So yeah, there's reasons Enlightenment never really took off. https://what.thedailywtf.com/t/enlightened/8795

Fascinating and horrifying. Had to steel myself to read to the end, really.

Looking for a solid source on these numbers for nodes. https://imgur.com/EL0zHRe Bitcoin apparently has 2% of the nodes it had two years ago. Hashpower is staying up, but it's very centralised.

This is as good a time as many to remind: We have just about as much reason to expect GitHub will stay nice as we had with SourceForge.

I can sympathize. I often have to calculate years in deciding whether to bring up examples. (I try to avoid anything from the '80s and earlier, and soon I will have to start penalizing '90s.)

Filezilla too.
 
It appears that +SourceForge took over the control of the 'GIMP for Windows' account and is now distributing an ads-enabled installer of GIMP. They also locked out original owner of the account, Jernej Simončič, who has been building the Windows versions of GIMP for our project for years.

So far they haven't replied to provide explanations. Therefore, we remind you again that GIMP only provides builds for WIndows via its official Downloads page.
Source for version 2.8 (Stable). GIMP releases available from gimp.org and its mirrors contain the source code and have to be compiled in order to be installed on your system. For instructions, how to build GIMP from source code, please see this page.

But of course there is, they're attacking so many projects they need multiple fake users to do it. Holy crap.

If you have your photos stolen by @MailOnline, here's how to get the money they owe you. HT +Rayner Lucas 
The Daily Mail stole my photos, and this is what I did to get paid. Here's what you do when someone steals your photos, or uses them without permission.

Has anyone else noticed Google Plus no longer has a posting mechanism from the GMail window? On my personal GMail it's no longer linked from the app cluster button (though it still is on my work GMail).

I'm seeing it as Google backing down on the ludicrous "integrate everything with Plus" scheme that got everyone pissed off.

What instrument was the bassline from Electronic "Getting Away With It" made with? Can't work it out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSfjtdnUsls

On Firefox, switch on the hidden privacy.trackingprotection.enabled config option and browse 40% faster.

May affect some cross-site logins (but you should be able to add exceptions).
