    I had the same problem. I now run Mojave off an external Patriot Evlvr Thunderbolt 3 drive, which is insanely fast. I split the internal Fusion drive, using the 128GB SSD for Premiere/After Effects cache, with the remainder for Time Machine backups. It's made a massive difference!

    I'd like them to follow the same strategy they've taken with their laptops. So, in the same way the Macbook now has a solitary port, I'd like the car to have just one door. I mean, let's face it, who really needs more than one door, it's just unnecessary and ruins the form factor.

    Over 46 minutes long. I pity the people who had to sit through that presentation.

    I'm probably in the minority with this viewpoint, but I think the place looks pretty depressing. I wouldn't fancy working in a huge, open-plan warehouse, located in the middle of nowhere, debating the merits of an incredibly minor interface tweak with a bunch of beards.

    Free food and laundry services sound appealing on the surface, but these facilities are designed to keep staff imprisoned in the office.

    This is undoubtedly the greatest thing that has ever been posted on DN.

    The longest email chain was 8 painful emails long.

    I'd be pretty annoyed if I discovered that I was communicating with someone that long, presumably in great detail about a project, only to discover it was research for a tedious blog post.

    It's a significant improvement. As a regular user of the site, I found the old UI particularly frustrating.

    We've just launched this new abstract music website to promote Ludovico Einaudi's album, Stanze. The site allow you to create custom visualisations using audio data from the album's tracks. Any feedback gratefully received!

    Full credit to you for taking the time to write this piece. It's a shame that far too many people in our industry are guarded about their knowledge, in the misguided fear that sharing their skills will somehow lead to a lack of paid work.

    The only part I take umbrage with is:

    "Our site looks so 1995 right now"

    Man, I did some bitchin' stuff in 1995, full on blink-tag-extravaganza-animated-gif mayhem! It's a shame that shit predates the wayback engine, I can't find any of my work earlier than 1998.
