Ow

It turns out that practicing juggling bowling pins, drunk, in the dark, while watching tv, is a good way to break half of your fingernails.

I am intensely aware of this right now.

Children warned name of first pet should contain 8 characters and a digit.

Children warned name of first pet should contain 8 characters and a digit.

Banks are now advising parents to think carefully before naming their child's first pet. For security reasons, the chosen name should have at least eight characters, a capital letter and a digit. It should not be the same as the name of any previous pet, and must never be written down, especially on a collar as that is the first place anyone would look. Ideally, children should consider changing the name of their pet every 12 weeks.

Expectant mothers have also been advised to choose carefully where they give birth. Anywhere that has a place name is best avoided. These are listed on maps, which are freely available on the Internet.

Fucking Youtube.

Apparently Youtube has decided that they would rather I not have videos on the front page of the DNA Lounge web site.

They recently changed it so that if the player is less than 200×200 (which really means 356×200 at 16:9) then when you press play, it just says "player is too small."

At least, it does that sometimes. I assume this means that this fucked up change has been rolled out to some of their servers but not all.

So the only way to make my web site's layout work with this new restriction is to remove the videos entirely.

I'm sure that's exactly the result they were hoping for. Well played, asshats.

Also, can anyone tell me why none of my Youtube iframe video embeds will play at all on iPhone/iPad any more, no matter what size they are? Now they display the "play button with a slash through it" and run the spinner continuously. This used to work, and nothing on my side has changed.

Mr. The Plague, Sir?

What we have here is a coupla nerds drinkin' and watching a documentary about the Hungarian demoscene.

I'm sad to say that it's kinda dull -- too many neckbeard interviews, not enough C64 eye candy.

But this cannot go un-noted -- glVertex3f! Suck it, GLES!
