@cblgh Nice. I was analyzing various funding pages and yours was on my list to check out again – that artisanal progress bar made an impression on me the first time :)
@ice What is finger drumming?
@raucao This is so common in Latin America for produce and all kinds of things, wondering why I never see this in Canada / Europe
@nolan I use unique selectors like XYZSectionComponent so that it's trivial to replace all and change it. I find Zombie pretty fast for my ui testing needs.

@bartleby I believe this is one of the developers talking about it, but I'm not sure to what extent it gets uploaded, I don't understand the technical aspect yet https://twitter.com/moxie/status/1281353119369097217
Did I read this right? Signal uploads your contacts to their servers after you set a PIN? Possible to opt out of that? https://hackers.town/@feonixrift/104482668816503556
So Moxie backtracked and says they'll push a fix to make pins optional. Meanwhile if you don't add a pin (which the app still doesn't say will /upload your signal contact list into the signal servers/) you can't get back in to coordinate a platform switch with your secure contacts. Unless you were already using the desktop app which isn't pin locked, or somehow manage to downgrade the phone app.
Suddenly being held data-hostage -- turn over this data or you can't talk to the people, not even to arrange a different means of contact -- without any forewarning is unacceptable and a perfect example of why centralized infrastructure and single-client rather than interoperable systems are a major failure.

I recently disabled my emoji keyboard and would like to integrate this behaviour into apps. Superior UX.

there's been quite a bit of research on the cognitive/health benefits of multilingualism, but I think the framing tends to be backwards. multilingualism isn't a bonus, but the default (historically, anthropologically, biologically). our species developed multilingual, and still is everywhere not too damaged by colonial steamrollers. monolingualism is a v recent development, an emergent artifact of a capitalist+racist society.
so we should be talking about the cognitive damage of monolingualism.
@cblgh The demo was so fast I had to stop and think to understand what really happened there. Really cool concept and implementation. 👍🏽
