Firefox has a new feature which strips tracking tags from URLs.

It doesn't strip Google tracking tags.

Google pays Mozilla around $400m a year.

I wonder if these facts are related?

It's good thing actually, the Hollywood music industry is trash and hella corrupt. Good music went back to the underground and independent artists where it belongs.

@tomcat file system snapshots are an amazing thing to have.

Kernel panicked while updating, and the system became totally unresponsive, even to SysRq REISUB and was forced to hard reset.

Reboot to ERROR: root device mounted successfully, but /sbin/init does not exist. fml.

Booted into live media, and was able to restore to a previous snapshot. Thank the gods for Snapper

And now the jaw dropping 😲 discovery not many knows about this 😏. Japanese 🇯🇵 researchers discovered what's known to be Hyperdiamond (Aggregated diamond nanorod).

So to put into perspective bulk modulus is that property that indicates the pressure needed to deform certain materials. For diamond this is ~446 GPa (Giga Pascals) , Osmium has about 460 GPa and Hyperdiamond 🥁 🥁 🥁 491 GPa that's about 4521x the pressure at the Mariana Trench bottom (0.1086GPa) The Earth inner core pressure is 'only' about 360 GPa

Its hardness (the pressure needed to scratch Nanodiamond) is ~310 GPa it exceeds 10 on the the Mohs scale of mineral hardness.

In natural state Hyperdiamond was discovered in a 100km diameter meteorite impact crater in Russia (Popigai crater) created by a 5 miles chondrite asteroid. 'The shock pressures from the impact instantaneously transformed graphite in the ground into diamonds within a 13.6 km (8.5 mi) radius of the impact point.'

Julian must be freed before it’s too late. His life depends on it. Your rights depend on it.
