Surprising absolutely no one that knows me.
I recommend underlining links in body content.
Link underlines are the punk rock of design. They care little for your expensive fancy typeface. They just want to get shit done.
Add them on broken sites.
Kind of interested in a KVM for home so that it's easy to switch between my work laptop and my home desktop.
- DisplayPort or HDMI (both would be great)
- USB for keyboard and mouse (additional USB for a webcam and mic would be great)
- Audio jack for speakers
Any recommendations? I'm going to poke around newegg and whatnot, but it's nice to hear from folks who've been using one for a while about how it is.
Arguing that Apple or Google did something a particular way will not sway me on its own.
They get it wrong just as often as the rest of us. Their size and ubiquity do not make them any better.
@aardrian Do you have any resources that explain how to write good alt text for images? I need to try to teach the rest of my team how to write alt text.

This is a bit extra but is anyone working on open source home automation HARDWARE? Like from components one could identify? I'm starting to plan out my home setup (I figure it'd be worth it since I spend a lot of time at home) and I'm noticing that I have to rely on a lot of things to emit information in order to talk to it.
Does this thing exist? (Boosts okay)
I'm building a new countertop / workspace for my garage. The vertical supports are 2x4s and 4x4s, and I'd like rubber or silicone caps that could fit over the ends to protect them from liquids that would potentially pool on the concrete. Is this a thing that exists, or am I hacking it?
Work: I design & build websites as part of NOAA's Science on a Sphere team.
