Germany Delays Launch of LCARS Ultra
Before I get into the subject of this log entry, I would like to first acknowledge that today is the 47th day of the year. If you know, you know.
In 2022 a German court ruled that a website that uses Google's font library violates the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, which is an EU law. The LCARS template uses Google Fonts. Ruh roh.
All is not lost. To make a European website GDPR compliant, all you need to do is self-host the font rather than have it beamed down from Google's servers. That's what I've been working on. LCARS Ultra will be packaged with the necessary LCARS similar font along with the code for self-hosting baked in.
Next Monday is a holiday here in the United States - Presidents' Day. So I will have a 3 day weekend to wrap up LCARS Ultra and have it ready for download.
By the way, the first episode of Star Trek: Picard season 3 was fantastic! And it's a fun coincidence that the season premiered on the 47th day of the year.
