it is probably not very good that my audio interface gets power through usb from my desktop and unlike the keyboard and mouse, when the computer is turned off it still stays turned on (or at least the power led is turned on)
i could fix this by turning off the power switch on the thing that my pc is plugged into, but that's twice as many buttons and i'm definitely gonna forget to do it
Accessibility, Public thoughts ripped from a locked thread because im lazy
I think the root problem is that "accessiblity" is a complex problem with many different forms of it to cater to often conflicting needs.
Like, unix tools are not accessible for some people with ADHD or dyslexia, or people who have Parkinson's disease or motor problems (Although arguably GUIs are worse in the latter case).
But GUI tools in the age of Electron and thin layer OpenGL interfaces are often inaccessible for people with screenreaders or visual problems.
And people saying outright "this is not built accessibly" are absolutely not thinking about the developer with burnout, complex mental health needs, and limited time.
So it might be a better model to look at accessiblity in the same way we look at threat models, and CLIs are actually in many ways the best tradeoff for all of the things I have mentioned.
re: creepy dms
unrelated but I just don't get this mindset at all
"we've never talked before, this person doesn't know who i am, what i look or sound like and literally anything about me, but I'm going to message them and seriously ask them to marry me without even introducing myself"
like how is that even gonna work
weird hypothetical body stuff
@AgathaSorceress Imagine if you could control whether your hair and nails grow (and in the case of hair, where). Imagine if you could make your teeth, eyes and other body parts fall off and grow replacements at will.
re: creepy dms and age stuff
i'm kinda worried that like
right now i'm 17, and whenever i get creepy messages i can usually say 2-3 times that I'm a minor and they will give up
but in around half a year i'll no longer be a minor and then that excuse won't work
i guess there's always the block button, but it still feels less safe when people can go "well umm technically being 18 years old means you're an adult"
