    @keita I know this feeling well. Don’t let it get to you. Spend as much time outside as you can, and if you’re doing work, don’t work from home. Go to a cafe.

      @keita The other commonly missed thing about modern controllers is the buttons aren't binary — even the ones that look like simple switches are actually pressure sensitive. @whoisashygirl

        @lechindianer Neither do I, but I have the controller, haha. It's basically a newer, slightly nicer built version of the 360 controller.

          @keita It's much better for a lot of things, actually, things requiring finessed inputs like racing. And, well, if your gaming PC is under your TV like mine is, mouse input is AWFUL.

            @lechindianer Well you’re just wrong then! :P (Really, the analogue sticks on the Xbox One controllers are in utterly maddening relative locations.)

              @33mhz @johngordon Wow, that sounds dramatic indeed! I hope he heals fast.

                @jws Turned out to be a read herring anyway. As you were. :(

                  Anybody had any issues with SSL and HTTP/1.1 pipelining/keepalive? But only in Safari?

                    @jws @oluseyi Mashups are everywhere, but they’re no longer novel — so the label wore off.

                      @jws Is “swiper, no swiping” something Dora says a lot?

                        @33mhz Jeez. I hope he’s doing OK! What happened?

                            @lechindianer Support is definitely better for the Xbox controllers than the PS4 ones. Up until now I’ve had to run a tool called InputMapper (IIRC) to make it work. But it’s a much nicer controller. And the Xbox’s continued use of AA batteries is horrid.

                              @lechindianer I really like it. I’ve got an Xbox One controller that came with my rift but it feels weirdly shapen and less ergonomic by comparison.

                                @jws @keita I wonder if there’s room for a fictional narrative in a metalayer atop our own world. I might get some enjoyment from it if I felt it developed, and it wasn’t just a packet of stats that I was pressing buttons to inefficiently increment.

                                  @keita I think photography, by contrast, is an activity which greatly adds to the experience of being outside. You're actively involving yourself in your environment, reinterpreting it, absorbed by it.
