Wow, that was good. The part where he embraces the little girl's drawing got me *right here*

Most computer systems today (e.g. Windows, OSX, Android, iOS) use a thing called Unicode to represent text. Since computers work in binary, there needs to be a way to take a string of binary and convert it to letters and numbers to display on the screen. Unicode is one way to do that, and any system that uses Unicode knows that 01000001 is the capital letter A.
Since all of these emoji are part of the Unicode standard it means that emoji is essentially text, and it can be typed into anywhere normal text can be typed into, which means we can now put them in lots of funny places.
...Heh, after all that and I'm still using Brave as my main browser. Little things get fixed here and there, let's see what works now:
And I get the feeling that Edvard isn't too impressed with Brave, either:

...Those have been replaced by "Top Sites" tiles. Still not as useful as say, Opera or Vivaldi's bookmark tiles on the new tab page, but at least you can remove them now. The dialog when you remove is sort of clunky. You hit the 'X' on the tile, the tile goes away, then Brave tells you it has been deleted, but you can Undo, Remove All, or X to dismiss the notification. It's a little jarring because it's a departure from the standard "Are you sure you want to delete that" dialog, but eh...
- Can't edit the default page shortcuts. There are 'x's to delete them, but it doesn't do anything. You click it, and a dialog comes up that says "Thumbnail removed" but it's still there. Some discussion on the Brave forum about it, and it's apparently on the list as something that needs to be fixed.-Edvard (February 12, 2018, 12:55 PM)
- No 'History' item in the settings dialogs (that I could find, anyway). I have to enter "about:history" in the address bar.All these have been fixed as far as I can tell. At least I haven't had the "missing CSS" thing happen for awhile now.
- Embedded YouTube videos can't be full-screened. The video enlarges but the window stays the same size. Very curious.
- Sometimes (maybe once or twice a week) it "loses" CSS; I hit the 'back' button and suddenly I'm in 1994 with no font colors.
- Sometimes I can't input text anywhere; the address bar, forum posting, information form filling, nothing. I have to restart the browser.This still happens from time to time, but it may be my Desktop Environment (running Xfce on Debian 'Testing'), because I've noticed it happening with other windows every now and then, but not even half as many times as with Brave. I figured out all it takes is Minimizing and Restoring the window instead of restarting the browser. Maybe it's time to try out a new DE...
Well, after putting it all on one page, I think I'm done. Vivaldi is looking better lately...I still use Vivaldi occasionally, but it's still just as gawd-awful slow to start up as the first time I tried it. Just for giggles, I tried timing all the browsers I have installed. Firefox is the slowest to start at ~16 seconds from click to full window showing. Vivaldi is half that; 8 seconds. Chromium takes ~6 seconds, and Brave is ~2 seconds.
Microsoft Corp. on Monday announced it has reached an agreement to acquire GitHub, the world’s leading software development platform where more than 28 million developers learn, share and collaborate to create the future.
Scurry is the story of a colony of mice in an abandoned house who are struggling to survive a long, strange winter. The humans are all gone and the sun is rarely seen. As food becomes scarce and many mice fall ill, the scavengers are forced to search farther from their home, braving monster infested lands in search of anything that will help the colony survive another day. Being hunted by feral cats and predatory birds is part of life for these mice, but beyond the fences stalks something far more fearsome...
Frank Avruch, the Boston-based performer who starred in the first nationally syndicated "Bozo the Clown," died Tuesday at age 89.
According to Boston's WCVB, where he worked for more than four decades as an on-air personality on a variety of shows, he died after a long battle with heart disease.
You wake up in a hospital room.
You are wearing a nurse uniform and bloody bandages. You have an empty syringe in your hand.
Something is banging at the door. It wants inside.
What do you do?

Same thing with the Casino world, and meeting someone that didn't fit the description they'd been given, but can happen to hack the shields. That's less lazy than bad writing.
