Sway 1.0 Highlights
it took several guesses and attempts and borrowing back the one i gave to a friend but i finally have this 128x64 OLED display working on my mitosis #keyboard receiver
next step: design some visualization to display on it and integrate with #QMK firmware
i wish there was a way to specify that this video should loop
@david It takes a while to get used to the Firefox tools but I think I do prefer them now (although no doubt partly because they are more familiar now).
My weekend of digital maintenance continues with an upgrade of my little RAM Host OpenBSD machine. The upgrade to 6.4 seems to have gone smoothly. Here's to another 192 days of uptime.

Finished reading the release notes for #OpenBSD 6.4. Wow! In addition to the big stuff (RETGUARD, Spectre mitigations, and unveil(2)), so much new, improved, and fixed stuff in 6.4. Tons of new drivers.
And lots of polish:
+ ifconfig join
+ dhclient(8) now has the '-r' option to release the current lease and exit
+ lam(1) now provides UTF-8 support.
+ Mandoc can now format the manuals of the groff port.
One more thing.... Actually, dozens: http://www.openbsd.org/64.html

(1/6) People tend to think of HTTP/HTML/CSS/JS as web things and believe that to use any of them you have to embed a whole web browser. "You wanted a banana but what you got was a gorilla holding the banana and the entire jungle."
But the great thing about the web is how the technologies it's built on are open, work great with each other, but are actually independent and largely orthogonal.
