I would like to present one incredible Y2K aesthetic I witnessed at HARD-OFF today, I was in awe

#Mozilla #Firefox now uses a #Darkpattern to get users to enable #DoH.

I think it is not the first annoying ad for some Mozilla related service, e.g., they have a very obvious ad for pocket and since Firefox 70 for their password app #Lockwise as well.

It seems so incredibly quaint and simple to me now. At the time in college, I remember being a bit overwhelmed with all the details.

Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. Take time to check in with friends and family, give them a hug to remind them they are loved. Mental illnesses can affect anyone, just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it should be ignored. Help break the societal stigma around mental health!

While not my mood today, this probably fits for some of you. :borglove: Stay strong.
