Dear Web developers:

My browser sends with each and every single request a "Accept-Language" header that tells you that I'd like to be served English language first, French second.

Stop forcing Dutch content just because I happen to be browsing from Belgium.

Just because I'm browsing the Web from a country doesn't mean I understand any or all of that country's languages. People don't become polyglot overnight just by travelling.

If you're not willing to use HTTP in your Web apps, please die.

So the right RegEx is `/\d+\sGB/`. Also, if you’re looking for a great online tool to help you with regex, my favorite one is regexr.com (and it’s open source: github.com/gskinner/regexr)

Someone put a non-breakable space in the database!

By using `/\d+ GB/` to get the storage + unit, this particular phone was the only one skipped.

Gfrbrmblmbl.

Oh, look. Microsoft takes an open source project and rebrands it as a Microsoft project, totally screwing over its creator in the process. Legal? Yes. Moral? Fuck no.

If a US Executive Order attempts to govern content of social media sites, do you feel that Mastodon is a safe harbor for free speech and privacy?

(Please choose one and briefly explain why...)

Who has to write shittons of regex to parse inconsistent data because the database structure has been YOLO-ed because nobody said no to the client? 🙋‍♂️

Le dernier avis CNIL sur #StopCovid renforce nos craintes contre l'application

L'appli utilise un captcha tiers susceptible de fonctionner comme un traceur envoyant des données hors UE... ça ressemble au captcha Google :/

There are various way to parse a date with the Date object. However, all browsers aren’t equal.

Safari fails on `new Date('April 2020')`, but other browsers succeed.

Safari needs a complete date: `1 April 2020` or (with a leading zero) `01 April 2020`.

Due to browsers being more agressive against trackers, The New York Times is kicking out all 3rd party ads from its website, replacing it by their own proprietary ad system: they built a team especially for that. Vox and the Washington Post are doing the same.

How many lawyers does Twitter have?

The last update to their privacy policy violates the : they're sharing your IP address (privacy.twitter.com/en/blog/20) with ads partners, arguing IP is a “device-level data”, which is not!

Address IP is a personal data (ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topi).

The tone of the policy changes, especially regarding non-EU countries (including UK), sounds a lot like they want to use your data.

At some point they'll join the list of fined companies on enforcementtracker.com.

Took me an hour to figure out how to remove company Google’s account from my phone. So much shady design patterns in the account management UI… Gonna post some screenshots later today.
