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.

Today in things that are my jam: model spaceships being blown up with internally LED-lit cotton-ball explosions, and fibre-optic sparks. So incredibly cool.

A charity offered me the chance to adopt an elephant. the money goes towards increasing the number of elephants in the wild. thus decreasing the value of my own elephant

Pour se faire dépister, vous avez le choix, des autotests en pharmacie (30€), le laboratoire privé, le test rapide par une assoce ou le centre de dépistage gratuit et anonyme (on les appelle CeGIDD maintenant) : [vih.org] #WorldAIDSDay

@leroncier:

Je sais que ça fait peur, parce qu’on a tou·te·s déconné un jour ou l’autre. Mais c’est pour ça qu’il faut savoir : Savoir, c’est bénéficier d’une prise en charge, c’est s’assurer de garder le maximum de cartouches thérapeutiques dès le début. #WorldAIDSDay

@leroncier:

Au passage, la Prep n’est pas un truc d’inconscient : c’est un truc de personnes qui ont décidé de se prendre en charge, avec des check-up et des dépistages réguliers. Condamner la Prep aujourd’hui, c’est aussi bête que d’être contre le préservatif. #WorldAIDSDay

Turns out bosses do not stay dead in Dead Cells. So I guess I’m done with Dead Cells.

I reflexively installed 11.2 as soon as I saw it was available. What could go wrong. It’s not like they also rushed that update overnight, to fix a bug that was putting thousands of phones in a reboot loop.

Latest macOS update has a “month 13” bug now that it’s December that’ll trash your battery life 🤔 [robservatory.com]

@stroughtonsmith:

I was once told it would have to be a real damn emergency to release an iOS version on a weekend, so, here we are… 😂 iOS 11.2! 🎉

Played a couple minutes of Edge of Nowhere until 🤢 and it’s always funny how different a VR game’s perspective can be to what you expected from the videos.

We can disagree on how much time the devs should have spent on comfort options (there are none) but I don’t think it’s acceptable for a third-person game in VR to let the camera jump up when the character steps on a fucking pebble.

@cgpgrey:

With iOS 11 and the iPhone X there are so many crazy-making inconsistencies across devices it’s a real hindrance to friction-free work.

The most frequently used gesture (swipe up) does three different things depending on the device . Total muscle memory fail.

@ja2ke:

1) The Twin Peaks Season 3 I thought I wanted for 25 years.

2) The Twin Peaks Season 3 I didn’t know I wanted, but did.

Fuck. It just dawned on me that my four-year-old MacBook Pro has been swelling over the last few weeks. (Or much longer if my issues with the trackpad’s button were the first symptom.) It’s awesome because I’m kinda broke right now.

Of course the batteries are glued to the case, why wouldn’t they, so I can’t risk trying to remove them and run the computer off the mains.

@brchastain:

My daughter is 5. I don’t want her to have this, and I don’t want her friends to badger her into getting it. This is expanding the Network Effect of Facebook (& all its concomitant pitfalls) into childhood. It’s gross. [twitter.com]

@goodfellow_ian:

One of my favorite samples from the Progressive GANs paper is this one from the “cat” category. Apparently some of the cat training photos were memes with text. The GAN doesn’t know what text is so it has made up new text-like imagery in the right place for a meme caption.

It’s bad enough that iTunes’ entire album view flashes distractingly every time the track changes — but why on earth does it flash twice.

@mrbenwexler:

THE RIGHT: Yeah he’s a serial child molester but he’ll confirm the guy I want on the Supreme Court

THE LEFT: Yeah she’s good on global warming and tax policy and race relations and expanding healthcare to poor families but I can’t vote for someone who gave paid speeches to Goldm

@juliencdt:

En vrai je vais pas m’autoquoter, mais il faut cesser de dire « GAFA », ça amène à une confusion qui confine a l’absurde et biaise les analyses : croire que 4 entreprises font la même chose et ont les mêmes intérêts commerciaux.

@juliencdt:

En très gros :

Google : vend de la pub et des données.

Apple : vend ses produits cher.

Facebook : vend de la pub et des données sur d’autres canaux.

Amazon : vend les produits des autres.

@stroughtonsmith:

(i.e. an 8-hour MacBook [Pro] starts looking a lot less attractive beside a Windows-on-ARM device with a 24-hour battery & LTE)

@rustyshelf:

I’m trialling a new experimental laptop from Apple. The return of USB-A and SD Card slot is genius. Touch screen and pencil support is surprisingly useful. Touch bar is gone but I won’t miss it. Face ID is 👌

The new logo on the back is an odd step but I could get used to it.

Je viens seulement de me rappeler les heures que j’ai passées, collégien, à regarder des choses comme ça, et des circuits de billes métalliques, au rayon jouets du Printemps.

Je vais redécorer toute ma chambre.

Pokemon: in our new movie pikachu talks

people: thats the stupidest thing I’ve ever h-

Pokemon: he’s ryan reynolds now

people: wha-

Pokemon: pikachu says “fuck”

When I heard “Reigns, but with the queen” I assumed ‘Elizabeth I,’ not ‘the king’s wife.’ Definitely has potential to be more interesting — but I wish they’d done away with the Tinder UI.

@allisongallaghr:

It’s just like that old saying; “Do what you love for a living and the increasingly unclear distinction between your personal and professional identity will make it extremely difficult to feel emotionally secure at basically any point in the process”

@Pentadact:

Holy shit. [youtube.com] via @LillyD_LWS

@decryption:

Check out the crazy origami Ethernet port on this new Fujitsu laptop (yeah they’re back making laptops now)

@sturdyAlex:

In summary: ten years ago bankers gambled with all our money, lost most of it, caused a global financial crisis, which resulted in austerity, that was manipulated into anti-migrant rage by billionaire tax-exile press-barons, revitalised the far right and brought Trump and Brexit.

@sturdyAlex:

Here’s a frightening additional thought: if the financial crisis was the equivalent of the 1929 crash, then we’re now roughly around 1938.

@SilverVVulpes:

so what you are saying is, Century Fox is now Disney

which means the Alien franchise is now Disney

which means Xenomorphs, being born from the Xenomorph Queen, are now Disney princesses [twitter.com]

@Ceilidhann:

I honestly find it pretty troubling how much of the reporting of the Disney-Fox acquisition is just squee over the Marvel possibilities rather than real concern over the insidious nature of a growing media monopoly.

Euro Truck is making me think about the logistics of every single package I’ve ever received and it’s so weird, really. (I do not usually mail-order bulldozers.)

I love this setting and, if anyone can convey the sense of wonder it should inspire, it’s definitely Campo Santo.

It’s funny how we were all a little worried about High Sierra’s switch to APFS and it seems to be the only thing they didn’t screw up. (Talking general OS reliability, not mis-attributed UI fields in Disk Utility.)

@alexhern:

If you weren’t enough of a risk-taker to buy bitcoin at $30, you also aren’t enough of a risk-taker to not have sold it the minute you had multiplied your holdings ten-fold, so don’t beat yourself up over hypotheticals

@Colossal:

We wish every cement truck was a disco cement truck. Is that too much to ask? [thisiscolossal.com]

@TheStalwart:

“Bubbles are mathematically impossible in this new paradigm.” is like a bad parody of the type of thing people say during a bubble. [twitter.com]

@cwbuecheler:

Here’s what I think is happening with @Patreon - this year they raised $60m in Series C venture funds at a valuation of $450 million (after raising $30m last year and more than doubling the company’s size - almost always a mistake). Yet they make about $8 million per year. 1/10

@cwbuecheler:

Most sane company valuations are 10x-20x revenue, with 20x being a high-end for desirable acquihires by Google/etc. Under that math, Patreon should be worth $80-$160 million. Yet they raised at $450m. 56x revenue! This means they’re under intense pressure to increase $$$. 2/10

I got Hue for free with PSN+ a while back and it’s got great puzzle design

I particularly like the balance between levels where you can take your time and the few that rely more on reflexes.

Venice isn’t quite all they say it is

“Apple’s widened ban on templated apps is wiping small businesses from the App Store”

There’s an app for that, they said. And users eagerly forgot about websites, so that if you didn’t have a presence on the App Store you might as well not exist.

My iPhone has become so unresponsive while playing music I think I’m gonna look for an iPod nano to borrow.

OMG Monster Hunter World has customizable kitties (look at the bottom two devils)

After fifteen minutes with the beta, I’m not sure what Monster Hunter is supposed to be but I’m just gonna go ahead and assume it isn’t for me.

I’ll reconsider when Monster Hunter has a photo safari mode. I don’t even understand how they can spend so much time designing and animating all those creatures and not want to offer more peaceful interactions.

「空想ジオラマ」の技術的な話、 #ViveTracker でトラッキングしてるのはいつも通りで、初めは背景真っ白だけど手に取ると車の周りのTerrainに色を付けていく処理が毎フレーム入ってるので、処理が重くなってしまうのだけど、なんとかできないだろうか。

Godot 3 sounds too good to be true

I haven’t looked at the API yet but I really like the fundamental design choices shown here.

« Le ridicule ne tue pas »

Maxime favorite des dictateurs.

According to CPU DasherX (free on the App Store) the 6 Plus I’m using runs at 840MHz, while the 6 whose battery I replaced in February goes a full 1.4GHz 😨

It’s presumably intended as a workaround for devices going from 60% to shutdown in a few minutes after the iOS 10 update, but I’m gonna be hard-pressed for arguments the next time someone cries “planned obsolescence.”

“I’ll play Archangel real quick so I don’t miss out on the free weekend, then I’ll work” was a bad idea. I quit in a hurry as soon as it started moving but I still have a headache.

Seeing the mech’s head and hands mirror my movements during the tutorial was pretty cool, though.

Did I miss something or is there still, 36 hours before release, zero official word on mod support in Fallout VR?

J’avais bêtement oublié que, pour qu’un film de Besson soit si mal reçu, il fallait qu’il soit encore pire que ce à quoi je m’attendais. Si seulement ça avait fait un bide suffisant pour ruiner sa carrière.

@heymermaid:

I can’t find lightning headphones this morning so I’m walking to work playing music on my old 6S. I’ve been forced to invent the iPod. This is the dumbest thing that has ever happened to me

@BMCarbaugh:

Someone tried to film a ren fair with a drone and the result is one of the best gifs I’ve ever seen.

How does a bitcoin crash work if the slightest activity on the market already means transactions take hours to process?

Twitter “introduces” threads

1. Encouraging tweetstorms is bad

2. But hiding them behind a “read more” link is great

3. But god knows what will happen in third-party clients

4. It’s y’all’s fault in perpetuity for rejecting the 10,000-word attachment idea
