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.
Indiana Jones was more interested in a lump of worked gold than he was in the fact that a pre-modern central american civilization could build a trap that knows when you are standing in front of a shaft of sunlight
Tales from the Loop 1x02 —
I was afraid this show was gonna be a retread of Stranger Things. Now I wish it were 😴︎

Is the idea that this takes place in our world, and this is just a peculiar area hidden out somewhere? It doesn’t make sense to me, and I don’t think that’s what the original art implied.
Besides that, this first episode thinks so highly of its artistic direction that it isn’t making much of an effort to captivate me, and the children’s dialogue is pretty clunky.
Personal iOS paper cut: Links in the notes app activate even in edit mode, and have a touch target that includes the lines above and below the actual link making them incredibly awkward to handle.
search is fine for open-ended unknown data sets: oh, I wonder if there’s an article on <thing> -> search -> great
for things I own, which I know exist, and have a mental model of, it is garbage
a lot of software has gravitated to this model where you just search for things, and I cannot get across just how much that does not fit my brain
to me, search is where information goes to die
I’m one of those people that manages their tools and tasks essentially by remembering where things are, physically and spatially, and the way a lot of software is design actively fights against that
My resin printer just spent two hours trying to print a figurine with the bed flying ten inches above the resin vat, while I was busy doing something else. I fucking hate this hobby.
I’ve spent the past two days looking into replacing my cheap shitty starter of a 3D printer and I have a serious case of choice paralysis. Do I care more about large build volume or the possibility of an official dual-filament add-on? Why can’t I have both. For like $300. Please.
At $90 it’s just expensive enough that I don’t want to buy it and test for myself, but there are people whose whole job it is to play with such things and film the process.
I get that most people aren’t as excited about dual-filament printing as I am but, well, that’s just a failure of imagination.
During video calls, our bodies feel that the other person is not present but the eyes & ears tell a different story - they deny the absence. This conflict is unconscious but we often feel tired.
Hardware issues aside, this is partly why some describe VR as vaguely uncomfortable. [twitter.com]

How did something so stupid even start?! I can’t believe social media is throwing us back into the Dark Ages 😭
La série Devs est captivante et superbe, forcément, parce que Alex Garland, mais même si ce n’était pas le cas elle vaudrait le coup rien que pour les scènes d’Alison Pill.
J’hésitais depuis un mois à acheter une machine à coudre pour faire d’hypothétiques… costumes, et je viens seulement de réaliser que je pourrais refaire les housses des meubles du salon moi-même. Il y en a pour 700 € minimum, ça me fait de quoi payer une sacrée machine.
Imagine a squirrel making a nest at your window and being able to watch them sleep and grow 🥺
Goddammit, why are PSN+ games not aligned on the calendar, and why do they announce them a week early? No one’s gonna post a new article next week when Uncharted 4 is actually available, and I refuse to clutter my calendar or inbox with a reminder.

Color Out of Space (2020) —
It made me want to watch Annihilation again, so at least that’s good. (Is that good? For anyone’s sanity, to watch Annihilation again?)

The ABC Murders (2018) —
I wasn’t in the mood for hostile, incompetents cops — but even without that factor there was plenty for me to dislike.
Frostpunk’s final timelapse of the player’s entire playthrough is a lovely cherry on top of an excellently designed game.
i’ve doubted my own depression for years but after a couple weeks of seeing people churn out quirky quarantine content and having themed facetime parties, im shaken at how much serotonin some of you fuckers have
Frostpunk (PC) —
It’s not often I reach the end of a city management game. Well, for one thing, city management games don’t usually have endings — but the addition of a meaty narrative is exactly what kept involved until the end.

J’ai fait des insomnies toute la nuit en prévision de sortir faire des courses ce matin. On plaisante sur ce qu’on va faire à la fin du confinement, mais je sens qu’il va y en avoir pas mal qui vont en ressortir agoraphobes, surtout.
Message d’un vétérinaire de ma région. Je n’aurais jamais pensé lire ça un jour.
Il demande aux gens d’arrêter de laver leurs chats ou leurs chiens avec du gel hydroalcoolique, du détergent ou du désinfectant… Il a des animaux qui arrivent brûlés et/ou intoxiqués. 😤🤦🏼♀️

Me: Hm rather than pay for more iCloud Drive space, I’d like to turn off iCloud Drive sync. I can back up those local files myself elsewhere.
Apple: The only option is to remove your local files and keep them in iCloud Drive. Enjoy Googling ways to deal with this. Happy Sunday!
It’s interesting that VR players who use joystick locomotion end up using room-scale movements much less often. Watching people play HLA with joystick; where I would have just taken a step forward, people are doing lots of micro movements to adjust their position.
