1. I think my only other complaint about Flash is the fact that I can't render PNGs above 8000 pixels in either dimension.

    1. @redenchilada sounds like a personal problem. Mine can just fine.

      1. @alargesmallhorse CS5(.5) doesn't seem to want to go any higher for me. It kind of irritates me sometimes.

        Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:33:40 UTC from web
        1. @redenchilada >CS5. There's your problem... al of your problems.

          Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:36:48 UTC from web
          1. @alargesmallhorse I've grown too used to the interface. Plus it has autosave.

    2. @widget Hey, Flash is honestly not that bad as an animation platform. As a method of web distribution, though...

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:39:25 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
    3. @widget Macromedia had simplicity on it's side, but Adobe had innovation.

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:39:29 UTC from web
    4. @widget And yet, so dominant, entrenched, and several-industries-standard. -_-'

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:42:40 UTC from web
    5. @widget Hey, watchu got against QWERTY?

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:45:32 UTC from web
    6. @widget

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:46:39 UTC from web
    7. @widget Whuh?

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:46:50 UTC from web
      1. @scribus One of those things where it's "good enough", and that + entrenchment leads to better alternatives being unable to dislodge it.

        Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:48:37 UTC from IdentiCurse
        1. @bitshift I honestly don't get how DVORAK is "better". Isn't the layout of keys simply a matter of personal preference?

          Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:49:41 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
          1. @redenchilada QWERTY was designed to impede your typing speed, so that Typewriters wouldn't jam. So using QWERTY is actually a handicap. Dvorak was made for programmers too, so that's a bonus. xD

            Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:50:48 UTC from web
            1. @minti Oh. I guess I can see that. I can't really see myself learning a different layout any time soon, though.

              Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:52:01 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
              1. @redenchilada Yeah, it's like learning to write with your left hand rather than your right (etc.) Due to the difficulty it's not exactly worth it unless you're really dedicated. xD

                Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:52:55 UTC from web
                1. @minti I'm left-handed and I find this offensive. :(

                  Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:53:54 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
                  1. @redenchilada I know, that's why I added the etc. :p I meant "and vice versa." :p

                    Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:54:46 UTC from web
                  2. @redenchilada I'm offended and I find you left-handed.

                    Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:54:54 UTC from web
                    1. @scribus *extreme mega !southpaw punch*

                      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:55:36 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
                      1. @redenchilada You know, when you made that I was SO tempted to make !northpaw. Like, you have no clue.

                        Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:56:12 UTC from web
                        1. @minti I've never heard of northpaw describing righties. I guess it'd make sense though.

                          Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:57:36 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
                          1. @redenchilada Me neither, actually. Then decided to look it up and found out people have used it before. So, go figure.

                            Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:58:08 UTC from web
                      2. @redenchilada *le KO!*

                        Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:56:34 UTC from web
                2. @minti we talkin about Dvorak? Cool! I'm trying to convert over from qwerty to Dvorak and though it has been awkward relearning where everything except a and m are, and I though I can't say ive gotten the hang of it, I am extremely surprised at how many words you can type just on the home row. I can see where the reduced risk of carpal tunnel idea comes from!

                  Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:58:06 UTC from StatusNet iPhone
            2. @minti Actually qwerty is arranged so that the type bars wouldn't catch one another... just type a word.. most words the letters wont be next to one another.

              Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:56:01 UTC from web
              1. @nlghtmaremoon That too. Still, it's arranged to make you type slower so it won't jam. :p

                Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:56:38 UTC from web
                1. @minti according to wiki, and Rehr, Darryl, "Why QWERTY was Invented" and "Consider QWERTY" "A popular myth is that QWERTY was designed to "slow down" typists though this is incorrect – it was designed to prevent jams[4] while typing at speed, allowing typists to type faster"

                  Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:01:19 UTC from web
                  1. @nlghtmaremoon Ehh, alright. :p

                    Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:02:26 UTC from web
                2. @minti so although it slows you down, I don't think it was designed to slow you down.

                  Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:02:14 UTC from web
          2. @redenchilada It's more efficiently organized, common letters on the homerow, stuff like that. It allows faster typing and is supposed to reduce repetitive stress injuries.

            Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:51:58 UTC from web
          3. @redenchilada I'm not convinced it is, given pretty much all the studies that ever came down strongly in favour of _either_ were, sooner or later, discredited. But the broader problem is pretty applicable, "QWERTY problem" is just a bad name for it, given how disputed the QWERTY/Dvorak difference is.

            Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:52:27 UTC from IdentiCurse
        2. @bitshift And yes, I _am_ arguing about a specific case when it was meant to be an example.

          Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:50:09 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
    8. @widget Yup. xD

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:48:06 UTC from web
    9. @bitshift @widget OH, got it! Yeah, okay, like how QWERTY is standard, etc, etc... # I thought you meant it like "It's a problem with QWERTY itself!" or something.

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:50:28 UTC from web
    10. @widget Yeah, I don't have the motivation to do that kind of thing. 90% of my time I'm talking with people and using Dvorak drives me nuts cause my ability to talk is basically killed. xD

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:55:46 UTC from web
    11. @widget Well that hump is a massive turn back for me, otherwise I'd dive in right now. :/

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 02:59:00 UTC from web
    12. @widget that's exactly what I do. I hate how the iPod touch doesn't have Dvorak... I Need damn practice.

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:02:10 UTC from StatusNet iPhone
    13. @widget yeah, I Gots linux. I'm just forced to use my windows partition more due to driver incompatibilities... Somehow my laptop runs much hotter using Ubuntu than it does with windows... Damn Sony and their proprietaryness...

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:04:25 UTC from StatusNet iPhone
    14. @widget Lol ... ok "th", and "st" are not next to one another... throw the rest on there!!!!!

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:05:33 UTC from web
    15. @widget hmm... Interesting...

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:07:23 UTC from StatusNet iPhone
    16. @widget Ooh, now that's one I've not seen before. Full-qwerty with a strong autocorrect (in the form of Swiftkey X) works well for me, but I'm open to trying mobile-specific keyboards. Just not yet found one that surpasses Swiftkey for convenience. :(

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:09:24 UTC from IdentiCurse
    17. @widget yeah... The only thing that I think could cause something like that would be driver incompatibilities with the fan or the temperature sensors. And how you can have driver incompatibilities with a freakin fan I'll never know. Ima be building a desktop over summer though, and that will be built with Linux compatibility in mind.

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:11:38 UTC from StatusNet iPhone
    18. @widget I don't have problems with the size of Swype's keys. :< And I have sausage fingers too. I don't use the actual swiping feature, though.

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:15:25 UTC from StatusNet Desktop
    19. @widget One can control them through the OS with either their mobo's software or a program like speedfan.

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:16:28 UTC from web
    20. @widget that's what I thought I knew, but my laptop and Sony seem to want to prove me wrong. I call SHENANAGANS! SHENANAGANS I TELL YOU!

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:17:05 UTC from StatusNet iPhone
    21. @widget I've grown used to using the shift key when I need to, though. This keyboard is just awkward for me.

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:21:15 UTC from StatusNet Android
    22. @widget I used it to type that post. It took me four minutes to type ten words.

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:23:43 UTC from web
    23. @widget Haha learning morse code is something I've been meaning to do.

          Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:33:34 UTC from web
    24. @widget I could never understand that one, except that it would be easier to type with one hand. I mean, it's not like anypony can see the morse...

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:28:19 UTC from StatusNet iPhone
    25. @widget oh lol, I was talking about the iPhone jailbreak tweak that my friend was so adamant about... Seriously. someone made a jailbreak tweak for morse code typing.

      Thursday, 19-Apr-12 03:33:13 UTC from StatusNet iPhone
    26. @widget well, its like the google thing where it types real text, so it's probably a bit more complicated than that.
