Dans la série ma vie est passionnante, cette nuit j’ai rêvé : que je roulais les R 🤷🏻‍♂️


A lot of modern flat design fans seem to presume it came about because of some research that concluded it was better and superseded the old.

Instead of what actually happened which was basically Apple giving a combo of UI + print designers 6 months to redesign everything.

Passion m’inscrire à des stages qui commencent le surlendemain.


Random things I learned this week: Iceland is full of sheep, but when I visited last summer, I didn’t see sheepdogs. So how do farmers control the flock? Answer: they have sheepsheep. ([]) A subbreed bred for smarts and flock leadership rather than food.

The highest city in the world celebrates its indigenous culture with Freddy Mamani’s Neo-Andean architecture []


Conversation I had with a non-gamedev person:

Them: “Have you see the new Fortnite store? They have free games there!”

Me: “Yup.”

Them: “And I get free games on twitch now!”

Me: “Yup.”

Them: “So… how do you make money selling games?”

Me: “Yup.”

I’m addicted to stories and D&D actual-play podcast archives will be the death of me.

I’m one-pass-secure-erasing a new HDD to make sure it works before giving it to the Drobo.

To that end I put it in an external, non-ventilated USB cradle.

It was getting hot so my bedroom window is now wide open to the 8°C outside.

Maybe one of these decisions was suboptimal.

Mark Twain didn’t learn to read until he was 63

Stanley Kubrick was only 41 when he faked the moon landing

Paul McCartney was already dead when The Beatles recorded Abbey Road

“White Nationalism’s Deep American Roots”

I’d been thinking, once a country went full Hitler again, the others might have a chance to rally around better values, but I didn’t know there was historical precedent.

EA survey finds majority of players want games to be more inclusive []

I’ve been a macOS user for a very long time and I see myself as someone who knows a lot of the little “hidden” features spread across the system. But I was surprised to learn about this today that I for some reason haven’t seen before. Very useful!

I’m still pissed off that Apple changed Finder labels to useless little dots.

I hate that I’m basically punishing a developer for giving out free content, but the expert maps for Beat Saber’s new free songs are so bad they’ve put me off buying the DLC. (Except for the one Jaroslav Beck track, and that can’t be a coincidence—does he map his songs himself?)


My Mac’s USB-C ports are now so loose that I don’t even miss MagSafe

J’ai trois voyages de courses à faire parce que je rentre de vacances et tous les placards sont vides, et l’ascenseur est en panne 💀

Ah et en bonus j’ai commencé la journée par une heure et demie de Beat Saber.


Beaucoup beaucoup d’énergie déployée pour expliquer que c’est quand même pas la faute des idéologues d’extrême droite si les gens commettent des actes criminels au service d’idéologies d’extrême droite.

As an iPad mini fan I’m offended that a new A12 model with Pencil support doesn’t warrant an announcement during next week’s keynote, but I can’t pretend that I’m surprised.

Also… ugh, that’s a lot of euros 😕

That “bring a joke to tell the class next week” exercise is triggering some bullshit PTSD I didn’t even know I had.


Nvidia unveiled an image creator that uses generative adversarial networks: with just a few clicks users are able to sketch images that are nearly photorealistic. The software will instantly turn a couple of lines into a gorgeous mountaintop sunset []

Adding a spring didn’t solve the issue but setting launch options to “-vrmode oculus” seems to make the sabers come back much faster. Makes sense — SteamVR would be adding a layer of error correction that messes things up — and explains why Oculus Store buyers aren’t rioting.

Would you believe that battery holder design will now be part of my primary criteria when it comes to upgrading my headset.

I love it that Facebook’s blog post announcing that it accidentally stored hundreds of millions of users’ passwords in plain text is headlined “Keeping Passwords Secure” []

I spend so much time in Beat Saber that I forget how cool it can be to stand in a fully detailed virtual environment. Corollary: every time I mess around with Oculus Home I’m mystified by how annoying the overall UX is, when Oculus used to be so good at that.

Le pays lointain — Odéon — 5/10

You’re the Worst 5x11 — 8/10

I’ve been waiting two years for a new iPad mini, because I love this form factor and my mini 2 struggles with most apps nowadays. But I went to the Apple Store and the iPad Pro is so much sexier I don’t know that I can handle spending 560 € (with Pencil) on the old design 😖

“But what about short games?” Well, short games already have the hardest time getting people to buy them, so they may still come out ahead.

ME: wait

Le rôle principal hier à l’Odéon avait la dégaine, les intonations et le pardessus de David Tennant dans Doctor Who, et c’est un tout petit peu incongru quand on regarde une pièce de Lagarce.

I was looking for a new mobile photo editor because Darkroom has become slow and buggy, and an App Store feature (I should read those more often) provided me with a new favorite [] The UI is fantastic and, as an unexpected bonus, it also handles videos 😲


Apple the product company has great incentives to behave well and make great stuff.

Apple as a services company is incentivised to become another horrible creepy company.

Apple’s services push is a very dangerous direction for the companies future. []

Pourquoi est-ce que Leroy-Merlin a des makerspaces mais pas de rayons composants électroniques 😒

Sorry to state the obvious, but Apple having its own credit card is so obviously, stereotypically dystopian I feel like I’m watching a cheap scifi parody.

Apple Arcade makes it pretty much impossible for an independent developer to sell a small single-player game on the App Store. Anyone who’s willing to pay for games will already have a subscription to a bunch of AA and AAA experiences, so why would they buy your little thing.


I really don’t understand what Apple’s trying to do here. Prove it’s making shows? With celebrities? That’s not surprising or new. Show us the shows, or the wild new ways we’ll watch them, or SOMETHING, otherwise we’re just here watching TED Talks about TV shows

Apple’s music subscription: all the music you can listen to.

Apple’s magazine subscription: 300 of the most popular magazines.

Apple’s game subscription: a hundred third-party games.

Apple’s TV subscription: 13 original TV shows.



So actual new products got released as press releases last week, and they devoted a whole event to services that are not ready yet, and will have extremely limited availability when they do finally launch.

The real danger is that Apple will compromise the overall user experience of the phone to upsell services and drive this potentially huge revenue, which is already happening - see Apple Music push notifications, for example

A Fisherman’s Tale tried so hard to make me seasick I had to close my eyes for one sequence, but it was otherwise very clever, well done, and quite pretty. I just need to lie down now.


The only subscription model I find ethically palatable is “Sketch’s pay for updates” semi-subscription.

Stop paying: It’ll keep working. All your stuff is still there. You still own what you’ve paid for.


Added five images of Assassin’s Creed Origins. Absolutely see the high-res ones of these. []

I’ve got twelve correct fates in Obra Dinn. I guess I’m allowed to leave and consider myself done?

But I don’t want to turn my book in with only 12 fates out of 60, that’s just sloppy.

But I don’t want to keep replaying flashbacks hoping to glean incidental hints.


There’s a lot of great UX work implementing all the aspects of the book, so I guess they had a reason for choosing not to let me replay a scene right from the page, but that’s still a right pain in the ass.

I know the P30 Pro has only just been announced but I’d still like to find a single article explaining how it’s physically possible for an RYB sensor to produce full-color photos. I don’t doubt it receives more light as a result, but how does it differentiate yellow from green?

The payment form for renewing my Apple Developer Program membership doesn’t work so I guess within a month I’ll finally be relieved of the stress of dealing with the App Store 🤷🏻‍♂️

Sure, Baba Is You is a good puzzle game, but have you ever tried assembling a cheap-ass 3D printer from the manufacturer’s instructions?


Swift views my favourite bits of ObjC as bugs to be removed.

Swift has no target goal or reason for existing, just trying to be a master of everything.

And has fundamental design conflicts with Cocoa, UIKit, etc…

Only just checked the trailer for Telling Lies and I really need to move forward on my narrative game projects so that I too can end up directing actors from all my favorites TV shows #lifegoals

You’re the Worst 5x12 — 8/10


Valve announcing its VR headset is an extraordinary moment. So few know the magic of HTC Vive was almost entirely Valve’s VR research and its tracking technology. This is looking like the BIG bet on VR — a doubling down — that some have been hoping Valve would make.

Je suis à mi-chemin de Love Death + Robots et un excellent épisode (Three Robots) ne suffit pas à compenser la demi-douzaine de femmes nues torturées. Il fallait (ou pas) oser sortir un truc pareil en 2019 🤮

Figured there was more value in opening up a whole new avenue for creativity, so I bought a 3D printer instead of an iPad mini. I’m as fascinated watching the head move as I was by my first inkjet printer 25 years ago — except, you know, it’s printing an actual fucking object.

You know, I’ve been in the software development business for more than 40 years now, and there is one thing that I know for a solid fact: Nobody knows how to build software. Yes, sometimes it gets built, but it’s a random, unrepeatable event. A lucky accident.
