Having spent years toying with and advocating for them, I'm thrilled that Firefox 63 has support for Web Components! I wrote up an explainer about why they change the way we can build for the web:

Bad puns 

Starting a review of a paper and realized I am Reviewer #2 in the review system.

Well, that really changes everything, doesn’t it?


An excessive, but fun, evening of Overwatch. Hooked up with a team that was clicking, up over 200 SR for the evening on my really old stuck-in-bronze account .... within a few games of escape... (“must not get hopes up, must not get hopes up”)

Mozilla, the nonprofit behind the popular Firefox browser, has a finely tuned privacy appraisal of not just toys but dozens of popular holiday gifts—some of which may not rate much better than coal.

It's amazing how much easier Overwatch is with a smurf on your team ... not even a top-tier smurf, just someone "better than your tier."

As always, happy to be part of this company.

Good morning! If you’re in the US and a citizen get your ass to your polling station today. Yes, you.

I know many people have very strong feelings about the election today, but please remember to use your CW: USPol.


Dear young Americans, you will see a lot of racists die in your lifetime but they aren’t dead yet. Please vote. Thank you for leading us into the future.

On the bright side, with the Group system, if I can just avoid dysfunctional teams, the slow climb should be inevitable. Losing less when I lose than I gain when I win, so even 50/50 will result in a very slow climb.

Played in a another old Overwatch account; came in above previous SR, up almost 100 after a half dozen games, but it's still going to be a long haul (if ever) to get this puppy out of bronze.

Like with the other account, it's amazing how different it is playing back in Bronze. "combining ults" isn't "a thing" ... giving any warning when you're gonna do a move (Rein charge, monkey lead-in, etc) seems unthinkable. Just a free for all.

I just throw my purple orbs, collect a bit of every kill

Hey are you watching Overwatch World Cup? GB upset US spectacularly yesterday, but now they’re facing South Korea in a few minutes.

I’m hoping Canada beats China later (although China upset a pretty strong Finland), perhaps we’ll have a Commonwealth final! 😂
