@jamesthomson:So, how long until Twitter cut off API access to 3rd party apps? They’re cutting it off for their 1st party app… Three days ago I followed a tip to switch my Mac and iPhone to grayscale in order to improve productivity by removing the shiny colors distracting my silly monkey brain.It totally works! Twitter and Reddit feel less exciting — so instead I spent the day driving trucks on my PC. Every time I update my portfolio it reminds me that some of the most interesting designs I made were for my blog, and blogs are dead 😔And also everything is flat now 🙄 @yoyoha:Sticks and stones may break my bonesWords will also hurt meCompliments make me uncomfortable I have social anxiety I'm a wreckJust go

I bounced off of Spintires: MudRunner at release because too many annoyances hadn’t been fixed, but got back to it last night, finished two areas and all challenges and had to force myself to stop playing today — so I guess I’m not sorry I preordered it after all. Nope, that’s not emblematic of anything at all, move along and watch your step

I want a multiplayer version of Six Match to exist — two players or more on the same screen, having to choose between cooperating or messing with each other — but the game’s mechanics are a little too specific to be copied. @Caitlin_McGarry:Guess what? Sonos One speakers also damage wood. [tomsguide.com] HomePod profit margin estimates are surprisingly lowI have a theory that Apple launched the HomePod as a thank-you to the audio engineers who do great, unnoticed work on iDevices and Macs. Maybe they lobbied to keep the price somewhat affordable? It’s already been speculated that the Apple Watch was made to keep Jony Ive happy — but in that case he wanted to make a fucking solid gold watch so he was not about to object to any price. Wow, ordering Steam wishlists was already a pain in the ass, they had to go and make each entry five times as tall as it was. I guess I’m playing Dirt: Rally more realistically than I thought @mrgan:Photoshop tip: if you've never customized the appearance of the Layers panel, you're in for a treat. Hit the pancake-stack button to the right of the word Layers, go to Panel Options… Enjoy! “What the Grayscale Challenge Taught Us About Phone Addiction”As far as I’m concerned grayscale mode would be perfect if I could just automatically exclude a couple of apps (Darkroom and Instagram on iOS; Xcode and BBEdit on Mac).

@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. Oh fuck off 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. “Apple told us it was ‘not unusual’ for a speaker with a silicone base to leave a ‘mild mark’ when placed on certain oil or wax based wood finished surfaces. […] For us the mark hasn't disappeared and we'll have to sand and then re-oil our worktop.” 😨 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. “Last blog standing, ‘last guy dancing’: How Jason Kottke is thinking aboutat 20” This is neat, though. 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.

@mims:what if Boston Dynamics' and Magic Leap's business model is just to make viral videos @matthew_d_green:Google: “We think there are lots of consumer applications for this technology, like household assistants and—“Boston Dynamics: “YES BUT OUR CREATIONS WILL STILL DRIVE FEAR INTO THE HEARTS OF CHILDREN, YES?” “It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.“ @LamHua:Alerte porn auditif et #asmr : patiner sur de la "glace noire" produit de sons incroyables, entre craquements et... tirs lasers. À savourer avec un casque audio [youtu.be] “The Threat to the Mac: The Growing Popularity of Non-Native Apps” “Facebook is adding features to Messenger that’ll appear for new couples, ranging from mostly innocuous tweaks to cloying changes that’ll remind both of you that Facebook is always watching and trying to embed itself deeper into the fabric of your lives” @stevenf:Please don't allow Google to subsume (even more of) the open web in exchange for "more interactive and engaging" emails. [theverge.com] I can’t run my phone in grayscale because it’s my camera, but it does make the home screen look beautifully paper-like Since eliminating unnaturally bright colors from the screen to avoid distraction isn’t a completely absurd idea, here’s an AppleScript to toggle the grayscale accessibility option in macOS I’m now looking at every spot of color in my field of vision — the box of tissues, the chewing gum packs — and thinking they MUST go. I guess there was a subconscious reason all along for my tendency to decorate everything in shades of gray. @NathanJLiu:33 million people have installed Facebook run spyware on their phones under the guise of ‘securing personal information’. And Zuckerberg wants to run for President?[9to5mac.com] @hugwins:You know what one of the cheapest things you can get if you are trying to maximize calories is? In the US, that is. Because of how our subsidies work.Cake mix. In a cruel sort of twist, we really can let them eat cake. @hugwins:You cannot pretend a bag of chips and a bag of apples being the same price in a store--even if they are, and often they aren't--means people are just making bad choices.A bag of apples doesn't have enough calories. That's the baseline. I don’t mean this as a knock against Salon, but it’s appalling that we managed to implement crypto mining in fucking Javascript before / instead of figuring out micropayments for content “Peut-être que quelques gays ressentent ça comme une agression.

iFixit’s HomePod teardown is gruesome“No wonder Apple's repair price is 80-85% of the device itself.” That’s an interesting take on photo mode Took me a while to figure out how the tweeters work — looks like they send the sound down (not what you’d expect from the x-ray view), meaning the HomePod has to compensate for wildly different surfaces on which the sound will reflect, from wood to metal to glass 😲 @GameAnim:Haha - they actually did it! They used mocap for the monsters in World. @seanmcarroll:This seems like magic, but it’s just Fourier transforms (expressing a function as a sum of periodic functions). Which are a kind of magic, I admit. [twitter.com] @thedextriarchy:Altered Carbon’s prefab cyberpunk style isn’t just cliche, it actually undercuts the stuff that made cyberpunk an interesting genre in the first place [theverge.com] @braddybb:we are all going to die

Quand on était jeunes, la neige de la veille sur les trottoirs parisiens était dégueulasse de pollution, non ? The straightosterone of the two episodes I saw put me off as well; I think I’ll read the books instead, while picturing a human-proportioned version of Kinnaman in my head

All international borders on earth, classified by their age: [moverdb.com] via @heindehaas I’m ashamed that I didn’t look into it earlier but, damn, Smalltalk was beautiful Had to shuffle peripherals around to get my USB clone disk to boot up. Judging from the internets, it appears to be a thing in High Sierra (probably to do with power negotiation). How awesome is that. @fullbright:christ alive if '80s Japanese electronics in maroon lacquer finish ain't an aesthetic [floppy-diskette.tumblr.com] @ShedworksGreg:Slices of a Vikings Holiday by Marko Stanojevic A chaque fois que j’entends parler des twists de Star Trek Discovery j’ai envie de m’y remettre.

Fascinating Hidden Brain episode on how the language you speak changes the way you perceive the worldI want to learn the minimap skill. @JimMcCauley:What if Elon Musk's just committed the perfect murder? @twostraws:This C# compiles in 0.2 seconds, but the Swift equivalent won’t compile because the expression is too complex. Compilers are hard! 🤯 Bryan Fuller is now leaving projects for creative differences before they’ve even started. Progress! @beyoncellulite:Les leaders de #BlackLivesMatter meurent un•e par un•e dans des circonstances ""mystérieuses"" [twitter.com] @davidperrons:Harry Potter and the Representation I Didn't Actually Bother to Write But Still Want Credit For @gorosart:#Quill released the animation feature update today! It's hard to put in worlds how excited I am about this update. Quill created numerous memorable breakthrough moments for me as an artist since I started working in VR. Animation is the most exciting one to date.

[twitter.com] @EricHolthaus:successful simultaneous booster landings. oh man this just looks like we're a multi-planetary species @Objective_Neo:Elon Musk can synchronize the landing of two space rockets after launching a car into space and I can’t synchronize two threads in my code 😫 @artbyrens:"Exploring the limits of real time rendering"My latest work, rendered in @UnrealEngine.[youtu.be]#3D #gamedev #game #gameartist #Unreal #UE4 #artbyrens @neoliberal_dad:Maybe the reason it's happening again is that people like you are casually admitting this in the times instead of squirming in front of war crimes tribunals How dare you make your apps lighter and faster by using glyphs that are already in the OS instead of adding image views everywhere @kellabyte:I spent 4 hours debugging a multi-threaded lock contention bug in a CLI tool. Then I watched 2 rockets land up right on their assigned landing pads at the exact same time after launching a vehicle in space. I quit. @TheFavoritist:My four remote camera shots from #FalconHeavy @NASASpaceflight @ChrisG_NSF!

The Onion and Onion Public Radio present: A Very Fatal Murder @haydencd:"Bitcoin is volatile, imaginary money and only backed by people's faith in the system" said everyone right before the actual stock market imploded again.Hmmm, it's almost like both are ridiculous pseudo-gambling. @NathanJLiu:If an unexpected shutdown occurs, iOS will resume throttling regardless of whether or not you disabled it. @SilverBD:Visionnage essentiel : Là où les putains n'existent pas, réalisé par @Ovidieofficiel.
