  • Workplace Productivity: Are You Being Tracked? - The New York Times — Across industries and incomes, more employees are being tracked, recorded and ranked. What is gained, companies say, is efficiency and accountability. What is lost?
  • Archive.org: The Rise of the Worker Productivity Score — Now digital productivity monitoring is also spreading among white-collar jobs and roles that require graduate degrees. Many employees, whether working remotely or in person, are subject to trackers, scores, “idle” buttons, or just quiet, constantly accumulating records. Pauses can lead to penalties, from lost pay to lost jobs.
  • Stof's thoughts on tabs or Spaces — Essentially, tabs are idealistic and would win any argument not based on real world 'not caring' of humans, so in reality spaces win, but how many spaces is a better question! I wonder what the audience would say about 2 spaces?

  • Researchers Find Vulnerabilities in Software Underlying Discord, Microsoft Teams, and Other Apps — Aaditya Purani, one of the researchers who found these vulnerabilities, said that “regular users should know that the Electron apps are not the same as their day-to-day browsers,” meaning they are potentially more vulnerable.

To try and describe what a Mario and Luigi situation is will put me in a real Mario and Luigi situation. It’s not nefarious, but it sure is something. Keep up the good work, and here’s to Sun Microsystems and Java Duke. Gone, but never forgotten.

The EU is glorious. 4 spaces in Python, 2 in JavaScript. Vim is a way of working, I use vim shortcuts in everything from text editors to browsers to spreadsheets.

regarding electron apps. for example there is a package called discord_arch_electron , which patches discord with latest electron to work with . which is a nice workaround , however does not solves the main issue .
