@cdevroe I dislike it also. Thankfully, I am certain it will follow the trail blazed by marquees, aqua buttons, scrollbar styling, tiny font sizes etc… straight into eventual oblivion
@RossA yes, I think I’m afraid of the traffic and having an accident. Maybe I’m also afraid I’ve gotten too fat and unfit in the past six months of bed rest! 🤣
@Cheri it strikes me that the kind of director to direct a Marvel movie would be the kind to kowtow to studio executives wanting more ass. “But 15 year old boys are still our prime demographic!”
@jayeless @maique @pimoore Roundabouts are brilliant, when they're used correctly. Most instructors teach them incorrectly: you don't give way to the right, you give way to everybody already in the roundabout. Many roundabouts have a main thoroughfare and smaller ones adjoining, so as people speed through them, and everybody waits for the car to the right, they can easily get clogged up with traffic and eventually result in traffic lights replacing them. If everybody slowed down on the approach, gave way to whoever enters first, and indicated when leaving the roundabout, they flow very easily. In WA the police enforce the indicating when leaving the roundabout (well, they did so 15 years ago when I lived there) and everybody did so, making it flow very efficiently.
@kitt Thank you!
@pimoore Thank you!
@manton what I love about micro.blog is that I can write my serious posts in markdown elsewhere (for me: Ulysses, but it doesn't matter where) and very simply and easily push through to my blog. If one day I wanted to print a book I'd just go from the source. My point is that in a good content strategy the blog would be a channel, not the primary source. If you have a docx export would users expect an import? You'd be biting into one massive painful pie.
@joshua ding ding ding ding dingadingading!!
@joshua but the best part of a dad joke is in the delivery, and they’ve fucked that up completely.
@joshua start a petition!
@maique Good. Fewer humans = happier Earth.
@RossA when camping, rain is the fun!
@aa do you have any pieces to show us?
@joshua because they don’t value their own time. I’ve had so many conversations with small business owners where it’s very obvious: they cannot put a dollar figure on their time. So a holiday/day off is an unknown unquantifiable risk. That’s scary for a small business.
@jean I’d have to admit to being a bit of an addict.
@joshua Could be worse. You could see it suddenly board another plane and …
@joshua makes me feel safer about Judgment Day when Skynet becomes self-aware and the Terminators come for me. They’re going to be pretty easy to defeat with an Aussie accent.
@joshua have used Fastmail for years now and I mostly like it, but their Dark Mode just ruins emails and as an email designer it irks me no end. I’ve stuck with them hoping they’ll adopt standards and improve.
@Applegeek wait 13 years and you’re desperately trying every trick in the parenting book just to get them out of bed early.
@Cheri awesome I’ll check them out! Thanks!
@Cheri Have you released any yet?
