If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.

When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.

white leds don't emit light directly - they excite a phosphor, similar to how a crt works.

and we're slowly using them to replace orange sodium vapor streetlights.

what i mean is, someday the sky over _every_ port will _literally_ be the color of a television tuned to a dead channel.

I'm looking for experienced #gamedev folks to be mentors for #TutorialJam. No hard skill requirements. If you think you might be able to help folks and you're willing to do so and you're not a jerk send me PM or DM or just talk to me however.

60 people have already signed up. I can't help that many people! 😅 #help!

#Trees do more than just sequester #carbon, indeed that's the least benefit they bring in the war on #GlobalWarming / #GlobalHeating / #ClimateEmergency. They modulate weather patterns at small & large scales:
* Cooling surface temperatures
* Increasing cloud cover and albedo
* Reducing cirrus cloud (the kind that warms us more than it cools)
* In sufficient numbers, trees directly pump rainclouds inland, spreading growth and sequestration even into deserts and dustbowls!

Someone put together quite an extensive comparison table of communications protocols: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d

(I don't agree with 100% of data points, but overall I think it's a useful list.)
