        PHP. A language of convenience. Dangerous, unpredictable, badly, often ironically, named "convenience". #8YearOldCodeMigrationDay

              After playing with typographic baselines for a large chunk of the day, I have concluded that, despite using WebKit, somehow Chrome has much shonkier maths than Safari or Firefox.

                      About to migrate a website I hacked together in 2005 that I have almost no memory of. Oh god this is going to hurt.

                          #TIL \@! in Vim regex (zero-width match if preceding atom does NOT match at current position) and it's made me a very happy boy. Have been meaning to work out how to do that for oh I dunno… a decade?
