Craft Time: Make A Thanksgiving Day Chocobo Hat

It’s 4pm on Thanksgiving Day. You’re probably stuffed with turkey right now, or in the process of stuffing yourself with turkey, or still waiting to stuff yourself with turkey. (If you ate ham, get the hell out of here.) You know what that means? It’s time to make hats! Making turkey hats is an old Thanksgiving tradition. It’s not hard to see why; turkey hats combine two of our favorite things: food and fashion. Hats also make your head look bigger, which will convince people that your brain is huge. People who wear hats are often the life of the party. Need proof? Check out this picture of Spock. Boy what a boring guy. Now, what if we throw a hat on him? Instant party animal! You too can be this guy. But instead of making the traditional Turkey hat for Thanksgiving, why not make a hat using gaming’s first bird: the Chocobo. Read on to find out how. Making Chocobo hats is a fun family affair. It’s also practical. If that annual post-meal brawl breaks out, you’ll already be armed with scissors. Here’s what you’ll need to get started: Construction paper (all colors) Scissors Glue (edible) The unspoken disgust of your older cousins Kenny Loggin’s Top Gun Soundtrack Begin by cutting a piece of yellow paper into a large circle (don’t worry it can’t feel anything.) This is what a circle looks like: Next, cut out a beak and some eyes. Here is what you’re aiming for: If your uncle begins screaming about how his ex-wife wrecked his boat or your nephews start a backyard wrestling match in the living room, crank up Kenny Loggin’s "Danger Zone" and shut out the sound of smashing dishes. Next: putting it all together. Families can be hard. Is your mom screaming at you to take out the garbage? Is your Dad yelling at you, because he doesn’t want you to cut off all the cat’s hair? Is some old man complaining that you broke into his house and stole his war bonds? Ignore them. They don’t understand you. You’re an artist. You need those war bonds to make your Chocobo hat. It’s time to put the whole thing together. Glue your beak and eye to your circle and then affix the whole Chocobo head to another piece of paper (or war bond) and wrap it around your head. Feel free to add a few little extra details to your hat. Really make it your own. Add some extra tuffs off hair or a ruffled brow. If your Chocobo is filled with friendship and magic, add some glitter. If you’ve followed our instructions carefully, you should end up with something like this: *Results may vary There you have it. You are now free to experience the true joys of Thanksgiving. Throw away the unused scraps of paper (ignore their cries for mercy; they weren’t good enough to make the cut.) Now, go have some pie and hug your grandma – not only will she be freaked out by your new hat, she’ll won’t know what to make of this random affection. And remember, if you get bored later, you can always make Chocobo hats for your pets.

    Microsoft expands App Assure to create better compatibility to Snapdragon PCs

    Microsoft is expanding App Assure to greatly help developers address compatibility for Windows on Snapdragon.

    Qualcomm and Microsoft are teaming around encourage more developers to create their apps appropriate for Windows on Snapdragon. The firms announced a fresh App Assure program that can help software makers address the compatibility conditions that have plagued ARM-based PCs.

    Microsoft first launched App Assure in 2018 to greatly help developers transition Windows 7 apps to Windows 10 before Microsoft ended support for Windows 7 in 2020. Likewise, the most recent iteration of App Assure is intended to greatly help app makers optimize for Qualcomm’s mobile processors while accumulating confidence for customers.

    “Microsoft’s App Assure with FastTrack program is really a ongoing service made to help customers, developers, and independent software vendors address application compatibility issues, at no additional expense for qualifying customers,” Qualcomm writes in a statement. “A focus of this program is to engage vendors to provide compatibility of Windows 10 apps on Snapdragon compute platforms in order that users working anywhere can confidently use Windows 10 apps on Snapdragon-powered devices.”

    While Qualcomm hasn’t shared additional information on what this program will specifically do, Microsoft chief product officer Panos Panay had earlier explained that it could include getting the company’s engineers build relationships developers to obtain their apps to work across most of Windows.

    Panos teased the program expansion when Qualcomm first introduced the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 earlier. He said that ensuring compatibility was an integral priority for Microsoft also, that was “putting a whole large amount of energy into this.”
