    A conversation at work about the supposed fragmentation of the Android OS turned into a deep dive into our sites' analytics data. If you're interested, here's what I discovered about our device/platform landscape: http://goo.gl/vkyfpk

      @remus I believe they support Vector PDFs. My husband is an iOS dev and has mentioned it several times - here's an article that I think is accurate. http://martiancraft.com/blog/2014/09/vector-images-xcode6/

        @mgrimes @matigo @rabryst that's definitely the largest reason for it. It also helps that the network had a barrier to entry ($) for a while that further prevented the lack of adoption.

          What is happening is the antithesis of the Internet. I am outraged, but am silent in places where to express it puts my family at risk of harm. We cannot let this continue.

            It is fucked up that people sit behind a monitor and threaten lives and are not held responsible. This is intolerable, and we cannot continue to allow this. This is the Internet we've built, and I'm afraid there's no place for me anymore because I am woman

              There's something wrong when I am afraid to speak up and stand with other women in solidarity. I'm not afraid of physical repercussions, it's the digital. I'm afraid of personal info being exposed that will take years to recover from.

                I feel safe discussing Gamergate here and nowhere else. That's a major Internet problem.

                  My stepdad, referring to my mom's menopause: it's like living with the justice league. This one's the Flash.

                    My mom is following me on twitter now, and I'm truthfully not sure how I feel about it. Uncomfortable, for sure, but unjustifiably so.

                      I know I'm just another designer bitching about the state of things, but Photoshop is for photo editing. Not for page layout, not for web design.

                        Who's going to the RVAHackathon meet up tomorrow?

                            Tonight is writing night. I wrote another piece entitled "Perfectionism and Design." https://medium.com/p/df61015799c0

                              I wrote another thing on Medium, this time about why I think Advertising is dead (and one of the reasons I made the decision to leave.) https://medium.com/p/504f12500d

                                Grandma Grace was really mean, which made the "share your favorite memory" portion of the day awkward. Only thing we'll miss is her pumpkin pie. And that was the general consensus.

                                  I just want to curl up on my sofa with alcohol and basketball. Which I can't do in public because of the family that abhors alcohol.

                                    Family is nice but right now they are driving us batshit crazy. When we aren't discussing the funeral, power of attorney, my in-laws' lack of retirement planning or how we try to tell everyone what to do, they're telling us to have babies now.

                                      Everyone is having babies now, and I'm all like "ok. Fine. I want one now. You won."

                                          @mrbeefy were you able to contain all the farts? If so, congratulations.
