TIL: In the Firefox inspector you can right click a node to get a contextual menu… and one of the options on which is “Screenshot node”.

This will snap the whole node, even the bits above or below the viewport. So snapping <body> will give you a scrolled screenshot: no need for a special tool to screenshot entire pages anymore.

Just awesome.

@dubh glad (in a way) to know that I'm not the only one who feels like this (every day for me). We have cut out almost all meat at home, buy clean power, drive an electric car and try to carbon offset our lives but when I look around it feels like we're pissing in the wind. I am incredibly worried for my kids' future.

In New Zealand, we prefer our comms gear to be backdoored by the USA, not China, thank you very much.

If you find yourself sitting in cars now and then, this might be interesting to you and help you prevent accidents.
So if you open a cars door from the inside, you open the door with the hand that's not next to the door. This means that you turn around you body which automatically turns your vision in the direction where other cars or bikes might come from.

I was taught this early on I believe, anyways this is the way I have always done it.

I've been thinking about something like this lately and here it is! Mobilizon promises to be a good, free and open source, federated alternative to Meetup and Facebook Events. Join their crowdfunding campaign!

@lightweight thanks, that looks potentially interesting for the Cacophony Project

I was honoured to accept a NZ Hi-Tech Award on behalf of the Cacophony Project last night. It's wonderful for the team and our amazing open source contributors to be recognised for all their hard work and innovation.


One thing that seems to have gotten hidden from the GitHub announcements is actually THE MOST VALUABLE feature for open source maintainers:

The ability to have private discussions and code review about security vulnerabilities WITHIN your repo.

Dear Gun Freaks of America,

Many thanks for your input to date regarding our new gun laws. But here's an idea.

What say you do it your way, we'll do it ours.

I know where I'd rather be living.

Initial trial shows that the Cacophony Project's AI based thermal camera is 3.5x more sensitive & 8x cheaper per detection for monitoring of possums in NZ.

Volt looks very interesting... It needs Mastodon support too

@dankwraith @klaatu sleep, or just leaving the problem for a bit and doing something else. Both can work wonders.

"If one product like #Chromium has enough market share, then it becomes easier for web developers and businesses to decide not to worry if their services and sites work with anything other than Chromium. That’s what happened when #Microsoft had a monopoly on browsers in the early 2000s before #Firefox was released. And it could happen again.

If you care about what’s happening with online life today, take another look at Firefox." #edge

Anyone have any experience in breaking rolling code key fobs?

Decided to clone my garage door clicker and aside from the obvious playback attack I'm not really sure how you'd go about extracting the secret from the hardware.

Captured a few radio packets, seems like a 4 btye code. Not game enough to open a 400 dollar fob with no clones on the market to see what chip is driving it. Any way to identify it?
