Hey Society6,

do you know what’s a bit weird? When I click on a product picture to embiggen it (the curser turns into a magnifying glass with a +-symbol) and the new pic that pops up is literally 50px smaller (550px turns into 500px):

Measurements made with PixelStick, T-shirt pictured is for upcoming RPG Moonhunters by Kitfox.

UPDATE: Got a mail from Society 6 and it was a bit cryptic but I think this is so t-short motives can’t be copyright infriged because of low-res? Pretty sad (but somewhat understandable).

Ach Adobe,

du schnuckeliger, kleiner Design-Tool-Monopolist, UI/UX ist einfach deine große Stärke, gell:

AdobeReader-Wiederholen-VS-Weiter

Und die Eleganz dieses Satzes! Poesie! Da machste deinem Namen mal wieder alle Ehre.

EDIT: und Pluspunkte dafür, dass das „Wiederholen“, äh, „Weiter“ weder horizotnal noch verikal im Button zentriert ist. Und „Adobe Reader“ weder oben auf Linie noch vertikal mittig mit dem Logo ist. Viel mehr ist da nicht mehr falsch zu machen. Außer vielleicht, dass der Abstand des goldenen Buttons vom rechten Rand kleiner ist als der Abstand der Schrift vom linken?

Zitat des Tages

„So I think what’s going on here is the same impulse behind the LGBTQ community being really sick of coming-out novels; we don’t want to read stories about ourselves, we want to see ourselves in stories. We want to be heroes, not issues. We want to discover we have magic powers, fall into a portal to another world, accidentally awaken an ancient and powerful entity – all the things that straight people, white people, cis people, abled people, get to do as the default heroes.“

Word.

Promo-poster (not 100% sure who’s the illustrator) by Kelly Bastow* for The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy** by Mary Sue-editor Sam Maggs. (Via) (Via)

*Thanks to Sam Mags for pointing this out in the comments!
**Not to be confused with the Geeks Guide to the Galaxy which is worth listening to (depending on the person interviewed).

Was ich auch nie lernen werde

ist, dass bei Keyboard-Shortcuts in Programmen (shortcuts = awesome, btw):

^ = ctrl/Strg

(und nicht z. B. die Taste unterm Esc, die auch das Grad-Zeichen beherbergt).

Scotland,

you fucked it.

Fear and narrow-mindedness win again.

Color me unsurprised (but still disappointed, I kinda wanna call it the Obama-feeling).
