It turns out the way to get me to do literally anything is to offer me a minuscule chance of winning a ticket to Glastonbury. I’ve purchased cheese, tea, chocolate, and have a fridge full of cider I’m encouraging my wife to drink for me. I follow people who make wellies, a bus company, and some kind of fizzy vitamins on Instagram. Yet shockingly no one has yet given me a ticket.

@stroughtonsmith very compelling argument, thanks for writing it up

There are some new docs from Apple to go with the new features enabled by Apple Pencil Pro — they're well-written, and they have workable sample snippets with a SwiftUI/UIKit toggle.

https://developer.apple.com/documentation/applepencil/playing-haptic-feedback-in-your-app?changes=latest_minor

https://developer.apple.com/documentation/applepencil/handling-squeezes-from-apple-pencil?changes=latest_minor

Very much appreciate this format!

Also a note from the HIG about new trackpad haptic support: "Apple Pencil Pro and some trackpads can provide haptic feedback when connected to certain iPad models"

@foon@mastodon.social avatar

@stroughtonsmith in particular I love the “use feedback intentionally” section as a corrective to the way I see every developer using haptics, this should be in bold on the top level of the docs

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a #vegan #cookbook with recepies from #Africa? #ethiopian #Eritrean #southafrican or any other?

    Could be in English, German or Norwegian.

    The vegan cookbooks I habe bought or lent focus very much on European, American or Asian food, but I would love to try different things.

    The first time I ate these ‘fire noodles’ my lips swelled but it was so delicious I kept eating them.

    Now it’s something I eat for fun.

    I get the 2x spicy because I need to feel something

    (Type Fire noodle challenge in YouTube!)

    Partly it’s ’I love spicy food’ and partly it’s ’I’m terrified I’ll lose my ability to eat spicy food and then I’ll be embarrassed when I go home)

    It's a weird subject for Last Week Tonight to cover, but I think I pretty much agree with Oliver's take on UFOs? More or less, there's weird shit out there, it's mostly pretty boring, and something we should apply scientific reasoning to.

    Speaking of video game adaptations; I really loved the new series. They nailed the feel of the game, but also delivered some fantastic storytelling. It even made me want to play the first two Fallouts just to get a little more understanding of the show.

    I loved it and you might too https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/B0CN4J59BF/ref=butts

    @divya indeed, the military was directly involved in a lot of these. (Interestingly the first Rambo is an exception, it’s a weirdly humane and anti-war response to Vietnam. After that one the series, uh, takes a turn.) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military%E2%80%93entertainment_complex

    @vees @divya the “for executives” qualifier is pretty important here! In short: fuck ‘em; in long: if anyone is going to work too much, may as well be the people with make believe jobs who get all the profits.

    I just had the weirdest interaction I think I've ever had on Mastodon.

    If you start an interesting thread, and don't want people to comment on it, perhaps it should have been a blog post with locked comments to begin with?

    @andycarolan don’t feel bad. Louie has very particular ideas about how social media should work that are just not compatible with how social media actually works.

    @foon@mastodon.social avatar

    @andycarolan yeah, that’s the right move for your own sanity! I have him on a rolling month-long mute, myself.

    foon,
    @foon@mastodon.social avatar

    @andycarolan the difference is that I can see when people respond (not sure if that’s an intended feature or an Ivory quirk), so if an interesting conversation does happen against all odds, I’ll get to see it. Probably not worth it though since they mostly end in tears!
