A few days ago, Nintendo stopped selling digital software on the eShop for the 3DS and Wii U. You can no longer legally digitally purchase some of my favorite games on the 3DS.
Even for the Wii U the closure of the shop means you lose access to some great games that haven’t made it over to the Switch.
I can only hope that some of these eventually get remakes or remasters, but the truth is that the original versions of those games are now unavailable unless you want to shell out a lot of money for a physical copy.Read blog post
I’m happy to announce that PHP Monitor 6 is entering its final phase of development. My current plan is to release PHP Monitor 6 around the last week of April. I also have an announcement to make!
As usual, the app will be available free of charge with the source code available on GitHub. Yet, as the release approaches, I wanted to do something special for my sponsors.
Over the last year and a half, a bunch of amazing people have supported me and my progress on PHP Monitor.
As a thank you for sponsoring me (and an incentive for potential new sponsors), you will now get exclusive sponsor access to work-in-progress builds, starting with PHP Monitor 6. You can try out these features and provide critical feedback and hopefully very few bug reports in preparation for the big update.Read blog post
Earlier today I rolled out support for modern image formats on this website, specifically for images on my blog.
In effect, this means adopting the two most widely supported new standards, which are AVIF and WebP.
Because I can make use of the
<picture> element, the effective adoption rate does not really matter: each browser will evaluate the different
<source> tags inside the
<picture> element and choose the first image format that they support. Older browsers will fall back to the original image, which I upload as a PNG or JPG.
I’m pleased to announce the immediate availability of PHP Monitor 5.8, which includes a toggle to automatically start the app at login, and adds the new PHP Monitor Self-Updater, which should make installing newer builds (updates) of the app a breeze.
In addition to these important additions in preparation for version 6.0, I have also added some minor bug fixes and improvements which are listed below.Read blog post
