When did Google start asking for this to watch age-restricted videos? (And how does having a credit card prove that I'm an adult?)

Today in our "that can't be possible?" series, I got asked to update a script that extracts data from a database and drops a CSV somewhere. It already smells bad enough, but there's more.

There was no script, somebody had just dropped a CSV there once in 2014. The consumer thought they had up to date data while they were reading the same file over and over again.

For 7 years. And nobody realized.

Ich ärger' mich ja doch ziemlich, dass sich der Begriff "sideloading" inzwischen sogar bei Heise etabliert für den völlig normalen Vorgang Software aus beliebiger Quelle zu installieren. Das normalisiert diese krasse Einschränkung und adelt den kaum 10 Jahre alten Sonderweg bei dem man ausschließlich durch einen Store des OS-Anbieters Software installieren kann.

TIL about the `kbd` HTML element:
A semantic element to describe user input, like keyboard shortcuts:

"Although legally not compatible (for copyleft reasons) the #AGPL is very close to the #EUPL (which covers also SaaS). The AGPL is also included in the EUPLv1.2 downstream compatibility list (EUPL Appendix) - therefore the EUPL is compatible with the AGPL: you may distribute under the AGPL a larger derivative work integrating components covered by the EUPL and by the AGPL."

Reading about the EUPL (the European Union Public License). Very cool.

Anyone know off the top of their heads whether it provides the same protections of freedoms for server-side use that AGPL does?

Finally I figured out how Karabiner-Elements works and now I am able to reconfigure these weird macos keyboard mappings as I like.

If you do not know, Karabiner-Elements is an open source application to remap keys and shortcuts. You can do pretty complex stuff with it.

An experiment simulating how text looks for a person with dyslexia.

I like how these kind of experiments try to show you how other people experience things. These can help to show us how important accessible software can be.

Unmentioned is that, although podcasts use RSS, a lot of people discover them through a centralized service like Apple Podcasts, which kind of acts as a podcast search engine. Maybe we need a search engine for RSS feeds?
