pinephone keyboard 

also the phone vibrates essentially all the time

boot? vibrate

touch a key on the software keyboard? vibrate

it's also not configurable as far as we can tell, so that's... fun

pinephone keyboard 

this was with plasma mobile, maybe phosh is better

but we managed to crash the panel (so no more home button, no more app launching, no more anything except looking at the background image)

and the font picker is still not scalable (the only way to exit it is to cancel it by closing the window, or using the enter key on the keyboard case to accept)

as for software

wow

it's still rather shitty, a year later

the top row is jank, apparently can be fixed with paper or 3d printed shims

the keyboard itself isn't detected unless you make sure the area around the pogo pins properly clicks in

oh dear oh my oh dear

at least she's... trying to be helpful? we just don't know what *goals* the helpful is working towards

she fixed kokoro's fading tangibility though

i really do think animations can be used tastefully, but the default animations in practically anything are super overblown

LB:
i feel like desktop animations are almost always unnecessary and just end up slowing things down for little gain (that "little" is it can obfuscate latency from elsewhere in the pipeline, so if you're annoyed at latency but don't mind animations then everything is fine)

however i think *some* phone animations are good

mostly it's just the swiping ones, if i swipe back and it just blinked back to the previous page that's a bit disorienting, so it's better to have a short slidethrough anim

does anybody actually like animations in GUIs? I feel like it's a pretty common neurodivergent thing to find them overwhelming, but like...they also make everything feel really fucking slow

they're good for a first impression, I always think things look really slick when they're well done. But the more I use it, the more it feels like I spend half my time watching it do dances for me

worm opinion 

fic authors: "oh she's soooo tall at 5'8"!"

us: "cowards."

a requirement to have a good worm fic is acknowledging that taylor is 6ft tall
