@_mestevens Nothing natively supported by browsers, but there are some XML-based Music markup langs, maybe u can find a library?@hectorsito20 Why don’t you ask other people to retweet it, like you asked me?@matbeedotcom LOL ok you win :P@matbeedotcom @scrwd @bedbathbeyond Yeah, I understand that, but you gotta admit it is quite ridiculous. :P@scrwd @bedbathbeyond I didn’t buy just 1 egg cup, they shipped everything separately!@hectorsito20 No, sorry. As much as I want to help, I can’t flood my twitter stream by posting the same thing twice.@LeaVerou: Why does a $2 egg cup need such a huge box @BedBathBeyond?! What a waste of space & materials. http://t.co/2LRDmLGGvZ@programmerchick Yes, of course :)

@marcmintel you still can, just need to specify branch. See the issues@ireneista Because it's not very smooth. Unless u click “Explore timeline” first, scrolling doesn't work. Also, no hint. /cc @notepadwebdev@ireneista That said, I do think keyboard nav support would be nice and tweeted that to @notepadwebdev who made it@ireneista It doesn’t, its navigation utility is auxillary. Its primary purpose is showing your position. Primary nav is scrolling.@chris5marsh @notepadwebdev So cool. Tweeted it but no space for via :( Scrolling is a bit weird on my MBA. Keyboard nav would've been niceCSS drawings are usually just fun & learning, but this GORGEOUS page shows an actual use case http://t.co/GlEphxf4hL Notice the transitions!This experiment by @lynnandtonic is SO cool! Drawings with one div and (lots of) CSS http://t.co/SzWrC3uO03 Writeup: https://t.co/fKgZ8jfNA4@mike_hasarms you should tell @Hectorsito20, not me! I’m just the messenger :)@chrisburton As a web dev, it will be one of your favorites. It was mine in my undergrad. As you can relate to it & understand it better.@chrisburton Ah, I see! Most CS curriculums include a mandatory DB Systems course so you’ll have one anyway. If not, you should select it.@jamieroling It’s because the one I deleted was earlier than the one I kept. But good point, descending order would make much more sense.@chrisburton What curriculum? That’s the app for submitting homework. If ur asking about the course, I find it interesting, but I’m weird :PHow a little careless spacing can make a UI super confusing… Beware of false relationships that proximity can imply! http://t.co/i1hAFNT9Ib@hectorsito20 I understand that, but with so many free online tools that help with spelling, communication etc, it seems a bit lazy..@Hectorsito20, a web dev student from Dominican Republic had his laptop stolen and is asking for your help, even $1: http://t.co/6OujRBk0Ur@hectorsito20 You know what, nevermind. I offered to help, but it’s taking too long just to communicate and I don’t have this kind of time.@hectorsito20 wtf, nobody told you to say a false story!@hectorsito20 FFS, that’s why I offered to retweet it! But you need to write a good, convincing tweet first.@hectorsito20 I mean, carefully write a tweet that you think will appeal to people and I can retweet it. That will probably help more.@hectorsito20 I just gave $10, but it would probably be more efficient if you gave me a link to a tweet I could RT about this. Good luck!

I have so many resources from @LeaVerou in my book that I'm *this* close to add her name in the index directly.
Retweeted by Lea Verou@grumpywizards Depends on your jeans. It does fit in my back pocket, but the top peeks out, which might be dangerous.@adon1sk I’m in Cambridge, MA, so it must’ve been a doppelganger! Wish you had taken a photo!@jennschiffer How did you cause trouble Jenn? If anything, you’re the peacemaker. @rwaldron is the rude fuck here.@rwaldron @jennschiffer I don’t know you, and have no obligation to know you and whatever ur context is. When I see BS though, I will reply.@rwaldron @githubcommunity u have the freedom not to reply, & I have the freedom to ask whatever the hell I want. That’s how it works dude.@jennschiffer also saying “this is offensive” implies it’s generally offensive, not that @rwaldron was offended.@jennschiffer @rwaldron so asking for “a little help?” is just pointing out what offends him? Not trying to take it down?@jennschiffer @rwaldron If we started a crusade against whatever is offensive to at least one person, there’d be nothing left.@rwaldron @GitHubCommunity @jennschiffer …that said, it’s pretty terrible API design, as it indicates absolutely nothing about its purpose.@rwaldron @GitHubCommunity @jennschiffer Since when are genitalia offensive? To who? Does it only apply to male genitalia? Other body parts?@m_gol but you don't need the opposite corner, mainly just keyboard access, non?

@grumpywizards I think there are more cases when you need a large screen than cases when you need a small phone.@m_gol Do you think that won't be possible? A friend from the @medialab 3D-printed an iPhone 6+ and it didn't seem that huge when I held it.@kamilwaheed No, sorry. @dabblet’s license is noncommercial. It’s clearly mentioned in the help section.@chrisburton You hipster you ;)Huh, just realized I passed 50K followers, probably 1-2 days ago. No fireworks went off, nothing happened. Life is still exactly the same ;)A few minutes ago, I joined the herd of sheeple who ordered an iPhone 6+ despite already having a 5S. I feel a mix of shame and excitement.

Retweeted by Lea Verou@tanya @GitHubHelp can't afford to use server as proxy for everything. Wouldn't be able to handle the load.@tanya @GitHubHelp a rate limit of 60 for unauthenticated is effin ridiculous! Thanks for noticing.@tanya @GitHubHelp oh I just noticed your sentence. But the requests are client-side, so that would exposing the secret API key. Dumb thing!@tanya this is what it's already doing, at least in theory! @GitHubHelpAt the gate, waiting for the first leg of my flights to Boston for MIT. Sadness about those I’ll miss is currently masking all excitement :(

Proving really difficult to order duvets or towels in a color resembling #f06. Pink berry, fuchsia, magenta, everybody calls it sth else!Why do people apologize for emailing “out of the blue”? Isn’t that the whole point of email?@LeaVerou When I left school my maths teacher told us all "Save money on everything you can, except mince and toilet paper"
Retweeted by Lea VerouI wonder who’s more weird: Me buying toilet paper on Amazon, ranked by rating, or the people who actually wrote these ratings…So cute. @adamcatlace loves my deer hide rug! http://t.co/BVWBG1PShw
