Since I’ve stopped using Twitter, Screentime started counting crazy stats for it, like 15h a day? Weird

I know how I'm spending my Saturday: my daughter loves LEGO Ninjago, so I decided to create a board game for her. We already have a working prototype, and now I'm designing the cards for the set! She's my art director today for the badges and special powers.

Oh how I miss Flight Control from iOS… Are there any games with similar mechanics?

Exactly 14 years ago , Satoshi Nakamoto designed the most pathetic / inefficient system ever invented by humankind : the blockchain.

Today, it weights 60 000 tons, wastes constantly 10 gigawatts (more than Belgium or Chile) to process less than 7 transactions per second :

Less than a 33 bps modem from 1990.

This could be a joke if it didn't have such gigantic environmental impact, wasn't enabling billion dollars ransomware industry and was not crushing thousands of lives in the process.

Happy April Fools day to everyone who thinks the US date format is weird 🎉

Watching language models become content-producing machines. Wondering how the web will feel after we flood it with GPT-X articles, tweets, toots, and tiktoks

the media is strange. mastodon is "too complicated" because you choose a server but otherwise it's basically the same as twitter… but, somebody just lost millions in bitcoin because of they didn't check the PGP hash on a server software update (or something) and yet that thing was supposed to supplant fiat currency? 😂

Does anybody have any resources on sound design for user interfaces? I feel like I often know generally what kind of sounds I want but don’t have the slightest idea where to start in terms of generating them in any of the software I have (or what other software I should learn?)

For me personally 2022 has been great for gaming: here are the ones I was able to finish. And now, my body is ready for Ragnarök 🪓

$TSLA crashing because the company is on autopilot is the most fitting end to 2022 possible

I think it’s important to repeat: you don't "have something to hide" when you put blinds on your windows or close the door when you're on the can or wear clothes.

Privacy isn't about having something to hide. It's not about keeping secrets. It's about you being the person who chooses what you reveal about yourself, and when, and to who, and the other word we have for that is "dignity". Your inherent dignity, as a human being.

Your privacy is the agency you have over your dignity.

When #TikTok is opened, set volume to 5%

No more accidentally loud video: while the kids are sleeping or weird/inappropriate video sounds for anybody near me because of what TikTok thinks I like 🙉

He talked about electric cars. I don't know anything about cars, so when people said he was a genius I figured he must be a genius.

Then he talked about rockets. I don't know anything about rockets, so when people said he was a genius I figured he must be a genius.

Now he talks about software. I happen to know a lot about software and Elon Musk is saying the stupidest shit anyone's ever said, so when people say he's a genius I figure I should stay the hell away from his cars and rockets.

Merry Christmas.Twitter APIs have been abused and data is now being sold. Consider your account security. Especially if you are coming from Twitter and maybe… just maybe… don't have the best security practice there. I doubt this is the last we see of these types of events.

The data is now being sold online.
