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.

You know just a thought but like… maybe building up critical system after critical system on the premise that we would have a nonstop, steady stream of supply was not the best idea in the long run? idk 🤷

game experience report 

This session, We took the "civilian transport mission".
Our medical officer prepared sedatives and handcuffs in case it was one of the traitor transport missions.
Instead, the civilian spawns a giant friendly mudraptor, and says "they get antsy on long trips :)"

I navigated the shit out of that leg and we arrived in record time. My BNav is also noticeably improving

appreciation post for the first screen of the last stage of Celeste Summit, where the length of the screen is perfectly calibrated so a casual player will hit the screen transition right as the music changes

Next time you find yourself thinking, "that sure is a thing", STOP! Instead, tell yourself, "there was an experience". Do you want to make more experiences that are like that one? Maybe you do, maybe you do not. But you do not want it to be a "thing"! When things are things, then there are more things, and pretty soon there end up being too many things and you just can't. So before you make that thing into a thing, simply do not.

STOP REIFYING

Things should not be things. Just look around: it's obvious that things are already things way too much, and it needs to stop. Do you really want more things to be things? Just say "NO".

A reminder that all credit card error messages are fake, and the only way to get a real decline reason is to call the number on your card.

Hetzner website says: "3D Secure authorization failed."
Actual reason: Charge amount is zero
