Normally, I don't post 100% negative stuff like this, but this did the rounds on Merveilles and I fucking hate software patents.

@cancel i thought the examples were promising (slightly reduced eye strain) but it did blow up on bird out of nowhere. i reckon someone clever will develop a similar thing. i didn’t know about w3w, that sounds silly.
