If I'm lucky my new chair might arrive next week. *wriggle*
They have to custom-make it since shorties like me are on the rarer side. 😁
I learned something interesting recently. This thread might be of interest to short people (I'm 160cm - slightly under 5'3"). I've worked in office-based settings for about 15 years and only recently discovered - I've been sitting wrong this whole time.
This appears to have actually worked. Thanks, inbox.
No more emails today please, I'm still catching up from yesterday. 📧🚫
Ooooooh, I may have just found my favourite new colour picker tool: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/CSS_Colors/Color_picker_tool (and naturally it's on @MozDevNet@twitter.com 💖💖💖)
It makes it really easy to select a set of colours and show them side-by-side, then grab the colour code to use in your code or editor tool! 🎨
If you use @StackOverflow@twitter.com for your coding questions (and I think every programmer does), remember answers are licenced CC-BY-SA 3.0 - this means you _must_ give credit where due.
This is easy to do! Just copy & paste links to the Q and author profile. https://stackoverflow.blog/2009/06/25/attribution-required/

I came across a really nice example of a CONTRIBUTING file today: https://gitlab.com/stemcellbioengineering/context-explorer/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md - includes estimates of how long it might take to tackle issues. Nice!
(I was pleased and utterly unsurprised to find out that the author was part of the @MozOpenLeaders@twitter.com community 😆)
Hey, #webdevs, you know that thing you do where content only loads when your tab is foregrounded? It's bullshit, cut it out.
I get that you don't want to waste cycles on a tab that will never be viewed, but I don't want to waste human attention on a window with nothing in it.
I write programs and eat lots of vegetables, often in Cambridge, UK.
