My Telegram posts on 2020’s weeks 30 & 31

Telegram is socialist. What’s worse, it filed suit against Apple for “antitrust” violations. I can’t stand this anymore, so I will stop posting to my Telegram channel. This is its last archive.

Week 28

Tuesday, July 21

The International Space Station passed by:

Sunday, July 26

Telegram now shows a preview of the actual image sent rather than a useless emoji. This is what good design is all about.

Monday, July 27

Good suggestion:

Live-commenting WWDC 2020 on Monday, June 22

The icons are jelly and that’s annoying:

Oh, there’s a portal in the fountain at Apple Park.

The Mac is moving to Apple-made processors for top performance. This is good news.

iOS & iPadOS apps run on the Mac without any changes needed. Catalyst was a short-term thing.

Instead of credits at the end there’s an assurance that Apple took care so nobody would get infected. Sign of the times:

These tiles have a nice look:

Wow:

Also, inconsistent use of articles.

The empty-space-to-the-right issue has been solved. My project illustrations now take up almost the entire screen width. Looks stunning:

What happened to your heads, people?

Friday, June 19

Netflix’s interface is excellent: when starting watching a new season, it gives me a recap of the previous one.

Oh, and best of all, Netflix lets me skip the useless intros of movies and series.

Saturday, June 20

One of my favourite things about the UK is the unique scent of bread coming from bakeries. bakeries. It goes along fantastically with the industrial smell of London.

Copyright isn’t meant to protect authors.

Elbow bumps were fantastic while they lasted.

Friday, June 5

I’m deeply saddened by the reality of affirmative action in the United States.

I will do everything possible to make sure that this never happens in the countries I live in.

I do not trust Elon Musk. And I didn’t even mention the overpriced Tesla stock tweets.

Beautiful:

Just updated my website. Each project now has a stunning image:

The next step is filling the empty space to the right.

Leap years are indeed worse than regular years: there’s an extra day for bad events to happen.

Interesting clock you have, Ros Atkins:

I never understood this sort of infographic. If it’s impossible to compare different-coloured areas to each other, what’s the point of the whole thing?

Friday, May 29

Just updated my post about train door buttons with better photos and a mention of the pandemic.

I hate topiary.

Saturday, May 30

In January, I wrote the following:

As much as airlines want to make money, humans will continue being humans and change seats with each other. This is, of course, splendid.

Well, I’m afraid this won’t be true for the next few years.

One of the best things about watching movies at home is being able to pause it and think about what’s going on.

The words month and Moon share a common root because a month is a period related to the Moon’s motion.

Made myself a standing workplace outside:

From President Zelensky’s NYT op-ed: “Ukraine remains a good partner and friend of the United States. We received the military assistance we needed to continue to ensure our country’s independence.”

Independence, you say? Needing something = being dependent on that something’s provider.

I love drinking tea with ice cream.

Friday, May 22

I always click Submit instead of the arrows. Stupid design:

I’m writing a program that will help me write another program.

People should not be working towards 1TB/s internet, but towards files that take up less space.

Saturday, May 23

Evil doesn’t exist. Interests do.

It’s a good thing that English got rid of the long s.

If we ſtill had it today, reading would be much ſlower and ſlippier.

Sunday, May 24

Government bureaucracy is not always bad: it’s a strong filter that stops all extreme initiatives.

My Telegram posts from April 16 till May 16, 2020

Week 21

This is everything published to my Telegram channel in the last month.

April 16

Since January, Twitter has the rights to do whatever it wants to with published content. This is contrary to my world view in which I own and control everything that is a product of my mind.

The blog format doesn’t suit everything I’d like to say, so I started this Telegram channel.

April 20

Apple Notes on the Mac is absolutely unresponsive, especially to two-finger clicks. Keep in mind that this software is made in-house...

April 21

Elevator operators now have a job again.

April 26

FIGMA IS FANTASTIC

April 28

The Japanese know what pleasure is: they have Boneless Fish!

Mac bugs keep getting worse and worse. Apple should release another Snow Leopard this year.

May 2

Sometimes I want to do an image search with the picture I have in mind.

May 8

Just saying: I don’t care about trends. I always act out of my own will.

P. S. I hope these words won’t come back to haunt me.

May 14

It always surprises me how Disney makes ugly animals look cute.

Room 104 is the dumbest yet most brilliant show. It proves that any nonsensical artistic idea should be experimented with.

The voice actor impersonating Trump never sounds like Trump, but he does create a metaphor.

May 15

In the past few weeks I really fell in love with jasmine tea.

May 16

The slogan for the 2020 Eurovision would have been “Open Up”. Hahaha
