Web development 

I'm in need of some Friday inspiration... What has caught your eye in the world of web development recently? Perhaps a new technique / library / tool, or a great blog post that has excited you? Thanks in advance! 🙏

Seriously if yer American & have a chronic illness & are somewhat young & are considering emigrating, move emigration up yer priority list. Cuz if you get a second chronic illness, this system is not set up to manage both. I don’t care how rich you are.

Autism, likely torture 

So I just found out about a school in Massachusetts that regularly electro shocks its students who have intellectual disabilities like autism. The worst part is, that the FDA banned the use of these devices, but that ban was just overturned allowing their use again.

Alright hivemind. As I mentioned, my father passed away last week. Thankfully I was able to pull the majority of his files off the drive, unencrypted.

What tools exist, preferably on Linux, for organizing, categorizing, and compiling heterogeneous data?

Your daily reminder that the enemy of your enemy is not necessarily your friend.

Case in point: right-libertarian and far-right asshats hate Big Tech too… but for all the wrong reasons. We have NOTHING in common with those douchebags and they can fuck the fuck right off.

My friend once said: A lot of what looks “whoa how did you do that?!” comes down to “sat down and did all the 500 steps, one by one”.

Want to watch me slowly do steps one at a time? I'm trying to get back to streaming my work regularly. Live now working on making email servers radically easier to self-host! stream.sequentialread.com

Hey, , do you use (say, at least once per week) any Mozilla products?

Context: some people are claiming "nobody uses Mozilla's products anymore". I'd like to see if that's actually true.

Started out shitposting; ended up with both the highest- and lowest-rated comments on the same Reddit post trololol

In NYC at least two dental practices do not mandate vaccination for employees. Is this the case all over?

. I’ve been using it as my regular browser and it’s just grand. I love it everyday.

It makes me want to change all the w3m keybindings to vim-like. I bothered to get my xterm configuration right just so I could have decent image support in w3m. Changing the keybindings would make w3m way more usable.

Anyway if you’re a vim user and haven’t checked out qutebrowser, give it a test drive.
