A Longish Post about Friend Requests And Reading The Damn Profile 

In case the acronyms are not familiar to you:

  • EEE is "Embrace / Extend / Extinguish" - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embrace, - Not only is it a strategy used in tech, but has been used by conquerors throughout history. I mean, did you really think Europe spoke Latin because they liked it better?
  • PoS is Piece of Shit. Not Point of Sale (though the two do tend to overlap when you create a Venn Diagram).

I am upset by the layoffs at Mozilla.

I have also been waiting for when my insistence on Firefox only on my systems would become akin to being an Opera holdout circa 10 (or more) years ago. I still hope that doesn't happen.

I'm disgusted that we were so distracted by hating Microsoft/IE that we gave the keys to the internet to Google, who was flying under the flag of being Open Source Friendly long enough to EEE us like every other PoS tech giant.

250 of us have been laid off from Mozilla this morning.

If you have openings or can offer assistance, please use the #MozillaLifeboat tag!

So the thing that I knew would happen if I tried getting into SDR is starting to happen: Gear Lust

The things I could do with this... but you know... I don't have that mind of money laying about.
