"The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at and repair."

When your image can be 100% represented in text, you put that representation in the alt text... Voilà, terminal clients can "render" your image!

This is my favorite commit for today

Also I can't believe the alt text being two non-alpha characters is actually acceptable for Lighthouse. I mean why shouldn't it? It describes the image perfectly well :)

Crazy how much power we have on a sunny day. It is even easier to keep everything topped up when we're using our low-power workstations.
Devine is using the Pinebook, and I'm using Obi, a 2013 Macbook Air (donation from our friend Lloyd). Draws half the power of Vincent.

the english words for “north”, “south” “east” “west” actually come from the ancient nordic names for dwarves who were thought to live in those directions, and hold the sky up like pallbearers of the heavens.

Have spent the past two months designing and testing a small at-home printmaking setup. The most time-intensive part was studying the ingredients and ecological impacts of paints and inks. Most manufacturers provide little information. Also, I haven't read this many MSDSes since undergrad. #theWorkshop

I'm happy to introduce our new ultra-low tech CMS for smol, accessible websites. The goal was to make something that could be self-hosted, but friendly enough for people who don't SFTP or use a terminal. 3 PHP files, Apache, and Gemtext. Should work on any dumb old Apache host; a technical person could manage many of these for friends and family with zero maintenance. Happy to answer any questions or take bug reports.

The Power Mac G4 series had a tool-free hinged case that dropped the entire mainboard horizontal when opened. The patents on this design have to be expired by now. All desktops should be using this feature.
