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.

1 août 2018

Visiblement parti pour passer ma semaine à comater toute la journée en attendant que ça se refroidisse un peu pour passer deux heures dans Beat Saber. Je suppose qu’on peut considérer comme des “vacances” mais c’est quand même pas super réjouissant (ni productif).

I wish I could know how many people have posted high scores for each song in Beat Saber. Can’t brag about being between 1,100 and 1,300 on all my favorite songs on Expert if I don’t know for sure that it isn’t out of 1,500.


Last USA visit I had an employee lunge across the counter to stop me tapping a contactless card to pay “NO! IT CRASHES THE MACHINE” but it was too late. 4 min reboot was required.


An Ontario sunflower farm that let in photographers for a small fee says it’s closing access to the public forever after hordes of Instagrammers descended on the property over the weekend []

I assume a designer whipped up a quick mockup in Photoshop because the new iPad’s actual glamour shots don’t exist yet, but… yikes.


Le numéro de l’obs au dela de sa couv’ est juste une horreur.

tl;dr I would be extremely into Elon Musk hiring Ken Levine to produce a vanity FPS/RPG where Musk is some Andrew Ryan-style philosophy-spouting villain on Mars

when you have lyrics for the Jurassic Park theme but you forget how it goes []

Finally just gave the unofficial Beat Saber track editor a try.

Well, looks like I’ll wait for the official editor.


Thinking about writing an adult portal fantasy where the protag has a panic attack about the power point they’re about to give and hide in a closet, only it’s really a doorway to magical kingdom where they get to be eleven and live in a treehouse where sandwiches grow like fruit.

Le caissier du Marks & Spencer apprend vite, il n’est plus surpris de me voir passer avec une demi-douzaine de bouteilles de ginger beer.

Did macOS stop auto-installing printer drivers so that Apple can push AirPrint and get a royalty on more printer sales? Because that’s what it looks like from here, having to tell HP I’m running 10.6 so the site stops telling me the OS will just detect the printer, even though it won’t.

I demand to know why I am not sleeping.

Why are there a dozen apps for taking RAW photos on iPhone but I struggle to find a good app to try and denoise them a bit?

Not sure why I had never looked much into it, but Photoshop Express did the trick. You can correct RGB noise separately from luminance noise, so you get a decent grain instead of the iPhone’s oil-painting noise reduction algorithm.

Though at this point I’m pretty sure a machine-learning algorithm should be able to take this photo, recognize that it’s a cat picture, and reconstruct the hair and eye textures.

“Congrats” in Indonesian is “selamat”. Selamat also means “to survive.”

After the 6.9 magnitude earthquake in Lombok, Facebook users wrote “I hope people will survive”. Then Facebook highlighted the word “selamat” and throw some balloons and confetti.


There’s a great feature in Far Cry 5 where if you skip some quest giver’s dialogue, they’ll give you a super quick TL:DR rundown of what you need to do.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s exploration difficulty settings go beyond toggling HUD markers and actually change the world art - I love it! More great accessibility details here []. Keep up the good work, @EidosMontreal!


Nice! Shadow of the Tomb Raider lets you independently select the combat, exploration, and puzzle difficulty - to get rid of visual cues and puzzle hints, without making the combat harder. []


anytime i want to post a joke on twitter i think about all the people who won’t get the joke, who will try to ‘add to’ the joke, or otherwise ‘correct’ the joke and it makes me hate y’all too much to give you any of my jokes

When Unavowed gives you a game-halting moral choice in a situation where it makes no sense for the world to wait for you, the NPCs keep talking among themselves behind the prompt in order to delay the action and it’s the most beautiful thing.

Also how did the industry go through three decades of point-and-click development and it’s still a notable innovation that Unavowed lets you “look” at objects by just hovering the mouse over them.

Me, endlessly: Explain your game!

Rockstar: does it like they’re selling a high-end boat

Me: OK no that does kill it, let’s all go back to being infuriatingly opaque.

There is nothing I find appealing in the Red Dead trailer except for how well the horses are modeled and animated, but then that video did go out of its way not to be exciting. (And I don’t care for westerns. And I Rockstar has moved away from nice, human stories.)

My headset went black in the middle of a Beat Saber session and I was too scared of what I’d find (what with all the sweat) to troubleshoot before leaving for the weekend 😰

This looks to be another awesome card game I’ll never get any of my friends interested in

Similar to a team building exercise I’ve had (count from 1 to 20 out loud, as a group, one person at a time, eyes closed), with thankfully a bit more information.

Sets up old iPhone 6 again as a backup device. Remembers it’s running iOS 12, like the iPad. Swipes up to switch apps. Swipes agai—oh, right.

Giving all iPads the X-style multitasking UI, but not the iPhones, is so. goddamn. petty.

Always surprised to rediscover this dark pattern whenever I have to set up Tweetbot from scratch

Dammit. Someone’s introduced Overwerk on Beat Saver before I got a chance to. And the beatmap is no good.

Don’t switch to Twitter’s app. Don’t even set it up just for the notifications. Let their decision carve an imperceptible dimple in their engagement curves.

“But my DMs”?

There are hundreds of better solutions for chatting with your contacts than Twitter DMs.

I will never get tired of saying this because it is hilarious to me that the CEO of a world-shaking company that probably helped get the worst president in American history elected is distracted by figuring out how to process payments with iphones

Got a server last year from @online_fr during the January sale because it was 6€/mo and… well, I’ll find something to do with it. (I didn’t.)

They just notified me they were doubling the price — “but hey, we’re still pretty cheap.” What kind of shitty business practice is that.


20 years ago, 2 years after the arrival of combination therapy that effectively treated #HIV, the Bay Area Reporter, San Francisco’s LGBT newspaper ran ‘No Obits’ as its headline.

Twitter has done more to stop 3rd party developers than stop nazis


This is the most succinct definition of Bitcoin. 😭😂💀 []


120h workweeks, zero time for kids, family, or friends. Insomnia, anxiety, and erratic behavior as a result. Maybe this glorious American ideal of the entrepreneurial executive that sacrifices everything to the point of mental collapse isn’t so smart? []


“Alright Bill, we’re going to lock you in this room for 30 years with nothing but millions of untagged cat photos. Can’t wait to see how this skills training session pays off!”

How about if, instead of ditching Twitter for Mastodon, we all start blogging and subscribing to each other’s Atom feeds again instead? The original distributed social network could still work pretty well if we actually start using it

Adding drag-and-drop to Uniconsole, I was shocked at lack of UI feedback when you can start dragging. Couldn’t make visual changes (no way to revert if the user doesn’t drag), but I added a bit of haptics and it feels so much better I can’t believe it doesn’t happen by default.

Tinder a ajouté les live photos / boomerangs aux profils avant que j’aie l’occasion de le faire dans NoPic 2.0 😔

J’aime aussi beaucoup le fait qu’ils affichent différents éléments du profil en surimpression quand on passe d’une photo à l’autre dans l’UI principale 😠

Au moins l’app est toujours programmée dans un framework de merde qui fait surchauffer mon téléphone à ne rien faire.


So this is an ecological disaster in the making, a “single use” phone battery from @Tesco. Contains an off-the-shelf, and entirely rechargeable, standard 600mA Lithium Ion cell along with charging circuitry. For £3 you may as well buy it for components? 🙄 []

Reading a one-star review for the free version of Uniconsole, I’d like to thank App Review again for preventing my keyboard extension from telling the user an IAP is required to enable full functionality — because “advertising” is forbidden in keyboard extensions.

Straight guys love having their cocks sucked, straight guys mock and shame women for sucking cocks, straight guys complain to me about how hard it is to get their cocks sucked. []


Straight guys also complain about how much easier it is for gay guys to get our cocks sucked. Here’s the secret to our success, straight guys: we don’t mock and shame guys who suck cock—unless it turns a particular guy on.

My Mac occasionally lost the fancy connection to the AirPods, reverting to tin-cans-on-a-string quality, and that went from irritating to comical when I eventually realized it seemed to be caused by using iOS Simulator.

Je comprends que le coup des Gaulois machin c’est de l’humour faut de l’autodérision d’un autre côté ça vient d’un type qui a pété un câble parce qu’un ado l’avait appelé par son prénom puis a posté la vidéo à ses millions de followers donc niveau autodérision j’l’emmerde.


lol this is why CDPR was so hesitant to show any Cyberpunk gameplay


It took far too long because the entire interface had to be redone, but Uniconsole is now fully compatible with iPhone X and iOS 11. Simpler navigation with tabs, systemwide drag-and-drop, filters can now be applied to partial selections, and more! []
