My main source of morning news ( news.ycombinator.com/ ) has been down since the morning.

5+ hours now.

Their IP is not even pinging, so it looks like the server is having a bad day...

Now twitter is blocking "search.noc.social" from being shared there.

Just gives this random error of "something went wrong".

If it could not get any worse...

Lesson of the day:

1- Never block one of the CDN IP addresses on your server.

search.noc.social should be back online properly now.

🤦 🤦 🤦

-Ad by Microsoft to try Edge.
-First result pointing to the Edge download.

Not even a bit biased. And somehow they wonder why they can't catch up to Google...

Using the radioactive decay present in a banana to generate random numbers. Even if you don't appreciate the math/code/hardware behind it, you can appreciate the aesthetic of this Arduino-based generator and banana holder.

"Gradually, Garland came to the same realization that many of her fellow educators have reached in the past four years: the concept of file folders and directories, essential to previous generations’ understanding of computers, is gibberish to many modern students."
