Oh, just discovered the next reboot of the reboot of the DC universe is set to include the authority, so there's something else for them to ruin.

Is there anything worth watching on HBO/max? Can't recall the last time I opened the app.

This is an early access game, but has a chance to be a really special one on #OpenBSD - a first-person card-based dungeon crawler called Deepest Chamber: Resurrection. From Balcony Softworks, the makers of Balrum.

I'd like to give a shoutout to the devs - I had mentioned to them on Xitter that if they added a `-nosteam` flag, we might be able to run it on OpenBSD.

A few weeks later, they got back to me - on Youtube because I have since deleted my Xitter account! They have added the flag and now I can run version 0.934 on OpenBSD!! #PlayOnBSD

The three acceptable keywords to introduce a function (should your language need one) are "fn", "func", and "function". You may not use "fun". Unacceptable.

Has anybody assessed mastodon exposure to webp vuln? It transcodes the image using the bad library, no?

(Honk uses a go webp decoder. I'm guessing it might crash, but no worse if it gets the naughty image.)

Is Huffman coding the most dangerous topic taught in introductory computer science classes? So many flawed implementations, so many exploits.

Oh, hells yeah, who's the top honk?

(Then it redirects to a page that's 404, of course.)

lolol, mastodon ui eats http: and https: from links in posts, so if you're trying to explain the difference, they look identical.

Preannouncing an emergency honk patch, but not specifying a time for the actual announcement to keep everybody on their toes.

Okay, giving up on this as a bust. I can't even type "<b>eat it" and have it appear. It doesn't escape the tag. It doesn't pass the tag. It simply eats the tag and outputs "eat it". I don't want to have to remember to use code blocks every time I talk about an <html> tag.

I think part of the problem is I fundamentally misunderstood markdown syntax from the start, and so now I don't like the output of anything that does it correctly.

Consider a table:

| header one | header two |
| --- | --- |
| value 1 | value 2 |
some more text down here

I think the text below should be outside the table. But apparently there should be another table row with a single column of that text. What?

One of the principles of markdown was supposedly that it simply marks up plain text as a human would interpret it. I would never interpret that text to be part of the table.

I've given in to crowd wisdom and am once again evaluating legit markdown converters with grown up parsers.
