Making things mobile friendly II

November 30th, 2016
tech  [html]
When I got a phone and started caring about how things looked on mobile I only fixed some of the pages on my site: home page, blog post template, etc. I have various pages scattered around, however, that I never got around to fixing. Most of why I had been putting this off is that it seemed like a lot of finicky work, like updating the EA forum display was. Except all of these pages are just simple html with no css:

<td> 18462
<tr> 3244
<li> 414
<p> 87
<br> 70
<ul> 61
<i> 51
<head> 31
<html> 31
<th> 31
<hr> 30
<title> 29
<small> 27
<body> 24
<blockquote> 13
<b> 8
<ol> 8
<table> 7
<sup> 6
<strike> 5
<code> 3
<style> 3
<big> 2
<center> 2
<tt> 2
<em> 1
<pre> 1
<script> 1

(Why so many table cells? This list includes my schedule and history which consist of huge tables. Only 5% of the table cells come from the rest of the pages.)

These pages are basically already responsive, and all they needed was:

<meta name="viewport"
      content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
to tell mobile browsers not to try to display them like a desktop site.

Instead of “I’m anxious,” try “I feel threatened”

cw: teaching to learn I have a long history with anxiety, and I’m pretty good at noticing when it’s happening. The problem is that I’m always anxious. Noticing anxiety doesn’t snap me out of anxiety– in fact, it often produces meta-anxiety, anxiety about …

Checkmate on blackmail?

It has been argued that blackmail should be legal if gossip is legal, and even that there are no good consequentialist counterarguments (!). I think this isn’t obvious because the disclosures incentivized by blackmail are systematically worse than gossip.…
