Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
C’est mignon le Parlement européen qui condamne la violence de la police française trois mois avant de basculer à l’extrême-droite 😔
Tweetbot doesn’t get Like notifications anymore so I enabled them in the Twitter app. Of course they don’t include @ handles because Twitter hates them, but tapping the notification brings you to… a view of your tweet. Because yeah that’s fucking useful.
Ironically I feel like the game’s biggest flaw is embracing the technology to add rewind and fast-forward buttons. Makes it too tempting to keep rewinding in order to see everything at once, and that turns watching the action into a chore.
The Invisible Hours delivers on the promise of immersive theater in VR with a fun story and great design and implementation. I hope the next generation gets better performance capture; then we’ll really have an awesome new form of storytelling.
Moi, lorsque j’invite des amis à la maison, je dis: “Tout mon foyer fiscal se réjouit de vous voir, surtout la demi-part”🙄. Après vous faîtes comme vous voulez (et puis bon, des romans basés sur le langage administratif ça peut être une niche encore non explorée #grosdoutes ) [twitter.com]
So far the best color I get out of #mechflower is a rainbow. It creates this incredible ambient light all over the room. Thank you @adafruit for these magnificent NeoPixels!
It’s done! Mechanical tulip as a present for my wife. When caressed it blooms into various colors. And will never fade. #freeform #jewelry #arduino
Apple was the best in the industry at easy upgrades/replacements/repairs when they cared about easy upgrades/replacements/repairs.
I don’t usually tweet about that sort of thing because whatever western civilization will be dead within ten years anyway and most of us with it, but the enormity of laying off 800 people right as they announce record financials is giving me existential vertigo.
me: guillotines are things
“We’ve never made more money in our history as a company, which is why it’s time for mass layoffs and restructuring” sure lays bare the moral bankruptcy inherent to capitalism
With a name like this I expected Wreckfest to be a novelty game with okay physics. Turns out it’s perfectly polished, full-featured, and its driving model is the most fun I’ve had in a while. I should have bought this instead of Horizon 4 last fall.
Oh no I’ve been away for Twitter for three months and now I did a dangling modifier I might just as well shut down my account in shame.

Of course my year-old AirPods can also hardly (bloop) get through that train ride but that’s (bloop) much less surpri
My iPhone 7 Plus with a brand new battery can hardly get through a three-hour train ride through the no-service countryside and I have this nagging feeling it didn’t use to be quite so bad a few years ago, even though the phone batteries were mich smaller.
Genie: You get one wish.
Me: I wish for mor–
Genie: No wishing for more wishes.
Me: I wish for more genies.
Genie: Holy shit.
All the new genies: Holy shit.
Scrolling down to the comments there is some clarification on what was going on. Apparently the old limit was 3600°/second… that’s 10 whole revolutions in one second. 🤔 Also, “light enough controller”, is this something else than a Vive wand? I know Knuckles feel lighter to me.
The latest @SteamVR Beta update. OK, thanks Steam! 👌👌👌😅
I was thinking about changing my Twitter handle again and my brain visualized opening the “New Tweet” window and typing /nick…

Quern – Undying Thoughts (PC) —
A lot of good work went into this puzzle game, but there are also serious UX issues — both in the interface (for starters, half the bindings don’t work on my controller so I’m forced to use the mouse) and in the puzzle design. Far too much busy work for too little payoff.
That’s what the series of The Room games nailed like no other: it was properly satisfying to see gears turn, machinery activate, new rooms appear, as you solved each puzzle.
This piece of art from Thomas Deininger is one of the most incredible things I’ve seen.
In case you missed the point, this is why we regulate banks! (TLDR: crypto exchange founder dies suddenly, customer base locked out of $137M-worth of BitCoins held on encrypted laptop with no recovery plan/fallback option because this “bank” was basically 30yo dude with laptop.) [twitter.com]
Recently dawned on me that, while it only recently became painful, I’ve had warning signs of carpal tunnel syndrome in my left wrists for months, if not more. And the only asymmetry between my wrists is that I wore my Apple Watch on the left arm — possibly way too tight 🤔
