How many posts have I read now with people buying a new MacBook Pro to use for a very long time? How many of them will buy new devices in two years? 😅

Nice, Firefox 93 got released. The big news is support for the AVIF image format, but Firefox finally has a datetime-local input implementation now!

It rains and thunders like crazy and the water stands a few centimeters on the road. I have not seen that often here. Nature is trying to get back some missing respect.

It’s interesting how everyone (including me) starts developing their own blogging system: Colin Walker, but also James Van Dyne are some recent examples.

Platforms

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

I built myself a TikTokToJsonFeed tool a month ago to follow some profiles, because I don’t want to install the app or create myself an account there. That tool uses a JavaScript library called tiktok-scraper. Unfortunately TikTok changed some things in the UI or unofficial API and now the scraper is broken. This and the fact that platforms like TikTok or Instagram (and many more) block IPs when they detect scrapers is actually a big warning sign. ⚠️ Such platforms don’t want to do anything but keep users on them, show them ads and make the big bucks.
