Since cypress has some conceptual problems and playwright's API is rather low level and lacking assertions, I … kinda started writing my own browser e2e testing framework, based on playwright and folio. I'm so sorry, future me.

In an attempt to stop the spread of the Big Ball Of Random Cables I have enforced cable quarantine.

For anyone wondering, this is what "up to 225 MBit/s" of a o² HomeSpot LTE-WLAN-Router looks like.

Do I know anyone playing the new Animal Crossing game here on the fediverse?
If so: Hi there! Want to visit my island? I have rainbow umbrellas!

The new Animal Crossing game is out and it will totally not impact the work I'll get done from home!

I just had a weird nostalgia itch and remembered some weird 90s music creation software I played around with as a kid.
After a lot of digging in remote parts of the internet I actually found it. It's every part as 90s as I remember it! Just look at that beauty of a GUI! It even works with wine!

There might be a slight obsession with a certain video game in this household.

Here's how the difference looks like. I now threw more absolute values at it and it's now much better, but there are still some tiny pixels off that you cannot get to with css, I only hope I can unsee that.

I am a huge fan of inline svg and using css on svg. Sadly, color functions are still missing from css BUT you can do a lot with hsl and var and calc. So I give you: Rotating a single hue value of a svg in the browser.

Using `toFixed(2)` in my `font-size` randomize code results in this, which is also even faster. Lessons learned, don't use too many different font sizes (nobody is going to see the difference between 0.54321em and 0.54322em anyways).

I just encountered the weirdest chrome performance issue. I have a page with a lot of absolutely positioned single char divs, and… the page takes 1s longer to render if I have a long `font-family` declaration. Is chrome evaluating the font stack for every text fragment separately? #4-5 are with `font-family: Roboto`. #2-3 with `font-family: -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, "Segoe UI", Roboto, Oxygen, Ubuntu, Cantarell, "Fira Sans", "Droid Sans", "Helvetica Neue", sans-serif`. I mean. What?

Test print of the stickers with new material are a success, they are easily written upon. I'll be printing more of these then!

Am 31. Oktober gibts in Stuttgart ein cooles Event für Kids: Wearable LEDs basteln mit alten Klamotten!

bought some screws (could not find them in physical stores), got some package material for free! Thanks, Conrad.

The new vue cli ui looks freaking amazing!
It also really lowers the barrier of entry, because you can click a lot of scaffolding together without needing to be a cli/package.json/webpack ninja. Ordered these from redbubble. That's horrible quality, even for digital print, grainy as hell. (Of course, no money refund via their site). A thirty year old inkjet in a wet basement can print better than that. While on fire. Operated by my grandma.
