About Me, Outlook on Technology
I don't care what is technically possible. I care about what actual people using the software, product, or service will or have experienced.
"Actual people" is inclusive and includes you, too. Screen readers, text-only email, TUI web browsers, system administrator experience are all relevant. So are GMail, Outlook, Chrome, and iOS.
Telling me to disregard an entire category of users without good reason is not welcome.
Palestinians are trying to petition in court, but the Israeli courts will do what they always do which is delay delay delay until they say "ok well look the settlers have been there this long we can't just kick them out!"
an idea I've been kicking around for literally years that @heatherhorns 's recent posting reminded me of:
a story where a writers' circle writes a shared universe featuring each other's thinly-veiled self-inserts (friendfiction, really), only to find that
a) what they've written is starting to come true
b) someone is writing as their antagonist, and it's not clear who
I should try developing it. it's also tempting to go meta and form a circle to write it (and to designate one person as the secret antagonist)
god remember when famous tech CEOs just made team management software and web frameworks instead of reinventing public transit and cargo culting bitcoin
it is imperative to recognize that sites like itch, while they're great for many reasons, are also great because they allow adult content. Not "in spite of", BECAUSE. Adult content is good and important on its own merits, actually. Yes, even the stuff that makes you squicky.
i am so very tired of the constant puritanism demanded by platforms like apple and put even more on display during the epic trial today in claiming that http://itch.io is some sort of den of Unspeakable Pornography
@FirstProgenitor @wigglytuffitout this is like when you give someone one of those trick cans of nuts that has the spring snakes inside but they don't open it right away so for the next 2 hours you're just chatting about stuff and trying to pretend you didn't hand them an exploding can of nuts and internally you're just WAITING for them to finally go "ah, it is nuts time" and it ends up being more stressful for you than it is them
you know, hypothetically
Firefox bookmarks also had a "Description" field for a really long time. You could add notes. The UX was never great—only accessible via the bookmarks manager and the bookmarks properties dialog (separate from the popup that appears when clicking the star icon in the address bar). At some point this was broken, too—the Description field is nowhere to be found. Whether that means the update actually dropped existing data from the bookmarks DB or not, I don't know, but it wouldn't surprise me.
