The main problem with Github being bought by Microsoft isn't MS.
It's that in 2018 we still haven't learned that critical infrastructure shouldn't belong to one company ... and that we should avoid building single points of failure.
For comparison, here's how I see it on Firefox Nightly:
If anyone is using Mac/Safari, and willing to help debug this probable CSS issue, can you visit https://scripter.co and confirm the font issue.. Do you see what someone reported as they see on Safari Technology Preview 11.2 (see attached). The site looks fine on Firefox and Chrome.

@chuck @gamehawk @brennen @craigmaloney I may be biased because I've done a number of technical reviews for NoStarch, but I really like them. Bill Pollock seems like a good leader, I like the quality of their books and their editorial process, and I think their prices are reasonable.
I also like that their books have character and art design instead of the bland homogeneity of O'Reilly, but this is more frivolous.
Packt Pub is more shovelware, toss everything at a wall and see what sticks.
A new blog post: Check if stdin/stdout are associated with terminal or pipe in #Nim: https://scripter.co/nim-check-if-stdin-stdout-are-associated-with-terminal-or-pipe/.
The release with the black theme and the compact mode has been published.
You might find some bugs or have some suggestions. I opened a thread on github. Do not hesitate to post here. Thanks.
Pretty happy with an overhaul of "taxo buttons" on my site https://scripter.co/.
The new buttons for tags and categories blend better into the site.
- Hovering over those shows the number of posts with the same tags/categories
- Clicking on a button will show posts only with that taxo. But on that page, that particular taxo button is colored in my site's theme color (maroon/reddish).
@ashfurrow Being that this instance has more folks using technology, is it possible to support basic Markdown formatting? Does Mastodon even allow that?
By basic, I mean **bold**, _italics_, [description][link-id] and code blocks indented by 4 spaces (backtick fenced code blocks would be even better).
