My favorite IBM design though is their 1980s cloth-bound manuals, designed by Massimo Vignelli. These are a joy to use and to look at.

@kensanata Hahaha, that one's famous. πŸ˜‚ Good old days...
More like non-native metal musicians! Tarja got much better though.

Amazing video about game design and development tricks in crazily limited amounts of RAM.

@thomasfuchs Ahh, good old days, running 3D visualisation on my second hand SGI Indigo, using the spaceball to control it all...
Sadly, after a while the rubber cover on the ball started decaying into a really messy, sticky, brownish state. πŸ™„

Holy crap. Malware hidden in a strand of DNA hijacks the computer that analyzes that particular gene sequence.

We're going to live in a very weird world man.

Our golden age ended on September 11th, 2001. The day we decided to make fear our ultimate ruler, when we succumbed to the false promises of safety in exchange for liberty, when we chose to rate our believes higher than our knowledge, when we started to reject the stranger instead of welcoming him and when we turned our eyes from the future towards the past.

@Mastodon Just updated and looks great!! πŸ‘ πŸ‘
PS: Weirdly, I had to manually clear out my public/packs directory to fix some old CSS that was stuck there -- the profile view, i.e. server.domain/(at)user looked all messed up. Now all is good. πŸ˜€

@cypnk Then I think you would love the Fujifilm X100 series. It has this kind of design and even still has an optic viewfinder and a non changeable prime lens. Been using it for years now. πŸ“Έ

Text files are the cockroaches of the modern information ecosystem.

They might not look pretty and they scare kids, but they are SUPER well adapted and functional and they'll survive almost anything short of total hard disk failure.

Really like the current beta of Toot! on iOS. Fast, beautiful interface. Looking forward to what's to come πŸ‘

@tootapp

@Gargron Looks great. Maybe for large numbers, you could put a greater-than instead of the actual number. Like for example ">99"

@LoboTom Yeah, works on many ad stations! Seems that flipping a regular display by 90 degress is cheaper than buying a purpose built portrait format one...
