this reminds me, back in the mid-2000s i remember seeing some public service announcements on a local tv station, and these were basically like presentations with music in the background, and that music was often just the default music supplied with windows xp's media player

Peeking into Affinity Publisher. 

Positioned as a replacement for Adobe InDesign, Affinity Publisher holds several advantages:

• Much, much less expensive
• Doesn't extend tendrils into every crevice of the operating system
• User interface isn't a laggy shitshow
• Pretty good importing of the IDML format that InDesign happily exports
• Might be coaxed to work in Linux?

The biggest disadvantage I see immediately is that it lacks what InDesign calls "GREP styles" – regular expressions within paragraph styles that automatically apply character styles to matching text. I use these constantly, and they save me an immense amount of work. Doing without means a lot of applying character styles manually, which can be labor intensive but more importantly is very error-prone.

Even so, this might be the software I switch to. I want out of Adobe, and I want out of Windows. At the very least, I want the alternate options to be there, and the sooner I learn them the less painful it'll be if I have to make that move suddenly.

Oh, right, reminder to self to open up all my InDesign files and export 'em to IDML....

Today I learnt that CSS has added a “hover” check to @media queries, and that every modern browser supports it, so maybe I can finally add some “you’re on a touch screen” fixes to my personal site, which has a lot of cool mouse pointer hover effects.

@mozilla@twitter.com Hi, I'm sure that whoever runs this account has no idea who I am, but I founded @mozilla@twitter.com and I'm here to say fuck you and fuck this. Everyone involved in the project should be witheringly ashamed of this decision to partner with planet-incinerating Ponzi grifters.

Always nice to spot an urban fox! This one painted by @Annatomixx@twitter.com at Wylde Green train station, where the @friendsofWGts@twitter.com have adopted the station and work to enhance it, including developing a 'Green Corridor' to help support local wildlife and biodiversity. Great stuff!
