"If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack."

There is freedom waiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky,
And your ask

"What if I fall?"

Oh but my darling,

What if you fly?

Über allen Gipfeln
Ist Ruh,

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

Let n be an integer.

Arrange the first n^2 odd numbers in a square n on a side, left-to-right and top-to-bottom, like so (n=3):

1 3 5
7 9 11
13 15 17

Regardless of what n you chose, the following will be true:

The sum of the first row is n^2

The sum of either diagonal (from one corner to the other) is n^3

The sum of all the numbers in the square is n^4

For gin, in cruel
Sober truth,
Supplies the fuel
For flaming youth.

I am still reading one book and I already got the next three lined up, and now I want to finish the first one but then also I have to choose the order of the other ones

Mozilla plans to enable the FIDO U2F API for all Firefox users since U2F is more widespread than WebAuthn at the moment:

blog.mozilla.org/security/2019

– FIDO U2F (Universal 2nd Factor) offers secure second factor authentication and is roughly the predecessor of WebAuthn
– Firefox 60 brings support for WebAuthn
