Hey @Gargron I've been posting some GIF turntables on my feed and noticing that the loop is clipped so that it isn't a smooth 360 rotation. Is this a bug?

No computer monitor is complete without a keyboard, so I modelled my Filco Majestouch-2 Tenkeyless keyboard. Again, no textures, and you can see a turntable GIF of it.

#China releases "recommended" guideline standards relating to #infosec and #networking setups for businesses wishing to operate within its borders. One facet of this makes it more difficult for US companies to enter the market fueling the #trade #war.

If you've used Vimperator before on , you might be interested in Tridactyl! For those who are unfamiliar, it adds key bindings to interact with Firefox Quantum so you never need to reach for your mouse. Things like j/k to scroll down/up, gg/G to jump to top/bottom, and so on.
