Attending a large tech conference has seemingly renewed my interest in publishing the project charter I put together a few years ago to organize and build an open-source CMS focused on higher ed/government/enterprise-level publishing.

Men would rather invent a whole JS framework than learn CSS.

I posted this message in the Slack, and someone shared this helpful tutorial on how to make alt text images look nicer.

FYI: When you put "line-height: 0" on <img>s, and the image doesn't load, the line height applies to the alt text. And then the alt text is all squished and illegible. Otherwise, line height doesn't affect the image itself. So don't put "line-height: 0" on images. :)

Love to see good people get the attention they deserve.

BBEdit is my go-to text editor for *everything*.

I've been so busy lately that I've started "ignoring" my emails on the weekend. It gives my brain a break and allows me to focus more on doing the actual work and resting my introverted mind.

However, emotional energy transference is a thing so I still have to deal with all of those emails and unread Slack messages on Monday morning.

Monday morning Rachel thinks this plan might need some tweaking.
