True story. My browser blocked the counter.

Can’t really blame it tbh. I had to use CSS for the blinking text as <blink> is deprecated now.

I went to install an SSL cert this morning on my host and found they’d already done it automatically! How far things have come.

Terrible accessibility. No title, no alt tags, no lang attribute, no meta viewport info, poor tap targets. It's like you've not even tried.

Deciding what can and can't be a tag is just sneering elitism.

You could call them "alt attributes" but people would start avoiding you at parties.

I just don't understand why you said alt tag but then lang attribute. :nerd:

And anyway, I don't know what you're talking about. I'm super popular at parties. :attitude:

So I completed the first freeCodeCamp certification at the end of last week. My projects don't look especially nice, but they passed all the tests as laid out by the user stories required, but I'll go back to prettifying them, adding accessibility, tidying up etc at some point. So that's a yay I guess! https://www.freecodecamp.org/certificat ... web-design

Not sure where they get the 300 hours of coursework from, it took me about 35 hours in total.

However, now I've moved onto javascript and it's blowing my tiny mind. :(

JavaScript is evil, that's why. It's not weapons-grade evil like PHP. But it still contains 180% of your RDA of Weird Stuff.

For a start PHP stands for hypertext preprocessor, so that's throwing up red flags before I even begin.
