This week, 19 years ago, 2,996 US Americans died in a horrible tragedy.

This week, this year, more than twice as many have died. This year, in total, more than sixty times as many have died.

This day, I mourn the needless loss of 200,000 US Americans. Let's join together, even stronger than we did in 2001, and put an end to this suffering.

macOS Big Sur fixes one of my biggest pet UI peeves!

Since Yosemite, progress bar containers have been long capsules (flat on top and bottom, but with half-circles on the left and right), but the progress bars themselves have had flat edges!

Finally, Big Sur gives the bars the same half-circle edge as their container!!

In case you ever seen someone say that iPhone can't have USB-C or a headphone jack or else it'd be thicker or something...

Clue doesn't work for trans women, non-binary AMAB people, and many whose cycles have been affected by pregnancy. The company has this weird elitism where they think your cycle must involve bleeding for them to care about you. Otherwise, they just say to use it like any emotion tracker, without any functionality at all. Might as well tell trans folk to uninstall and use a pen and paper.

Some of the icons in this pane are the new rounded-square app icon style, and some are the new skeuomorphic object style. I think this ends up looking cluttered and inconsistent at best, confusing and distracting at worst. Perhaps all should be rounded rectangles, or all should be objects, instead of mixing the two.

I’m sure the hate will come someday, but I’ll treat them like any other bullies throughout my life β€” with the love and kindness I wish they'd show to me, rather than the pain they wish me to feel.

If you want, I've written more about this on my blog:

I’m Non-Binary!

It’s been been a very long journey. Before I knew what Non-Binary was, I tried calling myself male, later female. Neither felt right. Now I feel happy having figured out this part of myself, and to share it with the world!

I’m also using hormone therapy to shape my body to better match my gender. Specifically, I’m trying to grow breasts! It's something I've wanted my whole adult life! I've been wearing silicone prosthetics all year, and I gotta say, I really dig the way I look!

Happy independence day. Take a moment to celebrate that we live in a country which can change. We can power through the oppression and hate, and bring acceptance and love to our and future generations.

Stay safe, never give up, God bless.

The first chapter of this episode of is very good. It says things in ways I totally have in my head, but couldn't say better myself.

I highly encourage just listening to those 23 minutes. If you wanna listen to more, awesome, but at least just the start.

When you resize a Big Sur Finder window to its smallest size, it moves the Back/Forward buttons to the dropdown menu, and the title completely disappears
