db [db!uid18678@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-iofnlrxrzqyheday] has joined #java-talk [12:36]
db visa locked my credit card - again. within less than one year. and they can't tell me why either... [12:38]
db really makes me wonder. I mean I'm not constantly using it on porn sites or anything. [12:39]
ricky_clarkson That could get tiring. [12:45]
ricky_clarkson Do they give you a new card number afterwards? Maybe consider which merchants you're giving it to. [12:46]
ricky_clarkson gPay or samsung pay or whatever might be able to help you hide the actual card number, not sure [12:46]
db the *only* unusual transaction I did was to pay for a lifetime shodan.io memebership (it was on sale for $4 the other day)... otherwise I'm paying stuff on amazon, google pay, grab (that's like uber), and hotel bookings - oh well, one of those was via the hilton website instead of the usual booking.com. [12:49]
db they will send a new card but because I live in Thailand and that bank is in germany, it usually takes weeks. [12:49]
ricky_clarkson Mine go to my mother and she posts it from the UK to the US. She sends me the numbers on it first, which helps a bit. [12:52]
ricky_clarkson but UK->US post is fairly quick. [12:52]
db really that bank just sucks. it's so hard to tell nowadays, everyone is like "oh our service is so great, and our customers most valued" but then you get all those little details - like they lock my card first and didn't send the email yet (it's probably batched for 0800 in Germany or something) [12:53]
db in fact I have set my mother's address in Germany too as alternative address, they will post it there I suppose. I think I had set it up when it happened last time... [12:54]
ricky_clarkson Closing my Argentine bank account when I left the country was even more hilarious than opening it had been. [12:55]
db how so? [12:55]
ricky_clarkson It took three visits to a particular branch, to arrange being able to get my last paycheck after I had already left, then clearing it out and closing the account by email. [12:56]
ricky_clarkson then bits of interest and tax crap kept moving the balance up and down a few cents, and it's not possible to close it with a non-zero balance. [12:56]
db off to the bank with a pocket full of pesos (or whatever) [12:57]
ricky_clarkson Everything seemed to be done in two parallel systems, paper and computer, the exact same operations in each. [12:57]
db oh yes peso, ha. [12:57]
ricky_clarkson the paper is why it had to be that branch [12:57]
db they have that here too in Thailand; certain things can only be done at the branch where I opened the account. [12:58]
ricky_clarkson The bank is open from 9 to 6 but only sees the public from 10 to 2 or something, fuck knows what they're doing the rest of the time. [12:58]
db stamping paper. [12:58]
ricky_clarkson Each bank has different discount days in supermarkets, so all the Santander customers will be in Carrefour on Wednesdays, for instance. [01:00]
ricky_clarkson That practically means, unless you want to waste money, you shop on X day, which is a headfuck if you're not used to it. [01:00]
db heh [01:01]
db Imagine what that means. you never met your soulmate future wife because she was at a different bank. [01:01]
ricky_clarkson It's amazing how complex countries can make the most mundane things. [01:01]
ricky_clarkson hah, great insight [01:01]
ricky_clarkson No using mobile phones in the bank, in case you tweet where the vault is. [01:02]
ricky_clarkson I had my Nokia shitbrick placed in a plastic bag for breaking that rule. [01:03]
ricky_clarkson I bet Thailand has a lot of stuff that makes no sense too. [01:03]
db they seem to have a strong, paper-based bureaucracy. like whenever you go to any government office, you need to fill in a form, provide one or two passport-sized pictures, two copies of your passport (with all relevant visa pages), signed; you hand that to the guy at the information counter who quickly checks for completeness; he queues it for processing and you get a number [01:08]
db then 0.5-2 hours waiting, your number gets called; an officer (in uniform) asks some questions, stamps everything diligently [01:09]
db then it goes to the higher-up somewhere in the back room while you wait again [01:09]
db etc. [01:09]
db same procedure whatever you do. transport office (registering a vehicle), immigration (extending/applying for a visa), land office. [01:11]
db I sometimes wonder what they do with all the passport copies. [01:11]
db ah, and those forms have numbers. so you would read things like "you need to bring your TM.30-receipt of notification of stay and a TM.6 departure card and a filled in TM.7 extension of temporary stay [01:16]
db I wonder if I even should keep banking in Germany at all. I used to get my salary from a German company but not any more. But then where do I bank. Isle of Man? [01:18]
ricky_clarkson That sounds a lot like Arg. [01:31]
ricky_clarkson Bring your ID, copy of it, utility bill, copy of it, take a number, wait for it to be announced [01:32]
ricky_clarkson or in some cases, give your name then wait for them to butcher it over a loudspeaker [01:32]
ricky_clarkson Clarkson is apparently really quite difficult [01:32]
ricky_clarkson Wifey (a native) sent me once with only copies of my passport, not the original, that was a nice waste of time. [01:33]
ricky_clarkson Not to insult the country you chose to live in, but I wonder if these shitholes collude with each other to see how best to do things badly. [01:34]
db Clarkson? [01:35]
db regarding butchering the name, in Thailand they usually only use the first name (it is considered formal), so they would call out "Mister Daniel", that usually works well enough [01:37]
db Imagine your name was Tchaikovsky or something [01:49]
db Grzegorz Brz?czyszczykiewicz [01:50]
db https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfKZclMWS1U [01:51]
db db's title: "Grzegorz Brz?czyszczykiewicz (HD)" [01:51]
ricky_clarkson Guess: gregorz brezessyz zykivitz. Reality: gregorz brensistykivich [01:58]
ricky_clarkson I have a couple of contractors in Poland, for two of them I can mostly pronounce their names and even nicknames, the other is just letter soup. [02:01]
ricky_clarkson I'm feeling like project managers kind of pay attention at the beginning of a project, wait for some goodwill to build up, a team to form, and then turn into ETA bots. "ETA? We need the schedule for the next 6 months before agreeing on requirements. Did I mention ETA yet?" [02:38]
ricky_clarkson </rant> [02:38]
sonOfRa morning [02:54]
puppy_za morning [02:55]
scav morning [03:30]
Faux morning [03:34]
sonOfRa If you go to the butcher and ask for a rack of ribs, did you just request a slab allocation? [03:39]
sonOfRa Ugh password expiry again [03:41]
Collaken [Collaken!~flo@ip4d17fbba.dynamic.kabel-deutschland.de] has joined #java-talk [03:49]
sonOfRa TIL german tax code has a concept of "gaming the system" being illegal [04:04]
sonOfRa That is rather fascinating: Basically, if you make a financial decision who's only purpose is tax avoidance, rather than anything else, you get taxed as if you hadn't made that decision [04:04]
sonOfRa For example: Giving money to your child who then give you that money back as a loan [04:05]
Faux Heh. We have lots of laws against that kind of thing, and they keep going to court, and the government keeps losing the court cases. [04:06]
Faux With the judgement of "wtf is this law fuck off". [04:06]
sonOfRa It's going both ways here [04:06]
Faux i.e. it's not possible to interpret your law legally, so we won't. [04:06]
db sonOfRa: I guess you just have to do it "right" [04:12]
sonOfRa yeah [04:12]
sonOfRa If you can afford to pour tens of thousands into tax lawyers, you get to ignore all the rules [04:13]
KidBeta [KidBeta!~Kidbeta@hpavc/kidbeta] has joined #java-talk [04:23]
scav the reason most governments allow this to go on, is that like it or not, countries actually need rich people to live there [04:28]
acuzio morning ladies [04:34]
puppy_za morning [04:35]
acuzio puppy_za: [04:35]
acuzio Re : Tax , i am for the first time in ~ 15 years getting a tax refund from HMRC [04:36]
puppy_za because of the house expenses? [04:36]
acuzio puppy_za: Overpayment of taxes last year due to not taking into account pension contributions [04:36]
puppy_za oh ok [04:37]
scav lucky you [04:37]
puppy_za he just got back his money. It's not an income :p [04:37]
acuzio I am still waiting for Uncle SAM to return something to me ; NY state taxes are quite high [04:37]
scav i sold a bunch of warrants, and got taxed to hell and back for it [04:37]
acuzio scav: dude you are selling warrants ., you are a rich trader ; course you are going to get taxed [04:38]
scav apparently, that instrument is not under tax exempt [04:38]
scav still, i tax enough i feel? [04:38]
acuzio Warrants are fucking serious things , mostly used by high-end HF's and well rich traders [04:38]
acuzio You are somewhere in Scandanavia right [04:39]
acuzio Its the best place to be on Earth stop fucking moaning [04:39]
puppy_za Norrrway [04:39]

puppy_za p [04:40]
acuzio aye [04:41]
scav yes, we are the only country in the world where people trade financial instruments [04:41]
scav all because of our oil [04:41]
acuzio correct [04:43]
scav acuzio: warrants are also given to shareholders when you print new money [04:43]
scav sorry, i mean issue new stocks [04:43]
puppy_za I just spent 2 mins to read what a warrant (trading) is [04:45]
sonOfRa imagines a "stop doing math" style "stop trading stocks" infographic [04:46]
sonOfRa "instruments are meant to make music, not generate money" [04:46]
sonOfRa "I'm bullish on X. Statements dreamed up by the utterly deranged"# [04:46]
puppy_za who needs to go to magic school when financial institutions can come up with those instruments? [04:47]
puppy_za after reading it for 5 mins, I realised why it's used by the hedge funds [04:50]
scav hey! lets not talk badly about hedge funds. they are totally financing my vacation this summer :) [04:51]
scav sonOfRa: bullish on everything, no gay bears here [04:51]
sonOfRa [twisti]: Einsicht ist der erste Weg zur Besserung :P [05:02]
[twisti] D [05:02]
[twisti] i think its der erste Schritt though, isnt it ? [05:02]
sonOfRa I've heard both [05:03]

scav good job killing the chat, germanyt [08:59]
sonOfRa Jawohl! [09:04]
puppy_za are people still on the extended Easter holidays? [09:24]
puppy_za or are we the only people who ever chat here? [09:24]
ron let me schedule a 7am meeting with you [09:24]
ron let me move that meeting just a few minutes before 7am [09:25]
puppy_za what time zone are you in? [09:25]
ron what difference does it make [09:25]
puppy_za the timezone difference? [09:25]
ron we're all spread around, there's no one timezone [09:26]
puppy_za fine [09:26]
puppy_za scheduled a 7am meeting with ron [09:27]
ron go fuck yourself [09:27]
puppy_za if I am that flexible I would [09:27]
ron eew [09:27]
puppy_za \_(?)_/ [09:27]
ron scheduling a meeting at 6am? that's fine. at 6pm? poor people, they need to 'get home' [09:28]
puppy_za not if they work from home? [09:29]
scav i agree, let people go home you fucking slaver [09:29]
ron oh, so it's ok to ask people to get to the 'office' at 6am? [09:33]
puppy_za are you asking me? [09:34]
ron no [09:34]
puppy_za that's a relief [09:34]
ron you're not the only one here [09:34]
puppy_za I know [09:34]

scav ron: is it impossible to have an opinion on meetings at 6pm unless i also have one for the 6am meeting? [10:43]
ron correct. [10:43]
scav thats weird, i just had one [10:44]
scav so clearly possible [10:44]
ron nope [10:46]
sonOfRa opinions are illegal [10:48]
ron true dat [10:56]
sonOfRa God this week has barely started and I can't wait for it to be over [11:01]
scav thoughts and prayers [11:14]
scav though i agree [11:14]
r0bby [r0bby!sid699@guifications/user/r0bby] has joined #java-talk [11:25]
freeone3000 Switched to firefox over the chrome ad thing and ... it's the same, it's literally the same, all browsers are the same except Brave is run by transphobes, Chrome is run by advertisers, and Edge is run by the company I work for. [11:34]
ron how is ff the same? [11:34]
freeone3000 from the user's perspective, nothing about the websites I visit or any content displayed has changed with the browser switch [11:34]
sonOfRa you could use one of those GAMER browsers [11:35]
sonOfRa opera gx or what it's called. It's weird. [11:36]
freeone3000 opera got acquired by tencent [11:37]
sonOfRa why *wouldn't* you want to give all your browsing data to tencent [11:38]
sonOfRa It even comes with a free VPN so you can route all your traffic through them. So convenient! [11:38]
scav just use Safari [11:38]
Faux Chrome has started hanging up for me for multiple seconds. When I work out it's buttwarden I'm going to be most annoyed. [11:39]
scav its because their CSS-engine is immoral, Faux [11:39]
sonOfRa Signal has published server source again! Also they've got a centralized crypto-currency now. [11:40]
Faux Try interacting with https://docs.github.com/en/graphql/reference/objects [11:40]
Faux (^ browser crasher) [11:40]
freeone3000 scav: the last version of safari available for windows doesn't have css3 support [11:41]
scav freeone3000: too bad, but you wanted something different [11:41]
freeone3000 Faux: page works for me? [11:41]
freeone3000 oh god I thought gamer browser was a joke: https://www.opera.com/gx [11:41]
freeone3000 freeone3000's title: "Opera GX | Gaming Browser | Opera" [11:41]
ron wait, what kind of a different experience do you expect with a browser? [11:43]
sonOfRa freeone3000: of course GAMER browser is not a joke [11:44]
freeone3000 I kind of eexpected Chrome to have some killer feature or for every website to break horribly under a different rendering engine or something [11:44]
sonOfRa It's red and black and goes fast, because gamer [11:44]
freeone3000 Like how my bank account's website doesn't work on Brave on my phone. [11:44]
sonOfRa freeone3000: oh you can get that [11:44]
sonOfRa You have to use IE11 [11:44]
freeone3000 You can't even *get* IE11 anymore [11:45]
Faux JustEat intentionally blocks our TV. [11:45]
Faux Which seems like a terrible business model. [11:45]
sonOfRa Wait really? [11:45]
Faux (JustEat: takeaway aggregation and booking without phones.) [11:45]
sonOfRa I thought it was going to be Edge+IE11 forever now [11:45]
sonOfRa Because *we* absolutely have to keep supporting IE11 for our backoffice tools because customers are absolutely refusing to use edge? [11:45]
freeone3000 sonOfRa: Yes. As of 18049, it no longer shows up in start menu or pinned tabs, and all shortcuts to the old browser have been updated to point to edge. The only way to execute it is to start the executable directly, which if you do it from Explorer, thunks over to Edge. [11:46]
freeone3000 So you have to start the executable from either CreateProcess or from Powershell. [11:46]
sonOfRa Are they going to be able to enforce that via group policy or some shit, or do they just not know yet that they're migrating to edge? [11:46]
Faux Or have enterprise policies enabled which cause IE11 to load in sites? [11:46]
Faux WORST SENTENCE AWARD [11:46]
freeone3000 Yeah, Enterprise Policy overrides this and will cause Edge to load it in an IE tab (which is why the executable still exists on disk) [11:47]
scav sonOfRa: i have no idea of current features in Opera, but besides the stupid name and marketing the browser appears to have some cool features? [11:48]
Faux I used Opera for years because they had accessibility features, which firefox now push but I don't think they're anywhere near as good (possibly because the average website has got 100x worse). [11:48]
freeone3000 I used Opera in middle school because they had an ad-blocker and firefox didn't. [11:49]
scav I used it because of some Norwegian dude [11:49]
nullcone [nullcone!uid11626@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-vrnulbcvidagpavn] has joined #java-talk [12:01]
db I used Opera on Palm OS because it existed [12:28]
acuzio Yeah this works - for the last 3 days I have been starting my work at 5.30 PM and work till late night [12:33]
acuzio freeone3000: what do you mean Brave is run by Transphobes - isnt it like open source and sort of ready to go or am i missing something here > # [12:38]
ron it's 10:40. do I eat breakfast or lunch? [12:38]
acuzio Brunch [12:38]
ron brunch is stupid [12:39]
ron breakfast or lunch [12:39]
freeone3000 acuzio: Well, first, no. It's not. It's closed-source, propriatary, and run by Brenden Elrich. You may remember him from his time at Mozilla. [12:40]
acuzio I do indeed and thats the reason why i thought it was open source - cause you know Mozilla. [12:40]
acuzio Is he transphobic ? [12:41]
sonOfRa I'd only known about his donations to keep gay marriage illegal [12:41]
acuzio I actually didnt know that either [12:42]
acuzio wait i think freeone3000 means Brendan Eich ,,. right ? [12:43]
sonOfRa Yes [12:43]
acuzio The Javascript , Mozilla, etc guy - yeah the same guy [12:43]
sonOfRa He got forced to resign from Mozilla over the donations [12:43]
acuzio And is also an anti-masker [12:45]
acuzio facepalms [12:45]
sonOfRa Well that's news to me. What a splendid guy! [12:45]
acuzio I was wikipedia'ing him to check his credentials re : Transphobia - turns out he is anti-same sex marriage and called Fauci a liar and denied the effectiveness of Facemasks and lockdownsa [12:46]
acuzio I am always surprised by stuff like this ; Dont they look at more densely populated regions like Vietnam, Japan and see that the incidents are lower and they are doing better and go "Hmm , Face masks is an essential part here" - may be that will effective. [12:48]
acuzio or listen to you know experts and go "perhaps the expert knows more than i do about immunology" [12:48]
sonOfRa China bad [12:49]
sonOfRa Can't consider anything they do over there [12:49]
ricky_clarkson Yeah, designing a (shitty) language doesn't magically make you a nice guy. [12:49]
ricky_clarkson James Gosling probably swears sometimes ;) [12:50]
ricky_clarkson I learned from a former superfan of Gary Glitter, your heroes probably don't deserve to be. [12:51]
acuzio Gary Glitter ; oh dear god , no. [12:51]
acuzio This is of course different but seriously dont they look at themselves disagreeing with experts and think "I am a fruitcake if i think i know more than the expert on this" [12:52]
acuzio I mean.. come on [12:52]
ricky_clarkson Yep, the guy called himself Peter Glitter and had all the clothing, even doing his own impersonation show. [12:53]
ricky_clarkson I believe he burned it [12:53]
sonOfRa acuzio: I assume it goes something like "I am very rich, and therefore very successful. Because I am very successful, I must be very smart, because only a smart person could be successful and rich" [12:56]
acuzio aka the Elon Musk syndrome [12:57]
sonOfRa yes, very much that [12:57]
acuzio in other news ., Philips bulbs are now pushed back to July from June ; [01:04]
ricky_clarkson Just get some Christmas lights and a smart outlet. [01:05]
ricky_clarkson (I have no idea what you're trying to do) [01:06]
sonOfRa sighs [01:06]
sonOfRa Host family in TX has gone from "covid isn't all that bad" to full on "we're not gonna get vaccinated" [01:06]
sonOfRa 90% of covid cases are just misdiagnosed flu cases, apparently [01:07]
acuzio sonOfRa: Texan employee of ours had the same exact same talking point till his Dad died. He changed his tune sharpish ; I didnt let him forget that he was an asshole ; [01:08]
freeone3000 they're gonna get vaccinated for the flu, though, right? [01:08]
sonOfRa They did get flu shots when I was there yes [01:08]
freeone3000 ...so they're idiots [01:08]
acuzio His words included "We are Texans , we are stronger naturally" ; [01:08]
sonOfRa Yes [01:08]
sonOfRa I mean, the whole "young earth creationism" should have clued me in, but they were like, *good* people other than that [01:09]
acuzio freeone3000: stop repeating yourself - sonOfRa said they are Texans . you dont have to say it again [01:09]
freeone3000 I'm Texan. [01:09]
acuzio ricky_clarkson: lighting the house [01:09]
acuzio freeone3000: you live in Canada ; you dont count [01:09]
freeone3000 I don't stop being Texan just because I moved to another country. [01:10]
acuzio hmmmmm ., i might disagree with that but i am being facetious to begin with [01:10]
acuzio ricky_clarkson: True to form , stuff coming from the EU (these are actually manufactured in NL) have indefinite arrival times. [01:11]
acuzio And in one more piece of news , Parquest flooring is partially done ; the second half hasnt come in [01:11]
acuzio (No prizes for guessing that its coming from Europe) [01:11]
acuzio s/Parquest/Parquet [01:12]
acuzio The worst part is that due partial flooring we are having to hold off all the other things that are dependent on that - its the fucking dependency matrix from hell [01:14]
freeone3000 man wooden flooring is such a pain [01:14]
sonOfRa They honestly could be some kind of case study [01:14]
sonOfRa In 2016 they voted for trump mostly because "not hillary", and gradually, they became full on trumpists and everyone else was literally out to destroy america [01:15]
acuzio freeone3000: amen [01:15]
acuzio And i am only doing 1 floor is wooden , the other is completely tiled [01:15]
acuzio sonOfRa: its the progression ; [01:15]
scav I never learn. Update CLion and the Rust plugin breaks [01:21]
scav oh, there is a new "update plugin" buttorn [01:21]
acuzio There is a study that showed people completely falling into the rabbit hole having started out with some fairly sane policy disagreements. In 3 years they went from "I am fiscally conservative" to "All Dems are paedophiles" - ., its quite scary in some senses. The study concluded that this is a coping mechanism by severely abused victims [01:22]
scav its weird they would think pedophilia is a bad thing, considering how many republicans have been caught trafficking children [01:23]
acuzio Projection [01:24]
acuzio This is devastating in a way cause we are politically homeless . I _cannot_ vote for the GOP or the Tories. I do _not_ agree with a large part of the Dems or Labour party . I have to dis-engage with the political process. [01:25]
acuzio Re : GOP : They are anti-climate science, anti-abortion, anti-LGBTQ and even before Trump , against voting by minorities; I was opposed to them due to the first 3 reasons , now its closer to a Terrorist organisation than a legitimate political party. [01:27]
ricky_clarkson I do hope the gerrymandering can be undone so that the GOP has to become more moderate to stand a chance of power. [01:28]
ricky_clarkson Labour in the UK is disappointing, though I haven't really looked in the past few months. They seem to be a shadow copy of the tories. [01:29]
acuzio Same is the case with the Tories over here. Forget Brexit, forget the almost criminal incompetence of having the highest death rate per million among the G7 and the worst performing economy or the pathological lying. Majority of the Tory party was against providing food for hungry children. How the fuck can you vote for them ? [01:29]
ricky_clarkson we think the same as them, but not as much! [01:29]
acuzio ricky_clarkson: Kier Starmer is not Corbyn and therefore not an anti-semite or Pro-IRA ; thats his greatest achievement. [01:30]
acuzio He uses a scalpel when what we need is a fucking hammer blow [01:31]
ricky_clarkson Bring back Blair :) [01:31]
acuzio PMQ's is filled with instances where Johnson just blatantly lies and Starmer follows strict political protocol by gently disagreeing. [01:32]
acuzio What you need is a rabble rousing George Galloway type figure (not his policies) ; or a barnstorming equivalent of Tony Blair (not his policies) to shake things up. [01:33]
acuzio "Fun" fact : Under Blair the NHS had the highest sustained improvement in standards with the lowest cost. [01:33]
freeone3000 We've got a CAQ vs QS runoff here for the city. CAQ is kind of shit. [01:36]
freeone3000 But QS is opting for bringing down the price of housing by building *so much housing the prices will go down* [01:36]
freeone3000 which sort of only makes sense if you assume rich people don't have more money than the city. [01:37]
acuzio Is this Montreal ? [01:37]
freeone3000 yeah. [01:37]
acuzio The city will lose i take it [01:37]
freeone3000 city will lose by a *ton*. vacancy rates in the agglomeration have increased 20% and rental prices have increased by 60%, which home prices increasing over 120%. [01:38]
freeone3000 not even counting Greater Montreal (which is north shore, south shore, and west island) [01:38]
acuzio BTW , for London an election academic noted that London and to some extent all large cities in the UK are one-party cities. There is no chance that the Tories can win in some of these places. [01:39]
acuzio This is absolutely terrible for democracy [01:39]
freeone3000 I think once you get local the actual party matters less than the individual policies. [01:39]
acuzio Yes but the individual policies are informed by the party policies - its not completely divorced [01:40]
freeone3000 like even though he's running under Quebec Solidataire, his policies are all Equipe Coderre [01:40]
freeone3000 sure, but the politician joins the party that supports their views, not vice-versa [01:41]
freeone3000 Even though Project Montreal is part of the CAQ, she's not going to, say, have an anti-immigration stance because that doesn't make sense because she's the mayor of a city and the concerns are just completely divorced. [01:43]
acuzio fuck , that reminds me - [01:45]
acuzio one of the candidate has a EU blue card and cannot work in the UK anymore [01:45]

Faux Haha, get pissed off this guy isn't merging my PRs and start writing a fork. Turns out it's the anniversary of my PR. [03:01]
Faux To within two hours. [03:02]
ron was that english? [03:03]
Faux Unlikely. [03:03]
ron I think I should take a break and step away from the computer for now. I've been shat on in a fairly nasty way, and don't even know how to process it. [03:06]

freeone3000 Firefox containers are so close to perfect, except that there exist tabs that are not in a container. [04:21]
[twisti] what are those containers for [04:34]
sonOfRa tabs [04:35]
[twisti] i already have tabs without containers though [04:36]
ron freeone3000: do you mean opening them in a default container or a temporary container? [05:05]

freeone3000 [twisti]: Firefox containers work like chrome profiles, except you can have tabs from multiple containers in the same window, and you can set certain sites to only open in a given container. For instance, this allows you to isolate Google to google.com, mail.google.com, and youtube.com, and prevent your google account linking to other sites, and [09:45]
freeone3000 prevent you from accidentally opening one of those sites in a different container. [09:45]
freeone3000 ron: I mean, I have two containers atm: Google and Porn. And then I have tabs that are in neither of those containers, like this one. [09:46]
db th..this one? [11:01]
freeone3000 IRC is in a tab in my browser, yes. [11:29]
db I, too, use irccloud [11:29]
