OMG it's crazy that politics like that is a major concern in a *dictionary*.

They could just pay you in Apple Store credit and cut out the banks!

This is the season of gifting, so we've decided to surpise you with a huge winter sale as a thank you for such a great year with ForkLift 3. All licenses are 50% off for a limited time.

It looks like you’ll pull it off, too —eventually. I’m hoping some day you will have a line of products at different price points so that you can get your awesome design into the hands of more people who can benefit from it.

This is a fascinating experiment. Props to Cards Against Humanity for doing it. Also, I’m noticing a major theme here: Medical bills. The US healthcare system is an atrocity.

The wood looks awesome but holy shit does it ever seem problematic. In hindsight, do you wish you had just made a plastic enclosure or something for your first product and tried wood later for a “premium” version?

He did. I convinced one of my coworkers to read it and gave a lecture based on it once :)

BTW, Sarah also wrote an excellent book for those interested in taking SVG to the next level and doing animation.

I own this book and it’s a great introduction to SVG – which you probably should be using more than you do, unless you’re !

If it is... then they found us. And we're probably fucked.

We are not in a post-truth, post-fact world. To suggest this implies there was some truth-filled paradise from which we’ve strayed. We’ve always engaged in motivated reasoning, and outside of science, journalism, etc., our motivation has rarely been accuracy.

When will you start selling miniature tunnel boring machines that kids can operate?

Canadian here. Most of us don’t understand how or why the GOP still exists in 2017 but we have plenty of people with extreme right-wing and/or deeply ingrained unscientific beliefs too.

If you are found in the Roadster going to Mars, they had better get you out before it launches. I know you want to go to space, but this is not the way!

BTW, I love it when you geek out on codecs on ATP 😃

AAC has been supported everywhere for audio playback for ages. (Thank iTunes Music Store for that.) I have been exclusively using it for about 15 years for music encoding. Don’t even get me started on the horrid mess that is ID3 1.1/2 tags.

LAME is better at VBR at high bitrates, but as you’ve mentioned many times, that is problematic for podcasts. MP3 is just… old and predates VBR being the defacto way to encode. VBR is highly advantageous for music—I’m guessing the developers didn’t bother to optimize CBR much.

Question: Do you pretty much only ever use your Keyboardio and not other keyboards? I’m getting one for work and was wondering how terrible it is to switch between that and a regular keyboard.
