Il y aurait toujours de nombreuses semaines d’armée et cela ne changerait donc pas grand-chose du point de vue militaire, surtout quand on connaît l’inutilité de certains de ces cours de répétition.

This is a fun experiment to change the style of negatives comments.
“It’s meant to change the tone of the negativity to make it sound like a clown is yelling at a kid’s birthday party.”
Accessibility isn’t a technological problem to be solved. It’s an essential part of the human condition: we all have different needs and abilities.
Some ninja tricks how to build algorithmic layout design
I was on a hunt for a quality handwriting variable font. ETC Grandmaster was the only one I found but is very interesting and well designed.

When Panic, one of my favorite software companies, and Teenage Engineering, one of my favorite design/synth companies, come together to make a game console, it can only be something special.
