Dunno why you're using a dinosaur of a Mac though. :O
I tried all sorts of things, but it just doesn't want to cooperate.

And I basically got this Mac for free so I'm using it purely for muks and giggles. If I really wanted to, I could upgrade it to an older version of OSX though, although I'd lose compatibility with older applications unless I set up a second hard drive to accompany this one so I don't lose the 9.2.2 install.

Older Macs aren't like PCs. You can have Mac OS 9 and OS X running on the same hard disk partition.

I do remember something on "blessed" system folders, although I'd need a larger hard drive and a bit more RAM to run osx decently.

Soooo, I just noticed that Chrome in Windows 8 now has some emoji support. 🍕🍗🍘🍔🍖🍙🍟🎎🎓

And expressions are still unsupported. Weird.

All of those are boxes to me, because I'm using Chromium on Linux. :(

I'm using Chrome on Windows and I only see boxes myself :/ I wonder if Chrome needs an update.

Edit: Yeah, I updated Chrome to Chrome 42 and it seems to be working.

While Unicode sporting corporate-bought emoticons is all great and wonderful, I don't think it's fair. Unicode is supposedly a specification - a standard that everyone follows - and having money shouldn't entitle you to dictate the whims of what others have to support. Be it developers, users, or what.

@Zach I don't see any of those emoticons on Arch Linux. Probably wouldn't even see them on #!. I have a hunch the Linux dev community may feel similar to how I do, eh?

I do like how Font Awesome gets custom TTF work done without buying out the specification, though. Kudos to them.

Hmm, I think I have seen some of the emojis since I saw it on YouTube with my Firefox in about half a year ago, and it's quite good looking. I'm still quite unsure how to type it in PC, though.

I really don't like how many closed-market advances are being made in the world of tech. Corporate interests are having so much say in things simply because they're rich and it's not cohesive to keep new ideas flowing into the system. As Linus Torvalds once said, "software is a lot like sex. It's better if it's free."

And it's all the more better than having no choice but to pay for it. Imagine that!

Yes, everything in the world should be free. Then we'd all live in a perfect world, right? :)

Time to bury the roots of when I was first modded into the ground. A new DCC will be on its way shortly! :D
