Reading for the fifth time (two in Italian, and three in English) The Machine Stops, by E.M. Forster.

I can’t believe this sci-fi short story got written in 1909… Forster was a real visionary.

Mast for iOS is just SO good *_* A few bugs here and there (and no notifications?), but it's very customizable and the UI looks real nice.

If you give it a try, make sure to disable the confetti animation on every interaction. :D That's a bit too much haha

I feel like I want to make a wiki of absolutely everything I know, and then eventually it would just become this living library of my knowledge set, with some sort of filter for deadends to further explore and some way to string disparate things together

@lucaorio @nikivi @neauoire Really nice! Here's my Pok3r with Clears. I've switched the caps lock and control key to mirror the HHKB, my dream keyboard.

I've programmed a handful of shortcuts in, like moving arrows to FN + WASD, moving the media keys to the number row, and a few extras.

I don’t know how this happened, but I marked myself as out of office for the next few years. An INNOCENT mistake, now part of my team’s calendar 🤣

I have started to rethink and classify all my custom shortcuts.

It took me one hour to analyze and remap just the windows and layout's ones: they are now *all* triggered by the ctrl modifier.

It is a lot of work, but it will pay off! ⌨️

Don't ask me why (...😅), but I had to write a small Sketch Plugin to wipe the fill from every layer part of a document. Now, I'm about to launch it and iterate on 8200 layers. Wish me luck. 🤞🤣

HA! I reset my .chunkwmrc to start from scratch, and I can now split on a third column. YAY! 🎉

And here are some other images, grabbed straight from Alfred preferences, and other settings I've changed.

Alfred users! 👒 For whoever is interested, here's a link to install a theme I made - Nero (2019):

Here's how it looks in my all-black environment 😊

Is anyone aware of a Sketch shortcut to select the layer on top (or bottom) of an already selected one?

(please, don't tell me I need to write a plugin for this 😅)

@lucaorio That said, I’ve found myself wanting a third column, but it would probably be overkill. Most of the times a bsp layout feels enough.

I spent an hour or so playing with chunkwm tonight.

It's a very nice tiling window manager, but sometimes it gets a bit in your way.

I will have to setup proper shortcuts via skhd in order to understand if I'm going to stick with it or not.

Sticking to an 8pt grid even in my Alfred theme! 📐

@neauoire Devine, thanks for the follow, my friend. You're such an inspiration!

I’ve learned many lessons over the past 34 years. Most of them the hard way. However, keeping a good balance between time spent on what I love vs everything else is something I still struggle with.

I’m not necessarily referring *just* to work/life balance. I simply get devoured by what I love. I enjoy that rabbit hole, even if I’m totally aware that most of the time it’s not healthy. 🤣

Hi, friends! 👋 Guess what? At Netflix, we're looking to hire a System Designer! 🎨📐📣

FTE, on-site. Systems thinking, and previous experience or contributions to a System are required. 🙃

Please send my way some portfolios, if you're interested! Boosts are also appreciated. 🙏

Could aligning my artboards to 0;0 be considered as OCD?
