Web components are spicy iframes.

Frames and iframes are different things.

When you stare into the abyss, sometimes the abyss stares back.

Wait. The abyss is on mute. “Abyss! You’re on mute!”

Oh, I’m on mute too.

That explains all the staring.

Very pleased that BBC iPlayer now has the television adaptation of Dan Simmons’s The Terror.

Or, as @wordridden calls it, Monster And Commander.

Anyone who is unironically into NFTs just sounds like Nathan Barley to me.

“A self-facilitating non-fungible media node, yeah?”

The difference being that Nathan Barley didn’t burn the planet for kicks.

It was an honour for me to be there for such a bittersweet momentous finale!

Remember when we met for the first time? It was in an airport! Dallas, if I recall.

It’s got to the point where I think I miss Dallas airport.
