The fediverse has gotten to the point where I need a professional account, so #introductions are in order!
#PGP keyid: 0x2846b014 .
I'm pretty sad at how poorly supported css rel=alternate is by browsers given its been standard for so long and its obvious utility
user-switchable stylesheets without JS? heck yeah!
basically only Firefox will do it though and even then it'll reset to the default on a page load so you need to keep changing it back :(
anyway alternate sheets for atkinson hyperlegible are now live on heyquark.com
@lattera vim let's you open remote files directly with scp:// or even rsync://
In #FreeBSD 14-CURRENT, /bin/sh is now the default shell for root, replacing /bin/csh as the previous default.
I think I forgot to announce that I work on Sequoia-PGP now.
i have opinions, based on years of personal experience, about what matters in a computer - what makes it usable
and my whole industry is basically acting like none of those things are meaningful or important at all, and that caring about them is unreasonable
It's really amazing to me how many folks don't realize how bad vertical integration is for markets, even when the people doing the vertical integrating are your favorite team.
One of the key features of Apple's success has been using the most appropriate processor technology for each device in each meta-generation: 68k, PPC, x86, x64, and now ARM.
But that relies on a market where processor makers are interested in building architectures they can sell to Apple as well as other companies. Unless they expect to spend a ton of money on CPU research - not development, but real, speculative, no guarantees research - forever, the move to build but not sell their own chips is putting market dominance ahead of actual sustainable innovation.
And that sucks!
