Testing posting #indieweb videos via email and the iOS camera app:
Bookmarklet of the day: jsgif for giving GIFs controls. Pause, skip, reverse — it’s all there and not too slow either!
Congratulations to all my friends who got into university, and congratulations too to those who decided to take a different path. You’re all awesome :)
Having fun with tour.golang.org/#35
E.G. if I’ve replied to one of your notes/tweets and stored a reply context so even if your copy goes down my content still makes sense, but you delete the original — should I delete it, devaluing my own content? Should I mark it as changed or deleted?
MDN says FF has “implemented” the SVG text module, then goes on to list 13 presentation attributes which “don’t work”. How exactly does that count as implementing the module? Grr. This is why
@supports is doomed.
@seb_ly also kinda hilarious that they threaten to “print out” reposts. Tempted to alter my print styles to give them a little surprise…
Are there any languages with datatypes with built in version control? Would be pretty great for debugging.
Some of my favourite humour comes from the dissonance created when maths and dry, scientific language is used to analyse creative license. This is a classic example:
I love trying to introspect humour, attempting to articulate exactly what it is about something which makes it so funny. In this case I think it stems from the fact that the source material was intended to be passively consumed. At first, the presenter defies this intention by deconstructing the physics involved — a form of intense seeing.
This on its own might be moderately amusing, but instead of simply saying “this is not possible”, he actually acknowledges the original intention and assumes that it must be possible (“I saw it on TV, it must be true!”).
I think the humour here comes from the fact that, despite clearly having the skills to debunk the animation, he barely even acknowledges that he has that choice, and instead changes his own understanding of the show to make it fit (e.g. the ponies are made of dark matter).

Quick poll: “schedule” as “sked-you-ull” or “shed-you-ull”?
Aaron Parecki sssh! I got a good thing going on here :D
This is your periodic reminder that fungi are amazing and vitally important to life on earth — but, schools always prioritise animals and plants. Correct this inbalance! Learn about the wonders of hyphae! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fungus
Aral Balkan just booking my flights+accommodation etc., any news RE the design workshop you mentioned? Would be handy to know if solidified so I can adjust travel plans :)
Just in case anyone was wondering, the “HA HA HA SOUP” bookmark in those gifs is this bookmarklet:
document.createTreeWalker is actually pretty great.
