@tastytentacles @blocknonip mobile web browsers were a mistake, should've stuck with WAP/WML

@bhtooefr @blocknonip IDK I used to be really fond of the Internet but more and more recently I am starting to feel like the whole web architecture (websites that boil down to shoddy software written in lack luster languages) was a mistake.

then again I might just be having a bad day.

@tastytentacles @blocknonip there's a reason why I went on a purge of all JavaScript and CSS on my personal website

@bhtooefr is your personal website just a plain html document? I can get behind that, that's pretty nifty.

@tastytentacles plain HTML front page, WordPress with a heavily modified theme to remove all the JavaScript and CSS bullshit for the blog (although I still need to tune it right for mobile...)

@blocknonip@mastodon.sdf.org The web period in 2018.  I have a 2k screen that constantly gets filled up with shit from those kinds of sites.

Someone make an Indiana Jones GIF avoiding booby traps, but all the traps are mobile ads instead.

@blocknonip … looks so much better when you press the "Readability" button

@blocknonip
My experience with web and mobile development is that most of the people making the decisions don’t actually use their own products.

@blocknonip Take a look at the actual HTML spit out by the Economist's site, if you really want to feel disgusted

@blocknonip
Helps you focus on where you are on the page, rather than having to scan all over to find where you last left off, when you look away.

If you want to learn electronic music production with open-source software and Linux, you can now watch the entire process behind my d'n'b track "Bodacious" on YouTube.
It has won me a MOD Duo, so you know it's good ;)
