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.
Given the rise of #MeToo, I want to say something about a comedy show I saw this weekend and rape culture in comedy.
My life has gotten easier since I realized that if I’m not sure which decision to make, it probably doesn’t matter which I choose.
This tweet brought to you by the Instagram messages I miss because I’ve had to disable sounds for the ‘Like’ notifications.
(This one looks particularly beautiful)
Le soleil est trop bas pour profiter du beau temps. Vivement que les pays riches envahissent les tropiques à cause de la fonte des glaces.
“It’s still an open question whether people will accept self-driving cars.” Huh? Oh, yeah, sometimes I forget I live in a tech bubble.
Halt and Catch Fire was never the show I wanted it to be but I’ll miss these characters. I mean, just Cameron, really.
here is a rabbit playing in leaves to brighten your day
a short history of traffic engineering
Dear @biz: This is the platform you created. Nazis are coming here because they know you allow them. What are you going to do about it?
I want to get a tattoo that says “Strength,” just so I can say “It means strength in English.”
L’interface de configuration des brushes de Photoshop est devenue complètement imbitable pendant que je ne m’en servais plus, non ?
Paperclips is pretty clever (though its supply-and-demand math mystifies me) but it’s absolutely obnoxious as an “idle game” that never gives your brain a rest.
This was @twitter’s response when I reported a guy who tweeted 34 consecutive violent death threats #WomenBoycottTwitter
Until 1935, Disney had the monopoly on technicolor. Other studios, like Fleischer and Iwerks, settled for a two-color system.
After playing Scanner Sombre in VR — and that being one of my best VR experiences — it feels so wrong to play a walking sim on flat screen.
Did a bit of spring cleaning in my Steam backlog; I really need to stop buying crap just because it’s on sale and somehow has okay reviews.
Remember when Apple killed backward compatibility of apps with a new OS and then made it impossible to revert to the old OS? Good Times!
Funny how package delivery is so obviously, universally, acceptedly terrible that it’s the only service which never asks users for a rating.
Hier on moquait Rousseau et Angot, ce matin Cantat est en couv, maintenant on accuse les femmes agressées par Weinstein de s’être tues.
I shouldn’t have posted that before the update was over. It failed, of course, and I’m now in 640×480.
Weinstein is addicted to abusing women, to humiliating women, to violating women. Weinstein is addicted to power and his ability to abuse it
ME: dies in battle
CAPTAIN: We must keep fighting, or Matthew’s death will be in vain.
GHOST OF ME: Actually, that’s the Sunk Cost Fallacy.
“Nan mais ça va vachement mieux. Arrêtez de crier en permanence à l’homophobie !”
There may not be so much of a value-add to a Second Life-style universe in VR, when game engines and platform frameworks provide everything a developer needs to quickly make a social app.
Uh oh, Sansar et al. are spending a lot of time and money trying to build a metaverse while Disney can whip out its own full-fledged social app for Coco instead of building a level in someone else’s world.
I refuse to believe that Medium and Quill artists live in a world where anyone cares what dregs are published on their Facebook feed.
Facebook offers a billion dollars for your company. The cash enables you to flood the world with your product, but Zuckerberg and other Facebook people and products will take up half the air time of every future keynote. Tough choice.
Didn’t know, and kind of amazed, that Gear VR includes streaming. Rendering VR plus encoding video plus uploading it. In a phone.
Interesting that the new Oculus controllers switch to trackpads. I always thought Touch’s joysticks were an asset compared to Vive.
Phonebox forest, Germany.
I really think Apple lit a privacy fire under everyone’s feet and the Google of two years ago would have answered “eh no big deal.”
At least Google’s reaction was appropriately diligent.
UK public not happy with posters- 2.5 million printed. London Times calls them “insipid & patronising invocations”, waste of money & paper.
British Ministry of Information have scrapped series of three propaganda posters “plastered” across UK after public criticism for blandness.

Today marks the third time one of my iPhones has vibrated itself out of alignment with its wireless charging pad over night.
The problem is actually easy to fix: instead of asking for the password directly, iOS should tell the user to open the settings app
I’ve discovered this year some fantastic indie point-and-clicks. All I’d ever really known was the obnoxious frustration of LucasArts games.

Obsessed with this 😍 Baby dolphins fascinated by squirrels.
This it’s what the leap into adulthood is really like…
Every so often my timeline includes a tweet from someone who has blocked me. I’m telling you, Twitter must be genuinely malevolent.
After a cement truck crash in Oklahoma, a resident spent an afternoon making the abandoned mixer look like a crashed NASA capsule.
7 October, 1997: ‘The Velvet Rope’ is released in all it’s twisted elegance
Inktober: all your artist friends flood your TL with beautiful new pieces every day
NaNoWriMo: all your writer friends go radio silent for a month and post cryptically about wanting to die
I wouldn’t want to overreact just because I have lost access to constructed written thought after two tantalizing weeks, but hear me out:
Louie, Mastiff mix (5), New York, NY • “He’s a very well mannered rescue who goes from one soft surface to another. The bed or the couch.”
GRRM ne cache même pas que ça a inspiré Game of Thrones — au point qu’on se demande si ça ne spoile pas qui va finir sur le Trône de fer.
Je regarde I, Claudius et ça n’a pas super bien vieilli (télé publique de 1976 !) mais ça reste excellent. Et carrément moderne.
Ted Danson’s character in The Good Place (really great show) on frozen yogurt:
Cube’s Comic Tips:
Please don’t do this to me
Now that iOS 11 has made the keyboard unbearably laggy in Facebook Messenger, what’s the best cross-platform (PC/Mac/iPhone/iPad) chat app?
Oh yay l’ouverture de chaque fenêtre diminue de genre 10 cm, vraiment quelle joie ce ravalement. Mais qui sont les blaireaux de copropriétaires qui votent pour des conneries pareilles ?
Gameplay prototype for DmC based on the art direction (crumbling, floating architecture) Tried to incorperate this into gameplay #Blocktober
I don’t think anything prevents a third-party app from providing the same kind of real-time translation, but it would look really good for the iPhone to offer that functionality out of the box, too. (If Apple can find the right company to buy.)
Real time translation with the Google Pixel Buds headphones. OK, that is super cool and I have nothing snarky to say about.
Isn’t this the first keynote where Google repeatedly makes a point of having the AI run, and the data remain, on-device? Thanks, Apple!
Google’s giving free unlimited Google Photos storage to Pixel 2 users…time to step up, Apple.
Come to think of it, why doesn’t every camera handle low-light situations by taking a lot of short exposures and aligning them together, instead of a single, blurry long exposure?
Damn, the Google Assistant stylus is a genius concept. I don’t think even the legendary Microsoft Courier thought of that.
Now that Amazon’s putting cameras in all its Echos, the idea of having Google mics all over your apartment feels so much more mundane.
The look of Las Vegas in “Blade Runner 2049” was inspired by photographs of the 2009 Australian dust storm.
Eye twitches are the next frontier.
All drag-and-drop on iPad means to me is stuff randomly popping out when I slowly scroll through my feed or an article. Wish there was a global setting to turn it off.
Found out today there’s an almost-A4 wireless graphics tablet from Huion selling for 100€ on Amazon and it’s actually getting good reviews and my brain has been stuck on “new toy want want want” for an hour now.
You have to go back to 2013 to find an iPhone that’s as slow as a Google Pixel on the JS benchmark. The 5S scores 53 on the JetStream 😱

The talent displayed by everyone on Inktober is depressing… I’m gonna do Drinktober instead.
5) The National Anthem at sports games will be used as a memorial and any athlete who doesn’t participate will be shamed as anti-American
Though to be honest I haven’t even had the courage to give Elite in VR a fair shake yet. (I’m gonna need to spend an hour first programming the Steam controller, since default pad controls are terrible. I’m dorky enough to own a wheel but don’t have room or budget for a HOTAS.)
Started looking for videos of hostile Thargoid encounters and immediately felt the pull of the cockpit view and that music and oh hell no I’m not falling for that again — closed the window.
I find it infinitely depressing that in 2017 even Star Trek stars morally ambiguous characters sniping obnoxiously at each other.
This still of Harrison Ford accidentally punching Ryan Gosling for real during a Blade Runner 2049 scene is amazing.
The key result: Because speech can be used to suppress other speech, the speech maximum is not the zero-regulation point.
