sazzy Head scratcher CSS problem (and I'm mega rusty!) - if there are two lines of text, it throws the grid out of alignment. If I put a min-height on the description text, sometimes the price sits so far away it looks weird. Is there some kind of conditional _something_ I can do? https://twitter.com/sazzy/status/1406651024736243715/photo/1

jensimmons I misspoke. They didn’t explain *how* img height & width prevent layout shift. I doubt they really know. They explained *that* img height & width prevent layout shift — as if I didn’t fully understand my own tweet, never mind the years of debate that preceded the solution.

jensimmons That said, don’t give this one person a hard time. This is a *cultural* problem. Any and all of us do this. We constantly underestimate & undervalue the contributions of people who aren’t white men — aren’t white or aren’t men. Also, inventing new tech is a massive group effort.

jensimmons And I know it’s dangerous to point this out. It’s really not a good idea. I’ll get crap for it all day today & probably tomorrow, too. How dare I lay claim to the breakthroughs I’ve influenced in web technology (and there are many…hardly anyone knows of them). I am That Bitch.

jensimmons I know the urge is strong. You see a photo of a woman… & that urge. Must. Explain. To. Her. Earlier this week someone well known explained to me how img height & width prevent layout shift. Even though I’m the one who came up with the idea. And got it implemented in browsers. https://twitter.com/Tom_Voltz1/status/1406601388029796359

jensimmons Way fewer buttons this time, but there’s that house! https://twitter.com/wayback_exe/status/1406527314834436098

jensimmons Remember when there was always a house icon on your web browser’s tool bar? (Here it’s red.) It was so you could get ‘home’ with one click! #somanybuttons https://twitter.com/wayback_exe/status/1406557528633262085

jensimmons The hardest part was figuring out to manually install TCP/IP, without any way to get troubleshooting help. You can’t look something up online, if you can’t yet get online. Also, floppy disks were involved. https://twitter.com/azeem/status/1406198285640085505
