I like to bookmark many of the pages I find across the internet. I find it lets me create my own personal search engine on pages that I've already visited, allowing me to skip hunting for them all over again. With that said, there are plenty of pages I've bookmarked that I've never gone back to look at. This leaves much of what I find neglected, gathering digital dust.
My purpose with this library then is to share the various pages I come across on the internet, rather than hording their URLs to myself. I owe a special thanks to Nicolas Hoizey for his bookmarklet that creates a new link page within a GitHub repository, as it has made this page a maintainable idea.
We see more and more as the game industry grows a disease forming: an apathy, staring an infinate library of games but complaining of having nothing to play. But why does this happen? Why is it so difficult to start and then actually finish a game?
With all of the new insane advancements in virtual reality, it's a brave new world for designers to conqour. But something feels off about VR games. Regardless of budget, they don't quite stack up to the grandeur, comfort, or game feel of other more traditional experiences; and therein lies the problem with tradition.
...sooner or later a real life simulator rubs up against the one aspect of video games that will never, ever, be truly realistic. And that is healing. You can traumatize your art team by making them render a photorealistic bullet wound in a character’s once handsome face, but then they regenerate like the T-1000 after they swallow an entire bottle of ibuprofen and suddenly the whole futility of the exercise is laid bare.
While the report focuses primarily on U.S. Army stripping Confederate generals names from bases, I felt like much of the same perspectives can be applied to the removal of other colonial monuments throughout the world. If nothing else, the opening line puts the issue succinctly.
"What was gauling was that we would still, in this day and age, have names of bases that represented traitors who fought against their country for the purpose of slavery."
ASUS has responded to our prior concerns regarding its warranty. Finally, after a mixture of extended silence and conflict, the company has reworked its position to be more reasonable toward the consumer. In this video, we talk about ASUS' response to the Ryzen 7000 CPU VSOC problems, its commentary on purchasing 'positive reviews,' and we also bring an attorney on the show to provide legal insight and perspective to the situation.
Building a computer is difficult and building a CPU is even tougher.. But building the machines that are used to make a CPU? It takes literally the most bonkers engineering and physics on the planet, and ASML were kind enough to show us how it all works.
The web is an incredible medium, capable of creating beautiful, revolutionary, accessible experiences. There are countless ways to communicate these qualities in an accessible, inclusive way. All I am asking is to temper your excitement with the smallest bit of self-restraint.
On my attempt to look for the headlines Jreg flashed on the screen at the start of "Disinfo On The Rise!", I found this article which paints the referenced field of research in a more interesting light.
We do not want to suggest that the present state of the field is dismal. It isn’t. But to simply dismiss the critiques lobbied against it out of hand would not be responsible either.
As a sidenote, I'm now thinking that if somebody flashes a headline in a video, you need to ask for the URL.
Momentum is building in Web Dev World for a relatively new CSS color model, OKLCH, that promises to take fuller advantage of both newer display types and the way our eyes really work. While it’ll be a good while before you can be almost certain a typical device/browser combo will support this color model, proper use of fallbacks will let you safely start using it now in your website.
An insightful article that highlights some valid reasons why many can't leave existing social media platforms, let alone make their own.
...unless I’m prepared to live off the grid, I have to accept that rich, evil SOBs control many services and products I use and need. Twitter is only one example thereof. That is reality. I didn’t build it; I just inhabit it. Reluctantly.
It may well be that, in time, WebC will become Eleventy’s most familiar templating language, taking the spot long held by Nunjucks. And that’s probably just as well, because Nunjucks is a project bearing the signs of neglect.
