Not sure folk are aware that using Google fonts by URL in their CSS undermines the privacy of each and every site visitor, sending their IP to GG with every visit. How? Because with each visit they download the font from GG, not your server.

If you will use GG fonts, don't do this

@import url('fonts.googleapis.com/css?famil[...]

Download that font, and resource it locally instead

@font-face {
font-family: FontName';
font-style: normal;
src: url('../fonts/FontName.woff2');

The @EU_Commission gets good interaction on their toots, even though they are merely Twitter crossposts.

Like the highly controversial and insanely bad proposed legislation around . See the @Chartodon chart and this thread:

Now compare to the Musk'O Bird site where they have 1.6 million followers..

apparently my elderly neighbor has been maintaining a personal website about the history of UK photography and it is an incredible piece of work.

apparently he still uses some piece of adobe software from the 90s. there is so much care and effort here, and its such a pristine image of the early web being still updated 😭

The EU Commission is planning automatic CSAM scanning of your private communication – or total surveillance in the name of child protection. This would be the worst surveillance apparatus outside of China:

“The things that make the promise of a metaverse intriguing, for the most part, already exist in online games. And much of what remains of that promise is unappealing, impossible, or greedy.”

If you need to write HTML for a login or account management site, I got a little tip for you.

The input's "autocomplete" attribute can be more than just "on" or "off"!

You can actually set autocomplete to "username" or "current-password", to help a password manager find the right fields.

In the case of changing passwords, you can set autocomplete to "current-password" or "new-password" to avoid password managers trying to autofill your current password into the new password field.
