    Are movies worth a watch? I watched the series same as you, long after original airing, and didn't really know what to expect going in. The series end is... inconsistent with rest of it, but alright I guess. But it left me in such confused state that I didn't really think going for anything more.

    Its a condensed summary of most common XSS types, but a good place to start. Any developer trying to XSS-proof their application should not stop at that, though.

    I just started on XSS-proofing a legacy application in $DAYJOB and it has been very interesting to learn seemingly simple exploitation and often equally simple fixes.

    But the ultimate result is me being horrified at web as an development platform, considering how much the goalpost keeps moving.

    O different and late note, the skirt looks great!I learned sewing back in elementary and almost stopped since, but I remember it being harder than it looks. So kudos on keeping up and completing a big project!

    Any NixOS + Emacs users developing common lisp, here? Because I could use some help.

    I'm trying to run a simple webapp, it compiles and loads into SLY repl just fine. But when I try to start it, I get errors that it couldn't find OpenSSL. So I created a shell.nix modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH but still no luck. I have the direnv package for emacs which detects the shell.nix and loads it automatically but for some reason its not working with SLY. Interestingly enough, when I check the path that SLY is using to look for libraries in, is NIL. I even set it in .sbclrc but still no dice. What gives?

    Almost all of my anime suggestions come from 2 friends. I went outside the circle for first time and got lucky with OddTaxi Episode. Apart from that I've pretty much only watched the big names like Death Note, One Punch Man, AoT, FMA and on other end Daily Lives of Highschool boys and Saiki K.

    I realize OddTaxi was very much unusual for Anime, but I'd like to continue the trend. Anything fresh, and not from usual anime fold will be nice, so recommendations welcome!

    I dunno, this sounds a lot like corporate structure sans money.

    The design team has final say in "Product" experience, the release team has final say in what is or isn't Gnome, and the individual maintainer has final say in what gets merged.

    This structure seems hard bound for multiple power nodes overlapping each other and as a result a conservative appease all the floors approach. Very hard to get fresh conflicting ideas in, and a feedback loop creates itself. Not surprising, then, that Gnome has such controversial reputation.

    Frankly, this is the worst season of MHA. Everything went from high stakes fighting the bad guys to sandboxes fights between limited characters. But the seriousness among characters is all the same, and that feels cringy.

    Maybe its because I'm watching MHA right after binging Saiki K, but that took the feel out of it.

    On note of scrcpy, KDE Connect has been the Killer App™ for me.

    I get notifications from to phone to PC and vice versa, I can respond to messages, send files over network, run commands remotely, heck it automatically pauses my movie when a call arrives and resumes afterwards, and all of this while preserving my privacy!

    Using KDE Connect was my future is here moment.

    Edit: KDE connect works with other phones too! There are other features, like automatic clipboard sync, media controls, slideshow remote, using phone display as PC mouse/keyboard!

    Fair enough. I'm surprised there is Director level of work there, and even more importantly,

    cultural norms and sensitivities across the globe

    Above is the main reason which makes below overly complicated:

    design work,...,technical details

    In essence, I can't help but think that Google et al. are fighting the problem they created (overly sensitive and tribalized populace). Like digging trench around the forest after starting the wildfire.

    I weep for the future of humanity.

    I first watched Danshi Koukou when the only anime's I had watched were Death Note and FMA. I still laughed my ass off.

    Granted, when I eventually rewatched it last week, it was way funnier because I had more familiarity, but I'm still not very familiar with mainstream highschool anime's.I've only ever watched Danshi Koukou till end.

    Thank you! Mob Psycho was pretty good. Gintama is in my list, but it has enough episodes to that it will have to wait till Christmas. But others seem approachable for me (no. of episode wise).

    I really really enjoyed 'Danshi Koukousei no nichijou'. In particular anything-goes hijinx parts, and nice lore.

    I also enjoyed metahumor from Saekano and Monogatari, but they lean in their respective category more than comedy part.

    Monogatari is a bit heavy and needs attention, so I'm looking for something light and humorous. I don't much enjoy fan service/lewdness unless it serves the purpose of the story or as comic relief.

    Any suggestions welcome!
