    Apparently, the off ramp I take for work was closed for road works, so I took another way.

    When I get to work I find out the off ramp was, in fact, not closed.

    People who do the flashing signs on motorways, please update them faster, thank you.

      I like it when the highway gets buggered up out your way… it makes my commute easier by slowing down the flood of cars inbound.

      ty for your service o7

    I don’t know what is going on in Melbourne’s daily thread but from the emojis in the title it looks like they’re wiping a cat’s arse with a toothbrush and then wiping it on their tongues. I don’t know, lemmy’s a bit of a weird place

      I’m keen for the Brisbane daily thread to get some emojis sprinkled through the title like salt bae adding the finishing touches… But not so much interested in the cat bum toothbrush. Hopefully you can have one without the other.

        Perhaps a combo of emojis and various length dashes! Full fancy styles

        It’s yet to be done, but Brisbane could be the first.

        We must rise up against our brisbot overlord and seize the means of production for the daily thread.

        I’m on Windows, and they look marginally better than your example… Are emojis handled by the browser rather than the OS? I’m in Firefox.

          I know Firefox brings its own root security certificates whereas Chrome & Edge use the OS’s in-built certs. Wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest to hear the same is true of emojis.

          edit: looks like Microsoft does have support for it now though. Are you on Win11, by chance? It seems like Microsoft may have finally rolled out support for newer emojis in Win11 that they never bothered to bring to Win10, which I’m still on.

            No sire, ye olde 7100 series CPU on Windows 10 right here:

            I’m guessing the browser does matter, because this is what it looks like in Edge (they forgot the toothbrush! The advice from the 90s was specifically NOT to do that!):
