I thought it was depression or nostalgia that made music sound not as good as it used to. I'd just unintentionally turned the equalizer on.

 

30 mar.

Yes! iPad app pre-approved, with no changes required.

 

29 mar.

It's not right to pretend to be happily anonymous when most French bloggers knew of me ten years ago. So I must come out and say: I'm gay.

 

I have dinner with my parents and when I come back Ricky Martin is gay, cats and dogs are living together, and my bank account is—ah, no.

 

Wow, I'm so proud of living in the country that completely aped the design of whitehouse.gov. So classy and professional. Just. Wow.

 

28 mar.

Hours playing an iPhone game I don't enjoy (Puzzlings) just so that my avatar can get better clothes. I already knew I must never try WoW.

 

The usual: a whole day racking my brain to find possible domains names, three hours stuck on the one that's a perfect fit but already taken.

 

OMG we're losing one full hour of sleep I'm gonna be so tired on Monday oh wait no I don't give a fuck.

 

27 mar.

My tarot reading app will be the most prettiestsome of them all… but all the names are taken and I'm totally stumped.

 

As always, finding a name for a product launch is the worst part of all. And I've got a deadline with the free Gandi domain name vouchers.

 

26 mar.

I'm so excited by having almost finished the iPad version of @unicodeapp in less than a day that I can't go to sleep.

 

25 mar.

When I lived alone I didn't have to answer telemarketing calls. Now it's my responsibility to try and get them to stop harassing my parents.

 

24 mar.

Recon a une appli App Store ? Avec les textes qui sont sur les screenshots ? o_O

 

Bouh, on dirait bien que, même si je développais comme un malade avant le 27, je ne pourrais pas avoir @unicodeapp sur le store iPad.

 

23 mar.

Oh. I had forgotten that not everybody updates their iPhone apps right away. Postponing my suicidal urges until I get more statistics.

 

We Apple fanboys tend to forget that it's not the normal outcome for businesses that focus on quality to succeed.

 

I can't believe I thought people would pay for that service just because it's good. I'm still so naive sometimes.

 

You can now gift iPhone apps on the App Store, and nothing says love like the gift of @unicodeapp.

No?

Oh, well.

 

22 mar.

Je viens de mettre un drap-housse propre, et une heure plus tard il est plein de trous. Qui veut du civet de chat ?

 

Les rats, les rats, les rapaces.

 

21 mar.

Serial killers are so often former victims of bullying, you'd think the U.S., as individuals and as a country, would get the lesson somehow.

 

Les français n'en ont rien à foutre des régionales mais surchargent les sites d'infos belges et suisses par désoeuvrement, c'est mignon.

 

So the App Store approved the in-app purchases without notifying me, and didn't notice I had advertised the 2-month option as "6-month."

 

20 mar.

I'm on strike until the nice weather comes back.

 

Is this thing on?

 

Where's everyone? Out celebrating spring?

 

19 mar.

Apple "now accepting iPad apps." Yeah, well, I'm now accepting iPads.

 

Okay, that bit of optimization didn't do much. Can anyone advise on switching my Apache to the worker MPM?

 

18 mar.

A minuscule $.getJSON() call and I have my Twitter timeline sliding across my web-based screensaver. The Twitter API is indeed awesome.

 

Well if I'm not gonna find the courage to work, I might as well turn on the console.

 

I want to make @snapfilters 2.0 but it's disheartening that it won't sell any more copies anyway, with how much competition there is.

 

I can't decide whether @snapfilters 2.0 should hide the iPhone's status bar.

 

17 mar.

I think the cat misses being in heat.

 

16 mar.

Ah tiens, j'ai oublié de mettre les conneries façon écrire à l'envers dans @unicodeapp.

 

15 mar.

Just re-watched Magnolia (still good) to rest a bit and give myself energy to get back to work. Now beginning to see the flaw in that plan.

 

Tiens, Free me confirme la résiliation de mon abonnement au 28 septembre 2009.

 

I need to go back to sleep. I was mankind's only hope against the AI uprising and I must get back to that orbital station.

 

The amount of trouble I'll go through to have stupid fancy URLs on my Twitterfeed account that nobody cares about.

 

14 mar.

Faich', on m'a donné une idée d'appli iPhone que j'ai vraiment envie de faire, mais c'est encore un coup à devoir gérer un gros site social.

 

Having a status board to monitor my servers' load is stressful for no real benefit. Seems like it goes in the red at absolute random.

 

Oh, bon sang, ça fait 24h que j'attends que les DNS soient mis à jour, mais je m'étais planté dans la configuration.

 

Mais c'est quoi tous ces gens qui s'inscrivent sur le site le matin ?

 

13 mar.

Damn, I submitted my in-app purchases while there was an insanely stupid bug in my PHP script. Lost one week because of a < instead of >.

 

Si je fais les vidéos de démo avant d'avoir quitté Smallville, ça va être drôle, les mains couvertes de cicatrices de chat.

 

Textes, screenshots, tout est fait, il ne me reste plus qu'à me filmer en train d'utiliser mes applications iPhone. Un jour.

 

C'est particulièrement approprié que je rate toujours les yeux de mes smileys quand je suis mal réveillé et que j'ai les yeux mal ouverts.

 

Epuisant, de réécrire tous les textes du site. Mais c'était indispensable. Je spammerai les URL demain, quand les DNS seront à jour.

 

12 mar.

J'ai envie de m'acheter un nom de domaine de shortlinks pour utiliser un de mes bons Gandi, mais garoo.net est déjà court.

 

Corollary: I'm done redoing the entire Dendrocom website but can't put it online because I need to rewrite all the text and I'm unable now.

 

It's great that my brain can switch contexts but still scary how inarticulate & illiterate I become when I've been programming for days.

 

11 mar.

It's awkward enough to dream you have sex with a friend, but it's much worse when the sex was terrible.

 

Chevilles +200%

 

10 mar.

WTF? I uploaded @unicodeapp 1.1 yesterday, and it's just been approved.

 

Panic Status Board

Obviously inspired by Panic’s dream setup that’s been making the rounds for two days. I can’t afford a 46-inch industrial screen (slurp), but I have a Mac mini with a web-based screensaver and I know JSON. (Actually, I didn’t, but that way I got to learn.)

It looks all gray on the photo because everything’s working right and there are no warnings. (Except for the chart of online users on No Pic No Chat, I need to fix the script.) And the photo’s not as cool as Panic’s because, hey, 46-inchers are photogenic, but it’s pretty nice in person.

 

I've spent the whole day on it, but my Panic Status Board is coming along nicely. (It's still more productive than doing nothing at all.)

 

Faites-moi penser à faire la vaisselle avant 22h cette fois.

 

Ungh. Il m'a bien fallu un mois pour réaliser que je ne pouvais plus accéder à mes sites depuis le Mini parce que PeerGuardian bloque OVH.

 

9 mar.

Hop, mise à jour de @unicodeapp uploadée.

 

8 mar.

La mise à jour de l'appli @nopicnodial est déjà validée o_O

 

Facture du Crédit Mutuel établie le 3 mars, débitée le 10 mars, en valeur du 1er mars. Mais comment ça peut être légal ces trucs-là ?

 

6 mar.

Voilà, c'est fait, dix noms de domaine gratuits. Je devrais en utiliser deux-trois pour faire du domain squatting sur un an, tiens.

 

I can imagine a 50% chance that all my apps will have disappeared from the App Store tomorrow.

 

Just renewed my iPhone Developer Program for 79€, and now the Dev Center talks to me like I'm a complete stranger.

 

5 mar.

Perdu une heure à chercher un bug dans mon code parce que le Mac mini avait juste décidé d'interdire l'accès à i.nopicnodial.com.

 

Maintenant que j'ai acheté nopicnochat.com, est-ce que je change le nom de la version anglaise du site ?

 

4 mar.

Mon corps réclame un dîner léger, mais mon cerveau insiste pour une orgie de pain de mie complet.

 

Mise à jour de @nopicnodial uploadée ; on va voir si Apple me vire de l'App Store parce qu'il y a des mecs en slip ou si je deviens riche.

 

We've already done 10% of the twenty-first century.

 

Ah, voilā mon US_PYMT.txt, il ētait temps. 262$, ā moi la fortune. (Ok, c'est sur trois mois.)

 

Oh le con. Je me suis plantē d'un jour en mettant mon serveur ā l'heure cette nuit.

 

I feel like building a fort.

 

3 mar.

Ok, where's my US_PYMT.txt? It's time now.

 

2 mar.

I'm not gonna survive that quantity of couscous.

 

1 mar.

Why doesn't my log file update?

Why doesn't my log file update?

Why doesn't my log file update?

Oh.

It switched to the next day's log file.
