(re)introduction 

Been here for a while but I've always been lazy and never did this so here we go:

I'm Damien (he/him), from France, living in California, I post about:
- computers
- nerd/weeb shit
- music
- meta stuff
- programming
- politics sometimes (fuck nazis and terfs)
- video games
- i probably forgot some other things b/c it's late and stuff

And that's mostly it ✨

Every time Art Of Life by X JAPAN comes on, i have to post about it, i dont make the rules youtube.com/watch?v=0eqmkgSeYj

Also I learnt the hard way that maybe going straight for the exit after two chambers in Styx isn’t a winning strategy when Hades is just out there πŸ₯²πŸ˜‚

Why does Theseus look like That in Hades. I can’t take him seriously πŸ˜‚

ive been anxiety-ing for myself and my family in my home country because i can see them but sure, go fly everywhere and gather all the time as if the pandemic will magically disappear

Sorry for being a salty grump but I’m starting to get upset at folks not sheltering in place and posting abt it when COVID is worse *everywhere* πŸ™ƒ

At least keep it for yourself out of respect for those who are taking it upon themselves since March.

Hire me to translate your game into French!

I’m native in French and fluent in English. I’m familiar with American, British and French pop culture and references.

I’ve already made a full fan-translation of a game, including graphics and TTS voices: traduction.faith/

Boosts welcome!

After spending a few weeks with that setup, I noticed that, like, pixel art icons don't scale very well, so I went ahead and made .icns files for every PokΓ©mon artwork from Bulbapedia, and it works a bit better i think?

What's the best wallpaper Apple ever made and why is it the one from OSX Tiger.

Watching Caramelldansen in sharp-ass 1440p in 2020 is breaking my brain, in a very good way. Very much recommend archive.org/details/flash_Cara

The crazy performance gain stories from M1 Macs on Xcode make me kinda sad my main dev tools are single threaded and would most likely not take advantage of the new chips 😬

If you're wondering why I ask, it's because depending on the answer my macOS install may have a bug and I can't find a straight answer ;_;

Like, basically, I'm expecting it to change to/from dark mode at <sunset time> when I'm using the OS. But it seems like it doesn't, and obviously Apple's documentation is extremely vague.

Okay I have a very dumb macOS question because I feel like I'm getting crazy.

Is the "Auto" mode for Dark/Light mode supposed to change to either modes _when_ macOS is used? I see conflicting reports about this and I'm starting to think it's only supposed to change the theme while the system is locked/on sleep or something πŸ€”

The Mac version of Darkroom still has some rough edges but it's great already and runs way better than Lightroom ever did on my machine... Very tempted to use it to replace Lightroom on all my devices at this point medium.com/the-bergen-company/

I can't help but wonder if this thing could be hacked to run...like...random NES ROMs...
