Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

Looks like Apple’s receipt validator suddenly decided to stop working — after eight years — if you use another base64 encoder than NSData’s 🤷🏻‍♂️

Why the fuck am I getting this message on a consumable IAP? Am I supposed to recreate a test user every single time I want to test it?

My IAP test account has been deactivated for whatever reason and I have to create a new one. THIS IS VERY CONVENIENT.

The gods gave me one clean print, and now I can’t get a print to adhere to my bed again.

What could be more realistic and fun than an active suspension? This super scale ’63 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 wagon makes engine noises and an Arduino reads data from a triple-axis accelerometer in real time, adjusting a servo on each wheel accordingly [buff.ly]

I’ve had issues with my cheap filament printer for months and all it took to get clean prints again was to change the shitty bowden connector it came with 🤦🏻‍♂️ How much did the manufacturer save by skimping on this part? $0.50?


Yandex Image Search tool isn’t just doing a reverse image search (like Google)…they appear to be using facial matching, allowing you to upload a photo of someone (even a non-public one) and determine their name. [nelsonslog.wordpress.com]

Rewind time a few years ago and it would have frozen on micro-USB & we’d have no USB-C.

It’s annoying having multiple cables yes, but this is a bad idea! [twitter.com]
