They have just been taught that racism isn't acceptable even if by mob peer-pressure and if they don't reject it, they'll be rejected alongside the "prestige" of their fancy school, now famously garbage.

RT @vmsalama@twitter.com [White House reporter for Wall Street Journal]:
President Trump recognizes Venezuelan National Assembly President Juan Guaido As interim president of Venezuela

The opposition leader of Venezuela has sworn itself in as President.
USA is expected to "recognize" GuaidΓ³ as Head of State.

I hereby swear myself in as President of Myself and expect USA to recognize that too, as apparently anything goes now.

A port's employer representative was complaining on TV "I don't understand why they specifically target THIS port more than others [bohoo, blah, blah] ...we have the most Swedish Dockworkers' Union members in the country here...", yeah. That could be why. :-D
They want the union they're members of to be allowed to represent them.

The web browser Pale Moon released version 28.3.1,
which e.g. adds detection of Captive Portals for those often changing to/between networks with that requirement.

No entity that claims to be for any level of democracy can at the same time be for there being a cost to using Public Transport,
as that cost in some cases completely stops poor people from equal participation in the ruling of their own lives,
as well as, you know... having to choose between buying food or affording going to work.

Apparently, if you combine Intel's USB 3.0 hardware and their drivers on Windows with a USB 3.0 device,
you have a device that will remind you on every connection that if you had connected the device to a USB 3.0 port it would have performed faster... and then downgrade itself to USB 2.0.
That might be usable to someone, but I'd more likely call it... I dunno, false advertising and fraud?

Just so you know...
when I translate articles or such and just cite the source by abbreviation, I always save the sources as a "hidden annotation" to myself associated to the main post, using this technique soc.ialis.me/@b9AcE/1008951525 that I found, so if you really want to have the original language sources, I'll have them if you just reply to the post in question (so I can find it)... unless I failed to follow my method of course.

An example, from elsewhere...

Same practice also previously reported by major media when a famous studio-owning rapper from Nigeria was denied visiting visa for Sweden, to visit the Swedish wife.
