Bienvenue ! Vous vous rappelez les blogs ? A une époque, ce site en était un. Maintenant, c’est surtout une archive de mes multiples comptes Twitter.
I’m so glad we let tech platforms eat the journalism industry.
Now, I can sit and watch a live stream of Notre Dame burning while YouTube’s fake news widget tells me about 9/11 for some reason.
Finally looked at why my transactional emails’ attachment icons didn’t show up on Mac. Started suspecting I was doing something wrong when I couldn’t find any complaints on Google.
Turns out Mail messes up a bit if you put your message inside a <table height=100%>.
It’s wild that Twitter is quite swift at taking down tweets that offend big media copyright holders even from verified entities but death threats to @IlhanMN sit untouched for weeks.
Never forget that addressing abuse isn’t a hard problem, it’s just one they don’t care about.
If ants summoned humans like humans summon Cthulhu.

Tech enthusiasts: My entire house is smart.
Tech workers: The only piece of technology in my house is a printer and I keep a gun next to it so I can shoot it if it makes a noise I don’t recognize.
—and I haven’t even managed to completely solve the tracking issues with the Touch controllers yet (although I’ve improved it by… pulling on the battery springs with pliers so they’d get more tension again).
2002 🆚 2018
How watching Tiger has changed post-smartphone.
iTunes is not going anywhere—not for many, many years. It will remain the only way to organize local libraries and sync devices, because Apple considers local libraries and local sync as deprecated.
Rescued Leopard Loves Head Scritches
Battery falling down a hole
Bandersnatch didn’t end in a very interesting place, but I enjoyed its metaness more than what I expected from the reactions around here. It’s not like Netflix invented the non-choice in an adventure game, but they made good use of it.
At a friend’s for the weekend; I was going to watch Netflix but the auto-playing trailers sent me into a UX rage spiral. The lack of a setting to disable them is so user-hostile it makes me want to torrent all of their original shows, on principle.
Started AC:Odyssey on a friend’s PS4. Picked Alexios. As soon as he opened his mouth I wanted to change, but I can’t be bothered to play the Leonidas prologue again — so that’s the game sorted, then. (I was never very motivated. Greece doesn’t hold a candle to Egypt.)
Comment réagir lorsqu’on se fait call out:
- calme toi, ça ne veut pas dire que tu es une horrible personne mais que tu as fait/dit une connerie
- écoute, n’interromp pas ou n’essaie pas de te défendre. Concentre toi pour essayer de comprendre où tu as merdé.
There should be a hotline you can call where you can safely pronounce words you’ve only ever read out loud for the first time, and they say “oh sweetie” and kindly explain how it’s pronounced.
Played some no-arrows Beat Saber for a change (they’ve updated the game while the mod installer is down, so no custom songs) and damn I’d forgotten how intense that was. I’ve gotten rusty.
Also it was easier when the springs in my controllers’ battery compartments were younger.
Have people already pointed out that Marzipan, by introducing desktop paradigms into the codebases of many iOS apps, would make it pretty easy for Apple to introduce an impressively functional version of this in 2020?
I started listening to a story about the Valley of the Kings and immediately became depressed remembering that AC:Origins’ world doesn’t exist in a VR-explorable version.
I’ve been very impressed by what I saw of the P30 Pro. I mostly use my iPhone for Twitter and Instagram, so I’d actually consider switching if any of my favorite photo editing apps were on Android.
