I feel like I've reinvented the SX64, and remembering how awesome and how terrible it was at the same time.
I need to go find my glasses.
To conclude my rant:
If you build websites, if you have any influence for how you or your company uses the web: Please, actively try to lower this technical barrier. Introduce a UX testing phase where you simulate a gprs-class connection (easy with web-dev-tools).
Make sure that you share your knowledge not only with those that are already privileged by modern (communications) technology, but also with those that might need it the most.
By continuing to build on this technology, we are driving a wedge between people. This must be stopped.

Need to buy new phone. Android, probably, but I'm not thrilled about that.
Stuff I care about:

This is one reason why you should tag/describe animal photos you share accurately (whether they are cute pets, unusual wildlife from your country or something you saw at the safari park/zoo) - you can't count on the corporate AI to do that correctly 😆 😸 🐶
Also if its an unusual creature, a link to wikipedia or a zoologists website with more info about it is good too..
**Microplastics nu ook in tafelzout gevonden**
"Meer dan 90 procent van het zeezout bevat sporten van microplastics. Zout dat in Azië wordt geproduceerd, bevat de hoogste concentratie, blijkt uit onderzoek van Greenpeace en de Universiteit van Incheon in Zuid-Korea."
My current musical find / short-term obsession:
Marshall Hain, Dancing in the City, 1978
Just a nice little mix of liquid pop sugar with an undertone of dark menace. A bit like Kim Wilde's 'Kids In America' but more of a slow burn.
