This would probably be the equivalent of flag-burning even today. "Sacrilège"! Yet this is exactly where most of us end up, with no hope of escape: "working for some other man" - and yes, truly "one party and another's all the same"...

Even though I strongly believe in things offered for free and without ANY remuneration, I'm enough of a realist to gladly help support people who create things I enjoy through sites like Patreon. What I do NOT believe in though is rewarding aggressively unashamed nag-begging of the worst kind (via ads literally covering half of my screen) from an organization that does zero percent of the work that makes it actually useful (all editors are volunteers who do not get paid) and can already afford to keep its servers online for more than a decade, sitting on piles of cash of epic size, yet keeps asking for more. Daily.

Yes, I'm talking about Wikipedia - specifically, about the Wikimedia Foundation.

I can guarantee they wont see a fucking dime from me within the next couple of decades - if you care to find out exactly why, just read the link below. I promise it will be quite illuminating. In the mean time, just open your AdBlockPlus (you're using it, right?) and add the following line as a "custom filter":

wikipedia.org#div(id=centralNotice)

Peace at last... you can thank me later.

Would you look at these cheeky buggers! One more line to add to the filter:

wikipedia.org#div(id=frbanner3)

Hey, wikifolks, keep at it, y'hear? I can do this all day!

...and now you know why is it always a white fluffy cat that the evil mastermind keeps stroking.

When blatantly stupid shit is savagely mocked and mercilessly ridiculed - I can but heartily approve. Well done, lads...!

It seems 2015 will unavoidably fail to live up to what we were promised, what it was supposed to be. Go on, peruse the list below, see for yourself. See? Yeah, that's right. Where are my self-tying shoes?!? Oh... you mean that's not what you had in mind? Well fine, I'd settle for flying cars too. Oh well - happy new year everyone! :)
Marty and Doc Brown’s 1989 film sequel made some big promises about technology...

+Attila Asztalos Ha ha!  It's actually quite strange - despite being minus 196 Celsius it actually feels warmer than cold water.

Everyone seems to be giving their full attention to a certain French journal these days - well, without taking away from the appropriate seriousness of the situation, here's something else to take your mind off that: #FuckYouFirefox . I've just about had it with the piece of trash this browser became in the recent years. Crashing left and right because of Flash is not even something I bother considering anymore - but how on Earth is it possibly ok to degrade WebGL performance in a brand new tab to "slower than a FUCKING SNAIL" when FF is the only piece of software running on a quad-core PC?!? Of course, once you restart, everything is a-ok. Well, IT'S NOT, YOU FUCKERS! If that's your idea of writing software in 2015, Firefox needs to die in a fire, the sooner the better. Go to hell, Mozilla!

Tech-savvy youth today truly has it harder than children used to in the days of yore - I'd like to see you explain to your kids how is it possible that one can track Santa's journey live on the internet in not one but two places (NORAD and Google), only the two results are... quite different!
After a five-year stint with Google as its official Santa Tracking tech partner, NORAD started working with Microsoft, which now runs the NORAD website and lends its Bing mapping technology to help track Mr. Claus. Not to be outdone, Google has upped its tracking game ever since and now competition with its former partner heats up with each new holiday season.
