If you share a link from twitter to other platforms you used to see a preview... but not for a while now. Doesn't matter if it's Facebook or Lemmy, twitter.com replies with a 404 on links that work fine even without being logged in.

Are they incompetent or is this a strategy to limit incoming traffic? 🤣

I really don't understand... Was their thought process someone like this?

"We were gonna hook up any day now, but since she came out that won't happen anymore, so I'll unfollow her!"

November 28, 2023 - Turbo Pascal turns 40

Turbo Pascal was introduced by Borland in November 1983. It's officially turning 40 years old this month.

Turbo Pascal was a milestone product for the industry, it started Borland as a company and it was the first popular Integrated Development Environment or IDE. It was a great product for the time, and its success was incredible.

You can read more about Turbo Pascal it in this recent blog post from David I, but also on Wikipedia and many other sources including blog posts of mine, including the talk I did this summer in the first Pascal World Congress in Salamanca.

At Embarcadero, the company continuing working on the successors of Turbo Pascal, we just shipped version 36 of that compiler. In fact when you read "Embarcadero Delphi for Win32 compiler version 36.0" (the version of the command line compiler in Delphi 12 Athens) the compiler version number, 36, dates back to the first Turbo Pascal. Not only that, we decided to dedicate the product Easter Egg to this great anniversary.

Six months later, we can see that the effects of leaving Twitter have been negligible. A memo circulated to NPR staff says traffic has dropped by only a single percentage point as a result of leaving Twitter, now officially renamed X, though traffic from the platform was small already and accounted for just under two percent of traffic before the posting stopped.

Remember: The oil industry knew for 70 years what burning oil does to the climate and has been actively undermining that truth for 50 years - that's the Climate Scam. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2023/jan/12/exxon-climate-change-global-warming-research

This kind of propaganda is desperate. I'm surprised they found this many streamers who apparently don't care where the money comes form.

Sally (a girl) has 3 brothers. Each brother has 2 sisters. How many sisters does Sally have?

The correct answer is 1 - slightly more compared to how many AIs got it right.

Biden already did steps 1 and 2, and step 3 is in process. So far, Biden has made the most progress on weed legalization of all US presidents 🤷

My takeaways after watching the whole thing:

As soon as garlic's cells are destroyed (cut, smashed, pressed) the process that creates allicin, the main compound responsible for fresh garlic's flavor and aroma, starts and peaks after 1 min. So, use garlic as freshly as possible.

Dried, or otherwise preserved garlic loses the allicin as it is very volatile. You still get a garlic like flavor from them, but it's always inferior to fresh. However, if you're cooking something where garlic is not the main flavor that is likely ok (only noticable in direct comparison).

I also made the cilantro chicken he used for a taste test yesterday and it was da bomb! Here's the recipe:

Marinade chicken thighs with a paste of:

  • 4" ginger
  • 1.5 lemon's juice
  • garlic
  • salt

Brown over medium high heat in neutral oil.

Top with Sauce, blended:

  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • green chillies
  • squirt of tomato paste
  • half bunch cilantro
  • salt

After a few min finish with whole milk yogurt. Serve with rice, garnish with fresh cilantro.

In summary, the video is a bit slow at times (could probably have been a 20min video), but the information contained was interesting and helpful for anyone cooking with garlic :)

Pics for the recipe:

This fancy cold brew dispenser makes me happy all summer. It's really well engineered, so you can tilt the steeper and get the last drop of of goodness out :)

Obviously, you do not need any fancy equipment to make cold brew: Steep coarsely ground coffee in cold water (1:5 ratio) for 12-24 hrs at room temperature and strain. Then store in the fridge and sip delicious iced coffee all hot summer day long, until you jitter yourself into bed and realize that wasn't conducive to a restful night's sleep.

The benefits of cold brew are less acidic coffee, time saved, because you can just fill the concentrate up with (cold or hot) water and/or milk, plus it is easy to adjust the strength of your coffee that way.

To summarize: "OMG, Sanders donated campaign funds to a non-profit we don't like!"

The Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) also allows members to donate campaign funds to any entity described in section 170(c) of the Internal Revenue Code, including charitable or educational organizations, or governmental entities.

Similarly, 20% of respondents who are personally close to a trans person agree that it’s never appropriate to discuss that some people are trans in public schools — a view that has been pushed by the anti-LGBTQ+ group Moms for Liberty and other so-called “parents’ rights” groups. That percentage rose to 41% among respondents who don’t know any transgender people.

Trans people must be very powerful, if the mere knowledge of their existence appears to be this dangerous to these ppl.

When executives at Showtime pulled a VICE documentary exploring Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ experiences with Guantanamo Bay detainees, it was hard to ignore the timing: It was one day after DeSantis officially declared for president.

The Daily Beast has obtained a transcript of that unaired documentary, “The Guantanamo Candidate,” which was anchored by Seb Walker, a longtime correspondent for the Emmy-winning newsmagazine.
