@thomasfuchs 🖖🏻 @thijs They even used IDs with "." in the name. Instead of fixing it, they wrote a JQuery function which bent CSS selectors to work w/ that @thijs I had to work with front-ends where the devs had put IDs on *everything* and then wondered why selectors didn't fire anymore. @thijs That's why they need more JS shit on top of that. @thijs "Developer"-minded front-enders just throw absolute positioning at it and fix the shortcomings with a shit ton of JS interceptions.This is pretty cool: Arabic Words Illustrated to Match Their Literal Meaning don't have "high performers with bad behavior", you have "assholes that effectively game your metrics".

Retweeted by Michael Burgstahler @counternotions Last stats are from April 2013: @getwired Roaches of the world, unite! @getwired #notallcockroaches should require blood tests for corporate or political leaders until we can figure out what's going on.… CEO has no clue about thing that's going on for years in his company. But wants to consult Trump on things.… is how you show empathy and awareness of the horrific consequences of politics based on fear and hate. look forward to informing the US administration about Swedish immigration and integration policies.

@joshuatopolsky ah… I had actively searched for one but hadn't noticed this. @joshuatopolsky Generally, press reports about scientific studies should include a link to the original publication. detailed and illustrated explanation about CSS font metrics, line-height & vertical-align. Excellent!…… more and more German online publications are hosting some ads on their own servers, circumventing ad blockers effectively.
