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.
Power went out. It never occurred to me before but I went to my laptop’s wifi menu to enable tethering and, oh, that’s a real good test of whether the power’s out in the whole building.
Je suis pédé, anti-fasciste, et plus que jamais solidaire avec les musulman-es, en particulier les femmes voilées, contre cette énième explosion de haine sexiste et islamophobe.
But there are no graphics settings that I could see and immersion suffered from my 1070 skipping a lot of frames during heavily animated scenes.
Une consultation chez le médecin ou le dentiste est moins chère qu’une coupe chez le coiffeur. Une infirmière à domicile est rémunérée l’équivalent d’un Happy meal par patient. Une séance de kiné est facturée l’équivalent d’un ticket de cinéma. Continuez de mépriser vos soignants
subtweet to writers of tv programs about supernatural phenomena: learn the correct singular and plural forms of the word “phenomena”
Donc je résume 🙃🙃🙃
- Des supporters racistes font des cris de singe, on débat du racisme anti blanc.
- Un élu islamophobe humilie une mère de famille, on débat du voile.
L’extrême droite continue d’imposer son agenda.
The Programmers’ Credo: we do these things not because they are easy, but because we thought they were going to be easy
Money can’t buy you happiness
Inmost is very good (except for the end, where they gave up on making a game) but it’s really fucking dark, making it an odd choice for Apple Arcade, a service many parents will consider as a cheap baby-sitter and on which they’ll give their children free rein.
Also, can we assume that only users configured in the Mainland China region are having their data sent to Tencent? That warning is pretty damn broad.
I remember when I discovered Fusion 360 and fell in love with its promise. Two years later, they haven’t improved on any of the UI’s pain points and I hate it. But I need it, because it’s the only 3D modeling workflow I can wrap my head around, and I can’t afford Rhino.
Hier je me suis préparé un filtre photo noir et blanc pour les tristes mois d’hiver. Aujourd’hui il fait 25° 🤨︎
Seeing her up-close in VR — and very well recreated — might be the first time I’ve understood the fascination with her eyes and smile. (I’m incapable of “entering” a painting by my own means.)
The writing, sharp, funny, acerbic and sometimes delightfully vulgar; the visuals; the voice acting; the songs; the songs! the songs are incredible.
I could pair a gamepad to my iPad, but then the 11” screen would be much farther away from me than I like. Yet it’d be weird buying on Steam a game I got ‘for free’ with Apple Arcade.
As much as I’ve hated the very idea of portrait mode, I must admit that these test shots all look really good.
My university just announced that it’s dumping Blackboard, and there was much rejoicing. Why is Blackboard universally reviled? There’s a standard story of why “enterprise software” sucks. If you’ll bear with me, I think this is best appreciated by talking about… baby clothes!
Le suprémacisme blanc tue, encore et encore. Ce n’est pas la seule idéologie à provoquer des attentats meurtriers ces dernières années. Mais c’est la seule à se voir accorder la possibilité de développer son discours sur toutes les plateformes, y compris la télévision, sans souci
I just love that Apple Pay now fails half the time on my iPhone because Apple didn’t bother to test on non-Face ID phones beyond “yup it runs.”
Remember: A billionaire is just a billion dollars that has taken possession of a human body and is using it for purposes of murder.
It’s wild to me that there aren’t more non-local reporters working on the PGE story — this is a perfect example of the future. Climate change + privatization & capitalism = millions of people without power, likely leading to serious danger to the most marginalized folks.
The Great C (PC) —
The random jump cuts in Comfort mode are really distracting — but even the beautiful slow pans in Cinematic mode are a really bad use of VR. If you want to make a movie, make a movie.
Apple could have engineered their way out of this conundrum, the same way they engineered their way out of being liable for sharing private user data. Embracing some kind of user-facing side-loading solution would diminish the impact of Apple’s own authoritative power over users. [twitter.com]
• Is the cause of the mass extinction event we’re currently experiencing, and that 95% of people are completely unaware of or outright deny.
• naturally occurring, yet has a scent incomparable to any other natural substance
• pitch black liquid
• kills anything it touches
• using it to make anything kills everything it DOESN’T touch, but very slowly
• inexplicably addictive to the money-poisoned
Fairly certain that crude oil is a genuine eldritch horror.
• lied in wait in the Earth’s crust for literally millions of years
• made from the dead bodies of creatures nobody in recorded history has ever seen alive
• almost immediately granted us advanced technology
Like, to such a degree that when I was in school for writing they would give us a guide list of things that were and weren’t allowed in movies in China so we could write treatments that could be saleable there and therefore allow us to survive financially as movie writers
The good side of Google’s obsession with usage metrics: a bunch of useful stats you can whip out at your next UI design meeting.
There hasn’t been much buzz about the single-player campaign of Red Dead Redemption 2. Should I just wait until it’s finally half-price in a 2022 Steam sale if I don’t intend to spend much time in the online mode?
I just happened upon a Half-Life 2 screenshot and suddenly realized why playing with an iPhone 11’s ultra-wide camera in the store felt so trippy: with the fisheye distortion magicked away in post-processing, the phone turns reality into a first-person game.
But how on earth do you decide to make a worldwide announcement for a release next year with just “it has an SSD and new controllers”?
