wkhtmltopdf.org/ is a great little tool, it is a command line utility that converts HTML to PDF using WebKit. The result is you get PDFs that exactly look like the web pages, and because it can do full CSS, you can use @media only print etc to fine tune stuff.

E.g. compare gkayaalp.com/vc.html vs. gkayaalp.com/vc.pdf, it's way better than what pandoc can do, plus pandoc botches the tables in that page. And I can use media queries to add navigation links only on the web page. The command line is very simple, see this makefile: gitlab.com/cadadr/cadadr.gitla

"I do not wish to join a club that would accept me as it's member" can be heard from the living room housing the super entitled, or from the office belonging to a math department's goofy set theory professor.

Does anyone remember a website that was published a few months/years ago showcasing an UI based around Anki-like cards to compose documents with?

Me: "I'm so glad that two factor authentication is based on consistent open standards so we don't have to put up with some bullshit proprietary centralization of it."

Duo: *exists*

Me: "Darn"

I love OOP. OOP is when you have lots of methods that do nothing but wrap a call to another method. The more layers you have to dig through to figure out what the fuck is going on, the more OOP your code is :)

I am loving the outrage in the US around Trump's campaign pre-checking checkboxes in donation newsletters, leading to people being tricked into donating every week or every month, instead of once.

At some point somebody will point out that it's the same kind of dark pattern that Microzon Facegoopple had been using for years to trick us into signing away our privacy online.

Shocking!

@tinyrabbit I remember there was a VPN like solution back in the day where you pay a fixed fee per month for an IP address and X speed to get around these problems. I can't remember the name of it, but if it's still out there it was very simple to setup their client and serve from that machine.

If it no longer exists, we need to make it
