A love letter to a public transit system I haven’t used in years.

Star St.Germain and Tim Riot have made a really emotional pixel art journey through the city I simultaneously live in but rarely see anymore.

X to Y

Ever think it would be funny to replace a word with another? Sick and tired of a website deadnaming you? You are going to enjoy X to Y! X to Y supports plain text, regex, and urls.

Magnet Links

Tired of seeing “Safari cannot open the page because the address is invalid.” alerts when you try to open a magnet link? This Safari extension helps by adjusting the links to go through Put.io

Webbed - Sbug Games

webbed.website

I never thought a game about spiders would happily capture me in it’s web, but here we are. Highly recommend this game, and it’s a steal for the price.

Time to replace your improv partner! You’ve played AI Dungeon, now play Improv Dungeon. Write out your scenario and the AI will play along!

Heroku removes SMS as an MFA Verification Method

heroku.com

We all know SMS two factor auth is very dangerous due to it’s insecure nature, but we don’t often here companies actually doing anything about it. Most won’t remove SMS two factor auth because they want your phone number so they can better target you with ads. Hopefully we start to see more people follow this trend, as everyone else is just playing security theatre.

With the recent sexual assault allegations of former people’s champ GrandPooBear, I’ve been thinking a lot about his sudden heel turn, and I think this article hits him on the nose with a newspaper.

No Masters

Because Git and GitHub are too cowardly to already be setting the default branch from a white supremacy reference to something simple like “main,” here are instructions to fix your code repository.

Women Make

I stumbled upon this neat community of women makers the other day. Best of all they are trans/nonbinary inclusive.

ink - 🌈 React for interactive command-line apps

github.com

I am oddly excited about the possibilities of using React Hooks in CLI tools.

Ooblets

ooblets.com

I picked this game up in early access a few weeks ago and I’ve put a lot of time in to it. It’s a non-violent Pokémon meets Animal Crossing game with some of my favorite dialog in a game since Night in the Woods. While the game is unfinished and there are a few bugs, it’s still incredibly fun and I can’t wait to see where this game goes.

Boop: the Scriptable Scratchpad.

okat.best

This is pretty cool, I will definitely be writing some custom scripts for it. During my time as an engineer I’ve always thought the best way to steal company secrets is to make a JSON formatter website or something. I love their headline, “Stop pasting company secrets into random websites.”

I have now published publicly for the first time the code that powers this website.

Hey I just wanted to share that I open sourced a weekend experiment I made a few weekends ago to track pitch frequencies. It’s not the best, but I learned so much in building it within a few constraints: using React Hooks and must work on mobile Safari as well as desktop browsers.

Sometimes you need to help your family out from miles away. I had no idea this feature was in Windows, for free. Oh, and did I mention it just works?

Visual Studio Live Share

A new plugin from Microsoft for their code editor allows people to collaborate in real time on projects. This looks so fun.

“Amazon did not “give” us PTO — we took our PTO from Amazon’s greedy hands. And we have to keep fighting so that Amazon gives us our PTO on top of the sick time we already have.”

Nintendo explains philosophy behind Animal Crossing’s big changes, such as gender expression and terraforming
