"Oh dear, you have a lot of... things."
The cyborg looked up. "The word is prosthetics."
"So much machinery. Don't you worry you will stop being human?"
"Oh, there is a line I will not cross."
"What line is that?"
"I will not question another person's humanity."

When I say that DSOTM is best experienced in a home theatre, I'm not saying it's unlistenable on a smartphone speaker.

I'm saying you're missing out. Which is true. Pink Floyd designed that album with surround sound in mind.

Apparently this feature was funded by @NGIZero and @EU_Commission which is nice. Props to them 👍

Makers and engineering types, I'm begging you-

1. Don't start a design cycle with *what you perceive* is the problem to be solved for disabled people. Work on what they tell you.

2. Don't build it without the constant involvement of multiple target users.

@kayden it’s where instead of making your site accessible, you pay a company a ton of money for them to put a js file on your website to “enable” an “accessibility mode” that actually makes your site a living nightmare to use with assistive technologies.

It’s so bad that disabled users want ways to block them. And these companies claim that accessibility audits and re-writing frontends to be accessible “doesn’t scale” so we need a way to “automate” accessibility.

imagine if this was how we approached software security. just bolt a dependency onto your insecure software to instantly give it a “secure mode”. oh wait.

The announcement of Figma's acquisition by Adobe caught us by surprise celebrating our strategic offsite.

Oh dear, more work😏

Wondering if there are any custom ROM's for the Oneplus Nord n100, most I've seen aren't compatible 😔
