RIP Jambox mini which I have been using for 4 years, 8 hours per night, as my white noise speaker, despite weak power supply and shitty bass. Last year Jawbone stopped software updates. This summer Jawbone went bankrupt. Now it won't even turn on, and they can't replace it.
Everyone laughs at Old Man Mark who won't upgrade to High-as-in-420 Sierra until it's fully, uh, baked. Then root happens
Apple, @tim_cook, seriously, fuck off with these new OS version updates. Quit nagging me every day, I don't want High-as-in-420 Sierra on my Mac yet, and sure don't want iOS 11 on my soon-to-be-retired iPhone 6S.
My AC:PC is now waiting for a 6 hour item to craft. So, my #protip list thus far:
- Check the craft time before hitting OK! You can't cancel an item!
- Always do orange chat options first, they have rewards.
- Someone please put some stuff up for sale, I want the buyer cheev.
Shut down that account forever, Jack. You know it's for the best. Twitter Shuts Down Abusive Account for 11 Minutes
To make it easier to see what's important in my blog, to cut away the noise, I've added a star category. Still thinking about how to surface that better, especially for new readers.
So I submitted a new build of Perilar today, fixing 64-bit and iPhone X issues. Got a rejection, for mentioning "unreleased hardware". The iPhone X emulator is in the standard SDK, and has significant UI issues… but we can't say that in the update. Sigh, Apple.
AIM is being shut down and the Kids Today™ are sad. LiveJournal was driven under by Facebook, then bought by Russians and murdered for being gay. ICQ is still going, but nobody uses it. I miss USENET 🙁 . Blogs & blogrings were killed by Twitter but some of us are posting again.
I like the '90s raytraced Geocities aesthetic and clearly Dropbox does, too.
So I sit down to code, and get maybe 30 minutes in, and BAM, interruption. Sit back down and growl and swear a lot, get back into the zone, and BAM, another interruption. Growl, gonna go play games where I murder people.
So here's today's music:
- Escape From Noise, by Negativland - me & my friends listened to this album so many times in college it's completely wired into my head.
Aside: Posted this with the micro.blog client, which now does long posts. I went into the WP dashboard to add categories, but it'd be just fine for most blogging.
