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.
This is why the press and Apple shouldn’t trust reports based on repair data alone.
Bringing/sending in a laptop for service is hugely disruptive for people, who own them because they need them.
It’s easier to live with a flaky key than to go without your MBP for a week+.
This right here is borderline dystopian
As for me, I’m quite content to find out that you can disable the prompts entirely.
Lava crickets appear on the cooled crust of lava after a volcanic eruption. They can’t fly and live on blown in decaying vegetation. They move away as soon as plants and other animals move in. Nobody knows where they come from or where they go to.
Why can’t I give my favorite photo-editing app blanket permission to modify any photo on my iPhone? Especially given that the edits are stored non-destructively.
I’ve been very impressed by what I saw of the P30 Pro. I mostly use my iPhone for Twitter and Instagram, so I’d actually consider switching if any of my favorite photo editing apps were on Android.
I started listening to a story about the Valley of the Kings and immediately became depressed remembering that AC:Origins’ world doesn’t exist in a VR-explorable version.
Have people already pointed out that Marzipan, by introducing desktop paradigms into the codebases of many iOS apps, would make it pretty easy for Apple to introduce an impressively functional version of this in 2020?
Played some no-arrows Beat Saber for a change (they’ve updated the game while the mod installer is down, so no custom songs) and damn I’d forgotten how intense that was. I’ve gotten rusty.
Also it was easier when the springs in my controllers’ battery compartments were younger.
There should be a hotline you can call where you can safely pronounce words you’ve only ever read out loud for the first time, and they say “oh sweetie” and kindly explain how it’s pronounced.
Comment réagir lorsqu’on se fait call out:
- calme toi, ça ne veut pas dire que tu es une horrible personne mais que tu as fait/dit une connerie
- écoute, n’interromp pas ou n’essaie pas de te défendre. Concentre toi pour essayer de comprendre où tu as merdé.
Started AC:Odyssey on a friend’s PS4. Picked Alexios. As soon as he opened his mouth I wanted to change, but I can’t be bothered to play the Leonidas prologue again — so that’s the game sorted, then. (I was never very motivated. Greece doesn’t hold a candle to Egypt.)
At a friend’s for the weekend; I was going to watch Netflix but the auto-playing trailers sent me into a UX rage spiral. The lack of a setting to disable them is so user-hostile it makes me want to torrent all of their original shows, on principle.
Bandersnatch didn’t end in a very interesting place, but I enjoyed its metaness more than what I expected from the reactions around here. It’s not like Netflix invented the non-choice in an adventure game, but they made good use of it.

iTunes is not going anywhere—not for many, many years. It will remain the only way to organize local libraries and sync devices, because Apple considers local libraries and local sync as deprecated.
2002 🆚 2018
How watching Tiger has changed post-smartphone.
Tech enthusiasts: My entire house is smart.
Tech workers: The only piece of technology in my house is a printer and I keep a gun next to it so I can shoot it if it makes a noise I don’t recognize.
If ants summoned humans like humans summon Cthulhu.

It’s wild that Twitter is quite swift at taking down tweets that offend big media copyright holders even from verified entities but death threats to @IlhanMN sit untouched for weeks.
Never forget that addressing abuse isn’t a hard problem, it’s just one they don’t care about.
I’m so glad we let tech platforms eat the journalism industry.
Now, I can sit and watch a live stream of Notre Dame burning while YouTube’s fake news widget tells me about 9/11 for some reason.
Getting Really Into Actual Play podcasts is like getting into a genre of TV shows where the first series is exclusively filmed using cameraphones from 2012
“Oh my god, Breaking Bad is fantastic, you have to watch it. Don’t be put off by the first five episodes being a flash animation voiced by the writers, they get a real budget by the end of the first series”
Periodic reminder that the original Twitter for iPad was one of the best iPad app UIs ever released.
14h : Non non je ne peux pas sortir profiter du soleil, il faut absolument que je bosse aujourd’hui.
17h : Sérieusement je vais me mettre à bosser d’un instant à l’autre.
” and then I found some that actually named “FINAL”
Cette nuit je me suis réveillé littéralement toutes les vingt minutes sans savoir pourquoi — alors que mon coloc n’était même pas là pour claquer les portes ce matin.
J’aurais pu prendre mes lunettes de soleil au lieu de faire la grimace au couple de mecs qui promènent leur poussette.
#DnD is a roleplaying game that let’s you live out such fantasies as:
- Having money
- Making close friends as an adult
- Traveling the world without crippling debt
- Being able to change the world
- Getting better at something with practice
- Getting 8 hours of sleep each night
Finally done! Here’s a reproduction of a Gennady G.Ovcharenko drawing (picture#2) with MagicaVoxel. I added other lightning tests, a general view and a small video in comments, hope you’ll like it! :) #Magicavoxel #voxelart
What Silicon Valley promised was the break-up of concentrated power.
What Silicon Valley gave us is greater concentration of power than ever.
Now five companies control America, instead of 100. And a lot of those companies are whiter and more male than the ones they disrupted. [twitter.com]
Many of you will have seen this video before, but if not, take a look. It’s a great demonstration that cats and humans may share some aspects of visual processing that drive the rotating snakes illusion.
I’ve spent so much time playing Globesweeper while listening to podcasts that I’ve got auditory flashbacks to a Call of Cthulhu actual-play campaign when I launch it.
The minimize-to-dock animation is such a cute reminder of what used to be. I suppose Apple’s anti-fun brigade forgot it exists because they only use full-screen windows, which can’t be minimized.
1. After spending six months reading incel sites nearly every day, speaking to over a dozen incels, and reviewing forum records going back over 20 years, I came to a really scary conclusion about the nature of modern politics itself https://t.co/zuxWtYoZDC
I just realized I never saw a photo of a female muscle system. This is NOT what I imagined milk ducts to look like. https://t.co/GBK6trgXF8
I started thinking, I hope Instagram doesn’t decide they need to show more of the captions… then I realized that must have been a factor in the scrapped UI redesign where you swiped between posts as if they were stories https://t.co/3ichygSBNw https://t.co/CZSpgLAoPH
The best video of a chimpanzee using Instagram that you will see today. https://t.co/R8ef9W19it
“Worakls Orchestra live @ Château La Coste for Cercle” https://t.co/jAVijFvfuE Non seulement la musique est top, mais le DJ / chef d’orchestre s’éclate totalement sur scène, donc forcément je suis amoureux 😫
I opened iTunes to buy an album and the obnoxiousness of this almost made me reconsider https://t.co/wYYkO7eOAW
🤡 Cool thing I just found out is possible in HTML. No practical use, just fun. https://t.co/4zqQBMm46Z
I’ve just added the CERN sticker to my NeXT Computer mini replica build documentation. I added the actual sticker a while ago for maximum authenticity, but I’ll stop short of weathering the case I think! https://t.co/U3AoQM5zu6 https://t.co/DfvDGUDjhw
