ethical corpse disposal

Someone on the Internet is asking the question: "Can we trust Microsoft with Open Source?"

Betteridge Law of Headlines states the answer is "No".

When it comes to Microsoft, I believe a better answer would be: "HECK NO".

Here is the article with all the gory details:

I thought of boosting this: Then I looked at the person's other posts and found this: This has to be the silliest hyperbole I've ever seen about dock placement, to the point where I'm confident it's a bad joke. A really weird joke, too

I saw a delivery truck recently with a sticker on the back saying "Find us online!" with a charming Windows 95 cursor clicking a globe 😌

@Jo yeah I knew someone who used to make fun of me for having a stove kettle and I was like ???

Personally I find them easier to clean because there's no weirdly-shaped heating elements involved...

clever mini-game about pop ups, and the deviousness of websites and apps

Screenshot of Wild Eights The deck height decreases by 1 card for every 3 cards drawn. When the deck is empty, it reshuffles with cards from the "underpile" and those cards vanish and the deck height jumps upward. Eventually I'll make them animate across the table. It's rare for a game to require a reshuffle. I'm eventually going to add an option to change the design on the back of the cards

Polling the server in Wild Eights now happens even if the window is not focused. And I fixed 2 other glitches. Hopefully it's good now ♣️

My fourth favourite ferment (after kimchi, sauerkraut, and sour pickles) is carrots! They stay firm while still absorbing a lot of flavour 😌

re: question about the trump instance 

@danso weird. The timer is tied to the screen being painted so maybe the window isn't focused or something? I should maybe change those timers to setinterval

@danso yeah it doesn't stop someone re-joining even though it also doesn't work. It just overwrites the second player every time you join and the first player becomes nobody

It works for me if I open two windows, but I do have to fix the re-joining problem because that's broken and confusing, heh

@danso you're supposed to wait on the screen that shows the room code until the second player joins

@danso oh I joined but you probably already left by now. It's not possible to re-join games yet unfortunately :p

btw, putting a WSGI app in a subdirectory when the root serves static files is a pain in the butt to figure out...

I put my Wild Eights game online. Share a room code with someone to play this virtual 2-player card game: (Click the ? in the bottom-right corner to see the rules of the game)
