Right, enough #coding for tonight (https://mastodon.social/@FiXato/104742241957761397 / https://gist.github.com/FiXato/28be2bde6c93fa47c087ed213fc5b27b)
Time for a couple of rounds of #MarioKartTour to wind down, and then some sleep.
Should probably write a bit more of a detailed blog post with the how and why tomorrow. :)
I probably should've used my #development time to work on the backend/layout for the blog, but I felt more like working on a standalone thing that wasn't a continuation of an existing project, if that makes sense...
Okay, a bit of padding helps #BeardGrabber hit the individual numbers better. :)
Also highlighted the background on them, and the visual feedback makes a difference too. :D
The multiple audio files for a single item playing simultaneously needs some changes though, as that doesn't work very well when they have different durations... Should be an easy fix though.
Let's see if #Niantic implements this #localisation #featureRequest for #PokémonGO regarding in-game #dateFormats.
I guess I should've suggested #ISO8601 as well, but I guess most players would expect the format to be displayed in their usual #locale.
All right, here's my list of #recommendations and #games that look interesting in the #RacialJusticeAndEquality bundle: https://itch.io/c/977474/racial-justice-equality-bundle-recommendations
And some #assetPacks and #FantasyConsoles and other #development tools:
❠A person’s “preferred name” is their name, their “legal name” is something else, and it’s our duty as software engineers not to muddle the two up.❞
❠A name is a collection of characters that identifies a person. It almost certainly doesn’t identify them uniquely, and importantly, it need not bear any relation to their “legal name”.❞
❠Do Not Record Legal Names (Unless You Have To)❞
Instead of refusing me to use the app till I've manually updated the #Android #app via the #GooglePlayStore and force kill the running app once it's updated, it offered to download the #update in the background, let me continue to use the app in the mean time, and let me install the update when *I* wanted to. It then showed a separate #PlayStore update progress window and automatically returned back to the app afterwards.
right, to sort of answer my own question regarding #unf / #unfExt under #CygWin, which is a dependency of #faraday-cookie_jar->http-cookie->domain_name->unf->unf_ext, I managed to get it working with:
apt-cyg install ruby subversion make openssh openssl openssl-devel sqlite3 git git-completion nano gccmakedep gcc-core libgcc1 libgccpp1 gcc-g++ zlib-devel libiconv-devel
Not sure which pkg it actually fixed, but this worked for http-cookies as well as Nokogiri.
Code and discussion over at #MSXResourceCenter: https://msx.org/forum/msx-talk/development/10liner-basic-parallax-scrolling
Right, I've done all my #sofaCoding my brain will let me for today. Learned a couple of things, played around with #Hyperlinks in #TerminalEmulators support (https://gist.github.com/egmontkob/eb114294efbcd5adb1944c9f3cb5feda) and brushed some dust and rust off my #Python 'skills'.
* display what's currently playing
* list of recently played tracks, along with like/dislike/favourite buttons, and perhaps a way to quickly assign to a shortlist of playlists.
* frequently used timers
* last x toots from those I follow, matching certain keywords
* notes to/from @Siiw which don't need immediate attention
I wish #developers would either include music/sfx/speech volume *sliders* rather than just toggles in their (#Android) apps, or if app-specific sliders for them would be included/implemented on the #OperatingSystem level.
I would like to be able to listen to my music, and hear speech/sound effects of the #game I'm playing, but I want to be able to set the game's audio to a far lower level than my music player's.
#DearDeveloper, please don't forcefully open a webpage, especially upon install or uninstall of your application.
If I've just closed my browser to free up resources, I don't want to wait several minutes for it to start up again because you want to show a 'goodbye page', and then have to close it again.
Automatically opening webpages from an app without consent is just #BadUX.
According to this article¹ by Ignacio Monereo, #Android #games published longer than 4 years ago, and not generating more than 50% of the publisher's total revenue, represented 17% of the top games in the #Google #PlayStore, and the number of downloads in H1 2018 accounted for 17.5% of the total.
The section about revenue increase by removing older releases is also worth reading.
Please let me calculate #shipping fees without having to sign up/in; supplying my country and maybe postcode should be sufficient for that.
I'm not gonna supply you with #PII till I'm certain I actually want to make a purchase.
