This is amazing, we evolved the alphabet from pictograms to highly stylized characters to letters and now we're going full circle by incorporating emojis such as 🐂 that thousands of years earlier became "a" and 🐟 that became "d"
How is she not already a superhero?
I wish I had the money to use Oracle SQL databases. I’d still use postgres everywhere, but damn we could spend that cash on so many other nice things
Fellow Portland OR folks, please note that there's a rally happening on 1/14 to push for municipal broadband in PDX. A municipal solution can help us protect net neutrality and put users first.
If this is an approach you support, the event details are over on FB (no account required to view): https://www.facebook.com/events/1775718709399941/
I'll be there :)
Are any of you interested in having your cat featured in an upcoming issue of The Recompiler? I always need submissions for our Cats & Computers page (what sort of computer your cat is hanging out with is up to you!). Email pics and photo credit to email@example.com
Any illustrators looking for a weekly gig? We'd like to try having a doodle for each episode of The Recompiler podcast (recompilermag.com/podcast). You'd have 2-3 days from topic to finished graphic on each one. Send a portfolio link to firstname.lastname@example.org
Crowdfunding a hacker zine Show more
If you can spare some money to back a feminist hacker zine, "The Recompiler" sounds worth it imo :)

UI/UX things that are overlooked but make life better -
My microwave's turntable rotates at a rate such that, when you cook for 30 second intervals [30s, 1m, 1m30s, etc.] the turntable returns to the same orientation.
This means that if you put in a mug with a handle towards the door, the handle will be towards the door when you're done with most common durations.
It's the little things like that that show that someone paid attention to how an interface is used.
Stickermule really sucks if you sell a couple stickers and want cash for your sales instead of store credit. The store credit expires and you can only request a payout if you have $40 or more. So I have $30 now $25 of which will expire in 30 days and I can't request a payout and I don't want to order more stickers.
It's legit shitty if you are an artist that wants to make a couple bucks with their service.
Whelp… looking like the turbo on the Subaru is probably blown. Not the greatest way to start off the track season.
