And no dilution is not realistic given that they haven't even raised a Series A yet.

You know what isn't setup the way my normal editor is?

A fucking whiteboard.

I noticed a few hours ago that I wanted to listen to a bunch of acts at Coachella that were on different channels. I didn't really want to have to remember to switch, though, so I hacked this together so that I could select all the acts I want to listen to and it would just switch between them for me when they came on.

https://coachella-streamer.herokuapp.com/?ids=8,12,16,17,19,... is my planned listening for the weekend. Hope someone else finds this useful!

If you visit the Sandlot at Coors Field, you can actually have 'original recipe' Blue Moon. They have a handful of other beers that are only available there, it's a cool spot to check out if you like Blue Moon.

Sometimes people just talk too fast. To you, it's mumbling. To them, they're just conveying a lot of information quickly and you're struggling to keep up. Don't assume malice in their intent.

I won't argue that calling it 'data compression' is nothing more than cute spin, though.

You're getting downvoted because you miss the point. You want the web to cater to you, and big companies with infinite resources will, but smaller companies just won't. The cost to support users such as you is just not worth it, you're too small of a segment. People are going to focus their design + resources on the 99% of users who have decided they want the web to work properly.

I mean, shit, lots of startups completely eschew IE support, and they're a way more significant portion of the market than the neckbeards who disable javascript.

You don't understand. The web is content-based. Like motherfuckingwebsite.com [0] shows, you don't need dynamic content to present your message. If I need to download 1MB of JS to see your freaking tagline, then that's ridiculous.

My BBS: http://artpacks.org/1995/ice9507a.zip/MA-UNH1.ICE

I was never especially good at making art, but this was my favorite of the things I did make: http://artpacks.org/1995/fsn-0895.zip/CT-ASY.ANS

I feel bad for people who were born too late and missed out on the whole BBS scene. Those years were tons of fun, and nothing on the internet has ever been quite like that world.
