I told my three month old daughter the sum of what I know of the world after close to 32 years: dogs good, people bad.

If you suggest beg people to “pray” during the current corona crisis or any other real crisis: fuck you. Seriously: go to hell. And try to do something that actually helps. If you’re rich donate some fucking money

🤬😡

Hello. I’m Eivind, I work as a web developer at Sbanken and I live right outside Bergen, Norway.

When I’m not writing C# or React code at work, I’m usually at home hanging out with my girlfriend, daughter or my two dogs. I spend my time trying to stay in shape, taking pictures or coding golang.

My editor of choice in Emacs, browser is Firefox, my shell is fish and I prefer OS X.

I’m also one of those weirdos that enjoy writing in notebooks with fountain pens and pencils

FOSS terminology subtoot(s) 

ugh. people still confused about the terminology.

free-as-in-freedom and open source differ almost not at all in terms of licenses and how they apply to what you can do with the code. *neither* approves read-only, no-derivatives, 'source available' licenses.

@dgold I have deeply complex feels on this topic, as kfogel is a friend- someone I care about as much as I do any member of my family. He's a kind person who I think genuinely believes in doing good and I just don't think understands the issue.

At the same time, I think this terrible of him and is unacceptable for QCO, an organization that I volunteered at and quit over this exact issue.

Everyone knows the web is a leaky mess, but people blame the browsers ("Chrome is a memory hog!") instead of the websites. I guarantee you that the Chrome team has way better memory metrics than the average website author. If you go looking for memory leaks in websites, you will find them in spades (e.g. see plasma-umass.org/BLeak/).

The next frontier in web performance is memory usage and memory leaks.

Another thing I'll say about this project: web developers focus a lot on bundle size as their key performance metric, because it's easy to measure and understand. Recently, more folks are actually looking at CPU performance too (Lighthouse, WebPageTest, etc.).

Almost nobody is looking at memory.

In the course of writing Pinafore, I am apparently going to re-implement every damn thing ever, because my standards are way too high and I have too much free time

I don’t think Trump understand that most of the unrest in American cities these days are not because of their Mayors, but rather because of him

I hate content warnings, most things under one is something I’d like to see and it just adds extra clicks. And almost everything I don’t want to see isn’t under one

Most WordPress sites that are about WordPress are hellish landscapes of popups, sticky headers, SEO desperation, and a cluster of other things ruining the experience, and I’m sure they’re all “available as a plugin”

Like, being able to write CSS inside of a custom element without worrying about styles bleeding in or out is great. Being able to pass CSS variables in through the shadow host is great too.

Developers have said loud and clear with stuff like Vue, Svelte, React CSS-in-JS, etc. that they want scoped styles. Shadow DOM delivers that. It's just too bad that there's all this other baggage that isn't terribly useful, and can be actively harmful.
