Uhm. I find so creamy. The finish lasts forever, the cream and the spices stay forever in the mouth.

alcohol, #scotch 

My first ever Scotch tasting (outside of home-experimentation).

First on my list was Classic Laddie. I have to say, I usually prefer cask-strength sherry bombs. This whisky isn't exactly that, but I think it goes to my favorites list.

Oh crap, I submited a talk proposal where I said I'll toot with from a app to mastodon to and they accepted it.
Now I have to go and actually prepare that talk. Suits me right for submiting talks around ( >︹<)

(The cringe emoticon is just for funsies, I'm looking forward to doing this talk!)

Did you read "Don't make me think" by Steve Krug? It's an older code but it checks out.

Yes, of COURSE the new L4E website will have a dark mode!

(Thanks for the work you're doing @AUNaseef)

I think it'd be fun for one of all these new TLDs to fail. I mean, something like .ink, or .museum or .bayern or something. E.g. their root zone get hacked and a lot of people get their shit hijacked and damaged, or their datacenters burn like that french provider recently.

I think two things could come out of it: 1. we'd realize that we need to pick trustworthy registrars, and not all kinds of crap co's like we have now and 2. we'd realise it's fine to not have a part of the internet, life goes on.

Ive just read The morning and the evening and the night by Octavia Butler, am impressed. Totally glued to the screen and didn't stop till i was finished. Heartily recommended.

#Cookies
Play the "cookies speed run" game to show how good you've become at not allowing cookies, but there's traps!
I wish this was just a satyr but this is actually pretty close to the real shady experience of cookies banners on today's websites :/

Why did Caesar disable updates on Visual Studio Code?

He was told to "beware the IDEs of March"

"The Mobile Performance Inequality Gap, 2021" by @slightlyoff infrequently.org/2021/03/the-p

Another great rundown of devices, browsers, and how to set web performance targets in 2021. It's interesting and depressing to see how little Android performance has budged in the past few years.

A small side-project I started is importing the IBM CGA card schematics into . My idea is to publish them, and hopefully produce a clone. I know someone on the internet already attempted this, but to my knowledge they never published their work, nor answered my emails.

Why doing this while we already have great homebrew SVGA cards? Because composite CGA gaming is a thing, and it doesn't look terrible. Beside, a 4.77Mhz 8088 has an hard time making full use of VGA.
