Got tired of waiting to select which OS to boot, so I made a physical switch

school 

In school, they used to say “You have to be able to solve these math problems in your sleep!”

Now I have an alarm clock that asks me to solve math problems before it will stop ringing, and I sometimes solve them without ever waking up.

Thanks, school…

COVID-19 

Google: “Get vaccinated now! There is a free COVID-19 vaccine center with available spots just a few kilometers from you!”

Me: 😺

Google: “Oh look, it's in France!”

Me: 😾

Commercial games 

Me: “Let me sync my Sims 4 save games. I just briefly need to launch Sims 4 so it creates the folders, so I can set up sync from the machine I used to play on.”
Sims: “There is an update available! Do you want to install it?”
Me: “No, I just want to briefly launch and exit you, we can update later.”
Sims: “Ok, I'm not gonna even try to start then.”

COVID-19, law 

One of the more annoying parts of the pandemic is lawyers discussing problems that are purely medical, and coming to weird conclusions without having any idea what they're talking about.

WTF ... Mozilla had always running JavaScript inside PDFs disabled by default.

But now with FF 88 this option is ENABLED by default. Which means, if a PDF file contains JS it will run without any user interaction. What can possibly go wrong?

To disable this:

about:config
pdfjs.enableScripting --> false

# FF 78.10 ESR doesn't include this option and still blocks JS in PDFs by default. Just tested.

COVID-19, vax study, menstruators needed 

Heyo! If you are a person who menstruates and you have received a COVID-19 vaccine, there is a STUDY OPEN NOW to track the side effects associated with menstruation, and how the vaccine affects periods! You can participate here: redcap.healthinstitute.illinoi

It is NICE AND GENDER-AGNOSTIC, all of the language seems to be inclusive, so!

Spread the word if you are comfortable doing so! :)

I hate the limitation of Signal to only connect 5 desktop clients. It's so arbitrary, and I would need more than that.

money 

tbh I didn't even know I was expecting a package

money 

Not a big fan of how the mailman will just randomly show up to your house and ask for 38.90 CHF with exact payment, without you receiving any type of notification of this beforehand…
