New blog post: "How to write about web performance" https://nolanlawson.com/2021/09/12/how-to-write-about-web-performance/
Wherein I talk about why it's important for non-browser engineers to write about browser performance, and how I go about doing it without (mostly) shooting myself in the foot.
Would you be interested in an account? Also would you be able to give me some money for an account?

so here's a fun question for y'all: is there like a third-party youtube app for Android that allows whitelisting channels? As in, hiding all videos/channels unless they're whitelisted
the kid is really into watching playthroughs of various Mario games at the moment but I'd like to limit the potential for her being shown or recommended horrible shite when we're not looking
what if instead of deadlines, projects had kill lines - if it isn't moving by x, drop it on the floor and move on.

“I completely ignored the front end development scene for 6 months. It was fine”
There must be some phrase or idiom that describes the phrenetic circle-running that passes as progress in web development. https://rachsmith.com/i-completely-ignored-the-front-end-development-scene-for-6-months-it-was-fine/
Setting up a kink instance, help required, boosts good, replies even better
So, I'm thinking of setting up a kink instance for various reasons and was wondering what a good hosting service would be for such a thing.
The requirements would be: as much control over the server as possible including being able to choose what mastodon version/fork to use and possibly other config files for the OS or web server and firewall itself, basically need it to be as secure as possible and I am not sure if I completely trust others to do that for me.
Not in the hands of 'big tech', so if possible nothing owned by google, microsoft, amazon etc.
Good enough spec/bandwidth for an instance of a few so that it doesn't run too slow and/or runs out of space/bandwidth.

"well, that's how much i know about how that works"
I don't know who needs to read this, but
"Good writing always has some give in it. It is open to dispute by a reality that the writer does not own and the reader might see differently. Managerial blah, by contrast, runs along a closed circuit that permits no response. Without any sense of voice or audience, it feels tone-locked, written by no one in particular to be read by no one in particular. It is anti-language, a weary run-through of the verbal motions."
Another thing - open source software, especially as crucial as ff, can be clearly classified as public good. It is weird how there is no political will to appreciate and fund it. At least in countries I see. Is it because there is no demand from voters? Maybe there is demand, but not yet articulated?
