@TobySocks @PsyChuan Camp Howl, unfortunately, do not ship to the UK at the moment, due to Brexit bureaucracy.

Dull celebrities who won't be seen wearing the same pair of socks in public more than once: T___T

Me wearing exactly the same clothes every day like some sort of cartoon character: :)

I wanna build something that uses Container Queries! And Hygen! And Logical Properties! And variable fonts!

@srol @PsyChuan I think a lotta folks who learned English as a second language tend to like, actually understand or notice things about it that native speakers don't.

My mother learned it as a second language and she whips the rest of us at Scrabble every single time.

Come next year, there will be legal adults who had not been born yet when I first became involved in the furry fandom.

Spooky.

I might give streaming another crack. I did a couple like, a year ago, but internet and tech foibles messed me around enough that stopped trying.

Also talking to an empty room is kinda hard, yo.

Yeah, Don't Look Up is a pretty heavy-handed allegory for climate change and climate change denial.

The sad part is that I don't think a lot of people would notice that if it wasn't heavy-handed. 🙃️

Everyone always goes right to God is a DJ or Insomnia when it comes to best Faithless tracks but I really prefer Mass Destruction or Bring My Family Back myself.

On that note, if any y'all fuzzies been involved in any interesting projects, or can scan/photograph old con books or whatever, that can all be useful information to put on WikiFur :>

Over the festive period I've found myself trawling through Archive.org snapshots and social media feeds trying to drag up as much info about old/obsolete/forgotten furry fandom topics as possible so I can document them somewhere.

WikiFur could use some good quality contributions and TLC as of late; and archival of history is pretty important, especially niche fandom history that probably won't get recorded anywhere else.

accessibility, please boost 

@EmilyIsRad Ahoy, randomer who saw this get boosted and happens to do this kinda thing for a living—at least with regard to websites.

JAWS is the most commonly used screen reader by some margin, but it’s unfortunately not free. NVDA (which is free!) is second, with macOS/iOS VoiceOver and Windows Narrator on roughly level pegging behind.

I wouldn’t worry too much about which one you test with, personally, as the main differences between them are in how they’re used and the specifics of how they parse particular things: VoiceOver might not explicitly state that some text is in bold where the others will, for example. You might see more deviation between them depending on the complexity of the document, as there are a few HTML/ARIA features and attributes with inconsistent support.

And to answer the actual question, I test with VoiceOver on Mac and NVDA on Windows.

This website's cool, but I wish there was a way to find the geeks and gamers in the crowd.

Ok so I was familiar with “the dragon book” - the canonical textbook explaining compilers with a dragon on the cover - but apparently I somehow completely missed the existence of “the dinosaur book” for operating systems??

Peeked at my Steam profile and apparently my most played game is Cities: Skylines, at 1,507 hours.

That's nearly 63 days. Over two months. What the heck, me.

public transport opinion 

Okay self-driving cars seem like a really good idea, but I don't think they're ready to use on the open roads yet. I'd suggest keeping them on a fixed route where no other vehicles can go to minimize risk of collision.
We should probably have fixed places where people can get on and off. The cars come in, open their doors, let people enter and exit, and then continue on their journey.
Speaking of which, we should probably also make them larger to increase efficiency and again, to minimize risk of accidents.
We could even couple several of them together into one combined vehicle.
And since they're only going on a fixed route anyway, it makes more sense to use steel wheels on steel rails instead of rubber on asphalt.
I know it's an outlandish concept, but I'm convinced it might work really well if we ever get to try it out on a large scale

@SwooshyCueb It's pretty wild how when you put someone whose supposedly real techy in front of a terminal they end up making the most stupid of mistakes.

Even I, who only has Linux experience from fiddling with RaspPi, found myself going "WHY ARE YOU DOING THAT!?" a lot.
