Hide blocked users on Discord

When you block a user on Discord, you still get an option to show the user's messages. This can defeat the purpose of blocking, it can be bad for your health.

The following CSS snippet will hide a blocked user's messages for good. It can be used with Stylish or any other extension that allows override a website's style.

Fixing permissions for MacPorts local repositories

Permissions for local MacPorts repositories

Getting local Portfile repository for MacPorts running is difficult, if not annoying. The documentation doesn't provide much help or, worse, is even outdated. Hopefully, the following steps will help avoiding the problem I had.


  1. Download and run the MacPorts installer

  2. Unlike specified in the documentation, the installer did not add /opt/local/bin to my PATH environmental variable. However, since I don't use the default macOS shell, the problem might actually be on my end.

“Open in Visual Studio Code” in macOS context-menu

Open in Visual Studio Code

  • Open Automator
  • Create a new document
  • Select Quick Action
  • Set “Service receives selected” to files or folders in any application
  • Add a Run Shell Script action
    • your default shell should already be selected, otherwise use /bin/zsh for macOS 10.15 (”Catalina”) or later
    • older versions of macOS use /bin/bash
  • if you're using something else, you probably know what to do 😉
