Is it just me or is WordPress the most "but only if you google it just right will you find the documentation?"

Finally a good use for these bobble heads. Video conferencing!

TIL that US law firms enjoy suing small business online because they missed half a dozen ARIA tags for "accessibility" damages.

I guess this might be relevant to #Telegram users. Or not.

I'm working on a #GURPS framework for #MapTool (rptools.net). So far I have the attributes sheet nearly sorted. It updates and affects the pop-over stat sheets.

Interactive rolls are next.

My printer has been mistaking the Letter setting as A4 for *years* now. Having a contract to send back for a prospective sub-contract lead me to investigate why.

I did not find my answer as to why all the GUI apps were sending the wrong option to CUPS.

What I did find was the `lp` command.

`lp -o media=Letter -d SOME_PRINTER <document>`

My page is formatted properly. Simplicity folks! 👏

Lesson re-learned today: Just because you've been doing a thing for years now doesn't make you less of an idiot.

Assume you're an idiot before posting for help.

Looks like beta preview of ProtonDrive now allows folder uploading and sharing (with passwords + expiry).

Pretty nifty.

I wonder if desktop sync will be a thing.

Hello Mastodon. I hope you all had a good Holiday season. Happy belated :)

In my 20s I asked "what's happenin'?"

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

#GURPS done old school with the exception of my laptop + MapTool. Classic, simple and fun.

All of the players never played before and were provided simple, pre-made sheets for a one-shot adventure. It was a lot of fun!

Did you hear about the chameleon who couldn't change color? They had a reptile dysfunction.
I blame @trevdev for every single groan these jokes elicit! :-)

Just a reminder to my tech friends here who may also be tabletop friends, I have a tabletop channel!

I've found more ways to share there as I'm exploring new tooling.

Find me there! @tratz

Just realized mask enforcement is largely because yelling "cover your fucking mouth" when someone sneezes never seems to be enough.
