    I imagine some of its features might require inline polyfills, since they frequently take upcoming ECMAScript features and add them to TypeScript.

    Once I get it set up I'd love to replace the memory chips with an arduino or raspberry pi. Hooking up the data/address lines/clock would let me write some Rust code to map 6502 memory reads and writes to the other computer's system memory.

    DoH was already disabled for me on Firefox 69.0.0 (Windows 10). Does anyone know under what conditions it's on by default? A fresh install, perhaps?

    Is there a term for people who only feel primary sexual desire?

    primary sexual attraction is an instant attraction to people based on instantly available information such as their appearance or smell, which may or may not lead to arousal or sexual desire. Secondary sexual attraction is considered to be an attraction that develops over time based on a person’s relationship, an emotional connection with another person… Most sexuals in romantic relationships feel both primary and secondary sexual desire. The term demisexual, under this model, tends to refer to people who experience secondary sexual attraction but not primary sexual attraction.

    Does that include wages? If so that's surprisingly cheap.

    but the infrastructure to maintain a TLD is also around a $100k initial outlay.

    It's less interesting to have actual scientists on TV. You can keep putting new spins on a lie. The truth doesn't change.

    I recently received this message from an admin:

    Hello! You are receiving this message because you have followed a user profile in the past.

    Starting on 08/19/2019, we will begin showing some users new followers of their profile. In about 3 months, all users will be able to see all the usernames of their followers, including follows that were done in the past, while the user profile feature was in beta. Please take a moment to check your subscriptions list (where followed users also appear) to ensure that if you follow someone, you are comfortable with them being aware of this.

    It's a rather big change and a shame that they are making reddit more and more like the rest of social media.

    This is an unfortunate consequence of computers getting so cheap and small that cryptographic functions can be performed by a battery, a cable, or any other small component in a larger system.

    Right. I doubt there are many Apple engineers who don't buy into this mindset. It's hard to get someone to believe something when their paycheck depends on their not believing it.

    Don't worry, once Disney owns the entire entertainment industry it will all be on the same platform.
