the perils of font metrics, continued

(what this means is that the coordinate systems for horizontal and vertical writing orientation are completely offset from each other)

(going to have to figure out what extra magic CJK fonts pull to get this to work, holy shit)

Sunday is never complete without a purple potion.

Meet a new Mutant Standard emoji bot! @fruitmachine

(I also didn't make it - @shello did!)

Tomorrow is Bring Your arrow left right To Work Day!

woohoo! next big milestone to understanding what the fuck goes on with emoji fonts.

The SVGinOT's metrics problems have been fixed! Turns out even though it's technically supported, most if not all SVGinOT renderers don't know what the fuck to do with the viewbox attribute and react to it in really weird ways, meaning you have to strip it out and give it a weird treatment for it to look right without viewbox.

The test build now views in the area it should and works in Firefox.

Hey, Mutant Standard's Discord (discord.gg/N83NchQ) rules have been improved!

(github.com/dzuk-mutant/weirder)

The reason for this is it's so easy to not feel safe in an online space when the administration hasn't explicitly said what kinds of things and what groups of people are and aren't okay, so I've put this together with the help of @kiilas to lay out just that.

it shouldn't affect anyone who is already here, it's just to make you all feel more safe. ^w^

hey, i made a script to use mutant emoji in any HTML like FontAwesome

put this php in mutant folder and run, it would spew out CSS and HTML; you can put the CSS with emoji folder on web server and use it everywhere like a CDN

Hey, I make a lot of the custom emoji you see on Mastodon instances :cat_smile_ms: :orc: :shrug_g1: :so_gay: :pentacle: :demiguy_flag: :thumbs_up_paw_x50: :transgender_symbol: :broadsword: :arcade_stick: :avocado_toast: :very_angry_ms: :hot_shit: :queer100:

It's part of a big project! You can check out mutant.tech to find out more and follow this account for updates.

@DarckCrystale Thanks for asking, I think I'll be okay on this particular issue, but I have needed a new graphics card for a long time because macOS doesn't like the one I have and it's become really bad with this recent macOS version that I upgraded to last month (that I can't downgrade from because of filesystem incompatibilities) and I haven't asked for help with that even though I probably should have and I probably will shortly xwx
