Eg har eit desperat behov for litt optimisme eller noko positivt, så eg får bidra litt med det sjølv. For ei stund sia byrja eg halde ei personleg heimeside av det gamle slaget ved like. Berre ein bunke ting eg vil dele, der eg deler på ein måte som passar meg og eg gir blanke blaffen i kva andre folk meiner verdsveven er, bør vera eller bør verte. Det er ganske morosamt, pussig nok. Passar vel inn med tankegangen om digital hage og slikt som har vore snakk om her tidlegare.

And I just now realized it also is decided by which exact page element has focus. I hate current web. I hate the current web. I hate the current web.
The person who made scrolling with the keyboard on Mastodon jump between posts instead of scrolling at a fixed speed... Have they ever used a keyboard? Have they ever read a stream of posts?
