Joni Mitchell - Same Situation

The song, the arrangement, the performance - perfection!

1980, The Damned, The History fo the World Part 1

My favourite punk band of all time:

just updated to 19.0.2

I started using Nextcloud at version 10x and have never had any problems...

...except the update from 18x to 19.0.1 which stopped half way through and I had to delete a .step file to continue.

Not bad at all! 👍 👍 👍

-- that problematic transparent <table> border *can* be rendered as a box-shadow 👍

also there is a bug in chromium -- if you have a transparent border (no matter where is is -- <thead> <tr> <th> <tbody> <td> ecc..) it renders *below* the table cells on the first column 😠

I'm only getting second-hand reports, but I'll say it in case there's anyone listening that needs to hear it:

When people speak of racism, they are talking about a system - a specific system, which demonstrably exists today, and which has been a very consequential and deeply-connected component of the modern period.

If you find yourself wanting to talk about racism-like systems in other times, consider carefully whether you are in a situation where that would be appropriate, relevant, and respectful.
