Ok, maybe it's time to ditch ? It's been working fine for me on NixOS/KDE/Plasma with Wayland for months now -- until today.

Today it has a nice shiny new interface, and refuses to let me share my screen -- it pops up a window listing a dozen Linux distros (not including NixOS) and says I'm not using a supported OS.

@ericmann Hmm maybe just lightning striking twice? Wonder if there was some sort of collision?

I just checked my Good2Go password, which I've had for several years, it's not showing in Bitwarden's check for breached passwords

Listening to hiddenbrain.org/podcast/do-les while building out a site... So much of what we do with development is taking stuff out, making things simpler.

Anybody else dealing with a DDOS targeting search pages? We've been playing whack-a-mole with new AI bots appearing and scanning a bunch of our sites, but today I have one site that's getting ~260 requests per minute on different search results... from 260 different IP addresses, 7 different user agent strings (of which only 2 identify themselves as bots, accounting for 12 of those 260 requests).

Was just reading tonsky.me/blog/centering/ , which does a great job of explaining why getting things aligned on a web site can take soooo much time!

@nixCraft @osm_fr I wonder how much of Amazon's $4B investment in Anthropic ( aboutamazon.com/news/company-n ) they are recouping in extra EC2 bandwidth charges from all the website scraping ClaudeBot is doing?

@nixCraft This explains a lot -- several sites we manage have been hit by extremely unfriendly ClaudeBot scrapes in the past week. We've been putting in rate limiters that help -- but I like the idea of poisoning 😀

In Little Rock AR, hitting the road to go an hour north for a longer ... Sunny skies, looks like we nailed it for the best weather in this part of the eclipse path!

@mortendk @pcambra We never left those days! Not to flex here, but we've been doing this for a couple decades now -- self-hosting all our systems using open source software, building custom where there are gaps.

Even email -- everyone says you shouldn't self-host email, but we've been doing it for 21 years.

Mastodon's about the only thing we're not self-hosting -- happy to contribute for somebody else to manage that!

@symfonystation @ultimike I've found one great use for Gutenberg in Drupal: Writing proposals.

It's really good at reusable blocks, as well as cut and paste from one page to another.

Things I used to do in word processors I can now drop into our Drupal-based CRM.

Otherwise, Gutenberg in Drupal is mostly a big "Meh."

12 years ago I first encountered drupal.org/project/drupal/issu, an issue that made some 7 content not appear for certain users. I spent several days diagnosing and coming up with a fix, several weeks advocating for the correct solution.

And this week, that fix finally got committed to core, to be released in 10.3.0!
