One whole day refactoring my toy Rust project and when it finally compiled... it worked in the first run!

As of this morning more than 20,000 people have died in the US from #COVID19.

Have you ever been to an outdoor concert at The Gorge Amphitheatre near Quincy WA? It seats about 20k people including general admission. I've attached a map and a picture of it *partially* full. georgeamphitheatre.com/

That's how many people are gone forever. Are mourned by their families. Are no longer able to contribute whatever unique gifts they have to the world.

Please stay home and help stop this disease.

Everyone here will know I'm a huge fan of the travel poster artwork from the 1930s & 40s. So, these pastiches encouraging people NOT to travel during the #covid19 pandemic really appeal to me.

The subjects may be Welsh, the sentiment is universal.

See this? How the address bar is made to kind of float subtly when you open a new Firefox tab?

That's the kind of user interface BS I can do without, and it utterly infuriates me that I can't turn this shit off.

I'll get used to it, I suppose, but....why? Why? What possible value can this hold to people other than wow-factor?

If UIs were, you know, CONSISTENT and HOLISTIC, like what Jef Raskin, et. al. advocated aeons ago, we wouldn't need to invest effort for gimmickry like this.
