Been an interesting day. My hackintosh set up crashed and burned this afternoon. I'd been working on a Linux install for months now in virtual machines and on other hardware including an install script for setting up my main machine in Linux. Hadn't done the switch because of time constraints. Aside from getting the nvidia drivers to work it's been mostly okay.
If Mozilla wasn't the only thing standing in the way of the death of the Web after seeing this post I'd tell them to go fuck themselves. After laying off people because of executive and senior management failure they write this PR speak bullshit.

Australia’s fires have pumped out more emissions than 100 nations combined. Climate change is driving climate change.

The fact we can communicate across the world using open source technology is pretty amazing.

Doing this with a modern website building library will run you into the megabytes range.
Are modern website building libraries worth increasing your overhead by tens of thousands of times? Is writing 300 lines of code ten thousand times easier than writing one?
This is how we might end up with right to repair legislation.

"Because websites had to either become apps or self-optimize for mobile, web design declined from its creative, more variegated heights to become flat, highly minimalistic, and multi-platform, and the results are, frankly, fucking boring."
Loved everything about this post. A great homage to the old, user-centric web.
@thomasfuchs I think you hit the nail on the head.
@xuv I chose something else, but I initially went with freenas. I wasn't pleased with it because I didn't have the funds to feed it a gargantuan amount of memory just to run a filesystem. The support forums were of the RTFM kind, so I bought a license to Unraid.
