Haha I only know about it because we wanted to minimize snake oil tradeable on a previous project. The people selected is a fascinating variety.

You're in luck! There's an ICO for that

Hey internet friends! I'm going to be in London for a few days, arriving the 27th. Let's meet up!

Okay we're good. position: relative; z-index: 0; on the root element makes a new stacking context (isolating from rest of doc), then negative value on the watermark sends it between background + content. Why between, when z-index is lower than background? 🤷‍♀️

I've got 3 layers: bg, some watermark text, and clickable elements. Positioning the watermark absolutely creates a new stacking context at the root and dropping the root (with bg color) down in z-index puts it behind the page: unclickable links.

I've written some code I'm very proud of. Dynamic and complex forms, precisely scheduled async requests, large multi-language site generation. Today I am seriously struggling with getting a div to have the right background color.

For sure. I'm cutting them a little slack because this says all English accounts were wrong before 2016, so who knows. May well have been correct when production started 🤷‍♀️

After going through that album I posted, I'm really impressed with the casting (other than the British accents). Most are pretty visually similar to the real life people.

For what it's worth the end of the second episode is allegedly inaccurate! Or at least incomplete.

Also, this ludicrous effort to do work without killing those doing it. They tried robots first, but the radiation broke all of them.

This is the only known photo from the morning after the accident, believed to be the first captured. The grain is due to the radiation.

I love big infrastructure (and also learning about catastrophic failures) so this was an area of interest of mine going way back. I read through this fascinating album of images with detailed descriptions of the history and context. It's huge!

This Chernobyl doc on HBO is seriously one of the most intense things I've seen. The end of the second episode is haunting--knowing this is all historical is horrifying.

We start complex stuff with a markdown file that gets committed to the repo under plans/. Really nice for a slice-in-time capture of thoughts at the outset of a project, can compare with latest code to get a sense of its evolution.

"Fee only" advisors don't have the same twisted incentive, so they're the next best thing to a fiduciary.

I know it's bananas! I remember during the migration discussion, we were skeptical they could handle 7k members. iirc the largest servers have something like 20k ONLINE, in the 6 figures for members.
