Well, maybe it was just a temporary slowdown yesterday. Unfortunate timing lmao.

Clarification: I don't mean slow content-wise, I mean slow to load and slow to post comments. It's a speed I would have expected from pre-2010 social media.

So, I *like* Friendica, but I may have chosen a poor choice of instance since Nerdica is really sloooow. Anyone have recommendations?

(Also, Friendica doesn't seem to have content warnings, though it does display content warnings on posts from Mastodon. That's disappointing.)

I'm trying out Friendica and I think I like the layout more than Mastodon. I'm at @locrian@nerdica.net. Not sure which account I'm going to be using more often, so just a note.

Bold of Game Freak to set a game in ancient Sinnoh, the one place where we have been explicitly told humans used to marry Pokémon.


liberals will act like having a Bad President is a world-ending disaster because of all the harm he could do, and it is critically important to get a Good President in there instead

and then when there's a Good President, "well he doesn't really have that much power, what do you expect him to do"

What's with streamers on Twitch who have usernames like "username_twitch" or "username_ttv"? I promise you, I did not forget what website I'm on, you don't have to remind me.

REALLY weird thing that actually works out in my favor with this approach: Despite every page on Dreamwidth having the same favicon, communities and personal journals load theirs from journalname.dreamwidth.org/favicon.ico instead of all using the same one. But this is actually fine since I only want one specific Dreamwidth community pinned!

And the tab briefly "un-pins" itself whenever the page changes and the favicon has to re-load. This is hilarious.

Another Firefox feature that I miss in SeaMonkey is pinned tabs. I found this post on Mozilla Zine for how to pin one tab, but it only works for the first one.


...so I added extra pinned tabs by swapping out [first-tab="true"] for [image="favicon url"]. It's so hacky. I love hacky CSS.

Relatedly, here's an easy bookmarklet to help you dodge paywalls:

javascript:location.href='https ://web.archive.org/web/*/'+location.href;

Create a new bookmark on your browser toolbar, and paste that as the url. remove space after https.

One of the things that frustrated me about Neocities was I couldn't see to put a navigation bar on every page of a site without reusing the same code on every page. I used to use server-side includes on my little fansites, but Neocities doesn't support those. The only option seemed to be Javascript, which... why?

And in all the searching and asking around I did for a solution, NO ONE ever told me about <object>? I found out about it today while doing something TOTALLY UNRELATED?

Cursed markup I just saw in an HTML file I was inspecting:
