I may give #GravitDesigner a try, but I would prefer something open source that stores it’s files in an open format like #SVG. Not something that exports to SVG, but just saves and opens SVG by default. I also want to keep files locally, so #Figma is out.
@mikey hey Mike!

Hey, welcome @almossawi to vis.social! 😄
Oh, no! I just learned that my venerable web host, WebFaction, was acquired by GoDaddy. 🤢
I moved to WebFaction after using TextDrive for years. Then TextDrive became Joyent (ugh), then spun off once they realized they'd get rich on Node.js, then TextDrive was dead, then promises of revival, then… Well, another decade, another web host.
I just hate being forced to do maintenance on all my old sites and services. 🙂
Fantastically geeky ASCII art illustrations on this NY Times piece: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/22/technology/defcon-hackers-privacy-anonymity.html
Chrome browser now auto-logs you in to itself. I noticed this a few days ago, and an happy to see the significance of this change written up so clearly. Makes me happy that I've stuck with Safari as my primary browser for years, and used Chrome only for dev work. https://blog.cryptographyengineering.com/2018/09/23/why-im-leaving-chrome/

“The investigation into the Skripal poisoning, known as Operation Wedana, will stand as a high-profile test of an investigative technique Britain has pioneered: accumulating mounds of visual data and sifting through it.”
