you just get a little egg instead when there are some

ul.text-sidebarText > a[href$="project/notifications"] svg:last-child text {
	display: none;
}

pairs nicely with the JS bit of WorseCohost: Making Cohost A Tiny Bit Worse, For Good Reasons™


it's official, both bits of WorseCohost are now official cohost features as of today!

glad to have inspired us to all make cohost A Tiny Bit Worse, For Good Reasons™ together



I originally posted this in /r/minidisc on reddit, but I've been thinking about what to post here and this seemed like a good enough thought.

The old Minidisc.org web site calls the Sony MZ-RH1 "the most perfectly executed minidisc instrument to date" and also (correctly for 2006) notes that it's one of the few machines that can export minidiscs to other media. This became less true over time and with the magic of modern hobbyist developers, the door on the "minidisc ripping" market is busted wide open. This post presents a few alternative options!

This post comes around in part because MZ-RH1s are wildly expensive compared to every other minidisc machine. For no particularly good reason (because they were being made from 2006 to 2011 or 2012) they are the literal most expensive minidisc machine. They are even significantly more expensive, even in not-fully-working condition, than the original minidisc machine. I don't think I remember seeing an MZ-RH1 for under $500, when you can buy an MZ-NE410 for like $50 if you use the offers function on eBay.

seems to only be implemented in WebMiniDisc at this point, so you have to use a Chromium-based browser (boo) but still, wow, that's fantastic



i think the modern web has cursed me. i think they pulled an ol’ pavlovian conditioning trick without knowing it. every time i open a website now i am so anxious to ever scroll down because i’m already half-expecting it to suddenly kick you out halfway down the page with a big popup begging you oh won’t you please log in or sign up to see more tweets… won’t you please give us your email address… won’t you please pay us $5 a month so you can read the rest of the article…

this is just some blurred text… if u can read this no you can’t

i can’t just paste the same character in here over and over because even when it’s blurred you’d probably be able to tell. and lorem ipsum is so boring. i mean, i guess i could post the bee movie script here, but like, whatever,

gotta get some of that gray thingy in here. i don’t remmeber what it’s called. it’s very important in type design. to get, like, your overall text to look like an even gray. you dont want random characters to stick out too much. this paragraph is gonna be a little longer. gotta get some variety in here y’know. bluh bluh bluh text tex text. u ever think about letters? my favorite little type design thing is like, the lowercase y in e.g. Fira Sans. it’s very subtle, but if you look close you’ll see that the left and right lines don’t join together perfectly. instead, the left line sticks out a little bit. i think that’s so nice.

alright I think that’s enough text. i can probably stop writing this now!!!
