(yes i did this gag on twitter a few years back but it feels like time to revive it, with an illustration this time!)

#Athens is full of cats. I mean there must be millions of cats. I always thought it's because people love and feed them. TIL they are protected city property and are taken care by the city with help from volunteers.

And it's illegal to take away their food.

#IPv6 is the metric system of the Internet. Once you get it, it's way easier, but nobody wants to upend things to use it on the daily.

Suggestion for the compiler devs out there: add a " FIXME [date]" directive that prints a reminder if the specified date has been reached.

I have a folder marked "coronavirus advice" which somehow ended up being mainly cat/kitten photos

A web developer falls asleep in a train. As the train goes and each car's wheels make the characteristic double thud, the developer has a nightmare:

@foxwitch @Elizafox If continuous power consumption is a concern, could add a simple temperature control to it.
Then you can tune a trade-off between temperature and power consumption, e.g. if you run it off the main vehicle battery or have an additional battery that is capacity limited.
Note that with the simple peltier setups you can at most establish a temperature differential of around 20ºC - realistically, at which point it will be running all the time.

Strange companies lying around in ponds distributing codecs is no way to choose an industry standard

@M0YNG @nivex TBH the simplest thing to do is "DROP all incoming TCP connections" and is the same a NAT-cum-firewall router does with IPv4. UDP is similar.

@M0YNG @nivex NAT is not a firewall, most NAT setups contain a firewall. But I guess you knew that?
So it generally boils down to "In IPv4 there is a ready made non-introspected process applied to most things, in people freak out because it looks different and is named differently".

@s0 more powwwah! 😄
Or as it goes in amateur radio circles:
"QRO, because life is too short for QRP!"

So my hot tub app was updated yesterday. looked good, they added flexible scheduling, multiple timers, daily repeats etc.
Only one problem. it no longer switches the tub on!
