So, don't tell anybody, but we're going to announce Palm Pilot emulation in the browser at Internet Archive in the next week or so. I've still got to get descriptions in for the hundreds of apps that are uploaded, and add a few more classics. But if you want to help with that, or just let me know how it's going, ping me here.

But don't tell anybody! It's a secret!

Cool to see Microsoft expanding on the adaptive Xbox controller to make regular computer accessories. And doing it right by allowing extensive customization and tailoring to specific disabilities.

Homework for my new job: Bulma CSS, Vue3, and Golang.
My boss:”you’re not required to start learning these before your start date”
Me: “appreciate the sentiment but you realize I did quit my job for 3 months to study software to get to this point and I’m not stopping anytime soon”

RT @DaveScheidt
I understand everyone is having fun making fun of Twitter right now and I don't want to tone police but PLEASE remember to also make fun of the crypto crash happening right now as well.

@cillic @tinker @iarna I still can't believe how much better the instant messaging / real time chat space was in 2005-2010 than it is now, and how excited I was when Google Chat went full XMPP. I was sold, hook, line, and sinker.

Now I have to keep all of Discord, Slack, and Signal open at all times, not all of which can be present on all of my devices, and if you're not on one of those centralized services I guess I don't chat with you.

What a depressing regression.

Video game idea: You go back in time to the Garden of Eden and kill Adam. It's a first person shooter.

I was surprised to get this lovely postcard yesterday from a friend who had been visiting Japan.

❌ we should have daylight when we go to work in the morning

❌ we should have daylight when we come home from work at night

☑️ we shouldn’t have to work so many hours that we have to ration The Sun

This thing is appealing but I have a slack community and zulip community I spend a lot of time in and I'd love for some way to aggregate all three?
