🚀 HOW TO SPEED UP YOUR SITE AND SAVE THE PLANET
It's a strange week when you find a way to view Reddit in 3D. Fortunately, it ain't 4chan. Other things I found include an awesome interactive comic that made me a little homesick.
If you like free icons but they just seem too static, then I have a great link for you. For the superheroes out there, Wholegrain Digital found a way to score a perfect 100 on the PWA while saving the planet.
In the spatial realism stakes, we have the first meat made in space. And, it is every bit as weird as it sounds.
I wrap it up with a fun game because everyone likes either fun or games.

This is a personal selection because I grew up around 20 clicks north of Cabra, mate. I also have vague memories of the "heroin era" in Sydney and the stereotypes that swirled around Cabra. Despite this, the comic is still entertaining with a couple of good jokes thrown in for good measure.

⚒️ Tools and Resources
Get ya animated icons. Get 200 animated icons for just one link. Bring ya family. Bring ya dog. 🏃♀️
This is a good collection from Icons8 and they will work on nearly any project. The animations are subtle, so you don't need to worry about causing motion sickness.
There's no uploading involved, so you don't need to worry, as much, about privacy. You can change aspect, add filters and so on. Personally, I still think Photopea is the best free photo editing software around, but Doka is ok-a.
If you take a lot of photos of text then you will love this. If you don't, then you can finally start. You can copy the text from a photo or search them all from inside the app.

🎮 Fun & Games
There's only one way to sharpen your coding; in a battle against robots who just want to protect a server. You can build your own robots and then enhance their strategy with some if, then statements. It's an online game that you play for free from the browser.
