I've been dreading this moment.
Those of us who took up "free Gmail for your domain forever" back around 2008 are now faced with "pay us a monthly fee or lose every purchase linked to your account".
There's no ability to migrate apps, media, etc to another account of course. This feels like extortion.
Is it possible to get the ACCC involved in something like this? I have no idea how to navigate something like that.
I made a new little website / gemini capsule:
It's kind of like a non-interactive text adventure set in a small town. Every day it randomly generates changes to the town, so check back every once in a while to find new things. It's isn't super big right now, but I hope to add more places/things/people over time.
(feel free to boost)
Explaination of stackoverflow for nondevelopers thats super accurate
"The trans Pride flag has been planted on the peak of Antarctica’s highest mountain, Vinson Massif, by trans climber Erin Parisi.
Dedicating her achievement to 'the resilience of the trans community' that 'took me in when I had no hope', Parisi said trans people 'showed me that it’s better to be visible and free, than live in self-imposed exile, and that stigma withers when we visibly embrace our truth'"
I received The Humane Interface by Jef Raskin for Christmas. It's amazing, especially if you're feeling fatigued by today's computers. I'm only 50 pages in and I am completely obsessed with his work. Hoping that I too can one day make a really productive system based on Forth. Thanks @neauoire for introducing me to the LEAP key!

I'm one of those weirdos who puts the taskbar at the top of the screen. Doesn't matter what the OS or DE is. KDE: on top. XFCE: on top. Windows 10: on top.
Ran into an issue this morning.
Moving the taskbar to the top in Windows 10:
1. Open the Taskbar Settings.
2. Change location.
Moving the taskbar to the top in Windows 11:
1. Search for the location in Taskbar Settings.
2. You won't find it there.
3. Google the problem.
4. Launch RegEdit.
5. Say, out loud to the empty room around you, "There is no way in hell that I'm going to edit my registry only to move this goddamn taskbar."
But, if you really wanna know how to do it:
Gawd, Microsoft is stoopid.
Verizon's just turned on something they call "Custom Experience", which is tracking everything you do over their connection.
So you want to go into your account, and you'll have to do this on the web because the mobile site just dumps you back to home page, and then Privacy Settings and disable every last switch in there.
