I'm currently listening to the vendor pitch so I know what they've heard already.

The vendor is leaning heavily on how mobile use is mostly apps vs browser. True, vendor. BUT. Ah they break down that maybe 75% of that is entertainment. IF the app offered anything like content vs. simply services, I might buy into it.

Mastodon is teaching me that maybe web apps on mobile aren't too bad

Today's challenge: meeting with folks who are excited about a new app to explain that the mobile version of this old website we're updating will actually do all these things. And doesn't cost an extra $32,000. Or make people install an app.

It’s only got a short wiki article unfortunately. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Na it’s called the natural bears classification system, which tickles me.

Tonight I learned the geek code was preceded by the bear code and I should be sleeping, but an entire new world has been opened and I am fascinated. And that that was based on how star and galaxy systems were classified…

Thrift stores and second hand stores are awesome. We bought some pyrex bowls and a large crockpot for . Used stuff is the best stuff.

LB, been meaning to read the CYBREMONDAY/CYBRE MANIFESTO and all these boosts mean I finally did. @kibi that was extremely powerful. Thank you.

this Gizmodo "The House that Spied On Me" writeup is a really good read. gizmodo.com/the-house-that-spi

it's not your average "oh god internet of things." although that should be everyone's takeaway from any internet of things article.

Backwards compatibility!

This is a big one for me. I love our digital history. I view backwards compatibility as a *very* good thing.

But it's also ruining computers.

We get stuck dealing with yesterday's short sighted decisions. We get stuck making sure that our new hardware is saddled with the technical debt of our old software.

This introduces additional complexity, and additional security problems, and additional losses of performance.

Basically, many computers do not prioritize the User, resulting in a negative experience.

This is true both in Performance, and in Security.

So when I say "computers are bad" I mean "certain aspects of modern computers lead to an overall negative user experience." which is mostly the same thing.

Accidentally bad:

Windows 10 constantly indexes my hard drive, and does it so much that it actively impact performance, and will likely reduce the life of my drives.

Windows 10 automatically installs updates (which is good, ish) but doesnt' give me a choice about the timing of those installations. Windows decides when windows will download updates (actively hurting my overall user experience.)

Now, let's couple that with the actually malicious, and the accidentally bad.

Actually malicious: Windows 10 is a clusterfuck of privacy issues, and each of those privacy issues is also a security and a performance issue.

Apple and Microsoft are pushing users to only install software from their store, where they control who is allowed in, and how much we charge. (Pushing more people to use web apps instead, introducing more performance and security issues.)

Theory: Since a polygon can have an infinite number of sides, that means any word ending in "gon" is effectively a specific type of polygon.

I wonder how many sides a dragon has. :thaenkin:
