A Free Web & Mobile App for Reading Comfortably — Readability »

Speaking of fonts, even if you don’t have issues with reading, Readability is a pretty great app; it’s probably one of the first things I install on a browser after adblock.

It takes the text from whatever page you’re on and converts it into plain text on a plain background; you can toggle between light text on dark or dark text on light. Good if you’re, say, trying to read a blog post that has flashing gif backgrounds or white text on cyan or the type is just too damn tiny and trying to zoom in makes the layout break. I’d recommend the Whitney font since I don’t really like serifs for web reading.

lavandulum:

i’ve stopped trash talking comic sans after learning the font is actually one of the only dyslexia-friendly fonts that come standard with most computers and i advocate for others doing the same

Matter of fact, there’s plenty of fonts with good readability for dyslexic folks, and they’re all default ones that come with any computer:

Rello, Luz & Baeza-Yates, Ricardo (2013). Good Fonts for Dyslexia.
http://www.luzrello.com/Publications_files/assets2013.pdf

Helvetica, Arial, and Verdana are recommended sans serif fonts, while CMU (Computer Modern Unicode) and Courier are also good. Serif and monospace fonts aren’t necessarily harder to read; what you really want to avoid are italics and fancy novelty fonts.

It also states that personal preference also comes into play, which seems obvious, dyslexia doesn’t affect your aesthetic sense.

I’m afraid that this means, nope, it’s still a bad idea to use Comic Sans, particularly not for body text, because it is just an ugly wonky font, period.

I do wonder how well Comic Neue fares with dyslexic readers. though.

As of early 2014, more than 500 people have put down deposits toward the $200,000 cost to travel aboard Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo. 
From sending tourists on space vacations to mining asteroids for profit, the next generation of space entrepreneurs, and not NASA, may be the ones who transform space into our backyard.

Tron: Uprising. Concept Art by Darren Bacon.

Concept artist Darren Bacon has released concepts and background paintings he created for Tron: Uprising, an animated science fiction television series. The series is set between Tron and Tron: Legacy and airs on television channel Disney XD in the United States.

snowskeeper asked, "Quick note about Virginia's hat: there's an in-game reason for that existing. Ditto the Devilish Fedora. The picture was really cool, though. =)"

Thanks, and I figured! Failbetter are usually good about accuracy with the occasional handwave (eg. Hyde Park changing into Jekyll Gardens post-fall, even though the Strange Case was published twenty years after the fall happened), so makes sense for stuff like that to be deliberate.

I imagine it’s not uncommon for people to pick up fashion and slang from the devils, much like how my character is rocking said fedora. (Haters are welcome, fedoras and trilbies were originally womenswear and will remain so when current fashion trends are dust, etc, etc.)

Lettice and Grace.
Nobody seems to know when or how the V-sign-as-insult started in the UK, except that the story about archers in the battle of Agincourt is probably untrue. Still, the deviless Virginia gets to wear a hat from the 1920s, I think the Mercies are allowed to use a potentially anachronistic hand gesture.

I love the charr, because what’s not to love about playing as a giant flamethrower-wielding bomb-throwing battlescholar monstercat, but I have no bloody idea how they work.
(btw if MMOs are your thing, you should know that GW2 is only $25 right now and there’s a big game-changing patch coming this month, so now’s the time to get into it)
