I love single use command line tools. This one helps you determine a URL’s image weight and even lets you know where you should start optimizing.
While I never bought into the Flappy Bird hype, I totally get the appeal of infuriatingly brief casual games. So I decided to try out PAKO after finding it over the weekend.
The TL;DW (too long; didn’t watch) of the video above is this:
- Pick a closed, arena-style level.
- Don’t crash.
- Avoid cops.
Even though I haven’t had a single round that’s lasted longer than 35 seconds, it manages to be loads of fun without being throw-your-phone frustrating. If you’ve got a couple bucks burning a hole in your pocket — it’s only $0.99 on iOS, but slightly more expensive on other platforms — it’s definitely worth it.
I used to have some little bad days, and I kept them in a little box. And one day, I threw them out into the yard. “Oh, it’s just a couple little innocent bad days.” Well, we had a big rain. I don’t know what it was growing in but I think we used to put eggshells out there and coffee grounds, too. Don’t plant your bad days. They grow into weeks. The weeks grow into months. Before you know it you got yourself a bad year. Take it from me. Choke those little bad days. Choke ‘em down to nothin’.
