@jk yes I have both blank tiles here, this is the word "an:"

i remember the first time i ever booted up ubuntu in like 2007 or something. i was like, ah its brown, pretty 70s i guess

@kel IIRC, no.

Looked at ports, appearantly it was prone to random build failures (???)

oops, looks like isn't available on OpenBSD packages anymore...

@ekaitz_zarraga It sounds kinda silly, but I'm missing the days we used to build sites with plain HTML. I mean the modern web would be impossible without what already exists, but even an old Perl script seems like a less complex alternative

Probably easier to maintain for a lot of cases too

Unpopular opinion: Dark themes are a meme. F.lux/redshift/Night Shift/etc are more effective in stopping eye strain and improving sleep cycles, especially at night. A dark theme doesn't solve the underlying issues.

I use a light theme with F.lux cranked up to max nowadays.
