Design friends, which tool are you using to prototype fluid animated interactions?
Figma isn't it. Principle was it. Is there anything new?
This article points to issues with using HSL for accessible colors and presents a tool that generates consistent and readable palettes, addressing the limitations of WCAG 2.1 and APCA. See the examples: https://wildbit.com/blog/accessible-palette-stop-using-hsl-for-color-systems #a11y #color #wcag

How does it feel, to treat me like you do?
I am getting somewhere. Super-early times and nothing groundbreaking, but I don’t need a fancy animated auto-scrolling site.
Over the weekend, I played with Framer; it was all joy and fun, but upon reconsidering its pricing scheme, I decided to switch to Astro and redo my experiments. It’ll be more cost-effective, and I’ll learn more.
It’s good to keep up with coding skills.

This is what I worked on during my last two years at Microsoft.
Do you know the history of the ”Sosumi“ sound on macOS?
In the ’80s, Apple sound designer Jim Reekes created “Sosumi” during a trademark dispute with The Beatles’ label, Apple Corps. After adding audio to Macs, Apple Computer was sued for infringement, leading to the renaming of musically-named sounds. Reekes, frustrated, mocked the situation with “Sosumi” (“so sue me”), convincing lawyers it was a meaningless Japanese term. Sosumi is now a famed Mac system sound.
It's nice to see I am not the only one who broke the build today. Alan Wake:
The link to my Vintage Matchbox Generator is now working – if you have paid access to ChatGPT, you can try it out today: https://chat.openai.com/g/g-lIuHLh730-vintage-matchbox-generator #gpt
On the phone with a call center support person:
They: What's your email address?
Me: joao at dordio dot pt
They: ……so your email has no domain?
Me: It has, it's dordio dot pt
Hmm… I appear to be retreating from social media.
So that’s nice.
Until next time.

Hello! What would you like to see added in future updates to iStat Menus?
Some times you just need to go long. What's your favorite focal length? #tryglass
Today is actually the day!
Playing around with Generate in Illustrator 28.
Is it just me, or is there a known issue where macOS 14.1 causes Unity to beachball indefinitely?
I created two icons for the posts.cv community iOS #icon project: one for daytime and one for nighttime. It was a cool exercise, I haven’t done an app icon in ages :)

I updated my <mosaic-fit> Web component, using Promises and resizeObserver. It feels pretty robust now.
I'm seriously impressed with how DALL•E 3 can be used to create initial game assets that I can work on in Aseprite – it’s a huge time saver.
Unlike Midjourney, the standout feature is the conversation. With ChatGPT running in the background, it remembers the entire conversation and understands the context. You don't have to be a prompt expert to be able to generate meaningful results with DALL•E.
Wow, what an achievement! Adobe engineers have somehow managed to use low-resolution (yet bilinearly upscaled) keyboard shortcut labels in Photoshop.
Morning social network announcement: are you, my dear followers, on posts.cv/read.cv? Let’s connect there! https://posts.cv/vancura
Figma: We added variables and variable modes! It's in beta! We'd love for you to give it a try!
Also Figma: More than 4 variable modes is an enterprise-beta feature. $$$
WTF of the day: Adobe After Effects 2023 is crashing on macOS Sonoma for half of the world. Official Adobe statement via a rep: ”The only supported version of AE for Sonoma will be AE 2024 which hasn't been released yet.“ (https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-bugs/adobe-after-effects-amp-premier-2023-crash-ventura/idc-p/14128880)

Please, what EPUB reader do you use on your iPad?
Just a thought here: why is it still impossible to import a PDF in Figma without a plugin, considering that Adobe now owns Figma? I’ve always assumed it was due to Adobe's ridiculous licenses.
