For those who say taxing the rich more will lead to capital flight, so a decline in tax revenue: Massachusetts “millionaire’s tax” (extra 4% tax on $1M+ incomes) has earned > $1.8 billion in income for fiscal 2023. That’s about double the estimates. https://www.wgbh.org/news/politics/2024-05-21/millionaires-tax-revenue-reaches-1-8-billion-on-pace-to-double-estimates

So it finally touched 50 degrees in some areas, and it's 46 degrees in my area. I wonder if I can cook an omelet without a stove lol

I just travelled halfway across Europe from Hamburg to Paris on two trains, cost was about €40 per train including seat reservations with a journey time of ~4 hours per train.

Going to London today from my parents place in Oxfordshire, journey time 50 minutes and a cost of £58!

I don’t understand this country anymore. Public transport is a joke here.

Back in Spain where I now live, I get free bus and train travel. I’m not a pensioner, I’m a resident and pay taxes. This is how it should be.

@alexsexton_
It is expensive in the UK because the railways were sold off and European Railway companies bought a lot of the shares so British rail passengers are subsidising European rail train journeys. Enjoy!

Britain has been asset stripped.

Ruh Roh!

Just trying to display 32,000 lines of Spotify tracks I listened to from 2010 - 2015 from a couple of json files. Might need to paginate this!

simoncox,
@simoncox@seocommunity.social avatar

@ilovechoclates_ This popped up in a browser while i was running a locally served development site built in 11ty. Not sure if it was Node, 11ty or the browser that gave me the error image. Quick check and i t looks like a Vivaldi error page. It did have about 100k items being processed into an ordered list. Which was fun.

simoncox,
@simoncox@seocommunity.social avatar

@ilovechoclates_
Computer can handle it, not a problem! That was from one json file of data and i have 8 of them - all my Spotify listening history since 2010 with loads of data points per listen.

It might all be smoke and mirrors anyway trying to obfuscate what they are about to roll out with SGE because we re not there yet by a long way.

simoncox,
@simoncox@seocommunity.social avatar

@ilovechoclates_
The leak is potentially big news. However it isn't the algo just an indicator of the data they collect. How that is then used is open to conjecture. What people are upset about though is that they are collecting data points that they said they do not. They may have said this to simplify our understanding and stop anyone gaming the system. Which suggests they might not care if this is known about now if they really are going to roll out an AI driven Google. Fascinating times.

Some might indeed say betrayal but this is corporate and thier morals are driven by different drivers than individuals. i worry that the Google Search front line team are going to suffer. Not really thier decision to explain things how they have.

A couple of weekends ago I built a log store. I actually wrote about it, for a change!

How much of the internet is down at the moment? Last week it was duckduckgo (via bing), now it's discord, I'm sure there was another key site that was down earlier today too… 🤔

@rem

To be fair I think its all feeling a bit down at the moment.

I got my blood test results back, and they’re completely fine. Which doesn’t explain why I’m so incredibly tired pretty much all the time.

@malarkey

I believe that might be a build up of both age and cynicism.

Think I have a touch of it as well.

I am trying to figure out how to make the /blog the parent page for all the posts and it's getting hard 😭

Woah there. Never take an AI's word for anything. Test it yourself!

simoncox,
@simoncox@seocommunity.social avatar

@ilovechoclates_

I don't know the answer as it is WP. :)
