Chess diagrams are broken on Wikipedia in Safari, both on Mac and iOS :(

Here's a puzzle from the book I'm working my way through, "Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess". White just moved their Queen to F7. The only way for Black to escape a mate is to move their King away to H8 (trust me on this). Can you find the combination of moves that'd accomplish this?

I'm half-way through this book and it's blowing my mind every couple of pages with the brilliance of the chess.

There's something magical about its aesthetic, too — cheap paper, cheap blurry printing, extremely lo-fi layout/typography, and yes: it's printed with flipped pages, so you read right-hand pages only, reach the end of the book, flip it over, and then read the second half.

Day 70 of : More MapKit fun, adding locations to a map and starting to build UI to add notes for each. Getting more comfortable with going back and forth between UIKit and SwiftUI.

I guess real love is when your partner takes a picture like that of you and you not only don’t mind but also like it quite a lot. ❤️

We’re big fans of 三生三世 in this family, I couldn’t find any good stickers from the show so I got a screengrab from Netflix and made my own, taking advantage of a Stickermule sample offer 🤭
