    That was actually one of my thoughts last week. If Trump lost, would he actually refuse to leave the house. It certainly wouldn't seem to be beyond his character.

    That was one of the gifts intended to be brought to baby Jesus, but they messed up the spelling and brought myrrh, instead. We've been suffering for that mistake every since.

    Probably the only controversial thing in the whole bibble. To be fair though it's not the first time spell check has got us in a bit of bother. Covfefe be praised.

    I just finished an “on the fly” bootstrap confirmation modal. If y’all have any web experience, I’d appreciate any feedback.

    Depends. If the headless Drupal integration layer is mockable with a Restful stack then yes you're right on the money.
    If not, jeese, there's a whole lot of work to do to if you want lava. You have to break through the Earth's crust for starters, and that's a problem because Earth's crust does not support the latest Github API. Last time I needed lava I had to boot up an OS/2 image with RCS!

    Nah, screw all that. Here's what you do: hire yourself a kanban architect with some good contacts in agile scrum captaincy and thinktank that **** out over a live weekender in the Slack mindspace.

    By the end of the month you'll all be synergising to whale-song and storming the IPO like a boss. Artisan latte for everyone, all the way bro.

    Bootstraps CONFIRMED! Amirite?

    SandpaperTM v7.0, will be available for Early Access on Steam very soon. Pre-order now to ensure disappointment.

    Astonishingly, the glasses are not real!

    Special effects were employed at considerable expense (actually many years ago now) to give the impression of the feline subject in my avatar being the wearer of assistive eyewear.
    The thing about avatars is that they are not a realistic depiction of the actual person posting. The beloved cat in question was not aware of VBF (not even the Chit-Chat section) or the internet in general, because he was a cat.

    Thus it is with considerable trepidation that I must emphasise that I an not a cat in real life. This will no doubt be an earth-shaking revelation to many VBFers. I apologise for my failure over the last twenty or so years to indicate this with sufficient clarity.

    In closing I will also inform those reading that the specific cat in question is now long ago passed. He has ceased to be. Dead. As a doornail. Kaputt. Done in. Et cetera.

    But he was a good boy, yes he was, oos a good boy den? Awww.

    Not only are you not only not a pineapple, you cannot even get your avatar to sit in the middle of the 64x64 pixel frame. Even VisualAd can do that most of the time. Maybe.

    I suppose it could be a hookah.

    As for centering the image...that's just bad art. You want the subject somewhat off center to draw the eye into the image.

    Don't do that. Ancestry.com is pretty well established. If you are part guinea pig, you should sign up for some service that is still in beta.
