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

I think I chose the worst possible resin color for taking pictures, but I intend to paint them anyway. Or ridicule myself trying, at least.

DLP printing is amazing 😲

(But I’m gonna need a Dremel to clean up the supports.)

@ianwalker:

Looks like I picked a bad day to set this app up

Okay, a couple reboots did it.

When I look at the time I feel like I’ve got a fucking giant billboard on my wrist.

Also I can’t get my MacBook Pro to detect the watch and display the “Unlock with Apple Watch” setting, please tell me I don’t need to upgrade to Catalina so it’ll see watchOS 5.

Finally ready to enter the twenty-first century. My Series 0 must be the mobile device I kept the longest, and it’s not because it was powerful enough to last.

Two weeks is the time it took me to accept that I’ll never open again the liter of resin that was bundled with the printer, and try to order a replacement that doesn’t stink.

Rationally I didn’t mind that my new 3D printer’s resin stank to high heaven — the results were worth it.

Subconsciously I was so repelled by the smell (even though I didn’t think it was that bad) that I haven’t been able to bring myself to use it again for the past two weeks.

@dcurtis:

The more I read about quantum mechanics, the more convinced I become that our universe is a computer simulation.

The really weird stuff like quantum superposition and entanglement only make intuitive sense if you think of them as rendering artifacts of compute optimizations.

Why are we, as a society, accepting that the 123 and globe/emoji buttons are reversed when you go from iPhone to iPad?

Horrified to realize that if I hadn’t gone for a dual-filament printer (only to remove the dual-filament head later because it was shit), I could have bought a nice pre-assembled auto-leveling delta printer for the same price.

Feet or Wheels? Only €480 extra, because of course it requires a whole new chassis frame and isn’t just something you can attach later

@acarboni:

Sometimes I put down my iPad and pick up my iPhone and expect there to be different, more interesting internet on it.

@AntonioCasilli:

Moscow police officers illegally “monetize” footage of 175,000 surveillance cameras on forums and messenger groups. For 470$ anyone can have access to facial recognition lookup services. Interestingly enough, they do not work. #facialrecognitionisascam [bleepingcomputer.com]

The AT&T PC 6300’s demo program was an entire goddamned aesthetic.

Apple’s Clips app now supports memojis and the results look lovely, but the UI really needs an overhaul. Took me a while to find how to take (and manually save!?) a photo.

Two months in, and Face ID on the iPad Pro is still an absolute pain in the ass.
