re: total nonsense 

Dear wearer. These shoe's license keys have expired. You can purchase a new license key from


1. Can I keep wearing my shoes until I get a new key?

Yes, but please note that some features will be disabled in basic shoe mode: closing laces, steps larger than 30cm, jumping, climbing stairs, climbing ladders, and more. To gain access to these PREMIUM FEATURES you must have an active ShoeCo license key.

2. Can I still take off my shoes?

Yes of course, laces can be unlocked with an invalid activation, but please note that they may not re-lock themselves before activation.

3. What happens if I don't re-activate my license?

Your shoes will keep working in basic shoe mode for up to 12 months (or until the next major update). After that time they will turn into brick mode and no longer function as shoes.

Thank you for your trust and support in ShoeCo.

The EU Commission is planning automatic CSAM scanning of your private communication – or total surveillance in the name of child protection. This would be the worst surveillance apparatus outside of China:

My #webdev skills may be stuck in the past, but I maintain that to make a truly accessible internet—in both the #accessibility sense and also the ease of access sense—pure HTML+CSS websites should be the norm.

IMO Javascript should be for full-featured web apps, not for link hover effects and other normal stuff.

Case in point: my homepage across
1. a "normal" browser (Safari desktop)
2. a text-based browser (Lynx)
3. a hybrid terminal browser (Browsh, a headless Firefox wrapper for minimal data usage)

How many modern websites hold up to such a thing? 🤔

I'm think about how to best build an orthographic camera in real life. (Which would probably require the camera to be at least the size of the scene.)
Anyone here who has cool (or even un-cool) ideas or even experience with this?

Phew. Finally back from a fun but exhausting weekend.

An algorithm is just some person’s will made manifest. So the key question is: “whose will?” Yours? Or some douchebag billionaire’s?
