@utopiah @mavoweb Thanks though it needs a TON of work... @ggerena No need to apply! Just pick a project you like and send a pull request! @annertey_ Thank you! @vhgalvao There should be a foundation that supports people financially for doing FOSS work. @vhgalvao OMG you are a maintainer's wet dream!Want to contribute to open source but feel insecure about your coding skills? Contribute to documentation! Nobody does and we need it BADLY. @codehitchhiker @sarah_edo @btreif I’m generally pro-freedom and against protecting authors from themselves. Though… @codehitchhiker @sarah_edo @btreif Re-creating toolbars with divs or using proprietary CSS is even more detrimental. @sarah_edo @btreif No, not really. Just vague ideas that we need to address it at some point. @dror3go You can listen for click events on body and check if is within a dialog. pointer-e…

Retweeted by Lea Verou @lydiajones_18 Holy shit. This is wrong on so many levels. 😡So I professionally asked for help and it ended this way. This tech scene needs to wake up. #startup

@dror3go But you could re-use an existing suitable element or add a new one with meaning; <main> is an excellent candidate. @dror3go Sadly no because to blur you need to enclose and you cannot de-blur a descendant. @h4wkh4wk @gandi_net I actually like the new design much more. But migrations are hard. @RachelScodes @JasonBurnsdub @KingOfMars @boguspress @MrEmilyHeller What makes you think I didn't?

@_rodrigoibarra Haha no, we have given 10s! You need to look more thoroughly!

@wesbos @sarah_edo @vlh Ah, thx! Btw they removed it now but still seem to think their data was correct, lol @wesbos @sarah_edo @vlh I’ve seen that but the numbers it lists are different than those mentioned, not 137 @wesbos @sarah_edo @vlh Any URL? I googled and still can't find the tool for Moz (I know about Klout) @sarah_edo @wesbos No I mean where did you find the numbers for me and @vlh etc @jennschiffer I have a higher retweet and Klout rate than any of these people, I'd question their methodologies as…
Retweeted by Lea Verou @wesbos @sarah_edo @jennschiffer @vlh Where do you see these numbers? @BofA_Help Not a problem with me, it's a problem with your software. Obviously it flags non-US logins as suspicious… @BankofAmerica Maybe your login system can cross-reference travel notices before assuming a non-US login is a fraud? Too much to ask?

Retweeted by Lea VerouFascinating read on the history of Web development: “The Languages Which Almost Became CSS” @csuwildcat Oh yeah, I believe CodeFlask has issues there. Try it on normal Prism and if that works, ask CodeFlask author. @csuwildcat Have you tried white-space: pre-wrap? @philipyoungg @RIP212 @PastorSeaLion @randileeharper Anyhow, most reactions are not about that part, but about his… @philipyoungg @RIP212 @PastorSeaLion @randileeharper I had the same view in the past.

While you wonder if Google will fire the misogynist, it's also a good time to think about how you'll make sure you don't hire him

Retweeted by Lea VerouThis whole thread. @bogas04 Yes thanks, though I think it only notifies when Chrome implements, not other browsers. Right, @ebidel?
@ruGreLI Damn, I should've listened to your warning! @fdorantesm @Uriel_Hedz That's not true for pretty much every other object or primitive. Maybe pop up a console and… thinks my recent humidifier purchase was merely the inaugural move in a newfound hobby of humidifier collecting.

I've covered Symbol.toPrimitive in my example. @hossein_lil Or maybe a better explanation is that not all women hate cursing because not all women are the same? @thorstenfrommen 😂 Man, you need to combine those into 1 screenshot. The joke will be lost with two.Consistency? What consistency? Where we’re going we don’t need any stinking consistency! #wtfjs #fucklogic
