CSI show question 

Are there any episodes in CSI where there's no culprit and the death turned out to be accidental?

oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god

I can't even describe, properly, in words what I felt watching this. It was seeing an old friend again, after such a long absence.

@cyberpunklibrarian I'm with you for much of this, but Brave?

I still use Firefox, though for a while after the WebExtension debacle I switched to Waterfox (which kept XUL support) until my favorite extensions were back up to snuff. It's not yet dead to me, because at least all of the ick can still be disabled, and the public outcry about every stumble tends to reach me before the update does.

But for Chrome? I don't trust anything Brendan Eich has touched, much less a browser he had a hand in. For the rare cases where I need Chromium for something, I run Chromium Ungoogled.

Consolidators gotta consolidate. OverDrive's buying spree continues with acquisition of TeachingBooks.net.

You ever discover a thing that you really should have heard about, because it's something well within your Venn diagram of interests? And when you discover it, you're almost mad that you didn't know about that thing, because... damn, that thing looks really cool and snazzy?

So, yeah... YunoHost. How'd that fly under my radar?

@cyberpunklibrarian I share most of your thoughts in there, but there is a very critical point: I used brave before, even liked the idea too. But I actively recommend against it now!

There are multiple reasons, some people have written about them and I'd happily elaborate if you prefer that:

I just read this evening that Takao Saito, the creator of Golgo 13, passed away today at the age of 84. I was introduced to this fantastic character through a game on the NES, Top Secret Episode. They followed that up with The Mafat Conspiracy which was just as good. Both were unique in that they portrayed dark, adult themes and stories on a video game system more known for colourful, bouncy characters and games.

Domo arigato gozaimasu, Takao-san.

Selfie. Eye contact. 

Not sure I’ll ever find a shirt that’s more on-brand for me than this.

Updated the Useful Polaris SQL repo.

Added query to get basic item history based on an ItemRecordID. SimplyReports can get ItemHistory, but can only do so through an item barcode. If the item has been deleted, Simply won't work. But this will.

@cyberpunklibrarian A really interesting story behind all that, very much tied to the FTC's new "Right To Repair" orders ✅
