the other day @joel let me know that my blog was fugly in dark mode

The full fugliness of NEVER NOT ONCE looking at my blog in dark mode was even more apparent on pages that used admonitions (see before after below).

As a total beginner, I welcome all help I can get, even if it just a screenshot and a "heads up!"

What a nice website that I certainly have no use for whatsoever and would never ever think, not even for a second, to use...

Gonna go get a tea before I read anymore.

To begin: A little nod to those creators out there helping me procrastinate...

Then, to the apps that let me waste time...
@megalodon and @tut

And, the chuckles... can't forget to laugh a little, even if sometimes the news is a little dark

Here he is in 1977. Quite prescient, I think.

OK Internet, time to surf the information highway... Here is a nice link, possibly a good article to read. Ah, I see... I need to activate JavaScript. And cookies. And DOM storage. Good. Oh, now I need to click on boxes with pictures of tractors. Now I need to slide a puzzle piece. Now I need to hold down on a button. Now I need to deactivate Adblock, accept cookie policy, close that accordion box thing, ignore that login message from Google and... A flippin paywall?! Just let me read it!
