  • Posted to Suggestion: Invite-Only DN again, in reply to S B , Feb 28, 2020

    Then it should probably die. The content is garbage at this point. DN used to be my new tab so I'd see it constantly. Now, I only check it if I'm really dying of boredom and want to catch up on... idk, some shitty Medium article about some pointless design related thing that is actually just written to promote some stupid e-book some dumbass wrote to make money off of.

  • Posted to 4k 27" External Monitor for UI/UX, Jan 18, 2019

    Dell P2715Q

    99% sRGB support Proven line Low price point, but a little older... specs are still comparable

    I use an older HD version of this as my secondary monitor (U2417H) and it's holding up well. I don't really need 4K for what I'm doing (mostly ecommerce sites) and I can always just drag the window over to my Mac if I really need to.

    Twitter has a great algorithm, especially for shit like this. Go follow some people in the industry that you like, check their account pages for recommendations and regularly check your recommendations on the app.

    I only follow a couple of people in the industry. Ana Tudor (because the stuff she comes up with is legitimately confounding to me and I'm blown away every time she posts something on CodePen) and Chris Coyier (because he seems like an actual human being). I'm not gonna name any names, but I've tried following a lot of well known people in the Valley scene and they just seem like new age gurus who post insane life "advice" that could only relate to millionaires and design "advice" that could only relate to designers who haven't actually designed anything in 10 years, but inexplicably run a massive design department. Even the ones who aren't in high positions are like this. It's fucking weird.

    This is awesome. I could have used this years ago on a really cartoonish commercial project. Can't wait for this.

    I'd like to see it in the context of a full form, but it's not such an aberration from the standard radio switch that it would look out of place in a form with a similar UI.

    Apologies for taking so long to get back to you.

    I tried it at Bareburger in Brooklyn, which is an otherwise great burger joint for a "chain".

    The taste is almost there. Not quite there, but it's pretty close. Close enough that I would forgive it if that were the only issue.

    The texture is where the problem lies. It is far, far, far away from feeling like hamburger in your mouth and I could forgive that as well if it was an appealing feeling. I had it medium (which is warmer than I like it) and the center was essentially collapsed into mush when they brought it out. The outer edges sort of held their shape, but as soon as you bit into it, they collapsed into mush as well. It was... not very good. That's being polite.

    I'm a meat eater, but I'm inclined toward cutting as much out as I can. I enjoy a quality burger or steak, but I don't have some ideological anti-vegetarian stance that made me dislike it. In fact, I went out of my way to try it because I really, really wanted to like it.

    I'll wait for v2.0.

    This is nice, but the burger... not so much.
