This “Recall” feature that Microsoft just announced sounds very much like the latest fresh hell.

If nothing else, constant screenshots and activity recording seem like a very quick way to fill a hard drive. So I guess all of your activity will be stored on someone else’s servers?

@SamStrong One of the videos I saw of it said it’s all local and you decide on the space it can/should use.

I still think it’s a creepy nightmare though.

@SamStrong They showed filters where you could tell it “don’t track activity in these apps, or on these sites visited in supported browsers” but the general population isn’t going to do that.

And at somepoint in the future I can fully see it going from local only to “we’ll store a bit of it online to save you space” when in reality they want to harvest the data for other purposes.

My wife isn't on Mastodon, but I'mma gush about her on here because I need to.

She did her first solo aerial hoop performance last night and to say she smashed it would be an understatement.

I always knew she was good at it, but her performance last night was so far beyond anything I've seen of hers before.

I saw in awe watching her.

Her movements were deliberate and controlled. She was strong and sexy.

The pride I felt as the whole room cheered (and threw fake money) for her was unreal.

Pro Tip: In a pinch, you can charge your Apple Pencil on the back of an iPod.

Me: I want my summer to be away from a keyboard. I want to take photos and listen to music.

New podcast over at Software Engineering Daily: I speak to Billy Basso about his solo-dev journey with Animal Well, and how he built the game, his own engine, and his own tools.

https://softwareengineeringdaily.com/2024/05/15/animal-well-with-billy-basso/

This game captured me totally, I was not prepared and it's consumed the last couple of weeks. Cannot recommend it enough, but don't take my word for it: there's no better sign of the love in the game than Billy's super in depth explanation of his scanline effect in the early minutes of the show

@brunty@brunty.social avatar

@joenash I saw this game mentioned on the WAN show from LTT and when someone (I think their producer Dan?) mentioned that the engine was custom too it was like HOLY SHIT WHAT?!

Getting real tired of Spotify's constant "hey, here's an advert for tickets for some bands concert" banners at the top of the app that take up too much space and just get in the way.

@Marcus I have YouTube Music as part of premium, but when I last tried it, it was so bad. Maybe I need to try again

Problem solved.

Now my annoyance at banner ads in apps can be replaced with annoyance at tangled headphones.

@freekmurze ooooh this looks interesting

@brunty@brunty.social avatar

Each character you play has to have their own set of dice. Can’t be mixing and using others. Oh no. No no no.
