And finally, no one can roast Bill Ackman harder than Bill Ackman can roast himself:

“…the Financial Times published a quiz testing readers’ ability to tell the difference between Ackman’s tweeting and Patrick Bateman’s unhinged inner monologue from American Psycho. ‘I took the quiz,’ Ackman told me. ‘And I got a perfect score.’”

Are there any hacks to modern MacOS 14 that forces windows to have an actual title bar at the top of them? You know, an area that contains the application title or document title and allows you to move is easily?

For instance, with Firefox and lots of tabs open, the window itself has no tittle bar at the top. Moving the window is difficult and only possible on the far left or right of the top of the window. It also doesn't identify itself.

Update: see replies!

@paulrickards I agree with the conditional scroll bar hiding though; it's only really needed while you scroll and who in their right mind moves the mouse allll the way over to the right side and grabs and drags, in a world of touchscreens and mousewheels?

@stilescrisis @paulrickards yeah this is my point basically. Not sure I would argue about window outlines or title bars, need to think more about that.

I really want motherfucking quote posts on here.

Right now there's a lot of German-language posts that are interesting for a larger audience, but no, Mastodon doesn't allow me to translate these or add context to them and share with my followers.

I feel like this is social network kindergarten.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do not reply with suggestions of other software I should use.

I have difficulty with the "I only use lower case" folks. I mean, e e cummings could pull that off, so.. what you're implicitly telling us you are as talented as e e cummings? OK .. I .. guess?

@trenchworms It just feels like fun at the expense of literally everyone else. Not a good feeling.

codinghorror,
@codinghorror@infosec.exchange avatar

@leoncowle of course, for me, that's a given

codinghorror,
@codinghorror@infosec.exchange avatar

@trenchworms It's fine, the general vibe is "inflicting this strange writing style that's hard to read is more important than everyone else who will ever read it" and .. I'm very sorry but I can't go for that, no can do. Who's more important here? Who is being accorded basic respect? 🤔

@joranelias Wow this is exactly in my wheelhouse and I hadn't seen this. Thank you.

@trenchworms If "we" like that so much, why isn't it the standard, then?

codinghorror,
@codinghorror@infosec.exchange avatar

@trenchworms At some point this becomes "agree to disagree". Writing is meant to be read, and demonstrating a basic level of respect for the reader is the starting point for that. If you are writing only for yourself, fine.

codinghorror,
@codinghorror@infosec.exchange avatar

@trenchworms I will read those all lower case pieces, but I will resent the writer, unless they are literally as talented as e e cummings. So.. good luck, I guess?

codinghorror,
@codinghorror@infosec.exchange avatar

@trenchworms More deeply, the art is in what you are saying, not the technical details of how you are saying it. So it's a distraction, a deflection, a kind of lie. Again, unless you are e e cummings and writing poetry :)

@codinghorror@infosec.exchange avatar

@trenchworms I apologize for going so deep on this, but the all lowercase people are kinda like the "we don't want to use semicolons" JavaScript people. Verdict? "As a best practice, we should use standard conventions within our projects, and in these particular cases, that convention should include using semicolons because even if you don’t add them, the language needs them anyway and will try—but not always succeed—to fix them with ASI."

@jwz yeah it's complicated. On the one hand, I believe in letting people be themselves, on the other hand.. I dunno

Poor Things is like a much, much more accessible The Lobster. It is almost as good as Everything Everywhere All At Once which is an unbelievable compliment. See it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlbR5N6veqw

@ristkof @u47 yeah but 11 is unheard of. That's a HUGE number.

This Happiness Lab podcast episode "Unhappy Millionaire" is kind of blowing my mind. I've written about Dan Gilbert before, he's a genius, and it just gets better and better from there. Hard recommend (minus the annoying hard-coded ads) -- I guarantee this will surprise you in ways you absolutely don't see coming https://www.pushkin.fm/podcasts/the-happiness-lab-with-dr-laurie-santos/the-unhappy-millionaire
