that project is basically an extremely advanced version of Fabrice Bellard's JSLinux which was already a crazy achievement at the time (2011 i believe?) bellard.org/jslinux/

Interesting thing to note on Mastodon is that for anything other than public/fed timeline toots (i.e. even for public but unlisted toots), hashtags are completely irrelevant.

Northern England is not one of the parts of the world where people do much/any outdoor skating. I'm in one of the UK's major cities and there is not a single shop for adult skaters that I'm aware of here. There is a tiny aggressive skate scene, and the RCRG Derby team.
