One of my friends said, "Describe your life in another language, and you will realize how ridiculous it is." I didn't believe it until today. I'm kinda explaining what life looks like in China. It's pretty normal in Chinese words, but when you have to find those words to represent those Chinese only things, it becomes ridiculous.
For example, the house price. There is no land price in China since by law all lands are government properties and they lend the land to you because you buy a house. And the household registration thing, we called hukou (there is an entry on Wikipedia for this term), it basically limits the freedom of moving to a city. You must bond to a city/place before you can live. The bond requires government approval. Not mention the already scary thing, like during the covid19, the police will break into your house and force you to be isolated, not because you're affected but because they think you're suspicious.
That sentence might not always be correct. Sorry for my limited knowledge, but I assume if you live somewhere like Europe, then your life is not ridiculous at all. One's life won't become ridiculous just because they use different languages to describe. It sounds ridiculous because it's ridiculous. They just didn't notice that in their native/local language.
#QOTO is back after a long migration in the first stage of our upgrade. Now that we are on a new home we will give it 24 horus to see if the move was bug free (As it seems to be) and then we will start upgrading versions one at a time day by day.. The upgrades are prepared and ready and should be **much** quicker.
The move took a while as we keep a backlog of every message to the start of the fediverse so our media and DB stores are quite large and it took a long time. But we are back!!!

@mekkaokereke Large touch displays had the 'gorilla arm problem', eye fatigue (at the moment at least) feels like a related problem. Note there was no 'simple fix' for gorilla arm, you couldn't fight physics and biology. In my career as a UX designer, it's always the *perceived* little things that ended up not being little at all. This happens so often I have a phrase for it, "Triumph of the mundane". It works both positively and negatively.
new Patreon posts up! Last month, I explained how the heck to make a custom Unreal navlink to make enemies precisely jump over gaps, or climb ladders, or any of that kind of thing: https://www.patreon.com/posts/making-unreal-95328696
So I snagged Immortals Fenyx Rising, that last gen Ubisoft game where they took the AC engine and made a Zelda BOTW kinda thing?
It hits different, now that every other game also aped BOTW. It feels (is) way less blatant. It adds a ton! There's a bunch of really novel mechanics in here, combat design is good too.
The demo turns out to have been terrible. Hated it. But the narration in the actual game is way more spread out, and thus actually fun? I just. Huh. It's actually great.
Here's a fresh list of the top 17M site host URLs that you can convert to just the hostname or domain name with ease. Feed it into turbograb to quickly mass download the index page or other interesting stuff at scale
visionOS' Persona feature looks even worse in today’s demo video than it did at WWDC 💀 I think I'll just do audio calls…
I work in software development for TV. I play PC, Nintendo, and board games. Sometimes I go outside and run.
