Bibliogram settings

It exists!

I spent most of the night doing that, and then I spent about 10 minutes following up the many, many GitHub issues that were waiting on the settings page to exist.

I think my next task is to work on themes, which have been a long time coming, though I'm not quite sure how I'll accomplish it yet. I'd prefer to load only the colours that are needed, rather than loading all the colours and then switching between them using classes. But I don't know if this will be easy to do (probably not!) and I don't know if it will play nicely with the stylesheet cache-control that I set up just the other day.

I also finally remembered to enable a setting as the default for everyone. This setting detects if the current instance is blocked and then refuses to make further requests for 2 hours if it is. This was in testing for a while but it seems there's no bugs now, so I've made it the default for everyone to use.

The video of the day is this clip of Troy (aka TWD98) and James Charles (yes) playing Mario Kart Wii together. It's a segment from a longer video.

The backstory of this is really cute. James Charles used to be an avid Mario Kart Wii player until Nintendo shut down the servers around 2014. Some time after this his makeup career happened, but he still watches Troy who is a popular Mario Kart Wii streamer/video creator, and he's been a fan for Troy for a long time, but Troy didn't know. One time Troy replied to something James posted on Twitter and James was like "omg I'm a fan of your videos I used to be great at mario kart" and Troy was like "omg that's sick we should play it together" and then they met up in real life and played Mario Kart Wii together and I think that's really nice.

Apparently James Charles used to make Mario Kart hacking videos which I think is really funny. I don't remember, but I think this event might have happened as a response to the internet drama that happened when people uncovered that fact. That would make sense.
