Or the Quote block. I can add a quote, sure. And it provides a `cite` element. I can add a link to that.

As soon as I hop over into the “Edit as HTML” view and back, though, to add a `u-bookmark-of` class, everything goes haywire.

I *need* inline class support for hyperlinks, WordPress. I don’t want to be maintaining an ever-growing collection of custom blocks.

Found an issue with my freshly introduced block. Selecting it doesn’t trigger the correct menus. Don’t think this happened in 6.0.

Here’s what’s “FIRE”: me wearing a 20-year-old band shirt to work.

Inline links are fundamentally broken, but frivolities like these, sure.

You know what *is* missing functionality? Inline classes. 😔

> Version 14.2 adds support for kerning controls in the Global Styles panel, making it possible for users to adjust the letter spacing with live preview in the editor. […] “It isn’t technically a ‘bug’ (more ‘missing functionality’) but it does make global styles feel less broken.”

Wow, this is very interesting. Smalltown is a new fork of Mastodon specifically for civic communities looking to host their own social media. It is being developed at Ethan Zuckerman's lab at UMass Amherst.

(It's explicitly inspired by Hometown and very nicely links to my Patreon on their github, too.)

@urusan It depends. Salaried work: probably 40 or so, I’d have to look that up. (Guessing you don’t wanna go into perks, vacation days, pension, etc.) Freelance: definitely 50+

Between 1995 and 2022, people went from not understanding what the Internet is to still not understanding what the Internet is but differently.

birdsite, sorry 

Same folks constantly bitchin’ about taxes preventing hard-working people from ever achieving anything, *obviously*. Like, f—kers, you’re gonna have to pick one or the other

@lightweight I used to (and still do) use youtube-dl for exactly that reason (and also so I’d still be able to watch/collect stuff that might one day disappear).

Are people still seeing ads on Youtube? I use Brave or FF with the uMatrix and uBlockOrigin addons (on Linux), and I haven't seen a video ad in years.

@lightweight Using uBlock Origin on my computer or smartphone: No, never.

On the tiny media player hooked up to my TV: Hell, yes. Like, all the time. (Well, it depends, I guess, on the actual channel.)

I mean, sure, folks like you and I, IT professionals, engineers, and whatnot who were lucky enough to be born this side of the globe, yes, we can simply show up to work, somewhat live below our means, and expect to end up millionaires. That’s not everybody, though.

I mean, you’ll obviously never know if you don’t try, but the whole, “Just get up at 5 AM and work out lots and stick to a meat-only diet and money will come flowing in,” that’s just, uhm, toxic, and *not FIRE at all*.

Dang, I hate these lukewarm takes from so-called “FIRE” folk.

What doesn’t help, I suppose, is that the only Belgian/Flemish financial newspaper copies these observations word for word: “[V]oor de brede graadmeter S&P500 was het de beste tweedaagse rally sinds 2020.” tijd.be/markten-live/live-blog

The fun (or sad) thing is, I keep coming across this shit. (Actually reading these would be a bridge too far.) That’s on me.

I also check my (rather humble, still) portfolio about, no, at least twice a day. And never actually *do anything*—that’s the good part, in fact!—except perhaps *buy*, like once a month or so.

Show thread

Now when they start talking *two-day* results, that means they were most definitely out of inspiration.

“Stock Shorts Fold in Best Two-Day Rally Since 2020: Markets Wrap” bloomberg.com/news/articles/20

I’ve said it before, but these “best” or “worst” days in “3 months,” “a year,” or “this decade” are a dime a dozen. Every day is somehow the best or worst against some arbitrary baseline.

(If you follow stock market news at all, you must’ve totally noticed this. I really wonder why Serious Folks™ keep doing this. Like, *nobody* is falling for this, right? Right?)

Even if this sort of information is technically correct, what good’s it gonna do? I mean, it’s obviously too late to act on anyway!
