Long post about instance blocking
* Looking for instructions for this knot, they all say it's difficult. I don't think that's true. This is the first try; I've had others that took many attempts the first time around.
* The pictures I found of it have the short end hanging down visibly behind the knot. I instead suggest that after you pass it inside the two loops behind the knot at the end, you tuck it back up between those loops, and hide the end under the collar instead.
Developer-driven software distribution is a bad idea, which is why I dislike things like Flatpak.
Having distro maintainers involved in the process and installing your software from a free software distribution like Debian or FreeBSD is a much better distribution of power. The packages can be tuned to suit their environment without the developer having to repackage it for every distro, and the distro maintainers can keep out anti-features like telemetry and advertising.
The middleman may seem annoying to developers, but embrace the model and it'll work for you. Landing packages in your favorite distro isn't actually that hard, and the rest of the distros will follow. If you're an end-user who wants to see some software available for your distro, look into packaging and volunteer - it's easy.
Hey y'all earlier today I posted about Racket-MUD, my MUD engine written in Racket, talking about how it's cool and stuff. Unfortunately, all y'all's boosts killed the server it was on, and that's not the first time that's happened.
So, I moved the repo to Gitlab for now:
This is my favourite genre of web design: simultaneously advocating for a style and demonstrating why you should/shouldn't use it!
Using #Stylish or similar is not an option because:
* No convenient way to apply it to all web sites by default and except a few.
* Can't allow web sites to pick between sans and serif but otherwise use the default font.
As maybe I've said before, this knot is charmingly misnamed to the second degree, as it's not half of a Windsor knot in any reasonable sense (just a bit smaller with a similar look), and also the Duke of Windsor apparently didn't use either, he just popularised big knots by using thick ties.
