Yet another technology implemented by Mozilla in Firefox with nary a thought to its potential harm.
In Firefox to disable, do:
§Enter “about:config” in the address bar and press enter §Press the button “I’ll be careful, I promise!” §Type in “media.peerconnection.enabled” in the search bar §Right-click the entry choose “Toggle”, the column “Value” should now be “false”
This vulnerability is also present in Chrome but I don’t and won’t use that privacy-thieving piece of shit so I have no idea how to disable it there.
The Fat Acceptance SJWs think they won a great victory. But if SJW crap falls out of favor, their subreddits will also be shitcanned faster than a CEO racks up dollars in Caymans bank accounts. (By the way, I think Pao was making $500 an hour as CEO, not that high as far as CEOs go.)
FA in my mind stands for “Failure Acceptance” these days. FA: for when you’ve well and truly given up.
Last week Oregon’s insurance commissioner, Laura Cali, announced that the state had approved a 25 percent premium increase for the largest health insurer on the state’s exchanges. The second largest insurer did even better: It received permission to boost its monthly charge to consumers by 33 percent.
Oregon might be the first health insurance exchange equivalent of a penguin getting shoved off an ice floe, but it won’t be alone in the freezing-cold waters for long. For example, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee requested an average 36 percent price increase for the plans it offers—after receiving a 19 percent bump last year. And that sounds like a relative bargain compared with Minnesota and New Mexico, where the BlueCross BlueShield family is looking for increases of more than 50 percent. Even if the final numbers are lower than the asks, it seem
But Kevin Drum assured me that the premium increases would “only” be 4.8 percent. What happen!
How dumbass Dems can continue defending the ACA I have no idea.
There was never a chance in hell that the ACA would do anything to control health care costs for individuals. Now that it’s passed and the initial furor has died down, the insurance companies are going to jack the rates right up and continue to do so.
I don’t mind saying I told you so, so: I told you so.
From my experience, controlling and limiting the UI has become a “religious thing” amongst young programmers who believe they know best and want to impose that on the rest of the world. The lame excuse I see most from the script-kiddies is “we don’t want to re-invent the wheel!” So they make the wheel square and claim it’s “betta’ than eva’!” and call it a day.
During the 90s — when programming such things was much harder than it is today — nearly every UI was configurable. That capability to configure hasn’t gone away for technical reasons or ease of coding for that is easier than ever now, but because of these religious views on UI.
As the culture at large has gotten more authoritarian, software developers have gone right along with that. They are swimming in the same stream after all.
This band is not from earth. Just look at the singer. She does a pretty good job of acting like a real human woman, but she’s too well-coiffed, too poised, too perfect to be a member of Homo sapiens. Perhaps a replicant, perhaps an alien, but still a great performance.
