me: any idea how my house burned down?

fireman: fireworks

Got me one of those posh "midnight" MacBook Airs. Bloody rapid little thing!

not much of a Spotify user but didn't want to miss the fun w/ their Instafest app so I rolled my own with API + some CSS animations + Splitting.js

Hello people of the Fediverse! Some of you may have heard that a new Mastodon client, Ivory,  is in development for iOS (and Mac!). This is true! Tapbots is going all in on Mastodon and we hope this place continues to grow and thrive. Tweetbot will continue to be developed alongside Ivory as a lot of code is shared. A new Mac version of Tweetbot and Ivory are also currently in development and we are working hard on getting those towards a public beta state.

deffo some cool stuff to blog about there too, especially the `ch` unit trick for the heading indents

📣 Calling all designers – or those of you who fancy a challenge

I have created a set of prompts for the #DecDailyUI challenge. An advent of UI design 😊

Participate all month or just for some, it doesn't matter! Just have fun with it 🎉

I’ve kept the prompts vague enough for variety here.

Also it doesn’t matter what order you do these in, just choose one each day and tick it off the list 😊

Prompt list:

#UI #UIDesign #DesignChallenge #AdventOfDesign

18k + minutes is pretty darn good considering I mix it up with vinyl, owned tracks and Apple Music

I called it when it came out, but no surprises, the new Everything Everything album appears to be my album of the year.

i spend so much of my life in iA Writer, so it makes sense really

Just logged into Twitter to lock the account and good gravy, my notifications were absolute trash 🥴

Couldn't have noped out of there quicker if I tried

All these website have got to stop switching to dark mode by default without providing an option to switch back to light mode.

Not all of us find reading in dark theme comfortable.

The more websites do this, the more I want browsers to to enable us to undo it.

It's your yearly reminder that I built this very handy Christmas decorations room planner! I hope you find it helpful when arranging your festive decor.

Ever wished it was easier to view posts or profiles from another Mastodon instance on *your* instance, without any manual copy & paste?

I made Masto-Redirect, a shortcut that can redirect both account pages and individual posts to your own Mastodon instance.

Takes 1 minute to set up, can run on all Apple platforms. Free to download. Hope you'll find this useful:
