In #openstreetmap very nerdy stuff: 2022 might be the 1st year, because of the final demise of flash, that there will be no edits with Potlatch 0/1 since the beginning of modern OSM. ...

Kinda happy to keep working in my little WebGL reinvention of web maps. Still, I still need to do a OOP wrapper over more obscure WebGL things like instanced rendering and texture arrays. Encapsulation is key to me keeping the architecture understandable.

As the tooltip points out, it's because #OpenStreetMap is powering Apple Maps (in lots, but not all, places), and #OSM is actually pretty good.

Come join us, and help make a map of the world for everyone.

The joy of testing bugs in microsoft web browsers is realizing that microsoft web pages don't display on microsoft's own web browsers.
I have sudden urges to grab those "we have standards" promotional materials from a few years ago and suggest microsoft folks a bodily orifice to store them in.

It seems that competition is tight on the workshops. Having room for only 40 of the 95 proposed 'shops means that my plans to go full-on nerding about WebGL will have to wait.

Today, in "reasons I hate WebGL": allocating more textures than GL_MAX_COMBINED_TEXTURE_IMAGE_UNITS will silently freeze my browsers. No warning, no errors, just a GPU+OpenGL stack that needs a full computer reboot.

Doing some work on raster fidelity. Having arbitrary scale/zoom factors is awesome but there's a need to round up/down to a 1:1 raster/screen pixel ratio. Which works.
Besides, having Moiré artifacts due to unmipmapped pixel interpolation is always fun & trippy.
