I am mostly angry because its so wasteful to stop supporting devices and then they become just garbage if you can't easily repurpose devices for you own needs.

5 year old phone? Fuck you, runs code, but you can't run any modern apps, or do anything useful.

3 year old games console? Fuck you. No new games. Online services stop working in 2 years.

TERF is not a slur. It actually is an annoyingly respectful term used to refer blatant transphobes. If you hate trans people, you aren't a feminist.

Fat tires are amazing, it feels soo smooth when the road has bumps (don't be fooled by the picture it's actually not that small, 1m70 from one tire to the other)

My starter kit is #1 on Eleventy Starter Kits. 🎉

It helps the starter is so bare-bones. 🙃

Thought I saw a new-to-me mushroom in the yard, but at closer inspection they turned out to be ghost plants! Monotropa uniflora, freaky little chlorophyll-free parasitic plants. 🆒

Ok, dear fellow #retroists...

I have a wonderful latex template for writing letters.

I'd like to replicate this with troff in the hopes of getting rid of the gigabyte toolchain behind texlive-full (which is excellent in itself, no bashing here).

Any experiences in that?

Please spread this.

Yeahy, now is a good reminder to ask you to check if you are still following the transphobic author who shall not be named? I get it maybe you followed her 10y ago and forgot about it. Now is a good time for some autumn clean up.

It's merged! My first ever collaborative contribution to MDN. It was a very pleasant experience and quite fast as well.

I might do this again. 😀
