Steady Drop v1.3 Is Out

This version fixed only one but critical bug: previously you might still get a few video ads after purchasing the "No Ads & Coin Booster".

I'm truly sorry for this bug. Happy dropping without ads, finally!

∞ CenturyLink Is Blocking Its customer's Internet And Injecting Ads

Rich Snapp writes:

CenturyLink is blocking its customer's internet until they confirm they've seen notification for paid security offering

Notification is injected into customer's browsing sessions using ethically questionable DNS Hijacking

CenturyLink claims this is required due to Utah S.B. 134 but bill sponsor says "not like this"

Those using streaming devices (FireTV, Chromecast, etc) or their own DNS offering (OpenDNS/GoogleDNS) don't receive notification to unblock their internet and are effectively SOL

If you haven't heard of CenturyLink, it's actually the third-largest telecommunications company in the US in terms of lines served.

∞ Discord to Allow All Developers Self-publishing Games with 90/10 Revenue Split

Last week Epic announced they are launching a game store. Now today, Discord announced:

Starting in 2019, we are going to extend access to the Discord store and our extremely efficient game patcher by releasing a self-serve game publishing platform. No matter what size, from AAA to single person teams, developers will be able to self publish on the Discord store with 90% revenue share going to the developer.

Yet another great news for game developers.

Yeti Dynamics shows us what if the moon were replaced with some of our planets:

On Jupiter, you might be able to make out the 4 big moons, They all have orbits larger than our moons orbit. but I stuck them on the far side of jupiter so that they could be seen so it looks as if they are closer (to Jupiter) than they really are.

Another video from them showing what if the moon were at the same distance as the International Space Station is also fascinating.

∞ Epic Removed the Infinity Blade Trilogy from App Store

Epic removed the Infinity Blade Trilogy from App Store because:

With the development of Spyjinx and other projects, it has become increasingly difficult for our team to support the Infinity Blade series at a level that meets our standards.

I enjoyed Infinity Blade when it was first released. It has truly pushed iOS gaming as a platform. It's a shame that they can no longer keep them on the App Store.

∞ On Switching from an iPad Pro and a Macbook to a Pixelbook

Fraser Speirs, who designed and deployed the world's first whole-school 1:1 iPad deployment, talking about their work and Chromebooks:

Fast forward to 2018 and virtually all of the work I do at school is now in Google Docs. I don’t think I’ve created anything new outside Google Docs for a couple of years now.

...

As for doing “real work” on the Chromebook, I’ve been in that world for some time already. That part wasn’t even a concern for me. I had proven all that some time ago - my Macbook literally had no non-default software on it except Chrome. It effectively was a Chromebook in all but name. Sure, the Chromebook doesn’t run all the software in the world, but it runs the software that I actually need and use every day absolutely flawlessly.

And,

Ironically, the web browser was what opened the door for the first Mac revival in the original iMac era. The lack of a fully-capable web browser is what’s closing the door on the iPad for me.

For a lot of people, the lack of a desktop web browser is the reason why the 2018 iPad Pro isn't a "real" computer, even though it's performing better than many of the Macbook Pros.

∞ 39 Points of a Blogging Style Guide

A great read of Robert Heaton's blogging style guide. Calling out the 19th point:

"They" is a great word for referring to an unspecified person of an unspecified gender.

100% agree. It's not only the right word, but also much easier since you don't have to even think about the word choice. I also find myself starting to use They more often even if I know the person's gender.
