Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.

1 November 2016

Halt and Catch Fire n’a jamais été un documentaire, mais l’invention d’un Second Life 2D en 1986 ?

RT @zefede: Désolé mais je garderai ¯\(ツ)/¯ à vie [twitter.com]

RT @erikras: A setting we are all really hoping for in iOS11. @dmoren [pic.twitter.com]

Westworld montre un monde futuriste où de riches cadres peuvent passer une semaine de vacances sans toucher à leur smartphone o_O

Scroll back a bit to re-read a line; a 200-pixel header slides down into view and hides the whole paragraph.

Or just a 30-pixel header slides down and hides a single sentence. Still obnoxious.

Wait. Today there’s a “Play Next” option in iTunes’ contextual menu. Did it appear because I dragged stuff into ‘Up Next’ yesterday?

RT @stroughtonsmith: Good @pschiller interview on the new MacBook Pros (and their reception) /via @reneritchie [independent.co.uk]

Wonder if they’re going to actively enforce the very Facebook idea that your avatar should look like you in real life.

Il faut que j’encadre l’intégrale de Halt and Catch Fire et me la repasse à chaque fois que j’oublie ce que c’est de créer quelque chose.

Je subis la fin hyper chiante de Halt and Catch Fire avant de découvrir au dernier moment qu’en fait il va y avoir encore une saison de plus 😩

Gotta wonder what Apple’s AR projects look like.

RT @Freerunnering: This should not ever have existed, and it definitely shouldn’t still exist. [pic.twitter.com]

Je n’avais jamais réalisé que les lens flares des vieux films en cinémascope étaient complètement déformés par l’anamorphose

Dans le film Westworld il y a plusieurs parcs à thèmes/époques différents, ce qui est à la fois beaucoup plus logique et plus intéressant.

4 November

Taking a break from work: 30 minutes of Driveclub VR, one hour feeling iffy. I’m beginning to think VR doesn’t like me.

RT @stroughtonsmith: “Apple smartphone market share drops to 12.1%”

“Apple takes more than 103% of smartphone market profits”

Truly fascinating contrast

If I have a bout of insomnia around the time my iPad’s night shift is scheduled to end, there’s no way to escape the fade to blue light.

RT @ziyatong: This is a just cat playing a theremin.

RT @edelwax: I’d like to rephrase this:

It’s hugely dangerous when designers of humans systems are naive about human systems.


J’ai commencé AHS:Roanoke sans conviction, trop de buzz pour l’ignorer, et là je suis à mi-chemin et je ne peux pas m’arrêter pour bosser 😮

I’d briefly seen tweets mentioning Apple cutting the adapters’ price; can’t believe it’s actually just a limited-time discount.

Dunno why Jackal Assault is free for everyone on PSVR but holy shit the sense of presence is so much stronger than in the Eve Valkyrie demo.

Flip side though is that I’m feeling a bit queasy whereas I could do roll after roll in Valkyrie. So that’s an interesting tradeoff.

5 November

RT @colincornaby: Oh! Also on the Surface Studio the wheel has a suction cup. Which gets dirty. Which means your wheel won’t stick to the screen. Not magnetic

Westworld is entertaining but I don’t understand how people view it as a show to endlessly develop theories around.

Why is the iPhone 7 Plus still doing scaled-down @3x? Speculation for 6 Plus was yield issues but it can’t still be that, two years later?!

Horrifying to imagine their intention may have always been just to align to 1080p resolution. It’s not like they buy screens off-the-shelf, so who cares if the screen size is standard?

6 November

Aussi génial que soit le concept d’AHS:Roanoke, c’est quand même dommage que ça dégénère en torture porn et found footage.

RT @Pravdauk: Someone asked me why I read German History, at the time my answer was one day it might be useful. And that day as arrived. https://t.co/ucw3L8lBl0

Brand new Photoshop shipping with a “New Document” dialog that takes five seconds to load.

Je n’ai encore jamais essayé le Joylent-vodka 😮

7 November

Ah ben forcément que les photos de San Junipero me rappelaient Halt and Catch Fire, ce n’était pas que l’esthétique eighties

Voilà un directeur de casting bien paresseux, même si je ne l’avais pas reconnue consciemment.

RT @zefede: Meilleure vidéo d’animaux de la semaine [instagram.com] (la tête du chat purée) (via @OuPsy)

RT @marcedwards: A bigger, more complete list of external displays suitable for Macs, and their pixel densites. [i.imgur.com]

Curieusement je n’aime pas plus Black Mirror en version Netflix que l’originale.

Bon, ok, je n’avais pas encore vu San Junipero 😭

Mais… les tendons ne bougent pas comme ils devraient, si ? 😧

macOS Mail shows a message as “To: <my address> & 1 more” and the only way I can find to see who else is to reply-all.

I started writing PHP more than 15 years ago and kept so many bad habits from those early days that I should just switch to a new language.

RT @FarshadNayeri: Pro tip: To avoid information anxiety today, treat twitter as a write-only medium, even more so than usual.

9 November

I’d like Andromeda’s premise much better if the arks were seed ships (only carrying DNA) that took 10,000 years to reach their destination.

That would be a proper scifi story, instead of the flimsiest possible excuse to have the exact same shit in another galaxy.

A few months left for someone to finally launch a truly anonymous, temper-resistant, decentralized competitor to Twitter.

RT @jonrog1: Hey, no joke, and I’m paraphrasing smarter people. If you plan on opposing Trump:

Get Tor.

Get Signal.

Get a VPM

2FA on your emails.


Why are iTunes Connect’s financial reports delivered as a zip of .txt.gz files?

10 November

Putain, comme si le passage au found footage ne suffisait pas, American Horror Story se met au casque GoPro 🙄🙄🙄 barf

I’m finding Steep annoying (it’s not my kind of game anyway) but it would be so nice in VR — even keeping the third-person perspective.

So why… exactly… does anyone “play” The Tomorrow Children? I didn’t get it when I played the alpha way back, don’t get it now.

Kubo and the Two Strings est visuellement superbe, et je ne m’attendais pas à ce qu’il soit aussi très drôle.

Alice Through the Looking Glass est une interminable pub de parfum et on ne sait même pas pour quelle marque à la fin.

Le cinéma se limite terriblement, ces temps-ci, en insistant à mélanger prises de vue réelles et synthèse au lieu de recréer simplement les acteurs.

Je ne sais pas si j’ai pris froid ou juste mangé trop de chocolats :/

I’m really close to finally buying a gaming PC so it would be silly to get Dishonored or Watch Dogs right now on PS4, wouldn’t it…

Couldn’t phones reduce battery wear by slow-charging at night and fast-charging only when plugged in mid-day?

I just did the very first wave of Brookhaven. If I ever pick it up again it’ll be while my roommate isn’t sleeping in the room next door 😱

Also started Eagle Flight and… uh. Neither its very artificial controls nor the anti-motion sickness measures do much to help immersion.

I’m curious if they ever tried motion controls because I know I’d feel stupid spreading my arms to play but it would feel so much more real.

For anyone who hasn’t heard about it, this is Brookhaven.

This, in VR.

THANK GOD the visuals are much muddier on PSVR.

J’avais déjà assez de mal à me motiver à bosser sans la certitude que la civilisation occidentale va disparaître dans les quatre ans.

Enjoyed Elder Scrolls Online more than I expected the last two days; now I keep bumping against inventory limit, think I’ll just give up.

I enjoy TESO’s gameplay much more this time around (PS4 instead of PC) but the writing still feels completely perfunctory.

Argh, looks like “get Skyrim Special Edition for free if you have all the DLC” was a limited-time offer and I missed it.

I have yet to find a single game in my Steam library that gives my 1070 the slightest workout in 1080p.

It’s great that I can play Spintires with full visuals, but… I’m considering buying The Division on sale just to have something pretty.

25 November

Look who became a PC master race person in 48 hours. Just bought Witcher 3 on Steam although it was already in my pile of PS4 games to play.

Not sure what to do about Fallout 4, though. I want to finish the story but ugh playing it on PS4 but ugh starting over.

TIS-100 is excellent but I can’t shake the feeling that I’m doing unpaid client work.

I don’t expect it’s gonna get reviews before the end of the current Steam sale, is it?

Oh, apparently it’s out now, so let’s just hope people quickly write many blog posts about the strengths and failings of creative mode.

Because I’d love to think they’re not going to screw it up horribly, but, uh.

I’ve installed ≈40 games on my new PC but I’m still playing Fallout 4 on PS4 because I’m unable to leave a game in the middle of its story.

Replaced faulty USB cable that borked external drive. Then had to reformat the drive on PC before Disk Utility could do anything with it.

Onboarding pro-tip: Don’t open with a gorgeous loading screen that’s going to stutter horribly for several minutes on first launch

I just found two cats in Fallout 4 and I can’t interact with them. Worst game ever.

My Fallout 4 character has a boyfriend now so I guess I can consider I’ve won and drop the game.
