    @lasar That’d be cool. I wish I got anything even close to your *current* speeds. :(

      @matigo The deft way shading is used to suggest form is obvious academically but here, particularly impressive in its economy.

        I supported a Japanese manga artist’s Patreon, so they’ve sending me PSDs of art at various levels of completion. I’ve never looked at manga art this close-up before. [files.app.net] (Good opportunity to try out Affinity Photo, which is working great!)

          @thomasbrand I believe @berg is silently fighting spam in his spare time. Accounts keep getting swiftly deleted by whatever new algorithms are being put in place. Just the other day I got a follow notification and seconds later the account was gone.

            @thomasbrand Unless those accounts are deleted, or if the OAuth tokens were mass-revoked and everybody had to reauthenticate.

                @matigo (But I’m not trying to argue that there isn’t any pain! I empathise with you completely. Human language is beautiful and horrible all at the same time.) @remino

                  @matigo Those are older. I’d wager the average Japanese->English dictionary would not include ‘IIRC’ or ‘TTYL’, for instance, colloquials like ‘wassap’, or industry jargon like ‘TDD’. The pain cuts both ways! @remino

                    @matigo Ah, I suppose you’re not processing it much. Well, if you have heavy workloads, you will find them considerably faster. :)

                      @remino I agree it’s confusing as fuck. Always scratching my head about some new contraction. @matigo
                      cgiffard
                        @matigo I bet you’d find the MBPs vastly faster when it came to heavy workloads. Like exporting audio for podcasts!

                          @matigo We do that so much it isn’t funny here. Acronyms galore (and a stupendous number of duplicates.) @remino

                            @matigo To be fair, that’s just being functionally literate. I would expect people to have a sufficient baseline English literacy before working here too. (And I say that knowing full well that I am not even near functionally literate in Japanese.) @remino

                              @matigo Huh. Really? I thought the CPU was considerably faster.

                                  Somebody did a performance test into our production cache invalidation SQS queue today, for *five hours*. Still roaming the office hunting for the perpetrator.
