Legs Edition

  • Kanye West is not buying Parler after all.  (Axios)

    Bullet dodged.  For both parties, but after today, particularly for Parler.
    Ye has just around 55,000 followers on Parler, compared to 18.5 million on Instagram and zero on Twitter.
    Oops.


  • The Ikea desk legs I needed for my main office, that were out of stock for weeks, came back in for days, and then went out of stock again, are back in stock.

    I ordered 35.  I think I need 31 - maybe fewer if I use fixed drawers rather than the mobile ones, since you can mount the desktop directly onto the drawer units.  Since the legs are $4 each and they've been blocking my plans for thousands of dollars worth of furniture, I don't exactly mind if I end up with a few spares.

    (The longer desks - they come in 120, 140, and 200 cm lengths - recommend an extra leg in the middle, hence the odd number.)

1 Rust is safe.  Also, when I build anything requiring rust on my FreeBSD system(s) it downloads and installs something like half a gigabyte of "crates" that do . . . things.  Let us see: termcolor-1.1.3.crate.  Yes, that has certainly been audited for security issues.  shell-escape-0.1.5.crate, I'm sure that couldn't be malware hiding in an unaudited package that gets installed automatically by some random package.  I mean, it's just nodejs or npm by another name.

2 "Twitter is planning on finding a way to circumvent the 30% fee that Apple charges"
Amazon Kindle simply removed the ability to buy books from the app.  Twitter should be able to bounce people to a web browser.

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