I like writing letters and postcards but they cost a fortune to send here. I'm just going to start taking pictures of them and emailing the letters for a bit. It might not be quite as nice but it's something.

That was a bit of a moment.
I was just watching ' "Is Starfleet Actually The Bad Guy" episode of as he started talking about the episode "Journey's End", while the update notification/ad for 's latest expansion/update pops up, which is also titled o_O

@hntooter In my experience, developers hate PHP because they’ve used it (OK, so that’s personal experience talking.) To be fair, though, in 1995 it was a breath of fresh air when I was coding my web apps in C and Coldfusion was the only other higher-level alternative. (Yes, I’m that old) ;)

I once asked Rasmus what *he* thought of PHP and he replied “I don’t know, I never use it… I do all my coding in C.” :)

In 1998, a Finnish band called ‘Panasonic’ was threatened with a lawsuit by the electronics corporation of the same name. The band changed the name to ‘Pan Sonic’ and in 1999 released an album called ‘A’.

Oh, apparently I missed that is also going to be online-only...

(Original titles: High School Graduation 1 & 2)

Right, time to get some sleep before I make any more blasphemous puns. :)

I, the difference between being able to 'run' or 'ruin' something.

The creators of SimCity had a division that made Sim games for corporations, including a game for Chevron called SimRefinery.

For the first time ever: this is the story of Maxis Business Simulations

This is the culmination of four years of research, and I'm so proud to share it 💚

Using a gradient as a palette is interesting, but I wish there's a better option like Playful Palette Adobe did but it never took off. freepik.com/blog/adobe-playful I currently use #Coolorus. If anyone knows something similar, please tell!

The little boy huddled tighter under the play gym, tears stinging his eyes. It was getting dark and this was the only familiar structure he'd seen.

A small furry face appeared in one of the holes at the side of the gym. Yellow eyes, white fur, and a pink velvet nose. A small cat.

The boy stared. He willed with all his heart for it to come into the gym with him, but he didn't want to reach out and scare it.

After a moment, the cat said, 'Are you lost?'

Cube Droid for the #MSX has been on halt for some months so what better to get back into the game by writing some fun... oh, wait, I'm out of ROM memory, dammit!

Instead of fun, I did some tooling and compression for the graphics this evening. Eerily like real work! 🤔

okay, modified an example to get access to the headers, and modified the to allow unsafe-inline styles as well for now.
Once I get a bit more time, I'll either use a nonce instead, or dump the into this extension and hash the entire style so I can add the hash to the instead.

@FiXato why controversial there is only one answer to each if those "vs." and everything else are just Windows users with emacs who can't stand Pineapple on a pizza while drinking coffee. In other words: odd people. No debate to be done with those :blobfoxwinkmlem:
