Giving #react another try.
It seems like if something doesn't quite click with me, if I let it gestate a year then come back to it, I find it all suddenly makes sense.

I think the greatest sin of SV is the idea that something needs to be a runaway broad success to be considered valuable.

There were some cool communities on G+, particularly I'm thinking about OSR and some of the fantasy map making groups that I enjoyed.
Here's hoping the fediverse can pick some of them up.
Dusting off the react gloves.
Realizing that I haven't made a react commit since February 2017, and even then I found it confusing.
But at the time I was on this, I must completely understand the fundamental architecture of all my tools kick.
Which proved to be a lot less useful than the throw everything at a wall and see what sticks approach.
I am so digging #inktober on Mastodon, even if I'm not participating.
The latest update seems to have broken Kypass on the old MBP leaving me without access to my password vault.
I spent three hours last night getting KeePass 2 to work with Win Bundler. A lot of clicking random things, rebuild, wait 30 minutes. See if it works. Nope. Check and uncheck some other things. Try again.
@lordbowlich At a guess: 1) The history of browser plugins is discouraging. Flash was insecure and PDFs could be slow or poorly rendered. 2) XHTML failed to turn HTML into just another XML dialect.
As the XML thing turned out, I do have a browser that can handle RSS, Atom, SVG, and with the right extension EPUB. Its very user interface is written in XUL.
I use it to read mostly text/html pages, and often run into problems with sites that weren't properly tested cross-browser.
I must've been spoiled with good improv comedy going to college so close to Chicago. Paid $43 tonight to see a professional troupe out on the east coast and while they where technically brilliant -- like I was really impressed by their ability to pull together a coherent narrative on the spot, not contradict prior statements etc. they just weren't funny.
Ended up leaving during the intermission when I realized Evil Dead II was playing in the theatre in the same building.
@silverwizard There was a short period of time where it was envisioned that the end user would apply their own stylesheet on all websites and it was the role of the developer to step aside and make sure their markdown was syntactically accurate enough that the user stylesheet could be applied beautifully.
But no, a bunch of egos got in the way and now we get top-down dictation of how things "should" look.
