Hey typography geeks!

What's your thought on spaces around em dashes?

I've always been of the opinion that em dashes shouldn't have spaces around them.

However, recently I've noticed that this doesn't work all that well in monospaced fonts (where em dashes, "—", are frequently not any longer than en dashes, '–").

And, many times (e.g., email) I don't know what font will be used. So I'm thinking about adding spaces as a general practice.

Thoughts?

Anyone know how to bypass space to dash conversion in Discord channel names? The double thin space trick doesn't work anymore in the API.

It seems that macOS has become very locked down lately. They moved a bunch of config files to a read-only partition.

Huh macOS is really nice. I rebooted from Bootcamp and now I kind of want to stay.

I never know how much to spend on concert tickets.

If I get better seats, will I feel more pressure to enjoy it, and then enjoy it less?

opennic.org seems pretty cool. Doesn't seem like there's much on there though :(

Just a pretty picture of my board with some RPi hats on it. All the lights made it too shiny to avoid picture taking

2009 Apple: We have created a new OS for your phone and a new concept of Apps that are perfectly integrated and carefully designed for your iPhone's touchscreen interface.

2019 Apple: Just shove the iPhone apps onto people's computers, where they have to use a mouse and keyboard. I dunno. Put it in a window or something. Nobody cares.

@aadil yeah this is so annoying. Privacy is not a binary thing, and the most important thing isn't targeted surveillance but mass surveillance: making it hard to do surveillance on a massive scale is not too hard and everyone should put at least some effort into it.
