@puresick well, that's just half the story. They will replace it with something under a different name but many of the same properties.

This weekend my daughter went to continue reading an ebook she has available to her from her public elementary school on the Epic Reading Platform getepic.com/sign-in

She got an error message saying that the book was only available on school days and to read on the weekend she would need to subscribe for $9.99/month.

Wir freuen uns sehr über das große Interesse, das schnelltesttest.de hervorgerufen hat. Trotzdem wollen wir nochmal betonen: Wir sind nur eine Gruppe von ehrenamtlichen Menschen. Danke für die Blumen, aber wir brauchen staatliche IT-Kompetenz.

Oftentimes when companies say "GDPR requires us to do this" the more honest phrasing would be "we're about to do stuff we're not really supposed to do, but now we can get fined for it, will you check this box pretty please?"

„In August 2021, NortonLifeLock said it had reached an agreement to acquire Avast, another longtime free antivirus product that also claims to have around 500 million users. It remains to be seen whether Avast Crypto will be the next brilliant offering from NortonLifeLock.“

This just gets more and more ridiculous.

It seems that the company NortonLifeLock has some scheme planned for this:

„500M Avira Antivirus Users Introduced to Cryptomining“

a) This has been forwarded to me.
b) I'm glad they are open about it.
c) This is precisely the thing that nobody ever thinks would happen to them. But eventually it happens enough to be a problem.

Simply: if collecting data is not neccessary - do not collect the information. If you do need the information, look into automatically discarding it as soon as possible.

Git Worktree is awesome! 🎉

It helps you manage multiple worktrees, which are basically multiple folders attached to the same repository.

You can imagine it a bit like copy pasting your project folder, but with some additional management features.

I am currently using it to manage multiple PRs, which requires its own compiled C++ binary each. With `git-worktree` I do not need to recompile that dependency each time I switch the branch!

What in the actual f**k? netzpolitik.org/2022/urheberre

Wie absurd ist das denn? Meine Solidarität haben die @ubernauten jedenfalls... Man kann übrigens im Webinterface Geld an die Kaffeekasse spenden, nur so nebenbei.
