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.

@AntonHand:

Weird thought: Is there any way to know if any given online game has a crypto miner embedded in it?

@atlasobscura:

No matter the weather, the default temperature for drinking water in China is lukewarm to hot. But it may not stay this way [trib.al]

@AmeliasBrain:

I want to live in the world where this is the real reason for web browser’s convoluted user-agent strings.

“Dearest server, I am Chrome, the 64th of that name, child of WebKit, grandchild of KHTML, a disciple of Gecko, follower of the great Mozilla/5.0, running on Windows NT 10” [twitter.com]

@Gabriel__Lewis:

So I signed up for 2 factor auth on Facebook and they used it as an opportunity to spam me notifications. Then they posted my replies on my wall. 🤦‍♂️

@OHnoTypeCo:

EVERYBODY FALL IN LINE!

@michelmcbride:

This is a map from Marathon called 5-D Space. All of those overlapping corridors exist on the same plane, and there are no scripting tricks to toggle the intersections—the renderer just makes it work. This is the only thing that makes me want to write a 3D engine from scratch

@PaulMMCooper:

How ruins would look if they were built under Martian gravity.

Chesley Bonestell, 1956.

I’ve gotten somewhat used to “countdown” instead of “count down,” and you could argue it’s just a sentence fragment — but “when will the sunset,” seriously?!

@TiagoSansH:

Qu’on soit bien clair : le #Servicenationaluniversel c’est une mesure populiste de droite pour plaire à ton oncle pour qui les jeunes ne sont bons à rien et devraient “faire un tour à l’armée pour respecter l’autorité”. C’est coûteux, inutile, et une régression absolue.

You can’t mute visual memes, but thankfully this one is still text-based

@SashaLaundy:

Honestly, why don’t we reverse the fields? Write your message, THEN sum it up with a terse and helpful subject line, THEN add the right people to the message.

Do any mail clients do this? [twitter.com]

I wonder what’s the acoustic advantage of pointing the tweeters down when it means the sound quality is gonna be so dependent on what kind of surface you place the speaker on.

I bought Shadow of the Colossus on PS3 and gave up before the first fight because I didn’t have the patience to deal with the controls. The PS4 graphics are nice enough that I pushed through two colossi but I’m not sure I’ll ever care to start the game again 😞

The funny thing is that, until the PS3 remaster came out, anytime someone said SotC’s controls were terrible I thought they were insane. The only thing I remembered was how clever it was to have a dedicated “grab” button.
