Great version of Addicated to Love done metal

Super excited to see the new Micro.blog 2.0, the details look very inviting and the interface much friendlier. Thanks to @manton and the team for all the hard work. ‘

Spent the evening working on a new icon set idea, starting with the ever popular folders. View here on Dribbble

So scribble on iPadOS 24 is pretty good, even with my terrible hand writing.

That moment #Windows10 throws up a dialog saying your version of Windows 10 is about to reach end of life and all you can think is “uhhhhhh what? I have the latest” Especially when it says a reboot is needed.

One word to describe the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series …. dang

First day using the magic keyboard cover on my iPad Pro. Initial impressions are the build is solid and that bracket in the top cover to adjust the angle is amazing, I don’t know how they did it but it feels secure and still adjusts easily.

Follow along on my No Man’s Sky game stream. We encounter some weird situations like crashes and falling through planets, yet we still managed to get some base building done and plenty of game tips along the way. Great for those just getting started.

So glad to see a new episode of the Micro Monday Podcast drop in my player this week. Thanks @Macgenie.

I also love the story of how John @CheeseMaker got his name, that made me smile.

Spent some time with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 tonight, it is amazing! Is probably the best way I can describe it. Oh to have the hardware to run this thing in VR, now that would be incredible.

A little synth coding music for a late Monday night Unity session.

I will not be surprised if my Apple watch actually says to me “Hey you finally completed a circle this year!”

Hands up all those who feel like they’ve seen everything on YouTube at this point? I spend more time saying “seen it” than anything else on my media streaming services thanks to 2020.

I want share a tweet I posted here, I think it is something software and hardware manufacturers need to really think about. I’m not advocating leaving or staying with any platform, I’m just saying there are always consequences.

The Unity Device Simulator makes mobile layout easier.

Show notes

Unity is a great platform for developing mobile games and applications, but configuring the game window to show how it will look on a device can be a pain. Until I discovered the Device Simulator package!

Listen on for the details.

A little late night funky blues to keep the brain moving

🎵

Totally loving SF Symbols, it has speeded up my early design process tremendously. I just throw in an icon as an idea and keep moving forward. Prototype version 1 done in no time ready for reflection and refinement.

Just discovered this @SketchApp plugin that is simply amazing. Going to try it for a couple of days but for the price it fills a massive gap for me when using Sketch. sketchrunner.com @sketch_runner

Another every other Tuesday, that means Xcode beta 4 is another huge download. Let’s skip new features next year and have Apple work on Delta downloads for Xcode beta versions? :)

OK I’ve missed streaming the past couple of weeks as OBS died on my PC, but I’m planning to get it fixed for this weeks streams starting Friday. Thanks for being patient. twitch.tv/grfxg

Breaking Benjamin Iris Cover

I have always been a fan of this song by The Goo Goo Dolls. The cover version by a band I always enjoy Breaking Benjamin is just as good.

It is amazing to me that after all this time it is still near impossible to find a way to export from Sketch directly to a react component that doesn’t require either some hijinx or clunky 3rd party system. Unless I’m missing something and someone wants to enlighten me please?

Finally that horrible battery icon is gone in Mac Big Sur beta 3. The World is finally starting to self correct!

I don’t care for some of the Big Sur icons but I do love the new sounds. Emptying the trash feels a lot friendlier on the ears now :)
