I need to deal with the text scaling when viewed in person as the scaling can get kinda gross. I should really just render everything within a <canvas>, but Svelte's DOM control is pretty fun.
One of the most persistently useful tool I've made for dealing with strange displays is a grid generator. Making PNG screenshots is kinda challenging so I ended up using a library to recreate the DOM within a <canvas> object, then capture that as an image. It was fun to play around with Svelte. https://dgtlworkshop.github.io/dgtlGridGenerator/
Thinking the advantage of IRC over Mastodon is that when IRC had a netsplit you got that tide of "** Server X has disconnected ** Server Y has disconnected" messages, but when Mastodon has a netsplit it just looks like nobody is posting. Netsplits on 90s IRC had a kind of a festive air, like watching ocean waves crest. Like oh, whoops, there goes New Brunswick. Oh, now it's back again
