In case you missed it, this December GTK blog from Emmanuele reflects on the incredible amount of work hundreds of contributors put into GTK 4.0 over the last four years.

I got a first draft of a teaser for the audiodramas I've been enjoying! Uploaded to:

I'm not really sure what I'm doing... Currently 11 minutes long.


Currently I'm looking for some good laughter to represent The Red Panda Adventures... What fraction of that show is laughter?

I've already got good snippets for:
* ars Paradoxica
* Black Jack Justice
* The Bright Sessions
* Magus Elgar
* Old Gods of Appalachia
* Welcome to Night Vale
* & Wolf359

I think this'll be enough to form a good teaser!

Leave it to JS if you actually want floats I guess.

Because I like making Massive Markdown Tables of Shit, I made a massive markdown table of various tasks and suitedness, as well as some physical characteristics, of different computing / electronic devices: desktops, laptops, tablets, mobile, ebook readers, embedded/dedicated devices, servers, cloud.

(That should open to the appropriate comment on the thread, if not, scroll down to the large table.)

O.K., I'll expand on that clarification here.

Error recovery in CSS simply involves ignoring anything I don't (yet?) support. It's trivial! I've implemented it!

WHATWG justified HTML error correction by referring to CSS, but WHATWG HTML's rules differ for the different elements. There's not that many implementations which gets it standards-compliant.

Instead the HTML parser I use has a simpler approach that works perfectly fine on most existing pages. No need for WHATWG's complexity!

A super-talented artist by the name of Stéphane Richard (known previously as Wootha) dropped a bunch of their work into the public domain.

How much?


#PublicDomain #HolyShit

I just updated

Mostly spelling corrections, but I also added a few more links (also to ) & clarifications. I was looking for link on that first blogpost to backup my voice assistants are considered cool!

e.g. I clarified that I'm not opposed to error recovery in HTML, I just don't think the complexity in WHATWG's standard is justified

If you ever liked my microreviews I posted on my playvicious account, and you're neurodivergent, you'll love(maybe?) my multi paragraph reviews on #SolGarden, a forum for all #neurodivergent folks which particularly centers #BIPOC! (Yes non-BIPOC folks are welcomed)

Here is our Code of Conduct:

Post using #SolGardenInvite to let us know you'd like to join! If you have a neurodivergent friend not on Mastodon, let us know and we can get them an invite!


FYI You probably won't hear much from me this week, starting tomorrow. I've got a business trip.

I'll tell you how it went on Friday!

"While it is possible to 'finish' a web document, the fixed information becomes stagnant, thus abolishing any desire for a return visit. This is something I call a cob-web page."

Starting ISP 

@fikran you'd need to either connect to an IP exchange (likely expensive) or use a large bandwidth connection and build a network of there like nycmesh or guifi net using a combination of long range wireless and cable

Starting ISP 

I do not plan to start my own ISP, but hypothetically if I wanted to in a rural area, how would one do that?

Where do you run fiber from? I understand you can off existing infrastructure?

Just curious how one would do this.

B# (Be Sharp) is a small, modern, object-oriented language designed explicitly for small footprint embedded systems. #dev #programming

GNOME OS is so useful for so many things. I can test a future version of apps that depend on newer versions of system libraries (like gnome-online-accounts) without any sort of friction. I just have to run GNOME OS in a VM.

@brainblasted I experience the exact same thing when developing web browsers!

Pain point of contributing to a Music app: you end up not wanting to restart the app when you start playing a good song.
