The Internet Archive Covid Thing

I meant to post this a while back. Was pretty impressed with how the Internet Archive handled this when it all started; turned it into a promo asking people to help out and donate no less, and I'm sure people did!

The site's been a bit slow, probably way more overloaded than usual, but it seems they're coping. No better time to support the Archive than now.

Donated this year too btw.

A busy man has time to do everything.

A Day With Wim, 1998

This dude's just fascinating. The tale of someone who really overcame tragedy; found a new path. A real role model.

Just started following his guided breathing exercise here too. It's good stuff! Give it a chance if you can, and don't stress about the pace, you don't need to exhale completely. Get into the rhythm. Focus. Feel at peace.

Imagine Eating A Clock...

Imagine eating a clock... That'd be time consuming.

That Slum Life

Yelawolf starting a movement and a documentary! Who would've known.

The New Firefox Megabar

So FireFox recently updated their address bar, to go from this:

The Address Bar this massive thing:

The Megabar

And I don't like it.

Also notice the Facebook link, displayed here even though I don't use Facebook. I haven't logged in in over two years now, and even when I did it was rarely, for work-related dues only. I don't have it in my bookmarks. I haven't been there recently. I do stumble onto FB profiles and groups occasionally, but not often enough that it should be at the top of my browsing history. I wonder if they're getting paid for this...

The update notes say this about the new bar:

The Update Note

But you know what? I'm not using a laptop. I have a wide screen and precision mouse.

The update also hides https:// and www prefixes from URLs in the dropdown, and as a developer I really like to see those.

So, if you for any similar or other purpose also feel a need to disable this unnecessary new monstrosity, you can do so by typing about:config in the address bar, accepting the risk, and searching for browser.urlbar.​update1, toggling this, and optionally other options related to it, to false.

The https thing is separate apparently. You'll need to toggle browser.urlbar.trimURLs to toggle that.

That's it. All like it should be, though I wonder if the earlier version was really this wide after all...
