Hermit crabs are amazing. Every so often, a bunch meet up to do a shell swap.

so long since this meme was popular that Tumblr refugees have maybe never seen it. Isn't that weird?
Contributing design to projects as a not established contributor is an invidious task. Most free software projects don't even have the capacity or expertise to evaluate any contribution other than a collective gut feeling. If you run a free software project, try to have a design team. Otherwise you'll miss contributions.

1. got new headphones, which are intermittently faulty
2. need to send them back for an exchange
3. but that requires printing a return form
4. and the black ink required ran out in the middle
5. so swapped in fresh ink and printer refuses to print anything but color now
6. tried everything; hopefully it's just the ink cartridge being old
7. time to buy a new ink cartridge
8. (hopefully not a new printer?)
9. finally print form
10. return headphones
I really wish there was a toot privacy setting where I could chose to only toot to people I follow, not people who follow me. Imho, that's not really intuitive anyway. #meta
So - do I get another smaller locked account that I will probably not use often enough, will I just bite my tounge when it's something I don't feel like posting publicly or semi-publicly?
Last boost: Boys don't have color or interesting outfits compared to girls.
However, outfits for girls and women often lack something cloths for boys and men have: pockets. And reasonable ones, too.
Why can't there be clothes that go against trends trends and make visually interesting, pocket-having clothing for everyone? 🤔
The ongoing legacy of the Great Masculine Renunciation of the 18th Century, or: why do we dress boys in clothes that are grey, joyless and dull?
On the Edge team, we had a *whole team* dedicated to finding compat bugs, reducing them, and reaching out to site owners with fixes. Sometimes we would reach out to a site owner and they'd say, "Sorry, you don't have enough market share for us to bother fixing this bug."
This is where we get -webkit prefixed CSS in the standard, as well as de-facto standards and "works best in Chrome." This is why both Opera and Edge switched to Chromium.
If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on https://webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.
When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.
Mozilla's take on the Edge news.
"By adopting Chromium, Microsoft hands over control of even more of online life to Google... We compete with Google not because it’s a good business opportunity. We compete with Google because the health of the internet and online life depend on competition and choice."
