I remember there was an on line service that isnpected the html of your web site and reported any deviances from the standard

so for example, it reported that you had used a h3 tag within a h4 tag

I'd like to find it again

Indulge your creativity by drawing, painting, sculpting, etc, even if you don’t think you’re good at it.

The anomaly of cheap complexity - Andrew Appel @ Freedom to Tinker: freedom-to-tinker.com/2022/08/

I see lack of standardization amongst hardware protocols as a leading cause of operating system complexity. That said when I look at Linux's code USB definitely seems to help... But that's by no means the sole source, and if like me you care about keeping not that old hardware in active this isn't an issue that's going away any time soon at all.

Kyrsten Sinema held the climate deal hostage until they removed provisions that would have required wealthy investors & companies to pay the taxes that the rest of us pay.

She has to go.

Does anyone have a good fundraising platform to request money for things like bills and rent? #mutualaid

@georgespolitzer

these fundraising messages from Democrats are somehow getting weirder.

chronic illness 

The first thing you're warned about by others when you develop a chronic or long-term illness is that people will forget you.

They don't mean to. We call them social cues for a reason. People often need a hook to get to thinking about someone, an excuse to contact them. We can all kinda keep up with injuries or acute illness because there are known dates and timeframes involved. Here's when to send flowers, here's when to drop off food. When you ask how they're recovering, you expect some sort of motion.

When you're sick on a more long-term basis, I guess you stop reaching out because you run out of things to talk about... "that fresh pillowcase sure was nice," "I liked today's third random movie better than the fourth." It's difficult to make new friends or sweet-talk existing ones into new, easier forms of communication without the energy to connect over a shared interest or ability to sustain a real-time conversation. You want company and friends, but it's hard to get people to engage open-endedly and asynchronously. They'll think you are tired and want to be left alone. But what you'll want is comfort and certainty in your connections.

Anyway I have no real point; it's just sad and it's universal. And a lot of people with chronic illnesses are still on full lockdown and lonely or have newly become ill without the benefit of the social support they'd ordinarily have to adjust to drastic changes in lifestyle or ability.

If you are lucky enough to be healthy and want to do something really awesome for someone who isn't, put someone you care about who you know is ill in your calendar and reach out consistently. Send them regular little notes about what is new with you, send uber eats to their door with breakfast on weekends, suggest something for their reading list or just send them some books if they're able to read comfortably, ask if you can pick up anything for a hobby they can still enjoy while you're out, send them a copy of the photos you take that are fun or pretty that you're not putting up anywhere.

Anything. Just... make it recurring. Each text or DM or "I saw this and thought of you" is a treasure.

Ok, I now have permission to talk about this project in full and in public. I'm working with Alan Kay to build six replicas* of a Xerox PARC Alto display for use in a museum exhibit**. Visitors will see a real Alto and then walk over to one of the replicas to futz with Smalltalk '78***.
Here's a nice writeup of a different project that rejuvenated an actual Alto.

Watching these geniuses trying to wrap their heads around the basics of our society is like watching a toddler get excited when they figure out how the volume on the TV remote works.

Is anyone here interested in acquiring this complete set of Babylon 5 scripts and assorted other books that Cafe Press did in the 2010s? Very good to mint condition. Many are autographed by actors and JMS. #Babylon5 :boost_ok:
