USB-C was a mistake. We need USB-D.

One of my sons is doing a lot with the language (mostly due to my guidance, I'd like to think).

He's having fun with mods, which are written in Lua.

He's also been tackling some business data related projects for me. He's been able to write a script to export data from my business sqlite database into Lua tables stored in individual files. We hope this will be the base for redoing my business data in a more Unix like way that we can have many more options how we handle and manipulate it instead of being stuck with a really old Ruby On Rails app.

Wish I had more time to program with him. I'm interested but need to continue to focus on getting computer repair and sales work done.

@retroedgetech @awesomesheep48 Unfortunately I use the DDG browser on mobile and now Microsoft knows even more about me. Guess I'm off for a while.

@poga

Looks like may have an extensive profile on me, then. I have used for years and promoted it.

It's likely still better than using search directly... but disappointing to be finding out what compromises DDG has made.

However, while performing a security audit of the DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser, security researcher Zach Edwards discovered that while the browser blocks Google and Facebook trackers, it allowed Microsoft trackers to continue running.

DuckDuckGo CEO and Founder Gabriel Weinberg confirmed that their browser intentionally allows Microsoft trackers third-party sites due to a search syndication agreement with Redmond.
