If you use Sailor Moon's trademark phrase In the name of the Moon, I will punish you - or any variation thereof - you will get banned.  No appeal.

1 I've been running Kallithea under Docker on my Synology NAS for quite a while, and it's been fast and stable for my small-scale lives-behind-a-firewall needs. Best feature is that it handles both Git and Mercurial repos, since I strongly prefer the latter.

2 I've been using Firefox for years as my primary browser, because it wasn't Google's, and Edge was slow.  As soon as Edgemium came out I switched to it, because it's not Google's, but also because, other than the privacy issue, it's a better browser.  Well, and the Brandon Eich thing.

5 Life hack for lots of bookmarks in Chrome and Edge: Put your mouse pointer over the first bookmark in the list, then hit the up arrow.  It scrolls upwards to the last bookmark.

The scroll buttons on screen don't do that, because [see chorus].

6 Remember when IE stored favorites as files?  Yeah, that was great.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
