I've enjoyed following the OnePlus Nord hype train, but I can't help but feel like their pitch for an affordable, Scandinavian-style phone borrows pretty liberally from Nokia's playbook.

I've been playing those SNK arcade games that showed up on Twitch Prime, and I noticed a few interesting things:

- DotEmu developed the ports/emulation!
- The PC versions of the games seem to be exclusive to Amazon/Twitch. They don't appear in other storefronts.
- An Amazon Prime logo shows up at the start of each game. Are Prime exclusive games a thing now?

Can anyone recommend a good cross-platform eReader app? Ideally open source?

I love the Kindle app's sync and public library integration, but books seem too important to let any one company have too much control.

Brilliant project that tidies up public domain ebooks.

Gutenberg and Internet Archive are wonderful resources, but the texts are poorly formatted for actual use, especially on ereaders.

This is a volunteer driven initiative to bring these texts up to date with modern standards and make them look as good as possible on the page.

Continuing to think about engineering.fb.com/web/faceboo and wondering if "Atomic CSS" really is the most performant way to handle CSS. acss.io/

Pros:

- It does seem that CSS would grow logarithmically with the number of components
- You can code-split it and delete unused rules
- Style calc is fast since everything is just classes (assuming no descendant selectors)

Cons:

- HTML is bloated and hard to debug
- Seems hard to learn the terse syntax
- May be fragile, not very DRY?

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Office Designer

I'm making my music available for free through the end of April in the hopes that it reaches someone who's stuck inside and could use some weird tracker music.

Thanks for listening, and be excellent to each other!

okay so you might have heard that a lot of games on itch.io are generously being put on sale or going completely free to download/claim to help keep people busy during self-isolation. to make things a bit easier for poor folks like me who cant really afford to buy video games, i've made an (almost) complete list of the games that are completely free itch.io/c/759545/self-isolatio

Happy 25th anniversary to Moby's "Everything is Wrong." What a strange, beautiful record. Here's an interview with him from a few years ago. (cw: loss, addiction)

Tired: Open Source is a meritocracy.
Wired: Open Source aims to promote meritocracy.
Inspired: Open Source aims to promote meritocracy by fighting hate and welcoming newcomers.

Over the past few years I've noticed myself stopping to do custom tweaks on my own system, and instead working to fix the underlying issue for everyone.

I finally wrote my thoughts about this down in a more coherent form blogs.gnome.org/tbernard/2020/
