If you own an Amazon Fire Stick, do yourself a favour and remove the VLC Player and replace it with Nova. Say goodbye to video stuttering and weird UX.

Microsoft Teams: We did it, we created the most annoying software on this planet. It feels nearly usable, has a lot of UX inconstancies, and crashes at the worst moments.

Microsoft Azure DevOps: Hold my beer.

Okay Microsoft Teams, can you please tell me who of the 30 people in this chat exactly is out of office? Maybe a link in that line would be nice? Pretty please? This is *not* helpful.

Climate change example picture. There was water here a year ago. One meter. Just gone. 😥
