I saw that Android supports pointing devices and got curious. Yup, the original USB mouse, the infamous iMac hockey puck works.

There's a reason we had a 90% income tax on the top bracket back in the 50s.

Because it prevented shitheads like him from amassing a fortune he'll never use.

I got an idea: why not pay his fucking employees a living wage, you shithead?

There are a LOT of reasons why we might see an increase in recorded prevalence of a medical condition over time. Among them:

* We're getting better at identifying it
* The diagnostic criteria have changed
* The stigma around reporting it has reduced
* An underserved population is being more closely examined
* The prevalence is actually going up

(This toot brought to you by antivaxxers.)

Webdesign (including fonts) got so bad that there's actually a "reader mode" in browsers now that makes sites look like they did 20 years ago

OK, modified to add a 1x to the srcset, and then a fallback image.

So the idea here is... if I'm being *really* serious about helping old browsers access it? Old browsers don't know what a PNG is.

This way, I can make a (web-safe colors, of course) GIF or a JPEG the default, upgrading to a PNG with the magic of srcset.

Granted, this means that a whole lot of browsers from the 2000s and first half of the 2010s will get the fallback. (Try it in IE11, or a browser from before ~2015.)
