Grumpy Website


in macOS you can share the contents of your Desktop between all the computers you use through iCloud. It’s a matter of checking a single checkbox.

What a great idea, I thought! Before I realize that now every time I try to move files from a Desktop it bugs me with a popup every time. It’s like it took your files hostage and don’t really like letting them go.

Strangely enough, it’s perfectly fine to delete file, no popup in that case.

Move == non-destructive == alert and confirmation

Delete == destructive == no alert

General rule is that confirmations are bad. If you catch yourself adding one, stop and think again
