Michael Tsai - Blog - New Git Client: Sublime Merge
On Sublime Merge:
“I found that the diff viewer does not wrap long lines, making it unusable for certain types of files (such as .strings). I also really missed Tower’s way of having a separate list to manage the staged files, rather than showing the hunks and the files together.”

Sub-pixel text rendering
“Higher pixel density displays also negate the need for sub-pixel antialiasing. Apple’s Retina displays really are the final nail in the coffin for sub-pixel antialiasing. If you don’t believe me, feel free to use Skala View (the free iOS app) to load this image onto your iPhone. Make sure it’s set up with the home button icon facing the home button. I’d be surprised if you can tell the difference between the blocks of text.”

Unions Did Great Things for the American Working Class - Bloomberg
“But the world didn’t listen to Freeman and Medoff, and private-sectors unions declined into near-insignificance. Now, four decades later, economists are again starting to suspect that unions were a better deal than the textbooks made them out to be. A recent paper by economists Henry Farber, Daniel Herbst, Ilyana Kuziemko and Suresh Naidu concludes that unions were an important force reducing inequality in the U.S.”

Keyboard Layout Exploration
“When I ported it to the Preonic, I did something that most people would think is strange, and treated the thing as though it was a Planck with a bottom row, rather than a Planck with a top row.

WAI-ARIA menus, and why you should generally avoid using them › Marco's Accessibility Blog
“Generally, it seems that web developers read about these menu roles, and think a set of links within a list that may pop open another sub set of links is enough to warrant it calling a menu. Well, let me put it bluntly: Nope. Because these then don’t support the expected behavior, links bring you to other pages instead of performing an action, and thus are a totally different type of widget, etc.”

The future of DIY abortions is the internet, not a back-alley doctor - The Verge
“Thanks to the introduction of abortion pills mifepristone and misoprostol — which, in combination, effectively induce abortion 95 percent to 98 percent of the time — it’s become possible to terminate an unwanted pregnancy without an invasive medical procedure. More to the point, it’s possible for women to take these pills to induce an abortion on their own, without the assistance of a doctor. Those pills can be bought online — so for many people, it’s possible to avoid the clinic entirely.”

How to build close friendships as an adult? - relationships emotions vulnerability | Ask MetaFilter
“Ask for help. Studies show that it increases intimacy and trust (to the point that thieves often ask their marks to do a favor), because we trust people who make themselves vulnerable to us. It also creates a virtuous circle: we then feel like it’s ok to ask for help in return and the reciprocal trust cycle continues.”
(via: https://ask.metafilter.com/326277/How-to-build-close-friendships-as-an-adult#4699673)

“Another thing I do (and I realize this makes it sound really easy when it isn’t always!) is to just breathe into my own authenticity when I’m with friends. If there’s an opportunity to let my vulnerable self show, I allow for it, I let the moment come and I don’t keep it polite if I sense that all we need is a slight nudge toward realness. I have found that almost all the time, folks respond really positively and truly want to get to a deeper level of knowing another person. This is how I move through the world and I have many friends who I consider so close that even if we don’t talk for a week or more, it is exactly the same and we pick up right where we left off every time. So as a practical real life example, when a coworker indicated that she might have complicated family relationships, I allowed the moment to come and shared with her that I’m estranged from my parents by my own choice. It turned out that she is too, and our relationship deepened in a way that was very meaningful. I think a lot about letting the moment just arrive however it lands, and then thinking ‘the moment has everything it needs inside it, just let it happen and be in it.’”

Don't Use a Liquid Measuring Cup to Measure Dry Ingredients | Lifehacker
“You see, even though dry measuring cups (the scoopy-looking ones) and liquid measuring cups (the usually glass ones with lines on the side) both claim to hold a ‘cup,’ the reality is that a dry measuring cup will hold a bit more. When I filled a dry cup with water, I found it held an average of 10 grams more water than my liquid measuring cups. This probably wouldn’t make a big difference in something like spaghetti sauce, but 10 grams of extra liquid—or 20 or 30, depending on how many cups the recipe calls for—could really mess you up in baking, or ice cream, or candy making.”

Pack Delicate Necklaces Using Press 'n' Seal Wrap | Lifehacker
“Before the men chime in with ‘Why don’t you put one around your neck and wear it the whole trip,’ let me respond with ‘First, of all, how dare you?’ Necklaces can make, break, or elevate an outfit, and I refuse to have my personal expression limited. Luckily, I don’t have to choose; I can pack as many as I want without them tangling, provided I have some Press’n’Seal wrap.”

:focus-within - CSS: Cascading Style Sheets | MDN
“The :focus-within CSS pseudo-class represents an element that has received focus or contains an element that has received focus. In other words, it represents an element that is itself matched by the :focus pseudo-class or has a descendant that is matched by :focus. (This includes descendants in shadow trees.)

“/* Selects a when one of its descendants is focused */
div:focus-within
{
background: cyan;
}


“This selector is useful, to take a common example, for highlighting an entire
container when the user focuses on one of its fields.”

How modders are removing enemies from games to create stress-free experiences | PC Gamer
“Mods for games are usually additive. New features, forgotten content… mods are usually about putting more into a game. Yet in recent years we’ve seen the rise of a particular kind of mod that takes things away. Specifically, taking away a game’s enemies or threats. We previously covered a mod which removed all danger from first-person sci-fi horror Soma—it later become an official game mode—but there are plenty more games out there getting mods that do the same and they’re equally fascinating.”

About txt.fyi
(Perhaps this could be good for posting alt text?)
“Write something, hit publish, and it’s live.

“There’s no tracking, ad-tech, webfonts, analytics, javascript, cookies, databases, user accounts, comments, friending, likes, follower counts or other quantifiers of social capital. The only practical way for anyone to find out about a posting is if the author links to it elsewhere.

“But it is legible, no-nonsense static hypertext, good for short stories, not-short-enough tweets and adventures and all your numbers station or internet dead drop needs. Here you can scream into the void and know the form of your voice is out there forever.

“Search engines are instructed not to index posts and I’ll do my best to make sure this isn’t used as a tool by spammers or other abusers. Nonetheless, posting will be turned off if anything bad grows out of it.

“Use basic Markdown to format posts: #header, BOLD, _italic_, code, >quote, and hyperlinks in the format link. Try !hacker and !professor and !timestamp too.”
