Looks like I‘m gonna talk about accessibility at this year’s CLT ^^

The talk will mostly be an adaptation of what I’ve shown at rC3 but in german language and with (hopefully) better audio quality.

I now know for a fact that the delivery hasn't even left the restaurant because something I had ordered wasn't available and they just called to ask what we want instead..

Lieferando order "tracking": $restaurant has confirmed that your order is being prepared and will be there in $minutes
[shortly before the timer runs out]
$restaurant has confirmed that your delivery will arrive soon

dev tools network tab: only 1 request, fetching a different gif

I kind of doubt that anyone confirmed anything here

Already submitted two talks for , this years first at Easter.

One is about emoji domains and the other about dark patterns, I hope they’ll be accepted ^^

I‘ve got a better Webcam with a working microphone now so the sound quality issues from probably won’t reoccur :D

My CV is written in HTML because that's what I'm good at and that's what I would do in the jobs I apply to.

To make sending it per mail easier I pack CSS and minify everything.

Today I've written an incredibly basic packer using python and a makefile to automate that ^^

I'm working on a second part to my emoji domain blog post and if reading it is as even close to as much fun as researching it, you can look forward to it ^^

No component is at 100% utilization during use.

It's kind of funny that even in 2017 people were complaining about the hardware in this thing when I have no issues working with it today.

These M1 Macs look neat and I would love the battery life but I don't really see any reasons to upgrade from my trusty little notebook.

Last year I was looking to replace my 2017 MacBook air because it refused to sleep and got kind of slow.

The former issue was fixed with a macOS reinstall and the latter by putting in a larger and faster SSD (and installing Arch for software that runs on it)

Now that my containers no longer run in a VM, I don't see a single component in this computer that is a bottleneck.
(Except for the cooler when playing factorio, but that's more fun on the desktop I built in 2014 either way)

I am not entirely sure how this happened to be honest.

I'll just say it's typo squatting myself to prevent others from doing that.

This is good to know, however I won't stop working on reducing that JavaScript download size to zero because main functionality on user facing parts of my blog can work without it.

yo can anyone think of some good rust interview prep questions or technical interview advice in general for a friend going for an interview?

i cannot think of anything

As a child I really wanted "a website" without actually knowing what to put on it.
I think if I knew that there would be a time where I'd launch multiple websites in a single week, I'd be hyped.

Since that child still lives inside me I know because I am kind of hyped :D

I wrote a small blog post, talking about my journey trying to get and use a emoji domain:

Lets see what my next small side project will be.

Next up: build some drone pipelines to automatically deploy all those little static HTML thingies I’ve built in the last few days.

Never used drone before but it’s free and I really want to try it out.

That is probably the first time I ever reached 100 on all audits (well except for pwa but this really does not need to be one)

I don't know if I should laugh or cry right now.

I just love how safari colors in the pride flags in the header according to the background colors once you manage to open the site. That did not happen on my desktop.

This is a bug that is too fun to fix, especially since this is basically a throwaway joke site.

Another fun thing: safari on mobile won't even attempt to open the domain when entered using emoji.

This may be my website with the worst seo ever.

Whatever, since I learned something, I don't consider my time wasted.

On the bright side, this pretty much useless domain taught me one thing: punycode domains are a pain and should be avoided at all cost.

Here is the wonderful website I created so it's not empty, in punycode to make sure the link works:

Yesterday I had the wonderful idea of registering the domain 💜🏳️‍⚧️.ws, however since the registrar doesn't support emoji 13, it got converted to 💜🏳⚧.ws, which is totally different punycode (I hope this even displays correctly on here)

My email server does not support emoji in domains so at the moment I can't use it as a fun email address.

This evening was rather frustrating to be completely honest.
