Apple has publicly confirmed that it has broken support for persistent web apps (PWAs) on purpose. (Tech Crunch)

Adaptive Curmudgeon - Project Daily Driver: Low Urgency Tractor Awesomeness

I live in East Bumfuk nowhere. The local supply of goods and services is scant. We all need snow removal but it’s not like there’s a “dial 1-800-plowsno or www.clearmydriveway.com” solution. I meet people who cannot believe there are places like this. I assure you it’s true.
