The Browser War 2020

Since the mid 90’s the browser war has raged. Netscape, Microgarbage, advent of webkit, etc. Well now the war is in the courts using CDM, and DRM to control copyright. Apparently now the Licensing of this content protection is going to allow for the restriction of the client software you can use to access this protected data.

Mu4e Goodies Addon

While searching around github today I came across a plugin for mu4e that is bringing mail closer to what I had with mutt. I switched away from mutt to bring all mail into emacs (spacemacs must have my Vim bindings). mu4e handles maildir and multiple account very well. As well as using Xapian to index the mail, making it’s searching extremely fast. I was missing Tagging though. Which brings me to mu4e-goodies There are two repos in github so make sure to check out the linked repo that belongs to panjie.

Leftist Violent Entitled Unfit To Breath

I am really getting sick of this circus. The “left”, “liberal”, “democrat”, or whatever they are called. Narrative brainwashed repeaters of non-truisms. I just read Dennis Prager’s Article on why the left is entitled to ignore decency. and I have a few questions. In the Picture there are people with signs and shirts with statements like. “Women strike back”.. seems to me to be a first strike scenario here. “We will not be silent”.

Warwick Tuning Key

So This Happened

SO! I was practicing last night and started the session as I always do by tuning. A string was a bit flat so I started to increase the tension, and nothing… so I released tension to tighten back into the proper 440 A. and the string falls out of the bridge. What The ‘Fargin Bastages’? Yea after attempting to restring the pin falls out of the tuning key. AAAAAH NO!
