Yo. Pretty - and pretty clear.

That being said:

    So if the pool is very full and your transaction didn't go through after a few hours.

"In Case of FOMO". Last sentence. Has no meaning, even in context.

Besides, "very full" is redundant: you're assigning comparative quality ("very") to an absolute value ("full"). Try "densely filled".

On inline style vs using a stylesheet.

EDIT: also, are we shying off naming Reddit now? Is this our nemesis now?

Here's the thing: a glass is either full or not full. An egg carton is full or not full. A freeway, on the other hand, can be "nearly full", "full," "overfull" or "packed to a standstill" and it never reaches the same "full" state as a glass or an egg carton.

Ethereum transactions more accurately mimic the freeway than the egg carton. It's not like the buffer overruns and the transaction fails out forever; it sits there until it goes.

EDIT: no wait. That's the beer talking. It does fail out. But there's still a "congestion" period where it doesn't fail out and that should be explained, in my opinion.

Maaan. Should not drink a 22oz kirin on an empty stomach.

"So, if it's full, I presume it's at 100% - then, a 'very full' one is at... 110%? How the f--"

Thanks! I forgot to proofread that last part. When I wrote it I though 'oh! explaining nonce might be a useful thing' so I abandoned the sentence.

My not very organized. When I started, I did not have many repeating styles, so creating a class for every part of the page seemed unnecessary. I'll see if I can clean that up. :)

It's not a nemesis, more that it doesn't really matter. I could've also written 'another site' instead.

For some reason, on OS X on chrome the letter spacing is negative on certain words. They end up crowded.

Yeeaah it's not loading the font in the SVG properly. Does the same thing on my phone.

The only reason to use a euphemism is that it does.

I think you'll agree that, without a proper reason, saying "I live in a city in the Netherlands" sounds odd. "Yeah, duh! But now that you've mentioned the city, I'm curious what that city is". See what I mean?
