I’m looking for blogs (with RSS feeds) that write about music. Any tips?

Writing a user stylesheet to emphasise Refuse Cookies buttons. These buttons are often hidden. Under the fold, like on Youtube, or turned into an almost invisible link, like they do on Marktplaats. I love the fact that you can use some simple CSS to undo some horrible design.

I’ve been using Kagi as my main search engine for a few months now and I love it. They are a paid search engine, which may sound a bit weird, but makes total sense — don't worry, there’s a free version as well. You should try it.

I can’t go to the Nine Pound Hammer show in Groningen on the 8th of July. If you want the ticket, you can buy it for a discounted price.

I have finally written a blog post about the Exclusive Design Principles I’ve been working with, and been teaching about in the last few years.

JavaScript thinks that January is month number 0. I hate computers.

Ik ben net van een glijbaan gegleden. Altijd leuk en inspirerend, een bezoek aan Q42 met studenten.

I just saw the Lemonheads, live in the Melkweg in Amsterdam. That was an embarrassingly bad show. Incredible, hahaha.

Want to get rid of your adobe addiction? (You should.)

I need a new text editor. VSCodium has become very, very slow. I would prefer an editor that’s independent, so not maintained by a tech giant. Any tips? I work on a Mac and I mostly write Markdown, HTML and CSS. And sometimes some other stuff like PHP, Python or JavaScript.

While I really like the new language selection feature in Mastodon 3.5.3, I don’t understand what it does exactly. If I look at the HTML of something I posted in Dutch, for instance, I would expect a lang=nl attribute on the <article>. This would be handy for screen readers. But I can't find this attribute anywhere.
