In the last article of our series on the Acorn Platform as a Service for Kubernetes, I introduced the architecture and design of the Acorn deployment framework. This tutorial will compare Acorn with Docker Compose and Kubernetes object definitions.

Before going any further, make sure you have followed the steps for installing Acorn on Minikube explained in the previous tutorial.

Step 1: Explore the Azure Vote Microservices application

Let’s choose a simple containerized application popular among Docker developers: the Azure Vote application.

The application consists of two layers – a Python Flask interface and a Redis backend. Each layer of this microservices application is deployed as a container.

To explore the deployment artifact, clone it GitHub repository and open the file azure-vote-all-in-one-redis.yaml

The directory includes all assets including the Docker Compose file and source code.


azure-voting-app-redis
│ azure-vote-all-in-one-redis.yaml
│ docker-compose.yaml
│ LICENSE
│ README.md

├───azure-vote
│ │ app_init.supervisord.conf
│ │ Dockerfile
│ │ Dockerfile-for-app-service
│ │ sshd_config
│ │
│ └───azure-vote
│ │ config_file.cfg
│ │ main.py
│ │
│ ├───static
│ │ default.css
│ │
│ └───templates
│ index.html

└───jenkins-tutorial
config-jenkins.sh
deploy-jenkins-vm.sh

Launch the app with Docker Compose and navigate to the web app.

Now that we have a working Docker Compose application, let’s map the concepts to Acorn.

Step 2: Porting the Azure Vote app to Acorn

Technically speaking, we don’t need to port the app. Since the building blocks of Docker Compose, Acorn, and Kubernetes are container images, we’ll focus on mapping the definition to Acorn.

Open the Docker Compose file and examine the service definition.

Lines number 3-9 define the Redis service by pulling the image, setting the environment variable to enable a blank password, and exposing the port. The remaining lines create the container image from the Dockerfile residing in the azure-vote directory, by connecting the web application to the Redis backend and expose it on port 8080.

Now let’s create the Acorn definition for the same application. Create a directory called Acorn, which contains the Acorn file.

Run the application with the command below:

Get the application URL by running acorn apps ordered.

Access minikube IP after change host header shows the Azure Vote app in the browser.

It is obvious that Acornfile is similar to Docker Compose file.

The definitions and structure are similar except for the deployment target. Docker Compose runs in the context of Docker Engine, while Acorn targets a Kubernetes cluster.

Feel free to compare and contrast the Kubernetes YAML file with Acornfile. Acorn simplifies the definition of multi-container workloads while translating it into respective Kubernetes objects.

You can see how Acorn translates the definition into Kubernetes objects when you explore the namespace created for the Acorn application.

Step 3: Link resources with Acorn

PaaS implementations such as Cloud Foundry support binding stateful resources such as databases and cache with one or more stateless services. This approach makes it possible to reuse services without recreating them or managing complex synchronization between resources.

Acorn brings binding to Kubernetes applications with a simplified approach. It mimics Cloud Foundry by linking existing services. In the Acornfile app for Azure Vote, we have a Redis service that we can bind to a service deployed in another app.

To explore this concept, create a new directory and an Acornfile with the contents below:

This file creates an Acorn application with a single microservice based on the Redis image. The idea is to leverage the Redis client CLI in this application to access the Redis server running in the Azure Vote application.

Launch the application with the command below:

Notice the switch --link which connects the current application (redis client) to the azure-vote-back service belonging to the silent-sun Acorn application.

Access the container with the acorn exec ordered.

Let’s connect to the Redis host to access the key/value data stored by the Azure Vote application.

We are now able to reuse a Redis backend for multiple clients. Interestingly, the Redis client can connect to the server with the hostname mentioned in Azure Vote Acornfile.

Behind the scenes, Acorn created a service with the redis-client application namespace. The particularity of this service is that it is of type ExternalName. According to Kubernetes Documentation, an ExternalName Service is a special case of a Service that has no selectors and uses DNS names instead. In this case, the azure-vote-back DNS name simply points to the service residing in the Azure Vote application namespace, silent-sun.

Using the ExternalName service to bind services between applications is a smart way to leverage Kubernetes primitives to mimic PaaS functionality.

In the next part of this series, we’ll explore the workflow involved in iterating code through development environments and moving Acorn applications to a production environment. Stay tuned.

EGLE Director and staff visit the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe Wild Rice Restoration Project at Lake Tawas https://boomdirectory.com/egle-director-and-staff-visit-the-saginaw-chippewa-indian-tribe-wild-rice-restoration-project-at-lake-tawas/ Fri, 23 Sep 2022 06:20:31 +0000 https://boomdirectory.com/egle-director-and-staff-visit-the-saginaw-chippewa-indian-tribe-wild-rice-restoration-project-at-lake-tawas/ As part of Michigan Indian Day, today’s story from MI Environment chronicles a recent visit by the EGLE Director to Lake Tawas, where the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe is undertaking a wild rice restoration project.

As part of Michigan Indian Day, today’s story from MI Environment chronicles a recent visit by the EGLE Director to Lake Tawas, where the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe is undertaking a wild rice restoration project. Michigan Indian Day is celebrated on the fourth Friday in September to honor the significant contributions Native American tribes have made to American history, especially in the state of Michigan.

Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) Director Liesl Clark and several other EGLE personnel recently joined the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe environmental team and Staff Sgt. arms of Tribal Council Dave Merrill, Jr. during a visit to the Wild Rice Restoration Project at Lake Tawas.

Katie Hager, Environmental Outreach Specialist for the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, explains the Wild Rice Restoration Project at Lake Tawas to EGLE Director Liesl Clark and others.

An important part of the wild rice restoration project is the control of invasive species. This involved hand-removing individual Eurasian watermilfoil plants from the lake bed in Tawas to protect wild rice – square foot by square foot.

The tribe now has equipment available on a specially fitted pontoon that includes giant vacuum hoses that bring weeds onto the boat for automated bagging and ramps that prevent fragmented weeds from escaping the area for sow and spread to other places. This method helps preserve wild rice in a way that does not use harmful chemicals to control invasive species.

“I am so grateful to the Saginaw Chippewa tribal leaders and environmental staff who hosted my EGLE colleagues and I for a beautiful day on Lake Tawas,” said Director Clark. “Witnessing the largest bed of wild rice in the state, learning about the central place wild rice plays in the culture and history of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe, and spending time with good people who share a strong commitment to the environment has been very fulfilling and rewarding.We look forward to our continued work with Tribal Nations and the Michigan Wild Rice Initiative to help protect and restore the manoomin in Michigan.

Wild rice, also called manoomin, has ecological, social, cultural, and economic value in the state, especially and specifically to Native Americans in the region. The tribes see themselves as guardians charged with protecting the wild rice.

Unfortunately, there are many threats facing the manoomin, such as climate change, development, and invasive species. Preserving Michigan’s Water Heritage: A Strategy for the Next Generation (Water Strategy) recognized the importance of manoomin in 2016, when it recommended that the state work with federally recognized tribes and other stakeholders with an interest in preserving and enhancing of manoomin resources across the state “to uplift the recognition, protection and restoration of native wilderness. rice stands throughout the state. (Recommendation #11). In 2018, these groups came together to form the Michigan Wild Rice Initiative which brings together specialists and managers from the 12 federally recognized tribes, several state departments and federal agencies, and others to share information, coordinate approaches and increase awareness of wild rice. conservation and restoration.

1. What is ranked voting?

Preferential voting (RCV) is an electoral method that allows voters to rank candidates in order of preference (first choice, second choice, third choice, etc.). Ranking candidates is different from simply selecting a candidate or what is known as plurality voting. (The source: https://www.rcvresources.org/what-is-rcv)

2. How does ranking voting work?

If a candidate gets more than half of the first choices, that candidate wins, as in any other election. However, if there is no majority winner after the first picks are counted, the race is decided by an instant second round. The candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated and voters who ranked that candidate as their first choice will have their votes count towards their next choice. This process continues until a majority winner, or candidate wins, with more than half of the vote. Ranking voting works just as well when there are several seats to be filled. The winning threshold is adjusted according to the number of seats to be filled. A similar process of eliminating and electing candidates by rounds of counting occurs until all seats are filled.

If the folder where your browser downloads the information you download via the network is not the one you want, you can always change it to another where you feel more comfortable. We tell you how to do it in the main web browsers currently available.

Switching web browsers, downloading a type of file, and not knowing exactly what folder it was placed in may have happened to you before.

It may also happen that the default folder of the browser is not suitable for you and therefore, whenever you have to search for what you have downloaded, the process becomes something cumbersome or difficult.

But as you well know, in this world of technology, nothing is final and almost everything can be changed. This is a good example, since the main browsers on the market currently allow you to set another default folder for downloads.

If you do not know how to do it, we are going to tell you how to modify said folder, so that you can put the one that you like the most or that is in the most suitable place for you, explained for the browsers that all the world uses today.

Google Chrome

How could it be otherwise, we will start with the most used in the world, Google Chromium.

In the Google browser it is possible to modify, in a very simple and fast way, the location of the default folder to save all kinds of downloads made through this software.

The steps you need to follow are:

  • We click on the three dots located in the upper right corner of Chrome, then, in the drop-down list that appears, click on Setting.
  • Once there, we must enter downloads.
  • We click on the change button and select a new download destination.
  • We can also tell Chrome to ask us where we want to download the file each time we perform such a task, which we will achieve by pressing the option Ask where to save each file before downloading.

MozillaFirefox

The same thing that we have previously managed with Google Chrome, we will be able to do with the Mozilla Firefox browser.

It’s also extremely easy to change the default folder location for downloads. You just have to do the following:

  • We open the browser menu and click on Setting.
  • In the left panel we select General and scroll down to Files and Apps.
  • We click on Exam next to Save files to and select where Firefox should download your files.
  • You can also mark Always ask where to save files so that every time we try to download a file, it asks us for it and thus decides where to save it.

They are the best alternatives to Chrome or Firefox, two of the most popular browsers today, which however have a lot of competition if we are looking for specific features, a different design, security or anonymity.

Microsoft Edge

Obviously in the Microsoft browser it could not be less and it also allows you to change the location of the downloads folder to the one we consider most appropriate.

The steps you need to follow are:

  • We type in the same place where we put the web addresses: edge://parameters
  • So, in the left menu, we click on Edit, next to Location, and select a new download location.

Edge has other very interesting features to manage the files that we download.

We can make Edge ask us where we want to save each file we download as long as we check the option Ask me what to do with each download.

We also have two other options such as Open Office files in browserwhereby any Office-related file will be opened directly in the browser instead of being downloaded, and Show download menu when starting a downloadoption that automatically shows us a window where we see how many files are being downloaded.

Safari

For all users who use Apple operating systems, they should also know that the download folder can be changed, just as we have done with the browsers we have discussed so far.

If we want to achieve this, we simply have to perform the following steps:

  • In the menu bar we click on Safari.
  • We’re going preferences then to General.
  • We open the drop-down menu next to File download location.
  • We click on Other and we put a new location.
  • Additionally, we can set the download location for each file using the option Ask for each download.

How to erase your browsing history in the main browsers?

BraveBrowser

This browser has become very popular lately thanks to the system it incorporates to protect our privacy, being able to block ads and trackers that sometimes cause so much inconvenience.

If this is the browser you usually use, you can also change the location of the downloads to the folder that you like the most and that suits you best.

You will be able to do this if you follow these steps:

  • We write in the same place where we put web pages: brave://parameters
  • We go down the left menu and we select downloads.
  • We click on To change and we set the new location for the files we download from time to time.
  • We can also decide where to save each file by enabling the option Ask where to save each file before downloading.

Opera

In Opera we will also be able to change the downloads folder to the one we want, either because we are running out of space on the disk where these types of files are normally stored, or because we want everything to be redirected to a new location .

There will be no problem when changing this setting in Opera, as it is extremely simple. Here are the steps:

  • We click on the icon Setting.
  • We go down and open the menu Advanced.
  • At that time we should go to downloads then click on To change.
  • So we select a new location for this browser’s downloads.
  • It also allows us to request the location each time we want to download a file.

Vivaldi

The great advantage that Vivaldi has over many other browsers is its speed and that is why many users use it.

Of course, we can also change the default download location as follows:

  • We click on Setting in the lower left corner, then select Downloads.
  • Click on select folder from the download location and navigate to the new location where we want the files to be saved.
  • If we select Save files to default location without asking, it won’t ask us where they are stored.

With all this information, you will be able to change the location of the downloads folder of the main browsers that we all use often.

As you may have read, it is extremely easy to modify this part and place the location that suits us best.

FormBook is now the most prevalent malware, taking over from Emotet, which has held that position since its reemergence in January, according to Check Point Research’s latest Global Threat Index for August 2022.

FormBook is an Infostealer targeting the Windows operating system which, when deployed, can collect credentials, collect screenshots, monitor and log keystrokes, as well as download and execute files based on its command and control (C&C) orders. Since it was first spotted in 2016, it has steadily made a name for itself, marketed as Malware as a Service (MaaS) in underground hacking forums, known for its evasion techniques powerful and its relatively low price.

August also saw a rapid increase in GuLoader activity, making it the fourth most prevalent malware. GuLoader was originally used to download Parallax RAT, but has since been applied to other remote access Trojans and information stealers such as Netwire, FormBook, and Agent Tesla. It is usually distributed through extensive phishing email campaigns, which trick the victim into downloading and opening a malicious file, allowing the malware to get to work.

Additionally, Check Point Research reports that Joker, an Android spyware, is back in business and claimed the third spot in the mobile malware list this month. Once Joker is installed, he can steal text messages, contact lists, and device information, as well as subscribe to paid premium services without his consent. Its rise can partly be explained by an increase in campaigns, as it was recently spotted active in some apps in the Google Play Store.

“The changes we’re seeing in this month’s index, from Emotet rising from first to fifth place to Joker becoming the third most prevalent mobile malware, reflects how quickly the threat landscape can change” , says Maya Horowitz, vice president of research at Check Point. Software.

“This should remind individuals and businesses alike of the importance of keeping up to date with the latest threats because knowing how to protect yourself is essential. Threat actors are constantly evolving and the emergence of FormBook shows that one can never be complacent about security and must take a holistic, prevention-focused approach across networks, endpoints and the cloud. »

The CPR also revealed this month that the education and research sector remains the industry most targeted by cybercriminals globally. Government/military and healthcare taking second and third place as the most attacked sectors. Apache Log4j Remote Code Execution returns to the top spot as the most exploited vulnerability, affecting 44% of organizations worldwide, after overtaking Web Server Exposed Git Repository Information Disclosure which had an impact of 42%.

FSIS is responsible for protecting public health by ensuring the safety of meat, poultry, and egg products. FSIS has approximately 9,600 employees, with the majority of agency employees working on the front lines at more than 6,500 federally inspected facilities across the United States and territories, verifying the production of safe food, safe and properly labelled.

FSIS listed the physical location of each facility in the FSIS MPI Directory and published the facility’s demographics to provide a general description of the production operations for each facility. Establishments may perform a wide range of meat, poultry and egg product production activities, ranging from the slaughter of animals, to the cutting and grinding of raw meat, to the preparation of ready-to-eat products , etc. With an almost limitless list of different products on the market at any one time, FSIS groups these activities into broad categories, which include:

FSIS District: The FSIS district where a facility is located. For more information on FSIS districts: https://www.fsis.usda.gov/contactus/fsis-offices/office-field-operations-ofo.

HACCP size: The size of the establishment according to the business class.

  • Options are Large (= 500 or more employees), Small (10-499 employees), and Very Small (<10 employees or less than $2.5 million in annual sales)
  • This information is only collected for establishments under HACCP.
  • NOTE: This variable is not strongly correlated to production volume

Livestock slaughter: Conduct culling activities for all classes of Beef, Pork, Lamb, Sheep, Goats and Other Meat. “Other Meat” includes the remaining classes that are not already listed.

Poultry slaughter: Conduct culling activities for all classes of Chicken, Turkey, Duck, goose, Rabbit, Pheasant, Quail and Other poultry. “Other poultry” includes the remaining classes that are not already listed.

Treatment: Carry out activities that fall under the following:

  • Raw intact: Rough processing may include cutting, slicing, trimming, etc.
  • Gross not intact: Raw processing can include grinding, stuffing, mixing, etc.
  • TEN: “Ready-to-eat” processing may include cooking, smoking, drying, etc.
  • TRNE: Non-ready-to-eat processing may include partial heating, smoking, drying, etc.
  • Siluriformes: Treatment of Siluriformes
  • Egg products: Egg product processing may include egg breaking, pasteurization, drying, etc.

An establishment can produce products in more than one category. For example, an establishment may slaughter cattle (beef), cut steaks (raw intact), ground beef (raw not intact), and prepare fully cooked hot dogs (RTE). Alternatively, an establishment can produce products in only one category. For example, an establishment may prepare Fully Cooked Hot Dogs (PAM), Luncheon Meat (PAM), and Beef Jerky (PAM). Users may contact the individual establishment for product-specific inquiries.

Inspection activities: The type of inspection activities for which the establishment is approved under its inspection grant.

In September 2005, a funny editor named Robert Ryang took the brilliant and create a new trailer for it, making the ax horror movie look like a darling family movie. YouTube hadn’t come out of beta yet, so Ryang posted his humorous gem to a private area of ​​his employer’s website and gave a few friends a dotmov link. One of them posted the link to his blog, and Ryang became an overnight sensation.

The New York Times remarked, observing with admiration: “His secret site received 12,000 visits.” Ryang also achieved the highest goal of 20th century humanity: he started getting calls from Hollywood. HELLO, THIS IS HOLLYWOOD.

I was a television critic at the time, and when I first saw Ryang’s masterpiece…buffering, buffering“I wasn’t sure I had the right to examine it. Was this digital item a show, movie, commercial, maybe a webpage? While I was thinking about the question, I created a folder called “Internet TV”.

Months passed and YouTube was officially launched. Could it be? The quasi-erotic fantasy of “convergence”—the moment when the internet and television finally merged into some sort of mundane Singularity—had arrived. In June 2006, I wrote on my own blog that people finally seemed “ready to accept video on computers”. Four months later, Google acquired YouTube for $1.65 billion. The original World Wide Web, a static system of low-bandwidth verbal hyperlinks, was over.

since, “internet television”, a phrase that I tried in vain to make happen, pitched its tent everywhere. Video defined what is known as Web 2.0, the only Internet many of us have ever known. And it now accounts for around 82% of online traffic. It’s not just YouTube, Instagram and Snap; even verbal apps, where the stock in commerce is still words — from banter (Twitter) to marketing palavers (LinkedIn) — are on fire with video.

But one application has never quite succeeded with animated images: Facebook. The company acquired Instagram in 2012, the same year it went public, and it seemed to believe its image and video bases were covered.

From the outset, Facebook had differentiated itself from MySpace and then Tumblr, image-laden emo sites that could veer into pornography, by catering to low-bandwidth, more serious consumers of words. Its users have been strongly urged to keep things clean and disclose real names, real bios, real birthplaces, real jobs.

Facebook’s core commitment to text has helped it expand its monster empire to populations underserved by broadband. (People without big data plans still have trouble viewing photos on Facebook’s mobile app.) The app’s text-based interface also sealed its rep as a site for simple facts and user-friendly content. grandmothers.

These world domination strategies had a devastating, albeit unintended, consequence: they left a population of hundreds of millions, and ultimately 2.9 billion, vulnerable to deception. People whose first and foremost contact with the internet was Facebook simply weren’t ready when the platform was hit with particularly serious misinformation in 2015. They were easily fooled. They had come to accept what they saw as facts – as empirical as a name and number in an employee directory, or a college… facebook.

The same users were also sitting ducks for editing mischief when Facebook did start pushing video with Facebook Watch and other streaming products and partnerships. (If I had first seen Ryang’s trailer posted by an aunt on Facebook, I swear I might have cleared things up, decided I still misunderstood the brilliantand torn at “Solsbury Hill”.)

If you love dark mode for nighttime browsing, and you also love Mozilla Firefox, you’ve probably run into a problem: opening new tabs and loading new pages blinds you. Here’s how to make new tabs compatible with dark mode.

Dark mode is great, but white “flash” isn’t

There’s a problem with Firefox’s dark mode that persists, despite various bug fixes over the past few years. If you’re not a dedicated dark mode user, you might not be familiar with this problem. If you are – and I certainly am – you’re probably glad to find that there’s a simple fix that works whether or not the bug is completely squashed.

The problem? Even if you have Firefox in dark mode, every time you open a new blank tab, it’s blindingly white.

Worse, even when you load a webpage that supports dark mode, there’s a brief “flash” where the default white background casts a bright white light on you before the page loads.

It might not seem like the end of the world, but when you’ve carefully set your workspace specifically to prevent your super-bright monitor from blasting you in the face with bright white light, it’s a little shocking.

So forget about being surprised late at night while you work peacefully in dark mode. Let’s deploy a simple solution to make sure those high-brightness sneak attacks are a thing of the past.

Forget browser extensions, tweak your Chrome instead

When it comes to your web browser, if you can fix something in the easiest way possible with the least amount of risk, that’s always for the best. Browser extensions are a security and privacy nightmare.

While you don’t have to avoid them altogether, it’s wise to only stick to add-ons and extensions that are properly reviewed and verified. It’s always a safe bet to avoid random extensions from unknown authors.

With that in mind, we were really happy to find an incredibly easy way to solve our problem without having to search (and review code) for a custom extension coded for the task.

The solution? Taking advantage of a handy little browser modification tool built right into Firefox, the userChrome.css and userContent.css files.

If you break that first filename apart, you get a clue what we’re about to do, it’s a user-provided stylesheet for browser chrome. (The Chrome web browser is actually named chrome browser, and it’s a bit of a joke, at that.) We’ll also, in the name of rigor, modify the userContent.css too.

Enable support for legacy styles

First and foremost, we need to toggle a configuration setting for our little tweak to actually take effect. If you don’t follow this step, you’ll be tearing your hair out in frustration when none of the changes we make will do anything.

Launch Firefox and type about:config in the address bar. Ignore the warning if it appears. Use the search box to search toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets . The default is false, double-click the entry to set it to true.

Locate your profile directory

First, we need to locate where the configuration files for your particular Firefox installation are located. Launch Firefox and type about:profiles in the address bar. This will list all of your Firefox browser profiles and provide a convenient direct link to your profile root directory.

Select the profile you want to make this dark mode tweak on and click the “Open Folder” button next to the list entry for “Root Directory.”

For Windows users, this directory will look something like C:Users[YourUserName]AppDataRoamingMozillaFirefoxProfiles[ProfileName] where YourUserName is your Windows username and ProfileName is an alphanumeric string generated by Firefox like fxxd088p.default-release .

Create a Chrome directory and styling files

If you’re looking for stylesheet solutions to this particular problem, there are several variations, some unnecessarily complex, but we’ve used very simple code snippets. shared by github user gmolveau for years with great success and recommend that you do the same.

In the profile directory, create a new subdirectory called chrome. We will create two stylesheet files in this directory.

Create a new blank text document in this directory and paste the following code into it:

tabbrowser tabpanels { background-color: rgb(19,19,20) !important; }
browser { background-color: #131314 !important; }

Save the file as userChrome.css. This piece of code will fix the bright white flicker that occurs between page loads.

Create another blank text document and paste this code:

@-moz-document url-prefix(about:blank) {
    html > body:empty {
        background-color: rgb(19,19,20) !important;
    }
}
@-moz-document url(about:blank) {
    html > body:empty {
        background-color: rgb(19,19,20) !important;
    }
}

Save the file as userContent.css. This piece of code will ensure that the blank tabs are a very dark gray and not a bright white.

You can change the muted gray to any color you want using the appropriate RGB and hex codes. If you wanted jet black, for example, you could replace each instance of 19,19,20 above with 0,0,0 and each instance of #131314 with #0A0A0A.

Or, if you wanted to vote for total anarchy, we guess you could opt for neon green: 117,225,51 #75FF33 . Whatever color you fancy, you can use a simple RGB selector to select the correct codes.

Once you’ve created the files, simply restart Firefox for the changes to take effect (if they don’t take effect, make sure you’ve enabled legacy support as shown in step one).

Now you can test it. You can check the empty tab color in your Firefox installation by typing about:blank in the address bar.

Testing the “flash” page load is a little trickier. The easiest way to test it is to visit a web page and open a few links from that page in new tabs.

Sometimes it’s hard to catch, especially on a fast connection to an optimized webpage, but if you load a few you should be able to catch the color change. In the screenshot above you can see how the color flash between page loads is no longer white but the muted gray we selected.

If, after all this, you really have dark mode on your mind, now is the perfect time to enable dark mode everywhere.
