Video games are very present in kids’ lives these days yet most parents are still pretty much clueless on how to navigate the options out there. If you’re a parent (or family member) that does not play games, you might fall in the trap of offering your kid a discount copy of Grand Theft Auto V. Don’t do that.
Smart, thoughtful, artistic gaming options that will make your kiddo super-happy are out there, ready to be fired up and explored.
We could greatly improve the quality of comments on news websites by enabling them only once the minimum time to read the article had passed. You can’t comment if you just read the title of an article. That’s closer to spam.
Ontem percebi porque é que os gradientes entraram em tanta força no design: por do sol / fim de dia. É um gradiente perfeito e lindo. Tal como o azul do céu entrou no (web) design por ser algo calmo, familiar, orgânico, elementar, também os gradientes nos devolvem a locais de prazer, calma e familiaridade.

Discovered this record label today.
Yesterday we had a general failure across our web real-estate.
Since no one seems to be discussing this, I’m writing it down. Also because I learned a couple of things during the diagnosis (partnering with team-mate Diogo Silva).
Here are some of the TIL.
This error keeps coming back on your Ubuntu start-up?
No worries, you’re not alone. Fortunately there’s an easy fix.
This deadlock needs breaking. I’m looking at you Adobe.
Many creative people haven’t switched from Windows to macOS because Adobe’s creative suite is not available on Linux. If Adobe would decide to start developing for Linux that would probably unlock this deadlock and Linux’s share would see an immediate bump.
Portugal is debating a law that will curtail the presence of Uber (et al.) in the country, effectively imposing some stricter rules than those in place today. Some of the new measures include the need for drivers to follow a 30h course, have mandatory insurance and carry a tag visible from the outside. Regular taxis will be the only ones allowed to stop if someone hails, use the public taxi squares and ride the bus lanes.
Much has been said in defense of Uber and against taxi drivers. I live in Lisbon and must have hailed / called for 50+ taxis during my sejour. 95% percent of the times I had a friendly / anecdotal chat with the driver, was delivered in via the shortest / fastest route and paid a really low price for the service (taxis in the Portuguese capital are remarkably cheap).

Because I am constantly exploring the vast and fascinating world of video games, I tend to get asked what games do I recommend that aren’t the basic, middle-of-the-road shoot’em ups. First person fancy-graphics kill-frenzy frag extravaganzas. Regular folks value the magic and the potential of virtual worlds and celebratory interactions, but are at loss of where to head.
I step forth and scribble down some of my humble suggestions.
