journaling questions 

@streetwanderer I've started using DayOne over the weekend. It seems ok to do what I want.
I just really wish it had like a graph representation of a mood evolution or something like that.

journaling questions 

I'm looking into journaling to try to have something I can look back to when I have trouble remembering how things I enjoy make me feel. Let's be honest I won't be doing it if it's not on my phone/ipad.

Do you have any recommendations of journaling app, with a powerful tagging feature? Maybe with daily prompt & mood tracker too. Is DayOne still the best app?

boost ok 🙂

Just noticed that Ever Globe, an identical sister ship to Ever Given, is about to head through the same stretch of canal going the other way and I am praying for them to do the funniest thing of all time

Passover joke, birdsite 

"Happy Passover to everyone, and especially to the Ever Given as it waits to be freed from Egypt."

Any single entity that thinks they can protect a huge pile of valuable data forever is as naive as I once was.

We must stop taking the easy road or picking things based only on their UX.

Learn to use decentralized systems and teach others or the free internet won't survive.

> if there’s anything corporations love more than rewriting software so it lets them make all the money they can dream of, it’s letting other people do that work for them.

kongregate 

Since Kongregate and Flash are going to die soon.

Here's the only flash game I ever uploaded to that site:

I really wish we had a better setup for desk/work space.

I do not mind working from home but having that giant screen in the middle of the appartement as well as my seat being stuck between the table and the kitchen counter is not nice.

redbubble 

Redbubble is now making mask. So I took a minute to update my, empty, not lively, shop

I was just finding that the jumping snowmobile on a mask was funny.

rammstein, life story 

Realized today that my curse preventing me from seeing Rammstein live is still strong.

First occasion was in Paris, as a teen, but it was the night before "le Bac".
Second was in Paris again, but same night as diploma ceremony of my game design school
Third was in Montreal, but the show was announced after I booked everything to be in Paris at that time.
Fourth time was this June in Montreal, but a freaking worldwide pandemic cancelled that.

One thing this epidemic is giving us is a whole new power to the phrase "stranger danger"

For some reason I felt like installing X-Planes on my 2011 macbook with integrated graphics would go well.

Though that a sim would help me scratch that flying itch, but <3fps is not gonna work.

the OA, tv 

Been watching The OA season 2. And man what the fuck is even this show.

Season 1 was already "what the hell" but this season is even more what the hell.

At that point I'm just still watching because I'd like to know if they have a point to make.

work ~ 

Glad for the mandatory work for home so I can facepalm while on calls instead of having to stay professional.
