@ndegruchy I don't know what else I expected, but I jumped a little upon hearing the honk sound. πŸ˜†

@geekgonecrazy Have to give credit to someone on the internet from where I saw this design before. πŸ˜„

That is unfortunate - will definitely have to try and figure that one out. I first tried using only one text element for the whole thing, but it didn't work due to the overlapping spans and styling; it was also a nightmare to manage. So, I redid it with stacking the text elements on top of each other, and I can definitely see that being messed up in a bunch of different places...

@alireza I like the minimalistic, to-the-point design of yours too. πŸ˜„

@osphost Hmm. I tried getting it to look okay on my phone, so I'm not sure what happens on yours. Could you DM me what it looks like for you?

~✿* My history with JavaScript *✿~

*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?
