    The golden ration is definitely BS. :P

    I suspect it’s predominately one person or company (lots of identical IPs on the accounts that signed up). I delete as much as I can, as fast as I can. :)

  • Posted to Apple Steps Into the Future with MacOS 10.14 Mojave, in reply to Jamie Diamond , Oct 02, 2018

    I completely agree, and I like Mojave a lot. Dark mode is rough, but as you said, it’s still early days.

    Mojave is worth it for macOS updates coming from the preference pane alone.

    If you have very specific concerns, it would be great to know what those are. I definitely have some of my own, and I try to consistently act with them in mind.

    I think it’s a good question. It’s not rude, and the discussion is an important one.

    I don‘t feel guilty, because I do my best to ensure the things I work on are ethical. I realise I am very fortunate to be in a position where I can do that. I want the world to be a better place, and giving people the tools to help make that happen is important, even if my contribution is minor. Leaving the industry wouldn’t help that cause.

    I hope it delivers the comedy you’re after. :D

    The best bit: You never know when it’ll happen.

    So far I’ve broken a few. One made a slow leaking noise and I wasn’t sure if it was some audio driver white noise issue coming from the speakers until I figured it out (I’ve had issues like that before, and I often have to reach for the volume quickly before it gets too loud). Another exploded and I landed really hard on my ass. It hurt a fair bit.

    The comedy can be as slapstick as you imagine it to be.

    I hope you didn’t see my comment as negative — I didn’t intend it to be taken that way. It’s just a really, really difficult problem to solve, and as much as I’d like it to happen, I don’t think it is likely.

    My questions were partly intended to spark some conversation. If SVG isn’t the format you’d like, then I’d love to know where it is failing? I suspect SVG is not what you’re after, but it’d be good to have an idea on where you’d like improvements.

    Pixar’s Universal Scene Description (USD) format is an attempt at what you’re after for 3D scenes. I think a big issue is that for compatibility, these things tend to fall back to simpler and non-optimal ways of describing contents, just like PDFs often contain bitmaps for things like shadows, gradients, and other elements. Opening a PDF might be possible in lots of tools, but depending on your use, an un-editable shadow or gradient may not be what you’d like.

    The wish is born from the pain I experience. Very often I'm forced to use different design software then my preferred one. Handover to developers is another problem, you are probably aware of that as well.

    Oh, absolutely. There’s still lots of problems to be solved by the industry and our tools. And again, my comments were more about the frustration in this being hard to solve. Right now, I feel like large parts of my workflow are broken, and I want it fixed.

    Peace!

    PS: Good luck with Skala (can't wait to see it)

    ❤️
