Whenever I spend too much time working on layout components, I start to space out.

Retweeted by Mark DalgleishWith so many website designs being updated to feature large border radiuses, I'm finding them much more well rounded. @ohpointybird Sorry, reworded it.It's interesting to note that, as soon as a repo gets popular on GitHub, it suddenly has a lot of clones.I've heard a few people talking about that new Node alternative, but I Deno anything about it. @matiasvj Don't laugh, call an ambulance!At this point, a desk that doesn't let me adjust the height is something I just can't stand for.

@scottmled I think you just invented mobile apps.Lots of designers try to avoid modals, but I don't think they should be so quick to dismiss them. @iTMayzIII I can't tell if this is a compliment or an insult.I have a feeling when @markdalgleish makes a tweet about modals it's going to be over the top

Thought I could figure out how to fix it but it wasn't clear.

I tried to use a graphical UI builder once. It was a bit of a drag so I dropped it.I accidentally let my Egghead membership expire. I guess I didn't re-member.

@markdalgleish Me: **types my code incorrectly** Typescript: *Tsc tsc*
Retweeted by Mark Dalgleish @andy__carrell You could say I've really been un-leished.When writing a library in TypeScript, I have to admit that sometimes the type checking can feel a bit generic.

I want to create some touch interactions using our design system but I'm afraid it'll just be a token gesture.The trouble with hiring web contractors is they come with a lot of markup.

Our industry can be so back-end focused at times, CSS developers really feel the need to justify self.
