Oh, and thanks to a nudge from @ksclarke I have added tags to my linkspam CWs by way of hinting at what's within.

As always, you can filter on "Linkspam" to get rid of that stuff if you're uninterested. My feelings won't be hurt.

Reminder to anyone who supports the NYT staff's labor action: unless a miracle happens and we get a contract deal by midnight, we will be walking out for one day tomorrow, Dec. 8.

We'll be asking supportive readers to abstain from visiting/using NYT offerings for the day, midnight to midnight. That means articles. That means multimedia. That means... Wordle.

I know. That one pains me too. But maybe the word will be like LYMPH and we'll all be lucky to miss it.

Ah. Right. I'm hangry because I had meetings from noon to 2:15 and didn't eat beforehand the way a sensible person would have.

Fortunately, I have my nuts-and-fruit box right in front of me on my desk.

The ability to opt-in to encrypted iCloud backups is a really big win for users and bad news for law enforcement, who loved to request iCloud backups to save them the trouble of breaking into a phone.

#OpenAccess journals, please take heed.

New study: "Using a random sample of 300 English language open access journals, we assessed author guidelines to understand image requirements for submissions…We found that most open access journals do not include disability accessibility elements in their guidelines…While over half the journals had required parameters for image submission, none of them required alt text."

I bet a bot-created incident report would be the highest of comedy.
