Actually, if you’re on Safari it’s now green so look for that. But remember – if you’re on Chrome it’s now grey so look for that *unless* you haven’t updated to v69 which means look for green. Oh – if it’s Chrome on mobile then don’t look for it because it’s not there.
Also, you might be part of the Chrome experiment to deprecate that first thing which means you won’t see it but you can still trust us. Alternatively, if you’re on Safari then that thing is now gone altogether so don’t look for it.
Dear users, please stop looking for the thing you were always told to look for and now look for a different thing instead (but only in one browser). Also, read and understand the other thing that users are terrible at reading and understanding. twitter.com/myetherwallet/status…
I love this story, about a guy who has saved several gigabytes of horrendous banner ads from the early 2000s: motherboard.vice.com/en_us/artic…

I’m sometimes asked if working in Film/TV detracts from my enjoyment of watching shows, b/c I’m aware of what’s going on behind the lens. I tell them that I often appreciate something more knowing the craft that went into it. E.g.: This is some real movie magic shit right here: t.co/7YqYOb9zmV

Thursday snack-time thought: Chunky peanut butter should clearly be cheaper than smooth since they did less work to make it.
When evaluating code remember you are viewing someone’s compromises not their plans. Assume good intent.

But if you’re using an Amazon Aurora managed database its dead simple to spin up read replicas so your site doesn’t fall over because you have too many bloated SQL queries overwhelming your poor database. So that’s cool.
Our site talking to the database: “Gimmie some of that sweet, sweet UTF8 characters…”
Database: “Ok here ya go, I left out those 4-byte characters for ya since you didn’t ask for them”
Website: **Emojis are displayed as ???**
The Rest of the Internet: “This site sucks”
Cooool so long story short not only does your database need the proper character encoding but the thing talking to your database needs to ask for data using the same character set. I guess that is better than just outright failing…
Our database is set to UTF8mb4 which can handle storing 4-byte characters (aka emojis basically). But clients accessing the database can specify what character set they understand.
One of the most boring topics on earth is design systems.
Today I learned databases and character encodings are hard.
