The house next door is vacant, empty and dark, and yet still contains a device that sounds a very loud BEEP BEEP alarm every five seconds or so.

Bored on a Sunday afternoon? Try occupying your mind with fun mental puzzle games, such as, "If I died right now, how long would it be before anyone found me?"

Alternatively, try to find any way at all to not play this game.

Remember the old days when you didn't have to sign up to have your engagement manipulated by a corporation in order to have friends?

why would anyone not like the Cocteau Twins? what did they ever do to you?

Still not sure what this thing is but it's got a keyboard now.

Keyboard masto: if I wanted to build my own keyboard, what's a good starting point for that? Assume I know nothing about the process.

So it looks like neither Firefox nor Chromium are accessible under GNOME (silence on the screen reader). What’s worse, it doesn’t appear that Overview mode is accessible (tested on Pop!_OS). You cannot use the search on it (e.g., type software – the s disabled speech).

Does anyone know where these issues are being discussed?

Is there a good list of infosec blogs that are less business-oriented and more maker/breaker/hacker focused?

I need to stop searching eBay for things that I won't be able to afford. This is the model I saw in a shop as a kid and wanted really bad. I touched one once.

Imagine this scenario: you're on a road trip with a few mates - one of whom is slightly annoying but kinda fun. You snapped at them this morning when you were tired.

You stopped for fuel a while back, and after cruising along for an hour or so you suddenly realise that the slightly annoying mate isn't in the car. You wonder what to say. For a second you consider saying nothing. You don't think anyone else has noticed.

Well, that road trip represents human culture and that friend is dubstep.
