also, never make the checkbox caption change depending on whether the checkbox is checked or not

Seminonobvious design tip: never ever ever use negative checkboxes. This is because the label accompanying a checkbox is a question that is answered by the checkbox, and negative questions in English are an ambiguous clusterfuck.

let me walk y'all through this derivation, because I love this story. this kid was, to my knowledge, the child of English speakers, neither with language deficits. idiopathically, the kid acquired an insanely-small phoneme inventory, described by the SLP as 'practically Hawai'ian.'

one (1) fricative, /h/ (English has eight others).
instead of /k/, this kid has a glottal stop.
no /ɹ/. lots of kids struggle with R, this isn't that weird.

kid says 'I'm,' no problem. kid tries to say 'fast,' but no /f/. kid subs /b/, presumably because voicing a consonant is a lenition rule and so is replacing it with a fricative. no /s/, and a consonant cluster at the end of a syllable is a no-go (also a common problem for younger speakers. we're left with /bæ/.

kid tries to say 'walker,' MOSTLY gets there — but no /k/, so a glottal stop, and no /ɹ/. /wɔ.ʔə/

I'm a fast walker —> "I'm a [bæ wɔ.ʔə]"

Something interesting:
The way someone pronounces `varchar` seems to depend entirely on how they pronounce `char`; every single person I've met uses the same vowel in both syllables: either "vairkair" or "vahrchahr".

Gonna be working on Banzai Run today. This game's pretty unique in that it has two playfields, one almost vertical - furthermore, the same ball moves between the horizontal and vertical playfields via a moving magnet. Boards and harnesses are located behind the vertical playfield, which makes them a PITA to get to. Pictures show the game in various stages of disassembly.

Probably gonna be in it allllll day.

I own a lot of weird shit
But this is probably the rarest game I own
I got this by signing up to some strange limited beta program for a new disk format back in 2011

I don't think many people were selected

You open up a suitcase and it's full of hats and broken shards of plastic.
