Steam Is Run By Fewer Than 80 Staff, Lawsuit Docs Reveal
  • Pretty amazing that years of effort from massive competitors like Epic and Microsoft haven't managed to crack this. I wonder what they're doing wrong?

    (Ok I lied. I know exactly what they're doing wrong and there's zero chance of them changing.)

  • Or meet and cheese
  • The real key is to get 3 different cheeses that look different. They don't have to be fancy cheeses. They just have to be obviously different cheeses.

    Likewise, get some salami and another meat.

  • Google Maps tests new pop-up ads that give you an unnecessary detour (Update)
  • Honestly I just wish they'd give us the option to subscribe to an ad-free experience now. I'd even make an exception in uBlock for Google ads if they'd apply "ad-free" to other sites and let me buy that experience while still supporting the content makers I support.

    I go through a lot of effort to prevent myself from seeing ads online. That overall effort (not just for Google, but for my entire web experience) is probably worth $50-100 per month of my time, and I'd gladly pay that if it meant I didn't have to put in the effort. I've been slowly unsubscribing from streaming services because of their ads policies...

  • Eastern Cottontail I saw on a walk yesterday.

    www.wemu.org Free Narcan kits will soon be available in Ann Arbor parking lots

    Free Naloxone, also known as Narcan, dispensary boxes will soon be appearing in some Ann Arbor parking locations. WEMU’s Kevin Meerschaert has this report.

    Free Narcan kits will soon be available in Ann Arbor parking lots

    Personally I think this is a great thing! I've been carrying narcan kits in my car and on my bike for years now. Fortunately I've never had a need to use one, but that also means I now have an expired narcan kit I need to discard.

    Can I hide posts from an entire instance?

    Question in the title. I don't want to see posts from lemmynsfw, but I don't want to just blanket disable NSFW stuff either since the tag gets used for other things. Is there a way to do this or do I have to individually block each community that shows up in my feed?

    Universities have small staffs to respond to FOIA requests, and they too liberally use privacy exemptions allowed by state law to delay the process, these experts say.
