@darius @nolan I've been a tab hoarder my whole life, because I don't like the bookmarking systems browsers provide.

After building my own bookmarking website and putting everything I fear losing there, I find I'm quickly becoming a tab killer. I have to admit it's liberating.

@InvaderXan I updated a month ago. Took me ~4 hours of mucking around until a random stranger's advice in StackOverflow happened to solve my particular issue. Just the same as in 2002 when I started using Linux 😔
(well, now at least I don't have to deal with winmodems, and I haven't had to recompile the kernel in a few years, so it's getting better. Slowly)

— So why did you use such a dark paint there?
— That's not paint. It's blood
— Oh. The whole of it?
— Yup

I have started building a bunk bed for our kid and his future sibling. My left hand now has 7 new small injuries. 🤦🏻‍♂️Hopefully I'll finish it before I lose an arm, a leg or a head.

That side-project I've talked a bit about? It's a link storage service. Basically, a place to store links you don't want to forget about.

And I just implemented Markdown support for their descriptions, so you can actually put whatever you want in there

For a moment there, I was worried my server code might be too slow, as I'm doing things the simplest way possible.

So I added performance reporting to the website, and first try after uploading new version to the server prints: "Rendered in 0.790 ms"

Ok, we're good

@InvaderXan @anarchiv I've seen it phrased as "The right looks for allies. The left looks for traitors".

@xiroux yeah, maybe. But most of those end up in the "almost there" region. You might get a pop-up window, but then if you click outside of it it doesn't close... Or keyboard navigation doesn't work... Etc etc. Best case scenario, the js-free website is going to have some degraded behavior 😔

@mynamesleon yeah, I tried that for a pop-up window, but it quickly became quite a rabbit hole 😔

@mynamesleon it's a website where you add, remove, and edit elements from a list. Most of it I can do with POST requests and server-side logic. But things like menus or making the "add thing" pop-up show up become pretty hard to do well without JS :-\

I'd like to support people having JS disabled in their browser when visiting the website I'm working on, but it's starting to become a real limitation.

How do people support this usecase on websites that are minimally interactive?

Huh, I put my shoes in the washing machine (they really needed it), and they came out with the hole pattern of the washing machine's drum imprinted on the fabric.

I guess I'll be extra fashionable today 🤷🏻‍♂️

Side-project progress speed:
- Implement 3 missing features: 1 hour
- Choose a font for the website: until the heat death of the universe

After 4 years separated, we're finally together. I've missed you, you steampunk beauty

@trickster yeah, no idea what's gonna happen with it. We don't want the seagulls to suffer, but we also don't want to have our eyes pecked out 😕

Saga continues. Seagull nesting in terrace means ice cream is also canceled now

Conversation in the company chat. Seagulls are nesting in our terrace. Terrace is canceled

Currently in that beautiful phase where the side-project's to-do list grows three times quicker than I can finish things.

Maybe "beautiful" wasn't the word I was looking for. "Terrifying" might fit better
