PSA, and sorry for being obnoxious, but image captions weren't designed to be hidden jokes. There are blind people in here and they need those captions for their screen reader software. By providing a readable caption, you help them enjoying the fediverse just as we enjoy it.
When designing a user interface, imagine some old woman using it, say Margaret Hamilton, and she's clicking your app's buttons and saying to you, as old people do,
"Young whippersnapper, when I was your age, I sent 24 people to the ACTUAL MOON with my software in 4K of RAM and here I am clicking your button and it takes ten seconds to load a 50 megabyte video ad and then it crashes
I'm not even ANGRY with you, I'm just disappointed."
Theory: If you have a failed/ing battery on your MacBook Pro the OS won’t tell you. Obviously the OS knows, there are tons of sensors in these batteries, but Apple doesn’t want to tell the user the battery is bad because it’s not supposed to be user serviceable. So instead it just lets the machine degrade and randomly crash to force the user to bring it in. Unless you are like me and take your laptop apart because you think the SSD is failing only to find a battery balloon.
Can someone explain to me how a federal election holiday would work? Presumably the holiday is so that people would have a day off work so that they have time to go vote. Problem is I don’t know any other US federal holiday where no one has to work. Even Christmas and New Year’s people are working. And the people who need the day off to vote the most, lower social economic classes, are the people who will most likely still need to work. So what is the benefit of a federal election holiday?
just zis guy, you know?
