Dropbox Paper: When Less Is More

 

I’ve been a regular Evernote user for a few years now, using it numerous times a week to compose blog posts, articles, and announcements for several of my websites. Evernote allowed me to write in a somewhat distraction-less environment that made me focus totally on my content, not on its form.

While I love Evernote, I sometimes find myself forced to fool around with font families, font sizes, and the likes… stuff that sometimes takes my attention away from my content.

I’m surprised that I discovered Dropbox Paper just a few days ago because it’s been in beta for half a year! It caught my attention immediately as a potential upgrade from Evernote, so I went ahead and tested it.

Project Space Sector

Project Space Sector is a spiritual successor to Master of Orion 2, the turn-based space 4X strategy game from the 90’s that we love so much. This will be a faithful successor, that is true in spirit to the series. With all the complexity and depth of a big and complex 4X game.

You can follow the team’s progress here:
Space Sector | Everything about Space and Sci-Fi Strategy Games.

I’ve been following this blog for years. The folks behind both the blog and the game know what they’re doing, so the result should be very interesting. I hope they’ll be able to give an estimated release date in the next few months.

Petition for Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis Special Edition

Went2Play, a studio founded by Patrik Spacek has been working on a special edition of the classic 90s PC game Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. It features remastered graphics and everything it needs to feel like a brand new game. Problem is, they don’t have the rights. Disney does.

There’s currently an online petition asking Disney Studios to give them the rights to release the game. Their objective is to collect 5 000 signatures in order to present the petition to Disney.

You can sign the petition here:
Give Went2Play rights to develop a IJ: Fate of Atlantis Special Edition!

They need less than 600 signatures as of now.

The battle to conquer Orion is set to become even more challenging. On December 1, Master of Orion’s anticipated “Revenge of Antares” DLC will become available, giving access to independent civilizations, a new victory condition and more. The expansion also introduces three new playable races to the massive galaxy. Arriving in the DLC expansions are the Trilarians, Gnolam, and Elerians — formidable aliens that will open up new paths to victory as commanders strive for dominance of the galaxy.

Now That TwitterFeed Has Shut Down…

It came to me as a surprise to discover that TwitterFeed was permanently shutting down on October 31st 2016. They announced it in an email just a few weeks prior, out of the blue.

We’re writing to let you know that Twitterfeed will be shutting its doors on October 31st, 2016. It’s been one heck of a run and we can’t thank you enough for your loyal usage and support over the years.

Although they recommended in their email announcement to move to either Buffer or dlvr.it, I didn’t like the idea of moving from a free service to a paid one…

From what I can see, the best 100% free alternative to TwitterFeed is IFTTT. I’m able to achieve the same results with ease and it works great every time.

See you over at IFTTT.
