While all the idiots are outside hoarding toilet paper. I'm just hoarding more movies towards my hard drive in case internet capacity will become an issue (which I can totally see happening now that we're on lockdown). Suggestions for more movies are welcome :)

Ran into this by accident legit surprised to read that in the Netherlands you'll generally not need permission to take someone their picture and publish it πŸ€”
Extremely happy to live in a country where you even need consent for taking a picture though πŸ˜‚

My wife told me to take a spider out rather than just squash it. Took him down the pub and turns out he's a really nice bloke, Yeah, he's a web designer.

Git is planning to switch to SHA-256 soon. This is all great news, but the best thing is the command to convert an existing repo to the new hash. It reads like a shitpost and gets better with each argument:

She was joking how she could do GDPR requests because she lives in Netherlands while my Swiss girlfriend couldn't because she doesn't live in EU. She didn't get when I laughed directly into her face. Something about stricter privacy laws in Switzerland forever...

TIL, Clearview optout (only available when in a GDPR area or California...) requires you to upload a picture... Something tells me you end up in a dataset labeled as "Doesn't want to be found with this tech".... This is just bad
