If you are setting your torrent client to "English (GB)" you are technically not pirating.

You are privateering.

Creepy youtube ad 

What algorithmic clickbait nightmare is this? (also why did my ublock not catch that).

Thanks, creepy ad-laden quiz farm, I already know the answer to that question ;)

agatha is looking for a job: part 2 

I need to find a job in the next few months to help paying rent
I'm currently living in southwest Germany but would prefer a remote programming job

Some things I should mention:
- I no longer have a desktop and currently can't afford one so for now I can't run windows
- I haven't changed my documents and my voice doesn't pass so I would prefer a queer-friendly place
- I'm not 18, but will be in 1 month

My resume is available here:

I'll actually be traveling again soon and I'm looking for new luggage to haul a weeks worth of stuff through trains. In the past I used my large hiking backpack, but carrying around two backpacks (I'll have my small daily backpack for electronics and things with me) is pretty cumbersome.
Does anyone have any recommendations for me? (can be expensive if it means the wheels don't come off after the first trip)

rant about html-purists, swearing 

"But why don't you use the native html5 input elements instead of building everything with js?" Yeah well I fucking would but input="datetime-local" doesn't even let me specify the locale, which makes it absolutely useless in a UI which allows users to pick their own locale different from the system one.

Hey, banks, if your login form goes from the first to second picture when I enable js, I am running away very, very fast.

job hunting (boosts welcome) 

idk if it's allowed here, but i'm currently on the hunt for a flexible part time job (ideally no more than 16 hours/week, and should be at least £10/hour, or around that much, no less than £9/hour) that can be done remotely/from home, within the UK timezone (if applicable).

i'm mainly looking for jobs that are either:
- tech support
- technical writing
- frontend web development
- editorial writing (i.e. writing for articles)

so if anyone can help me out with this, that'd be great

Previous versions of buntpapier did control color and size with stylus (css preprocessor) mixins, but those
a) needed a preprocessor
b) could only set stuff at compile time

Which was problematic for venueless, because venueless has theming defined at runtime, and CSS does not (yet) have things like `from these two foreground colors, pick the one with the best contrast for THIS background`, which is happening in js in the playground, if you change the button color to something bright.

If you ask yourself why I am doing this:
I very much dislike setting presentation properties directly on a component.
The way 99% of component frameworks for vue/react/whatever work is basically
`<button color="primary" size="large" tooltip-placement="left">my button</button>`.
This means you basically need to set properties on every. single. component.
Why do that, when you have the power of the cascade and can just do
`.all-my-buttons-container { --button-color: rebeccapurple; }` ?

For the new version of my UI component framework, I am asking myself "what can you control with CSS custom properties?". Colors? Sure. Button sizes? Why not? On which side of the button the tooltip should appear? Of course!
It's a long way from done and requires some JS stunts, but here's a playground preview:


Feedback welcome!

Hintergrund: Im Engineering Team bekommen wir häufiger so Fragen wie "Is subsystem XY working?", worauf die direkte Antwort von "Monitoring says yes" quasi nie hilfreich ist, und die eigentliche Frage quasi immer "I tried XY and expected Z to happen, but it didn't. Can someone help me?" ist.

Ich brauche mal eure Hilfe:
Aus dem Hackerumfeld kenne ich das Konzept von "Metafragen", die man vermeiden sollte, wenn man schnell Hilfe will (erklärt hier: Im Englischen scheint "meta question" was anderes zu bedeuten.
Wie würdet ihr "Vermeide Metafragen" übersetzen, im Kontext eines englischen Leitfadens für einen englischen Firmenchat?

Ich will unserere nach & bekommen, zu Onlinebekanntschaften. Kommerzversand ist aber echt teuer.

Wie gut stehen denn die Chancen, mehrere Flaschen je 100ml per nach zu bekommen und dort weiter zu chaosposten oder halt deren postal service anzuvertrauen?

Kennt ihr Wesen, die in Zukunft nach Nordamerika reisen & bereit sind, ein bisschen mitzunehmen?

Über Aufwandsentschädigung können wir gerne schnacken! :)
