Progress on the videojs-vr integration. Now with multiple projections, defined with parserfunction on file page and embeddable into other pages. I present 360/equirectangular/spherical, EAC (Equi-angular Cubemap) and 360 stereoscopic.

Updating my laptop from Ubuntu 20.04 to 22.04 broke my dev environment, so I started learning how to use containers with Podman. This stuff works great; I really should have looked into it earlier.

Fun fact, even though I have a background in programming, I don't get Apple's Shortcuts app. I just don't get how this thing thinks and how it passes information around that it is supposed to process in follow-up actions. No shortcut I've tried to create ever worked.

If you've been a little "meh" on XR, that post is for you.

Really glad to see MDN working as a progressive web app saveable to home screen via multiple browsers.

Every year, Igalia runs "The Web Engines Hackfest" inviting members from all parts of the Web Platform Community to discuss and work on interesting things. Good Things™ happen there - this year in June, check it out!
