Why is the new Node 18 CLI test runner a flag `node --test` instead of a sub-command `node test`?

It even has conflicting flags, ugh...

I'm gonna say it. The new default GNOME theme does not look very accessible. Aesthetics are a matter of opinion but I find it really hard to determine active areas of controls and I think others will too. It's a shame.

Not that exciting but I finally included TypeScript types in my CSS declaration sorter package! :)

I feel like we're exiting an era of "IE11 is our baseline" and entering an era of "Well, maybe old Safari on iPad is our baseline? Or old versions of Chrome on Chromebook? Or maybe legacy Edge?" It's actually pretty confusing.

Design peeve: icons with a none/off/disabled state using a / stroke instead of a \ stroke.

The internationally-recognized “ban” symbol has a stroke from top-left to bottom-right, so it would make sense for your icons to, too. 😉

You know how docker containers get a random name assigned when you don't specify one yourself? Names are randomly generated and look like "inspiring_pike" or "competent_darwin".

Turns out there's a special check in the code that prevents it from ever generating the name "boring_wozniak" 😄

In the end, we might just need to embrace that incidents are uncontrollable and deploy when we have value to ship to the customer. Perhaps the code freeze is just a sense of false safety?
