I'd like to know why so many people have gravitated towards Matrix, but not many towards XMPP. Also, why do Matrix detractors not advocate XMPP?
In particular, I'm concerned with the experience for non-technical users as well.
@sir, I'd appreciate your input, since I know you advocate IRC; is there anything specifically wrong with XMPP?
I'm both impressed and astounded by how much this sold for. https://www.npr.org/2019/05/16/723888420/jeff-koons-rabbit-fetches-91-million-auction-record-for-work-by-living-artist
Just playing with the bun.
Unironically listening to Passenger of Shit. I have a working keyboard again. Still in pain so not much interesting to update. Oh well. I'm trying here.
Yeah, it's an error with my font stack and not Binchotan. Good. Switched that up for now but now apostrophe seems to be a fullwidth character. I guess Maybe I need to dig up the sources for Binchotan at some point and add that character. I don't know when. But I'll try to remember that, since it bothers me so much.
I think I might not have added the glyph for the apostrophe and instead rely on another font in the stack to get it. I don't know. I'm still upset by this.
Experiencing a lot of self-doubt at the moment and it's crushing me. Also realizing that somehow the metrics for a very basic character (apostrophe) somehow got messed up in Binchotan and I'll have to go fix it at some point soon.
"Is Noise Pollution the Next Big Public-Health Crisis?" --(https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/05/13/is-noise-pollution-the-next-big-public-health-crisis )-- As somebody that has been forced to suffer through excessive noise while in pain this article resonates with me.;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
Just made a little utility to convert text to fullwidth while fighting this malfunctioning keyboard here. https://rvklein.me/proj/misc/fullwidth-text-conversion-tool.html
This one changes the spaces to proper fullwidth ideographic spaces. A detail which bothered me in many other web utilities for this specific task.
There's really not much to it.
Wait, does it keep the alpha channel when I upload to Mastodon? I think so.
