Been using for a month and like it a lot but heard about and thought I’d at least give it a try to compare the two similar tools. Free trial of Shift is so limited as to be pointless, deleted it in under 2 minutes.

Web pet peeve of the day. Phone number form fields that don't auto strip symbols ()-+ when a phone number is copy/pasted in... if I copy/paste in 123-456-7890 or +1 (123) 456-7890 your stupid form field ought to magically convert it to whatever format you want.

This. I throught at one point there should be a “text block” with multiple paragraphs... then I thought through the UX of it interacting with other blocks (in-line images) and decided that was really problematic.

It's a bug or error in Railgun connecting to the DC... don't think "community" is going to help...

Lol... I <3 WP and have general disdain for FB. It's pretty preposterous though to slyly suggest that everything that isn't "Facebook/Instagram" is "WordPress". WP is a significant part of the web, but it's not the majority and the "Open Web" is certainly way more than WP.

Did you know, Brussels-Barcelona is the same distance as Beijing-Shanghai? But the train is ~2x slower and ~5x more expensive in Europe where we've chosen planes over long distance trains. For the climate's sake (and our health) we need an ambitious vision for European rail...

I see this and think, "sweet old apple pencil's now work with old Apple minis"... sad to discover no, this is actually the new mini and it still doesn't have faceid or usb-c :( What was the long wait if not to harmonize the product lines around usb-c and faceid?

Myspace lost all the music its users uploaded between 2003 and 2015 / Boing Boing - “Someday, this will happen to Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, etc. Don't trust the platforms to archive your data.”

I spent a good part of 2 years reporting on ISIS internet and how the group uses social media — in 2019 it's mind-boggling to me how well the coordinated cross-platform effort to remove them from the internet worked and how there hasn't been a similar one for white supremacists.

This is one of the things I think SublimeText does way better, you can set excludes per project and per path in .sublime-project, it’s much more powerful than global.
