ffmpeg's drawtext filter's handling of fonts where it only opens one specific file directly even if you specify by name instead of using the normal fontconfig fallback mechanism is homophobic. no i will not be elaborating

(no i am not saying this because i just picked one up, i've been doing this since a before nag dialogs became a thing and still hate that there's no acceptable solution on my phone yes i'm not gonna mitm all my own traffic)

is there such a thing as a cookie whitelist extension that allows you to be granular about which cookies from a domain? mine does not. say for example unfortunatelyusefulsite.com has two, TRACKING_ID and GDPR_ACCEPT_CLICKED. it's probably not that trivial for every site but maybe there are some it would work on.

*sends an email* phew, i think that's enough work for the day

bad writing has infected my brain for the day, better only write code and not document anything

i need one of those neural-network upscalers, but honestly i'm not sure even that would have been able to do much with 15fps 240p FLV

Sartre on anti-semitism 

“Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.”

I find myself coming back to this quote a lot lately.
