I really like this experimental typeface — it’s exactly the kind of thing I’d hoped typographers would do with variable fonts. And at least one of the axes really appeals to me, so that’s a plus. https://marbla.de/

@reginasbread Not exactly what you posit, but Martha Wells’ Murderbot Diaries fit a fair portion of this bill.

Exactly 20 years and 20 minutes ago, this happened.

Clearly this is what the Shapiros and Rowlings of the world and their associated lampreys mean by “go woke, go broke”.

I know I have very little ground on which to comment on the beauty of a typeface, but this variable font is SO GOOD and I really wish I’d found it before “CSS: The Definitive Guide, 5th Edition” published a month back, because it would have been perfect for the examples in the Fonts chapter.

Twitter learned, and Reddit is fast learning, that people are not addicted to the platform, they’re addicted to the community they found there. Ruin the community, and people will leave the platform. It really is that simple.

Just submitted a pull request to a 6.7MB text file containing just over a million words in which I changed two words from their homophonic near-equivalents to the proper versions of those words because yes, I am exactly that kind of nerd.

I just used a handheld supercomputer to contribute a tiny improvement to an openly available titanic compendium of human knowledge via a globe-spanning network while lying in my bed.

I was never promised this future, and I am grateful to have been a part of it.

Nearly every page on https://meyerweb.com — except for the blog portion, which runs on WordPress — uses server-side includes to assemble the page, as in <!--#include virtual="/inc/page-top.html" -->.

Don’t sweat about being “behind the times”. If it works, it’s stable, and it’s performant, your tech stack is fine.

Here’s what happens when you toot a poll that has no content in the poll options.

Sits okay with me, but I bet it’s intimidating to people who don’t know what HTTP is, let alone what its error codes are like. Or don’t realize that this single line of text isn’t a single error.

The transphobes really are running riot over Twitter these days. Not that they weren’t there before, but the mass and intensity has surged in the past month or so.

I could make a snarky “what a strange coincidence” comment about that, but it’s neither of those things and I can’t bring myself to joke about it. It’s just sad and terrible and disheartening.
