Can we get a live feed of some paint drying to accompany this?
Wait, that just might be too much excitement for us here. Never mind.

Here you go. I put down Light Ghost Grey, Neutral Grey, and Gunship Grey last night. In another 24 hours it will be fully cured and I'll apply a clear gloss coat. Oh wait, still have to paint the radome, crap

So, should I just stare at it for 24 hours and pretend to watch it dry then?

The front page has a form that refers to "cgi-bin" which is pretty good indication as to the overall age.

Mr. Grass, I'm going to introduce you to something:

Bootstrap. Learn it. Love it.

Yesterday I downloaded an app that turns a spare smartphone into a security camera. I've spent a good portion of today checking on my front yard. But at least I have something to watch, since they're doing work on the road today.

This year, instead of regular weed killer, my mother used "6 month control nuke everything from orbit killer" and turned their whole yard into a patchwork of large brown spots.  True to form, 4 months later, nothing is growing in those spots.  The weeds are completely gone, along with everything else.

I like how the title in the tab for the window takes a long time to reveal.  That's comedy right there.

BTW, did you notice that the retro0.0 web design *DOES* CSS/HTML validate?

One of nearby neighbors mistakenly did that to his beautiful bermuda grass lawn. The dead/dying took over the entire front yard, and about half the back. He had to buy eleventy1 bales of hay and spread it out to prevent it the mud-scape from being washed away in the rain. Dummy. No telling what might come up next spring.

I laughed, but not to his face.

I had been using an S4 plus the ivideon app to monitor a 3d printer but switched over to a Wyze camera (~$25 on Amazon). It has way better video quality, especially in low light, does time lapses if you add a microSD card, and the  two way audio is pretty decent. Plus it plays nice with Alexa so I can let the government watch what I'm doing, too. Or I can be a lazy farker and check my prints at 3am on my spot.

The main JS file is 51k (with no map). Your may be light but ... well, it looks like something out of the 90's lol. 
You don't even have to use the components, just take a look at the grid system, or styles!

Never gonna happen, especially with the adoption of Node and server-side JS processing. I don't understand what problem people have with it anyway, it's not causing you slowdown. JS rendering is so good now that even on the crappiest machine it is still fast. Popup blockers like uBlock and even the integrated ones can/will keep you protected from the most grave threats - unless you are going to some really scary places on the web.

Can you do continuous playback with the video files or do you have to click each one?

I turned off the automatic recording for motion/sound otherwise it would be an insane stream of short clips on 20 hour prints so I'm not  sure how it treats those clips.I use it to monitor in realtime. I have yet to put an SD card in yet to see how the timelapse works (only had the camera for about a month) or the onboard recording.
I have a couple clips I've manually recorded to my phone and I have to play each clip separately. I haven't seen a setting for making it play the clips continuously.

no, just at my parent's house.  It's all I had to contribute to a grass thread.  They had a very pretty yard.
