The more spotify wrapup posts I see the more and more I get disgusted by their design. Almost as if they gave a 5 year old some buckets of paint...

Got to love it when it turns out the web api you're trying to use represents booleans in json as strings rather than actual booleans πŸ™„ . If something is a boolean, make it a god damn boolean.. Not a string saying true or false.

As my firefox profile somehow half corrupted today and I can't be bothered to fix it, I decided to start fresh. Lost a ton of tabs and what not in the process though, time to reconsider syncing of tabs and what not, anyone happens to know a selfhostable alternative to the selfhostable mozilla sync server?

Scammers are onto me today it seems. Missed call from India on one SIM card. And a "Your package is arriving today" text message on my other one, with of course the browser yelling "Deceptive site ahead" on the link right away, lmao.

A few years from now I'll probably still mix up the German words "See" and "Meer". Mostly because in Dutch they mean the exact opposite.. As in "meer" is a lake, and "zee" (pronounced basically the same as "See") is the ocean.. Whereas it's opposite with German πŸ™„

So, yesterday I realized that Rocket League now free for Nintendo Switch. Decided to download it and finally give it an actual try. As I booted up I was greeted with a "Please sign in with your Epic Account". While just reading this out my girlfriend accurately predicted that I was gonna close and uninstall the game right away.

I recently wanted to enable respawn anchors in the overworld of my minecraft SMP server. I made a write-up about why and how I ended up accomplishing this

This was their entire response btw... On the one hand I'm surprised to get a reply at all... Even more surprised to get an answer within 24 hours..

So I actually emailed them with feedback. They were nice enough to answer with a picture, which highlights on it's own what a terrible UX their website has...

yeah linux is cool but does it have ransomware built in

Recently was already complaining about websites having super shitty multi language implementation.. Oh boy did I find another one.. redirects me to (I'm in Switzerland mind you) and there seems like no option at all to switch to any other language. With of course the nice side effect that despite them offering all episodes to watch for free, they're all in German. Guess I'm pirating the special anyway...

Guess I'm building this in a container or something.. Apparently wants me to install npm, nope, nope, nope

So I'm currently building to give it a try.. The rust portion has 317 dependencies.. Why are we bashing npm for this constantly but everybody seems to be ignoring this? πŸ€”

I have actually seen way worse. It wouldn't be the first time a site defaults to French, because hey you're located in Switzerland after all right...

It's so hilarious and sad at the same time how badly modern websites support the Accept-Language header. Despite my browser reporting ONLY en_US. Google Maps will happily give me German (de_DE even, I just checked it's not even de_CH) very likely just based on my rough location.

Mozilla consistently bragging about Firefox having fingerprint resistance.. And then not allowing you to disable the timezone spoofing aspect of it is the dumbest thing ever. It will always report UTC and the only workaround is to disable fingerprint resistance all together... Why is this still not fixed ffs
