I rue the day when something bad happens, and I respond with `boo-urns`, and no one gets it.

Despite all my rage, I am still a 5MB page.

Nothing to kick-off your personal rebrand like having to build an impromptu pitch deck in a 72-hour window.

Does anyone actually want a feed in non-chronological order?

If I said it a billion times it will never be enough: The user experience doesn’t end at the edges of the screen. Therefore a UX designer’s job & a UX researcher’s job shouldn’t be limited to what happens on screen, it should take in the entire context & any touchpoints involved.

Some of you never experienced CSS before flexbox and it shows.

This is why I have have ~10 non-essential/stock apps on my phone: good services have decent web/mobile-web experiences that can be used via a normal browsing session, making the app counterpart mostly redundant and little more than a dressed up bookmark.

If you're going to use javascript to load in additional pages/results, update the url and load based on that. If i click on an item, the last thing I want to do when I return to the results is hit Load More an unknown number of times to discover where I was.

Million dollar idea: just keep doing what you’re already doing, but call it a “serverfull” approach. See also: CSS-in-HTML and Multi-Page Applications

Replying to @LappDance
takeaway: I solved an actual work problem through a few minutes of bullshit – embrace it.

My wife love the animated file The Rescuers ; I thought it would be cute to put a quote on our letterboard; I sent a picture to mocking my kerning; we joked about the substitute phrase and all of a sudden... `bore vs boar`. That's what you pay for, not my(our) time.

Giving a go. Cons so far: no layer styles, so assets have to built separately and imported; no type styles; no scale object by %. Pros so far: Built-in prototyping; Repeat grid is great for wireframes; no extra app license costs. We'll see if this can stick.

We’d like a phone that respects us and doesn’t track and profile us please… Samsung: Here’s one you can fold!!! Nokia: Here’s one with six cameras!!! 🤦‍♂️

Why programmers like cooking: You peel the carrot, you chop the carrot, you put the carrot in the stew. You don’t suddenly find out that your peeler is several versions behind and they dropped support for carrots in 4.3

Something that isn't discussed nearly enough: `colour: {value}` should be picked up by autoprefixer so I don't have to manually lint files just to spell words incorrectly.

Being a developer can be super tough sometimes. You're the last stop before work lands in production, which means you often find yourself being the last line of defence, catching product and design issues that should have been raised much earlier—but now *you're* the hold-up.

This trend of video content needs to stop. Search to enable/disable a feature; Results are blogs embedding 4-5 minute videos; Found one-liner text solution in Apple support forum near bottom of results. 1) Video made this way harder. 2) WTF were talking about for 5+ minutes?
