      So major. This is always worth a good laugh

      Strap on and get ready for beat-down. I think it’s kinda true……. A 5 chuckle rating.

      Thought this was hysterical because I had a feeling there was some truth to it. Nothing like a good old fashioned rant!

      Kinda reminds me on an internet startup my brother is working on…. In all honesty , I only understood 1/2 of this

      I thoroughly enjoyed this even though the only word I understood in it was fuck.

      Funny, and makes some important points, but there's a certain irony in reading this in a reader app.

      How did I miss this?? Probably laughing way more than I should 🤣

      All you have ever seen are shitty skeuomorphic bastardizations of what should be text communicating a fucking message.

        1. Try DuckDuckGoing this. There are plenty of sequels and variations, in the same mother******* vein. About CSS, accessibility, ...

        It doesn't stop. Here's the personal site of author with some existentially challenging Javascript on top: http://barrytsmith.com/

      This should be AOTD because it is the vernacular version of the Johnny Cash photo flipping the bird. Yeah, a disruptor article.


      Still wanna write a punk leaning song called “Yeah, Yeah You’re A Disruptor, Baby”.

      This site doesn't care if you're on an iMac or a motherfucking Tamagotchi.

      A classic! I started doing web development a little over 10 years ago and reading this now makes me slightly nostalgic for the jQuery era.

      Even though I try to keep everything to a minimum I'm sure the author would be appalled at the number of scripts, stylesheets and fonts Readup injects into the page. I have to say though, this site does look much better in reader mode!
