I don't think you really need a business card nowadays, but I had fun making an HTML one anyway. ๐Ÿ˜€

When you really want Twitch emotes on your Riot server such that you turn on URL previews and get a domain just to host the emotes. ๐Ÿ˜…

~โœฟ* My history with JavaScript *โœฟ~

*JavaScript introduced to Netscape*
:blobowo: "This is cool"

*AJAX appears*
:blobuwu: "Yes, useful"

*Early 'port X to JS' experiments*
:blobowo: "Haha it's a fun experiment"

*node.js*
:blobthinkingeyes: ".. um"

*Production software moves to webapps*
:blobnervous: "Wait"

*Electron everywhere*
:blobtired: "Oh no"

Given both options, does anyone choose to use a cloud over a home server?

TIL that m marks horizontal position too in . :vim:

Knew for awhile now that you could get back to the same line using ', but didn't know that you could back to the exact same horizontal position using ` (backtick character). Neat!

Just removed the entire root partition this time, extracted the tar onto the clean partition, actually finished the upgrade this time and bam - finally back on my fresh, up-to-date OS with no reinstalling of the OS or programs. What a ride, but at least I know that my backups work now... ๐Ÿ˜… (2/2)

Just recovered from a bricked install for the first time... Accidentally broke it a few days ago when I made the mistake of only partially upgrading some packages.

Used a tar backup to overwrite my root partition, but that caused a lot of conflicting packages errors. Eventually fixed all of them and tried doing a full system upgrade when a power outage hit and bricked the install again. (1/2)
