» Bill Maher, Faulted for Booking Milo Yiannopoulos, Takes Credit for His Fall. I'd never heard of that dumbass Milo before he was on the show (and I was confused on why he was even there, he's not a smart or well-spoken as the normal guests) but I'm glad to see the repercussions against Milo after so I'd call that a net win.     #

» Sierra Trading Post’s Photo Contest is No Bargain. How does this rights-grab keep happening in photo contests? This crap has been going on for years and yet it seems like companies have to keep getting slapped down for this.     #

» Stalker's bolt. Every time I watch one of his videos I learn something new. I knew you could make a bolt in a lathe (I've done it) and just mill the head of the bolt, but I love how he reverses it and makes the bolt in the mill then uses the lathe to cut the head. I especially like the format of this videos, I can learn without having to hear him speak (and considering I don't speak Russian it's better this way...)     #


» I've been thinking about resurrecting my old physical Franklin Planner but I don't want to deal with refill packs that give me things I don't actually want like address book pages. I'm also not a fan of the color schemes they are using on the pages, so I've been looking into printing my own. There's a surprising number of DIY templates you can download and print on your own, as well as some places offering Word files so you can actually edit them. I'm going to end up making my own (I have it in my mind how I want them to look) but these are a couple great starting places: Personal Planner - Free Printables, D*I*Y Planner Kits, D*I*Y Templates (user contributed), and D*I*Y Planner 3.0     #

» Mozilla adds working HTML5 Video autoplay blocking to Firefox. This actually happened a year and a half ago but not everyone is aware that you can edit your about:config to force the setting (it's media.autoplay.enabled and you need to set it to "false").     #

» This is Why People Fear the ‘Internet of Things’. My current track is to have my router run an OpenVPN server and then deny my cameras and other IOT devices access to the Internet via firewall. That way I can VPN into my house and access everything but nothing speaks outbound without my permission.     #
