Checking in briefly. Friends are all still alive, and a particular pink-haired gamedev is still swearing at Unity. Seems like business as usual.

Just reporting that I am still alive and do read this, though I have nothing non-political to post at the moment.

Today I found out you can capture DOM elements as a screenshot in Safari’s Developer Tools.

Looking forward to tomorrow. And thanks to SMASH!, I now know how to get to the ICC 😅

Why did you click on this??

I kinda want a fork of Mastodon where button says NYOOT instead and you get a GIF of Pingu every time you Nyoot.

Why can I only interact with a toot from my timeline and not from a user's profile page? :S
